Nice audio performance. If it was released when I bought my One M8, I would've bought the Note 4.
It would be interesting if the built-in browser really didn´t have page compression on wifi like Chrome does because it is available in the built-in browser on my Galaxy S4.

AnonD-317931, 10 Oct 2014Finally an impartial review by the best mobile reviewing site on the web. I never write commen... moreAgreed, GSMarena should take a look on how Notebookcheck.net review the smartphone, thy did review the phone's wifi and GPS reception, power consumption level of the phone (not just test how long can the phone last), heat test on both charging and non charging. Though their review on camera, phone features are less detail than GSMarena, but I really hope GSMarena can perform a more well-rounded and in-depth review in future
AnonD-79768, 10 Oct 2014"Still, all things considered, the Galaxy Note 4 marks a very important achievement for S... moreThe feel of the iPhone 6 Plus? That is a personal preference, not something that can be measured. Samsung's GS5 and Note 3 feel better in the hand than any iPhone because the Samsung phones have a soft, grippy back that is warm to the touch. This is the first Samsung phone that looks better than an iPhone. I've seen them both in person and the Note 4 looks stunning. The metal sides are polished on the edges to give it a very nice, high end look. The 6 Plus looks like an aluminum can with plastic inserts at the top and bottom. The iPhone 5s looks way better than the 6 or 6 Plus. Apple took a step backwards.
Actully the Note 4 design kinda looks like lumia 930 or maybe Samsung this time copied Nokia.
Impressive battery life. It's one thing iphones used to have advantage on. Now Samsung has the upperhand.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2014Great device, just a shame about that back cover.I guess that's why it's replaceable.
Great review. Is the Note 4 not waterproof?
If not, why these companies keep leaving out ONE major feature to add to the next model is just BS. Phone companies do this constantly.
Low light shots are garbage, OIS didn't help much. The sensor is still only good for daylight shots. Battery life is the atleast onpar with most of last year's phone in terms of webrowsing and IMs. Video playback endurance is great for numbers but that's done on SD resolution, at FHD and QHD it will be no where close to half of that, Of course this is the case with all their video play back numbers for all the other phones tested.
Not much compelling reason to go for this phone even if you have a Note 2 let alone Note 3.

Review says " The metal frame feels great to the touch and
adds quite a lot to the premium feel. More
importantly however, it should solve a long-
standing issue with Samsung handsets where
the silver-paint on the plastic frames would chip
and peel off with time to really spoil the overall
look of the company's phones."
I'd take removable back cover and removable battery over metal unibody any day of a week. If you don't like the back cover, you can easily replace it. There are many back cover available for note 3, metal, glass, real leather, you name it!! I think those covers will be available for note 4 too, if not they are already available. You can customize the note 4's back any way you want.
FAZA, 11 Oct 2014what iPhone 6 plus done in benchmark
1gb ram > 3 gb ram
dual CORE> quad core
I think... more1gb RAM is not superior to 3gb, same with dual and quad cores. These are 2 different OS, I would say iOS 8 is faster than Android KitKat, but not superior. Superior because you can do so much more with a Galaxy Note 4 compared to a iPhone 6 (Take notes with S Pen, run 2 apps simultaneously, use yr phone as a remote...) for CHEAPER.
Also you should maybe wait for Android L in a few weeks, so you can compare it with iOS 8 again :)
AnonD-318010, 11 Oct 2014Note4 by a mile,nothing comes close.Sony Xperia Z3 comes closest, but does not win.
What is there left this year? Nexus 6?
Waz, 11 Oct 2014Simply amazing phone! I have a quick question. Will the phone be running ART or Dalvik And... moreIt will probably make use of ART only when Android L is available. With 3gb of RAM and ART, I think this phone will be super fast.
