Is there a way to trigger Google's voice search by long pressing the home button from the lock screen?//I'm coming off of an iPhone, and I'm used to long pressing the home button to access siri voice commands. I know "OK Google" will do it, but I'd rather press a button.

+Adam Riggins​ I found this article and a related app called Home 2, that might do the job. Here's the article, so read it before trying if you like. http://forums.androidcentral.com/t-galaxy-s-iii/232121-ready-speak-google-now-home-button-double-click-here.html

Any mac users have a way of getting files over 4GB on to their device? Android File Transfer for the Mac won't do it, and my office blocks the wifi transfers. I have a feeling I am out of luck...

Dropbox? You can also get a USB OTG adapter.

Before the great purge of 2015, I had seen a post on here about certain things to disable or tweak in order to get rid of lag and improve battery life. Could someone post those steps please?

Disable S-Voice. It's usually that simple. Personally, I would go through the master list of apps and disable everything that you don't use. I now have 29 preinstalled apps disabled and my device flies and I didn't even have to touch developer options. Also, install Greenify to control which apps are open in the background.

Back to point 1, make sure at least S-Voice is disabled if nothing else . That piece of bloat is the absolute devil.

Does Lollipop on the Note 4 have the setting where it will only connect the the 5ghz version of a wifi network if both 2.4 and 5 is available? The Nexus 6 has it, figured it was a lollipop thing.

I'm using Kitkat and I can do that. Just turn smart network off. Scan for WiFi, both bands show up, select what one you want

Any camera improvements in Lollipop on the Note 4? Specifically, better burst mode, better skin tone in low light settings, better shots of fast-moving objects, etc?

The burst mode in KK is less than great, at least in trying to capture a moving subject, and it is limited to 30 pics. I was hoping they would have improved shutter speed and removed the limit.

As for the skin tone, certain lighting conditions leave people looking really washed out, at least compared to other phone's cameras in my household.

how does the Moto360 stack up as a heart rate monitor compared to a dedicated one, like a Polar strap you would wear on your chest?

Dedicated is definitely better; heck, even my OTC finger clip blood oxygen sensor does better. There are many things to love; unfortunately, this is not one of them.

Before Photos, I had uploaded my pictures and videos to Google+ via the auto backup tool.  Once Google Photos came out, with the better "free storage" options, I decided to delete all 30k+ photos so I could reupload them and not have them count toward my sotrage limit.

The problem is that although the new auto backup tool said it was backing up photos, and it took about 4 solid days of uploading to finish, 99% of the photos are NOT showing up on the web or iOS app, nor in my Google Drive folder for Photos.  

It's like it thinks they are already there since I had uploaded them a long time ago, so it is not adding them to my library.

Any ideas?

Are there any good roms that incorporate the s-pen? Also, what's the best lollipop rom as far as stability?

Touchwiz based Roms keep all the functionality. I used to use Beans or Beanstown on my Note 2. Really smooth and full featured.

I read yesterday that in the latest Drive app for Android, there is code that hints at a camera upload feature like Dropbox has. Part of them splitting off Photos from Google Plus. Anyways, this would rule.
