Bullmarket, 03 Aug 2018Samsung you better upgrade it to Android 8.1 or at least 7 instead. Thats why I changed my Note 4Haha android 8.1, my s8 still runs android 8.0 and you want a 4 year old phone to get a firmware that not even the newest flagship has (s9)
It's the best Note I've ever seen on its time, and until now every Note fan still hailed this device as the "Perfect Smartphone".
I agree though, even if I don't have any Note device. It's a killer phone and can still compete with modern midrange phones.
If only Samsung goes back to the removable battery modernized version, I'll buy it with no hesitation.
I am still having a hard time parting ways with my Note 4 due to its stellar performance. It's still keeping up with the current midrange phones in the market in my opinion.
It still has more usable space for pen writing than the curved Notes of recent plus the screen is still beautiful after years of use. The camera still has enough grunt for stills and the video is 4k, which sadly you can only share via youtube or vimeo. I am planning to upgrade the batteries so I can go for another year before I settle to either a Note 8 or 9 depending on reviews. The cost of upgrading vs actual phone usage is still too much as to 3 years ago.

All updates claim they supposedly bring “better battery management” and “improved performance and stability” to the device. This is not news.
"It will slow down phone to make users get rid of Note 4.
Because note 4 was best note no one buys never ones."
If Samsung did that, all it will do is devalue the Note 4 in the second hand market. It will make it harder for those users to raise cash to upgrade to say the Note 8.
The Note 4 came out at 350 Euros. The Note 8 is at 750 Euros.
How many of those who could afford to buy a Note 4, will also be able to afford a Note 8?

I still prefer interchangeable batteries over the current solution, and I'm sure they can come up with a weather-sealed phone with such battery, but i guess this way is easier.
Note4 is a fine smartphone even by today standards,the screen is sharper and better than the 1080p ones you find today, I swapped the battery recently, formatted 6 months ago and after 4± years is still going strong and fluid and while 6.0 is not the latest OS , I still don't have any issues with today apps and games. It's not my daily driver but I still keep it as backup/android auto in the car.

Sadly, I don't know anyone who still has this.
Would anyone with the phone be so kind as to tell us whether performance dropped after the update?

My Xperia Z2 already get this feature almost 3 years earlier. Samsung update it you should be happy but it is too late.
One of my favourite phone too, enjoyed while I used it, though did start to lag three months onwards. Battery problem? No big deal anyway, because world was sane enough back then with detachable batteries. Buy a new, pop it in, simple. Damn greed since then have taken over with companies, way too much greed.
Give an update to my a7 2017
Battery life is 60% down after oreo update
