An issue I have with camera MP's is who needs it ? Only a pro photographer IMHO and they won't be using a smartphone camera. You know what happens when you open an iPhone 8Mp picture on your Note 4 ? The screen can only show around 3 Mp's.. So your even higher MP pics taken on the Note 4 all get displayed at 3 Mp's. Most smartphones only view at 1080p - thats only 2MP - so your pics get shown even lower MP's then the Note 4. A 4K Widescreen Super HD TV cost $5 grand and up - the best screen in the world -yet they only display 8 Megapixels..
Point: High MP's camera pictures use too much space and most people will never need the MP's. And unless you PRINT pictures.. fairly big ones.. You still WONT see it.. and again.. If you're a hired pro.. try showing up at a wedding with even a 41 MP Windows phone and see how long you have a job.. HTC has a low MP camera that still takes high quality pics

TedKord, 15 Oct 2014No, all you remember is YOU would still be using flip phones if not for the iPhone. I and many... moreNope. There were plenty of advanced smart phones before the iphone. In fact the original iphone was terrible.
It couldn't send mms, had no 3g, couldn't record video, had no camera flash, and no flash support.
Even flip phones back the could do most or all of that. Plus send bluetooth files, use SD cards, and remove batteries.
Flip phones were more advanced. They even could run flash content and use apps.
And smart phones were already moving forward. Apple just jumped on the bandwagon.
Symbian was the true continuing advancing system them.
All the iphone did was make things more popular to the technologically naive.

I and many others were using Palm and WinMo smartphones long before Apple decided to enter the game.
swieyue , 14 Oct 2014The biggest archilles heel of this phone is its outdated uncool faux leather design.Outdated? Samsung started it with the Note 3.
And it's better quality.
lolz, 14 Oct 2014Yeah i try out all these phones.when it comes to camera video yes note 4 better in details but... moreExtremely false!
The iphone is not way more accurate. Just somewhat, because the Note 4 is not does not take super saturated photos.
And false again. The Note 4 definitely wins in low light photography and video recording.
Yes the iphone does better in slow motion video. That's it.
And lol. Wow. Pentile? Now we know you are just Internet bashing.
The Note 4's QHD is far superior. And it can reach 750nits. So try again about brightness. And it's more color accurate and less reflective in sunlight.
Plus also less power consuming than the iphone 6 pluses and even the m8's smaller 1080p ips displays.
And no. The iphones battery is no where near the life of the 1020. The note 4 however surpasses the 1020 in battery usage. Just not standby time.
And duh? Disabling GPS and such things will make any battery last longer.
And the fact is that the Note 4 has quite better battery.
And they even just got an update to make the battery last longer.
And the Note 4 is quite a bit better than Note 3.
Note4Guy, 14 Oct 2014Let's not be little kids and accept the fact that the Note 4 is better than the iPhone 6+. OH ... moreall I remember is that we still be using flip phones if not for the 1st iphone, and Samsung will still be making flip phones.
OH OH OH, in your face!

Peace
Oh I nearly forgot to mention today, ONLY 3 DAYS TO GO UNTIL UK NOTE 4 LAUNCH! I won't be able to sleep Thursday night !
In early days I used to say that Samsung mobiles are just dumpshits which will lag a lot. ...but I got impressed by the touch wiz user interface (actually by using my friends grand)and made up my mind to by a galaxy device and yeah!!! I bought note 3 .....osm man ....its juz awesome. ...no other words.....Samsung will only give great mobiles at and above 20k ..."Note:For heavy usage"...Every 10 k phone will lag at heavy use ...its not fair to say that all Samsung devices will lag....its worth of money....ALPHA is a killer at its range and will rock the market
why someone here isn't considering gap issue as its also mentioned in the review..................they proudly advertised their metal frame.....but samsung seems to be incompetent enough to manage it in real!!! seriously disapointed....a flagship with such blunder....nt a fan of apple.....seeking some serious thoughts!!!

Try it by yourself if you don't believe you'll find that lumia 930 beats IPhone 6 plus, Note 4, Xperia Z3, Z2 and IPhone 6, S5 and other flagship in still caputre in all lighting condition and 1080P low light video but other beats lumia 930 in 1080P normal lighting condition.
PS. I'm not windows phone fan by the way and I used every single Note line since Note 1. But after IPhone 6 plus and Lumia 930 I changed my mind.

I do prefer S5 Super Amoled over Note 4 Super Amoled due to the better brightness, mean might be note 4 super Amoled more accurate than S5 super Amoled but not as bright as S5 Amoled.

So an iPhone is between 100-400 USD (iPhone 6 Plus 128 GB).I paid for my iPhone 6, 64 GB, 250 Euro with a 2 years contract at 2GB of data per month. I could have got the Note 4 for free for the same contract, but I think the difference will be made back when I'll sell the phone in two years. In two years all new phones will be on 64 bits. My iPhone 6 will be still usable while the Note 4 will be a relic of the past with 32 bits.
