Samsung have featurings and more than vanilla phone?
What a shame for does people doesn't know how better it is to use the build in Operating System applications that to add on top off the 3nd part on the OS.
Does Samsung featurings aren't all useful and makes the OS more heavy. Don't believe? Google "Moto G 2014 faster than GS5" while the GS5 have Snapdragon 801, 2Gb Ram, more featurings the 3 times cheaper phone beat it in test.
In fact each new stock android released come with better featuring than the previous on for example Android 5.0 is far advanced with a lot better features than the Android 4.4.4 . the GNote 4 will get maybe 2 times the updates to the upcoming version but after 4 or 6 months of waiting.
All Samsung features are not base on Tizen OS which is even unknown by many and far behind Google to when it comes to features, more applications on market, optimization and more. But the come on top of android OS.
Motorola did not disturb the android OS leave it mostly stock but added some well optimized applications and so lightly that the phone feel more free and any other phone from other companies.
Then why does not Samsung release a Galaxy Note series with all the best features and applications with Tizen OS or Bada OS to take on Android vanilla phone? No, Samsung knows how good android OS is but try to different pas making the OS experience so different.
iPhone OS have best experience than Samsung android phones.
The Nexus 4 old phone will received Android 5 and will have more features for 2, 3 month to get update because of those features.
Samsung is going down
TheNeighbor, 18 Oct 2014Nexus 6 is the ultimate VANILLA Android device. Not even with a micro SD card slot is there, n... moreG3 supports upto 2 TB (2048 GB) memory card. Read its manual. Note 4 is nothing.
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2014Why we should not buy note4*
NOTE 4 is 8 gram HEAVIER than note 3!
Note 4 is thicker and na... moreLike 8 grams difference matters between Note 3 & 4.
Like this hairline widths would matter.
All video reviews show there are no wide gaps.
There are no lags.
You don't use multi screens on Windows PCs?
The UI on even your C3 is the same on the higher Sony devices... What's your point?
Leather texture is better that your C3's shiny scratchable plastic.
No, GSM Arena already tested the battery to be at the excellent level, getting more than 10 hours continuous use, better than the Note 3.
Your C3 is also a micro USB 2.
You care for the slow speed data cable transfer on a z3's USB 2 too?
Your C3 is a low Snapdragon 400, and your pretend Z3 still just has an SD801. What's your point about the Note's SD805?
Lack of innovation? See the Z2 and Z3... Same processor, camera, UI, same internal memory, same everything...just the sides are different but NOTHING to set them apart.
All your comments suggest that the Note 3 is high end now from your perspective now.
You're complaining how QHD wastes battery, well try complaining that to Sony because they'll have it on the Z4:
Yes, the Z4 will be your next pretend device you'll claim to have beside all your Z phones to troll on Samsung pages.
Goodnight my name is James and I am wodering if the note 4 is planning to upgrade the android to v5?
TheNeighbor, 18 Oct 2014Nexus 6 is the ultimate VANILLA Android device. Not even with a micro SD card slot is there, n... moreI had the nexus 10 for a few months. I found the vanilla android OS to be missing a lot of features of my note 2.
Nexus 6 is the ultimate VANILLA Android device. Not even with a micro SD card slot is there, nor a removable battery. Vanilla Android is plain, no added on hardware features to do other stuff. Faster, yes but not much. Why in the world would anyone buy a vanilla device and brag about its $100 less price tag than a Note 4 that has so much more features and even a micro SD card slot to add on a possible 100GB+ more storage?
Sarabjeet Singh, 18 Oct 2014Yes I bought it from India at Croma store it's available in white and blackCare to share the location of this Croma store? which city and where?
Yes I bought it from India at Croma store it's available in white and black
Some very sad individuals (looking at 117) who quite obviously don't have a clue what they're talking about and only here to spout they're mouth off and annoy...
Cracking handset, nothing to match it in the Phablet stakes.
Many points you make are pointless drivel. Read through your regurgitations and really try and understand why our opinion is null and void...
Much love amigo
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2014So as per your logic here is my useless list!
IP certification- most gimmicky feature ever... moreEdit - @117
I totaly disagree with ur all comments , I m very much bored with Vanilla android ,
Moto X user , also used Nexus 5 of my friend 1 week .
I say , now I will never buy any Pure android phone .
Yes , they are faster than all phones , but other phones with similar spec are good enough in performance .
Pure android is boring like hell and I regret that phones now .
I m confused between Galaxy Alpha and iPhone 6 ,
As note 4 is F.ing too big for me
AnonD-276592, 17 Oct 2014910G and 910C910g is snapdragon......pal !
It’s not available anywhere in the national capital of India IE New Delhi or pretty much anywhere among the prominent sellers of the country even including Samsung’s own ‘smart cafes’ or ‘digital plazas’ who don’t have a clue on its release date,you guys should definitely run a story on how Samsung supplied negligible stock to the country to claim their product is ‘sold out’,anyone who wants one in the country hasn’t got one
This phablet is simply beautifully built, stunning to look at , lightning fast and a joy to use, good job Samsung, galaxy note 4 is still the undisputed king of the phablet . nuff said.
AnonD-184455, 18 Oct 2014Fingerprint scanner=its just a gimmick,its a smartphone or medical device?
Replaceable batt... moreSo as per your logic here is my useless list!
IP certification- most gimmicky feature ever, because Most people don't go swimming with phone and in order to maintain water tight feature, they are forced to buy charging cradle.
20 MP camera- another gimmick, because most people don't print photos clicked by phone. Most of them only upload to SNS like facebook.
glass back- gimmick, because once you drop your phone you are gonna get nasty spider web. plus you are gonna pay hefty sum to replace your battery.
On screen button- waste of screen real state, Use chrome to know what Im talking about.
So my friend, if you are trying to prove other phones are bad, look at the phone you have. All features are subjective. One's gimmick is others best feature and this applies to all the phones available in the world. You don't have to go hard on any phone. if you don't like, just don't buy it, buy whatever phone YOU THINK has best features for YOU. Let the phone lovers have healthy discussion here, you can join other forum. Please just go! You are littering the forum here and this won't help anybody.
