dextrlab, 11 Oct 2014Where is the real world experience? Those app startup and loading times longer than iPhones? W... moreAll im saying is I've tried both in hand, the Note was the same, if not alittle quicker than the 6+. Ran the same apps, cleared all previous apps, they are both fast (dont get me wrong, the 6+ is def quick) but any lag being a huge con is overstated. Not talking benchmarks...just talking what I saw and experienced firsthand, literally in hand.
dextrlab, 11 Oct 2014Anyone can write a blog, but thats fine rather than a play store full of malware.straight from Apple:
why list dont manipulate as a guideline? Because they know it happens.
Here's another article from digitaltrends:
Yes anyone can write a blog, but when multiple outlets report on it and the Company has to come out and explicitly address it, its a concern.
malware is very limited in Play and their detection is quick. You would have to be very limited in your understanding of apps to DL them.

So everyone's happy.
I imported the Exynos version and I am amazed at this phone. The battery life is excellent (hopefully even better when L arrives!). Even at very low brightness setting you can see everything clearly on the beautiful display. Just discovered Autodesks sketchbook app (you get the full version as a free gift!) and sketching is unbelievably close to the real thing. Spen is a joy to work with. Worth every penny!

Its very true if only it beats iPhones in benchmark then ... moreNo it wasn't sarcastic I literally meant it because you made the assumption that I cared about benchmark scores. I never said that, you said that. You care about benchmark scores and you need validation for your insecurity of having invested in a phone only for another to come out and basically claim phone of the year.
now you can't brag to your little friends that you have the best phone now. I'm sorry you're phone dictates your self esteem. On theat NOTE, I've pre ordered this and guess what buddy.. I'll have a better phone than you. LOL
See how sad it is?
Have an opinion but NEVER FOR GET IT'S PLACE In your HEAD, and If I want your opinion ill ask for it. Otherwise why not try to contribute something useful the the comment section. Rather than the babbling opinion of some insecure guy/gal.

No thanks, I buy a phone to USE IT, not to temper with it losing the guarantee! If a company that makes the phone is not able to provide the best software for it, then you're better of looking somewhere else.
dextrlab, 11 Oct 2014LOL! What a hater's sarcastic reply. Its very true if only it beats iPhones in benchmark then ... moreironic that Ifans were the ones saying that benchmarks dont mean anything but now when the benchmarks are in their favor, they're waving the banner...so im going to say the same thing Ifans said last year...only real world experience matters...how you use it and what you're doing with it are the only things you should measure.
I agree with Thom, comparing the 6+ to the Note 4 is like a PC to a console...the Note 4 can do so much more than the 6+...If your in a pinch and need to get things done, the Note 4 will get you there faster. You can get thing done in the 6+ but the Note 4 does it quicker and lets you enjoy your experience while doing it (not having to switch between screens to get numbers...etc...)
"Performance is buttery smooth aside from a half a second wait when you tap the recent apps button (but probably just nitpicking here - the same task on the Nexus 5 running stock Android takes exactly the same rime)."
In other words, LAG!

Firstly it's all about preference as I've said and you've said... hence can you see the pointlessness in arguing over what's better because it's entirely subjective and each person hold different qualities at different levels.
Secondly you say about updates and such but guess what even if samsung were really slow with updates (flagships are priority) I could just as easily flash a custom rom on it, I don't have to settle with what's in my hand, I can make almost like an entirely new phone. Can you do that with an idevice?
Lastly when I buy a phone I don't particularly care about resale value in fact it's not something I'd even consider, this shows the sort of psychology that people who pick iPhones with this in mind are literally doing so to folow a trend.
I've been in to following myself.
w8ng 4 sammy beauty, 11 Oct 2014Lolz ymay be prince but not king bro......iPhone 6 plus got inferior display,big bezels.......... moreInferior display? Yeah, Note has just higher screen resolution but look at the compromise in graphic performance, it doesnt even come close to iPhone 6 in terms of perceived FPS, hence less fluid in gaming and graphic intensive apps. Well anyway, android doesnt have design aesthetics in apps and they have less apps in tow so their users cant realize it. Bending feature, thats fine rather than having ugly samsung, ohh, look at your name, waiting for samsung beauty, then goodluck waiting for a lifetime.
