Great Phone

I have owned the Note 2 and Note 3 prior to this and at first I bought the Nexus 6. I returned the Nexus 6 because I missed the features of the Samsung line of phones. The Note 4's display is awesome and the battery life is about the best I have seen. I go about 14 -15 hours between charges and only charge it when I sleep. I also keep the NFC, bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LTE turned on all the time. The adaptive charging is fantastic and it seems that the battery life gets better after a month or so. Sound quality of calls is about the best I have had, and playing audio from the speaker is great. The volume for incoming calls is pretty good as well. Samsung has made some changes that I don't like, for example compared to the Note 3, you can only use the hover feature while using the pen and not you finger. Not a big deal, but I don't use the pen very often. I live in Las Vegas, NV. and switched from AT&T to T-Mobile. The LTE works great, compared to AT&T I get about 15 Mbbs down in the exact some area that I got about 2-3 Mbbs with AT&T. The best speed I have had is 42 Mbbs with T-Mobile. Pictures turn out great and customizing the device is pretty much endless. I do wish it had the 8 core processor, but apps still open very fast even with multi-tasking. The Wi-Fi calling is a nice plus and call quality is great. I have not had a dropped call yet. Over all this is a great phone.
