After nearly three years with my old Android smartphone -- a reliable workhorse with admirable battery life, the Motorola Razr Maxx -- it was time for a refresh. After reading a bunch of reviews, I chose the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Often described as a "phablet", the extra-large phone is roughly the size of an iPhone 6 Plus, but holds the advantage of not being an Apple product. It also includes a built-in stylus for taking notes and dropping some art on my peeps.
The first two sketches -- each drawn in less than 60 seconds -- are depicted below.
As an aside, for the life of me I can't figure out how Microsoft OneNote is supposed to work. I was easily able to create a notebook and add some pages and sketch out a few drawings. How to export said pages has proven to be extremely frustrating. There isn't an export option. I used the sync feature to try to push the files up to the proverbial cloud; but multiple efforts to access the pages in the notebook using my laptop resulted in a blank page (Chrome) or a never-ending "progress" indicator (IE10).
How'd I get these images uploaded? Kludge central: I took a screen-cap of each on the Galaxy and simply emailed 'em to myself. Final edits occurred using GIMP, the most excellent open-source analog of Photoshop.
In any event, if I can't figure out how to use OneNote, my guess is there are many other users similarly challenged.
