Based on rumors and information that has just emerged, it is looking as if
Apple is poising itself to offer a 5.5" phone that will rival the Galaxy Note.
I wanted to be fair to Apple and list rumored specs, but because we are dealing
with the most secretive company in the world, it's difficult to nail down anything.
It goes without saying, Apple is going to be announcing some powerhouse
However, Samsung seems to be ready to counteract with a cutting-edge
Galaxy Note 4 with powerhouse specs that are rumored to include:
Ambled curved display (with rumored 4k support)
Quad Core Snapdragon 64-bit processor
16-20 megapixel camera
Improved stylus that allows handwriting to unlock phone or write name to call contact
The bottom line: For someone now deeply rooted in Android, it looks as if there is
a very difficult decision ahead for all in which phone will best suit their needs.
I always have loved the way that the iPhone is so well integrated with its Apple counterparts
(iMac, iPad, Macbook). Apple has upped the ante by allowing continuity and hand-off
across all devices. That's something you won't find in Android.
However, as long as Apple doesn't allow users to add additional storage or the ability
to swap out batteries when they get low, it seems as if those owners are going to continue
to deal with very restrictive issues that Android users don't have to worry about.
Personally, the best aspect of using my Galaxy Note 3 is its stylus. No fingerprints on the
phone and I can handwrite notes.
Yes, this is going to be a very difficult decision and one that won't be able to be fully
realized until both phones are announced in September/October.
