Samsung Pulls Galaxy Note 4 From Life Support
Even though it is has reached its two-year mark, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 still stands to be quite a competitive model in the smartphone market today. And, it comes with the fantastic feature of a removable battery.
On top of that, it is equipped with the Snapdragon 805 chipset and its 3,220mAh battery keeps the device alive longer on a single charge compared to the 3,600mAh Galaxy S7 Edge, according to Phone Arena.
This device is also the first Samsung device to pack on a Super AMOLED Quad HD display. Unfortunately, Samsung has limited its Android software update to only two versions for this device.
It began on Android 4.4.4 KitKat which means that it would not be receiving anything beyond the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. This proves that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will not be seeing the Nougat update, at least officially.
Users of the Galaxy Note 4 may still be able to enjoy features such as the Doze Mode, Google Now On Tap, and the Screen-Off Memo, but they would need to pick up basic rooting and flashing skills in order to get updated to the Android 7.0 Nougat.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users will have no choice but to be prepared for the risk of bricking your device while attempting to flash custom ROMs, but it is the only way they could prolong the life of the old flagship.
