First software update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 improves its battery life even further
posted by Peter K. / Oct 13, 2014, 4:29 AM
That's right, Samsung is already rolling out a firmware update for its latest powerhouse of a phablet. Rolling under the XXU1ANJ4 firmware name, the update is flaunting a bevy of performance and stability improvements to the Galaxy Note 4. However, the most important refinement is the further-enhanced battery life of the phablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already found its rather high-ranking spot in our battery life hall of fame, topping each and every device with Quad HD display on board in terms of battery endurance.
Then again, nobody usually complains when a smartphone receives the ability to operate longer after a full charge. It's not known by what extent Samsung has improved the overall battery life of the Note 4, but even a slight spike in this department will be surely regarded highly.
The update will be available right out of the box for those who are looking forward to the launch of the Note 4 in the following days and weeks. After you lay your hands on your new phablet, you should head to Settings > About phone > Software update and check for the battery-improving firmware goodness, it should be right there, patiently waiting for you.

A modest update doesn't make something better.

i think what it is saying is that the screen has accounted for 25% of the battery usage because it has been on for that amount of time. it lasts longer than that but at the moment it has been on for that long.

The best phone of 2014 - Most definitely. Even iPhone owners don't want to admit, the Note 4 is better. The fact is this. Samsung has been making large phones longer than ANYONE. Anyone who expected a newcomer, who took their phone and basically increased the size and did nothing else. They were so in a rush to get bigger, they didn't even fine-tune the process. They did exactly what they did with the iPad. They basically took and iPod Touch, increased it to 9.7" and changed nothing else.

The best just got better ! I would rate the battery life of this phone even better then Z3 since: 1. Quite a few of the other sites have shown Note 4 exceeding Z3's battery life. e.g.http://www.gsmarena.com/batter
2. Inspite of that Note 4 only takes 90 minutes to charge whereas Z3 takes 4 hours to charge !!http://www.phonearena.com/revi ews/Samsung-Galaxy-Note-4-Review_id3812/page/4

But note4 is better than xperia z3 for me Because I need the S pen but have no use for waterproof or dual Sim, note4 has arguably better camera and better battery life and recharge time. The price of xperia z3 is almost the same as the note4 in my region. ^see what i did there?

You're wrong. Xperia Z3's price is as the same with note 4 once available here in Saudi Arabia. Only Iphone 6plus priced at $860, the only phone priced that high. HTC still expensive after being released few months ago, unlike Samsung phones, lower it's price after few months also and people can afford to buy it. Check jarir bookstore and you will know what I'm talking about.
