    Nexus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – phablet compar…:
    Good video. Now seeing the video the nexus is not bad at all. I think the battery life would be better on the nexus device because it's pure Android. Touchwiz has alot of stuff running in the background. I just might invest in one. First time I'm excited about a nexus device.

    That Nexus is a bit wide. May be uncomfortable to hold.

    Frankly I am glad they released Nexus 6 the way it is with the bigger display and all. It means for Android L and future Android editions (and future apps too) there will be nice features and UI/design changes geared towards bigger displays. And the Note 4 stands to receive benefit from all of these upcoming changes. Also with the increasing popularity of the Note line (and larger display phones by proxy), it means better support and new apps for writing/drawing features. I feel the new phones with larger displays will be a gateway eventually leading to the Note line for many that will allow people to experience the utility of using a device with a larger display.

    I may get a Nexus 6 if my Note 4 doesn't show up soon!

    My challenge with it is the OEM, and what they'll do to the Amoles panel. My guess is it'll end up just like the Moto X and X2...another Samsung factory panel with cranked contrast and blown out colors with no way to adjust it (a LA Samsung's chooser)...no bueno...

    I won't be swapping my Note 4 for anything. I have made that mistake numerous times in the past with my Note 1,2, and 3. I have finally learned my lesson. The Note is the best option for me.

    Supposedly 6" screen, except the large chunk was eaten by the captive buttons on the bottom. lol
    The battery in this is the same size as the Note 4's battery and Android L is supposed to improve battery life by upwards of 30% due to better overall power management. Tmo also confirmed an OTA update allowing WiFi calling in early 2015.

    don't "think" here, wait for reviews and screenshot of battery life.

    That is true, I didn't even think of that. So the usable screen is probably the same as the Note 4 but in a larger casing.

    The capacitive buttons only show up some of the time so they are not always using up screen space. I currently have a Note 4 pre ordered at Best Buy and like the idea of the S-Pen, but I like stock android so I'm torn. I also love my Moto X, the call quality and reception are amazing, better than my Note 3 was. I wish I could add the S-Pen and multi window function to the N6.

    Now that's interesting. If this photo is an accurate representation then the usable screen size of the Note is larger. Very interesting.

    Naa the pics show more with the nexus 6. If you look at the bottom about 2 - 4 centimeters of the bottom bezel is there so shouldn't the nexus 6 have more space?

    If you look at where the bottom line is drawn just above the onscreen buttons on the Nexus, you can see that it actually cuts into the usable screen of the Note 4 and then the tops are even. That means that there is more usable space on the Note 4.

    Yes but if the top is even that would only mean a 2-3 centimeter difference and up to personal preference of on screen or physical buttons

    Yes, but those looking for a much larger screen aren't really getting that. But yes, if you prefer onscreen buttons, you would want to go for the Nexus 6.

    I left a Note device once (Note 3) thinking I would like something else better.. I am not making that mistake again
    I just don't have what it takes to make a switch to something else. I'm so loyal to android it doesn't even bother me when apple come out with new phones.

    girls love tech too

    What in Touchwiz is running in the background that effects battery life? Please post screenshots of the Touchwiz app/feature effecting battery life.

    Maybe some people just want a larger phone screen and have no need for stylus features. The Nexus 6 is just another alternative rather than a direct note competitor.

    While I initially got the note 3 because of the bigger screen I think I'll prefer the note 4 over nexus 6 because of all the multitasking I use with the Samsung devices. Even when I had the nexus 5 I sort of missed multi window which I had on my old s4

    I was thinking of cancelling my verizon note 4 preorder to get the nexus 6 but now it looks like there will be no notification light and I really prefer the notification light over the moto x style active display notification because it is easier to see from a distance.

    I would have to disagree with battery life getting worse with every version. I just went from my Note 3 to my Note 4 and my battery life has dramatically improved. It doesn't seem to chug battery as bad as my Note 3.

    respectfully, the difference between note 3 and 4 are not software alone, and its not entirely google's software neither.

    Understandable but you were strictly talking about software and how it always gets worse .. When I have had the same software on both phones and seen a dramatic difference. Of course hardware helps .. But if software is programmed horrible I don't care if you have the best hardware .. It will still run bad.

    With a nexus, you can root and get rid of the buttons in favor of something like pie controls, so you can maximize the whole screen.

    But, by default, it is interesting to see the note 4 with the extra space for writing.

    Thanks for the pic.

    I just wish att note 4 had a root solution....
