    Except it gives you the best possible experience on the go. No one is nor can hold a 55inch tv around in their pockets. The N4, and any 1440p phone, gives the graphics fidelity of a uhdtv on a handheld screen. In fact, the N4 has a perfect ratio to either a 55inch or 70+ uhdtv shrunk to handheld.

    There is no convincing needed. The better experience is my 55inch Samsung uhdtv yes, but the more portable and equally enjoyable is my current note and from tomorrow on, the Note 4.

    I guess where we disagree here is the "enjoyability" factor. I personally don't enjoy watching movies by holding a phone close to my face. So when given the option of watching the movie on my phone, or waiting, I just wait until I can see it on my TV.

    That's fine. You're still enjoying "amazing graphics" on a baby-sized screen, whether it be 5in or 6in. The fact is it's NOT a uhdtv. They can shove all the pixels they want in there. It won't make the picture any better than it already is, and won't make the experience any more immersive because the screen is too small for those purposes. Sure, people do it. People play games on their phones, and they watch movies on their phones. And they convince themselves that it doesn't suck, but it does.
    Hey downer relax. You can use the note 4 with virtual reality too when it comes out. Imagine not needing to go to a theatre. Screen is great and Note 4 users will be happy. I'm sure most of us love that we will have the best screen and it feels great on the eyes.

    The enjoyability factor for an hdtv comes from the fact it can go to very big screen sizes, 55inch on average. The Big Picture.

    But the enjoyability for the handheld viewing comes from the facts it is truly portable, and you arent limited or locked to one room/sofa/bed. I have a beautiful, ultra slim Samsung 55inch smart tv, but over 80 percent of the time I use my Note device to view Netflix, Youtube, and movie/media streaming.

    I suppose its a preference, but one would be lying if they say a portable device isnt enjoyable, especially when it looks as good as the N4.

    Arguing about enjoyability is like arguing about whether or not something tastes good.. It's pointless. Everyone has different likes and dislikes.

    This.

    Also, as vinnyvin mentioned virtual reality, the Note 4 is a dual purpose device.

    I had the opportunity to try out the Samsung VR headset. Since the Note 4 is what powers it, it's screen is VERY important. I took special notice at the pixels because of how close the screen is to the eyes, & yes I could see them. It wasn't bad, but noticeable.

    So if a screen with a pixel density of over 500 looks like that, just imagine how it would look with a (much) lower density.

    If consumer VR becomes mainstream & continues to be powered by smartphones, I could see 4k screens being put in them to enhance the VR experience.

    I see no reason why VR headsets would be powered by smartphones. VR is really a home experience, and there is more powerful hardware at home that would produce better results.

    I think people are looking for a single device that can do everything and be everything. Such devices don't exist, and even if they did, there is no way to get a perfect implementation of every circumstance. Dedicated devices do it better.

    That's really the crux of what I was getting at before. HDTVs are for watching movies and TV shows. Computers and gaming consoles are for gaming. Smartphones are supposed to be designed for phone calls, texting, light browsing, GPS, etc. all while being portable.

    Obviously you're choosing to ignore itsnotmeitsyou's comment, which I was agreeing with. The rest was just another point of view that I wanted to share, which you seem to have a problem with.

    Everything in your last post is your opinion, which you have a right to. Please don't tell me (or anyone else) that their's are wrong.

    I come here to get & share information, not to argue. If you want to continue in this manner, please leave me out of it & ignore my posts.

    There is no reason to be so sensitive. Yes, everything I said in my comments is my opinion. That's how it generally works. And other people were expressing their opinions. I never told anyone that they were "wrong". I was simply emphasizing my perspective on things. This is a forum, where people converse. I certainly don't consider that to be an argument. You didn't see me get upset when Vinnyvin called me a "downer"; after all, he may be right! And who knows? Maybe someone has an argument that could convince me that all this time, I've been wrong about large phones, and QHD screens.

    I could come on here and say, "NOTE 4 IS THE BEST! I can't wait! [drool, drool, drool]." But there's plenty of that already, so there's no need for me to do that.
