What's the point of having 4GB of ram if the phone isn't optimized to handle multitasking correctly? Samsung is the worst at it. The apps you "supposedly" have running in the background aren't really running. Truly shameful that no one sees it.
Really sad to hear Samsung is going to use Exynos... It means poor battery life - exactly as it is with every other model made with Exynos chip inside. Snapdragon may be not the perfect, but in terms of battery usage (especially in phone idle mode) it's hands down better than Exynos. My Note 4 on Exynos uses in average 3% of battery charge overnight with everything turned off (except GSM module). Note 4 with Snapdragon after full charge still shown 100% in the morning. But it's in just 7 hours. In 2 days this leak will eat about 15-20% of battery power...
there are two things i hate on this phone if this rumored is to be true
i hate that ugly CAMERA HUMP on the back on the phone
i hate that Physical button very cheap like a MOLE .
AnonD-414631, 27 Jul 2015what are you talking about? you mean swap out the files manually every day? what are you high,... morewhat are you talking about are you high?? what are you smoking?
what I mean is that if ever that he will bought this phone note that has no SD card slot,
if he wants to transfer the files from his old phone to the new note 5 he can just use a PC or otg..
for example my old file from my old phone I will transfer it to the new one, so I will use PC to do the transfer since im gonna dispose the old phone.. if you didn't get it with all those explanation I think you have som problem.
problems with note :1.overheat easily 2.lags and hanging 3.poor battery life (my opinion)
eheh, 27 Jul 2015you can just use you PC or OTG to transfer the files..what are you talking about? you mean swap out the files manually every day? what are you high, why would I do that? cuz if I had no microsd card, I'd be forced to keep a certain amount on board that's why, but bro I have music, videos. games (these alone are gigs each by themselves) and when I record in 4k it eats up a lot, 24GB is a joke, I mean think about it, in the size of a thumbnail stands double the storage capability of the stock one for storing said data, the OS can run off the much faster onboard flash storage, im supposed to be a slave to the otg cable and a pc and pass and remove files every day, what are you nuts

Anonymous, 27 Jul 2015Because free ram is wasted ram.true story!
YESSS, 7422!! please please please include the microsd card and you have a buyer! Ive had every note since the 2 and the 4 is a beast, if the 5 comes without microsd what am I supposed to do with all this data on my 64gb stick?? (which is by the way twice as much data as was originaly on the phone, there will never be a good argument towards anti microsd) no microsd no sale, plus the screen is the same as my note 4
its prototype not the main thing for nw its jst a preview so they might change all those software
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2015what is the use of 4gb ram when only 743 is available Because free ram is wasted ram.
