Have received mine yesterday and waiting for my PDAIR case to arrive before taking it on the road.
So far, it is a beast of a phone.
-The screen is nice, clear and crisp, the best so far.
Now my usually prediction for Galaxy Note 4
- 5.9" FHD while keeping the dimension the same, ( may not be possible since their is little side bezel to work with, however, maybe edge to edge and move the Power button and volume control to the top. I don't like the back as it interfere with protection cases)
->4000mah battery removable of course
-Fingerprint and/or Eye scanner
-Hardware Optical Image stabilizer 20MP camera
-SD card slot
-Stereo front speakers
-Add digital TV tuner
-Put back the FM Radio
-Keep the same weight 140g - 180g
-minimum 64gb internal memory
Have I miss anything out except for the Kitchen sink? :)
With every iteration of the phablet, my Sony Vaio Z laptop is used less and less. There will come a time where my phablet will be the first choice for business and leisure.
And a shout out for any manufacturers that can create a leather case for the Note 3 that has a build in thin tacile keyboard with belt clip will get my vote and money :). To make typing easier, have it fold out to vertical side for close to full side. Maybe I should patent this :)
AnonD-193314, 05 Oct 2013Does anybody know how to get the list of other sound alive option I hate the new one Yes, where is that list? I can't find it either, but in the review there a picture!?

AnonD-124236, 04 Oct 2013OIS = Optical Image Stabilizer...OIS is also an exclamation "Oh I See!"
compare N9000 n N9005... i wanna check the performance difference between adreno 330 and mali 628... n also that octa core of 5420 is any better than 5410 in battery performance...
64 bit is cutting edge, this is just an iterative update of the S3 based Note 2 to a Note based on the S4...
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2013One question to the guy who made that review - WHY YOU DO NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT THE REGIO... moreRegion locking isn't a problem to all people. You whiners happen to shout the loudest is all.
I can't find the sound alive equaliser mentioned in the review and shown with a picture, listing the available presets?
I use the square, can you direct me to those presets GSM cause I've looked and can't locate them, might explain the crap sound I hear?
deepairdiver, 04 Oct 2013why so much bad press about regional lock ?
it can be easily unlocked by the use of that area... moreIf you think so, you can try. But you will be surprised a lot when you try to use another region SIM!
This unlock with putting first the SIM card from the same region DO NOT WORK - 100% confirmed!
Kudos to Gsmarena for doing their job with love and honesty. Love you guys.
I wanted to buy this but REGION LOCK
NO CHANCE mr sami, , I'll stick to my note 2 for now
For those inquiring about which is faster, Snapdragon or Exynos, check XDA. Snapdragon is significantly faster for Anomaly 2 and Epic Citadel game engine benchmarks which are much more realistic than the other useless synthetic ones.
The faux leather back is okay, but fake stitching!? That is tacky. I don't think I've seen that since the 1980s. Hopefully, there are more tasteful back covers. Otherwise, I'm totally in love with it.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2013One question to the guy who made that review - WHY YOU DO NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT THE REGIO... moreIt's not even a real region lock...
You just have to use AS FIRST SIM CARD, a sim card from the region where you bought the phone, and it'll be unlocked...
