    For apps that have both a made for Samsung app in the Galaxy App Store and a Play Store version, which do you choose and why?

    Play Store, because it's my primary source due to selection and it's easier to manage updates from one app store.

    Typically Play Store. However the Galaxy App Store may post new versions quicker for Samsung specific apps.

    I use the Play Store for most stuff as well. I've downloaded a couple apps from Samsung's store b/c they aren't available on Play. I was just curious if there are many apps with Note specific features that aren't available from Play.

    I use both. Play store a little more, but for Samsung specific apps, the Samsung store.

    I use both if the Samsung version is more featured. Examples are Kindle (free Kindle book each month), The Weather Channel app seems more robust on Galaxy app store. That's all that comes to mind at the moment.

    Primarily the Play Store, but I do try to look for Galaxy apps because they may take more advantage of the edge features. So far I have only found the Weather Channel App. Nothing else has seemed to be of use for me yet.

    The main app I use the most is the Amazon Video Player app from the Galaxy App Store. It streams HDR 10 video through the app on the Note.

    I have noticed Playstore has more variation so that's the one I use, but if you are looking for specific Samsung apps then you can choose the galaxy app store.

    The play store is my go to for app/game downloads. The galaxy app store is solely for the built in apps in the phone like updates for AOD, samsung pay, etc. That's the only reason why I use the galaxy app store otherwise it's just play store for me

    This might need to be a separate thread...but how do I find/ensure I'm looking at the HDR 10 content? Is there a special section I'm just not seeing?

    Here's a list from a month or so ago that lists both Amazon Prime and Netflix content in HDR 10. Just remember for Netflix you have to subscribe to the 4k plan to get it. I only have the 2 screen 1080p plan. It's included in Prime. So if you already have Prime you don't need to do anything else.

    Where and how to watch HDR content on the Note 7

    Edit: In my app there's separate sections for both HDR TV included with Prime and a HDR Movies to rent or buy section.

    Thanks for this...couldn't find it and then poked around, went back to the "home" tab and then scrolled down and found the HDR sections.

    Google Play Store. It has more features and supports most devices.

    Transparent is good. Doesn't really take advantage of the HDR though. I've watched a little of Man in the High Castle, and it looks amazing. Haven't watched enough to form an opinion on the show itself.

    Actually started using the galaxy store as soon as I got the bad note 7 and use it quite a bit on my new replacement Note 7.

    I've never really been big on themes but I really like the Samsung ones and wallpapers and icon packs. Also edge add ons and camera add ons too. I don't play games much anymore but downloaded a few from the galaxy store. Some of them come with bonus content for galaxy owners. They seem to change the games up often.

    Last month contest of champions was on there but isn't anymore. It's weird how some games disappear from galaxy store after a while. It shows up installed both in Google play and galaxy app store which is nice. Amazon doesn't do that.

    I'm hoping some of the games and apps are more optimized for Samsung devices or stylus support. That drawing racing game is lots of fun.
