I can buy 10 million iPhones now but I never satisfied with IOS.. so terrible and useless compared to Android. . I always back up and restore entire Android (ROM) system. What an operatinng system. .I want to throw my iPhone 5 ... really bored after couple of months use. .
Most of the people that have bought the new iPhone are coming from the iPhone 4 and 4s and the iPhone 5, and since most if not all have invested in Apples locked in ecosystem, it makes no sense in buying another brand, that is what Apple wants, which is a brilliant business strategy. And now that Apple has gotten with the times and finally given it's followers "worshipers" a screen bigger than 4", the masses have gathered for it's annual pilgrimage to Apple land.
Jovan, 23 Sep 2014Really?? Way too many advantages over the Note 4 to list here?? And you only mention the data ... more@cuadra @MrGray @Jovan @rj23
I apologize I may have overstated the advantages point. Thanks for correcting! But the "two advantages" you (Jovan) mentioned in your original post still aren't the only things Apple buyers go for. That's what i was trying to say. Sorry if that came off the wrong way.
One of you mentioned sync for android and cloud options. Here's another concern one of you might be able to correct me on: iCloud or iTunes will back up an iDevice's image and paste it as is on a newer (or any other type of) iDevice. The image comes as-is it was with your last idevice down to your icon arrangement and app data. I used sidesync and google's backup but not everything came back as I last left it. I'm not nit picky about small settings but the backup (or recovery you could say) left a lot of things behind including app data from my note 3.
Another reason why I'm yapping about synchronization is because i Have a lot of media content on my PC and Mac and iTunes has done a better job managing that on iPhone compared to sidesync for Samsung Note so I started swapping SD's since uploading large amounts of media to cloud takes a while... I don't always have the best internet speed at home. And that's also why I don't care for iCloud so much.
Anyway, again... Thanks for correcting me.
OverTheHedge, 23 Sep 2014There are way too many advantages of iPhone to list here. Maybe you're not familiar with them ... moreLove it how one of the selling features for iphone buyers is the "seamless connectivity" they claim. But in reality they are so blinded by the crap they were fed they don't actually know what this means. Having to use itunes is so far from seamless its not even funny. Plug in your samsung and you can use kies if that floats ya boat but most people just go to their mtp device and copy paste whatever they want. SOo seamless and easy it makes using itunes a laughing stock. It really boggles my mind how apple fans who's system is way less seamless than android constantly claim it as a selling point?
lasso, 23 Sep 2014Actually fans of mr cupertino are so much obsessed,blind and too loyal that they simply just d... moreOh c'mon dude, what makes u think that apple users are blind and ignoring on apples issue? Why should they bother of that when infact nothing to bother with cause apple useres don't have any issues at all on their hansdsets. Unlike androids and samsung that hey have lots to worry about. And apple users don't pay for the name of the company, that has nothing to do with the phone, the user experience and the satisfaction of using the iphone thta make customers made the customer's buy the product. We the iPhone users are satisfied for what we paid for. iPhone is worth the money we spend. We even did not experience ur laggy waggy that u have on ur android,. and dude try to use the iPhone in apple store 4 just a 5-10 minutes perhaps and I assure u, u won't regret it and perhaps u will have a second thought leaving samsung or android and swithch over to iPhone..

Well it's about time! I couldn't understand why Samsung would wait so long to release their new Note so long after Apple had to chance to push their new iphone.
After Samsung had their event, they should have put the Note 4 on the market. Releasing so late, gave Apple a huge led on their sales.
I don't know what they are doing over at Samsung, but someone really dropped the ball in Marketing. Hopefully I could have this new Note in the earlier part of October.
Head of marketing for Samsung needs to be fired or no bonus received. How in the world do you promote a product ahead of your competition and deliver last knowing youre in intense competition? How do you under estimate your opponent by that type of a margin? Its a result of being sleep at the wheel, arrogant in assumption and not paying close attention to the market. Samsung started off ahead in the race and now trailing by 10mil..The rumored date after the unveiling for delivery was Sept.15th, four days before the iphone. I honestly think had that been the case, the stats would have looked differently. You should never let your competition get such an advantage especially when it could have been avoided. The people sitting on the fence so to speak or thinking about switching, I feel a portion of that audience has been loss. Those people have no loyality. I want to trade in my Note 3 for the 4 but my provider (Verizon) does not have the bronze gold that I want. And cant give me any info on when I can expect it. Its small things like this that make a huge difference. The Note 4 is a better product with better specs but just in case you haven't noticed, the Iphone has become a lifestyle. Most of the audience dont know anything about specs. They are playing follow the bouncing ball. Samsung, we need an earlier release date for the U.S.than Oct.17. We also need all colors that you have promoted to be available at launch along with OEM cases and screen protectors. Without these things, you give more advantage to your competition.
Just an observer and a true Galaxy Note fan.
The launch doesn't seem to be sped up anywhere else in the world, lucky Koreans.
I'm happy waiting, the Note 4 is going to be another fantastic phone. I just don't get the obsession with Apple. I find their devices extremely boring but hey something for everyone right?
When is it coming out in Canada? I want news on this, why is it taking so long.
dewsoetz, 23 Sep 2014That's true but u still can't compare a lexus to an S600l class, 760li series or the audi A8 w12 You can if the Lexus is a Lexus LFA. And that is what the Note 4 to the smartphone world, a Lexus LFA Nürburgring package to be exact, an under appreciated beast of a creation.

OverTheHedge, 23 Sep 2014There are way too many advantages of iPhone to list here. Maybe you're not familiar with them ... moreReally?? Way too many advantages over the Note 4 to list here?? And you only mention the data sync? That's really funny. And btw, there's a software feature called Kies for Samsung devices, and it's not only to sync all of the data from phone to PC, but you can even move all of your media from iTunes to a Galaxy phone. How bout that? :) I bet there aren't too many advantages over the Note 4 now, don't you think? Even if you find some other advantages the iPhone has over the Note, they certainly will only be minor software advantages, unlike all of the hardware advantages that I mentioned. Those hardware advantages aren't replaceable and they ain't cheap, you know. You do know that, don't you? And I even forgot to mention the dedicated heart monitor and all of the extra sensors such as the UV sensor and the barometer. And o yeah, and here's a software advantage of the Note 4 that made all the different on the big screen and on productivity, multiwindow multitasking, there's also the ability to make the stylus work like a mouse. So now, go figure how many real advantages the iPhone truly have over the Note 4.
OverTheHedge, 23 Sep 2014There are way too many advantages of iPhone to list here. Maybe you're not familiar with them ... moreFirst of all, Apple should really do the sync'in thing greatly on other Apple devices because they're all made by one company. It would be dumb of them if they couldn't do it. Secondly, only few people own Apple computers and iPhones all at the same time. In Android Sync'in isn't a problem. You might have not used an Android device. Same thing goes for Windows Phones, generally the three can do the sync'in that you are yelling about! Can your iPhone serve as a remote for your aircon and tv? Android has much more to offer than your iPhone especially if only connectivity is your concern.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2014Note is the lexus brand of Toyota That's true but u still can't compare a lexus to an S600l class, 760li series or the audi A8 w12
OverTheHedge, 23 Sep 2014There are way too many advantages of iPhone to list here. Maybe you're not familiar with them ... moreOoops. Better check your facts right. Lol. SD card is the ONLY friend to manage files on Android? You clearly haven't used Android yet, or if you have, well.. that says a lot about you.
