The Overall Experience: Samsung's flagship phablet has received some important upgrades over last year's model. These include a 1440p Super AMOLED screen offering an ultra-sharp 515 ppi vibtant QHD display, an improved 16MP camera with optical image stablisation (first for Samsung), the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset with a quad-core 2.7GHz Krait 450 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB DDR3 RAM and a slicker build quality, which uses a metal frame and buttons.

Other useful features include a more tactile home button which doubles up as a finger print scanner, a faster charging battery and a flatter, more refined version of Touchwiz. Add to these the fact the device has all the latest connectivity technology, the SGN4 is as capable and future-proof a phone that money can buy right now and is a definite step up from both the SGN3 and this year's Galaxy S5.

How To Buy
 
 

Things to Consider

Though the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a modern ‘phablet’ smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone.  With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 4:

  • The plastic body of the phone is prone to cracking and scratching if dropped, put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector
  • The screen size is 5.7″ meaning that one handed use will be difficult for everyone but those with very large hands
  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a high-end phone and the price reflects that. The advantage of buying a high end phone such as this is that it is more future-proof i.e. has the spec to handle OS upgrades and more resource intensive apps in the future
  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 uses a micro-SIM
