Really? Does that work in NZ? I tried OTA for the first update that came out, and for me, was only available in Kies. Didn't think to try OTA again this time.

I went into store and just got the phone changed. I had bought the phone 6 days ago and they have a simple replace policy for any issues within the first 14 days (dick smith!!). I am glad I didnt buy parallel imported - yes it is sometimes cheaper, but no way you get this sort of service or warranty handling

It downloaded etc fine but wouldnt install, probably because my phone is rooted, so just grabbed the update from sammobile and flashed it via odin instead.

EDIT: Not sure about other methods but upgrading via Odin breaks root.

For those have root and want a custom recovery, TWRP is now available for the Note 4 and seems to work nicely.

Something new came up overnight for my spark note 4. 102 megs. Didn't really say anything about it in the notes for it.

Is Screen at the top of your battery usage? How do Android System and Android OS compare with the screen % usage

Any ideas on where to get a Note 4 S View case?

Noel Leemings were happy to debit my credit card 6 weeks ago, and now say it will another 4 weeks before it arrives

Billing in advance like that is a pretty poor customer centric policy IMHO

Thank you for using my money.

My wife wont use hers until she gets a cover and I have also been waiting for NL, so in the interim I just grabbed a $13 clone off TradeMe to at least get her using it.

PB had the non charging ones in a few weeks ago. I got a gold one because why not.

When the charging ones are finally in I will get a black one.

Screen is on top yes. The Android system and Google play services is taking up an aweful lot of battery as well. I just deactivated S Voice, S Health and removed location reporting for Grabone (which is a battery hog as well).

I didnt think I would have to do all that. But ya. Lets see what sort of battery I get today. I was hoping for a good 5 hours screen on time (texting, surfing etc)
