INTRODUCTION

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung launched Galaxy S5 with a lot of expectations. Truth be told, it did not fetch significant profits to them. With the launch of Samsung’s fifth phablet (4th was Note 3 Neo), Galaxy Note 4, Samsung wanted to make a mark in the smartphone and phablet markets. And yes, Galaxy Note 4 surpassed the expectations of one and all. Despite the foray of Apple into phablet market the very same year, Galaxy Note 4 turned out to be a huge success. Samsung corrected their mistakes from the past Notes and this one was ready to face each and every challenge.

One of the perks that Galaxy Note 4 brought to the phablet game was the exclusive design. A curved glass over the screen and a metal frame complemented by a leather back panel, Galaxy Note 4 continues to be one of the most timeless reflections. Samsung made no compromises to the specifications either. A 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, with curved Gorilla GLASS 4, is an absolute delight to eyes and fingers. With 3GB of RAM, it was one of the fastest smartphones of the year as well. It sure had a lot to offer, and more importantly it wasn’t a disappointment for anyone. Let us go through Galaxy Note 4 in detail, and find out what made it such a huge success –

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Design and Display
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Design & Build

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 stands at 153.5 mm x 78.6 mm x 8.5 mm and weighs 176 gm. Galaxy Note 4 is very much identical in size to its predecessor, but it is still a little bit heavy. Of course, the curved glass on top took some extra space and resulted in increased thickness. If we look at the Note 3 physically, it can be inferred that Samsung just added a faux leather finish back panel and curved glass, along with a metal frame. This actually makes it look much better.

The phone feels very good in the hand with the metal frame while holding. There is no more stitching on the back, as it makes the back panel look a little overdone. Also, the gorilla GLASS 4 on top improves the design and look of the phone. At the front, it has a 3.7 megapixel, f/1.9, selfie camera, which is capable of recording videos at 1080p. There is no IR gesture sensor this time. The proximity sensor and ambient light sensor lie just beside the earpiece. The home button is at the bottom front which has capacitive keys at both sides. The power key is on the right, and the volume rocker is on the left. MicroUSB 2.0 port is at the bottom, while the headphone jack is at the top. The screen on the front is a 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The Super AMOLED panel gives astonishing 515 ppi pixel density.
