Anonymous, 28 Nov 2015I advice you to better keep your kitkat as i do myself. I alteady had lolipop 5.0 and 5.1 and... moreThe update really drains battery quickly and also heats up much more regularly as compared to Kitkat. lets hope the Marshmallow update brings back the performance of the battery and device overall as kitkat. i am regretting updating it to 5.1.1

Harvy, 10 Nov 2015note edge or note 4? am getting both at the same price and am getting confused what to buy.. a... morei suggest note edge .really awesome smartphone using since last 7 months.😉
The new 70mb update on SM-N915G is a saviour,awesome battery and smooth as butter..thanks Samsung, now give 5.1.1 soon
manish90, 13 Nov 2015SO far 4g is provided by Airtel only and I have been usin it ..
so no issues so far getting... more40 Mbps more likely...
I was on 90Mbps (about 11MBPS) when 4G first launched in my area. After about three days and everyone started using it typical speeds were more like 60Mbps.
Bits and Bytes. Eight bits to the byte.
so.. 8Kbps is the same as 1KBps
16Mbps would be 2MBps
Your numbers are solid,.. and if you are getting 40MEGABYTES PER SECOND, even more so.. just make sure your carrier doesn't charge through the roof if you go over your limit, because, having done the math, it would be easy for me to clock up a million dollar phone bill in a month (if I tried).
And that is with speeds vastly less than 40MB per second
Ecorner, 03 Nov 2015Hi,

NOTE EDGE USER, 12 Nov 2015I am on unlock version of the phone, didn't receive the 5.1.1 update so far, when checking it ... moreThey have released 5.1 update for Austrailia and US..
In case you are using an indian as mine n915g..than you cam dowload sm-n915g firmware from sammobiles and flash it usin ODIN.

I am on unlock version of the phone, didn't receive the 5.1.1 update so far, when checking it I am getting the message that the latest update for the phone is installed
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2015Anyone knows why the note 4 camera produce much better quality video than note edge?Hard to say, but coming from a photography shop background (selling digital cameras, and being a photo industry enthusiast for many years).. same Sony IMX240 (I think - its been a year since i researched the part..) sensor in both devices,.. same software driving the chipset.. auto features on phones choose the ISO setting based on available light.
Too many variables on full auto devices (I am a full manual photographer myself) that higher ISOs generally make shots grainier.
Most cameras can take great shots in good light.
Low light situations can quickly discern the good from the bad.
The camera on this phone can only be beaten by the S6(s) due to a slightly faster lens allowing more light capture; means in low light situations the shutter can remain open for less or a lower ISO setting (less grain) can be used...
The samples you are comparing, my guess, are just poor examples for comparing.
All recent top tier Sammys are exemplary at photography. (for phones)
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2015This phone SUCKS it frequently freezes up and goes to home screen on its own and restarts more... moreHave your telco give you a new SIM card.
I had a galaxy S that had a poor sim cage, and I had to put paper or sticky tape on the back of the sim card to 'fatten' it up and make proper contact with the phone.
Instead of hurting the sim cage, just get a new sim (should be a free service).
Better than a warranty repair on the phone, and it fixed identical issues for me!
Hope this helps you.
Chris, 26 Oct 2015Which is better Note 4 or Note edge and please, why's that? That's more important for me. I se... moreNot dismissing others real world experiences, I will contribute my own...
I've had this phone for just shy of a year, daily driver, intense use.
No resets (except for a week or two when I first had it due to a dodgy sim card, when replaced reboot issue only ONCE since (after a very nasty drop)).
No overheating. Though there was a period I installed a tonne of apps and the CPU wouldn't hit low sleep states, which meant I wasn't getting days of battery life. (I used CPUZ to see what the cores were doing and that allowed me to understand why my battery life was varied.)
Being a bit of a technologist, I understand that low reception zones can make phones fight hard (ramp up their power to the aerial) to keep reception. I've never had any issues with battery life or heating issues(and the phone has had lots of usage in high temperatures).
I travel through zero reception areas, I leave my wifi on, connect to hidden wifi networks at home (so wifi on means my phone will fight hard/battery drain trying to connect to a hidden network) and leave my screen brightness high auto. sunlight legibility is brilliant by the way!
Solid phone. I use a samsung fit band with it (love the combined functionality, eg never have to unlock my phone if wearing my 'watch', which has days of battery life as well)
This is one of the better value (from a productivity point of view) phones on the planet.
The S-pen has made this phone the best ever purchase for me simply for the art my daughter creates in 'Artrage'.
The audio support (and samsungs useful hearing test/phone recalibrate software) make this a great audio player (and SD card support means I run FLACs and still have a huge library), but combined with the ultimate screen (and colour profiles) this phone as a multimedia device is near unbeatable.
Add in things like Baldurs Gate being unplayable on non tablets, but usable due to the accuracy of a Stylus.. There really is something here, special/unique, for many users.
Now that the price premiums for this unit are dropping, this is a near bargain and future proof with regards what new thing can a phone do that this one cannot.
I got it to save me buying a tablet and a phone.
I can handle the phablet design as it allows for seriously low SAR rate (I don't mind my daughter using this phone without frying her head).
Not sure of any weaknesses, other than size and weight.
Battery is phenominal, even if other phones can beat it in endurance tests, it is irrelevant as this phone WILL get even the heaviest user through a workday. I have had four day runs on many occasions, and typically recharge around the two-three day mark.
Seldom have I worried about battery life, being able to crank out the tunes on the internal speaker whilst at BBQs never worrying I'll run out of juice/not be able to use the PHONE features...
