+2 for being disappointed by no OIS. It's okay though, 'cause the '3 won't be available on VZW.
Note 4 will be getting one of my upgrades as soon as it ships on VZW.

Improved G lens. hope the camera quality really improved! :)

I knew it, disappointing, comparatively speaking, or just in general really. Even if you are a Sony fan, you really should feel insulted by the OEM for trying to harp a product towards you which feels just like its predecessor. There was a real lack of effort put forth here.

Right? If they just called this the Z2S that would be fine. But an entirely "new" flagship?
26. xtremesv (Posts: 238; Member since: 21 Oct 2011)
If you change phones every 6 months then feel insulted for the few upgrades.
10. Sonny_09 (Posts: 49; Member since: 24 May 2013)
So every 6 month,they release something that looked exactly the same, claim certain improvement and announce it as new flagship? At the same time, insisting that 6-month release cycle is good and essential to stay relevant, yet couldn't release it with the latest processor / spec? really what changes over 6-month old Z2 that made them relevant in the industry? Someone please enlighten me..

Disappointed, the only thing that's good is the 2 day battery life. :(

This is the only phone right now I would take over my lg g3. But there is still slot of September left...

Why are there 8 articles all on the same phone? Feels like one article chopped up into 8 to get clicks.

'Improved' G Lens they said last year with the Z2 and look at how that turned out. #Flop

Three things I am mostly disappointed about this phone:
- Snapdragon 801
- No OIS
- 16GB built-in storage only... really?
The Note 4 comes with S805/Exynos 5433 (leagues faster than S801), screen curved around the edges (they say is for better touch), 4K screen, and 32GB built-in storage standard.
As much as there is a chance I might buy this it's really not what I expected. Now I'd have a much tougher time convincing myself not to get the Note 4 instead.

Sorry I meant 3K screen and screen chamfered around the edges
