I'm not hyped because I'm waiting for the 4k Note 5 to break my mobile V card.

Yes 21 never owned a mobile I never wanted or needed one. I'm really only getting this because my first and only smart devicewhich I was given as a gift a Asus Memopad HD7 is starting to show it's age when it comes to the RAM.

What is really the difference between the S series and Note series. Is it pretty much that if you want a bigger screen go for the Note.

I don't really see the point in the S series from last I checked it cost the same as the Note but the specs are only slightly better than the Note that came out 6 months ago and shit compared to the one that will come out. IE 1440p vs 2160p

It'll be interesting to see how energy efficient the 14nm Exynos chip is. I can't get hyped about a device unless it has a removable battery however.

2016 needs to get here so we can have second gen 14nm A72 based chips flood the market. An ODROID powered by one of those would be fucking insane.

>>46702919
The S5 was an outdated on arrival piece of ugly shit. The design was just plain backwards. The S6 really seems something worth waiting for.

>>46703004
I'm eager to see as well. Seeing it scored over 60k on Antutu I want to know how hot it runs. I'm guessing the battery isn't removable this time around but that isn't a dealbreaker for me. I hope it's at least easily serviceable.

>>
>>46702975
Notes are the plus size versions of the current S flagship. It's released later so it could have newer tech, and it's bigger so they can fit more specs into it. The bigger screen size is a given. Good choice, the Note 5 most likely hold the title of best phablet for a very long time.

>>46703109
I meant that when the S5 came out it wasn't the best specced phone on the market, which isn't what Samsung usually does with its flagship. And it was ugly.

Thing is, for its price range, it still is the best specc'd phone right now.

Any other with same specs is at least $100 above, and none within the price range and specs has waterproofing, which is actually useful, unlike cosmetic design, which is completely irrelevant with any case on any phone. Not to mention the best screen of all phones.

>>
>>46703131
Yeah. Unless I drop it I imagine I could even get several years out of it. I would think 4GB of RAM will be enough for a while right? the CPU will be more than enough I don't even play games on this or use any apps that are CPU intensive. The storage should be enough until 4k pirating becomes mainstream and even then I could think about multiple SD cards. The screen is AMOLED God tire screen which I imagine won't be outshined for a while. And 4k resolution, sure some 5k screens may come out but at this point going higher than 4k gives significant diminishing returns so unless it's 8k I don't see myself purposely upgrading just for that, and even then it would be unlikely just to be for that reason.

The camera is more than enough I'm not a fucking photographer.

The only thing likely to make me upgrade before the RAM makes it unusable is real innovation like a folding tablet/phone like the one Samsung showed in a fake trailer.

So. They modified the software of the Note 4 to work as a VR headset and from what little I have heard it isn't bad. I'm betting they are going to design the Note 5 for it this time. Who can't wait to use a 4k AMOLED VR headset? Ideally I would still want it to be serious, something that can be hooked up to a PC and that runs as well as oculus. Obviously for now 90 fps 4k is out of the question at ultra but when the 390x and later generation cards come out it will be feasible to play it at that or with some settings down, Leaked benchmarks put it at being 40% more powerful than the 980 which is hardly surprising considering the 290 and 290x perform as well as the 970 and 980 after the latest driver updates.

On the most demanding games two 980s in SLI should get about 50 to 55 fps in most games at 4k so the 390x should get at least 70, possibly more because AMD is better at 4k and all the benchmarks I have seen are in 1440p.

Nope.
15% area scaling advantage over 20nm. Its not like TSMC's transitional 16nm FinFET node.
Familiarize yourself with ASML definitions.
>>
>>46704608
The reason why it's called 14nm is because FinFet has the practical effect of a second die shrink. That's why everyone wants it and decided it was a good idea despite the fact that it's been a big expensive mess for everyone.

In any case, you find the gate pitch comparisons between Samsung's 14nm and Intel's. Intel has a decent advantage because their FF research is more mature but they're close enough to be considered in the same class (within 10nm IIRC)

Its called a FinFET process, because it uses FinFETs. The gating surface area is a 3D raised structure rather than a planar one.

You killed Samsung Mobile, and now look at what you've wrought. Apple selling 75 million phones in 3 months. You stupid fucks, well I hope you're happy that you picked your own little side, because now everyone will lose the high end phone market.

We'll get a bunch of shitty phones meant for starving Indians, and we'll deserve it for having abandoned our one true hope against Apple, Samsung. You stupid fucks, all of you /g/.

Samsung had to take some cues from the Apple playbook because hey, it happens to work. But Samsung never lost its identity. Who else still offers you MicroSD slots and digitizer pens?
>>
>>46704960

>And all of them combined can't equal even a 1/10th of what Apple is

You mean in terms of revenue? Or do you mean profit? Or do you mean sales? I'm not sure what you're getting at, but just because Apple likes to hoard its money doesn't mean that they'll be able to put magic in their smartphones that other companies cant. Apple produces their shit in the same Chinese factories as every other OEM.

>Samsung had to take some cues from the Apple playbook because hey, it happens to work

So cues like offering the same thing every year with minor improvements, planned obsolescence, and making everything dumb for a dumb populace?

>MicroSD slots and digitizer pens

While I miss having a MicroSD slot, I don't really need it anymore. I certainly wouldn't use a digitizer pen either, because my phone isn't the size of a jumbotron at the local ballpark, unlike the Note.

You can easily disable TouchJizz with ROMS

Design is useless with cases

UI is the same with ROMS

Unless you live in the jungle and/or are a lifesaver who somehow always forgets to leave his phone behind you will never need the higher water resistance.

And the Z3 costs $60 more than S5, will cost more with the price reduction due to the S6 coming in.

Battery's your win, but I've had an iPhone for the longest time so I'm pretty used to charging it twice a day, galaxy once.

RAM is pretty useless for phones. Useful for phablets, though.

And screen is 5.1 vs 5.2 inches, but the S5's is the best screen of all current phones as rated by over 5 different sites.

Samsung is trying to copy Apple in the Android atmosphere and not make it about owning an Android device but owning a Samsung device. I could go on about the stupid bullsiht they do (touchwiz, propietary driver blobs and unhelpful to open source community, locked bootloaders on carrier phones, etc.)...
They water down their devices in the states often with weaker hardware.

You also have the fact that /g/ is pro-openness (with the shit in Samsung ROMs, they aren't) and also usually very price conscious. You have the Motorola /g/ and OPO occupying nice value conscious spots, and then Samsung devices for far more. Samsung has done nothing substantial to buck the carrier system. Meanwhile, competitors are offering similar hardware for a substantially lower price

>>46705424
RAM matters for phones, at least to a degree. 1GB on the iPhone 5S is fucking horrible to multitask with. I would agree that the difference between 3GB and 4GB at this point in time on Android is really minimal or can be ignored.

Why the fuck would I care about the market cap of a consumer electronics company I buy from, unless there was a sign they were absolutely financially unstable and wouldn't be around to support my device?

Apple making shitloads of money off their shit is irrelevant for me. I care about the best device for my needs and the value that device offers.

If you compared 4.4 with ART to iOS 7/8, a lot of apps run slower on an iPhone vs. Android. At least on the 5S, because of the anemic amount of RAM it has.

>If you compared 4.4 with ART to iOS 7/8, a lot of apps run slower on an iPhone vs. Android. At least on the 5S, because of the anemic amount of RAM it has.
You provably have no clue.

The RAM amount is the *last* thing to affect lagginess.
It's well known that low RAM cannot slow down iPhones, cause iOS doesn't use paging, for this exact reason.

An app will either run smooth, or crash, there's no half state.
>>
>>46705697
So?
More power to them.

Why didn't Samsung buy the second best?
Or develop the best one in house?

Or at least have the decency to not put a terrible half-baked feature in their phones, let alone advertise the shit out of it?
>>
>>46705708
>An app will either run smooth, or crash, there's no half state.
Now you're legit talking bullshit, at least in iOS.

I had a 4S with forced iOS 8 that ran almost every app slow as fuck. Virtually zero crashes, but every app, especially when typing, ran laggy as all fuck
>>
>>46705708
No, iOS unloads apps out of memory to keep everything going. Which means when I have more than 3 apps going, the older apps start getting unloaded. They remain in the tray for multitasking, but selecting them just shows the PNG snapshot iOS took when I switched out of the app.

Then the app is started fresh while the interface is entirely static for five seconds. If I'm lucky it'll return to the same state within the app, but usually it just goes to the home screen. Or in the case of safari, reload of the entire tab, losing all typed information.
>>
I'm more hyped for the Lenovo P70 max which has a fucking 5000mAh battery.
>>
>>46705750
That's the processor, not the ram.

iOS has no swap/paging, ram can't slow down anything at all.

When you hit the ram limit, the app crashes, it doesn't slow down.

I had a 4 with iOS7 and it was slow, but it was the processor and the GPU, not the ram, to blame.
>>
>>46705774

This happens at least twice a year, how is this news?
>>
>>46705826
What it effectively means for the end-user is that open apps don't slow down, but the aggressive memory management combined with anemic amount of RAM in Apple phones (1GB in the 5S, when Android phones at that time at similar prices were shipping with 3-4GB) leaves the user with a multitasking experience that leads to you "switching apps" and really loading the app from scratch, with lengthy wait times ensuing.
>>
>>46705877
I tried but I can't understand how you can use such big phones. I tried a Lumia 1520. I tried a OPO and those were just too big for me. I like to use the phone with one hand and that's why I still have my Moto X even though it gets slower with each passing day.
>>
>>46705933
I agree with you, but I'm in favour of the strict policing.

In practice, that rarely happens with apps.
It would take switching between like 3 heavy games for that to happen.

The usual switching that happens between browser/phone/(facebook/twatter) and other similar apps, almost never causes a reload.

A more probable scenario is Safari reloading heavy pages, when there are more than 3 of them, which isn't that unusual.
>>
>>46705978
The size gets to be an issue at times, specially when running, but all the other upsides of android over iOS, plus the shit only samsung and maybe htc bothers with, the IR blaster for instance, makes all the difference to me.
>>
>>46706011
I own an iPhone 5S as a work cell phone and a OnePlus as a personal cell phone and I don't game on my work cell phone, yet I get apps shifting in/out of memory. Safari is the worst offender, but really any browser since Apple doesn't permit alternate rendering engines.

>>46702491

>>
>>46707389
>Why do you hate having an extra battery that is always juiced up when you need it?
Because double batteries are here practically.

And I say this, while having relied on switchable batteries for laptops, when the battery life was ~2 hours, a fraction of what today's smartphones get.


First of all, a second, charged battery is not something you "just have with you", ready to swap.
It requires effort, time and planning.

Charging 2 batteries requires twice the time.
No, you can't charge them at the same time, since you have one phone and one charger.
You charge your phone, wait until it's done, swap the batteries, and charge again.

That's a solid 4 hours.
No, you can't do it at night, since it requires swapping the batteries at the middle of the procedure.
Unless you enjoy waking up in the middle of the night to swap them.

Also, a second battery, aside from the extra cost, is also extra bulk. You can't have it in your wallet, and in your pocket it will feel awkward, since you already have a rectangular thing, your phone, in it.

Everybody that I know, myself included, that has had 2 batteries, never used them in anything, apart from camping trips and such.
It's simply a pain in the ass.

And to think that people still sacrifice bulk, structural integrity and battery life to accommodate a mechanism for switching batteries, is insane.
>>
>>46707537
>Because double batteries are nightmare practically.
fix
>>
>>46707389
With the physical buttons gone, the screen can instead be made 10% larger and let the OS remove the software buttons when they're not needed, like when movie playback.

Replaceable battery always with no exceptions equal flimsier build quality because you need to have removable back. proof: entire samsung galaxy product line.
