Just got my new Note 4 several days ago (T-Mobile). Came preinstalled with Lollipop 5.1.1. I've been using my Note 3 as my main computer (desktop bit the dust) since December, 2013, so almost two years. I'm keeping my Note 3.
So far, I am quite impressed with the Note 4. Running very smooth, faster than my Note 3, and (knock on wood ...) so far no glitches.
Had serious Bluetooth issues with my Note 3 (I have 14 Bluetooth devices). Have not had any problems with Bluetooth on my Note 4 (yet ...).
Battery life is pretty good, about the same as my Note 3 when it was brand new. I am going to get the ZeroLemon 10000mAh Extended Battery for my Note 4 soon .... Have been using the ZeroLemon 10000mAh Extended Battery in my Note 3 around 19 months which is awesome (can go for 1 1/2 - 2 days with medium use; 24 hours or more with heavy use).
I had to order a different Hub/Card Reader for my Note 4 since it only has USB 2.0. Transferring files via Bluetooth is a breeze, although very slow. S Beam will NOT transfer files from Note 3 to Note 4, and will only transfer files less than 1MB from Note 4 to Note 3, which will not work for me. I need to transfer files from my Note 3 to my Note 4 .....
Smart Switch does NOT work at all either way. So, I had to use the Bluetooth method for transferring files, until I get the new Card Reader/Hub for my Note 4, then I can connect my Samsung 1TB Hard Drive directly to my Note 4 (via the hub/card reader).
I like the new Navigation features on the Note 4. Camera is awesome, and much faster than the Camera on my Note 3, which lags terribly.
I really wanted the Note 5, but I need the Micro-SD Card Reader and removable battery. If Samsung does not bring back the sd card reader and removable battery, the Note 4 might be my last Samsung device ...
So far, these are the Bluetooth devices I've tested with my Note 4, with NO issues (yet ...): 1) Gear S smartwatch, 2) Logitech keyboard (full-sized), 3) Favi (mini keyboard), 4) Rii (mini keyboard), 5) Bludio headphones, 6) LuguLake speakers.
I would give the Note 4 a 10/10 +++. When I add the 128GB Micro-SD cards, to both my Note 3 (have only 64GB micro for now) and Note 4 (only have 8GB micro), and the ZeroLemon 10000mAh Extended Battery to my Note 4, I'll be cookin' on the front burner .....
Waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday for great prices on the 128GB Micro-SD cards .....
