Two of the most distinctive features only the Galaxy Note first introduced and has in the World of Android:
Sony, HTC, or Apple have yet to even put multiscreen tasking, and digitizer pen into their products. This are the two prominent features and reasons for a big screen. LG seems to be getting it by implementing multiscreen. The trolls who post here don't get it either.

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2014ou should admit GN4 has "teribble" score in 3D MARK rank performance..Oh man, I honestly do not play games a lot with any of my Note. My Note 3 can do 3D games and tried them, but nothing worth keeping. I just care that it's responsive to my jotting notes with the S Pen, able to not overheat too much for those long hours of downloading torrents, can take high capacity memory expansions, can install so much more with the 32GB internal memory and has a decent camera.
I see samsung are copying apple again, only this time, it's releasing the same phone, galaxy note 3, with a few minor changes, and saying it's a new phone, c'mon guys, get a grip, that's one of the reasons I stopped using apple phones
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2014You give fault info...adreno430 is not announce yet...
It is adreno420.....Really sorry about that. That was an honest mistake. Actually, Adreno 430 have to come with the Snapdragon 810 chip.
Correction: Snapdragon 805 has Adreno 420 GPU.
[deleted post]I watched numerous reviews about the Note 4 on YouTube. I never saw anyone complaining about lagging. LG just failed to design a better QHD phone. Games are constantly lagging on LG G3 because the s801 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU are not sufficient to handle a QHD display. But Samsung never did that mistake.
I guess Mali t760 GPU will perfectly cope with the QHD display on Note 4. I'm not saying that we will be able to play games @60 FPS, but at least @20-25 FPS. Gaming is not the primary need of Note 4. We all know why are we buying a Galaxy Note.
[deleted post]I acknowledge that the Tegra K1 is the king of GPU, nothing come close to it at the moment. Don't compare the iPhone 6 with the Note 4. The iPhone 6 has a 750p display, whereas the Note 4 has a 1440p display. As I mention earlier the display resolution directly impacts the benchmark scores. So it's not a wonder that iPhone 6 has scored more in the benchmark tests. Moreover, the PowerVR GX6450 GPU in the iPhone 6 can't even beat the Adreno 430.
How come that Surface Pro is a mobile device? It's a high performance laptop/tablet. It has an Intel Haswell CPU, higher memory bandwidth Intel 5000 Iris Pro graphics, higher memory speed RAM and SSD hard. Therefore, it's not fair to compare a desktop class laptop/tablet with a phone.
I'm not even talking about the Xiaomi Mi4, it's can't even compare with the Note 4.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2014ou should admit GN4 has "teribble" score in 3D MARK rank performance..Don't forget about that the Note 4 has a QHD display. Benchmark scores on a QHD display phone is always lower than a full HD display phone.
The Adreno 430 in the Snapdragon 805 is not good as the Mali-T760 which in the Exynos 5433.
I don't much concern about the benchmark scores. The Exynos version of the Note 4 is a great phone combination with excessive CPU and GPU.
TheNeighbor, 04 Oct 2014I only can get a Snapdragon version for my region because of unlimited LTE service. Besides, I... more90% of the people here post comments without proper understanding about phones and their hardware. And the majority of the crowd here is Sony fans.
Unfortunately, the Exynos version of the Note 4 is not available in my country. I have already decided to not to buy the Snapdragon version. The Snapdragon 805 is still based on the ARMv7 architecture. Therefore, it's not worthy for me to spend a huge amount on a phone which has the old hardware. But I'll try my best to find an Exynos version. I'm waiting for the next year Note 5. I'm also hope to buy a Galaxy S6 in the next year.
Droid Terminator, 04 Oct 2014Motorola Nexus will kill the GNote 4 at once. ROFL
If Samsung Note 4 audio have dual speakers & sound like HTC M8. It will be a much better selling point for sure.
Currently I have a Note 3 & it is a let down on the audio.
I do not know how to root my Note 3.
I m still hesitating to buy Note 4 or wait for HTC M9.

And since you're insistent on benchmarks, what you actually stated aren't exactly truthful. 2 days ago, PA released benchmarks for the Note 4 Exynos, and it topped Sunspider, Geekbench multicore, 3DMark, and Rightware BrowserMark 2.1.
Have a good look:
What benchmarking standard did you base your comments on?... Your imagination? Give us that link (this should be interesting, everyone...) :-P
Any of the Xperia Z lineup are far away from the top ranks, and you even mentioned PCs against the Note as your comparisons. Lame. Really lame.
Benchmarks aren't best way to judge when getting a smartphone. Your imaginary Z2, your T2 Ultra and C3 are all low in benchmarks. Your battery stamina on your imaginary Z2 is also subpar against a Note 2 or 3. They are not even in the rankings!
Try harder in arguing your Xperia Z points against any Galaxy Note. Don't resort to comparing benchmarks against the Note series using non-Sony Product like Surface Pro 3 that has a Core-i5 processor. That's a real flawed argumentation there.
[deleted post]Yes, my friend,
Note4 with Big Gap is not a high_end phone and it is only a low cost phone with best marketing:)
Of course, Note 4 fail to Carey out graphic performance compare to premium smartphones such as Z3: iPhone 6: LG g3 and HTC
Moreover, Big Gap means that Samsung have low scale and it is proficient in plastic but not in metal and glass
Big Gap is a unpleasant and foolish design for high price phone, note4
Even Huawei p7 design is far better than note 4
Du to poor graphic, and touch wiz, note 4 is always laggy in gaming and all round performances*
[deleted post]I guess this is a bug in 3dmark. As in gfxbench the phone has similar scores as Adreno 420 and 50% higher than Adreno 330 used in z3. Also it matches the gx6450 in of screen tests. I hope this is true.
The TEGRA k1 will obviously be more powerful. The GPU used is Mali t760mp6 whereas it can be scaled to mp16. At mp10 it matches k1 and gx6650. At mp16 it is unfathomable.
Samsung tuned the clock and cores to match the Adreno 420 and hence avoiding buyer's remorse. The gx6650 and TEGRA K1 are not in any phone and hence the comparison is useless.
This phone will handle any game with ease as it has 50% advantage over Adreno 330 and most games are rendered lower than 1080p and just upscale.
Regarding the CPU, this phone blows everything out of water by at least 50% check gerkbench and so search n910s.
