AT&T Galaxy Note 4 now receiving Lollipop update


Galaxy Note 4 Verizon-8

Last month the Galaxy Note 4 started to receive Lollipop in select international markets, and earlier this month US owners on Sprint’s network also saw an update to Google’s sweet treat. On the heels of the Now Network, A&T is now rolling out Android 5.0.1 to the Galaxy Note 4.

As is typical, expect the update to roll out in stages, and so it may not be waiting for you just yet, even if you have an AT&T Note 4. If the update is ready, keep in mind that the update’s download speed is reportedly very slow, for whatever reason, and so it may take hours for the update to complete.

So what’s new here in this 1.1GB file? Like we’ve seen from other Samsung devices, material design elements from Lollipop are much less noticeable than they would be on a stock Android device. That said, there’s still plenty of changes such as brighter colors, an updated multitasking interface, a new lockscreen, Lollipop’s priority system and a number of bug fixes. Of course, Lollipop also introduces plenty of new bugs of its own that Android 5.1 aims to fix, but that’s a whole other story.

Have you managed to get your hands on the Note 4 AT&T Lollipop update yet? If so, what do you think so far?

Samsung’s Milk Music service now accessible through the Galaxy Tab 4 and Note tablets


Samsung-milk-music-ces-2015

Samsung announced the Milk Music streaming service last year to take on the likes of Beats Music, Pandora and Spotify. Its compatibility however was limited to a handful of Samsung devices, mostly limited to smartphones. Today, the Korean manufacturer has introduced support for Milk Music on Galaxy Note tablets as well as the lineup of Galaxy Tab 4 devices.

Samsung is yet to specify which Note tablets will be compatible, but the list shouldn’t be large considering that there are only a handful of Note tablets that have launched over a one year period. Milk Music is available only on Samsung devices and offers users an ad-free music listening experience. Customers will have to shell out $3.99 per month for this privilege, although it was initially made available for free.

So if you own a Galaxy Tab 4 or any of the recently launched Galaxy Note devices, make sure you check the Play Store for compatibility.

Samsung working on a 5.9-inch 4K Super AMOLED display for next year’s Galaxy Note 5


samsung-display-slide-1

2014 gave us the first smartphones with a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, but that’s not good enough is it? I am thinking 700+ ppi makes a lot more sense doesn’t it? Yup, I am talking Ultra HD baby, as in 4K. Well Samsung seems to agree as they are working on a 5.9-inch Super AMOLED display that will sport a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and a ppi of 746.

This is hardly surprising since Samsung did reveal a roadmap (above) during their Analyst Day last year.  It does show an UHD display for sometime in 2015. If Samsung does pull this off, expect to see it on the Galaxy Note 5.

Overkill? Possibly, but with Samsung’s phones allowing you to display multiple apps at the same time on the display, it actually is utilized. It means that you could shows 4 pop up apps on the display at the same time giving you a resolution of 960 x 540 (qHD) for each app. Displaying 3 apps at the same time would give you 720p each. So you see, you do need it :-)

According to a new FCC filing, Sprint will carry the Galaxy Note Edge


samsung_galaxy_note_edge_curved_not_bent

For a device that is going to be very limited at launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is going to be available in a lot of places. We already know it will be available through T-Mobile, and we’re pretty sure AT&T and US Cellular will be getting it as well, but according to a new FCC filing, it seems that Sprint will be getting Edge-y as well. 

edge-sprint-fcc

The new filing is for an Edge with the model number “SM-N915P” and offers support for Sprint’s network (LTE band 26, LTE band 41 and LTE band 25). It will be interesting to see how the device is received by consumers, and if Samsung decides to produce more of the unique handset. No word on stateside pricing, but judging by what we’ve seen overseas, it is safe to assume it won’t be cheap. Any readers out there going to try and get an Edge at launch?

Where to buy Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A week later than Samsung had originally planned, the new Galaxy Note 4 has today officially landed on UK shores. As far as we’re concerned, the 5.7-inch behemoth is the best big-screen phone you can get your hands on at the moment, with a gorgeous, pixel-dense display and all the power you can manage. And thanks to various software tricks, it’s not much of a chore to use one-handed, despite its beastly dimensions. Phablet fans waiting on the newest Note from the pioneer of the super-sized handset now have that all-important decision ahead: to buy or not to buy? Well, join us below as we investigate where you can get one, and how much of a dent the many options are going to make on your bank account.

EE Three Carphone Warehouse Buymobiles
Cheapest contract (with upfront) £15 (£460) £38 (£99) £25 on EE (£200) £25 on EE (£240)
Cheapest contract (no upfront) £49 £43.50 on Voda 4G £46 on EE
Pay-as-you-go £530 £600
Unlocked (SIM-free) £650

A new addition to the Galaxy Note series is usually a high-profile affair, and yet a couple of the big carriers are slightly behind the curve when it comes to updating their online stores with pricing and availability details. O2 is still listing the Note 4 as “coming soon,” while Vodafone’s keeping mum. We’d be surprised if both networks weren’t featured in the above table by the end of the day, but we’ve reached out to both to try and speed things up a bit. And by the way, if you’re after the flashy gold model, that’s currently exclusive to Carphone Warehouse customers.

UK release date for the Galaxy Note 4 delayed


Samsung UK Twitter 2

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was originally announced to be released on October 10, 2014 in a number of global markets, including the United Kingdom. However, a few days before the devices’ expected arrival, Samsung Mobile UK replied to a Twitter user that the UK release was being delayed until October 17th, coinciding with the Galaxy Note 4 US release. The company indicated that the change was due to “amazing interest and demand.”

Samsung UK Twitter 1

On October 10, that information was confirmed on Samsung Mobile UK’s own twitter feed. The so called “amazing interest and demand” may be the result of Samsung moving the release date forward in Korea and other markets, allegedly to compete with Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If current sales figures are being used as a projection, Samsung might think that gaining an extra production week now will help to meet a higher than originally predicted demand in two of its largest markets.
