Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the latest smartphone to come out of the South Korean company, Samsung. It certainly is a flagship, considering how much power and beauty it brings. Samsung really worked hard this year, and it didn’t take a lot after the announcement for it to arrive at our doorstep. At the first glance, it is long and sleek, coming in multiple colors. For fans of classic black, you have Charcoal Black to adore, and for others – Frosted White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink. It fits in your hand nicely, no matter if you have big hands or just an ordinary pair. Let us delve a bit further into Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features.

Since the school days, you had to learn and use a pen every single day, and the habit still follows you to this day. In the days when technology is taking over, about 72% of people today still use a pen on daily basis, so why change it? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 understands the habit, and it allows you to use an S-pen Stylus. Not only is it more precise, but it allows an artist in you to come out and play. You can pass off time drawing funny shapes, create weird art, or make a note in your handwriting. You won’t have to go looking for a paper and get to be a conscious human being and save a tree from destruction.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 brings a new set of upgrades when it comes to the visual side. It now boasts a Super AMOLED touchscreen, which means your eyes have never been happier to stare at a screen. The colors are bright and vivid and make browsing through your images a pleasure. Not only is the screen quality-made, it is big, with over 73% screen-to-body ratio. The screen has the same diameter as the previous model – 5,7-inches, which might disappoint you.

Let that feeling pass, because Samsung Galaxy Note 4 brings a QHD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, compared to the previous Full HD. With approximately 518 ppi pixel density, Samsung assured you that you’re in for an adventure. With colors that come alive in combination with excellent black levels, you can watch videos or read with ease. But why choose? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 brings a Multi Window feature – allowing you to work on multiple things at once. It does have some disadvantages, like increased battery consumption, and more processing power allocated. But if you’re the guy/girl that likes to multi-task and thus save time – this feature is made for you.

All these features pose some functional problems because Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is not the slimmest phone around, but it’s a giant with a heart. The body is long, but not as wide, which makes using it much, much easier. It reduces the need to stretch your hand to reach the other end of the virtual keyboard, but we still recommend you use it with both hands. If that doesn’t fit you well, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a one-handed operation mode to shrink the size of the screen for easier use.

Are you an avid gamer? Are you constantly seeking the next best thing to run just that game that keeps loading for few minutes? Let’s take a look under the hood, and see the specs of Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It is powered by a Quad-core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805, a little upgrade from previous Snapdragon 800. But don’t let that small difference fool you, Snapdragon 805 is the most advanced Qualcomm chip technology, raising the performance a notch higher! The processor is specifically optimized to handle the load, so you will find everything is working better and faster.

The processor will be able to handle high-resolution display, improve camera shooting experience, and offer a better battery life while watching videos. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is equipped with an Adreno 430 GPU, which is promised to run about 40% better than the 330 version. All that combined with 3GB RAM this beauty comes with makes a deadly combination for your daily tasks. Gone are the days you were disabling shadows to improve performance, games on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have never been better. Benchmark tests have shown that its closest competitors were its relatives – another Galaxy models.

Are you looking to improve your social media presence? In order to do that, the pictures must look serious and sharp. You can say goodbye to blurry, low-pixelated images with Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It comes equipped with a back camera of 16 MP lens with dual-LED flash, auto, and a touch-focus feature. That’s all part of the standard package, and it will hardly impress you in this day and age. But what this smartphone apart is certainly the integrated OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). That means you are going to take high-resolution pictures without the camera shake getting in the way. Not only that, OIS allows you to take a better picture in non-ideal, low-light conditions. The front camera is only 3 MP, but it has certain features to improve your selfie game. Having heard that, we would advise you to stick with the back one.

Before we go any further, let’s mention the price of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – 298$. If you still aren’t convinced it’s worth every penny, let us continue. With a great phone like this, you would expect to be out and about while using it. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 delivers just that – with a removable Li-Ion 3220 mAh battery. The battery life is better than you can hope – especially with the resolution and the peripherals inside. You will rarely have to be stuck near an outlet, except at night, to allow Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to regain its power. If by a chance you find yourself running low, but located near an outlet – don’t worry. This beauty has a Quick Charge feature to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. It promises to regain about 50% of battery juice in about 30 minutes of charging.

To wrap things up, let us delve into the working environment you’ll be using. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ships with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat), but it has an ability to go up to 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). Samsung really listened to its customers with this one, so it comes with the least amount of bloatware pre-installed. Typing a long code every time you unlock your phone probably made you tired by now. Those days are certainly over, as Samsung Galaxy Note 4 brings a fingerprint scanner feature. You are going to be able to unlock your phone in a matter of seconds, while still keeping it private and secure.  The menus and navigations are less cluttered now, and you’ll have a great time using some pre-installed apps, along with apps of your choice.

    I had to sell my phone

    I had to sell my phone, as I had it since it came out. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs were well ahead of its time, I used it for nearly 3 years! I just got emotionally connected to it, it brought me such a pleasure when I bought it. What can I say about the specs? It's still relevant even today! Snapdragon 805 and Adreno 420 let you run the games smoothly. Now, of course, you can't expect games built for today's flagships to run as good, but they still do. If you can find a second-hand Galaxy Note 4 for a good price, trust me, you should take it.
