Ugly & Unpractical: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Gets Very Minimalistic Render, Some Specs

Concept Phones:

This is a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED phablet with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 500+ ppi. Inside the Note 4 we find a Snapdragon 805 2.5 GHz processor and other specs include LTE Cat 6 Support and an S Pen stylus with updated gestures and air command. The device uses 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, it has dustproof and waterproof capabilities and runs Android 4.4.3 out of the box. There’s a 16 megapixel ISOCELL camera at the back with 4K video recording.

A quite ugly concept render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 if you ask me. And the buttons on the side seems to be made for one hand handling of the phablet, and I can't see that being practical at all on such a huge device. I also wish Samsung would be using such lock screen but they won't, I'm sure of that because TouchWiz will never be as minimalistic.

Samsung needs to do something about the ugly design of the Note series that's for sure, but this is not it.

I remember the Flash war: RIP Flash: Why HTML5 will finally take over video and the Web this year

The Next Web:

The HTML5 versus Flash debate has been a hot topic among Web developers for years – and even more so since Steve Jobs published his now infamous 2010 letter touting HTML5 as the future and Flash as “no longer necessary.” But whether you side with Flash or HTML5, there’s no denying that the implications of HTML5 on video and the Web are real.

I remember when Flash was the key feature that Android users used against iPhone users in the never ending “my phone is better than yours” war. Until Google removed it from Android :)

Then everyone suddenly was on the same side, and Android users had to think up something else to differentiate them (the time wasting of customizations was what they came up with).

An interesting read though, about the death of Flash.
