The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with the same-sized 5.7-inch screen as the Note 3, with Samsung instead deciding to improve on the quality of the screen rather than its size.
The screen now boasts Quad HD Super AMOLED (2,560 x 1,440 resolution) technology that stretches to 500 pixels per inch. Couple this with what Samsung is calling an adaptive display – one that changes depending on the light of the place you are viewing the screen – and on paper you have the optimum viewing no matter what situation you are in.
To test the quality of the screen I watched a video that was shot in UHD on the device and it was stunning. Colours were vivid and detail popped out with the clarity you would expect from a 500ppi screen
One other big improvement is with the camera. When it comes to megapixels it’s gone from 13MP to 16MP but the innovations don’t lie in the meaningless megapixel chase but also in the camera’s f stop, which now clocks in at f1.9. In old money that means that the camera now lets in 60% more light and makes for better quality images.
The Note 4 features a USB 2.0 charging port instead of USB 3.0 (as was in the Note 3 and S5), in favor of a new feature called Fast Charge, which Samsung claims can charge the phone from 0% to 50% in about 30 minutes and from 0% to 100% in less than 100 minutes. It features some unique sensors such as a UV sensor and heart-rate monitor, among other, more common sensors.
The Note 4 packs a 3220mAh battery, which is just slightly bigger than the 3000mAh one in the Note 3 that didn’t overwhelm us with its staying power.
