Android Tablets just got much better with the 4:3 aspect ratio

I'll show you the significance of the nexus 9 using the 4:3 screen aspect ratio and pushing the ecosystem to adopt it. Its the smartest move google has made since they went with a vertical user experience and phone UI on the Nexus 7 instead of landscape. It changed people's behavior and perception. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. 16:9 Tablets dont have any advantage outside of watching movies. The cons is that they are awkward to hold vertical and stretches everything out in landscape mode. I can tell already that The apps got better in the process because you are not viewing them in 16:9 landscape mode. Maybe thats one of the reason that developers didnt feel the need to create responsive apps for android because the experience wasnt ideal when viewing it in landscape mode.

 They are pros and cons when you use a 4:3 screen but the pros far outweighs the cons. The biggest upgrade out the gate are the apps themselves. They look much better in the 4:3 aspect ratio. They dont look as stretched as before. You can compare the twitter app or the movie preview screen on the nexus 10 and Nexus 9. The layout format is better. The 4:3 screen ratio is bad for movies but great for everything else. The Nexus 9 is a big move which won't be understood for a while. we know android is adopting Multi windows of some sort its coming so lets keep that in mind. Lets bring the overview area formerly known as the recent apps area into the equation. Its a multi tasking area where you can access your chrome tabs. You are going to be in the browser most of the time on the device. The 4:3 screen makes the multi window feature that google is working on more useful on a wider screen. 4:3 Nexus is the guide of the ecosystem. This is was a small but major move IMO. Tablets apps on android just got much better with one simple move.

If you want an unbiased and honest review look elsewhere. Engadget gives a great review as well as countless others. And I'm not talking about glowing reviews... Just unbiased. All you'll find here are biased comparisons to the iPad. If you take a shot every time he mentioned the iPad, you won't be making it to work today.

The Nexus 9 may not be perfect, but neither is any other device on the market (including the iPad). This device is meant to showcase Android Lollipop, which is exactly what it does. It's not meant for everyone.

When I hear more subjective data rather than objective coming out of a reviewers mouth, I wonder how they procured their position and/or kept it ... Unless of course they're being "gifted" by the company of the product they hold in such high esteem.

How do I...  - 
 
I'm trying to figure out how to keep past reminders from showing up in my inbox(without having to individually click each one and delete). I have a lot of daily reminders with one of my gmail accounts and they just overrun my inbox.

Anyone else having this issue?

This are some things i did as soon as i received my Note 4. If you use Google Now rather than Samsung's poorly made clone S-Voice, one step will speed up your home button.

I also suggest using Nova Launcher instead of Samsung's Launcher. Thebspeed increase is phenomenal.

Has anyone switched the Note 4 to ART runtime? Just got mine today and I'm contemplating. This phone is a beast! Gorgeous. Glad I picked it over the Nexus 6. Love pure Android, but love the design of this phone (and removable battery and SD card) more. #ARTruntime #GalaxyNote4

+Stefan Svartling so then it's just poor design. It IS a portable smartphone. It IS meant to be toted around. I'm sure plenty of men, who don't have purses, didn't think it would be a danger to carry this device in their front pocket. The Note 3 shares the same size and does not bend. It may not be as thin but it's obviously as big.

Just received my Nexus 9. The first thing I did was check for all the issues people are having and here is what I've come up with.

1. I do have some light bleed. Not gonna kill me.

2. It gets hot, but apparently no one bothered to check the actual temp. Mine seems to max at 50 Celsius which is fine. I just think it's the materials that make it seem worse. The heat isn't an issue.

3. Build quality. I dig it. There's a bit of flex in the center, but you have to really push. Who does that?

4. 4:3 ratio is awesome! Love it!

This thing is beautiful.

Can't wait to play with it some more.

***update***

Sadly, I returned the device. As much as I loved the size, ratio and lollipop, the build quality had no quality. The great from the back, though not horrible in CPU terms, was very bad from a manufacturing standpoint. It started eating the back panel material. That added to the light bleed and multiple people with issues had left me with no other choice but to return and not exchange. Total bummer.

This is why the Nexus line is important to Android. I know people debate whats better this and that but listen to Ballmer explain why the surface device aka their reference device for windows was the biggest play they ever made at the 1:17 mark. Maybe yall can connect the dots. OEMs need direction. You just dont toss out software and hope they get it. You have to lead them from A to Z. Microsoft by not creating a reference PC or Laptop gave windows a bad reputation that still lingers. Everyone is looking at the Nexus 6 and 9 so it forces the OEMs to step up their game. This is why samsung is being pushed into a corner because we know what the benchmark is. Android dont performance like that. You have someone to blame instead of blaming the platform. You have to create that benchmark.

Battery life is quite amazing after the T-Mobile update. This is with 1 hour and 40 minutes of screen time.

This is, by far and wide, the worst body shop I've ever used! I brought my car in there after the April 2010 hail storm that hit areas of Charleston. They promised me two weeks at the latest. 3 1/2 weeks later, I finally go in to get my car(not because they called to let me know, but because I called them...customer service is horrible too!)...when I get there, my car looks worse than when I brought it in! It was a new car with some hail dings when I brought it in and it looked like a used car with a horrible paint job when it came out. Pieces were broken, falling off. There were swirls in the paint. The car still had hail dings. AND it wasn't even washed or detailed when they brought it out to me! I freaked out, to say the least. The manager, Robert, was "embarrassed" and waived my deductible and promised the car would be ready by the following Tuesday. Tuesday rolled around and I didn't get my car OR a phone call to say it wasn't ready. I had to be the one to call late afternoon, just before they closed to find out that they needed until Thursday(which it wasn't ready by, and once again I had to be the one to inquire!) Today is Friday, another day of promised completion and when I talked to the guys over there they said and "85% chance of completion"! Can you believe that!? These guys F'd up so bad the first time, and took so long, and they still have no sense of urgency! Twice with one car they screwed up! I can only believe that any good review on here is a fake or someone who really didn't look closely at the work done upon receiving their car back.
