So, the same screen size between the Note 3 and 4 means I can use the screen protectors I have on my current Note 3?

5.7" correct?

Depends on whether or not the proximity sensors on the front of the phone have changed or not. Personally, I wouldn't bother and would purchase one made for the Note 4.

What kind of a super rare/expensive screen protector are you talking about reusing, instead of just buying a new one specifically for the $800+ Note 4 you will have just obtained? As well, the glass on the Note 4 is not flat, it has rounded edges(not talking about the Note 4 Edge), which may prove interesting for screen protector production.

The front facing camera seems to have a bigger hole and the edges of the Note 4 are curved so the same screen protectors might not be the best to use. Get a good new one.

The Note 4 "should" cost a lot less than it does. Given that it's no more than an incremental slight upgrade from the Note3, I'll upgrade when I get around to it. There's no rush in it for me. I may only get it because my T-Mobile Jump plan lets me. However, I take issue with the whole "$800+" upgrade stuff. I want to know what I can repurpose from my existing device such as screen protectors because honestly, I just don't see buying everything all new again simply because they moved this up one number.

I'll wait and see for myself if anything is compatible between 3 and 4. Thank you for all your feedback.
