Finally an impartial review by the best mobile reviewing site on the web. I never write comments but I couldn't resist the temptation. I would like to give a suggestion to you guys doing a wonderful job at GSMArena. Could you kindly consider adding a separate section for extensive checks of Network, Wifi and GPS reception quality in your future reviews. Detail these with comparison tables with other handsets. Thanks in apprehension.
Er... what about integration with the VR headset?
Surely gamers would be very interested in that?
Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A G906S its the first QHD amoled by samsung #justsaying
Stellar analysis as always! I just would like GSMArena to get a bit deeper in audio performance and features, like for example, listing whether smartphones make use of Aptx Bluetooth profile, which I could not find anywhere in the site.
Feels somewhat like a downgrade to note 3. They remove IR, go from usb 3 to 2, removes air gestures (which Samsung put a lot of marketing dollar promoting it previously).
I hate Samsung but this phone is simply best. IPhone 6 plus a rival don't make me laugh that bendy crap can hardly win from 1520 or maybe even lose as 1520 got everything better from it. Apple 🍎 should pray that the consumers Stays there isheep and buy every icrap. After. 4s all Ithings are bs.

These phablets are not toys - they're for DOING.
How it looks and feels are secondary.
Doesn't matter how much house power Meizu put under the hood of their MX4 if you can't do as much with it.
As long as it's looks don't offend me and it lasts more than a day - I'll consider it.
I'm considering this phone...
Dododo, 10 Oct 2014What's with the really stupid comments?
The Note 4 camera is improved compared to the previ... moreBecoz ur comment as if Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 camera is like some "cheap" chinese brand quality. Regardless, the Note 4 camera is superb imo. I'm not going to swallow of what u have said that iPhone camera is superior. I'll wait for a comparison review. No hurt feelings though.
Hope that most readers here saw the benchmarks. Whether a fan or not, one cannot deny the powerful performance of iPhone 6 Plus, especially to those who like to call iPhones toys.
That being said, I think the contender for Android king may have just revealed itself. The Meizu MX4, if it can produce and distribute enough, may scare Samsung as the new Android phablet king.
As expected, amazing piece of tech. O and that basemark X benchmark! Even with over twice the resolution, this beast still managed to beat the 6 plus in gaming! That's just insane.
Great review guys, I pre-ordered this as soon as it was made available, should of had it today but for the delay here in the UK. This almost makes up for it, really happy to hear about the way it feels in the hand (from many reviews), and I'm pleased to hear about a slightly less obtrusive touch whiz (though it never really bothered me anyways), all together it seems to be probably the best phone samsung has made, this has just added to the anticipation.
AnonD-317910, 10 Oct 2014Yeah, it has upgraded software and works good on s5 now n4s is Mich improvedGood to know, thanks.
I probably will not end up with Samsung, but have been keeping an eye on Meizu's MX4 Pro, which is supposed to have a fingerprint sensor of good quality.
Good to have competition :)
An unbiased review. Great to see in this world of Apple loving site unable to write a review with clarity and favouritism. GSM ARENA IS THE BEST IMPARTIAL WEBSITE GOING. KUDOS TO YOU GUYS
AnonD-317910, 10 Oct 2014Note 3does not have a fingerprint sensor,
S5 was only one before note4 and alpha I believeMy bad. I had the S5 for less than a week, never had the Note, just played with it at the office.
I was referring to the S5 fingerprint slider.
Dododo, 10 Oct 2014Samsung seems to have dialed down the processing on the Note 4 compared to the Note 3, which i... moreActually that is post processing, if you switch camera apps,that blurryness goes away, been that way for several notes.
The Samsung camera app is not the best for photo taking on android, better off with third party
