Note 5.png
757KB, 800x836px
Hey /g/;

I'm really considering switching to the Note 5. I have owned every single iPhone since the 2g came out back in 2008. I have had the 5s for around 2 years now and I'm really sick of it. Both the price/utility and the actual usefulness of the phone sucked. Is the note 5 worth it? Any technical problems in software/hardware I should be weary of?

samsung phones are ricer shit with proprietary buggy insecure garbage ROMs
only black people and asians dressed in basketball-american streetwear use samsung
if you want to try android get an actual nexus phone. it's a cleaner, more stable, and more secure product all around
buying a samshit phone because you want to try the android experience is like getting a fiero with a ferrari body kit because you want to try an italian sports car. just why.
>>
Samsung Galaxy is literally the most lag-extensive, bloatware packed, locked down overpriced shit which will blast out all atrocities which are possible in Android onto your first impressions of the mobile platform in general and as a whole. I'd preferably recommend something from Motorola, HTC, LG, or the like for which the benefits and advantages of Android are truly applicable.
>>
Not worth it.

Get the z3/z5 instead, for that amazing battery life.

Samsung is shit.
>>
Samsung phones are actually a lot nicer than /g/ makes them out to be. They usually copy apple so you can expect a lot of similarities between it and your previous iPhone and their more recent phones aren't laggy in any sense.

I recommend going to your local carrier and trying out various Android phones and see which one you like.
>>
>>51539474
What's your argument for something that absolutely strips out all actual benefits of Android and tries to
>copy apple
therefore being just an inferior knockoff worse than an iPhone?
>>
>>51541386
To be fair not like the nexus has replaceable battery or micro SD card slot so even Google's own phone fails to be a good Android device by your standards. Touch wiz is improved and even then you can always replace the launcher.

And yes actually keeping up with the competition is a good thing it means it actually has features that could be useful to op.
>>
>>51537789
switch to note 4 nigger, not 5. WTF are you thinking about=?
>>
>>51541386
>strips out all actual benefits of Android
such as?

What features do they remove that stock android has?

If anything touchwizz has more features than stock android, you just call it bloat because they are features you dont want/need.
>>
>>51543915
It's like a year behind on security updates by design
Not the guy you're responding to
>>
>>51543937
Eh? We were talking about the note5, the phone that came out in August, and has had 3 OTA updates since it's launch, 2 of which were specifically security updates.
>>
>>51543260
Note4 is still good, but if he personally doesnt use an mSD card, and doesn't use removable batteries. Then the Note4's only advantage is price as the Note5 is a decent bit more powerful.
>>
>touchwizz
>>
>>51543915
it's huge, eating away at your storage, the screen is extremely oversaturated, their in-house RAM manager is absolute garbage.
the bloat also eats your battery, and despite having insane hardware, stutters, gets hot, and struggles to get 4 hours SOT.
Samsung can't write software for shit.
Meanwhile, my nexus enjoys 2/+ days per charge. Cost half as much, underclocked and parked half the cores (same speed and core count as Apple's 6), and yet it never stutters or hand, unlike samshit.

These. Samsung is meme tier. Nexus or bust.
>>
>>51544019
Of course it has updates
The problem is that nexus phones got those updates 12 months prior
>>
>>51544717
>stutters, gets hot, and struggles to get 4 hours SOT.
oh please, you are so full of shit it's funny. Seriously you have obviously never even held a note5 if you actually believe this is true.


>>51544966
Except it wasn't 12 months late, they were the stage fright fixes that were released before other manufacturers, hell there are still manufacturers who haven't updated for the stagefright fixes.

Show me some proof that smasung is on average 12 months behind and i'll shut up. However I actually own the phone and i'm the one getting the updates.
>>
>>51544717
>struggles to get 4 hours SOT
also, 4 hour SOT with 25% left. Fuck off with your memes.
>>
>>51537789
Don't listen to these faggots. The note 5 is God tier. No lag and I do a lot of intense shit on my phone. Multitasking is flawless. I've literally had five pages open at once all on the screen with no interuption, but I only did it to see what it was like. The battery last me all day long on a full charge, and even if I'm dicking around on YouTube, I can fast charge the bitch back up in no time. Bloat ware is no problem since you can disable anything. There's nothing wrong with this phone, just like the iphone. Anyone talking about battery issues and lag literally just listen to people who talk and make memes and don't own or ever held a note 5.
>>
>>51544717
>stutters, gets hot,
Ah yes, you mean compared to Snapdragon?

Sorry but if ANYONE gets shit the generation for a SoC running hot, it isn't samsung.
The Exynos 7420 is the clear SoC of choice in 2015, the only problem is samsung doesn't sell it to anyone else (besides Meizu).

Exynos 7420 was built on a 14nm LPE process.

SD808 and SD810 were built on a 20nm HPm process.

If you aren't sure how microarchitectures work, here is a quick run-down.

The smaller the process node, the less power is required for the same performance. Less power means less heat, less heat means less thermal throttling.

Exynos 7420 beats SD810 simply because samsung has a better fabrication facility, they can fab. at 14nm while SD810 is stuck on a 20nm process. This INHERENTLY makes snapdragon hotter, slower, and use more power.

For you to claim the Exynos 7420 stutters and gets hot is just you being a retard. Or you simply have no idea what you're talking about and you're repeating only what you've heard from others.

Next time do your own research.
>>
>>51544717
Which Nexus?
Cause it sounds like it's a quad, which means it's likely an N6/N5/N4?
So if it's an N4 or an N5, I call bullshit on charge time, and if you're getting that then it's cause you are probably using it very sparingly and always in a full signal zone.
Speed and count as the iPhone 6? You do realize that there are architectural differences as well as OS optimization differences at play here and that comparison means nothing, right?

So lemme see here, you have rooted your Nexus so you can run software to optimize your hardware, you might even have installed a custom ROM too, which invalidates the comparison since it's not stock vs stock. If you were to do such things with the S6 or Note 5 you would likely see equal or greater gains while maintaining a very smooth user experience.

Stock Note 5 vs Stock N6 is no contest, the Note 5 takes every point.
>>
>>51545390


My N4 can last 2 days easy and that fully stock latest android not sure were the bad battery thing came from
>>
desu if you're not getting a note4/5 then you should go with a nexus or LG android phone senpai
>>
>>51545033
4 hours of touchwiz? Absolutely disgusting. No one should be burdened with even an hour of touchjizz.
>>
>>51547069
Keep memeing buddy, maybe the touchjizz meme will be true again someday and what you're saying wont just be total bullshit.

As it stands at the moment however with touchwizz on S6/Note5, you're just looking pretty retarded, and it's obvious you've not used a newer samsung device.

Keep riding up on that bandwagon though, im sure you'll hop down on your own eventually.
>>
>>51547097
someone (possibly you) posted a screenshot showing how disgusting touchwiz still is. If anything is a meme, it's this "touchwiz is really good now guys I swear!" meme samshills are pushing.
>>
>>51537789
Don't listen to the mindless uninformed Samsung hating of /g/ the note 4 and 5 are great phones for what they are although I will say if you don't mind/like buttons on the back than I would definitely recommend the lg v10 (nexus 6p, xperia z3/5, and blackberry priv (keyboard is meme tho) are all great phones as well)
>>
>>51547166
ya sure, i can pretty much bet you bough an S2/S3/S4 and just are shitting on samsung cause you made a shitty purchase decision 3+ years ago and regret it.

I didn't have samsung back in the days when touchwizz was garbage, because I recognized it as garbage and bought a different phone.

Now that touchwizz isn't garbage you have sworn them off and are going with a nexus or whatever the fuck else. Whereas I now see the clearly superior Note5 and it's much improved touchwizz and can happily buy it and enjoy using it.


This is what happens when you make informed purchases, you know what you're getting.
>>
>>51544717
You've obviously never used a note 4/5 or s6 and your just riding the almost normie tier anti samsung bandwagon because the note 5 has great battery life, absolutely no lag, and the screen looks fine
>>
>>51544717
Are you retarded? The exynos processor line are some of the coolest in all of android and never overheat
>>
>>51547227
Never bought a Samsung device and never will, unless they make a Nexus device again. Nice hardware, shame about the shitty bloated software.

Touchjizz is and will always be garbage. OEM skins are just unnecessary bloat.
>>
>>51547330
>Touchjizz is and will always be garbage
since you've never even owned a samsung device, i'm glad you've made an informed decision.
>>
>>51547386
Yes, my not investing my shekels to buy something that is shit means that I cannot have an opinion that it is shit. I mean it's impossible that I've tried out other people's phones and in store phones and found touchwiz to be lacking. I must just be uninformed because I didn't purchase something which is shit.

Nice post-purchase rationalization you've got going though.
>>
>>51547422
Even if you have used someone elses phone for a few minutes, that is FAR from getting a full experience of what a ROM offers.

Further, as has been said MANY times in this thread, touchwizz is good on RECENT samusng phones (n4, S6, N5). And I highly doubt you have used one of those running 5.1.1 for more than a moment.


Feel free to claim whatever version of touchwiz you used is shit, but please refrain from passing judgment on something you've not used, especially when all reviewers have been praising samsung for moving away from the over bloated touchwiz and moving closer to stock android, which FYI, samsung agreed with google to move touchwiz closer to stock about a year ago, and this is the result of their work, the current touchwiz which is much lighter weight and far closer to stock android than ever before.

Again, you're just not making a good argument because you've not used the ROM in question.
>>
I was one of the ones who preordered it on Tmobile and got it a week early.
Best phone Ive used since the iPhone 4 I got in 2010 (inbetween Ive owned a cheap lg). Battery life is stellar, it has never crashed or reboot, and is the fastest phone Ive used
Also the over saturation thing is a meme, it is the best phone display, can be modified in settings, and saying its over saturated is also saying that the nexus phones are too, since they bought panels that were on the S6/Edge
>>
Note 5 master race here.

This phone is godlike. Best camera, and camera speed I have ever seen. Best screen, blazing fast, amazing features with the s pen. I came from an HTC one m8,had an m7 and a nexus 4 prior. The note 5 is a masterpiece. A true legend.

I love this phone more than any piece of technology I have ever had. Touchjizz meme is just that. They have added improvements I have always wanted, and more. Dual screen mode is awesome.
>>
>>51547540
I went OG DroidX, iPhone 4s, LG G2, Note5.

I have to say the note5 has by far been the best of them all. Such an amazing phone, and I cant wait for my GearVR so I can start jerking off to VR porn and get a VR waifu dating simulator.
>>
>>51547540
Also
>people complaining about ram usage and shit
Hahahahaha what a joke now, my friends V10 gets about 1gb available while my Note has over 1.5 constantly
AND you can disable everything bloatwise, EVEN WITHOUT ROOT

It has free RAM because Samsung aggressively kills off background tasks, leading to tons of reloading if you have more than a few apps open.

Friends don't let friends buy Samsung.

touchwizz fags will defend this
>>
>>51547948
>Implying anyone here will read that

Also, what is there to defend there? He is debloating and removing features of his own volition. Samsung didn't tell him to do any of that, so touchwiz fans have nothing to defend.
