Chris, 26 Oct 2015Which is better Note 4 or Note edge and please, why's that? That's more important for me. I se... moreNot dismissing others real world experiences, I will contribute my own...
I've had this phone for just shy of a year, daily driver, intense use.
No resets (except for a week or two when I first had it due to a dodgy sim card, when replaced reboot issue only ONCE since (after a very nasty drop)).
No overheating. Though there was a period I installed a tonne of apps and the CPU wouldn't hit low sleep states, which meant I wasn't getting days of battery life. (I used CPUZ to see what the cores were doing and that allowed me to understand why my battery life was varied.)
Being a bit of a technologist, I understand that low reception zones can make phones fight hard (ramp up their power to the aerial) to keep reception. I've never had any issues with battery life or heating issues(and the phone has had lots of usage in high temperatures).
I travel through zero reception areas, I leave my wifi on, connect to hidden wifi networks at home (so wifi on means my phone will fight hard/battery drain trying to connect to a hidden network) and leave my screen brightness high auto. sunlight legibility is brilliant by the way!
Solid phone. I use a samsung fit band with it (love the combined functionality, eg never have to unlock my phone if wearing my 'watch', which has days of battery life as well)
This is one of the better value (from a productivity point of view) phones on the planet.
The S-pen has made this phone the best ever purchase for me simply for the art my daughter creates in 'Artrage'.
The audio support (and samsungs useful hearing test/phone recalibrate software) make this a great audio player (and SD card support means I run FLACs and still have a huge library), but combined with the ultimate screen (and colour profiles) this phone as a multimedia device is near unbeatable.
Add in things like Baldurs Gate being unplayable on non tablets, but usable due to the accuracy of a Stylus.. There really is something here, special/unique, for many users.
Now that the price premiums for this unit are dropping, this is a near bargain and future proof with regards what new thing can a phone do that this one cannot.
I got it to save me buying a tablet and a phone.
I can handle the phablet design as it allows for seriously low SAR rate (I don't mind my daughter using this phone without frying her head).
Not sure of any weaknesses, other than size and weight.
Battery is phenominal, even if other phones can beat it in endurance tests, it is irrelevant as this phone WILL get even the heaviest user through a workday. I have had four day runs on many occasions, and typically recharge around the two-three day mark.
Seldom have I worried about battery life, being able to crank out the tunes on the internal speaker whilst at BBQs never worrying I'll run out of juice/not be able to use the PHONE features...
Cheers, wish this reply was sooner, as that is frustrating.
Not 100 % certain this is your solution, this has helped me MANY times when experiencing similar issues (for friends family and my own phones..)
When mobiles get too low on charge they get stuck in a boot loop cycle.
Find the genuine charger (not a car charger/third party charger or USB jack on, say, a computer..), and let it charge up the phone.
It might just be it is at a very low charge.
Unfortunately the low charging power supplied by majority of alternate chargers on the market will not get the juice in quickly enough.. as soon as a little charge trickles in using standard 500mv chargers, it is sucked out when the phone boots up.. A higher power charger can get it up and running, ideally charge the thing fully as it has now been a week without juice, not ideal for batteries, but hey, good luck (I hope this is all is needed, or you already have it sorted)
note edge or note 4? am getting both at the same price and am getting confused what to buy.. any suggestions?
I bought this note edge 3 months Bach and screen got broken does it get replaced free of cost or how much I have to pay if it so.
Been using Note Edge for about 7 months. Not a single problem I found. Upgraded to 5.1.1 and its a lot better than 4.4 . More stable seamless performance, no battery drain, the best OS Version for Note Edge. The price is worthy for the Note Edge.
I saw the Marshmallow update for the Samsung Tab 10.1 .. would the Edge update coming soon?

Mirena, 29 Oct 2015I've SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 4 and wanna upgrade to SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE EDGE so can anyone tell me... morePal, you should keep your note4 instead.
The edge of this phone is more for entertainment and proving samy muscle's, in few month the edge and heart sensor and infrared will buther you as is useless and it's not for much of use.
I got this phone and turn back from lolipop in to kitkat, yes its stable and no heat or such what other guys are telling here, nut i got the note2 also and i think is more poverfull
