Retailer Leaks Galaxy Note 4 Specs: QHD Display, 16MP Camera, Snapdragon 805, 4GB of RAM

samsung logo1

If the Galaxy Note 4 is the phone you are waiting for, then it appears as if you will not be disappointed. Thanks to a leak from a European device retailer, the exact specifications for Samsung’s upcoming device have been reportedly leaked, and this thing ain’t no chump. 

From what is listed, the Galaxy Note 4 should in fact come equipped with a 5.7″ QHD display (2560 x 1440), 16MP rear-facing camera, Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM(!), USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD slot, come in 16/32/64GB variants, and run Android 4.4.3 on launch. However, still no word on battery size.

The device is to be announced on September 3 in Berlin, Germany, but Samsung is also hosting a satellite event in NYC which we will be attending. Expect much more Note 4 coverage soon.

If these specs are legit, and the device is launched soon after unveiling, will you be picking one up?

    I’ve had to go back to the top of the page, just to see what this article was about. The comments are definitely hilarious

  • Trevor Clement

    Take my money and call me fanboy.

  • Jason Williamson

    I’m waiting on this beast!

  • NinoBr0wn

    Nope

  • roberthenderson

    The bottom speaker on my Note 3 is horrible for gaming, speakerphone calls, and watching video (3 things that I do quite often). Taking in consideration that I’m not talking about dual speakers, I’m surprised by the idiocy of Samsung engineers in not moving the speaker to the front of a multi-media phablet.

  • FknTwizted

    Too bad this wont make the cut for the stupid vzw beat down we are about to have on the 23rd

  • pat fenis

    No gorilla glass?

  • Pratik Patel

    Why in the world does it need 4 gb of ram when the phone can’t even utilize it? Maybe the Exynos processor can do it but the snapdragons can utilize all 4 gb of ram as it is still a 32-bit processor and you need a 64-bit processor to utilized more than 3gb of ram. So the ram is a gimmick step to me lol. Please explain if I am wrong as I am not bashing anything, just stating my point of view. Apple on the other hand uses a 64-bit processor with 2 gb ram which is not utilizing 64-bit as it needs at least 4 gb of ram to fully utilize the ram and make a faster phone as apple is claiming the 64-bit chip is.

    • I think 32bit can access up to 4GB. It’s the over-4GB that requires 64bit. That’s the way it worked with PCs.

  • JoeTi

    What a beast! Get rid of that physical home button and you have one nice phone/tablet combo.

    • roberthenderson

      I can’t for the life of me figure out why that’s not a 3rd disappearing capacitive button with a nice circular or oval ripple to mark its position.

      • JoeTi

        One more physical location for Verizon to advertise.

  • Disappointed

    Originally bought my note for the bigger screen. Bought the next for a screen that was bigger still. Screen size doesn’t increase on the Note 4??? Definitely OUT. Maybe they will get back on track with the Note 5.

  • Gideon Waxfarb

    This is DEFINITELY the phone I’ve been waiting for. Too bad it’s a phablet, and not a phone.

    Still waiting for an actual phone with these specs.

  • Chris

    I assume they’ve weighted down TouchWiz so that animations still run at 15 FPS or so. If it got too smooth Apple might have to sue them again.

  • Tommy

    I’m definitely satisfied with Note 3. Even I had no idea how useful Sammy has made the s-pen. It’s great

    • jim

      I use the pen everyday of the week

    • jim

      Everyone complains about the button , doesn’t bother me at all , and TW is nothing either , just install Nova and it’s perfect . there is no reason to root anymore really

      • Tommy

        Well, let’s not get silly with the “no root”

        • jim

          I did root mine but that was just because it was just so simple , but even after I rooted , I still have not changed a thing from stock

      • It’s the touch buttons next to the home button that bother me. I accidentally hit those suckers all the time, especially when using the phone horizontally.

  • jim

    That’s the only phone is trade my Note 3 for. Sammy setting the bar high

  • RoadsterHD1

    Can anyone say OVERKILL….

    • JackMeOffski

      Hell no!

    • flosserelli

      Considering Touchwiz is such a resource hog, I’d say no.
      But when/if CM gets ported, this will be an absolute beast.

      • Jeremy Turnley

        Considering they haven’t managed to get the GS5 running it yet, that’s more if than when, sadly.
        I’m happy with my unlocked-out-of-the-box TMo LG G3 for the time being. Nothing but stock rooted ROMs yet, but eventually it’ll get there.

  • So… basically it’s a laptop?

    • JackMeOffski

      and you can bring it to the bathroom with you and watch porn on it while gradma is sleep…

      • PoisonApple31

        Isn’t that why people love the Moto X so much? Touchless controls, so they can just go at themselves.

  • 213ninja

    @droid_life i’m pumped for this phone, but what about this suspect screenshot is credible, lol? i mean, i’m good if you’re good….but…….

  • pyro74boy .

    Regardless of what Bryn Mills [AND ALL HIS OTHER FAKE ACCOUNTS] thinks the Note 4 will be one of best phones of 2014 at the very least. The Note phones always have been.

    • 213ninja

      and most of 2015…..

  • H.R. Pierson

    If kit Kat and Android L are built to run on low/ mid-tier products. Thus Beast should be titled King Kong with the brain of
    Mr A. Einstein. LOL.
    Hey, actually that works for me.

  • 213ninja

    yes, i will.

  • Josh

    16 gbs should not be the starting capacity for any phone especially Samsung phones.

  • rawheat200

    Anyone have any battery specs yet? I had a G3 for a few days and got rid of it because the battery life was just terrible with normal use. I have to imagine the the QHD display probably has a lot to do with this. To give you an idea, I had a G2 and G3…surfing the web for 10 minutes on both devices resulted in a 10% battery decrease on the G3 whereas the G2 resulted in a 1% decrease. During light to normal use, I’d be reaching for my charger around 7PM on the G3 and 11PM on the G2. I’ve always enjoyed the Note series due to it’s big battery and huge screen size. The question is does QHD end up wrecking what I love about the Note in terms of Battery life? In fairness, the Note will have the latest Snapdragon processor, so maybe that will help with battery drain. Guess we’ll have to wait and see…

  • EvanTheGamer

    Is it just me or are the GNs getting smaller now? I was hoping for a 6″ GN. Damnit.

    • 213ninja

      looks like same display size as the note 3, more pixels…

  • Justin

    Picking it up!

  • The Doctor

    Sounds great, but I think I’ll stick with the G3 for now. My last two phones were the Note 2 and Note 3 and I’m kind of tired of that series.

  • crazed_z06

    AND STILL! …

    • 213ninja

      buffer voice?

      • crazed_z06

        Yes indeed…

        Nice to see another Boxing fan here 🙂

        • 213ninja

          no doubt!

  • Jay Ward

    5.7″… Huge disappointment. See what I did there?

    • 213ninja

      Ewww.

    • JackMeOffski

      I feel your pain 🙁

  • Orion

    Doesn’t matter…it still has that awful UI and that damn home button.

  • Natty Bee

    I will likely be purchasing one, but it’s gotta have at least a 3500 mah battery

  • HarvesterX

    Samsung Jank…nuff said. And I betcha my G2 will run circles around it except on gaming benchmarks where instead of 65FPS it’ll get 72FPS. Parade your Note 4’s around doe the whole world to see…. *smh

    Could actually he decent conversation here if not for the Samsung is better than LG and give versa comments. And NO all 4GB RAM be accessed unless utilizing commits that incur performance penalties.

    • 213ninja

      my note 3 flies. i literally have zero lag, ever. it’s so fast my eyeballs can’t keep up with the screen. ain’t no flyin no nothin roun’at son…

  • This is the ultimate commodity phone. If a small Chinese OEM made this phone with a lower price everyone would jump on it.

  • ImmaDroid

    And the crowd goes wild over the Snapdragon 805! Ive heard enough comments about it these past months, and how every phone with the 801 was old news. So hopefully this will keep some people from commenting, unless now its gonna be about the 410..

  • Colts5609

    Great. Another bi-weekly Samsung product launch event.

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Between this, the Moto 360, and Smash Bros. I’m gonna be broke by the end of the year.

  • Bob’s Bilderbergers

    This will more than likely be my next phone. The Note 3 was pretty awesome and I’m looking forward to the new build and features

  • Steven King

    No interest in a flame war, but I don’t see why people still care about Moto OR Samsung. The former hasn’t innovated for years and will soon be a Communist Chinese company. The latter makes phones that cannot be used in foreign regions (e.g. in Europe if one is an American) with a foreign SIM. The only positive thing about Samsung is that it insists on SD cards and removable batteries, and it has dragged others to reintroduce the latter to compete.

    Really, I got a 32 GB Nexus 5 and it has performed admirably. With its unlockable boot loader, it can be tweeked any old way, even without deviating from stock ROM (e.g. via the Xposed framework).

    Yes, a bigger battery is always nice.

    So really, why is this website so focused on Verizon, which disallows the Nexus, and which therefore requires a major outlay on an alternative if one is to keep unlimited data?

    I say all this in disappointment, not to be a jerk.

    • Higher_Ground

      I think some of it is to differentiate from other more android-centric sites, and some of it is just legacy from the original droid days.

      • Steven King

        OK. I see your point. I just find myself other sites more than I used to.

    • 213ninja

      this website is far from focused on verizon and samsung (anymore). it’s t-mobile and motorola or bust around here these days. if you like verizon or samsung you get flamed. HARD.

      i’m not really sure you have a point with people caring about moto and samsung. i mean, it’s cool if you don’t like them, but i’m not sure why you’d question why billions of other people like them….clearly not everyone cares or knows or cares to know about Moto’s move to Lenovo, and billions of mobile users in the US could care less about global SIMs. to each their own, right?

      • Steven King

        In truth, I am no longer a frequent visitor here after the site launched its major push for the Motorola X, a push that seemed largely motivated by an attachment on the part of website biggies to Verizon (hence, for them, no Nexus), and to Motorola, which was manufacturing the X’s in Texas. It seems that my info is a bit out of date.

        I’m just expressing my own opinion here. I used to find this site handy for learning some techie things and making hardware and software decisions. It managed to convey the information in relatively gentle ways. That’s something that cannot be said for XDA developers. So, nowadays, I’m finding this site much less helpful. That billions do not care about the matters that I have mentioned does not mean that this site should not care. After all, billions don’t care about ROMs or the Nexus project.

        Anyway, no flames from me!

        • 213ninja

          you said you “don’t see why people still care about those companies” and listed reasons why we shouldn’t care about them. i was directly addressing your point, that’s why people care…because the things that matter to you may not matter to them. i’m not impying you shouldn’t think about those things or dislike those companies, but even on droid-life there are lots of people that dont care about the moto sell-off and global SIMS (if you couldn’t tell, i’m one of them). actually this time of year is when i like to see them ramp up the samsung coverage because i’m a long time user of the Samsung Note series…and the Note 4 is coming in hot!!

    • skinja

      I am not sure what you mean that they make phones that can’t be used in foreign countries. You can put a local sim card in LTE devices.
      Are you saying the radio bands on the phone don’t match up to those in Europe?

      • Steven King

        I mean there was a region lock on the Note 3. There was a heated controversy regarding whether that meant you just had to turn your phone on in your home region (e.g., North America) upon purchase and then were free to use it elsewhere (e.g. Europe) with a local SIM, OR whether you were bound to your home region regardless. Samsung said one thing, then another, then another. I stopped paying attention finally when I learned that there were also new restrictions on rooting (including a hardware flag that could not be unset after rooting).

  • Dave

    How long until we start hitting the 3ghz mark, anybody?

  • Jordan

    Glad to see the specs don’t confirm a hardware home button.

    • Finire

      The chances of them getting rid of the hardware home button, lay somewhere around the chances of them dumping off the BloatUI they call Touchwiz…

    • skinja

      Would you rather have a capacitive button? Or no button?

      My take is to have buttons on the bezel because you are going to have a bezel anyways. On screen buttons just eat up screen space.

      • PoisonApple31

        On screen buttons can disappear when viewing content. The notification bar is taking up space in most apps.

  • MH

    Cant wait!

  • Finire

    4GB of RAM… Maybe now Touchwiz will not kill the phone, though I still won’t get it because I can’t stand their BloatUI

    • Michael

      You’re super funny…

      • Finire

        I’m just one of those stubborn people that think Google did a good job on the design, and really like to use Stock, or close to Stock Android.

    • HarvesterX

      Android will use as much memory as it can depending on how much RAM IS installed. KitKat can run on 512MB RAM, but if you have 3GB RAM expect Android to use a LOT more.

      Touchwiz is an Android build….Nothing has changed here

  • Dave

    Bryan Mills’ next phone.

    • PoisonApple31

      His ego can’t afford it.

  • Yea baby I can’t wait to get this BEAST. After the Note 4 I will no longer purchase phones outside the Note series

    • 213ninja

      hence, intellectual….

  • Suicide_Note

    Also, assuming this info is true, why would they launch with 4.4.3, and not 4.4.4? Lame.

  • DanSan

    i’d love to get one but the chance of a bootloader unlock on verizon is roughly around -43.3%. not a huge deal breaker as both pro and con the note series is heavily tied to the touchwiz UI.

    still holding onto my “unlocked” bootloader GS4

  • OF

    Oh my. Interest level rising…

  • JEDIMASTERLUIS

    No finger scanner?

    • OF

      This has a blood scanner.

  • Sankyou

    DLNA?!?! Take my money now.

  • shamatuu

    4GB of ram really?

  • JayMars84

    Meh.

    Internal hardware doesn’t impress me anymore. It’s still important, but nowhere near as important as the software side, where Samsung is still awful. Good speakers, good camera, comfort in one hand, and LIGHT or no additions to stock Android gets my money.

    • Sankyou

      So you’re waiting for X+1 and hoping it has a good camera. With you on the most important aspects as well. Replaced my X with a G3 and got used to the size but I wish it was smaller.

      • JayMars84

        Yes, but also waiting to see what they do with the Nexus. I’m hoping the 5.9 inches rumor is just that, a rumor.

  • Wayne Mask

    Just not different enough from the note 3, I can’t justify getting it. Also, it probably has an impossible to unlock bootloader… so frustrating!

    • Dave

      At this point in tech, no phone is going to be monumentally different from its predecessor. We’re kind of pushing the envelope to the max currently.

  • Rob Rowald

    I just want to know if it will be “waterproofed” like the S5

  • mcdonsco

    As much as I absolutely despise touchwiz, I’m likely going to get this phone…large screen, stylus, swappable batteries (combined with samsungs battery system that I cannot believe no one else has copied yet); its just built for my usage…yet, I have a mobile tech addiction and can’t seem to stick with the same phone for longer than 2-3 months tops.

    Argh…will need root/provision free tethering though.

  • jimt

    Samsung does push the spec war to the max. Thank you Samsung. Please make one without the apple button.

  • This or Moto X+1… I’m torn

  • Sirx

    Hahaha NO! Enough of this BS from Samsung–They really just CANNOT think of anything else, can they?! So they hope they can get some subset of [email protected] on board to buy one by pumping more and more numbers into their same-songy device WAAAAYYYYY past the point of utility! 4 GB?! Are you kidding me?! I am glad to see they have lost market share, and they are projected to loose even more marketshare in the quarters to come. Maybe it will help them eventually pull their heads out of their @sses and put some legitimate effort into making their next device.

    • Richard Yarrell

      What kind of silly drugs are you using do they pay you here on Droid-Life or are you just a common hater of course you are.

      • Sirx

        Neither! I see “4 GB” of RAM, and it makes it just so painfully obvious that Samsung does not care about providing a quality device or a quality experience anymore. They are just artifi….ahem…superficially inflating the numbers to…I don’t know, make some headlines or something?! I honestly can’t tell what they’re going for.

        • Mikey Styles

          Hey it’s only a matter of time b4 he’s boot off this site(Android Central) too. He’s a bonafide Sammy Troll

          • Sirx

            Inadvertently fed the troll there, didn’t I. I didn’t realize that until I read through more of the comment thread. Thanks for the heads up!

          • Mikey Styles

            No problem, I frequent about 4-5 sites & he usually does this. AC wasn’t having it & now all of the sudden the guy is here & I’m waiting to see him pop up on Phandroid or Android Police. He’ll get blocked/booted there too eventually.

        • Stang88

          I would hope that 4GB RAM means the phone supports full 64 bit operation. That’s the only way you can use the full 4GB RAM.

          • M3D1T8R

            But it wont. Snap 805 is the last of the 32bit generation. So 4GB doesn’t make much sense, it can only use about 3.2.

          • Stang88

            Putting 4GB RAM in a 32 bit device is “PURE MARKETING” since MOST of the GB above 3 is just “DEAD WEIGHT”.

      • Justtyn Hutcheson

        EDIT: Pretty much everything I wrote was disproven down the thread. Carry on.

        Still not my device but to those who like it, good on them.

  • Suicide_Note

    Anyone else go into carrier stores/Best Buy/etc, tap developer options on the display phones, and enable every option, making the phone virtually unusable for the public/employees?

    • Bryan Mills

      You’re the devil if you do that

      • Suicide_Note

        Join me. I have cookies.

        • Bryan Mills

          Chocolate chip?

          • Suicide_Note

            Chocolate chip, macadamia nut, oatmeal-raisin, and snickerdoodles.

            Bring back to us the report. And may it bring joy to the heart of the most jaded among us.

    • mcdonsco

      My guess is the demo software on boot resets all settings so all they would have to do is restart it.

      • Suicide_Note

        It does, but it’s still hilarious to sit back and watch people try to figure out what’s wrong.

    • Carlos Lopez

      Well now thanks for the idea lol

    • Sankyou

      ^^^^ Now I finally understand why Androids get a bad rap. Pretty damn funny though.

    • DanSan

      I use to change all the wallpapers on the iphones/ipads in the stores to a picture of a sheep. i made myself laugh.

      • Suicide_Note

        And not one of the customers got the joke, I’m sure.

        • DanSan

          Nope. thats why they call them sheep.

      • jboogie1289

        Thanks for the idea!!! I think I’m gonna do this is my CrApple store real soon!!! Bwwwaaa haaaaa haaaa haaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bob G

      And then people complain Android phones are too hard to use 🙁

      • Tommy

        My dad bought a 300 page book on how to use a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. ??? I told him just clear up an hour or two and just press every icon and menu that comes pre installed. It’s not rocket science. I guess coming over from crapple though, he’s baffled. On a serious note though. Apple or Android, or ANY phone today, there is a word or picture or help menu with every icon or app you enter. I just don’t understand how people get lost in these devices…

  • Hugh Hansen

    We can only guess on the battery size now. I’ll go with 3300 mAh.

  • Ryan Chapman

    Doesn’t sound too bad, I hope they just change the form factor and make it look a little better than the S5

  • teebone

    TAKE MY MONEYYYY!!!!!

  • Adrynalyne

    Can’t even fully address 4gb. Is Samsung really that stupid?

    • Bryan Mills

      Yeah, the 805 isn’t even 64bit either

      • Richard Yarrell

        Neither will you’re Nexus 6

        • Bryan Mills

          your*

        • Vanquishgc

          Good lord. First off, your reply to Mills made zero sense, grammatically speaking. And really, how childish can you be? “well, well….. YOUR phone won’t have a 64 bit processor either. So there!” That’s sad, man. It’s a moot point either way. Great, a phone can have a 64 bit processor. So what? If developers don’t utilize what it can do, then having it means jack. All it does is give the manufacturer something to crow about, but in the process it jacks up the price of the phone for no good reason.

      • TheFirstUniverseKing

        Unless I’m reading this wrong, it is a 64bit processor.

        “LPDDR3 800MHz Dual-channel 64-bit (12.8GBps)”

        https://www.qualcomm.com/products/snapdragon/processors/805

        • M3D1T8R

          No. That’s the memory spec.

    • jimt

      Why is that?

      • Adrynalyne

        32 bit CPU.

        (Currently) 32 bit OS.

    • Maximus

      a 32bit system can’t use 4GB of memory?

      • Adrynalyne

        About 3.75 ish

        • jimt

          That is still more than 2

          • Adrynalyne

            It has 3 now, not sure what you are driving at.

          • jimt

            OK 3 plus .75 would require more than 3

          • Richard Yarrell

            He’s not driving anything he’s walking looking stupid as usual.

        • Maximus

          I was mocking you…it can fully utilize that memory space. This isn’t windows…

          • koopadoop

            Shh let them be ignorant and never do their own research.

          • Adrynalyne
          • Maximus

            LOL…this is NOT Windows! Even in Windows you can change the what’s usable in the registry to access all 4GB of memory.

          • Adrynalyne

            It has nothing to do with windows lol.

          • koopadoop

            Sweet article from a blogger who has done lots of architecture research I’m assuming 🙂

            Writing about building PCs is totally the same as researching for Intel or AMD 😛

          • Adrynalyne

            I’m mobile. Do your own research and you will confirm it.

          • Adrynalyne

            It has nothing to do with windows.

        • j

          There are ways around it to address all 4gb in a 32bit system. Albeit, not optimal implementations due to address limitations. Ultimately it typically doesn’t make sense from a speed perspective.

      • Xavier

        Haha this is not windows man!! Its Android (which is base of Linux)

        • Maximus

          I was mocking him…read the other posts in the thread

    • koopadoop

      You should probably look up how much memory can be addressed in a 32bit system before you post.

      • Adrynalyne

        So should you when you can never use a full 4gb.

        • koopadoop

          K whatever you say 🙂

          • Bryan Mills

            Always said by people who don’t know anything ^

          • Adrynalyne

            OK. You do know that not just system ram is taken into consideration for that number, right?

            Tell me more of your findings from DroidLifes comment section and not from facts 🙂

            PAE doesn’t exist at all!

          • Adrynalyne

            Sure…pae…let’s take a performance hit.

        • zepfloyd

          You really need to stop your misinformation crap. The Linux kernel on ARM can address a full 4GB. That is the max. Anything more requires PAE, supported up to 1TB.
          Perhaps you should research or understand the Linux kernel, or look at ARM’s own documentation on the Cortex A15. Both are only a few public clicks away.

    • Sankyou

      Not true. They dedicated an entire gig to proprietary software to ensure that extra half-gig is fully addressable.

      “Krait 450 also adds 36-bit LPAE (Large Physical Address Extensions) to enable memory support above 4GB. This is a similar path to what we saw desktop PCs take years ago, although I’d expect the transition to 64-bit ARMv8 to happen for Qualcomm next year.”

      • Adrynalyne

        I’d rather have 3gb and not take a pae performance hit.

        • koopadoop

        • lulz

          I suspect any performance hit would be insignificant. Either way, you were still wrong. 🙂

            No I wasn’t.

    If only they would dump the physical button. This would be a winner to the max. There is always at least one downer on a phone.

      This along with TouchWiz…

  • FortitudineVincimus

    5.7″ is an obnoxious “phone” size. It’s a tablet that makes phone calls. I could never roll around with one of these and use it to make phone calls.

    • Bryan Mills
    • Kurt Weber

      Okay, you don’t have to. No one said you have to go buy this phone. I personally love the note line.

    • Richard Yarrell

      No but you use that silly Nexus with the four hr battery life then have to plug in three times a day.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        Wrong… I don’t use a Nexus phone. On my rooted Samsung, I can go over a day with no charge.

        On top of that, what does the dimensions of the phone have to do with battery life?

        Your comment was a fail on all levels.

      • Vanquishgc

        You mean the Galaxy Nexus that SAMSUNG made? Besides the Charge, yet another Samsung, that was the worst phone I’ve had. Terrible battery life, god awful reception, etc. So there goes your argument. It’s true, on this site, people like Nexus devices, because of stock Android. But, if the skin, or UI is good enough, most of us are happy with that. Personally, I’ve been using the M8 for a couple months now and have been very happy with it. Sense 6 is a great UI that doesn’t use a crap ton of RAM or battery life, and I can get through the day easily most times on a single charge. HTC hit a home run with that phone while Samsung was content with a double when it came to the S5. But sure Samsung is the greatest EVAR!!!

    • Higher_Ground

      It’s more obnoxious to call something with a <6" screen a tablet…. the standard desktop reciever is 7-8" to begin with so it's not uncomfortable making calls, it's just uncomfortable in your pocket.

    • PoisonApple31

      Because it would make you look stupid with your small girl hands?

  • Ben Murphy

    Go big or go home.

    • Open1Your1Eyes0

      Did they say there will be a 16GB variant also? Wasn’t even the smallest Note 3 32GB?

      • RaptorOO7

        In the US we only got the 32GB but I think Samsung relented for the price sensitive markets with a 16GB version. I just hope they only ship a 32GB or 64GB stateside no more 16GB crap. I mean its what $5 for that extra memory.

        • michael arazan

          Just curious of how much the TW uses in ram and does it leave any left over for me to run apps and games. My GS3 has 2 gb of ram and with all bloat turned off plus other feature of TW turned off and only the UI running it still eats up 850-950 MB, before I start using it

      You can mark this down today this makes that silly knockoff wanna be phablet the Lg G3 so obsolete it’s comical.

      At the end of the day Samsung Galaxy Note products are the GOLD standard of technology today the proven legitimate product.

          It’s pretty sad most Droid-Life heads rotate to crappy Verizon Wireless and useless stock android products

          All for the need of a group discount or price break at the end of the day being cheap gets you the failed Nexus products you buy.

          • Big EZ

            I’ve never owned a Nexus device, but how have they failed? They were meant to be a developer device, not some mainstream success. They have accomplished what they were designed for and more.

          • TechWings

            It seems like you’re a Samsung fanboy, which is fine, and a Nexus hater. But you seem to be forgetting, Samsung made not one, not two, but three devices in the Nexus line.

            And you can bet your bottom dollar that they made submissions to Google to build every Nexus since then.

            So while you believe that Samsung, and more specifically the Note, is the gold standard, even Samsung sees worth in the Nexus line that you define as “failed.”

          • Nasty Nate

            What about my Note 3 that is running stock android with some touchwiz features on Verizon!?!?

      • Sankyou

        I have small hands and I like my G3. I do like the active stylus thing on the Note though.

      • Big EZ

        I went from the Note line to the G3. If Samsung is the standard, then LG meets and EXCEEDS the standard. At least I get great signal in my office. My co-worker drops calls, and often can’t get a data connection. LG or Motorola for me, Samsung was a big disappointment.

      • Vanquishgc

        Mmk….so the G3 sports a slightly slower (very slight) 801 (which when you account for the bloat master that TouchWiz is, it evens out), a QHD display that’s only .2″ smaller than the Note 4, 3 gigs of RAM, which is plenty because LG’s UI doesn’t use as much RAM as TouchWiz does at any given time, a 13 mp camera with laser OIS, and a 3000 mAh battery, which will likely last as long as the Note 4’s, again…..because of TouchWiz’s bloat that constantly slows things down. Also, the G3 is easier to handle, thanks to the best screen to bezel ratio in the business. So please, educate me using FACTS as to why the G3 is now all of a sudden obsolete. And given pricing on contract, I’d much rather spend $99 after rebate on a G3, than $300 on a Note 4 with very similar specs. I can do plenty with that $200 I just saved. Besides, the G3 is meant to compete with the S5, not the Note, you dope…..

        • JohnMiller2013

          After a long paragraph of desperately trying to make the G3’s specs sound comparable to the rumored Note 4 specs, you go on to say that the G3 is NOT meant to compete with the Note? Why bother comparing them then? LOL.

          • Vanquishgc

            On the consumer end, I agree. But I’m guessing LG’s plan wasn’t to go against the Note 3 but rather the S5. Plus it looks as though LG is already working on a model to compete with the Note 4. I’m also looking at this from the standpoint that these are flagship models we’re looking at. Samsung’s is the Galaxy S, HTC has the one series, and LG has the G series. The G2 was poised to compete with the S4 remember? Release date is another factor. If LG wanted to directly compete with the Note 3, they would have released a comparable model sooner. So it’s combination of specs, price point, and release date that are leading to that point.
