LOL at the gap, ahaha, Samsung fans really swallow anything.
ANYWAY, the camera bump must be listed as a disadvantage, since the iPhone 6 review did.
And oh, region lock is not a disadvantage???

S5 was only one before note4 and alpha I believe
AnonD-66693, 10 Oct 2014While the iPhone 6 plus can easily bend? No thx. What's with the really stupid comments?
The Note 4 camera is improved compared to the previous generation Note, but not near the iPhone 6 Plus quality.
The fingerprint unlock experience on the Note 3 was hit or miss, I hope this one is better. The iPhone has a pretty much perfect fingerprint sensor.
These are the important things for me.
Yes, I do have a 6 Plus, but if the Note 4 was better, I would buy it in a heartbeat. But at a first glance, it's better than the Note 3, but still inferior than the iPhone.
The review was worth of waiting, thank you! I,m totally waiting for my pre-ordered Note 4 arrival. 24th October in Finland.

Heads up on page 2, caption says "no camera shutter button" the Samsung camera app gives you the choice between shutter, zoom, and other options for the volume rocker when camera app is open
Superb phone......impressive battery life with that resolution....really very nice phablet
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.
