I have been considering the Galaxy Note series (phones or tablets) for taking notes at work. I have used the Note 10.1 and loved its stylus for notes, but have never used the Note 3 or 4 beyond short stints at the store, and this really does not give me a feel for how it would be long term. I have tried a Surface 3 and found the result frustrating (I think mostly due to Win 8.1 in tablet mode), so I think I am forced to go with a Galaxy Note (either tablet or phone). For those of you with a Galaxy Note phone, do you feel like it is actually large enough to be useful in an everyday situation such as meetings? I don't have a good feel for how the smaller screen would play out in real life situations. Also I went to Best Buy last night and played with the Note 4 but the response was horribly slow; response to a screen tap would take up to 2s or more before anything happened. I don't know if this was normal or due to the demo software running on the phone or what. I know responsiveness is subjective (what some see as laggy will be fine with others), but what is the general consensus on this board with regards to how it compares with other phones, say an iPhone or an LG G2/G3? My G2 has been getting very slow of late but not as bad as what I saw last night by any means. I noticed while I was at the store that Samsung has now come out with an S-Pen variant of the Tab A; this is the first use of the S-Pen on anything besides the Note series that I have seen. They only had the display model and it has a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 so it is in many ways antiquated by today's standards. However it was interesting to see the S-Pen on other products. I would like to make a decision soon so any help would be appreciated.
