AMOLED - I have always preferred the more natural colours on IPS displays. A pentile screen at that size at 1080p looks pixelated (Note 3) whereas the iphone 6+ 1080p display looks great - so Samsung had to go Quad HD with pentile in order to match or beat the iPhone - but this also means Battery life at high brightness is gonna be seriously compromised. It almost made me go LG G3 but it has its own battery, skin and overheating issues.


No its using the same new AMOLED display from the TAB S 8.4, diamond pixel, and the colour tests to be much more accurate than LCD now as well. First panel to get over 90% in colour accuracy off the top of my head from displaymate.com testing?

"Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the Galaxy Note 4 is the Best performing Smartphone display that we have ever tested. It matches or breaks new records in Smartphone display performance for: Highest Absolute Color Accuracy, Highest Screen Resolution, Infinite Contrast Ratio, Highest Peak Brightness, Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light, and the smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle. Its Color Management capability provides multiple Color Gamuts – a major advantage that is not currently provided by any of the other leading Smartphones. The Galaxy Note 4 delivers uniformly consistent all around Top Tier display performance: it is the first Smartphone display to ever get all Green (Very Good to Excellent) Ratings in all test and measurement categories (except one Yellow for a Brightness Variation with Average Picture Level) since we started the Display Technology Shoot-Out article Series in 2006, an impressive achievement for a display. The Galaxy Note 4 has again raised the bar for top display performance up by another notch."

But does it still flicker at low brightness like the other amoled? I prefer tableting on my cheap tab3 in low light because of that.

Pretty sure they would have picked up on that. The testing is bloody extensive.

What are fellow Geekzoners intending to do about cases? I've been a fan of Spigen recently, but I am having some trouble finding one for the Note 4 in NZ. What kind are you looking to get, and where from?

motorwayne: I'm interested in what people are using as an in car phone holder? My current model won't fit the N4 device and I had to butcher it to fit the G2.

What's available for the it in the box between the front seat.


Repco they have a good range of universal phone holders now, I have a few of them, in different cars, not had one drop a phone yet, suction cup style. Brand is automedia, basic one is $16.99, can get others with a longer neck, with USB charger & cable for more
Currently have the Note 2, and they expand more than the Note 2 size for sure!

I bought a Spigen Tough Armor (http://www.amazon.com/Spigen%C2%AE-Kick-Stand-Protective-EXTREME-Protection/dp/B00MAWQVZY/ref=sr_1_21?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1413489311&sr=1-21&keywords=spigen+armor). I learnt my lesson after demolishing the screen on my note 2 twice with a cheap case. Have a tempered glass screen protector on its way as well.

Had a chance to play with it? Any initial impressions? Is it your first ? Is the size bothering you?

So I've been over to Noel leeming this morning, they didn't have the Note 4. I was hoping at get my mits on Saturday demo model, but no luck.

Spoke with the manger there, he said they have NO stock and don't when they will, probably not for a while. That the telcos will have it first.

Guessing they've extinguished the preorders and that's it for them for now.

Looks like I will heading to Vodafone tomorrow morning with the masses!
