WHICH PHONE IS LIKE A TABLET LIKE A LABTOP LIKE A PHONE?

Yes I am confused and it's no wonder! Just look at the selections put out by just Samsung alone.
I need your help - HELP & Quick as Santa will be here soon and if I don't figure out want I want I not going to be getting a darn thing!
I will tell you what I need and want; If you could lend your professional assertions on what you think will work....
So I need:
a phone & texting in moderation. I only use 300 min per mos on my cell; I text mostly & surf the web.
A great camera - over 10 mp - 13 - 16 or more even better!
Fast speed
Ability to watch movies in high quality video
Use as a mobile hot spot
Able to load excel, word & corel paint shop pro

It may just be that I really do need 2 items.

- A decent 4g cell phone for calls, texting, internet use & a mobile hot spot
- Then a tablet or note for the word, excel, corel software & watching movies. It would be nice to be able to add a slim keyboard and hook this up to my cell which will be my mobile hot spot.

I've been looking at:
LG G3
Galaxy Note 4
Galaxy S4 or S5
HTC One Max
I no nothing about these Yogas that are out or the other ones you can flip around & add a keyboard to. I am open to suggestions

Problem is whenever I think I find one I want , it's not a phone or I can't have excel etc on it or there's no camera.
I look forward to your help.

While I can install apps to look at an edit Excel sheets, your list is akin to what they call an Unicorn. Good hunting?

For me I went with a smart phone, a way to tether and carry a real laptop.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
