Excellent review by GSMARENA...!
Everything is excellent on Note 4 , display , battery life & camera is awesome...!
But still the Snapdragon 805 can't beat the Exynos in Galaxy Alpha...?
That Exynos chipset in Galaxy Alpha is a beast...Exynos version of Note 4 is getting even more powerful chipset than Galaxy Alpha...!
I will buy it as India will get Exynos version...!
Far too bad stereo crosstalk! If I am to buy a this expensive phone then it should at least have stereo sound when using headphones!
Samsung seems to have dialed down the processing on the Note 4 compared to the Note 3, which is good.
But the dynamic range still seems to be narrow, which results in more pop on the phone screen, but on a larger TV or monitor it loses detail.
The colors appear to be oversaturated, velvet painting style.
Overall, the Note 4 camera is nowhere near the iPhone 6 Plus quality, more like a Chinese brand.
"Still, all things considered, the Galaxy Note 4 marks a very important achievement for Samsung. It's arguably the first time that its device looks better than a direct rival by Apple. Granted, the Cupertino giant didn't quite get the iPhone 6 Plus right, but it's still a position Samsung must've been dreaming about being in for year and it has finally achieved it - in the hand the Galaxy Note 4 feels more like the iPhone 5S than the iPhone 6 Plus."
Seriously, WTF?!! It's just a f***ing metal frame people, not a metal body! You just cannot compare the feel of an iPhone with that of a Note. The only thing that matches the iPhone looks and feel is the HTC One, period.
And don't start the iOS vs Android war again because of this comment or because of my nickname.
Great review, much appreciated. Was waiting for your review before buying.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2014Actually not all that powerfulYeah, somewhat. And wait for android fans explaining you why. It must be a fun debate..
excellent review by gsmarena as usual.
one thing is i request review of exynos version of note 4 also.
becoz in india i get only exynos version!!!!!!!!!
That is one lame analogy. The reason why 6 Plus is compared to Note 4 is because 6 Plus does not run Android. Any other Android tablet-phone (phablet) of Note 4's equal size isn't really a "competitor" so much as it is an alternative or a choice for the consumer.
This is one of the many reasons why 6 Plus is compared to Note 4. And of course, if you keep up with tech, you know how much Apple and Samsung *love* each other and obviously any device from either of them MUST be brought to comparison with the other... Just because.
For some reason viewing the 60fps on the website still shows it like 30fps. Have to download it.
actually Samsung totally failed to manage his product. its over one and half month and still the note 4 isn't available in market. it really a shameful for Samsung.
APPLE IS ALWAYS Batter to timely entertain the peoples.
Thanks to Apple
Very good review for good phone. But for me is a pity that it doesn't have temperature and humidity senson. I use it very often during hiking with my S4. And missed water resistant too.
cj100570, 10 Oct 2014The iPhone 6 Plus is not a competitor to the Note 4. If it doesn't come with a stylus it isn't... morethey are the same size..same market position and the 6 plus just entered a market segment created by the note..in other words are you serious
