This is a sobering read for Samsung fans.
The next year is going to look very interesting, but 2016 will be when we feel it's effects to be sure.

ooh poor ifans still moaning the victry of the galaxy note 4 hey? then to rub salt in ur woulds The Gear VR is the reason the display on the note is so mastered. sticking to apple will deny u so much that samsung will be offering in the near future. yeah so please dont move with the beast tech trends and u'll be left asking siri(spotlight) how things work and hatting that its sammy not ur apple brand that creates them. VR is the next big bang tech expecially when its about to be integrated with the game consoles. im sold on the idea of using the note 4 as a display on the gear VR, if only i could get the full gear that goes with the note sooner.
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2014TN, You also forgot to mention that there isn't a file explorer on the iphone... not sure how ... moreYes. It has file manager in App Store .
Android is still not a stable os ,even 10 gb ram is not enough for android.
iOS is fast and stable with good quality applications.http://blog.gsmarena.com/opera-mini-9-ios-brings-video-compression-eliminate-buffering/

But even on just that one page review of yours, the Note 4 still wins in some of the tests, and the fact that the note 4 has approximately 78% of more pixels to feed every time on its display then actually the iPhone also lost here. And not that the lost the Note 4 has in some of the tests would be noticeable in day to day usage. Sorry to destroy your only hope at mocking the Note 4, but these are the facts. :) O yeah, and Gsma didn't even mention how good the VR capability on the Note 4 is.
iPhone plus in any day better than note 4 ...quality & OS makes the difference. User experience is horrible in Samsung phones. RAM, Cores etc does not make a phone better it shows poor integration of hardware with software(OS). Android is better only for stealing contents (so it has file manager). So called geeks will change ROM weekly - to satisfy their user experience - which itself shows Samsung fails to deliver proper software/ROM.
I'm not a fan of Samsung. But the Galaxy Note 4 is the best smartphone of 2014.
Followed by the Xperia Z3
Then the Iphone 6plus
Then HTC ONE M8
Xperia Z2, Galaxy S5 and LG G3
Samsung invented the Phablet category. They are number one and make the best phones and phablets in the world. iPhone 6+ is just Apple's cheap copy of Samsung innovations and with so many problems. Note 4 is the very best phablet that man has ever created.

I have layered topos of NSW (Australia) which take up close to 60GB. When i head outback i simply change from my 128GB SD card to my 64GB SD card.
When camping my 2 spare batteries will last me around a week without charging my Note 3. Powerbanks could work but are a real pain. Spare batteries are also awesome for long international flights.
My Note 4 is here next week. I canceled the international order as it was out of stock, getting genuine AU stock now :-)

All I see from this article is the note 4 getting embarrassed by a slower clock speed processor with half the cores.
Dot-WiFi, 06 Nov 2014*no memory expansion - u put 10000 movie and song did u listen and watch all ?
*no user cha... moreIt's all about having a lot of features that you would need when you do, and the I do use these features on a Galaxy Note:
*Memory expansion - other than a internal 26GB user access out of the 32GB built-in, I got a 59GB out of a 64GB micro SD card. I have entire seasons of TV series, video tutorials for programs I'm trying to master, some 400 PDF of book references for my post graduate schooling. I can watch, or read media without having to wait to download from a cloud account. What person doesn't want this ability?
*User changeable battery - Power bank? Hahaha, I leave mine at home and carry an extra battery. You like carrying a charger or power bank? The Note's extra battery even comes with a case, and is 80% thinner than a power bank. I get full charge in 80 seconds, from power down, changing the batteries, to restart. How long do you have to for your iPhone to charge again? That's right - HOURS. I don't even plug in my phone anymore since the spent battery is charged on a separate cradle charger when I get home.
*Multi-window function - I can jot notes with one, while looking at a video tutorial or website for info. I can have a camera ready taking up half the screen while the other half is not taking with the S Pen during lectures. I can have look at documents while chatting with my teammates for work. The possibilities are so much more than your example of video and gaming at the same time. You'd be so ecstatic if you're iPhone can do this.
*Infrared remote control function - I can control two different TVs, 3 AC units to places I go to, 2 projectors I would use when I need to, and all I need is to download the software for equipment I need controlling. No asking our looking for that remote controller.
*Active digitizer pen - aka S Pen. Try writing small letters for annotating documents with your 99cent stylus. You most likely don't know the concept of accuracy or precision or pressure control.
*Stereo audio - it's supposed to be the most basic thing for any high end device. We listen in stereo.
*Wired or wireless universal for sharing system to other branded devices - the key word is UNIVERSAL. I don't need extra apps like Hangout to pass or receive files. I can plug in those micro USB flash drives to to transfer files WITHOUT a laptop or the need for cloud storage. I don't have to wait for large files to download or uploaded. I make things in seconds.
Apple needs to work on PRACTICALITY of their devices. It's all bling to me, and the Note 4 is a sensible choice for those who'd appreciate features and ways of working that are way better than what Apple offers.
the battery endurance test seems cannot really reflect the true daily usage.
i have both device.
for note 4, i could have 1 day with about 4-5 hours screen on.
but gor iPhone 6 plus, i could have about 2-3 days with 7-8 hours screen on.
my major usage is internet browsing.
X, 06 Nov 2014How come from the iPhone advantages are missing:
- 64 bit architecture,
- timely OS updates,... moreYeah it 64bit...but it's under utilized.
Timely updates???? Lolololol. You mean drastically buggy unstable multiple release after the other.
Touch Id works somewhat better.
Lololol. You mean apps that offer less and crash drastically more?
Better performance???? You are the best comedian here haha. You're too much.
Dot-WiFi, 06 Nov 2014yeah..wait another couple of monthIn a couple of months exactly what they said will be just as true and only fans like you will still be grasping at "lag"
Both are over priced and over rated for what they can actually deliver. I dont care about gaming but appreciate the great cameras, so what else apart from screens are the real big advancements. Both the Android and the Apple platforms have security issues that need to addressed.
Dot-WiFi, 06 Nov 2014did u read the article or not ?
Update: 9to5Mac reports its own "insider" sources... moreLol. Stretching for anything as usual.
Try actually using one or talking to people that really do....Or again all the user issues the article talks about.
Only users with more than 500 apps? And you believe this?????? Lol. You really need to wake up.
