Samsung should consider IP67 certified to suite the present need, camera 16 MP and above,otherwise, I can say is a failure.
Am I the only one that thinks that unless this is water resistant it is not worth upgrading from the 3? I have owned all three of these but this upgrade seems to offer less than previous ones did. I also fail to see the point of QHD on a screen that is so small. I find it hard to believe there will be any discernable difference to the current 1080p. 4K would actually make more sense to me. Of course you won't see the difference on the phone screen but at least you could connect that using HDMI to your 4K TV and get full resolution. Feeding a 4K TV with QHD content seems rather stupid to me.
Niceguy Nomore, 27 Jun 2014Here is my two cents: I'll will present the bare specs; not going for validation. A bit of coo... moreSuch device is a camel hump like device. The big OEMs don't cater for the hardcore they are going after the wider market who don't have such high standards. Aesthetics come first for OEMs.
It would be good though to have at least one OEM put out a product that is truly top notch in all these areas caring less for how it looks in the end.
I am sick of Samsung cheap plastic casing, make squeaky noises. I am planning to buy HTC or Sony, but if this note 4 is water resistant, then I will definitely get this one. dual LED flash and OIS is a must for me :)
Here is my two cents: I'll will present the bare specs; not going for validation. A bit of cool thinking and anyone can appreciate the reasons behind these spes.
16 MP camera, IOS, with a larger sensor and Xenon Flash
Bring Back the FM radio, and include a FM transmitter.
6" display with 576 ppi pixel density
64 GB onboard storage, 4 GB RAM.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
heart rate and Fingerprint sensor included
4800 mAH battery.
Double SIM and Double micro SD card (upto 128 GB) support
IP68 and IK05 protections
os- Lollipop and wireless charging out of the box
A better typepad.
All glass construction.
12 million pixels might be the sweetspot where you have the best possible quality (NOISE wise!) on a 1/2,3" size sensor, and still nice pixel room for cropping your images .
On a smartphone standard 1/3" size sensor (wich is a smaller sensor) i state that 8 million pixels would be the sweetspot.
Any sheep shouting for more pixels is asking for more noise and so for more fake image processed software pics. Sheep like themselves to be fooled around with. Blind for reality and vision of nature, people and good photographs , they rather only read numbers and dollars.
The lens on a 2014 smartphone (yea z2, s5) cannot resolve more then about 7 million pixels, wild guess, probably even less.
Disappointed? You better be.
12 MP - what a joke ... Sami are you looking at loosing your customers..
we want top of line specks for top of cost phones
Samsung vs. iPhone 6.This better: http://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_6_55inch_model_could_feature_ois_and_128gb_storage-news-8873.php
AnonD-240959, 27 Jun 2014Samsung Galaxy Note 4.. Better Camera and Better Plastic :PInstead of making ignorant comments you should open your mind a little.
The back of the note 3 is great. It looks good, it wears well and doesn't scratch, it feels good, it barely shows finger prints, isn't cold and isn't slippery like other materials.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2014I hope this is true. More MP doesn't equal better images at this level. Samsung sheep bashing more MP = better..
Now they are saying what iPhone sheep say.. More MP != better.
Buy iphone 6
note 4 will be plastic crap without 20mp camera and new concave display lol B-)
ppo, 26 Jun 2014another week... another samsung phone. They are a joke!Any other samsung phone they release, then your statement would be right. But its the note 4 we are talking about here. It would hardly be a joke.
