Im wondering if a Note with 4GB of ram, SD820, 1080P & 4,000mah battery with the slight efficiency of the 820 and less resourceful screen would equate to more or possibly even less battery life than a Note with a more power efficient SD823, a slightly bigger battery, more ram, but a more resourceful screen.
I believe that I would choose the premium version, since the screen AND cpu can be modified and scaled down if you feel the need which would further increase battery life, since the screen would be scaled to 1080P, which is proven to save a (small) bit of battery, as well as limiting the more efficient cpu to perhaps half clock speeds and undervolt them by 10%.

Xz8441, 07 May 2016What's so great about 1080p? If I have QHD, i can always use an app like Samsung's very own... moreYou do realize that you're one of those people who mocked 1080p when 720p was the norms. And now that there's QHD, you're now mocking FHD. Are you alright Lil boy?
CarvTheJarv, 07 May 2016Even my Laptop just has 4 GB of Ram and that is running Full Windows 8.1 , I can do many tasks... moreI BET you don't get the luxury of opening 40+ chrome tabs, 10+ Edge tabs, a few Opera Developer tabs for oversea video streamings and having them run "smoothly" on your "adequate" 4GB Ram. And this IS just browser tabs alone.
Your smartphone should be keeping WAY MORE than that in cache with the numerous apps people use everyday to allow for smooth multitasking. In all use case scenarios, more (RAM) is always better. Those who keep saying xxGB is enough, remember when HDD came in sizes of MBs and 1/2/4 GBs and everyone said that's TOO much? Tell me, what's the normal size of a HDD now?
Alien, 06 May 2016That's why I will buy the X Performance from Sony.
SD820 on a 5" FHD display! Best combo ever... moreWhat's so great about 1080p?
If I have QHD, i can always use an app like Samsung's very own Game Tuner to change to 1080p WHENEVER I want. AND "showoff" my QHD (like you said) WHENEVER I want.
But if you are stuck with FHD, no app in the world can help you to "showoff" QHD WHENEVER I want, coz YOU CAN'T! So, who's the losing one here? Who's paying more for less?
LOL I can't understand blind Sony fanboys. Or those who clamor and hold onto older techs like their life depend on them. Furthermore, Samsung's QHD AMOLEDs are more energy efficient than FHD/QHD LCDs... so who's the one losing out again?
MorbosHN, 07 May 2016Pretty sure smartphones do more than just call and send SMS Even my Laptop just has 4 GB of Ram and that is running Full Windows 8.1 , I can do many tasks smoothly , So I don't think a smartphone should have more than 4
ethereal, 06 May 20161080 what?Tech-illiterate people going around buying and wasting hardware.
Anonymous, 07 May 2016720p on 5.8"? you like seeing pixels do you?Not to mention on Amoled displays, unless theyr using an RGB Matrix, the pixel density could probably affect heavily the reading experience, by making texts and other things blurry, unless zoomed. But damn, 720p on a phone in 2016, unless theres some sort of wizardry to make it appear sharp and vibrant, is the as saying your an ISheep xd!
Yousef Al Salmi, 06 May 2016IMO 1080p is the good option 720p is the perfect option720p on 5.8"? you like seeing pixels do you?
GPMAC, 07 May 2016It should have SD card and IR blaster.SD will be there IR probably wont.
Garato, 06 May 2016Why to have 6 GB ram? Such a waste its better if samsung can improve with their ram management... more1) 4K screens wont make any visible difference unless you use VR. Aside from that it will only add load to the GPU.
2) You need to understand how cameras work. Past a certain point, increasing the MP will only add noise because of the small sensor size. They should only increase the 12MP if the sensor is bigger than the one on the S7.

8 gb of RAM to make a simple call and send sms. This is the revolution ! WTF
People are crazy to follow this bullshit of technology. Welcome to the "Matrix" dear slaves ! You get served what you deserve !
Samarth N8 808 user, 06 May 2016GSMArena, you're feeding us a lot of salt recently. :D But I like it salty!Lol...
Herodroid, 06 May 2016lol, are you using iphone or what? 6 gb is the future, it helps multitasking. Samsung is alrea... moreI am already using a Galaxy S7 and i love samsung but still the Ram management is not 100% complete. I can afford that
Garato, 06 May 2016Why to have 6 GB ram? Such a waste its better if samsung can improve with their ram management... morewith 6GB or without 6GB does not change the price of the device and it will not add 21 mp pixel camera as more pixel does not mean better photos ... S7's 12 mp would easily knock off moto x pure 21 mp cam.
But I do hope with same pixel size as s7 they put 16 mp sensor in Note.
4K display is overkill on a small device ... eats up ur battery ..it would be good only if phone comes with 6000 mah battery :P
