Anonymous, 07 Oct 2014Well from pre orders registrations it looks like Samsung is scraping the bottom of the barrel.... moreFinally I see something that Samsung has to take note of literally.
Samsung some advice
1) Always announce all your variations at 1 time - No Duos or Active later - You are loosing a lot of customer good will
2) All high end phones must be IP certified - with removable battery
3) All high end unlocked phones must be Duos
4) Apart from the great screen stereo speakers is a must for all high end phones

MegaPints, 06 Oct 2014Please send both Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 (SM-N910S)and
Exynos 5433 (SM-N910C) versions of th... moren910s and n910c are both exynos. n910s is exynos 5433 + LTE cat.6 and n910c is exynos 5433 + LTE cat.4
The snapdragon version is n910f. t also has LTE cat.6
Anyway, I guess that india will get the LTE cat.4 version i.e. n910c as india doesn't even have proper LTE, let alone LTE-A . So india will get n910c.
Indians are lucky that they are getting the insanely powerful 64-bit exynos version. This will justice to the really bad note 3 exynos which was launched in india as exynos is much better this time.
.Andy., 06 Oct 2014note 3 has not HMP sallution....mean it cant run all 8 cores at a same time like s5 or note 4 ... moreI guess it's called SMP. Anyway, the exynos variants (n910c/n910s/n910u/n910h) have HMP enabled. That means any of the 8 cores can run in any combination from just one cortex a53 to all 4 cortex a53 + 4 cortex a57.
I can give you proof but I guess you'll believe this.
I was planning to upgrade two of my Note2 to Note4 but now decided I should skip this one out. USB 2.0 and no waterproof are some of the reasons for not upgrading.
A guy at the Samsung store in South Africa (Sandton) said that this phone the note 4 is IP67 certified - dust and water resistant
Does it really ????
Bunyip22, 06 Oct 2014IP 68? I'm thinking the majority would rather a slimmer, smaller, cheaper device.
Dual SIM... moreWell from pre orders registrations it looks like Samsung is scraping the bottom of the barrel.
Expectations have gone up and Samsung is not meeting then.
Ip 68 us a must with removable battery.
A decent company would release or at least announce a dual SIM version at launch not some time later and that to only for China.
Obviously you dont use speakers in public. However you also dont use head phones in the privacy of your house or car hotel etc so stereo speakers is a must.
4500mAh is the juice required fir 2 days
Try defending Samsungs short commings all you want however I hope the dont listen to guys like you of they do it will be the end of them
microSD, up to 128 GB?
on Sam web it says microSD up to 64 GB
which is correct ?
Does anyone know for sure if the Exynos 5433 version would work on Vodafone 4G UK? I believe Vodafone use the 2600 and 800 MHz bands for 4G.
note 3 has not HMP sallution....mean it cant run all 8 cores at a same time like s5 or note 4 or bla bla bla......
am i right......or not ??
pls tellll me.....!!!
Techteen14, 06 Oct 2014Galaxy Note 2, 2012 32 Bit quad core processor clocked at 1.6GHz vs. iPhone 6's dual core 1.4... moreClearly note 2, i compared iphone 6 plus with my note 3 and i was wondering why are people still buying iphone's for these insane prices...Then if you compare the iphone 6 with this note 4 it will just leave you questioning society on how people just throw there money on stupidity,
It is worthwhile. You will find yourself getting so many things done with the note 3. I have an ipad but I hardly touch it because my note 3 is more convenient to use.
I have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This will replace my Samsung Tab3 10.1 tablet and my T-Mobile Samsung dumb phone which costs me $100.00 US per year, pre-paid.
Am I throwing my money away on the Note 4, which added to my wife's T-Mobile account will run me $360.00 for the year (in addition to the cost of the phone)? Or does it actually have enough practical features to be worthwhile?

32 Bit quad core processor clocked at 1.6GHz vs. iPhone 6's dual core 1.4GHz processor (64-Bit is stupid, most DESKTOP applications are still 32 bit, and the Snapdragon 808 and 810 are 64 bit, as is Android "L")
Skype/Google Hangouts video/voice calling to any device (Blackberry, Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10/Phone, OS X, Android, iOS) vs. FaceTime's iOS/OS X only video/voice calling.
Interactive Notifications, customizable Notification center with quick settings.
No finger print scanner (some Droids had facial recognition, though)
Google Wallet, accepted at any location Apple Pay is (plus the Note has UNLOCKED NFC so ot can be used with NFC chips and the like, unlike the iPhones locked NFC that can only be used with Apple Pay)
Android 4.1.1 with Project Butter, completely customizable/open source.
High graphics games and apps
Glossy plastic, more durable but less aestheticly pleasing (enter HTC One)
5.5" 720p (this IS 2012) screen
8MP rear camera/1.9MP front camera
Industry standard microUSB port and USB OTG vs. Proprietary "lightning" port and no OTG.
2GB of RAM
microSD card for expansion of up to 64GB.
Which one looks better on paper, the Note 2 or the iPhone 6+?
deesan, 06 Oct 2014MrAnkurJain, I agree with you with except either typo error, naivity, tunnel-vision mind or ju... moreDeesan, I have no idea where you got this "most phones" idea from.
-IIRC, the Note 4 is the first smartphone to be released in America with LTE Cat 6.
-The only phones I can think of with higher-than-20MP cameras are a few Nokias and the flagship Xperias. Except for the S5. ;)
-The HTC One M8 is the only phone I can think of with Stereo speakers, and who the heck uses speakers on phones for anything other than voice assistants and phone calls? (The latter doesn't even use the same speakers) It's rude to use them in public (and more convenient to use earbuds/headphones, which sound better anyway) and when at home you just use Bluetooth/NFC speakers. Or headphones.
-The HTC One M8 is the only phone (except those cheaty Oppo phones with the rear camera that flips to the front and a few cheap Chinese anomalies) that has a front facing camera higher than 3MP. And TBH, do you really need to zoom in on your selfies that much?
-Only other phone with a QHD screen is the smaller LG G3.
-Only other phone with a PPI of over 500 is the smaller LG G3.
-I'll give you that, although Samsung does it better/right. It can run SIXTEEN apps at a time.
-On the S Pen, there is no better stylus, especially when you count its software integration.
-On the price, it's only ~$100 more than the average baseline flagship, but you get the fastest smartphone processor on Earth right now, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (someting Apple used to charge you $100 more for, making their prices equal), a stylus, the second best screen used in a smartphone yet, a great camera with OIS and the best OS on earth, whether it's covered by TouchWiz or not.
Thus, the Note 4 will remain the pinnacle of tech (if you go by raw specs) for the next 12 months or so, or until the 808/810 launches.
