Samsung posts first Galaxy Note 4 unboxing video
SamsungTomorrow, a PR arm of the company, has just posted the very first unboxing video of its super-hot, upcoming Galaxy Note 4 phablet. The relatively short, two and a half minute-long video is in Korean, but English subtitles are provided, so you can follow along easily. 

The 100%-recyclable box contains the usual -- the 5.7-inch Note 4 itself, along with a USB cable, a charger, earphones (with extra tips of different sizes), spare S-Pen tips, and, of course, an extra battery. Keep in mind that, as has been the case up until now, depending on your region, the packaging may be different (for example, no spare battery). 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now commercially available in South Korea, and a global roll-out is imminent. One of the highlights of the new Note 4 is a sturdier metal frame and a somewhat different faux leather back (no stitching this time around), along with the super-crisp, Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution Super AMOLED display. The phablet will be powered by either a Snapdragon 805 or an Exynos 5433 chip (depending on locale), along with 3GB of RAM. The 16-megapixel camera is also optically-stabilized -- a first with the Note line. The phone is expected to cost $299 on a 2-year contract with the major US carriers.

P.S. Earphones ON at the 10-second mark.

I'd rather eat my own wedding vegetables than own a Samsung phone or tablet. Next!

I know the feeling of new tech in your possession...

Are you getting Note 4 or the Edge?

It's totally boring, dude.

Just like your using the old note 3 for this note 4.

They just upgrades specs, features and put gimmick and the TouchWiz laggy.

Guess what? Since iOS6, lags and app crashes rates are going higher and higher, and they need to release bunch of minor updates that breaks more than it fixes.
As for the boring looks, please remind me what Apple brought with the iPhone 6? It is a mix of the 2 years old iPod and the HTC M7. They ran out of ideas, and that's why they had to copy android with the 4.7" screen (when they always said 3.5" is the perfect screen, then contradicting themselves and moving to 4", then again 4.7"), and also copying Samsung with the Note series.
I don't wanna forget the bunch of features they stole from Android and added them to iOS7 and iOS8, add to that the "gimmicky" health features found on Samsung devices, including the heart rate monitor found on Samsung Gear watches.

Notes are actually good compared to other phones... I dont know how big corps work, but I'd consolidate all my resourses at what I'm good at and make it best: samsung was a pioneer into phablets, and they did good, they moved a portion of the market into phablets which was a ridiculous notion when they attempted, but look at the market now..

A new touchwiz...
And rename it to Exynos UI .

39. tech2 (Posts: 3451; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)


Calling it Exynos UI would be a stupid decision especially when Samsung is already Snapdragon in lots of its phone. They're even considering Intel's Core M chips for future tablets.

Dunno ... but they should rename it.

37. maherk (Posts: 3724; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)


Same here. I love what touchwiz brings, but I am kinda bored of the way it looks after 4 years with only slight changes here and there. They need an overhaul of the UI, and let's hope they ll go for it with the S6.
Just take a look at the G3's UI, it looks much sleeker, modern, and more mature when compared to the G2's UI.

The UI has gotten several subtle changes over the years and has definitely gotten flatter.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/The-evolution-of-TouchWiz-5-years-of-change_id55639

Being said that there is still a lot of room for improvements. They should strip all of its UI and make it look like a Nexus device with added Samsung features much like what Motorola does. That would be a perfect Samsung phone all round.

Samsung hardware + Android UI = The best phone on the market.

on hardware there is no problem but software should be overhauled. they should change it like lg did several months ago

64. tech2 (Posts: 3451; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)


No. It shouldn't be any different then Nexus since all the apps would now work around the design elements from Android L. Going the LG route will just cause several visual disparities.

Not to mention a nexus design would mean better updates since it requires comparatively less design changes.

23. aba71983 (Posts: 805; Member since: 24 Jul 2014)


They removed because it is useless just like the other specs and features inside the note 4.

Look at all accessories and look class A that you can buy in the store worth $10.

Anyway, that's my personal opinion and we're different on what we like.
