Nothing can beat this Note 4 in the phablet category. Not even the iPhone 6 plus or LG G3 can hold the competition as of yet. The only real rival to this Note 4 is the Note Edge.
Rooney-, 11 Oct 2014Perfect and amazing GSMA. You guys are best when it comes to reviewing.
What else is requi... moreExactly.
It's just a large iphone. Some people will never be able to accept that though.
As far as sales go yes it's a competitor because apple will always sell. As a smartphone it's among last in the competition though.
Perfect and amazing GSMA. You guys are best when it comes to reviewing.
What else is required? This is the emperor!
My first doubt, why everyone is comparing Note 4 with iphone6+?? That phone is just 5.5" nothing else! So get that phone outta competition! It doesn't even belong here!
GSMarena, please remove the onscreen Manhattan score of the iPhone 6 plus.
There is clearly something wrong with it since it is more then twice higher than the offscreen - and they're at the same resolution!!
The same result has been posted by many reviews yet no one noticed that it is broken and invalid!
For some reason, it renders at the resolution of the iPhone 6,not at 1080p.
huhuhu, 10 Oct 2014Your comment already acted as a catalyst for debate.My comment had nothing to do with either Android or iOS. To each their own, and if they're happy with what they use, it's great.
No, my gripe is why people are making such a huge fuss over this metal frame. It's just a frame, not a body! I can understand if the Note 4's back cover was made of metal, but it's not.

Thank you for the great review with honesty and dedication to all things digital. You all always have the best reviews and most in depth that's why I always come here for a good fix on electronics. I'll be keeping my note 3 until the 5 or the next k zoom which I'm really interested in getting.
Behold, the King of kings has arrived.
Cant wait to get my hands on it, but hope the screen is not yellow tinged and would have preferred an increase in audio output rather than on par with Note 3. But anyway, I'm pretty sure its an awesome phone.
Yes it is true, Auto Brightness mode can push the brightness higher than the brightness slider would allow you to. If I am in full sun with brightness at max, when I turn on Auto, the screen goes even more brighter. That's on my Note 3
I wonder where are the people who.. Oh..idk.. Cried out the battery was gonna suck because of the useless but best display on the market. Camera not being good as iPhone but evidence clearly shows superiority. Etc. Smh hate before you even get the evidence to back it up. I'm ashamed at the brain processing of you guys android or iOS. It's just pathetic if the dumb stuff you say. You know the note line is the phone to beat but yet continue to hate. For what? Spilling false info for what? Attention? Would love to know.
It doesn't use an Isocell camera it's a Sony sensor, the imx240. This also means that it doesn't have phase detection autofocus anymore.
This time Samsung has got it right.
Man desperately need this phone.
Best Display, Best Camera, Best Hardware, Spen, Very Loud Speaker and good design(though not best)
What else do u need.
And regarding Status symbols, Note series have always been a status symbol in par with the i phones.
Function wise, Note is at least 100 times more useful than General Android or Iphone because of its Spen features. Jott
Check out the performance reviews and compare it with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+. Hardware wise, Samsung is a beast, but benchmark and performance wise? :P Apple iPhone 6+ ruled it!
Thank you for this fantastic review. I was waiting for some quality info on this phone and you managed to convince me to sell my 6 plus after 4 generations of iphones and get this phone.
[deleted post]You are wrong, mate... It is a very profesional , honest and unbiased review (like always on GSM Arena).
Gap? actually almost all phones have gap. it's there, no manufacturing defects...
Jovan, 10 Oct 2014As expected, amazing piece of tech. O and that basemark X benchmark! Even with over twice the ... moreObviously you have a problem of reading. On some graphic charts the iphone 6 obliterated the note 4 in performance. On screen or off screen so don't use that useless power hungry high resolution screen as an excuse.
