After using a lot of Samsung phones, this model has really let me down and I'm thinking to sell this phone and move on as I'm really not happy about it due to below shortcomings.

- Display Profiles/Preset(Dynamic/Standard etc) - This obvious option is missing and my eyes is unable to getting used to stock setting and screen is something which I look all the time I really miss this option

- Spen Keeper - Too bad I use Spen

- Macro Focus in Camera - And camera too

If you're not satisfied with the phone, then sell it.
Display Profiles, I kinda miss it in my previous Note 2 and Note 3. I'm used to the Neo's profile though.
Regarding S-Pen Keeper, I really liked it too, but I hardly leave without the Pen even when I used the previous notes, and there's also a S-Pen icon notification on top.
About the macro, it's not built for total macro shots since it doesn't have a nice aperture, but it doesn't necessarily mean the overall camera performance is bad. Here's a few macros I took myself, it's not that bad, right?

There is no point asking here buddy, if u don't like it then sell it and buy another one. Everyone has there own preferences so a phone can't cater to everyone's requirements.
btw which phone are you planning to buy?

It's just buyers remorse and not complaining that phone completely sucks . When I move from one gen device to next one , I expect Samsung to leave options intact . For someone newly coming it doesn't make any difference to them

May be I'll pick up a Note 3 or Note 4 [emoji16]

Updated thread Title to have a healthy conversation

I completely understand, didn't mean to sound harsh, afterall we've had so many healthy conversations!
I think the display profiles not being there is more of a skimped feature cos of being a Neo.
Note 4 will be out in October, so if u can wait then good, cos I know it'll be the best device.

Yeah , that's what I'm wondering if Samsung deliberately crippled down features just because it's Neo and even though it's not hardware dependent

I never used it, always used adapt display (I like punchy colours), so not having issues. But if it's bothering u too much then u should switch to another phone. But I too am surprised that out of all features sammy decided to remove this one - incredible Samsung!

Lesson learnt . Never upgrade from a flagship phone to a Neo or mini variant [emoji24][emoji16]

The price gap is negligible in other countries but in India it's huge b/w flagship and Neo model .

Also insane price drop after buying the phone just makes you more disappointed
