Samsung Galaxy Note 4


Click to view updated thread with images




Posted by aussieland1
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a worthy successor to the legendary phablet family with every feature put into overdrive. It's the first Note not to grow the screen size, which remains at 5.7", but it now has nearly 80% more pixels thanks to its new QHD resolution pushing the pixel density from 386ppi to 515ppi.

It's a Super AMOLED, of course, but it's covered by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. For those who don't remember the Nokia N9, 2.5D glass has curved sides to make swiping from the edge smoother, and edge gestures are everywhere in Android now.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note 4 will bring a redesigned S Pen stylus that offers better grip. The accompanying software (S Note, Multi-window) has also been enhanced. A new Snap Note app will turn photos of printed documents into editable text.

The phablet will be available in two versions – one with Snapdragon 805 chipset and LTE Cat. 6 connectivity and one with Exynos 5433 chipset and LTE Cat. 4 connectivity. The phablet will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch with all the new TouchWiz features Samsung has come up since the Galaxy S5 launch.

The camera department has been upgraded and the main camera now features a 16MP sensor with optical image stabilization. The front-facing camera has a 3.7MP sensor (matching the pixel count of the screen) and a fast f/1.9 aperture.


Galaxy Note 3 next to its new sibling

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features three microphones for noise suppression that is so advanced that a special app can silence selected sources of noise from an audio recording.

The phablet has a metal frame like the Galaxy Alpha and a faux leather back, which will come in Frosted white, Charcoal black, Bronze Gold and Blossom Pink. There's no water resistance though (again, like the Alpha).

There's a 3,220mAh battery powering the phablet and you can add the optional Qi wireless charging panel if you like.

The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in October, the pricing isn't announced just yet.

Back to USB 2, no more USB 3

Posted by aussieland1
i noticed- i wonder why?

Anyway it looks nice- hopefully i will be able to find the S805 one here in UK....

I am surprised of the 4 GB of RAM... i wonder what bloatware has Samsung added that it requires so much RAM?

4 gig ram that's same as my pc 😂

Nothing was said WRT Water and Dust Resistance

So far I'm happy, I just want to know if it is or not water&dust resistant, either way it's my next phone without a doubt

I feel sorry for competitors, as Samsung have finally addressed the lack of metal many moaned and bitched about, and they seem to have done a fantastic job with the SW and other HW

I want to preorder!

Posted by Bonovox
October they said for release

My next phone. Really looking forward to see that screen in real life and take the camera for a spin

No fingerprint scanner or water resistance? Why not?

Hands on from Gsmarena says the Home key integrates a fingerprint scanner: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_ifa_2014-review-1126p2.php

Is that a reason not to buy no fingerprint scanner??

Posted by skblakee
It's a nice phone but the only things I would want from it are OIS, optimized software and the improved screen. For those on the Note 2 and other phones from around that time it's a worthy upgrade for those of us on the Note 3 it's not worth it.

Posted by Bonovox
I love being back with my white Note 3. One thing I hate about it is Samsung cameras with no OIS do tend to shake easily more than others I have noticed

LG mocking the Note 4

Posted by Tsepz_GP
I can't stop looking at pics of it at The Verge, PhoneArena, GSMArena and Engadget, I'm loving it's design.

New dilemma, do I get Frost White or Charcoal Black??? It looks incredible in both colors

Posted by Bonovox
Maybe see them in the flesh first then decide

Yep, that's what I'll do, I'll probably get Charcoal Black, I like how it looks with that purplish default wallpaper, very subtle and understated. I remember with the GS4 I saw both white and black, and felt the white looked too feminine for my liking.

Posted by skblakee
Interesting that its back with USB 2.0. Maybe many people didnt use the 3.0 function. I hardly use it on my Note 3

Posted by Tsepz_GP
Is this the 1st phone with Bluetooth 4.1? I see a number of sources saying it has 4.1, not sure whether I've seen other phones with 4.1.

Posted by northmonkey
Good to see a high clear zoom feature on the Note 4, wonder if it's better than the clear zoom on the Z1/Z2/Z3?

Posted by difenbaker
mmm... I kinda miss the faux leather at the back (stitches and all).
I wonder how it will fare against the iphone 6 phablet?
should be an interesting battle to see...

Note 4 vs S5


cheers!

This will be my next phone, in black. Im glad I held off the 2014 flagships for this.

Also it does have the fingerprint sensor.

Going to be at Voda on launch day. Think I want to get the Gear S along with the Note 4, I need a new watch anyway.

EDIT:

She's going to be a pricy beast

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - pricing and availability info
"If Samsung left you impressed by its new lineup of devices at Berlin's IFA 2014 and you're already aching to find what the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will cost you need look no further.
According to a leak over in the Netherlands the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may cost between €795 and €799 and become available on October 10. Four retailers already have a price up and running for the Galaxy Note 4 - Smartphone Shop, GSMwijzer, Studentmobiel and belsimpel.



In the UK various carriers and retailers have also expressed that they will be carrying the device. Phones 4u will offer the Galaxy Note 4 in the UK in an exclusive Gold color, Three UK will have the device as well, Carphone Warehouse has a registration form and expects the device in October and carrier collaboration Everything Everywhere (EE) has also said it will carry the device."

Well it should drop the Note 3 price. Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U are two of the main independent retailers which sell phones sim free but also contracts

Posted by Tsepz_GP
The Note 3 will be the bargain of 2014/2015:

Snapdragon 800 AB
3GB RAM
5.7inch HD1080 display
3200mAh battery
32GB Internal mem + MicroSD
IR Blaster
S Pen Suite


the Note 3 is better than the Xperia Z2, GS5, LG G3 and is even creeping on the Xperia Z3, unless water proofing is important to you, but it seems not to be to most, and size also doesn't seem to be a major issue considering the Note 3 sales compared to most of the above phones.

Samsung have a great solid line up really. You have the S4 and S5, Note 3 and Note 4, and then the Minis, you really can't go wrong with any, it's all down to what you want. Many people I know still very happy with their S4s and even Note 2s, that is still a hell of a smartphone if one wants a solid Phablet at a low price, kind of makes me wish I'd got onto the Note bandwagon sooner

Posted by Bonovox
Google Chrome got a new cool update ready for the new look Android L. Sorry off topic. Yes the Note 3 can be had on Ebay for £376 from many UK sellers and it will eventually get the new look Touchwiz

Posted by McKinley
Note series has always been good. Note 4 is not an exception but now it's time for me to go back to camp Sony for a while. I carry the Surface Pro 3 most of the time, so it does the job for me the Note 2 and 3 used to.

Posted by hussienkame
Note 4 have same battery compare to note 3 and more pixel, fast processor so battery will drain faster than note 3 for sure.
Note 4 price in Dubai

Can someone confirm if exynos 5433 used in note 4 is 64bit?

I've BEEEEN waiting for this, but as I said in the Alpha thread, Samsung tend to announce then leave us asking questions WRT a lot of things.

I have been checking their Exynos page each day, but they haven't said a single thing WRT the Note 4's Exynos, it's all about Alpha with the 20nm Exynos5430.

Posted by skblakee
It seems the Exynos version will be 64 bit while the Snapdragon version won't be. See below

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/review[....]hands-on-samsung-galaxy-note-4



Posted by luwi
If that is 64bit, why Samsung didn't highlight it in IFA?

Considering 64bit is a hype now in mobile world.

Tsepz You must be itching to get your hands on this beast of a phone. Its gonna be a looooong month for you.
skblakee Still happy with your Note 3 or are you gonna upgrade to the 4?
[ This Message was edited by: Hobbs on 2014-09-07 10:25 ]


Posted by skblakee
Note 3 for me. There is not enough on the Note 4 for me to upgrade. A lot of the software should come to the Note 3. The Note 3 is still one of the most powerful phones available as it sometimes outpaces the latest phones. Besides, the Note 5 should be 64 bit with the Snapdragon 810.

Posted by Wishmaster89
I wouldn't put my bets on 5433 being 64bit, more likely it is just a faster version of 5430 used in Alpha.

Posted by XperiaJunkie
Is any one else a little concerned about battery performance especially in SD805 variant, we all know that QHD displays look great but have a big impact on battery life and with Samsung keeping the same size battery I wonder if we'll see a drop in battery life similar to what we had with the LG G2 (81hr) vs G3 (69hr).

PS does anyone actually have their phone brightness set to 50% ? that's how GSM arena test devices, my Z1 is set to full brightness at all time.

Posted by rikken
Battery performance remains to be seen. LG G2 and G3 were using the 800 and 801 prosessors and they were essentially the same processor. The 801 is slightly faster in both CPU and GPU.

The Snapdragon 805 is more of a step up. It comes with improved thermal management which has led to better energy efficiency. Android L will also be more power efficient when it arrives

Posted by skblakee
Also take into consideration that Samsung has managed to up their battery life on the Galaxy S5 significantly with software enhancements. No doubt they are doing the same with the Note 4 so that there might good battery life even the same sized battery and a QHD screen. They claim that the Note 4 has 7% better battery life than the Note 3 so that is an idea of well it should do even with the new higher resolution and brighter screen.

Posted by aussieland1
Based on the below

http://www.anandtech.com/show[....]-ltea-battery-life-performance

I don't think that the battery life will be an issue on Note 4

Posted by Bonovox
Erica Griffin on You Tube her in depth videos if you ever have watched them. She said that the Quad HD, Snapdragon 805 Korean version of the Galaxy S5 had the same battery life as the original S5 & also performance, because of the 805 chip was not affected at all by the chip having the push all those pixels for the the Quad HD screen. So Note 4 should be even better!!!!! Unlike the LG G3

I hope this rings true with the Note 4.

My girlfriend (esato username cupcake30) has had her S5 now for a month or two. Ive never known an Android phone last so long. She would drain her S3 before it dead with her Facebook, texting, calls and web browsing every day. We were surprised when she had the same usage with her S5, yet managed to only drain the battery to about 80% by the end of the day. She wasn't using battery saving at all, its just the S5 somehow sips battery power compared to her old S3. Shes never needed to charge it through the day once since owning it.

Posted by Bonovox
I found the Galaxy S5 battery average at best not much different from other new flagships. But I am a heavy user

Posted by northmonkey
I've found the S5 battery very good, the other day I unplugged it at 7.30am and used the Internet and listened to a lot of music, battery was still at 45% at 6.30pm.

Posted by rikken
Another great display:

Do you really consider displaymate reviews so trustworthy? During last 12 months they have only reviewed Samsung mobile displays, don't you find it strange?
Samsung supplies them with devices they can test, so I'm sorry to say that, but it's rather unlikely that they are totally unbiased in their opinions.
But it works for Samsung to have a good PR.

I believe that the article is backed by actual tests- it is not just an opinion, so I am not too sure how they can be biased ? But if some other party/site will perform similar test and find different results then we could conclude I suppose that displaymate is biased.
