Poll: Are you happy with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4?

Poll: Are you happy with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4?
There you go, folks - the successor to one of last year's most impressive smartphones is officially out, and the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 seems to have all it takes to successfully continue the Note series' legacy! For starters, it boasts a refined design that features thinner sides and the slimmest bezels a Galaxy phone has ever had. Its giant AMOLED touchscreen - a center piece of the Note smartphones - has been upgraded to an ultra-sharp QHD (1440x2560) resolution. 

Also, the Note 4's hardware muscle has been increased to a beefy Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 & 3GB RAM combo, which ensures blazing performance and good battery life even with the demanding display taken into account. And with a 16MP main camera with optical image stabilization, a built-in fingerprint sensor, and an improved S-Pen functionality on board, the Galaxy Note 4 is one seriously compelling device!

So, are you happy with what Samsung brought to the table at this year's IFA, or were left underwhelmed, expecting more out of the Galaxy Note 4? Vote in our poll and tell us what you think about the phone in the comments!

No, by the 0-50% charge in 30 minutes, QHD AMOLED screen, OIS and S-Pen features. Maybe next year buddy.

50% in about 44 minutes. QHD amoled is still Pentile, no better than an full HD panel in terms of sharpness (the difference is neglible either way), still a nice achievement for amoled. Improved camera is nice, and I say, only thing where they really took off compared to note 3. And S-pen features ? Who will even use all of that gimmicks ? You can't even count them and know which one does what, not even talking about using them. Yeah people are but kicked, into not buying this.

You're an idiot, then again, your idiocy is probably atypical and intentional, as is the case with nintysix/darkjackass/JakeLame. The diamond matrix layout is Samsung's own creation and isn't typical PenTile in its traditional sense. It brings longevity and efficiency that the standard RBG matrix simply can't provide and in no way detracts from the perceived "sharpness" of the display, especially at resolutions that high. What makes a good display is: power efficiency, brightness, contrast and color accuracy. All of which the new AMOLED panels likely possess. And for the record, 2.5k AMOLED panels are brighter, more energy efficient, and color accurate than comparable 2.5k LCD panels.

Stop drinking the samsung koolaid. Diamond matrix is STILL PENTILE. Theres no "traditional sense". Lol wtf is that. Stop making up crap haha Super Amoled = Diamond matrix = Pentile =2/3rds of a pixel 1080p Super Amoled = 720p LCD 1440p Super Amoled = 1080p LCD Super amoled is oversaturated and over brightened to make the viewer believe its more contrasted, more contrasted makes the viewer think its more detailed/sharper. Also it produces poor low level black gradients. Watch a scene in a movie where theyre walking through somewhere dark. Giant blobs of black on the Super Amoled. Watch it on an LCD, oh look theres a belt, hair line, clothing details, bark on a tree.

You and whoever thumbed up to your post are morons!! Have you looked at the screen of the 1080P and this latest quad hd screen? No difference my ass...I can clearly tell the difference. That quad hd screen is the best screen PERIOD!!! Get your eyes checked man. Go look at your washed out LCD screen on the LG G3....the Note 4 blows it out of the water. I can't wait to see this bad by in person!! Sammy FTW!!!

Explain to me how you can tell a difference when you don't have the phone in hand and are looking at it through your computer or other mobile device? Sounds like your simply a samsung fanboy. Some ppl don't think before they post apparently...

So, incremental upgrades as usual? Sorry, it's a nice phone, and I'll probably say this about every new phone this year, but it will take more than a bump in processor-speed, resolution, and battery-life to turn my head. Spec-wars are so 2011. At this point I'm looking forward to the next big leap. Will 64-bit processing prove to be revolutionary? I don't know, but what I do know is I'm admittedly more interested in smartwatches than any phone that's been released thus-far, and I feel depressed just saying that. Vents closed.

What about the metal frame? Amazing how many haters shouted about that before, now ignore the change and say "incremental". If you want more radical, how about the Note Edge? Lets see, newer, higher quality build OIS for the camera, Higher res Faster processor AND a version with notifications and uses for the screen on the freakin side of the phone. Boring/s

It's boring, and with the exception of the Edge's screen, you literally just listed incremental upgrades. I appreciate the metal frame. Heck, I even voted "yes" in this poll. Would I ever consider buying one though? Not at all. As for the Edge, that shows more promise, but this article isn't about that device, is it?

I don't think you two should assume that the people who said no are jealous or "butthurt" over the Note 4. In my case, I voted no simply because I was more content than happy with it. While I do welcome the new features that you listed, if you think about it you only could come up with 4 things that make this device great. Out of those 4 things, only 2 of them are really exclusive to this device which would be the QHD AMOLED screen and the S-Pen. Other devices that have a Qualcomm processor can say they have the quickcharge feature and OIS is starting to become the norm on new devices. I think that if you're a Note II owner then this device would be a great upgrade, but here is my list of things that could've made me happy with the device instead of just content: -a heavy overhaul of the UI. It's still very overdone and complicated at times. While I can deal with complicated UIs, it doesn't mean that I don't admire the more simplistic ones. -a new design. Yes they added new material and yes it's considered a "new design", but really if you compare it to the Note III it just looks slightly different. Also, it's the same screen size as it's predecessor but it increased in size. I would've liked to see a larger screen to device ratio. -Dual speakers. I'm tired of the one speaker on the back because it means you have to keep the phone flipped over in order to hear it. At the very least they could've moved the one speaker to the bottom of the device, or maybe they could've done what they did with their tablets and put it on the sides. -Dual-LED flash. I would much rather the Note have featured two flashes instead of one and that god-awful heartrate sensor. -Make Exynos the standard processor across the board. Which countries are going to get the Exynos? We don't really know yet, but I wish they had ramped up production to make it so that Exynos was the processor of choice for this device. If you're going to offer something exclusive to consumers then they should've gone all out by offering their own processor because in a few months we are going to be seeing 805 and 810 powered devices which means that the one thing the Note 4 had in advantage will be taken away. Anyways, that's just my take on it.

The quad hd super amoled screen in itself is a reason to get this phone!! That screen looks fantastic, much like the super amoled quad hd screens of the Galaxy Tab S, superior to any other screen out there period, at least until the 4K ones comes out and Sammy will win that battle too!!!!

still better than G3. And the fact that AMOLED consumes lesser battery than LCD. It will definitely beat G3 in battery life. I would expect 6+ hours of on screen time with more than 50% brightness

Amoled is the utmost superior to anything else, let alone Samsung still have thier SuperAmoled plus, to unveil.

Much efficient processor, and to begin with Note 3 had a very good batterylife.

No, by a less than 1% battery capacity increase with a 7.5% battery life increase.

They're still recovering from the Note 3. ;)

21. Tizen007

It was a tragic moment for them when the N3 was announced. Here today we are talking about a complete mental breakdown. I don't know if it is possible to recover from this one. Looks like they need some rapid charging from 0 to 50 in 30 min.

No we just have to sit back and wait for the Z3, which will have the... same processor, screen, less battery life capacity in mAh, and same uninspiring and unintelligent design engineering as the Z2. Sounds like a good day to be the Note 4 indeed.

57. Arte-8800

Posts: 4562; Member since: Mar 13, 2014

Unintelligent. .. even Note series they make becomes and has less curves. The N5 will have sharper corners. Come on, Dragontrail glass vs cheap Gorilla glass. Cheap aluminium vs Metal. But I must agree to S805 vs S801 AC, a slight difference.

67. JMartin22

The Z series never had a good design language and it could have always used work. Even with the IP ratings that is has. There's just a lack of effort put forth on the developmental front by Sony to really be competitive with their rivals in the mobile handset space. They keep echoing their niche which other competitors like Samsung are adopting. So it's not going to help them much longer.

When it comes to designs Sony is the best Even Apple copied Z series laptops Tvs Everything they make screams quality Look back in the 80s and 90s of Sony
