The fact is, high "premium" phone is beaten by a middle model that has standard micro SD card slot, FM radio. Why pay extremely high that does less? I question all these lessened features and impracticalities so modern kids here think having a more glass and a short-term charging solutions that actually kills that sealed battery faster.
And these tech reviewers don't know any better than to actually promote such nonsense of fast/wireless charging without telling about its short-term consequences - heat being the number one enemy of the battery or that you have to carry all that gear just to keep your phone alive for the entire day.
So much complacency, so much under thinking.
Heyii everyone !!
I wanted to choose between S6 n Note 4.
Decided on Note 4 as i read some users facing heating issues on S6.
Now m reading Note 4 users goin through the same heating issue.
M using S2 since around last 3 years, no heating issue faced Alhumdulillah.
Can someone please give me a reasonable review and opinion.
In sha Allah planning to buy 1 soon ...
And which is the best version of Note 4 ? Is it N910C ? Or which other ?
Many people argue that its time to leave SD and adopt cloud drives,on which i dont hav faith.i cant save my private pics and vids on some company's drive.resent leaks of celebs like jen law,kate upton and salena gomz proves my point.they clearly said that they keep them on 2 different servers for securing them in case of 1 is lost.one is still there if u delete 1.may be they will go through them to learn peoples psychology for their marketing.apple or google non is faithfull.they hav always breached our privacy,its proved..
Sorry guys, this is 2015 and storage options have come a long way since the floppy disk. Unless you live in less-developed nations where fast networks are lacking, having a micro sd card is the way of 2007. It seems like everyone is losing their mind over Samsung's recent decision to phase out micro sd cards in their devices. But the reality is that cloud storage options are more mobile, versatile and secure than sd cards. I can take a picture and upload it to onedrive, (which I got 100 gb for free with the S6) and instantly access it on my other phone and computer/tablet etc. And it's not like you'll ever lose your cloud like an sd card or have to pop the back off the phone to access the additional memory. I can somewhat understand the non-removable battery decision but they provide other more convenient options over swapping batteries (fast charge).
Stop hating for Samsung trying to bring us into the future!
NEXT IS NOW
Well Well Well.
Samsung is back with another phablet ( which is short of a basic requirements like expandable memory and removable battery)
When is samsung going to learn? 128 GB version is a necessity in a phablet and not a luxury?
64 GB is like peanuts and dropbox is useless without stable internet connection in India.
And when is Samsung going to come out with a water resistant phablet? Sony is far ahead in this regards.
3000 mah? Seriously? Note 2 has 3100 mah and I still replace it everyday with the other battery to last a day with heavy usage.
4000 mah would have been decent figure for a phablet since you do not buy a phablet just to call and text.
That said, my Note 2 is still better than any other note series in terms of performance. No Lag even after 2 years of constant use with a 64 GB Memory card. It is definitely a No nonsense phablet.
Looks like I am sticking with my Note 2 until Samsung learns from its mistakes.
Samsung is turning out to be more like Apple where the users have to pay more just for memory and nothing else
But I do appreciate the design. Looks GORGEOUS and is worth the premium price.
The day is not far before Samsung reaches where Nokia is, if you know what I mean.
john, 22 Aug 2015 samsung devices are always pricer than others .Surely it will be a flop flagship like s6. Dude I think you areally using some bloody cheap mobiles
Dude removable battery is totally worst i just hate this type of phone. i believe in new technology but this type of technology brings only headache.

Also, you clearly don't understand the RAM management of the GN4... RAM is used for quick re-opening of apps. The more apps you open the more RAM you will use. When the RAM is running low the Note 4 uses the Low Memory Killer (LMK) to free memory by closing apps from the least recently used (LRU) list.
This means that when the RAM is getting full the Note 4 is simply making the most of the 3GB RAM to keep as many apps open as possible for quick opening. It won't actually slow your phone by having a nearly full RAM as the Note 4 will automatically close apps as required.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2015note 5 sucks!!! no sd card no water resistant no ir blaster no removable battery lagy ui ...By far this the best note. note 4 and note 3 both are laggy, ram mamngment crap on both doesn't has better screen than note 5.
DeathlyAssassin, 22 Aug 2015To put it simply Note 5 sucks big time and can be regarded as the worst phablet made by samsun... moreActually it's the best note made by Samsung unlike laggy and crapy note 3 and 4.
PS. Used all note line since note 1
Galaxy A8 Dual SIM version can take 128GB micro SD card, has 16/5 MP cameras, and a damn metal back. Just uploaded the only demo unit from the only store that has one.
So why can't micro SD cards be on a Note.5? They really want us carry storage like USB OTG dongles and wireless HDDs? Rely on cloud and have us pay for those services? Become renters than owners of devices we buy?
Impracticality over aesthetics that easily breaks?
To put it simply Note 5 sucks big time and can be regarded as the worst phablet made by samsung since the development of Note 3. It's better for me to wait for Google Ara's modular phone, LG G4 Pro, Xiaomi Mi5 plus or Xperia Z5 ultra than to buy fancy garbage.
Nothing special about this phone... ill stick to my note 4 until note 6 arrive...
