The Galaxy Note 4 on Android 6.0.1 officially supports screen-off writing, here's how to enable it

Apart from the regular shebang that the latest Android flavor carries (Doze, Google Now on Tap), the device also scored a much-needed TouchWiz refresh and most importantly, a feature exclusive to the Galaxy Note 5 - screen-off memo.
Simply put, it allows you to pop out the S Pen Stylus and quickly jot down a note on the Galaxy Note 4's display without bothering to even turn it on. You can then discard or save it. Many Note 4 users will probably find this extremely useful.
Now, how to enable and use screen-off memo on your Marshmallow-ed Note 4? By default, it should be enabled, but we'll show you how to manually enable it in case something's amiss with your unit.
Should have been available from the start. The Note 4 is still capable even though it has TouchWiz.

Please shut the hell up. Every comment you've said I've ignored because 1. I don't have the time to address people like you and 2. I have better things to do but, you talk from pure speculation and sound ignorant as hell when you're attempting to diss Samsung. Just stop.

My T-Mobile Note 4 doesn't have Marshmallow yet so I can't comment on this great feature. But my Priv has MM. Wow, imagine that - a BlackBerry got carrier love before a Samsung. Blows that whole carrier updating argument right out of the water don't it?

At least it wasn't stupidly restricted to the Note 5 when it's functions is just a software enhancement, unlike some rotten fruits that restricted an app store app (Siri) to it's i4s, part of a jailbreak tweak (AirBlue Sharing) to it's i5 (AirDrop), and gesture shortcuts ( http://goo.gl/cqX3Wg ) to it's i6s (3D touch)...

Still have yet to receive Marshmallow on my AT&T Note 4.
