Yes. The Not-yet-released-or-even-leaked-phone...
That's what I am talking about...
I am a Big fan of Samsung Note Series.
I am a Big fan of Android. But not stock android nexus.
I prefer to have a phone that has extra features that isn't OS related.
Like IR Blaster (IR Remote)
a PEN! Omg, Photoediting is DA BOMB with a pen, accuracy is amazing. (And not those after market stylus).
Battery capacity. SO HAPPY for large capacity - My note runs for about 2 days with medium usage (I optamize my phone though).
Now they have super-charge 5.3 or 5.7 v chargers for these new guys I am happy to see them charge faster! yay!
I owned Note, Note 2 and Currently Using Note 3.
Note 4 was not a BIG upgrade to me, so I never bothered getting it.
To speculate, I assume, Note 5 will have features of Galaxy S6/6Edge?
I really really really hope they have EXPANDABLE memory. -__-"
I was listening to a Tech Podcast earlier this week, and the host stated companies are going out of MicoSD so they can re-market expandable memory as not blank media, but rather adding additional software cards. (Which is weird?)
Thoughts? Opinions? Random jokes?
Apple Users - Keep Out. 😛 We don't need your Gucci-status phones here. haha. kidding x__x
I have a note 4 and its my first and I love it !!!
I had the Samsung S3 and S4 in the past.
I think that the PEN is excellent. Have you seen some of the art work on the PEN.UP app?
I also hope that it offers Expandable Memory! ... That might be a deal breaker for me when it comes to upgrading to the Note 5.
Samsung Note 5
So there I was, on Samsung's website reading about the latest Samsung Note, how it's bigger, better with an amazing 4K video capture to the new powerful 13-megapixel camera. But then realize I was reading the specs for the older Samsung Note 3. My thoughts then switched to: wow they have so many notes from smartphones to tablets, when's it going to take a break? But then I went to thinking about all the Samsung Note fans and ended with thoughs of how the new Samsung Note 5 is going to be something great to look forward to .
Honestly no one knows what the actual specs or what the device looks like (other then a couple of leaks). Until then we can't really say much but from what i have heard from sources is that it will NOT include a SD card slot and removable battery. That will draw many people away from it as the Note series has always been about SD card and bigger / removable battery.
The design most likely will look similar to either the Note 4 or S6 from what the leaks have shown. I do want a Note 4 design as the S6 as good as a device is, the design isn't as great.
I don't really find Next issue or any magazine app useful for me as i don't really use them. Mind u i don't read magazines lol.
What Samsung needs to do is have the ability to let users actually remove pre installed apps and not so much bloatware. I hope this comes with the Note 5.
I'm using the Note 4 as we speak as i sold my S6 edge ( due to poor battery life) so I hope the Note 5 has an amazing battery life as the Note 4 has
That isn't a firm and actual date for Canadians. If you read it, it doesn't say anything about Canada and when it will actually come out here. That's just a rumoured date for it being announced and released. If you noticed, all Samsung devices get released in Canada different dates then the rest.
The date isn't announced yet until the device is announce.
It's nice to see Samsung doing this before the iPhone release. Hopefully we get it before September!
I love the note 4
It's the best phone I have had in a while. Camera is great. The bigger screen make reading and sending emails on the go a lot less painful. PEN.UP I do agree with you some of the artwork is way too good to be done with the pen. However a friend of mine has done some amazing sketches with the pen.......As far as my art work , I have done a few stick people
Stick people is a good start @RogersAliciaG lol
I still feel like some of them are cheating in the App >__>
For me, I originally started the Note series because I wanted to watch Videos with better and crisp screen (Btw, I never have my screen set to high, it is BLINDING)... the phone itself turned out to be more useful than I expected.
I avoided PEN.UP for a long time because I felt so overwelmed at other people's skills lol
Gonna go back and check out more stuff thanks for reminding me lol
@Roglebo Yeah Note 5 isn't official or set time frame. Canada will probably (but hopefully not) be one of the last countires to get it.
It usually starts with First launch at India.
Why at India? I don't know. Samsung likes Indians a lot I guess. (I assume it has to do with bigger market in east)
On side note:
I find all other phones (including previous iPhone that fit inside the screen) like fisher price toys... I can't function with tiny phones. So now I am only able to get "phablets."
MONSTER update in Note 5.
Holy smokes. Don't know if you guys got yesterdays update on the Note 5 but HOLY SMOKES this was one of the best incremental OTA i've got on any phone.
FYI, i came from the S6 edge which i did not like at all, battery life was terrible and it was laggy as heck.
2 things that have radically, first, there was not much lag to start with on the note 5, espacially comparing to S6, but whatever lag there was is not gone. Phone is smooth as butter. I can saturate the RAM to 90% and it still doesnt lag a bit. I have over 175 apps installed.
#2 OMG battery life went from being a little better than S6 to FINALLY A NOTE WORTHY BATTERY LIFE.
Just 48 hours ago, I'd wake up at 7:30am, come back from work around 6, not using wifi at work, just LTE, having about 1.5 - 2 hours of SOT with about 1h of streaming on spotify (30 minutes driving back and forth) plus about 30 minutes of watching Narcos on netflix during lunch break. Then at home i'd switch to wifi, adding about another 1.5 hours of SOT browsing, social networks, catching up on my YouTube subs, and ofther tasks. By bedtime, around midnight, I'd barely have 10% left.
Since update, same exact usage. It's now 10pm and I still have 62% left. Thats is a HUGE increase in a single update.
Also worth mentionning i'm not the type of person that tries to shut off half the of features of the phone to save battery life. I don't dim the screen, I dont kills apps, leave location settings to full on (gps, wifi, triangulation) I Have a 1000$ smartphone and plan to use it the way it should be.
Anyways, just wanted to share my content. I'm very happy. I cannot wait to see whatelse they have in store for us.
I did not like my S6 edge and I am now extremely happy to be back on the note line. God bless the Note 5
