The Galaxy Note 4 barely showed itself on the horizen, but we tech enthusiast don't have time for formalities. Right off the bat, we've run the new phablet through its paces by running a few performance benchmark apps on it...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

not bad keeping in mind that these tests are from just a preproduction device.... I hope before the release they will optimize the software

People will optimize their Note 4's S805 and their Exynos 5433 to achieve a lot higher than what we see here.

Because these scores are low for a phone running cutting-edge hardware like this. It's obviously not showcasing it's full potential. People will tweak the software around, change the kernel settings, mess with the thermal throttle limits and CPU/GPU frequencies to achieve higher I'm sure. The benchmark listings on the page showed here, seem un-calibrated.

I think pretty much
801/FHD = 805/QHD

where is papa smurf ???

lolll...note 4 is not even able to surpass Z2.

Sony took good decision by not going for s805 and QHD gimmicks.
Z3 & Z3C best devices .

So the Note 4 (I assume SD805 version) so far doesn't exactly blow away older phones (not even the Note 3). I know benchmarks don't say much but if Sony stayed with the SD801, then the SD805 seems to be a gimmick (like QHD at the moment).

I doubt either is a gimmick.

I would said SD805 is not really capable to support QHD ~
I guess thats why Sony stay with SD801 and FHD ~

Apparently only the 810 is a proper upgrade. Even the 801 is just a spec bump over the 800

Nothing special about running 800/801/805. Krait is 3 years old and has literally been ridden to death adding cores and clock speed and selling it as something new every 6 months.

QHD is a colossal waste of power as well. It yields even less improvement than the transition from 720 to 1080P. The display on the One X is still beautiful despite being "only 720P".

The Note 4 would gain 20-30% more performance and battery life if it were "just 1080P".

Unfortunately, the market is driving these QHD screens - don't put it in your flagship, and many people will pass it over.

Having a G3, I do like the display - but when I go back to my Note 2, I do not at all have a feeling like I've stepped into the stone ages.

I'd have liked to see phones stay at 1080p for a while and let us enjoy a significant increase in battery life. Now we're playing catch up again.

I bet if samsung didnt put QHD many many people might pissed off... so it is a right move

But not being a 64bit hurt it more why not 810 I think I will see what HTC has and nexus x

FWIW, the only phone that can be fairly compared to the Note 4 is the G3, because it's the only other phone driving a 1440p screen. The more pixels you push, the slower you'll be.

Yes. We're all disappointed in a 5.7" QHD screen that performs as well as or better than the other rockets in this class and brings the S-Pen along for the ride...

The LG is a spec monster for sure. Kinda like Frankenstein. Good parts but put together poorly in a usability sense.

The HTC is nice until you put a case on it and use head phones, then it's just another phone.

The Note series always was and still is a beast in every good sense of the word. It performs great, brings incredible graphics and has the S-Pen differentiator. The Note 4 just ups all that to the next level.
