Well, hi there! It’s been a while since I visited my blog and actually posted an entry here - and yep I don’t consider my instagram posts as actual entries. Hahaha!
I’m here to share my views and experience on Samsung latest phablet - Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I’ve been a fan of the Note series since it was launched 2011. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to experience the first generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note since I’m stucked with Samsung Galaxy S2 back then. So I promised myself that I’ll be getting next generation of the Note series and the rest is history!
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 still packs the 5.7” screen but the resolution was boost to 1440 x 2560 pixels resulting to 515 pixel density. I must admit my Thirdee (my Note 3) looked pale when placed side by side with Four (yup, all of my gadgets has a name) as you can see in the picture below.
The colors are much more brighter. And even under direct sunglight, Four remains to be legible which is a big plus for me :)
Oh, I almost forgot - Samsung Galaxy Note 4 runs on Android OS v4.4 KitKat with the latest TouchWiz UI and is powered by Quad-core 2.7GHz Krait 450 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with 3GB of RAM. It has a 32GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot that support up to 128GB. The phone seems more fluid compared to Note 3 -“Sarap gamitn”
SGN4 combines a curved glass, metal frame and faux leather similar to Note 3 to give it a premium feel worthy of a flagship phone . Even though it has same screen size, it is slightly taller and thicker than its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a 16MP OIS camera that can record 2160p video recording @ 30fps, 1080p @ 60fps, 720p @ 120fps respectively. The front camera was bumped to 3.7MP for better seflies. Speaking of selfies, the camera a feature wide angle selfie. This is one is similar how panorama works but uses the front camera instead. See the sample picture below.
I think these two pictures, one with HDR off and the other one with HDR on.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a feature similar like the ones found in Lumias. It takes a series of pictures and allows to the user to select the focus type and the picture adjusts accordingly :)
What sets the Galaxy Note series from other phablets out there is their S Pen. And with Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes the redesigned S Pen. I personally love the quick action memo for jotting down notes and now with its new features like Smart Crop. Creating notes is much more easier.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one hell of a phablet. I just wished that is water resistant like S5. I know there are other great phablets out there like Nokia Lumia 1520 (excellent camera) Huawei AscendMate 7 (awesome design) and iPhone 6 Plus (Apple’s first ever phablet) but at the end of the day, you choose what really suits your lifestyle and for me Samsung Galaxy Note 4 fits perfectly. :)
So there you have it! My so-called review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
I still have a bunch of pictures that I was hoping to include in this post. Unfortunately, Tumblr won’t let me upload additional pictures. i keep getting an “Error uploading photo” message. Maybe I’ll try to upload those some other time.
