Kopkiwi: Rumored 3000mAH battery. Goodbye Note series.


You know, for a great overall package I could live with no SD, even if I wasn't happy about it, and I could live with no removable battery too, providing the indwelling battery was of sufficient capacity. Taking both of those away, and putting a 3000mA battery in there? That, for me, is definitely a couple of steps too far.

Really hoping that some of that doesn't pan out, but as you say, reasonable sources for recent leaks.

Looks like LG G4 Pro might be the one for me this time around.

If the rumored LG G4 rumors are true that's going to be an absolute beast

I suspect this event will herald the new round smartwatch from Samsung. Running Tizen with rotating bezel.

Post on Android guys about where the Note is going. http://www.androidguys.com/2015/08/12/samsung-this-is-the-note-5-we-wanted/

Some I agree with, some I dont (clock, speakers on the front for example) but overall I tend to agree.

Agree with most of that article. Samsung have REALLY dropped the ball with the Note 5. I will not be purchasing it, will be moving to the Moto X or new Nexus if it's camera and battery are any good

The more I read, the less I'm tempted. If the rumours pan out, I won't be buying one. Very disappointing. Adding to the mix how slow Samsung are at releasing updates/security patches (especially when coupled with delays when carriers are involved), I'm not sure I'll buy another Samsung device at all. A flagship device should be fully supported, including prompt updates, for at least two years.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Note 4 was pretty much left alone straight out of the gates. The updates have been disgusting.
