I think Samsung did it again! Im a note 3 user from the first day it was available back in last september, and I am really really satisfied with the lag-free performance, the 2 full days battery time, and its overall versatility. I only found the multi window system a bit forced and weakly designed, and I am really happy that Samsung really focused on making the Note 4 software better. The new multi window approach is stunning and brutally effective. I love it. Watched the whole unpacked event, and said to myself every 2 mins - WOW I want that. I dont really care about the hardware spect - some people are mumbling here that why was the usb 3 dropped - well I used it only 1 single time in the last 11 months to transfer video files - other than that I use this as a charger port. Lucky us Samsung was wise enough to keep the 2 Amper fast charging. I think i will do just as nice with the USB2. The screen got a lot better in note 4. I dont really care about the resolution but as a photographer I do care about over 90% Adobe RGB gammut. I love it. I hate LCD screens and the lack of real black. AMOLED rulez again here. I would like to point out that many say Note 4 should have a lot bigger battery. I dont think so. With the latest 20nm litography CPU consumes a lot less power clock to clock. So overally maybe the Note 4 will be a new endurance king with almost the same battery capacity and QHD together. I think it will be a real flagship - and I only like to say it, when I think that something will really turn out to be a lot more useful than the current devices. Specwise the Note 4 is über - but it is the fine software environment which makes it a real flagship. I will surely buy it ASAP.
pankajptl, 11 Jun 2014For camera, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will have a 16MP rear camera along with optical image stabi... moreDont bother, but that camera you are not satisfied with is 3.7 megapixels! Not 2! At least read a bit before you start flaming a device.
I am glad samsung made another note phone however I am disappointed with the RAM. It should of been 4GB of RAM and no IP67!!?? (aka water and dust resistance) Those are my only 2 downsides to the note 4... NO! One more! Why is the note 4 only able to go up to 64GB for the microSD card? Shouldn't that be 128GB like the Galaxy S5?
To me the specs are fine. If Samsung could make a dual sim high end phone is better. Maybe for Note 4 dual sim for Malaysia market.
This specification is not enough to tempt a Samsung Galaxy Note3 Dual SIM (N9002 ) user to upgrade to Note4...The specification changes from Note1 to Note2 was also disappointing...But Note3 Specification was much better...So the wait for Note5 should be well worth it..
I am a continuous user of Notes version, comparing to Note 3 and Note 4, Its disappointing. Nothing Much changed, moreover it got a bigger screen and weaker battery.
Galaxy S5 LTE-A G906S merged into note 3(with small additions and deletions)
nice work !!!!!!!!!!!
Usb 2.0? Why? Note 3 and s5 have 3.0.. But ok,everything else is absolutely perfect..
Samsung missed the spot with S5 and now they seem to have done it again with the Note 4.
What is missing - No IP 67/57 certification - That is terrible
No Dual SIM
No 64 bit
No 5.9 screen
No 4gb Ram
No 64 hdd as standard
Battery as 3220 - well that is sad
No fm radio
Build quality ??
looks like the note 3........ fail samsung. Your profit rating will continue to drop for the 3rd straight year.

As a Note3 user for 6 months, I find it's still a bit on the small side. I use the light with no-hands, sitting in my breast pocket a few times a day. Half of my shirts cover the light.
Dropping the USB3 is a weak move. My laptop has USB3 for its charging port, so it's easy for me to use it for browsing the DCIM as well. This will just slow things down.
The biggest problems I have with it are the brain-dead Samsung apps and implementation of Android. Beyond awful auto-correct/keyboard implementation (especially compared to the excellent HTC keyboard), which actually had dual language IME (English/Chinese) when I bought it, but was subsequently broken and took 4 hours at a Samsung shop to get back to normal!
Also, the frustration with apps I don't want, need or care about being *FORCED* on me and forced to be running *ALL THE TIME* is quite an annoyance.
Further, the camera app controls for FPS are designed to be intelligent to blind monkeys with learning disabilities. I own multiple DSLR's and thousands of dollars of camera/video equipment, so naturally, this camera was of great interest to me. 1080p60? Oh yeah! 2.1k@30fps? Awesome! 720p120? Count me in!
I have the same modes available on my GoPro of course and it's very easy to set up frame size and speed.
But on my Note3, I always feel like I'm not sure what my settings are. I have to shoot a test video, check the file stats, just to make sure I've got the right settings. It's just not that complicated, so I really don't know why there's no literal controls. Just "super slow motion" "smooth" and other meaningless terms. Surely the people who don't know how to use a camera couldn't care less if it had 720p120. It feels like trying to use kindergarten sized crayons, but while wearing cement mittens and rosewood-lensed glasses.
So, no retina scanner, no sonar, not water resistant, not 4GB Ram and only USB 2.0! Haha, fail cakes.
thgun2, 04 Sep 2014I was actually looking forward to the new note 4, now I'm not so sure. The battery is only 2... moreHuman eyes sees a lot more then 25fps. 60hrtz vs 120hrtz tv is noticeable. Especially if your a gamer is it noticeable.
