While Lollipop has been officially rolling out to several variants of the Galaxy Note 4, the team at Cyanogen has been busy keeping up with Samsung by releasing CM12 nightlies. Today, the custom ROM is available to one more variant of the Note 4 family: the European N910F.
This marks the first time the N910F Note 4 gets official CyanogenMod support so there are bound to be bugs — obviously, this is still a nightly download. Read More
We've been seeing a handful of Samsung flagships get updated to Lollipop here in the United States, where the lion's share of phones are still sold with shackles firmly attached to the carriers. The standard international model of the Note 4 uses Samsung's own Exynos chipset, but there's also a variant with a Snapdragon 805, model number SM-N910F. Users in Germany can access the official Lollipop update on these phones today via Samsung's Kies program, according to SamMobile. Read More
While Motorola, LG, and HTC have been relatively quick to update their flagship devices to Lollipop, Samsung owners have been (not so) patiently tapping their feet in anticipation for the news of their Galaxy phones receiving the same treatment. But the wait is almost over for Galaxy Note 4 users, as the 5.0.1 update has started rolling out in Poland, according to SamMobile.
The update weighs a little less than 1GB, as XDA user thiagoribeirorj reports, and is available OTA to the SM-910C (Exynos) variant. Read More
If you have a late-model Samsung phone on US Cellular, odds are pretty good that there's a software update waiting for you. The Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 flagships are getting an updated build of KitKat, along with the last-gen Galaxy Note 3. Don't get your hopes too high: all three phones will still be running Android 4.4.2 after the update. But Samsung is pushing out a few incremental changes, notably for the dialer and camera.

TouchWiz getting you down? Of course it is, because it's TouchWiz. Now that we have the Samsung mocking out of the way, down to the news: there is now official support for CyanogenMod on the T-Mobile and Sprint variants of the Galaxy Note 4.

So, um, Samsung. You guys are really digging this "Milk" branding, huh? A music service, music videos, and now a virtual reality video system, all named after bovine lactation. And you're sticking with it despite the fact that "Milk" isn't nearly as internationally marketable as, say, "Samsung Music," and in the face of a trademark suit, no less. Well OK then, more power to you I suppose. Go ahead and go forward with "Milk VR." Read More
There's no such thing as a connection that's too fast. Samsung seems to be following that sentiment with the latest variant of the Galaxy Note 4, officially announced this weekend. The new Note 4 has something called LTE Advanced Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation, which is a fancy way of saying that its mobile download speed is faster than just about anything else on the market. Samsung claims the phone can download files at a speed of 300mbps, faster than all but the most advanced wired connections. Read More
ZeroLemon loves to strap enormous batteries onto every phone that they can, and since they keep doing it for basically every new Samsung and LG high-end model, someone must be buying them. The latest phone to receive the company's blessings of longevity is the Galaxy Note 4, itself already one of the biggest phones around. A 10,000mAh battery and a replacement rear cover (which is really more like a case) can be yours for $59.99 on Amazon. Read More
