Samsung Galaxy Note 4 falls under the finest phablet category. Practically talking about this model I am quite sure there are many who are having eye on this from long time. And today we can give you a review on this. That means we are able to test and find out what validation Samsung reliably claims on this phone and to what extent they prove to be correct. When it comes to Phablet I had seen manufacturer does not prefer to work hard, except Samsung and just recently Apple. Because with big size the demand rises. It must be a nice device for gaming, app and with good battery life. The overall demand rises here and so the cost.
Samsung on that field is able to keep them ahead of the race. Their Galaxy series was proved to be the most successful model yet which carved Samsungs reputation in the market. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with a great sleek design. It has a qHD display that manages crystal clear output with ultra smooth touch support. Powered by a high end Snapdragon 805 fills the power needed to run this monster. Any app or game whether HD or not will work nicely without giving out much trouble.
Samsung improved the S Pen making it lot more productive for the usage. And for camera Samsung ads an Optical stabilization so that you can get a stable and clear images even when you are moving. Above all, the battery life matters a lot as well. It is obvious that a phablet will need more power than other regular sized smartphones. Samsung is not increasing the battery life but making charging faster. In less time you will have enough juice to move. I was expecting a big rise in the battery power which remains limited compare to the old one. Let’s see what more it brings but first, let’s have a quick look at its highlights:

Design & Packaging:
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 earns 6 out of 10 when it comes to the design. That is because Samsung is not doing any major improvement or modification in the design. It just adds some new feature on the old design making it more and more flashy. The device comes with a common plastic body which is not really durable, but also not bendable like Apple iPhone 6+.
In terms of design you get a very rich look due to back leather cover which is also used in Note 3. Edges are smooth. It is large enough to give you maximum grip. There are ample of great covers in the market that you can buy and use extra layer or protection. The device has a felt design with simple look but yet it is a shiny phone. Samsung looks like not be using any glossy elements on the back panel. Common things like home button and volume rocker are reputed like the old models.
Almost all elements consist of buttons, and ports are similar to Note 3. Minor changes make the device very pretty in looks. I will recommend you to add a durable cover so that you can maintain the phone’s design quality for long time. It might get fade with time. Especially when you are having a white edition.
Display / Screen:
For a phablet, display matters a lot. If that is not proper then who’s going to buy the phone. This phone comes with a 2.5D cover glass. This enhances the display more making it better phone and boost the touch sensitively at a very high rate. Once you use Samsung Galaxy Note 4 it will be hard for you to switch to any other device due to its display quality. The glass gets bit thicker from the font and this adds more to the visual. It is considered as a big upgrade for the phone.
The display also features a Quad HD resolution and the size is around 5.7inch. Pixel density is 500ppi. I am quiet amazed with the resolution quality here which is nice and every graphic visual is impressive. Contrast and saturation is also great. Super Amoled display properly justifies the output quality. Each and every color is vibrant. Checking your multimedia files on the same is great. It is can be an important part of your day to day entrainment. For phablet having a high resolution display matters a lot. This also defines the overall quality of the phone.
