Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

90% Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Dazzler. The concept of the Galaxy Note, a high-end smartphone with a digitizer, is still unique and well implemented by Samsung. But the device cannot utilize the promised additional performance of the Snapdragon 805. However, the Note 4 probably has the best smartphone display, which shines bright and can also convince outdoors.
Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy Note 4
Source: V3.co.uk English
The Note 4 still has a lot going for it. It falls down slightly only in terms of design, camera, and storage. In respect of the latter, at least it can be augmented with microSD. Yes it lacks iris scanning, it isn't waterproof, and the S Pen doesn't boast the bells and whistles of the newer model, but these aren't essentials in our eyes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 follow-up review: one year later

Twelve months on, the Note 4 is still a creative powerhouse that can just about keep up with the latest flagships and beats most rival phablets for useful features. The fingerprint sensor has been surpassed and the leathery design is still divisive, but long battery life, strong optics and that gorgeous, spacious screen are all serious plus points.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note 5: What's the difference between Note 4 and Note 5?
Source: PC Advisor English
With significantly improved performance, a more user-friendly fingerprint scanner and S Pen stylus, and the premium glass-and-metal design, we see no reason why you would choose the Note 4 over the Note 5 given the very similar pricing. However, you may feel the removable battery, microSD support and IR blaster in the Note 4 are enough to make you choose it over the new Galaxy Note; it's also the only phone of the two that is available on a contract in the UK.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Source: Phone Arena English
Although members of the one and the same product family, the two phablets are both extremely similar and noticeably different from each other simultaneously. While the Note 4 can be safely viewed as one of the most feature-rich phones Samsung has made to date, the Note5 is going down a different, more design-oriented path. With “form over function” kicking in inside Samsung's camp, the Note 4 could be regarded as the last great dinosaur of a dying era.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Source: Phone Arena English
Yet we must admit that the Galaxy S6 edge is better than the Note 4 in many ways, and we're not talking only about the outstanding design and build quality it draws so much attention with. Samsung's curvy flagship phone shines with its blazing hardware performance and with the responsiveness of its software, which is enough for us to recommend it over “older” Samsung handsets. Not that the Galaxy Note 4 is a slow phone – its Snapdragon 805 can handle anything thrown at it – but the Galaxy S6 edge is more refined of a smartphone with its superior hardware configuration, and that's a plus.

It is astonishing how smartphones, as advanced as they've become, are still evolving at a steady pace. When we reviewed the Galaxy Note 4 several months ago, it was hard to imagine how a handset could get any better, yet here we are, holding on to the Samsung Galaxy S6 which gives the answers to our question. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is better than the Galaxy Note 4 in many ways. It isn't leading by much, but ultimately, it does deliver a bigger bang for your buck considering that the two phones carry a similar on-contract price tag. Of course, making the choice between the two will be affected by one's priorities, but the number of reasons to go with the Galaxy S6 is greater, in our opinion.

Source: PC Advisor English
First of all, lets talk pricing. Samsung recently confirmed that its much-anticipated Galaxy S6 starts at £599 for the 32GB capacity. What’s interesting is that Samsung hasn’t yet released the pricing for its 64 & 128GB models. How much will they be? With the Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB priced at £760, we can’t help but wonder.

HTC One M9 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Source: Phone Arena English
Pricing, though, favors the HTC One M9 whatever route you decide to go with – whether it’s with a contract or buying outright. Here in the US, the M9 will more than likely require you to dish out $200 with a 2-year contract, which is the usual price attached to most flagships. As for the Note 4, however, you’ll pay more at $300. Despite the $100 difference in price, it’s something we’d happily pay for because the Note 4 is such an incredible smartphone packed with solid performances and rich features.

This was a shootout between four phones, but the real question is whether the Samsung Galaxy S6 has improved over its 2014 predecessors. A full year divides the Galaxy S5 and S6 and between them there was distinct improvement.

Samsung's System LSI business had a rough two years as their decision to go with ARM's big.LITTLE SoC architecture cost them a lot of market share, thanks in part to immature software and implementation issues. Usually in the past Samsung's own Exynos SoCs were regarded as the more performant variant given the choice of Qualcomm's Scorpion CPU based solutions.

There's barely a whisker in it, but the Galaxy Note 4 trumped the Nexus 6 in four out of seven categories. Google's latest smartphone would be an obvious choice for those after a stock Android 5.0 Lollipop experience, but we found the Galaxy Note 4 more manageable owing to its smaller screen size and dimensions. It also came out top when it comes to battery life and storage, offering the option to expand the 32GB internal memory via microSD.

The very best Galaxy Note so far by a huge margin, never has the expression ‘slab of hi-tech’ been so relevant – the Note 4 fits almost every smartphone feature and bullet point you can think of into the one premium frame. That it’s also one of the most ‘reassuringly expensive’ (as the Stella Artois ads used to say) phones you can buy is… expected.

Samsung has pretty much covered all bases with the Galaxy Note 4, making it a true flagship device. The only flagship feature missing would be the water and dust resistance that was seen on the Galaxy S5, but then the advantages offered by the Note 4 far outweigh the omission of the IP67 certification. Android Lollipop is another feature one would expect from the Note 4, but that should come out anytime next year.

If those conditions don't apply to you, I'd recommend the Nexus 6. From its design and ergonomics to its user interface, speakers, performance, and button setup, it's just generally the nicer and more pleasant-to-use device. It does lack the ability to view multiple apps on screen at the same time -- which is a bummer -- but the phone's overall user experience is so much stronger that for the typical consumer, I think it'll be the preferable option. (Not to mention that it's less expensive, which is a nice side perk.)

And yes, at $299.99 with a 2-year contract, it's also $100 cheaper than the extravagant Edge (and savings are even bigger when paying full retail).

It's hard to find much drawbacks with the Turbo and the Note 4, but if we have to go for something, it will be the design. Both are relatively crude-looking and handling, but while Samsung's phablet has a much larger screen, it weighs the same as the Turbo, and is much thinner. Motorola used innovative design materials such as balistic nylon and Kevlar, though, so we'd call it a draw in the looks department. When you consider that the Turbo is more comfortable to handle with one hand, the ergonomics scales tip in its favor, though.

Samsung has broken its long-held tradition of producing cheap-looking plastic phones and has managed to make its latest Note flagship look rather refined. With all its competitors moving to metal bodies, it couldn't have done anything else. Compared to its predecessors, this phone radiates power. On the other hand, those same market forces have potentially compelled Samsung to overreach in terms of specifications - honestly, Full HD was pretty impressive on last year's model and we wouldn't have minded sticking with that screen resolution considering it would have meant drastic improvements in terms of graphics performance.

Samsung has packed in more power, an even better display and a great camera making the Note 4 an excellent smartphone. This is the best phablet around, hands down. If you're already rocking the Galaxy Note 3 there's not a huge point in upgrading, unless you really want the screen and chassis bump, but if you're rocking an older phablet or considering picking one up the Galaxy Note 4 should be top of your list.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review - Best Phablet Yet
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Galaxy Note 4 is so much more advanced than other phablets that it's almost in its own league. Yes, the quad-HD screen is gorgeous, but I'm more impressed by what you can do on this canvas. The improved S Pen and Multi Window features made me more productive, and the 16-MP camera beat the iPhone 6 Plus in a number of shots.

For pure innovation alone, the Note 4 is one of the standout phones of the year. It might not be the best-looking handset but it's getting there, and it largely delivers where it matters. It's powerful, the screen is gorgeous, there's a great camera and the battery life is massive. If you like using a stylus, then it's the best one you can find on a phone, although we'd like to see Samsung do a little more to help find those S Pen-friendly apps. Even if you don't care for the stylus, the Note 4 is Samsung's best big phone yet, and continues to stay on top of the phablet category it created.

The Note 4 isn’t better than most smartphones because it’s big. But it is better at being big. It may be a little overpacked with features, but enough of them make proper use of the extra screen real estate to ensure this is a device that you use differently to a ‘normal’ phone - and isn’t that the point of phablet?

The Galaxy Note 4 is Samsung back on top form. They’ve nailed the basics - solid design, gorgeous screen, satisfying battery life - and topped them off with a seriously capable camera and tons of useful features. If you aren’t looking for a massive phone, then it goes without saying that the Note 4 isn’t for you. For everyone else, as long as you’ve got the cash to spare (the Note 4 is over £600 here in Blighty), this is one of the best premium phones out right now.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs HTC One (M8)

If we take size out of the equation, though, the Note 4 has a clearly pronounced advantage: its brilliant Quad HD display is a beauty to behold with its accuracte colors, while the screen on the M8 does not look bad, but lacks that color fidelity, then, the Snapdragon 805 system chip on the Note 4 is an improvement over the 801 on the M8, and finally, the 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera is among the best smartphone shooters out there, while the M8's UltraPixel camera is not all that capable. Where M8 still comes up is the stylish unibody aluminum body, but hardware-wise it is just not as impressive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: Premium design finally matches industry-leading specifications

The Note 4 looks much like the Note 3 and Galaxy S5 so there is nothing earth-shattering about the form factor and layout. You will find the physical home button centered below the display, with the fingerprint scanner that I can only get to work when programming it and never again, the camera and flash centered on the back with the questionable heart rate monitor, the typical Samsung power button on the right, and both the headset jack and IR port on the top.

As a phablet, the Galaxy Note 4 is the best in the business, all things considered. Yes, that means it’s an even better phablet than the iPhone 6 Plus, though the 6 Plus is still a better all-around device thanks to iOS and the surrounding app ecosystem. The Note 4 was designed to be as usable as possible for a device with such a large display, with great weight distribution and a thin housing. The phone also has the best display in the business without compromising battery life.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note 4 isn't the kind of upgrade that screams at you from the showroom floor, flashing its new features like an air traffic controller. But it's a much better upgrade: the kind that reveals itself more the longer you spend with it.

Is Samsung's latest Galaxy Note the best large smartphone out there?

For now, I'd say this: If you're already sold on Samsung's approach to mobile devices or love the idea of having a stylus, the Note 4 is a fine plus-sized option that's bound to meet your needs. If you don't fall into either of those categories, though, it might be worth waiting a few weeks to see what other options arrive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Nokia Lumia 1520

Well, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is still a fantastic thing to think about, especially in the Windows Phone camp. Its biggest strength now, aside from its great camera, is the low cost that’s attached to it – where you can find it for as low as free with a 2-year contract. Conversely, you’re going to pay a cool $300 to pick up the Note 4 on-contract, but the money invested in it shows whys it’s a premium thing from head-to-toe.

90% Galaxy Note 4 review: Samsung finally listens to its fans, and it pays off
Source: Greenbot English
But as I said in the beginning: it’s not merely the fact that Samsung debuted another phone-tablet hybrid device, it’s that it feels like the company is actually starting to listen to what its users want. The Google Apps are displayed front and center, Samsung’s apps are mostly opt-in, the chassis feels more premium than ever, and even Touchwiz is becoming less gaudy with every iteration. Maybe it’s because of Google’s iron-fisted demands that we’re starting to see this significant change, or maybe it’s just because Samsung will do anything to stay on top as long as it possibly can. Whatever the motivation, it’s working. This is Samsung's best phone ever, and one of the best phones of the year.

But therein lies part of the problem in the perennial power struggle between Apple and Samsung. Do you want a phone that can do it all as long as you're willing to put in the time to master every trick? If so, then get the Note 4. Do you want a big-screen phone that does just what you need, but does it with grace and unrivaled ease? Then go for the iPhone 6 Plus. The ceiling for Note users will be much higher, but the floor can drop out for the impatient or inexperienced; the iPhone occupies a safer middle ground.

Indeed, the Note 4 has quite a bit going for it, granted that you're ready to stomach its chubbier profile. The Note 4's screen is not only much larger, but also proved to be the one that is better, more true-to-life (even if not by far), and its arsenal of extra features works well with it. The Note 4's camera is also more flexible, and image quality is right up there with the best – in fact, outdoor shots during the day ended up slightly better than the iPhone 6's. Its optical image stabilization mechanism also helps you record shake- and tremor-free footage. But perhaps the biggest advantage of Samsung's latest device is its far superior battery life – a very valid concern with most of us.

As much as we like the LG G3, we have to admit that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the better phone, at least for the most part. It isn't leading by a mile, but overall, we find it a step ahead of LG's flagship in almost every major aspect – from design and display quality to hardware and camera performance. Made of metal, curved glass, and textured plastic, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a sophisticated phone with lots of character. Simply put, it is an eye-catching phone. The G3 is not a bad-looking phone by any means, and its metallic design also does a good job at drawing attention. Besides, the G3 is slightly smaller and fits better in the palm.

So there you go - time to draw the line and see how the hot favorite for the phablet throne this season did. It was a wild ride, but as it turns out, summing it up is far easier than we expected. Let's start with the key findings from our review. The Galaxy Note 4 impressed us with its look and feel, and flexed some hardware muscle while at it. The 16MP OIS camera didn't disappoint either - to say the least. The battery life was pretty awesome too, while the user interface has been nicely polished and stripped off of a lot of clutter.

With Samsung being credited with the popularization of the phablet form factor, it comes as no surprise that most consumers expect these to be super functional pieces of hardware, filled to the brim with extras and perks. But that's actually synonymous with Samsung, not the phablet category, and that becomes apparent with the iPhone 6 Plus, which, despite its relatively empty bag of goodies, makes for an awesome phablet experience. But it's not as simple as just “pick the Note 4 if you want features; go for the 6 Plus if you want simplicity”, and it never was.

When we were first shown the phone playing back a video on screen it was less the significant resolution and more the way the image "pops" from the screen that impressed - a feature derived from the 2.5D glass panel which, despite being flat in the hand, is ever so slightly curved within to deliver this effect. It's subtle, but unlike any phone we've seen before it.

Model:

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the latest update to Samsung's Galaxy Note phablet series. After many design adaptations, Samsung finally decided to use premium materials such as a full metal frame while keeping profile sleek and the edges curved elegantly. Only the soft textured back cover is kept for superior grip especially during single handed usage.

The 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 glass for added durability.
