The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a phone worth being excited about, and you should be perfectly aware of that if you’ve already read our Galaxy Note 4 hands-on post. What makes Samsung’s new phablet better than its predecessor, however, is likely not as well known. That’s why we though we’d clear things up a bit.
1. Improved design with metal elements
At a glance, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may not look too different from the Galaxy Note 3 – the two have a lot in common when it comes to design. However, the new model has been treated to a softer leather back. The leather isn’t genuine, of course. It is still a piece of plastic with a fancy finish applied to it. Yet nevertheless, we think the presentation is more refined this time around. But more importantly, the Galaxy Note 4 features a solid metal frame around its sides, which looks and feels nicer than the Note 3’s shiny plastic frame.
2. Color-accurate QHD display
3. Crazy-fast Snapdragon 805 SoC
4. 16MP camera with optical stabilization
5. Upgraded front-facing camera
6. Enhanced S Pen stylus
7. Fingerprint scanner in the home button
8. UV radiation sensor
9. Cat. 6 LTE connectivity
Long story short, the Note 4 isn’t dramatically different from the Note 3. It is still that S-Pen-equipped phablet with top-notch specs we know and love. But at the same time, a number of changes have been introduced – changes that we’re about to go over. So here are 9 major things that make the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 better than the Galaxy Note 3.
