Anonymous, 13 Oct 2014i agree with u...we should have an option black themes on touchwizI agree on this as well.
Sure making it white looks "better/more professional" whatever.
Though it does show how efficient the new Amoled panels are.
But they should have an option for black.

Iphone 6 plus betas note 4 due to the 64-bit architecture, better software optimization plus the IOS take the whole advantages of hardware unlike Android, so imagine if Iphone comes with quad core and 2 GB of Ram?!
Gibby, 13 Oct 2014Can't wait to try this thing. It does seem like a better deal for your $ than the iPhone 6+. Sorry ppl i played with note 4 3 times iphone 6 plus way better in terms of screen,performance,camera (colors looks weird on note 4 camera).
Jovan, 13 Oct 2014Six times more of processing capacity? :D Do you think to calculate the processing power is a ... moreHold your horses, will you? Take it as you want, there is a huge difference in the apparent available processing power between the Note 4 and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the fact that the iPhone still outperforms the Note 4 with a large margin in some benchmarks, while being very, very close in the others, is nothing short of a technical wonder.Just imagine the iPhone 6 Plus with the hardware features of the Note 4.
Battery life? Note 4 is rated at 87 hours here while the iPhone 6 Plus at 79, hours. While this is 10% less, is not that big of the difference, you'll practically have to charge them both at the same time, in normal use.
The freedom you mention is also on the iPhone. I never once connected to the iTunes(or to a PC for that matter) with it, I will when I will do a backup. I did the same with my SGS 3. Customisation? If you talk about widgets, OK, I give you that, is nice to have them on the home screen, but with regard to functionality it doesn't matter if you have them on the home screen or on the notification screen like in the iPhone. You'll still have to scroll to get to the one you want.
Multi windows? I had them on my SGS 3, I disabled them as I don't need them. Stylus? Again, I never felt the need for one, and those who have, they have the option to buy one for the iPhones too.
About the screen. You can't say the iPhone screen lacks anything. In fact, I noticed that while with my SGS 3 I had problems seeing the screen properly in strong daylight, with the iPhone it never happened.Productivity? I use my phone ONLY for taking pictures and videos, browsing the internet when something else is not available, playing games, and calling. For pictures I have the Manual app that gives me full control of the camera(ISO, exposure, white balance, while the histogram is shown in real time) for the videos I have a very powerful editing tool(iMovie), browsing the internet is the fastest on any phone, as shown by benchmarks and comparison videos, and about the games, they were always better on the iOS. Even about calling, now I can take a call on my iPad, which I use when I'm at home, without the need to pick up the phone. Also there is a big difference in quality between Facetime and Skype(I use both), with Facetime being miles ahead. About file transfers. Well excuse me, but have you heard about wi-fi, cloud storage, all kind of messengers and e-mail? Who needs a USB connection these days, except for backups? My photo camera(Sony Nex 5R) has the wifi transfer function, so no need for cables there. Extra sdCard slot? A class 10 card has a minimum transfer speed of 10 MB/s, while the Flash on the iPhone 90MB/s. How much would cost a 48GB(the difference to 64 from 16) sdCard with the same speed? On the iPhone the difference is only 100 bucks. When you have over one thousand of photos in your gallery, as I had on my old SGS 3(over 1700), scrolling them is very slow if they are stored on a sdCard even class 10. Oh, and BTW, you can use the iPhone 6 Plus with one hand if needed(double tap on the home button) while for the Note 4 you really need two hands.

Displaymate rated the Note 4 screen as the best mobile display EVER. Meeting or exceeding every category but screen brightness . As far as color accuracy it's the most accurate display period thanks to Basic Mode. The color temp is a ridiculously accurate 6550k to srgb standard of 6500k. In comparison the iPhone 6 plus color accuracy is 7700k. You can hate on everything else on the Note but facts are facts and the Note 4 display is the absolute best in the industry. http://m.gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/samsung-galaxy-note-4-has-best-smartphone-display-says-displaymate-592637

As for the ifans there is no reasoning with them, otherwise they wouldn't be so naive to buy iPhones lmao.

You don't seem to know that ram capacity only plays its part when the multitasking commence. And that's what the Note 4 knows best that iPhones know so little, multitasking! And you also don't seem to have read the displaymate reviews on both Note 4 and iPhone 6/6 plus displays explaining why the Note 4 display is the best there ever is. The Note 4 has the highest score on Absolute Color Accuracy ever on its standard mode and as always, infinite contrast ratio and perfect black! While the iPhone's has slightly bluish white. Lol Super Amoled has come a long way since the S3, you know. :) The use of the QHD resolution on the Note is another thing you don't know, it seems. VR experience, my friend :)
And the battery life? It seems like there's a lot that you don't know :) The Note 4 is not GS3! Just check out the battery life test again, won't you. And that's without even switching to the Ultra Power Saving mode and the arrival of Android L which one main feature is improving battery life
Features? :) How about the enhanced multiwindow multitasking? Great for big screen, don't you think? Saves a lot of time, too, more productive. The S pen? With its mouse-like features? It's starting to sound like a PC, right? The Note 4 is more than just a smartphone, you know. And the VR capability? Of course it's best on a Super Amoled screen with high resolution, don't you know that, too? :)
Freedom from dictatorships? That's funny. But I mean freedom from iTunes, freedom to send files via Bluetooth to other phones, freedom to customize the look and the functionality of the UI, freedom to expand the storage via micro sd card and even flashdisk trough USB OTG, and freedom to swap the battery and change the back casing. :) But I get it, the iPhone has Touch ID, right? Okay. :)
The QHD resolution will kill the adreno 420 gpu performance.
QHD is "NO" "NO" "NO" way to be mobile resolution standard at this time.
SO why the hell android phone OEM want push for QHD 1440p resolution???
Gaming performance will crap like sh.....t
Can't wait to try this thing.
It does seem like a better deal for your $ than the iPhone 6+.
How much do the onscreen benchmarks matter in day to day experience?Do they affect the gameplay of graphic intensive games?

And even with double the pixels, it would still have six times the processing capacity of an iPhone, that's still huge! Most beautiful screen? If you like oversaturated colours, maybe. I had the Amoled screen on my SGS 3, it was hard to look at it in the default settings. The iPhone screen is THE BEST in colour reproduction, and is one of the best LCD in contrast levels, sun legibility, DPI, and so on. You really don't need a 2K screen on a phone like IPhone 6 Plus, you wont notice the difference in resolution. Life battery on my iPhone 6? I've never been out of juice in the middle of the day with it. I only charge it in the evenings, it only loses like 50% of the battery charge in a normal day of use for me. If I forget to charge it one night, it doesn't lose more than 1% (I've charged it last night and now is still at 100%) of charge overnight, compared with my old SGS 3 that was losing 15-20% of the charge in the same time. If in the morning the battery of my iPhone is below 50%, I just charge it for 10-15 minutes while I'm getting ready to work, and in this time it charges close to 100%.
Features? I'm not missing anything from my SGS 3(I still have widgets, swype keyboard, call recording, contacts shortcuts on the hone screen, wi-fi hotspot, and so on).In fact I have the most important feature for me only on the iPhone: TouchID. Freedom? LoL! If the Note 4 gives people more freedom, we sould send them for free to people living in dictatorships. :).
I dont understand why Samsung is adding so much white color in new touchwiz
It is not good for battery
