Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

 

Samsung's 2014 phablet still packs a punch

Samsung has packed in more power, an even better display and a great camera making the Note 4 for an excellent smartphone. It'll be too big for some and the S Pen is still questionable, but overlook this and you'll be happy.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

 

Is Samsung's latest phablet the best yet?

Beautiful screen ; Strong snapper ; Loads of power

S Pen is questionable ; It's really expensive ; TouchWiz not for everyone

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review - Pocket-lint

 

-

Built-in S Pen stylus and related features, great screen quality, decent battery life, super powerful, improved multi-screen and software functionality, quality camera, fast 4G connectivity (CAT 6 LTE-A)

Still a plastic rear panel, some app/software excess, fingerprint detection unwieldy at this size, some multi-screen functions are long-winded and fussy to operate

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a rare example of a phone that not only does shed loads, but does it all so well. Despite the suggestion of Apple, Huawei and Sony competitors closing in on the big-screen phone space, the Note 4 exists in its own world...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

 

Update 10/08/2015: The Galaxy Note 4 has been with us for nearly a year, so it's no surprise that Samsung is readying up a successor to its flagship phablet.

Exceptionally sharp, vibrant screen ; Brilliant battery life ; Solid all-round camera ; Packs plenty of power

S-Pen app discovery needs work ; Plastic back still feels tacky ; Some software features are not easy to find ; Very expensive

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review - Still king of the phablets

 

It's expensive, but the Note 4 is the king of giant phones with its stunning screen, excellent design and long-lasting battery

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3 comparison review

 

That price will drop over time but even when it launched the LG G3 was £100 cheaper. Since it's been around for a good chunk of the year, it's now available at under £300 making it almost half the price of the Galaxy Note 4.

The LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are two of the best phablets you can buy. Each has top-notch specs including a Quad HD screen, microSD, great cameras and various bells and whistles. While the Note 4 is an excellent phone, it's not far enough ahead...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 video review: A better phablet than the iPhone 6 Plus

 

The larger than life smartphone can be yours if you're happy to splash out a cool £600 making it one of the most expensive handsets around, although it's a little cheaper than the similarly sized iPhone 6 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

 

Big on specs and on performance, the Note 4 is the best big-screen phone yet

Improved design Great screen Powerful performance High-res music support

Fingerprint scanner is hit and miss ‘Touchwiz’ is still a little heavy-handed

When it comes to big-screened phones, Samsung really knows what works. It’s been doing it for years, before many of its competitors, and that really shows in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Innovative software tweaks that make the most of the screen, and a...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

 

As usual, the Galaxy Note range fetches a high price and the Galaxy Note 4 will set you back £599 which is a big chunk more than the Galaxy S5. It's worth noting, though, that it's cheaper than the similarly sized iPhone 6 Plus which is £619 and has...

The Galaxy Note 4 is a bit of a handful and is rather expensive but lovers of the Galaxy Note range will likely be enamoured with this edition. It is, on the whole, a great device with plenty of power and features. As long as you're aware that you're...
