The headphones that come with the Note4 are fairly decent. Fit in the ear nicely with little discomfort. 

Good all round sound, maybe a slightly lack of bass but all round a good pair. 




The little things make the biggest difference.

Anyone had any trouble with their Micro SD card unmounting and mounting again? 
I have a SanDisk 8Gb one in and at times I notice the phone going through this process, the card has been formatted by the phone itself but I still get this issue.

....ideas?

No to the SD issue (haven't loaded one yet) but it reminded me to ask if anyone is having USB OTG issues? I can't get my USB XBox controller to work... anyone else?

Its sad that all of NZ only has the Exynos version. Im getting very poor battery with the Exynos, around 3 hours screen on time. Cant seem to find the Snapdragon anywhere.

If it isn't present as an option and also isn't disabled when the system is set to silent, then this has been specified in the CSC files (Camera sounds = always on is a region-specific feature due to regulations in some countries around taking candid photos in public) and can't be changed without flashing another region's software or rooting the device.

Anyone seen a good deal on this? Even the parallel importers are charging the same as normal retail.

Installed my Spigen Crystal Hard surface screen protector this morning (ordered direct from Spigen, shipped USPS)

It is only just wide enough to cover the whole screen, so install was a bit of a pain to line it up correctly. 
However, fairly invisible once one. Only grip, the S-Pen tip doesn't flow across the surface as smoothly as it did without a screen protector on, no big deal however.

ALSO! Spigen crystal clear ultra hybrid case installed. Fits perfect and exactly what I was after. Doesn't reduce the look of the phone that much! Still looks the business.

On release day I cancelled my pre-order with them after they displayed some pretty spectacular lack of knowledge on when they might have ANY stock. Shame, as their pre-release price was great.

Mind you, easy to offer a greta price if you don't actually bother selling the phones.

Im still using my note 3. The app list on the note 4 sucks being paginated grids instead of a list, and I hate the lack of a menu button. Wouldnt mind if it was reconfigurtable back to a menu button and holding it did the task switch, because I use menu more.

Also there is no clock in the pull down bar, only on the notification bar which disappears when you pull down, it only has the date. So you have to push the bar back up to see the time to get an idea when notifications came in.

Have had the keyboard go all whacky on it, have had it rotate to landscape view when held portratit a couple of times using it, but I turned off all the silly smart camera options I could find and have not seen it do it again since then.

S Pen isn't compatible with the Google keyboard either. Multiple keystrokes are registered while the S Pen hovers.
