Galaxy Note 4 Specs

Samsung’s “phablet” release for 2014. It differs from previous Note releases by veering from the all-plastic construction to one that contains a mix of metal and plastic. Because of this, many have remarked that the Note 4 has a more premium feel in-hand when compared to the Note 3.

The Note 4 comes with Samsung’s array of S-Pen features and functions, which lets you take a screenshot and annotate it, create a pop-up window that contains a floating app, take a note, and more. It has a 5.7″ 1440×2560 QHD display and contains a Snapdragon 805 CPU with 3GB of RAM. The large 3220mAh battery provides above-average battery life and can be rapidly charged with a quick-charger, while wireless charging can be added with a new back plate or an inexpensive third-party Qi charging “patch” that sits beneath the back cover.

Reviewers say: With a big phone comes a big battery, and the Note 4 does not disappoint in this department. Reviewers also talk up the camera, which takes fantastic photos and videos regardless of lighting condition. On the downside, many feel that Samsung’s UI is still over-bearing to the point of adding too much complexity and clutter to the user experience.
