you people that are telling Samsung to change focus from the display to battery are ridiculous. You really think they aren't doing BOTH?? There is no way Samsung or any manufacturer isn't going to continue to push display tech. It's what we as consumers LOOK AT every time we turn on our phones and if one manufacturer can have an edge with resolution or color, you damn well better believe they are going to get that to market ASAP. I can guarantee that if Samsung stuck with standard HD displays for the Note 4 and other manufacturers like Sony or LG came out with a 4K phone of similar size, you same whiners would come back and complain about how bad the Samsung display is. Meanwhile, back at the bat cave.. I know that batteries are being worked on too. Perhaps the tech hurdles are a bit harder to overcome right now.

What you don't get is that an increase in PPI does not come "free." You need an increase in GPU power and overall battery just to power that high resolution screen. Providing power to a more power-hungry and GPU-cycle-heavy screen will take away any battery gains had they not continued with this stupid PPI race. What they could do is to actually give a damn about proper color calibration on their screens. The average person doesn't give a crap/can't tell whether or not their screen has 300ppi or 400ppi.

No they aren't making enough in terms of battery life,its basicly the same as i first galaxy s phone,everybody is soo excited about high ppi displays nothing wrong with that but common make a device that lasts at least 2-3 days.
