    To get to your Homescreen settings, long press (hold down) on a blank past of any Homescreen (anywhere without a widget or app shortcut), or use 2 fingers to "pinch" the Homescreen.

    I have never in my life gone into settings to edit my Homescreen. Terrible tip, but if you notice, later in the video, he pinches the home screen.

    I opened the search in settings & searching tab or view bring up no results. I'm thinking they left that feature out of our version...

    I saw that manual too. This one is direct from vzw. I know how you're supposed access the ability to switch, but it's not there.

    Also, the search feature in the settings menu is very thorough, but shows nothing.

    So, either it's not there on the vzw version, or is completely buried & hidden. I have manually checked, display, accessibility, & other sections. Nothing.

    Does anything come up when you type in Grid or list?

    No sir. Can't imagine why they would leave that feature out.

    I have to agree, I'm on the Verizon version and I do not see it. In fact, the manual is even different. I Googled the manual for "Galaxy Note 4" and saw what the OP was talking about on page 144, but I then Googled the manual for my particular model number and found the manual on Samsung's site for the SM-N910V, and the manual is different, and no such instructions do exist on the corresponding page, nor anywhere in that manual.

    Thanks for verifying. The manual I linked as part of that discussion came straight from Vzw's site, so I'm sure it's the same one you found for our version.
    I spent quite a while skimming it for anything about this feature &, like you, found nothing.

    I have to admit though, I actually prefer it all in one list. Didn't like that about the s4.when I went to tweak something I didn't access on a regular basis, I always had to search the tabs anyway instead of just scrolling one list. Still find it very strange that they left this out of some versions though.

    On a different note, not that I needed another reason to live this phone, but I plugged my headphones in a bit ago while playing a game. The standard headphone icon showed up in my notification bar, but instead of ignoring it like I used to on the s4 because the "suggested apps" or whatever are crap, I opened the notification shade. It had the "now playing" notification from Google play with the last song I was listening to.

    This is a huge win for me. I have all access, so that's almost all I use to stream music. I'd have been happy if it provided a quick link, but to give me the ability to start playback author leaving my game rocks.
