do people really care about outright synthetic speed?
Day to day use the S801 works fast, so does the S800, 64 bit only means more ram can be used, and with more ram comes more battery hungry apps.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2014This is a big slap in the face for people who already bought it lolWell they should be. Inpatience enough to buy a new phone. They should aware that these giant phone company produce better phone like every 3-6 months.
Deio, 09 Dec 2014Bastards, greedy bastards. My Note 4 barely had its paint dried, they want more money now? DRO... more*facepalm* fail. Samsung doesn't force their customers to buy their flagship phone everytime their new phone came out. This is applied to Sony company too. They (Samsung & Sony) just releasing new phone everyone 6 months (or quicker) so that their flagship devices is future-proof and up-to-date with better spec. So it's up to buyers whether to buy new device or wait for another flagship phone coming up.
The phone maker is not the problem. The customer is.
matador198101, 09 Dec 2014I do not know why every one bought a note 4 with 805 is bothered? There is marginal difference... moreyou know that not everyone is rich to buy a flagship phone every 1-2 years. Future-proof spec like this can attract long-term phone usage buyers.
p51d007, 09 Dec 2014WASTE of money. Ok, big whoop...64 bit...will do what? Save 0.0003 seconds off app launch ti... morethe true market for next generation flagship should have been people with 2-3 years old flagship. For them, latest technology is important, since they don't want to waste money by changing flagship every year.
Unless a fanboy
Even though, there is no supporting 64bits yet but we spend the same cash but get different quality. no one would be happy to have last year phone 32bits prior for this new year 64bits Lollipop. Even other phones will come in 64bits after this new year.
whats the problem...i think for past 15 maybe 20 years average techie will change their phone every 2 years..some even less
WASTE of money. Ok, big whoop...64 bit...will do what? Save 0.0003 seconds off app launch time? Yes, benchmarks will be faster, big deal. Coworker got a Nexus6, we set up the same apps, set the screen to the same brightness against my "cheap" Mate2. His launched apps, just a split second faster, but, mine has a bigger longer lasting battery and cost LESS THAN half of the Nexus 6. These companies are doing the Apple model. Make a new device every 3-6 months, charge one hundred bucks or more for the newer model, hype it up and watch the sheep waste their money, by trashing a device they just bought less than a year before. Hey, your money, but, I'd rather have a good value, than waste it on bells and whistles.
Impossible for samsung to do such a thing. Could be another version of the note edge but not the note 4. I could be wrong but samsung would be counted as an f.ed up company by doing such a thing. It would make more sense to make a new note edge with this cause the note edge available now lags more than a nexus s with gingerbread!!
I do not know why every one bought a note 4 with 805 is bothered? There is marginal difference bet the 805 and the 64 bit exynos beside until you get all apps supporting 64 it may take 1/2 years look at apple, after 2 years of 64 bit there is still thousands of apps not supporting 64 bits. calm down folk the note even with 805 is a beast.
This is a big slap in the face for people who already bought it lol
Srinivas Prusty, 09 Dec 2014The biggest advantage of any Samsung mobile is its biggest drawback. These mobiles are relativ... moreThe biggest advantage of Samsung and LG phones is the removable battery.
So you can buy extended batteries that have 2x and 3x the capacity of the stock battery. These mobiles provide enough space for it (the phones are too slim). You don't have to carry any power bank and adaptor. Problem solved.
Bastards, greedy bastards. My Note 4 barely had its paint dried, they want more money now? DROP DEAD Samsung! Launching a new device every three month is too much. Newer devices are DOA so soon and EOL?
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2014Never buy a phone immediately when it is released! Everyone should always wait for a few mo... moreYes very well said this is wy I am waiting for the Note 4 price drop + a newer version maybe. So Note 2 still rocks for me
