I am a die hard fan of Samsung phones, simply because they are so good and friendly. The phone has been a part of me for important meetings and social networking, and has never let me down. I will always buy a Samsung any day any time
May be Galaxy Note 6 will be 10" screen, always mobile is mobile not a tab
Some of the world reputed brands is not increasing the size, they are increasing the features & performances
It should compatible to keep in the pocket

The Note 4 fps graphics performance is the same as my GN3 which is great even on the heaviest games.
Your a troll, go elsewhere.

Nvidia shield = King of graphic in for just only $299.
Iphone 6+ = Better frame.sec score than Note4.
Surface pro2/3 tablet = King of all 3d mark score.
Mi4 = 10% slower gpu than Note4 but offer at 1/3 of Note4 price.

When I watch with a FHD 32" TV at 2 meters away, I don't see the pixels. Honestly. I can't see the pixels too of my 900p+ Alienware laptop.
I'm OK with QHD if it's like 50" and beyond, and I don't really see the practicality on a 5.7" screen.

Here are some reviews of the Note 4 screen. I can understand this will be difficult to read for a Samsung hater. :-)
BoyGeniusReport: "I won’t mince words: The quad HD display on Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 is the most gorgeous smartphone screen I have ever seen."
PCAdvisor: "While using the Note 4, we found that the screen had an incredible sense of depth, and we can imagine that it'll be difficult to go back to full-HD once you've used a smartphone or tablet with a Quad HD screen like this one."
Gizmodo "The Galaxy Note 4′s screen is the star of the show. The display is undeniably stunning,.... I often involuntarily muttered “wow” to myself while swiping through different menus and apps, so that’s a good sign."
anandtech: "the difference in resolution between 1080p vs 1440p was quite noticeable to me."

I actually use a cradle charger with my batteries and charging with the micro USB 3. A wonderful thing with removable battery system, unlike carrying a power bank, plugging in with a charger, or even with a power jacket.
We can have our Note practically wireless.

I don't care about QHD on a 5"+ screen, as I've already stated from my past posts. There's no point in going 500+ ppi on a 5" or 6" screen. Even 200 to 300 ppi is enough. No one is complaining a 247 ppi on the Note Pro 12.2, right? It's humanly impossible to see each pixels.
Your comment is irrelevant.

Also, the GN4 is the best screen bar none (the new iPhone didn't change that).
Get out of here you hypocritical lame troll!
Samsung decided not to make it water-resistant. Reasons why Samsung decided to do so are unknown but looks like the S Pen crappy port cannot be water-resistant like the headphone jack and the speaker. However, it is still sad to see for N4.
Let be clear. The USB 3.0 port doesn’t improve charging speed. If you charge your phone with a USB 3.0 cable, it will charge as fast as when charging it with a USB 2.0 cable. The new cable improves data transferring speed. Data transfers from your phone to your PC are a lot faster when using a USB 3.0 cable.
Sad to see this port is gone. It doesn’t matter to a lot of users but it is a downside for sure for all users who transfer a lot of files from their phones to PC.
TheNeighbor, 16 Oct 2014Nexus 6 is a good, having a 6" QHD AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 805, 3GB of RAM. Yeah, $650.... moreSamsung Amoled display doesn't appear as sharp as other LCD IPS display. It's because of their PenTile subpixel layout. Their PentTile subpixel layout is lower than a conventional RGB stripe, so true subpixel density increases around 20%. - So basically Samsung's QHD display only 20% sharper than FHD display which has RGB stripe where as LG's QHD display is nearly 80% sharper than FHD display which has RGB stripe. Motos QHD display is the true QHD display and Samsung's QHD is the fake QHD display.
Somebody who needs what I posted will not mind spending $200 more for the Note's features that define what a Galaxy Note is. It's not a mere smartphone with a big screen with high specs. The Galaxy Note offers the more productive tools and goes beyond what the others can do. This is what the specs oriented "visitors" who keep posting here don't get.
Continuing what the Nexus 6 lacks:
*No split screen - so ideal fit a big screen, and getting to do more. You can look at the summary hand notes on S Note, while you encode a more refined version on a word file:
*No SideSync - A very useful app to mirror your Note to a tablet or Windows PC. It can let you make and answer calls, and SMS directly with your PC. You can transfer files easily by dragging to and from screens. I like accessing the Note's video player and plays streaming into your PC's screen.
For $200 more, I'd rather have all of the extra features only the Note can provide than just a mere big screened devices with high specs. You might as well get the bendy iPhone 6 if you're a normal user.
Nexus 6 is a good, having a 6" QHD AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 805, 3GB of RAM. Yeah, $650. But consider these points compared to the more "expensive" Note 4, the Nexus 6 has:
*No SD card slot - a 64GB micro SD is relatively affordable now and definitively a plus to put in more media on the go. Getting a 64GB Nexus 6 would still be smaller user storage space than a 32GB Note 4 + a 64GB micro SD card.
*Some 6mm taller than the Note 4 and will not fit most top pockets.
*Fixed battery - you have to carry that charger, no chance for a direct extended battery, carry a power bank, you need to wait to charge. The replaceable battery system still carries the mileage for flexibility, and no waiting to charge on the go by changing to fresh batteries.
*No S Pen - great for the creative, and that eye-mind-hand connections to help analyze, contemplate, record thoughts spontaneously than text typing, draw diagrams for other ways to see problems in order to see them. I personally jot Notes for meetings, and with the split screen extrapolated key ideas from PDF or internet.
Motorola just ushered in the Nexus 6 with a 6" QHD, with worthy specs matching the Note 4, and is priced $650 which is about $200 less than the Note's pricing. And that complaint about "it's going to take Samsung a long time to update Android 5" for the Note 4. "Other OEMs have update right away with pure Android".
Well, what exactly will you be doing with the update? Ever so slight changes, and it's about Samsung's propitiatory apps that needs to be updated and tested after Google gives out the latest Android. It's only a logical course that these updates take time, but will even eventually gets to the device.
