amazon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 reviews
Note 4 frame is made of aluminum, but not for reasons that aluminum frame covered with a smooth outer coating. The back shell of the machine is still using plastic imitation leather, but the suture line as on the Note 3 has been removed, the ridge is highlighted and more varieties of genuine leather. Thus Note 4 looks and feels very solid handle, rugged than that of the Note 3 plastic edging.
Machine with 8.5mm thickness at the center of the back and over 10mm at the camera. But the slim but by large, square design should still loud, difficult to stop and used with one hand. But every phablet are most comfortable using only the hands, saw the LG G3 can sense more comfortable to use than the Note 4, although the screen is only 0.2 inches smaller. Power button and volume rocker are placed on either of the side edges, the location easy to press.
The design of the Note 4 also has many interesting little details. Edges at the top and tail slightly larger than the body, hold the camera feels more comfortable. Front protective glass screen is slightly curved at the edges, just the Lumia phones or the iPhone 6, the screen feels more popular. Part of the camera still bulging against the body, but the flash area and the heart rate sensor is not concave like on the Galaxy S5, so put your finger manipulation easier sensors.
S-Pen stylus, the device features Note middle of the line just a little change in Note 4. The new pen thinner, but with the ridge on the body for easy handling and grip pen to hand over. About the size is slightly smaller S-Pen with people with big hands, but this is still the best stylus on the phone, with a lot of features only available on the Note.
Note 4 is Samsung’s first phone to be released internationally and uses QHD screen resolution (2560 x 1440), with 5.7-inch size for a pixel density of 515 ppi reached. With such a high resolution, the Note 4’s screen is very sharp, evident when viewing images with high resolution. Plus size, one can say Note 4 screen showing impressive.
Due to the use of AMOLED display technology, screen Note 4 shows very deep black, high contrast. Although the maximum brightness of the screen, measured in adjustment mode only hand over 300 nits, this screen still shows very clearly in the sun. If enabled, the auto-brightness maximum brightness can be higher, according to technology research firm Screen Display Mate reach 518 nits.
Another advantage of this handset is very wide viewing angle screen, looking at a very narrow angle (90 degrees), the color is still recognizable. But when viewed in the same direction but at different angles, you may notice the screen is a blaze of color, especially when the screen is on a white background. This phenomenon is not too obvious, but if you look closely, it is still recognizable.
Camera resolution of 16MP Note 4 is raised, the equivalent of the Galaxy S5 camera, but with optical image stabilization (OIS), which helps reduce vibration by the photographer when shooting hand, taking pictures. Note 4 camera front 3.7MP resolution, lens to f / 1.9. Machines capable of shooting up to UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) with the following cameras, and QHD (2560 x 1440) with front camera.
Samsung is doing pretty good camera interface, the external interface is very simple, just dial and shutter button and include a few basic buttons, but when you want to edit the details of the resolution, brightness, ISO, metering or white balance, you can also adjust the inside. The fact that the Note 4 has a lot to customize both for filming and photography, and many shooting modes available provided by Samsung.
We can say widescreen, high definition of the Note 4 is also an advantage when shooting, allowing users to use the visibility was about to shoot photos, as well as easy adjustment of picture elements more.
Regarding the quality of shots, we found the image quality of the Note 4 has many similarities with the Galaxy S5. Both machines are able to do very well when shooting in good lighting conditions, the machine started fast definition, crisp images and bright colors a little more than reality. Photographs also honest brightness, wide brightness range, and can shoot very good backlit with HDR shooting mode (HDR shooting speed of as fast as S5 Note 4). In good lighting conditions, the OIS feature of the Note 4 does not show a significant effect, because usually the shutter speed was very fast, less affected by the shake.
However, the Note 4 still proved to be overridden when shooting night scenes. When lighting conditions deteriorate, the machine automatically switches to night mode, with settings like ISO increase, prolong the shutter open for brighter images. Now new features effective OIS, which helps reduce vibration of hand by taking a long time. Note 4 also has multiple metering modes, allowing users to easily handle these situations with complex lighting.
Front camera 3.7MP resolution and beauty mode automatically, allowing users to take the picture of “take a selfie” pleasant. Note 4 has a pretty unique mode is Selfie wide angle (Wide Selfie), lets take a selfie join multiple photos into one image a very wide angle. Users also have the choice to take pictures with the camera before: click on the screen, press the volume button or touch sensors on the back of the heart rate.
Note 4 is capable of shooting high resolution in both front and rear cameras. OIS also features effective when shooting. In test footage below, we filmed while traveling on a motorbike, anti-vibration lens also effective, but can not completely eliminate vibration when shooting.

Note battery of 3220 mAh capacity 4, slightly higher than the Note 3. Despite sharp screen than the previous generation, the Note 4 is guaranteed to be the very good battery life.
The Note 4 is also integrated fast charging technology that allows charging from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes, and fully charged in 2 hours.
In addition to the hardware elements, points made his name as the main line of Galaxy Note special features S-Pen with the pen. S-Pen in Note 4 high sensitivity double the previous generation (2048 to recognize the different forces), thus recognizing the handwriting, also better shades.
When pulled the pen out of the phone, it will automatically show up four options, including quick notes, options, screenshots and notes. In particular, Smart Select is a new feature is added, allowing you to record screen images in many different applications to compare and share. In applications such as Gallery, S-Pen also allows select content faster, instead of having to click on each image, or when putting pen close to the screen, the machine will display information about the content more closely.
S-Pen can be used with features like a computer mouse: move, drag and select the contents of the letter. Samsung allows S-Pen can select content in all applications, including those applications not selected when the touch by hand, such as Facebook. After selecting the content, the machine also displays the option to further processing such as search or dictionary.
Samsung also improved some features had on the Galaxy S5. Sensors on the back outside heartbeat can measure oxygen saturation, the stress of users or intensity of ultraviolet (UV). Fingerprint sensor no longer require users to put finger swipe across the perpendicular when the Home button, instead the user can swipe horizontally or diagonal angle sensor which has received.
Because of the relatively large size, Samsung has provided several features for easy operation with one hand. In installing a hand operation, you can open the Resize mode screen (thumbnail display section only about 4 inches), typing with one hand (reduced size keyboard, the phone keypad, computer and pattern to unlock) and turn the key table (shown at right navigation keys on the screen).
