I've had this phone for a week now so I can confidently say that I'm very, very happy with it. 1) Looks-wise, all my co-workers have commented on how gorgeous my new phone looked even without knowing it was a note 4. 2) Hardware-wise, the battery just goes on and on, screen is superb as always, and I got an exynos model and probably the most graphic-intensive game I play is asphalt; did not experience frame lag. 3) software-wise, I actually haven't slapped on Nova yet and it's been a week which means TouchWiz isn't driving me crazy... yet. And 4) the s-pen is on another level, more precise than my 2012 10.1 note; my only complaint is that it's thinner so a bit harder to hold.
Bunyip22, 08 Nov 2014Too funny... i forgot that XNAh actually owns a low/mid range Sony C3... wishes he could affor... moreYup, The die-hard Sony fan that lives around the Samsung flagship pages
I have already proven that XNAh has been faking his claims of having even the Z2. He was boasting about he'd be getting a Z2 "soon" last April 18:
And here's the bomb about that lie - over a month later, May 25, he claimed that he got a Z2 early April, from Singapore where its first release, weeks before everywhere else! Look:
He had to fly over to Singapore from Vietnam, subscribe to one of the only three carriers offering a Z2 with a plan, and have it unlocked to work in Vietnam. He must have ditched the carrier, if he was able to show residency papers in Singapore.
Just a big loophole with his story.
Meantime, we all know how he was consistently bragging about getting also a T2 Ultra and a C3. WHy would anyone carry a Z2, T2 Ultra and a C3 all the time? Hahaha. Until recently, he was still bragging about the C3 in the Note 3 page. It's likely that the true thing he really uses. Not a Z1, nor Z2, and especially never a Z3.
Notice how he can only chant specs, and never specific real user experience. Totally jealous with the Note.
[deleted post]Don't make mistakes Motorola did the update before some of the Nexus series by getting KitKat before the Nexus and now ready for the Lollipop update.
Samsung got a long way to go with the update before the update come to the Note 4. While for the Moto X, they are stock Android and will get it before the Nexus. This is the soak test meaning the OTA will follow soon.
With the Galaxy Note 4, Touchwiz UI, Pen functionalities, Camera software and more of Samsung applications will make the phone delay with some bugs fix to follow. Meaning 2 to 3 month remind for Samsung. When you choose Samsung, then that the wait.
Now this is very funny. Samsung need to do something about this issue about the update time line.
Motorola beat for the second time to release the latest update before the Nexus series even does. First with KitKat and know with Lollipop. The Moto X and the Moto G are getting Android Lollipop before the Nexus 5?
Some people will get the Moto X 2014 with Lollipop before Google Nexus 6 arrived. WOW!
The Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 will get it in 2015 just because of the Touchwiz UI and all those Samsung's applications. This is very bad.
TheNeighbor, 08 Nov 2014I see your keeper let you use the internet again with your Sony C3.Too funny... i forgot that XNAh actually owns a low/mid range Sony C3... wishes he could afford a Z3 but knows deep down the Note 4 is even better..
Bunyip22, 08 Nov 20141) Thanks scoop, the Note 4 screen is 0.5" bigger than the Z3 which may have something to... moreI may have believed every thing you said but do think that a phone will be faster because it has soc 805 over others with 801. It is generally believed that Touchwiz lags.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2014There are 16 kinds of note4!
But all 16 kinds have different qualities and confused chipsets ... more1) Thanks scoop, the Note 4 screen is 0.5" bigger than the Z3 which may have something to do with the size and weight difference?
2) 805 Note 4 slower than the Z3 801? Don't make me laugh.
3) Mono Speakers? The Z3 volume was "disappointingly low", the Note 4 on the other hand has "one of the most powerful loudspeakers we've encountered recently" plus it has better quality audio according to GSMarenas tests..
4) Plastic body? Actually its a metal body and frame with a plastic back cover which has a lot of benefits over metal and glass.
There are 16 kinds of note4!
But all 16 kinds have different qualities and confused chipsets (Exynos & snapdragon)
So note4 is not a flagship phone:)
Note4 is the same like other Samsung phones with strange names:D
Moreover, note4 is 26gram heavier than Z3, and it is also thicker,and slower than Z3 in real life using
Mono speakers and plastic body and poor design show that Samsung care little to customers
And it is also show that Samsung emphasize profits and marketing but not quality
darkgamer, 07 Nov 2014But it focuses faster than s5 which has phase detection. So it's not wrong to tell that. ht... moreI said ago that tech industry is going to 4k smartphone display,did u listen darkgamer?-Samsung is also working on 4k 6 inch display,and u said that no one is moving to 4k,now what u say?
bee, 07 Nov 2014Hi guys! I just got this note4 yesterday and I'm really disappointed with the camera! My pi... moreI agree totally I tried to take a close up of my note 3 but it had trouble focusing and all the pics had a slight blur to it, I couldnt get a sharp pic at all I took about 8 then gave up im not sure if theres a setting for close up but I couldnt see it normally you get macro or something like that. ..
Youtube will only play up to 720p videos what a waste of time, the phone can easily handle 1444p google need to pull their heads out of their backsides and at least give 1080p, and samsung need to activate all the hidden features they kept back from the note 3 like airview with fingers, voice commands, reader mode, page buddy ect they are all in the rom just not activated....
ash, 07 Nov 2014I've bought note 4 and unfortunately it doesn't have smart scroll or smart pause or air comman... moreAll these features are in the note 4 rom but are hidden and when turned on still arent working im hoping some clever dev can get them working or theres no point of them being there, theres a youtube video called note 4 hidden features that shows this, shame samsung thought so little of giving their customers the choice of using them or not....
Prashant, 07 Nov 2014So that's fine. But i read that Note 4's OIS is not work truly(or properly),what you say?Add ing('working') or else many attackers are ready here.

Prashant, 07 Nov 2014Note 4's camera has not phase detection autofocus.But it focuses faster than s5 which has phase detection. So it's not wrong to tell that.
GSMArena: "Images came out tack sharp across the frame and focusing was spot on. We noticed that the Galaxy Note 4 was very fast to lock on and even surpassed the Samsung Galaxy S5 on every occasion."
