Adding one more test - Bend Test. The winner is surely iPhone 6 Plus. With 70lbs pressure, the iPhone 6 Plus is easily to be bent which Note 4 need much more strength to do so.
Category wins as per the review:
still image quality
To me that leaves the Note 4 as the overall winner but with hope that Samsung reads the review as well and fixes the low-light stills white balance and the OIS for use with video.

I will buy android smartphone because I know it is working perfectly. And that is not true IOS cannot lag or freeze. If you say that you never had an iphone.
all hail the iphone apples best creation, wow trully the fall of samsung? kinda wishful thinking really, as long as suckers like apple exist to buy hardware from them sammy will live on. threads of sammy and android haters can be posted thousands of times but fact is sammy is here and will always be here.
the note hits the sweet spot with the 5.7" screen baby. crying that one device was created and preaching fictitious thinking wont bend reality one bit.

But people like you will buy it ,because it has some specification on paper but it will not work properly (like eye scrolling).

Android or shamesung is nothing in front of iOS and iphone.
[deleted post]By the way, my previous comment was against the person who just flippantly said Galaxy was more productive.
I then went on to comment and prove one side, where this was not the case, using certain facts, which he did not even bother to do.
I do not however believe this one way or the other. Like I said, its as productive as you want it to be. Make a choice and be happy.
HIlarious that yo uall still believe the Apple is doomed story. Funny how there isn't a SINGLE headline worrying about Samsung after three consecutive declines in profit, the last one being a MASSIVE 74%!
Apple just needs to sell 10 units less than last year and it is doomed for sure lol:
“Apple is screwed” – 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.
The best phone is the phone that works the best for you, and what is compared here may not be compared elsewhere.
There are inherent pros and cons to each platform.
At GSMArena, tech specs is the order of the day, and Apple will never win, as it is actually AGAINST Apple philosophy to overpower their devices just for the sake of it. It is in the best interests of Android manufacturers to do so however, as they cannot be compared by platform, since they all use Android.
Someone who would like a portable studio on the go for example, would find all the above useless, as only iDevices are able to offer apps and accessories like iRIg, Amplitube, and plug in electric guitars and record on studio apps like GarageBand.
Choose what's best for you, and cheer for your team sure. But it does not mean anyone who chooses differently from you is stupid. That is the part both sides should be against.
Dot-WiFi, 06 Nov 2014*no memory expansion - u put 10000 movie and song did u listen and watch all ?
*no user cha... more*u put 10000 movie and song did u listen and watch all ?
-Yes, and Yes. I watch an episode of a series in the bus going to work, and another one coming back. And listen to music all day long.
*no user changeable battery - why ? ur battery always explode? or maybe ur phone really need lots of battery...some people prefer power bank than change battery
-Why not? What if you go on a long trip, is it better to "recharge" the phone within seconds (just change the battery) or to wait for hours for it to charge via the power bank?
*no multi-window function - u play games while watching utube ? how many people used multi window?
-No. No one plays games while watching youtube, but I chat a lot while watching youtube. I browse the web, google info's, while taking notes or writing down ideas. etc.
*no infrared remote control function - is that really important in people life ? why ? no infrared cant get lte coverage ?
-Yes it is. TV, Projector, Air-conditioner, all those can be controlled by 1 device. I got rid of all other remote controls in my house.
*no active digitizer pen - we got 99sen stylus pen... still works.. spen dint feel like writing on paper u know
- You don't need to hold a separate pen with you. And you obviously didn't use a S-pen, or at least not the one in the Note 2 and up.
*no stereo audio recording whatsoever - ok u win..lol
- Would have been interesting if you'd say that you don't need stereo audio.
*no wired or wireless universal for sharing system to other branded devices - i can share photo and songs with my friend using whatsup (if u know how to do it)
- Whatsapp? Really? You can transfer full res pictures with whatsapp? Or full res videos? How long will it take? How long does it take you to put some songs on your phone from your PC? (it takes me about 10-30 seconds for an album (from the moment I put in the cable, until copying the files finishes).
typical of some people. i thought the subject was a comparison of two devices and thier daily usability tests not some war over what company makes more profit than the other. fainboisn trully plagues a lot of minds in this world. cmon really now? just because of a device comparison people are ready to jump at each other like this, a lot of growing up is needed. seriously mates just accept that the note is proven to be more applicable in its segment just like we all know that apple products and thier ecosystem is the simplest to run. yes droids the apple ecosystem is good as it provides simplest synchronization accros multiple devices. just accept that the iphones 6+ strength fell short in direct comparison with a note 4, the note is in its fourth refinement so what can u really expect apple have been ridiculing the use of large screens in hansets and lost on dev time in the segment. ifans just hope that apple will soon cathup coz i can tell that a lot of iphone users are upset by the reports provided.
[deleted post]If we look at sales, then xiaomi is the king of smartphones....we are looking at the quality of the product not the sales....I don't care much about specs, but I can tell you that the Note is a far more productive tool than the iPhone...that's a fact....iPhone can challenge Samsung in the smartphone area, but in terms of Phablets, the Note is a waay superior device than the iPhone, without even looking at specs.....ask yourself this...what is it that you can do with an iPhone 6+ that you can't do with a regular iPhone...(I'm pretty sure the list is very short) now ask yourself what is it that you can do with a Note 4 that you can't do with an S5/Alpha.......you see where I'm heading with this...iPhones sales will always be high, but that won't change the fact that the 6+ us an overall inferior device to the Note 4....
[deleted post]I think Samsung can survive without Apple just fine. Correct me if I am wrong.
your list in the first page is missing so many things
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 over iPhone 6 Plus:
- IR port
- better screen to body ratio
- 3 GB of RAM
- USB On-the-go
- gesture, UV sensors
-Fast battery charging
- Air gestures
- more supported file types (video, audio, ...etc.)
Apple iPhone 6 Plus over Galaxy Note 4:
- 64 bit architecture that is being used
please say it as is, and don't worry who gets upset
and please add a summary table in the end of any comparison review who is better for each category

What matter the most is practicallity. If the phone just stick to the brand but offer nothing. Its a crap. Don't ever waste your money on it. Peace ;)
