Samsung Note 4

I am a huge Galaxy Note fan. Love the whole series, but I did not upgrade from the Note 2 when the 3 came out because of the lack of new software and hardware features. I'm still not totally convinced I should upgrade still. What is something I should know about this phone that will change my mind? I'm familiar with all hardware and software specs btw.

Re: Samsung Note 4

Given you're familiar with the hardware specs, you will love the quad-HD screen resolution, especially with Super AMOLED screen technology with excellent color depth.

One major upgrade from older Notes is Sprint Spark LTE access. Having Sprint Spark is phenomenal when you're in a Sprint Spark market. You can check coverage at www.sprint.com/coverage.

Another great feature is the natural hand writing feel of the newly updated S Pen. If you are a fan of hand written notes then you'll love the new Calligraphy pen mode of S Pen.

Lastly, the cameras (front and back) have extensive updates. The addition of OIS (optical image stabilization) is truly amazing in how it clears up otherwise shaky shots when moving. The front facing camera has some new features and controls that allow for super fun selfies and wide shot group selfies.

Thanks for the great question. I hope this helps you decide.

And you'll love that you can no longer talk on the phone and be online simultaneously!

That is the greatest well kept secret SPRINT A IS NOT TELLING US.

Re: Samsung Note 4

I don't think that is a secret Sprint is withholding from anyone, with my understanding any time a sprint PR was asked about it in a new announcement, they always declared it.

Here is an example: Sprint to take its time over VoLTE » Telecoms.com

Re: Samsung Note 4

Ok. That was tech talk. Mumbo jumbo to the average customer. That was far from telling the customers that Sprint now falls short of a basic multi tasking function. All we're saying is BE HONEST with your customers. Just tell them straight out.... this phone will not do a few features your old phone could.

I would respect that.

Re: Samsung Note 4

I'm sure SprintCare has said that many times before in this forum.

Re: Samsung Note 4

So true, Sprint has, and not only on these forums but in other forums as well. Yet folks just want to see and read what they want to. It's been documented numerous times and yet folks complain.

If I had a previous device and relied on simultaneous voice and data every day and end up with a device that doesn't have that feature, I'll be [inappropriate word removed] if I'll stay with the device. Folks have 14 days to try out a device and if it doesn't work as they feel it should in those 14 days, they can return it, get out of the contract, etc, but nooooo they rather go beyond the 14 days, complain that they now can't get out or get another device because said device doesn't do x y and z. Then they come into the forums complaining.

Here is an idea. Stand in front of a mirror and start complaining. because that is the only one that is at fault here.

Folks, you need to take responsibility. Test the heck out of the devices which you buy. And if its not for you, then get another one, or go to another carrier. Simple as that.

I for one will have no problem blaming Sprint if they goofed up but in this case with the constant complaining about the simultaneous voice and data is really the customers fault. Get over it.

Re: Samsung Note 4

Even though I agree with you, I have to say that Sprint should have seen this coming too and should have been more proactive. I know they are working on VoLTE and WIFI (yeah WiFi, I found out they plan to broadcast WiFi also, hint the WiFi calling already rolled). I'm sure we will see VoLTE way before WiFi lol.
