Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is the best phablet in the world. Period. Apple finally tossed its hat in the ring in 2014 and debuted its largest iPhone ever, but the giant screen on the iPhone 6 Plus was just a box that Apple wanted to check. The handset’s larger size is merely a response to shifting demand in the smartphone market, and Apple made almost no effort whatsoever to add unique new features to the phone that might take advantage of its huge 5.5-inch display.

But just because the Galaxy Note 4 is a terrific phablet, doesn’t mean that it’s perfect.

Smartphone and tablet component seller Etrade Supply published a new post on its blog on Friday, and it runs through the 10 most annoying things about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 phablet. All things considered, the Note 4 is probably the best smartphone Samsung has ever made, but there’s no question that there are some annoyances we would all like to see addressed in next year’s Note phablet model.

The site included several obvious items that are indeed quite annoying, including the “Gapgate” manufacturing issue that involves a gap between the glass on the face of the phone and the aluminum piece that wraps around its edges. Also included are an aggravating “OK Google” bug, random reboots and the lag that some users have experienced.

Head over to Etrade Supply’s blog linked below in our source section for the full list, along with some tips on how to address many of the issues you’ll find listed in the site’s post.
