Is Samsung Galaxy Note 4 supported?

December 17, 2014 - 9:01am #1

I am looking to buy the best available hardware in the market right now to work on an AR project. Nexus 6 and Note 4 are tied on the top spot (Snapdragon 805), and since Nexus 6 (unlocked) is out of stock in the whole solar system, Note 4 becomes an obvious choice. But since Note 4 (unlocked) represents an investment of almost $1000, I want to be absolutely sure. Specifically, are there any known issues with it while running Vuforia? I tried to ran the samples on my old Sony Xperia S, but they didn't ran because of the old ARMv7 architecture. So I don't have much choice now. Any advice in this matter is much needed and shall be greatly appreciated. Best Regards CP

These are the supported resolutions on the Note 4, for the different camera modes:

Smart Device Profile camera resolutions for models with a Snapdragon processor:

  • Speed (800x480)
  • Default (1280x720)
  • Quality (1280x720)

Smart Device Profile camera resolutions for models with a Non-Snapdragon:

  • Speed (640x480)
  • Default (1280x720)
  • Quality (1280x720)

 

So, likely you should see 1280 x 720.

However, as I posted previously, if you can share your exact device Model number, we could double-check if there is any specific difference for that.

@ jane0912:

the display might have selected a resolution which is lower than the one used in the native camera app, but worth noting that it is not uncommon to have the native camera app working on higher resolutions. I am not sure whether calling it a "serious problem" is the best way to describe this.

Also, Vuforia allows selecting 3 camera modes: MODE_DEFAULT, MODE_OPTIMIZE_SPEED and MODE_OPTIMIZE_QUALITY;

the MODE_OPTIMIZE_QUALITY mode is the one that ensures higher visual quality. Have you tested Vuforia with it ?

EDIT:

also, would be great if you could share the Android version and Model number, so we can double-check..

I am using Galaxy Note 4 and Nexux 5 with Vuforia. 

Galaxy Note 4 has serious problem with Vuforia. The display with Vuforia looks very very blurred compared with original camera app result. 

Nexus 5 does not have that problem.
