Going to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 from Note 4

Just got the Note 5 coming from the Note 4. So far, I’m loving this phone. Very smooth, fluid and quick. Feels more optimized than previous Samsung smartphones I have owned in the past. A lot more comfortable to hold, and feels easier to manage with one hand. Very slim bezels. My battery life is even better than my Note 4, which was stellar to begin with. I’m not missing the removable battery at all. In fact, it feels like this is the way it should have been from the beginning.

The fingerprint scanner is night and day compared to the Note 4. Very responsive and you can register your finger/’s in multiple positions so you don’t have to be super accurate in how you place your finger on the sensor.

The stylus is a lot more responsive and love the triggered pull out design, which makes it much easier to undock from the device.

Why an SD card does not slow down your phone performance

In fact, it can help the speed by distributing the task between chips. It’s very simple, keep read files on your SD card and OS Apps and files on internal storage.

Why on screen buttons on Windows Phones a good thing

MS made the virtual keys available since WP8.1 Update 1, they are purposely trying to help the Android phone vendors to adopt Windows ROM without worrying about the hardware keys. Virtual keys are completely programmable. HTC M8 is an example. They can easily convert their existing flagships to Windows by installing a Windows ROM and some programming tweaks. Now the Xiami Mi4 is experimenting with the W10M by just loading up the W10M firmware.

Why Microsoft should not give up on Windows Phone

There is no point in giving up. Eventually most apps will be HTML 5 making supporting all devices trivial. Hell Navy Federal Credit Union’s Android app is god awful when I loaded bluestack to look at it.

Microsoft to stop selling Lumia in China, Japan

Nokia was very successful with a set up like this in most of the world during the Symbian days. People would go buy unlocked handsets of all kinds super expensive flagships (N8, N900, N95, etc.) as well as cheap value phones at full retail price at a Nokia Store and pick their GSM carrier as they saw fit. Nokia even tried this in the US with some flagship Nokia stores in LA and Chicago (I think, they were fading out as I joined and none were in my territory). They never made any meaningful impact on sales for Nokia in the US.
