Signal Strength plays a key role in determining the battery usage. If a connection is being tried to be established on either WiFi or 3G and if the signal strength is low, the transmitter in the smartphone will have to amplify the signal to high levels which increases battery usage. Similarly if the signal keeps dropping and the smartphone will have to scan regularly for either of the signals, the battery power would be used up significantly. In addition to searching for a signal and transmitting, a smartphone will also have to page the base station or cell tower frequently updating that it is alive and transmit other information all of which may contribute to the battery draining quickly.
SAM, 02 Apr 2016Friends - I am thinking to buy note 4. Please advise on this. still i confuse which i should ... moreOne word for the note 4 *perfect* the features are worth the money you spend to get it, the s pen is not just for show, it's useful even for a casual smartphone user, it can be useful. I have used my note 4 just for a month and it's been the perfect phablet. It's fast, beautiful screen and such a beauty to watch videos or play games with it. The battery is good too, I charge it once a day. The camera is also very good, I haven't found one major problem in the phone, the fingerprint complaints are not the fault of the note 4 itself, I had some difficulties with the note 4 finger print earlier, until I set it up correctly, now I never have any problems unlocking my phone with my fingers.if I wanted to buy another phone now, it would still be the note 4 because I just don't see any other powerful smartphone that offers options such as removable battery and memory card..you don't have to carry your charger around everyday, you can simply have an extra battery and swap it if the first one gets low, which won't happen unless you are a really heavy user who constantly play games and watch videos all day. That's the only time you will need an extra battery. I hope I helped you decide. Note 4 is perfectly functional and beautiful too on the outside.

I would rather get the note 4 not the edge. Battery life is better and support is better for note 4 than the edge version.
Friends - I am thinking to buy note 4. Please advise on this. still i confuse which i should select. note 4 or note edge.

Thats the reason why i never tried doing it because i have read some forums with regards to it that it disables the functionality of the fingerprint scanner.
I would strongly recommend that you root ur note 4 guys.. This fone is truely amazing and Samsung is not doin justice to it at all.. Its not getting the respect it deserves..

I'm about to buy Note 4 over Note Edge due to consideration of long lasting usage, Note Edge screen protection and cases will be hard to find here in Cambodia. Do I make a wrong choice? Any assist very much appreciated

Presently I am having note 4 indian version could u plz tell when will marshmallow update will come !
Samsung have released a cool app called Good Lock which transforms the notification area completely, I think this might be the reason they did not give the theme support to Note 4 in Marshmallow, I checked it on Youtube and a person installed this app without rooting on a galaxy Note 4 and it looks FANTASTIC.
