13 things every Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owner should do. While this post is aimed at new Note 4 owners, it should be read by every phone owner. Someday, one of these tips is going to save you. Trust me. Security and safety actions should be the first thing you do. Second, there is a reason developers post app updates. They fix things that are wrong. Don't tempt fate. Update your apps every day. Third, customize your home screen. (Apple owners, skip this one) It is amazing how much time you can save by optimizing your home screen to handle your patterns. SWMBO has her apps spread across several screens, and I am always telling her to put her most used apps on the home screen. Next, set up OK Google so that it works from any screen. (Again, Apple owners, ignore this one). KitKat and Google search now permit you to adjust your settings to respond to the OK Google voice command anywhere. Really cool.Finally, while the battery on these things last a long time, get a spare, and put it in your briefcase or pocket. Sooner or later, you will need it. (Oops, sorry Apple owners, you can skip this one too). All in all, this is a good checklist for any smartphone owner. Check it out.
