    Got mine earlier and holy crap is it a huge upgrade from my old Nexus. The screen is beautiful, batter life was great. battery was maybe 40% charge when I unboxed the phone and with me setting things up and using it nonstop to play around with it the battery lasted for a solid 3+ hours before finally dying. This was my first experience with the S-Pen and it was pretty nice to use, just messed around with the memo's a bit.

    I got the black model and it felt nice in the hand. I had no problem using it 1 handed and watching youtube it was nice and light to hold up with 1 hand. So far i'm def liking this phone.

    one question for those that have had the Note before. when you have the split screen, is there a way to change one of the boxes and make it full screen? I was messing around with the split screen and then trying to figure out how to make youtube full screen but couldn't figure it out, other than adjusting the divider.

    Congrats on the new phone...it's a winner for sure....On my N2 if you tap in the middle of both screens you can either slide one up/down to larger or you see icons to tap for full screen....

    Look at their (Foxfi app) description on the Play store. Do the S4 work around.
    Glad you're enjoying your new phone.

    Got mine today. Was initially disappointed about the Foxfi and SVTP mobile hotspot failure due to Verizon. But I saw a solution on another website which works! When the ERROR screen from Verizon says "Use of this service requires a subscription to Mobile Hotspot....." simply hit the home button and do not cancel the error screen and your mobile hotspot will work!!! Thanks to my unlimited data and this solution, my family will be connected and entertained on our 5 hour car journey today.

    I'm getting mine in about 2 hours. I have one question though: Screen protector? Or no screen protector? I plan to use the S-Pen quite a bit, and if I get microscratches on my screen, I'm going to be angry, but I don't typically like responsiveness WITH screen protectors. How are they working with or without?
