The multitasking key seems to have a lag because its waiting to see if you are going to long press it to bring up the options menu!! that's not the phone lagging!! Jeesshh!!! I hate when reviewers call that lagging!
Reg the Note 4 which I had for 3 weeks now. I noticed that for the first week the battery drains so damn fast. You can literally see it drain right before your eyes.
But now, at it's 3rd week, the battery last more than 18 hrs with continuous data. Has this happened to anyone?
I expected it to have lesser battery power as time goes by but mine seems to be getting longer...
Gsmarena is it so hard to do a comparison between exynos and snapdragon ver.. 64 bit version of lollipop neds mor ram to work properly so this means that exynos have no real advantage over snapdragon version? For watching YouTube videos, heavy multitasking, installing a lot of applications and they should be able to work properly to and that will not to be draining the battery power to quickly. ...is what I want to have. What version should I buy?
I measured the Note 3 and Note 4 volume with Sound Level Meter. I used 1KHz test signal, and music. You can see the two phone volume for Sound Level Meter display at the same time.

Thinking of getting an iphone 6, a note 4 or a... moreI cannot comment on the passport as I have little knowledge of it.
As for what the iPhone and the note. There is now even a comparison here.
The note 4 is the overall best phone out right now.
And the claims of iOS being perfect and smooth is exaggerations. IOS has a considerably larger amount of crashes.. And it still has some lag/hiccups too.
The note 4's performance is going to be similar with less crashes and more usability.
And as far as how easy a device is to use iOS is not really any more simple to use than android.. On some levels its more complicated.
Android has more features and functions to use. But when people say it makes it more complicated they are forgetting a major factor.... Those features are optional. You can use the most advanced or simple functions to your liking.
For basic use of facebook, texting, calling, and such they are both very simple.
But what changes that is in most cases iOS has a settings menu that has been known to be less direct and more jumbled while android has a more direct logic set up in settings menu. Supposedly iOS 8 addressed this but I refuse to update and have heard these claims before.
But if you are taking the learning curve to iOS you can take itto learn a few more steps in android/touchwiz.
The whole easy thing is exaggerated. If you are going to use the device you will be able to start learning even the extra functions through usage and practice.. Some things toy might need to look up or ask about.... But when was that ever so complicated????
The Note 4 wins in stability, build quality, display, camera, speaker, features, battery life, battery charging, memory, price, stylus, customizing, multi tasking, productivity, and most ways in general.
Plus the exynos version actually runs a little faster in cpu and should get updated to 64bit when it gets the android l build which will improve it further.. And it has 3gb ram to feed it on 64bit unlike iPhone choking on 1gb.
And the gpu in exynos is only a few frames behind the snapdragon.
Plus its Samsung's biggest product. It will receive the most support from them. Probably more so than most other Android devices. As well as some serious after market hack support too.
Note 4 exinos vs. snapdragon review or any kind of comparing pleas....
I don't know what you're talking about, the snapdragon version have a battery that lasts much longer than note3, as the test showed, and the exynoss version (which I own) lasts evenonger.
With fast charging it charges waaaaay faster than note3 requiring about an hour for full charge...
Have you even read the review or tried the device before saying that??
Sammy hope you make a smaller version of the note before another company beats you to it. Would love if my S5 had a stylus just for the odd occasion when it would be handy.
Which model of those two should be better for watching fhd movie's, internet browsing, heavy multitasking, photography and video shooting. It shouldn't drayn battery quickly is important too. TouchWiz must run without slowness. Exynos or Snapdragon?

Want to upgrade from an old blackberry device!
Thinking of getting an iphone 6, a note 4 or a passport???
Don't know the one to go for?? Am confused!
I want the iphone 6,cos of the face time stuff,the smooth OS,Their quality apps,games etc but what turns me off is that its too fragile,A single drop and everything is over!!! And again,Getting songs on it is a big task!!!
I love the note 4,The big screen,multi tasking,S pen but it just looks too technical for me! (Tho still my 1st choice!)
Will love the passport(u knw am presently on an old bb device) but the phone application issues,APPS from Amazon not connecting with the BB Hub,Not all android apppps on it and those on it are not enough quality!Too big and awkward!!
These 3phones has @least 1 feature I love to have but I can't have the 3@a time, Have read so many reviews and watched so many videos but am still confused!!!
Pls kindly give me an advice on firstname.lastname@example.org
jib, 31 Oct 2014Can anyone tell me that note-4 has finger print unlocking facility? Oh yes it does have finger print unlock.Just like the one on Galaxy S5!
This phone note 4 is a very nice phone with all its features the only problem it has is with its battery life it takes for ever to charge it and doest last long at all compare to the previous model note 3 I have no idea why Samsung made such a mistake with this model
jib, 31 Oct 2014Can anyone tell me that note-4 has finger print unlocking facility? Yes. If you have read the review, you would have known.
