    On my GS3, if I swiped through home screens in one direction only, I would eventually end up back at the "main" home screen.

    In this Note 4, if I swipe left I get through 5 screens and it stops. To get back home, I have to either hit the Home button or press the tiny home icon on the screen.

    Without switching launchers, any way to emulate the GS3 behavior on this Note 4? Haven't been able to find anything in the user manual...

    Hold down your finger on the screen until you see the widgets icon and other icons at the bottom. One of the other icons is home screen settings

    If you get rid of the Flipboard homescreen you will be able to continuously scroll through your homescreens.

    I was able to disable the Flipboard which took up one of the home screens, but I still can't get the home screens to continuously scroll.

    I'm experiencing the same thing. I've also disabled Flipboard, but when I get to the last screen, it won't wrap. Home screen settings doesn't have any options other than "transition effects" (which simply changes the effect when going from one screen to another), and the Flipboard thing.

    Replying to my initial post...

    I can't get that behavior, but what I did was move my "main" home screen to the center point. That means only two swipes in either direction to reach my other 4 screens. Better setup for my use.

    Initially, I had the same issues as the OP but I have since disabled Flipboard/Briefing and I now get continuous scrolling.

    I agree -- that's the best solution.

    Flipboard is off. Still can't continuously scroll - whether in Cards mode or 3-D mode. Weird. I'm on Verizon in the US - wonder if the model makes a difference?

    At any rate, my centered home screen seems to have resolved my issue for now.

    You might have hit the nail on the head. I'm on VZW too and I'm having the same problem. I'm likely going to do what those two other users mentioned and move my main home screen to the center.

    A quick glance through the replies and it seems as though the UK users have continuous scroll, while we US users do not.

    Go figure...

    Well, I'm on US Cellular, and I have continuous scrolling. Might be a Verizon issue...
