i use the galaxy note 3 and i live in ghana,i am gutted that when talking of your continental and country models you guys didnt even mention africa.its despicable to think nobody in africa can afford it
Hi everyone ,
I just received my note 4 today and overall is a nice device , but there is a few things that's quite disappointing. forget the whole 64 bit thing and lets focus on the primary feature of the phone ! Comparing it to my iphone 6
1) the camera photo quality is not as good as expect it , specially if you compared to iphone 6 !specially indoor shots
2) sometime laggish , not as responsive. Consider the hardware it got on board , pretty sure they will fix it with an update though.
Apart from above mentioned everything else is sweet ! Still need a few days constant use to see if it live up to the expectation, but so far been loving it ! Still will choose the note 4 over iphone any day !
bruce waynee, 06 Nov 2014may be its due to Quad HD screen .
thanks to samsung , my Galaxy Alpha Exynos has 720p scree... moreGames don't run at QHD. Games run at usually 720p or 1080p after that they're upscaled to fit the screen.
It can't be happening. I've seen gamebench scores of note 4 getting 60 fps in asphalt 8. And gamebench is a real world test in which you play your game and it measures framerates.
Also users at xda are reporting excellent gaming performance. Maybe a software bug or some buggy app consuming CPU power.
Or the most possible reason. The guy is lying.

He is right and that is why his message resonates so loud.
Samsung should use that as good feedback and incorporate the same in future phones.

thanks to samsung , my Galaxy Alpha Exynos has 720p screen , and it never lagged , screen is sharp enough , i cannot find any individual pixels on text at normal distance .
it runs even all hd games with very smooth frames unlike note4
notenotenotenote, 05 Nov 2014quick question, is it true that the snapdragon version has a lot better battery life than the ... moreOn exynos n910c the battery life is great but on exynos n910u it's not.
This is maybe due to firmware and it will be fixed with update soon.
So don't worry, the battery life is great on all models or will be
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2014You claim you don't own this phone yet you defend it vigorously . You being paid by Samsung... moreI'm not defending this phone. I'm just preventing stupid comments like you to come.
Okay. Droid turbo has 3900 mAh battery. But that's about it. It has only AMOLED display, not super AMOLED. It doesn't have micro SD. Even that has usb 2.0, the Camera has no OIS, even that has 32 bit chip, no removable battery. No fingerprint scanner, no multitasking, no s pen, screen is smaller and front cam is worse.
See, no phone is prefect and will ever be. There will always be compromises.
Regarding the USB 3.0 cable, it looked really ugly and didn't have much advantage . For example, usb 2.0 is enough as it can transfer data at 45 MB/s which us almost equal to the NAND speed if the phone. So there is little advantage with USB 3.-plus they upgraded it with fast charging and note 4 us the fastest charging device on planet. It charges up in 94 minutes while even the droid turbo with it's turbo charging takes 125 minutes.
Make your choice, tell me which phone is better.
THERE IS NEVER PERFECT PHONE. But better ones exist.
I know soon every samsung fan gonna bash on me...but m gonna tell u the truth....last day i checked the phone from my friend
...it was exynos version...and with even 8 cores touchwiz wasnt smooth....it lags alot.....

quick question, is it true that the snapdragon version has a lot better battery life than the exynos one? hoping for people who already had their hands on this phone or if you know

All Guys, be it known loud and clear, snapdragon 810 not out would be pure 64 bit architecture, Exynos at present is doubtful now no active, will be activated Lollipop 5. What a lame excuse. Just see nexus 6 has 805 purely 32bits till the end.
Just hold on Note 4, till L5 arrives, fr Exynos 910C then when games HDrun flawless maybe. I rrecommend forget N4 wait fr S6 and N5.
Heavens is not going to fall, get more benefit after two Qtr.

If this is their top of line phone then they ought to give top of line specks without any excuses .
The note 4 is the most expensive samsung phone . ..why was it downgraded from a usb 3 to a usb 2.
then all the other issues like water and dust proff , stereo sound , only 20 mah increase in battery (new moto has 3900 mAh).
Samsung is selling its customers short on this phone .
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2014You think that a 15 % difference between two models of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are accept... moreI never said that there is 15% difference between the 2 variant. I said that the performance of the SAME chipset increases 15% due to 64 bit support due to much better memory address and cryptographic capabilities. Also there are done small factor. But clearly you don't understand all this so what's the point of explaining.
An SoC is much more than just CPU. It has a GPU, a codec block, audio block, radio, RAM, NAND etc.
1. A phone cannot have s pen and water proofing at same time as the slot for s pen can't be waterproof due to the sensors inside.
2. 5.9 inch is a useless thing to ask for. Besides, note 4 has capacitive keys and not on screen so that makes usable area equal to a phone with around 6 inch screen such as nexus 6 which has on screen keys.
3. No 64 bit for India. Now that's a story. You probably know that s5 was a flop in India. Do you know why. Some id#ots from India spammed flipkart and other Indian review site comment sections that exynos is Samsung's own chip and it's a second grade chip to snapdragon. Samsung shows double standards to India by launching superior 4G snapdragon I'm US but exynos 3G in India.
You can also see it gets about 1.5 rating on flipkart etc by people.
So to avoid this, Samsung released snapdragon in India. Samsung has always been releasing exynos versions in India and this has changed due to the reason i told you.
I do not own this phone.
Also one more point. The exynos note 4 does not support 64 bit. It has a 64 bit capable chip but it runs on 32 bit as for now.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2014Troll for who we know
You seem to think a 15 % gap is a small thing you got something else ... moreYou don't know what you're talking about.
So according to you, no one should buy ANY phone released this year. And no one should buy a snapdragon 801 phone at all as it's even more obsolete.
I never said 15% difference is less or negligible. But 15% advantage doesn't make it obsolete.
You don't know anything about processors. I shouldn't even waste my time talking to you.
SUDHAKAR, 05 Nov 2014Come to note 3 area and say this. You will get a name called 'troller'. the same way you call other peoples troll when they start complaining about G3 in LG forum.
why are water- and dust-proofing such big deals for some people? the g3, nexus 6, one m8, and the iphone 6/6+ don't have it and people aren't complaining about that one.
the note 4 isn't meant for water and dust, duh. people need to learn to take better care for their things.
also, while the 32-bit debacle over snapdragon 805 has merits, the exynos 5433 solves that problem.
and as for stereo speakers, while also with merits, can easily be solved by headsets and earphones.
people just really love to bash samsung for inane reasons that aren't really problems if you look at them more closely.
