Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) Smartphone Review

 

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...

Powerful SoC, Good camera, Great build quality, Very good battery runtimes, Replaceable battery, Expandable memory, S-Pen, Quick charge, 50 GB Dropbox for 24 months, Good GPS module, Decent voice quality

GPU throttling, No IP certification, No USB 3.0, Bloatware

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) is an excellent smartphone. The material impression is now better and pretty appealing with the metal frame. The Snapdragon 805 is very fast, but the throttling of the Adreno 420 under load is pretty annoying. It...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has to be the second most anticipated Samsung smartphone for 2014, after the Samsung Galaxy S5.

ARM A53/A57/T760 investigated - Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Exynos Review

 

It's been over three months since Josh had the opportunity to review the Note 4 in its details. The defining characteristic of that review is that it was a look at the variant with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 SoC running at the heart of the device. This...

So the question is, is it still worth to try and get an Exynos variant over the Snapdragon one? I definitely think so. In everyday usage the Exynos variant is faster. The small battery disadvantage is more than outweighed by the increased performance...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

 

In January 2014, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 4, delivering an incremental upgrade to its popular, super-sized, stylus-equipped smartphone. It was an all-around great phone, with a vibrant display, high-quality 16-megapixel camera and a robust...

The 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a brilliant high-resolution screen and takes excellent outdoor shots on its 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. Using the stylus is more convenient, and the battery charges very quickly.

Low light and indoor shots aren't as good as they should be.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a 2014 phone that's past its prime. Opt for the Note 5 or Galaxy S7 instead.

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

 

Samsung's Note line always sets the bar for Android specifications and after spending a week with the Note 4, Matthew Miller is about ready to visit his carrier store.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 launches after the Apple iPhone 6 Plus and just before the rumored large screen Google Nexus device, so competition is fierce at the moment. If you plan to use the S Pen functionality, then go order your Note 4 now, you will be...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ( frosted white)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 's S-Pen -- the narrow stylus tucked handily inside Samsung's surprisingly successful, giant 5.7-inch Galaxy Note phone -- stands out in a crowd. No other popular phone comes with a stylus, and this one makes the most of its...

The 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a brilliant high-resolution screen and takes excellent outdoor shots on its 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. Using the stylus is more convenient, and the battery charges very quickly.

Low light and indoor shots aren't as good as they should be. The Note 4 costs significantly more than some other phablets, like the LG G3.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will thrill anyone who loves a fast phone with a large screen, but it's best for compulsive scribblers willing to pay a lot for its winning stylus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: the best big-screen phone you can buy right now

 

What began in 2011 as a brand-new phone category has flourished into one of the most popular in the world. Smartphones with big screens (phablets, to som

Gorgeous design with high-end materials ; Nice display ; Best camera in a Galaxy smartphone ; Powerful performance ; Great battery life

Not only is the Note 4 the best Samsung smartphone I've ever used, but it's also the best large-screen phone on the market -- even better than the iPhone 6 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T)

 

With a premium facelift and an eye-popping 5.7-inch Quad HD display, the Galaxy Note 4 continues Samsung's reign of phablet dominance.

Incredible Quad HD display. New premium look and feel. Flexible multitasking. Improved stylus features. Outstanding battery life

Trades comfort for style. Requires some work to get the most out of the experience

Armed with an incredible Quad HD AMOLED display, cutting-edge Snapdragon 805 processor, and Samsung's newfound premium design, the Galaxy Note 4 ($299.99 with contract) is easily one of the most impressive smartphones of the year. It's a phablet that...

Still just too much Samsung software ; Overly complex in places ; Seriously, look at all these settings
