Despite the much higher resolution, the battery life is actually improved according to their presentation on the Unpacked event, a 7.5% improvement from the previous Note to be exactly. And it can charge from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes. The Ultra Power Saving mode from the S5 is also there now.
I just seen that Samsung R&D could not innovate to make the product even more attractive, design is boring, features only slight improvement, and not much features could be offer on this new product.
Gucci, 04 Sep 2014Note 4 have same battery compare to note 3 and more pixel, fast processor so battery will drai... moreG3 has 3000mAh battery and battery doesn't drain out faster. The case is the same with the Note 4. Battery WILL NOT DRAIN FASTER.
I don't see too many people buying either phone until they see what the new iPhones look like. But one things for sure Apple has to improve the battery life or at least offer a phone you can upgrade the battery. I don't care if it's not the thinnest phone in the world just give us a phone with a decent battery.
UCGILL, 04 Sep 2014My first smartphone was sony xperia neo V. very nice mid range handset. i used it for 2 years.... moreYou could have use another theme rather than touchwiz coz you know it lags a lot. I have been using note 3 for almost a year and never had problems after using the RIGHT software. Try using nova launcher and then uninstall any unecessary apps that runs and lurks in the background. Avoid using battery savers as they hog memory space. Remember to clear cache often to refresh the apps. Use greenify to stop background apps hogging memory. Trust me, mine still runs smooth without using touchwiz
TBC- To be confirmed FM Radio better be confirmed
Even cheap Chinese phones are improving on specifications
Awesone but...i was disappointed with the speakers :( i expected it to be the same as note3's
Better screen and processor, They could have upped the RAM to future proof it. I have the note 3 and won't bother with this upgrade. Battery will drain faster and a 2k screen is going to be rather under utlised apart from HD movies.
Once the Note 3 gets the same firmware. Both phones with covers on side by side would be hard to tell the difference, especially with the screens off.
I'll wait for the note 5, if of course this doesn't ruin the Note series of samsung :/
Aesitg, 04 Sep 2014Does it support usb otg? Or is that what usb host is?OTG= sub host
danny, 05 Sep 2014Only 3gb ram? Not certified water & shock resistant? Total Failure! I'm expecting it to be... morewhy would you need more than 3gb ram? 64 bit soc is a expensive gimmick
its water repellent to some degree. (it has a metal frame aka it doesn't like water at all)
phablet screen goes from 5.2 to 6 anything more is a tablet lol.
I really expected Samsung to pull the big guns considering the new iphone is coming out the same time. They really disappointed me with the specs.
please Can You Conform me weather it's include the Water Proof IP67 Certificated & Fingerprint sensor
Gucci, 04 Sep 2014Note 4 have same battery compare to note 3 and more pixel, fast processor so battery will drai... moreFail. They just explain that the battery life increased by 7.5% yet the phone has a better screen and processing power.
The Adreno 420 consumes less power :P
Only 3gb ram? Not certified water & shock resistant? Total Failure! I'm expecting it to be 64 bit, 4 GB ram and at least 6 to 8 inches display.
Why did the Note4 go back to usb-2.0 instead of the 3.0 this might be a deal breaker for me. Is the unit water and Dust proof?
