Why? a 5,7 inch with a smaller body to screen ratio?. Either a smaller body to screen or a bigger screen with same size. i think i'll be sold anyways.. i just need to upgrade away from z1. N4,ip6 or the s5 Prime

It will be 5.78 inch dude :)) A bigger screen will ruin the size.

DON'T wait for a big design change. Samsung is conservative and usually picks the slightly improved all around best solution. Or worse if you consider that instead of double led flash, to improve low light photo and video, they put useless (imo) hrm and fpsc in S5.
Their recipe is "if something sells don't change it much"

I feel ya that's why I bought a note 3 before they stop making them because we all know that samsung going to but that bullshyt band aid crap on the note 4 and flood it with more bloat ware that's not needed.

Guys the Note 4 won't have the bandaid look. The S4 had a look that the Note 3 was different in. I believe the S5 & the Note 4 will look different just like the S4 & the Note 3 looked different.

Have you ever really touched the bandaid in the store? It feels great on your hand.

@tenho A lot of phones "feel nice but you dont see them selling like hotcakes, simply because the feel isnt enough. People like the look/design of the phone first, before they actually are willing to care about the feel.

To Sammy a phone with normal specs and a cheap plastic shell is "premium"

I think everyone knows exactly what they want. At the price that Samsung sells their phones, people would like premium materials even if that means more durable, higher quality plastics and better design. No one really looks at a Samsung phone and calls it beautiful as they would say, the One M7. Samsung makes great phones but the entire package isn't quite there yet. LG makes better looking phones with better materials than Samsung does but they fail on the software side of things. Samsung needs to step up their hardware game.

No, they don't. LG's phones always have build problems ala the new G3 has plastic cracking issues. No such problems with Samsung's phones.

I don't know about you but the so called bandaid feels better more premium in the hand than that plastic LG G3. I had both phones the G3 and the GS5 and the GS5 is the better phone of the 2!

Samsung is going to F this one up I feel the best note was the note 3 there going to make this into a GS5 plus there going to put that band aid crap on it a fingerprint scanner that don't work and a heart rate monitor that no one needs unless you have heart problems it might come in handy then idk but I know this note is possible the last one because how big can u make a phone other than the Mega phone they have already.

Till the time note 3 was in works.. every body including me said that note 2 is the best phablet ever made and note 3 changed that.
Note 4 will turn the tables again I believe

To me it feels like the Note series is Samsungs new flagship cause Note is the one to get a real Boost in Features and design compared to the S-series. IMO

i am hoping for a 5.9" screen variant. there are other phones with greater than 5.7" but only Samsung does not compromise on the spec. Otherwise the pantech secret note looks good.

Here for you again:
Speakers on smartphones are very small. Small speakers when are pointing front , work ONLY LIKE A TWEETERS. And NOTHING ELSE. No bass there. To take some mid or bass , you need to put them in the box and even turn them back pointing inside the box.
Well, the point to have them on the back or on the side of the smartphones is TO MAKE ACOUSTIC BOX with your hands holding the phone.
You can easily try this. Put some music on your HTC M8 and listen it. Then turn your HTC back with the back facing your face. Holding the HTC like that you cover the speakers with your palms. Making "acoustic box". You will here more bass and more quality music sound. It will trade some loudness for the quality though(you can make same test with back-speakers phone, too)
New flat TV use the walls behind them or furniture that stand on, to make same "acoustic box" . NO FRONT SPEAKERS THERE. Right?
FRONT SPEAKERS ON SMATRPHONES ARE BS. Period.

If they keep the same screen size, but make the device smaller(with even better battery life)- they have a WINNER.

If you don't like anything about the OG Note 4, just wait a few months until the Note 4 F (Prime) is released.

Samsung should make a 1080p 4.7" snapdragon 800 2GB ram less bloatware 13MP camera 5.2x70x7.6 should be the demensions finger print sensor ip67 certification and i will surely get it but price it for around 400$-500$

wrap around screens are a recipe for disaster... one accidental drop from knee height is enough to crack your screen... anyone who've owned a htc butterfly will know what i mean... and that phone wasn't even fully wrapped

It also generates post and consumers leave feed back what the prototype or the final design, of what they think and assume.

- i dont want a gimmcky heart rate monitor
- better be something new in design
- i wont mind plastic back (but not the one with GS5 at all) but all metal (or a metal back or glass back) would be sweet for samsung
- i am sure it will be water resistant
- high MPs with OIS is a must with a dual flash (or xenon flash)
- IR blaster is a must and if they can add some sort of stuff for samsung LEDs (like the screen can be used as a mousepad or something), damn, i would love it. :)
