    Not happy with the screen size of the Note 4, was hoping a little larger - at least 5.9" screen size.

    So fast charging for the Note 4, does this mean it will charge in an hour or so? My Note 3 takes around 2.5 hours...

    Oh c'mon does .2 inches really make a difference or were you joking?

    OTOH I want Samsung to release a 13.3 Note tablet at a decent price for drawing n stuff...

    Though credit to them, they're keeping up the torrential torrent of tech terrifically...

    Actually was hoping for 6" screen but would have settled for a 5.9" screen. Having used the Note 3 for several months, I'm used to the screen size and hence wanted larger.

    Friend of a friend is using a Huwaei 7" phone/phablet and loves it but I think the CPU in that device is too slow...

    The edge is quirky, and I can see lots of nice features (especially camera controls there). I'm right-handed, but I wonder whether they'll be producing a lefty version of it as well? As it is, it alienates those sinister types!

    That's not a phone. That is not a phablet. That is a tablet with the ability to make phone calls and send SMS.

    I saw a lady on the train the other day with a Sony Z Ultra. She was a bit older and probably bought the phone for its usability but surely for the average user it's just cumbersome.

    That's just my two cents though. I'll store it beside my anger at the fact that 'budget' phones have a minimum of 720p screen, and some higher yet! But 4k full size monitors are so expensive. It's obviously not new tech is it ?! Smaller screens have higher pixel densities and I have had one in my pocket for over a year! But the tech remains outlandishly expensive!

    Don't start me on batteries...

    Yours sincerely,

    A guy having a bad day.

    Very tempting, that screen! But I'm guessing it still has the Knox rubbish and therefore rooting will invalidate the warranty and I'm not quite ready to risk spending £500 on a device to void the warranty on immediately. Also a little unclear about this fast charging - does that just mean 2A like most similar phones, or something more?
    Finally 3000mAh battery? My note 2 has a larger battery with a smaller screen, wish they'd add an extra mm on the thickness for an additional 2% or so battery capacity..

    The Note 4 has a 3220mah Battery the edge the 3000mah. no doubt that wrap around display made it a bit difficult

    Whoops thanks, phones aren't perfect yet :-P

    Edit: looks like QC2 is 60W vs the current QC1 at 10W.. that's quite an improvement over my current one then.. Also means it should take about 10 minutes to go from 5% to 80%. What that does for heat and battery longevity I don't know!

    I'm more interested in the Note Edge. Finally, the Youm screen breaks the silence.
