AnonD-314503, 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!

Cool down. Your ace didnt make it this iteration. Better wait for next one.

If only it beats iPhone, I'll kill myself if android fanboys didnt consider it very big deal. LOL, wait for your next flagship since it didnt make it for the time being.
X, 11 Oct 2014Don't try to change the subject. It was about benchmark results that didn't come out as fandro... moreI'm not trying to change any subject I'm just stating the obvious.
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.
AnonD-182297, 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.

But regarding number of cores thats not a simple matter of more is better. It all depends on the core architecture and the krait core of the 805 and the enhanced cyclone in the A8 is completely different. So two cores can without a doubt be better then 4 cores, as seen in the benchmark.
X, 11 Oct 2014Don't try to change the subject. It was about benchmark results that didn't come out as fandro... moreExcept not. Again...system wide restriction and a decent gpu doesn't mean this unrealistic win you like to claim.
And quit changing the subject because whatever gimmicks apple uses to make benchmarks look good on paper can't save you for the terrible real life usage and scam it it.
5 days to go till launch in the UK people, I hope mine gets delivered at 8a.m. on Friday the 17th, it will be torture waiting around for the courier to turn up otherwise! #Samsunggalaxynote4

The f... moreDon't try to change the subject. It was about benchmark results that didn't come out as fandroids hoped. Once again whatever Android throws at the iPhone performance, it gets beaten. And about productivity. Really, on a phone? Even so, I can edit videos on my iPhone 6 as easy and probably as fast as on a PC. I can record music with dedicated accessories(iRig). Editing documents? Why would you do that on a phone? Anyway, you can do that too if you want. Closed system? Well, then wait for the OEMs to update your OS, and enjoy the bugs they just can't fix before your phone is almost obsolete.
If you want a Note 4, go ahead, but be aware that is not the best performer, your OA updates will be at least 6 months late, and the apps will not be optimized for it(2K screen), and the second hand value of your Note will be close to zero in two years, while the iPhone 6 Plus well keep at least half of its value.
X, 11 Oct 2014How about those benchmark results? There were so many fandroids saying "wait until Note 4... moreYou fail to understand comparing IOS and android through benchmarks is a total gimmick.
The fact the apple build everything in house means that the software team optimise the shit out of the phone so that the software is a seamless as possible (although that hasn't always been the case), but IOS is a locked down operating system meaning you can do what you are told to do.
android is completely different catering to everyone's needs there in lies the separation between operating system and hardware, which seems to give apple the advantage on paper. Let's face it android phones are far more productive than iPhones. It's like comparing a pc to a console.
I'd rather an operating system that gives me more pc like functions than one that is dumbed down.
That's my preference but to hold these benchmarks in such high regard (especially when the N4 beat the 6+ on base mark x) isn't just pointless it's actually stupid.
Then I'll leave with a hypothetical... How well do you think the iPhone could handle the notes software? Cause I have a feeling the note could easily handle IOS

The Note 4 appears to have improved the camera performance over the Note 3, but there is still an unacceptably narrow dynamic range, which makes it at best a middling camera, suitable mostly for phone screen photo viewing.
