    I bought a Moto G for my 2nd line. Great phone, love Motorola -

    can't use it much.

    Text and keyboard way too small for my eyes and fingers.

    Note 3 is my minimum default screen now. Don't use MW or Pen Window - too small.

    The Note 4 screen needs to be a little bigger, with better reading and back light control features to tempt me.

    Better signal, wifi and gps hardware are also a must, though I use public wifi less.

    I will probably end up getting one anyway, but not until December, with a slim flip case similar to my current one.

    I don't understand how you can be overwhelmed by something that hasn't been released yet.

    I assume you meant underwhelmed? If so, I totally agree.

    I think the OP was starting a light debate on 'if' the bare specs are all there is, and would it be enough of a leap from the Note 3. Read the first 2 OP posts, undecided.

    I feel the same, not expecting to be wowed, and there will be some disappointments.

    Nice body frame and screen resolution maybe, but no flexible or folding screen etc. It will be another minor leap like the N2 to N3.
    If it will have at least 2 killer software features, as others have said, it will have my blessing.

    This debate is more important to those of us who need to fork out the 700+ and try to get around 300 for the Note 3 (difficult in the UK).

    If I was set for an easy or inexpensive upgrade on an existing plan, and didn't mind the further commitment; or had an inexpensive exchange set up (well done Zmann) - then yes I would be getting excited and will drool over any new features regardless, and will enjoy my first tactile orgasm.

    At least it will be new!

    From what I've seen from the leaks of the Note 4 it's basically a Note 3 with sharp corners! From what I have read of the specs, I see no reason to run out and spend a lot of money for things I wouldn't notice or use. My Note 3 is packed with so many things already, I find something new almost every day!
    I would like to see one but I will probably wait for the Note 5! ✌

    The more I use a Note 3, the more I'm thinking a 5.9 screen would be great.

    .... and speaking of first day pleasures, if I am able to fork out a very-high-spec-pc load of money for one, I want it in a proper high end jewellery box like my GS2.

    The Note 3 box really took the sting out of it.
    I will support the environment NEXT year if I get an exciting box.

    (It didn't help my mailman tried several times to stuff it through a space it wouldn't go!)

    Smartphones are a pretty mature technology now. You're not going to see a big jump in specs from one generation to the next of any existing device until there is a major advance in technology that can be manufactured affordably. Screens may get a little bigger and a notch higher resolution (whether you can see the difference or not), processors will get a little faster. Somewhere down the road we'll get 64 bit processors, but the reality is they won't make much difference in a phone. Battery life will get a little better.

    But until we can get bendable screens, or a new battery technology, or faster wireless networks, all we're going to see is incremental steps. Just like in PC's, and digital cameras, and microwaves, and just about every other mature technology.

    Dude, UV scanner. Think of the possibilities. You may never have to suffer from another sunburn again.

    Verizon edge just makes it too easy to upgrade. Everything the Note 4 has is just a minor update from the Note 3, but as soon as it hits big red I am calling in my edge up and they can have my Note 3. Just the ois 16mega pixal camera is enough for me to upgrade with my shaky hands.

    Only the front-facing camera has an f/1.9 I believe, not the rear facing camera.

    I think the screen will be interesting, however in the presentation, it had a slide saying the 1440p AMOLED display only hits 90% of the Adobe RBG colour space? Not sure if I saw that correctly, and it doesn't make sense to me, seeing as AMOLED displays can easily reach extremely high saturation levels. I must have misread it.

    OIS is a good addition to the camera though. Hopefully it greatly improves low light performance.

    I'm intrigued at this point. I'll wait to see what the reviews are like. It's not a no-brainer in terms of upgrading, but it's also not something I'm ready to just pass on. I'll have to see just how it plays out for folks when they actually start using it... Especially the edge.

    Considering what skin cancer can do to a person, and how oblivious people are to how much is too much sun I think it can be very useful. Just because its cloudy out doesn't mean the UV rays are kicking your arse.
