    Would you mind sharing some pictures from the plus ? (not kid pics, but just to get some idea of real life use)
    This is not an example of a nice pic or anything, only an example of very low light results. There were some overhead lights in my dining room, and I turned them down very dim. Then I made this tree decoration swing back and forth to see if it would blur. The 6+ did very well considering the lousy lighting and motion. The Note 4 would have been a green blur. To be fair, I've included a third photo that did blur a little.

    Hey Ticojpunk, how are you feeling about the iPhone after a few weeks? I still love the note, and have some camera tweaks, but I'm not sure if it's enough. verizon will let me. Exchange through 1/15 since I bought in December, so, I'm still considering the switch.

    To everyone that for some odd reason wish to try to get a picture of a moving object without flash in low light, simply lower your resolution to that of the iphone, turn off HDR and use the Sports Mode and you have the quality and motion capture of the iphone.
    However with the iphone you do not have the option of raising the resolution and taking better pictures and videos that you do with the Note 4.
    and that is just the camera.
    The rest of the phone is better also.

    There is really no comparison between the two.

    Does that'd actually change the speed of the image capture though? That is impacted by the lens etc.

    You can manually change the ISO up to 800 and increase the exposure, you can use Sports Mode, you can press and hold focus on auto which will adjust exposure to that spot automatically.
    You can use Burst shot.
    Can download 3rd party apps although best option for that will be once we get lollipop 5.0 in a month or so, once we get 5.0 we will be able to up the ISO much higher.
    But basically getting zero motion blur while in very low light is a tough thing to accomplish with even a DSLR camera.
    There are trade offs no matter how you look at it.
    Myself I prefer the trade off of being able to capture very high quality 16M pictures vs an ever so slightly less motion blur in low light.

    I have a feeling that with 5.0 Lollipop and a App like Camera FV-5 the Note 4 will also surpass the iphone 6 even in that one very narrow area.

    I'm loving the iPhone. I'm not so enamored that I'd never go back to Android, but I've never been loyal to either.

    The camera is everything is hoped for on the iPhone 6, so I'm a happy camper. No regrets.

    This is off topic, What has better battery life for you 6+ or note 4?
    I have a 6+ and i love the battery life but i miss my note 3.
    As dpham said the 6+ does take more consistent pictures without blur than the Note 4 but ... Remember nothing is 100 percent. In great light and without much movement it can take great shots. Lots of reviews don't take shots of their kids .. Rather lighting with various still pictures.

    I've a 6+ and a Note 4 and I can say the 6+ helps to eliminate blur on some of the photos I've taken (I snapped them and went "oh god they moved" then looked and the picture was without blur) but in some settings I have managed to get a blurry pic or two ... Not as often as my Note 4 ... But it has happened.

    For me the 6 Plus had a little better battery life than the Note 4. I remember being pretty underwhelmed with the Note 4 vs the hype. The 6 Plus on the other hand held up to the hype much better. I should also add I only had the 6 Plus for a little under a week, so the battery life may have improved over time.

    So regarding the low light situation. Every camera is different and every lens is different. It is simply a matter of looking at what the camera is capable of and supplying whatever it takes to get a good exposure. In low light below a certain threshold the Note 4 must have more light or a slower moving subject. It is simply how exposures work. I have an external strobe for underwater photography I will try tomorrow. It is triggered by an external light like another flash, when the strobe sees the wimpy led flash from the Note 4 it will rip loose with xenon flash to supliment the lighting. We shall see how it works.

    I'm hoping that lollipop improves the camera. Every year from note 1, 2, 3 and now 4.i think about going to the iPhone . but I always liked a big screen I'm hoping Samsung improves the moving object camera experience.

    We know Lollypop will improve the camera, it will give us raw images.

    You do realise of course that you can carry as many batteries as you wish with the Note 4 and change them out in like 1 minute flat right?
    I mean literally the Note 4 could last indefinitely.
    So no matter what the Note 4 beats the iphone in power options.

    Battery Life: Smaller screen, lower res on the 6+. It SHOULD have better battery life.

    Hype: There was nothing to hype on the 6+ aside from bigger screen, of course it could easily live up to it. People hype the Note series because it offers new features each iteration. I still think it lived up to the hype I heard, with the exception of low light camera shots. If that was the deal breaker, I would have bought a DSLR.

    I appreciate the feedback and love to hear opinions others have. Hopefully I don't offend anyone by what I said. That's just MY opinion as you all have yours.

    I just got my Note 4 a week ago. Been a long time Iphone user and was bored with it so I switched. Along with my phone getting really hot issue when charged, I too am having this camera issue. Not so much with the iPhone. I have a 2 year old, 4 year old and 6 year old. Pictures are important especially to send to grandparents. However I can't get a good shot. Kids are naturally in constant motion. Impossible to say stay still for more then 2 seconds. I heard so much about this camera and how it's 16MP and the vibrant colors. Well does you no good when 9/10 shots I take are blurry. Frustrating!! I love this phone for its endless functionality and customization but come on!! I have kids Samsung!!! Gramps wants pics don't you get it!!! LOL

    Did you switch to an iPhone as well?

    I have been using the note 4 for a few weeks and after all the camera hype I am definitely disappointed. I have an iPhone 6 plus coming today to try out. Never used an iPhone and have had android since January 2010 so feeling a little gross about it. Lol. Anyway gonna give it a go and see which works best for me I guess! My z2 took better shots than the note does, I just got sick of using that phone. We shall see.

    It sounds like having both a Note 4 and iPhone 6/6+ is the best solution, albeit, not an economical one.

    Are you guys taking the protective film off of the back camera? there is a hold in the center, but the blurry edges sounds like the film is still on the camera..

    The only lighting in this pic is from the surrounding Christmas lights. Not bad considering the bouncing monkey subjects.

    I have zerolemon, 2-3 days normal usage, about a month on energy save mode, then change the battery.
