How much does this galaxy note 4 cost? When will it be available in RSA.?
abhiagg, 29 Sep 2014It could be water resistant ???My experience at MWC(unpacked event)
I felt like Galaxy Note4 was a real monster phone!
The best definition!
Possible to see even downy hair in ears!
Also, the fastest reaction rate made it feel like my part.
I assert it is the best phone of all that ever existed.
Mobilemaster, 29 Sep 2014That means to be confirmed. I let you know, Note 4 most probably will not have that feature.Even if it doesn't, surely there's a radio app that you can download (and use your earphones as an antenna like older phones)?
Natuka Gabunia, 29 Sep 2014What does it mean radio TBC? That means to be confirmed. I let you know, Note 4 most probably will not have that feature.
Question again as i din get a satisfying answer.
Does note4 have 64bit processor? I know exynos is 64 bit, but it is locked which means it will be as good as 32 bit. After the launch of android L, which is speculated to be best used by a 64 bit procssor. So my ques is can exynos's 64 bit be unlocked to use L's full features?
Another ques : will snappy version (which is not for Indian Market) of note 4 work normally in India?

get out of here you sad troll!
there is no perfect phone and will never be but the Note 4 is as close as it gets in 2014

Dual SIM is of interest to people who travel internationally regularly - obviously you are not one of them
I know about a battery pack - the point being that most people dont want to carry additional stuff.
The Sony Z3 Dual is a IP 68 , Dual SIM phone that beats the Note 4 in many areas.
the N4 is hanging on thin ice . Samsung needs to do much better or it will start sinking
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014I've read where 64 bit wont be enabled. Is that true?We'll have to wait for android L to know about that as kitkat doesn't support 64-bit. So on kitkat the phone will only be on AArch32 or 32 bit.

Most users don't need dual sim. Only cheap chines phones are dual sim and some midrangers. iPhones, HTC, sony or LG no one uses dual sim in their phones, yet they succeed. It's good that samsung gives you an option to do that.
Let's wait for battery tests. The phone is already 8.5 mm. it'll cross 10 mm for 4500 mAh battery. Plus the battery is removable. Also you can purchase a 10000 mAh zerolemon battery for your phone and use it for 4 days if you can live with the thickness. Also you can buy additional batteries and they're pretty cheap, around 20$.

As far as bend goes that is apples issue
IP68 - is CRITICAL for any high end phone succeed.
Dual SIM after a few months - that is how to loose customer loyalty
4500 Juice for at least 2 - 3 days
Speakers - well the HTC M8 is much better
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014Exynos is for cheap phones with low quality:)
It is only a dummy chipset and
Samsung has us... moreNo. Exynos is a brand.
By your logic also snapdragon 200/400 is used in super cheap phones.
The exynos used in note 4 is a 20 nm ARMv8 cortex a57/a53 combo which will simply blow away the 28 nm ARMv8 krait based snapdragon 805. The exynos is also 64 bit capable wwhereas snapdragon 805 isn't.
In addition, the exynos supports H.265 for 4k while s805 doesn't. Exynos also uses wolfson DAC and sieren audio chip which mean audiophile level audio quality.
Exynos is going to kill the snapdragon this time.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014Good points
We all know the cellphone has become the most important device for a human.

not making it robust - Didn't you see the bend tests of the Note 3? The GN4 is meant to be better.
No IP68 - IP68 would be nice but not at the expense of a bigger device like the GS5
No Dual SIM - There was a dual sim Note 3 so there will be a dual sim Note 4.
4500 mAh - Really? How heavy and thick do you want it? With a replaceable battery, fast charging and a more efficient screen and processor its battery will be fine.
speakers very average - The one review i have seen that commented on the speaker said it was beater than the GN3. I would prefer better speakers though on the bottom not back.
