vino41, 11 Oct 2015If you're a power user go for Note 4, If you want a more optimized device go for Note 5.what is a power user? do u mean using it a lot on stuff like video that uses up the battery fast?

I mean, why would I want to keep a movie I already watch. I am pretty sure 99% of the time no one will rewatch a movie they already watch. It just doesn't feel the same if you watch it twice, right. Plus, more space for my phone.

For me, specs do not really matter for as long as you are happy and satisfied with what you get and what you can do on your smartphones.
TheNeighbor, 11 Oct 2015Hehehe. Sure you do...Yes i do,but you need to learn a lot more than what i do. Hehehe.LOL
Bunyip22, 11 Oct 20154K video uses about 300-350MB per minute. If you have a 32GB GN5 and the OS, cache and apps us... moreVery true 4k can reach that kind of huge sizes however not eveything in 4k is that huge in size . With High Efficiency Video Coding format (HEVC) u can also get a entire 4k movie of abt 3.5 hours in under 16 to 17gb size only. Anyways my downloads normally includes 1080 blu ray files that are abt 4 to 10 gb's i use those files as a use and throw method so i never ran out of memory on my 64gb note5 it still has more than 35gb of space free .
Btw there are very few true 4k movies online .
& yes i know in ur country where only 32gb note5 is available it is very weak but elsewhere ,where 64gb is available its not that weak.
PARAG B, 11 Oct 2015You again started to b a HYPO.CRITE u mean if one only has 32gb model he sud never watch a 4k ... more4K video uses about 300-350MB per minute. If you have a 32GB GN5 and the OS, cache and apps use 12GB that only leaves room for about 60 minutes (20GB) of space for a 4K video. Most people with 32GB devices would be lucky if they had room for 10-15 minutes of 4K video.
Once again the weakness of the GN5 is the storage space.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2015Which one is a better upgrade from Galaxy S4 ? Note 4 or note 5 ?If you're a power user go for Note 4, If you want a more optimized device go for Note 5.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 20154k is for future proofing. Why not? Prices drop rapidly everytime new technology emerged. Besi... moreExactly.but with note5 i do not even need any extra adapters or extra softwares or apps to downscale the 4k content to my 1080p tv .all happens wirelessly over Miracast, isn't that great? :) & yes i also agree abt your fureproofing and the bandwidth and 4k tvs prices getting cheap part too.
Along with Remoteplay ,my PS4's dualshock controller also connects to my note5 wirelessly over bluetooth as game and ui input device.so life is just getting awesome and awesome with my note5.i still think there are lots of other things to b explored.
TheNeighbor, 11 Oct 2015Exactly. And here you are telling us that you should have just gotten the 32GB and that you do... moreYou again started to b a HYPO.CRITE u mean if one only has 32gb model he sud never watch a 4k content on his smartphone even though it supports it Lol..i am saying it again and again to you that i view 4k content on my note5 yet the same can b viewed on my 1080p HDTV wirelessly through Miracast so what in the world is wrong with that.
And after i am done watching those huge files i mostly delete them and recover my storage space back. Is this really that hard for you to understand LOL.u really need to learn a lot dude.
TheNeighbor, 11 Oct 2015Exactly. And here you are telling us that you should have just gotten the 32GB and that you do... more4k is for future proofing. Why not? Prices drop rapidly everytime new technology emerged. Besides, you can downscale 4k video to be view on FHD tv.
PARAG B, 11 Oct 2015I did not really think that u are so du.mb LOL..Anyways FYI. I know that i dont have a 4k tv (... moreExactly. And here you are telling us that you should have just gotten the 32GB and that you do not need such a big space... and yet here you are telling us you download 8GB worth of 4K, and even record 4K.
And I might add, since you only have a 1080p tv, doesn't it make more sense that you download 1080p video instead of 4K content which is 300% more space usage? Pretty pretentious.
TheNeighbor, 11 Oct 2015Of yeah, download 4k to watch on a 1080p display... Most people do that. Really. Just makes... moreI did not really think that u are so du.mb LOL..Anyways FYI. I know that i dont have a 4k tv (may b in future) but i have note5 that supports the 4k video playback on the smartphone itself moreover it also records in 4k through its camera...and whatever 4k content i have on my note5 can b mirrored on my 1080p HDTV wirelessly.though i have a 1080p tv but i can still watch the same 4k content from my note5 on my tv with a awesome quality. DUDE u seriously need to get some life ,and a huge doze of commen sense.LOL

Just makes sense you load it with the Note.5, and then steam it to the 1080p TV.
PARAG B, 10 Oct 2015If its 720p the picture quality is not going to b that great compaired to 1080p or a 4k resolution.Of course but iam talking about displays 720p on note 5 and another phone
samsung lover, 10 Oct 2015Watch these 720p on s4 especially on s4 and compare i bet u that on s4 is super great than not... moreOf course s4 is still a great phone but on my note5 even the 720p is better than most other displays i saw b4 the note5. May b ur unit has some display issues have it checked at a authorised service center .Dude even you tube has 4k content now a days its nothing new.again google can b your best friend to find such contents.
