I would sell my iPhone 6 plus and go buy note 4 right now only if Samsung doesn't launch. Another flagship within 4-5 months and start ignoring the existing flagship within months and focus all attention on upcoming devices besides a butt load of cheaper clones that help our expensive flagships from Samsung lost in Sammy crowd, my first major smartphone was Note 1 followed by s4 , note 3 and ultimately s5, now tired, they make good products, even better advertising but the WORST follow up and novelty feel. They flirt with their users, call apple guys iSheep or what, with Apple premium buyers can feel premium no matter how fool they look.

When did Samsung ignore their flagships? The S2 has some of the features found on the S4, the Note 3 was update few weeks after the S5, the S5 is scheduled to be updated to 5.0 in less than 2 months from now.

Its relative, please lets not make this a trash talk and fight like fanboys; samsung is slowest with updates compared to competition, and since you started with note 3's updates, if u remeber note 3 only got kitkat in system without any touchwiz changes. S5s UI is quite stable and note 3 was always more powerful but samsung never gave it the latest UI nor the True Octacore HMP (i dont exactly remember the thing that makes all cores work simultaneously). Note 3 and s5 share the same exynos chip and samsung had even tested it on note 3 but the device had run its course for a few months and then samsung put all focus on s5.. now no doubts the company is trying hard, rather commendable they have already started testing 5 on s5 but what about the big A series they are preparing to flood? ? Just 2 months from now s6 will be in talks and note 4 in shade.. but applers will flaunt their devices untill next fall in full glory.. and this really matters to people who invest so much.

The A series is supposed to be the mid ranger that everyone wants, getting a premium phone with respectable specs for half of the price of these days flagships. As for the updates, just because they didn't add the new flat icons to the update it doesn't make it a useless update, 1st of all you are getting the latest Android built with performance improvements and bunch of new features, you can always install a 3rd party launcher and customize your phone, not to add that ALL OEMs goes by this strategy, they never give you all the new goodies introduced with their latest flagship, including Apple. As for the 2 flagships strategy, again all Android OEMs follows the same path, HTC One and One max, Sony with their 6 month period, LG with the G series and Pro series. Even Apple have gone now with 2 flagships for a year. Lastly but not least, what matters the most for me is the ability to get a phone with the latest tech in the market, and i can't think of any Android OEM that isn't delivering which is what makes Android flagships great imo. Though I can't say the same about Apple.

Well we all are entitled to our opinions, but my first hand experience has taught me this only. Currently im using s5 for 4 months and got an iphone 6 plus, no doubts note 4 is a beast but i have somehow lost interest in samsung, here in my country India samsung mid rangers have become an eyesore and the worst part is the way they reduce prices in our market within months, last year I had bought note 3 at 47000 (indian rupess), right after a month my friend mocked at me when he got the same at 41 grand; then s5 was launched at mrp 54 grands and after 4 months its 35.. that stings. Atleast with apple the prices don't see that much depreciation atleast for a year. They did launch two devices but simultaneously so no worries for a year that your rival might get it cheaper within months. It feels justified to buy it the first day. For now it works for me.

I know Samsung eventually updates their devices to the latest Android OS, but I'm not sure if any Touchwiz features are updated all. Is the Note 3 getting any of the newer software Note 4 Spen features. Did the Note 2 get any of the Note 3's Spen features?

Either you're a liar about owning those Samsung Products, or you're too stupid to know how to "update" your phones, that you say you had... I don't believe you! And If you have to have it on the first day... You have to "pay" for that or wait 4-5 months.

Brilliant work by Samsung on both the product and promotion. Posting this from my charcoal black N910F Snapdragon805 Note 4, had it for 2weeks and thoroughly enjoying it, its my 1st Note device and I must say, it is in its own league from everything else Samsung and most other manufacturers make, I should have jumped on the Note bandwagon LOOONG ago, this is the most differentiated Android around, nothing else in Android brings the same unique and powerful functionality as the Note series.

Got mine 3 days ago. It's been like a love story so far. I went from Note 2 to Note 3 to Note 4 and this thing is amazing. I recorded vids last night with my friends and the difference ois makes is polarizing.

the funny thing is this. each phone mfg has a way to implement the hardware they want. i think that every mfg should be able to cherry pick aka liscense the best of the best part/software and build a kick ass phone, but the royalties would kill them. im not sure how the whole camera module works but if you could get a better one in your phone wouldnt you want it?? samsung is smart, put a prooven part in your phone. me personally ild pay for a thicker phone with more battery. imagine this, have the lumia 1020 camera in a s6/note5 product with the big battery to make the hump go away.why do we need such thin phones (to a point)

What Tech2 fails to mention is that the Exynos chip is miles behind the Qualcomm Snapdragon chip in regards to LTE Radio integration "on the same die" and it "Exynos" uses way more energy, even on a smaller die, reason why Snapdragon chips are in 50-60% of today's smartphones, media tech being the other.But again this is for another discussion.
