    Am I wrong the camera doesn't seem as fast or as good in night time as iPhone 6 Plus. Speakers are not as good now (at back.)
    Phone 20 percent heavier but not much increase in battery life. Knox still there and other stuff that just doesn't work or takes up memory e.g smart scroll and most of the S Stuff. Not waterproof. (I know the pluses better screen etc).
    Seriously thinking of defecting to iPhone 6 Plus or wait for the HTC or nexus x. I don't use the pen much
    I was hoping much better battery . Slimmer lighter etc... still annoyed my note 2 has better battery than my note 3 felt samsung lied to me on this.
    Or wait till note 5 now samsung has real competition?

    You are disappointed but yet you would go to the iPhone which has even less features? Seems odd to me.

    Camera seems good in reviews but we haven't seen it yet so nobody can say for sure.

    How does the note 2 have a better battery? Seems odd why that would be the case.

    Better screen
    Better camera
    More premium look
    Better multitasking
    Improved s pen
    Better battery

    So me are key areas. But only you can decide what's best for you

    iPhone isn't water proof and also has a very rubbish battery. Screen is rubbish compared to note 4. I'm jumping from iPhone to the note 4 due to the 6+ just not offering anything

    IF your Note 2 battery lasts longer than the Note 3,it has to be marginal. Most likely it's due to the higher screen resolution.
    Also, how would you know how good or bad the battery life is on the Note 4 until you have one? Don't forget this is pushing about 80% more pixels than the Note 3.
    As far as slimmer and lighter, do you want a well built device or something that bends?
    Personally, I would never consider an iPhone because I just don't like the OS. It sounds like you want someone to talk you out of a Note 4.

    After looking at all your 8 post, It looks like your mind is already made up! Go with the iPhone 6.

    This is funny. Almost all of the OPs post are written like, "iPhone will, why can't Android".
    Move to iPhone.

    Slimmer and lighter is only an advantage to a point, then it's bad. I'd say the iPhone 6+ feels uncomfortable in the hand. My buddy at work got one.

    You seem to be assuming and making stuff up about the rest, since nobody know about battery life, camera performance, etc.. Personally if it doesn't have the Note 4 features (spen, multitasking, etc.) then why buy such a big phone? Movies? Nah, got a TV and even a tablet for that... IPhone 6+ seems like a feeble attempt.

    Yeah, I'm confused. Do you want people to sell you on a not 4? No phone is perfect. Just Choose the one that meets the most of your wants.

    To bring this thread to a more constructive point I would like to mention that I posted disappointed views of the Note 4 when the feature set first came out.
    However, as I read more and more about it my opinions are getting much more positive.
    Despite disappointment in the screen size I now see the Note 4 as a worthy next step in the Note line.
    A lesson about rushing to judgment.

    I checked out the Note 4 and Edge recently. I'm coming from a Note 2 that's still running great. The screen looks a little better, but surprisingly not hugely so.

    One thing to be aware of is the demo software turns auto brightness off, and brightness to max. Just like they do with LCD TVs to get that wow factor when you walk in the door. And it resets every few minutes after you adjust the brightness. Auto to auto vs the Note 2, the 4 still looks better and a little sharper, but the difference wasn't as huge as I expected. If you adjust the brightness to the same level, the difference in displays is really small. I will probably still upgrade with the $200 trade in deal, but without it, I wouldn't upgrade.

    A buddy at work just got an iPhone 6+. It's too thin, too rounded, doesn't feel comfortable in your hand.
    It just feels like you're going to drop it!!
    My buddy says he won't use it till he gets an otterbox!

    Note 3 had excellent battery life and they are saying the Note 4 will be noticeably better. The S5 camera is just a hair behind the 6 Plus in most tests and early reports say the Note 4 camera is better than the S5.

    I too am on the fence between the Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus because I like both Android and iOS equally, but having said that, this does smell of troll. If you didn't like the previous Notes there is nothing revolutionary in this one to change that.

    Also, when the hell did this waterproof thing become a thing at all? I've been using smartphones since 2006 and this S5 I'm using now is literally the first I've ever owned that was waterproof in any way. It wasn't even a factor in my decision to purchase it. I know different people dig different things and that's fine, but it isn't like every phone out there is waterproof so how does a phone not being waterproof count as a negative?

    As another posted pointed out
    Better screen
    Better camera
    More premium look
    Better multitasking
    Improved s pen
    Better battery

    Sure some may feel these improvements don't warrant upgrading from the Note 3, others, like me, find it more than enough to get the Note 4

    I am in similar situation but no defecting to Apple again. Been there done that and no thanks.

    I saw the Note 4 today and then Note 4 Edge. Do not like the Edge at all. I like the Note 4 much better. When I first saw it, I really wanted it. Fortunately, I had to drive about 20 minutes to see the Edge so, I had a chance to think about it. Then the one video that was shown on the Note 4, compelled me to watch one of their demo videos on the Note 3. Did not see much of a difference especially when I adjusted the brightness on both as the demo phones have the brightness cranked all the way up. It was sort of a let down.

    For me, I am like you, I use the stylus here and there. I do not use it that much. Therefore, I am torn as to whether I want to hold a brick or a different phone. Right now, the jury is out on the Note 4, M8, G3 and Moto X. There is a new Droid Turbo that is coming out that has a super display and a fast processor. Stats indicate that it will blow away the S5.

    I also own the Galaxy Gear but, dislike the 80's calculator watch look and being locked into Samsung apps. I recently, purchased a Moto 360 and loved the looks of the watch. My wife who is an apple fan made fun of it and told me it looked like a gas cap on my wrist. At any rate, the Note 3 did not work well with the Moto 360 so, I returned it. I found myself using my phone way more than I did with the Galaxy Gear.

    So in summary, I was not completely wowed with the Note 4. What makes it more interesting, and I know this is a debatable issue, but I am on the Edge program. So, whatever I will get, I am not locked into very long so I can trade devices sooner.

    Okay ... Your WRONG !
    Just reading your "post' it doesn't sound like you know anything about a Note. And that you have never had one/owned or even played/used for some time. They are great phones and have been since day one. As far as the photos are concerned, you can do lots of good edits and such with the Note and if you want to make even MORE changes you go to the Play Store and download lots of photo apps for free or you can buy many for $0.99 !
    Waterproof? Do you go skin-diving? Because that's the only real need to have a "waterproof" phone in the first place, unless you've dropped yours in the toilet or something like that.
    Me ? I've had the Note since it came out , many years ago and I'm getting the Note 4 to replace it. The only problem I have with the Note 4 is that it's not as wide as the original Note. It's slim so dummies can use one hand and text, while driving and kill people.

    I bought my Wife an ipad Air earlier this year(she has an iphone/macbook pro so shes well Apppled!) She took the ipad on holiday recently and had downloaded some tv shows to watch while we were away.When we returned, the new ios 8 was available and becaose she had so much stuff on her ipad shes had to delete/discard/transfer the tv shows,videos and photos she`d taken to create space for this update as the ipad has only 16gb of storage ,actually its just under 13gb after the o/s is taken into account.I smiled smugly and asked as nicely as possible whether she`d like to borrow the 64gb card I had in my Note 3 or the 128gb card from my Note 10.1!......Another reason along with the previusly posted cooments why I would have no hesitation in sticking with my Note 3 or moving to the Note 4 and definately not an iphone.....no expandable storage in this era of high techiness ?NO THANKS
