For anyone who is into tech like me probably has heard about the whole gap-gate issue with these phones. I will honestly tell you there is gap but it clearly a design of the phone to make the curved edge of the screen more pronounce, honestly its looks great but I can understand peoples concerns. You can slide a piece of paper around the edge of the screen but I will talked about that more in the design part of this review.
I will keep the specs to a minimum, if your reading this review just scroll up and all the specs are right there and stated much better than I can describe.
I will start with all of the things that I do not like. The speaker being on back instead of the front or the bottom is very annoying and forces you to hold the phone around the edges if you are watching or listening to something. I have been using the finger print scanner since the second I set it up, its works roughly 85% of the time, I trypically have issues only if I have one hand available to open the phone, such as driving (dont text and drive by the way) or if im holding something. In this case Apple's touch ID is much better but once I got used to Samsungs version it got easier to use. As petty as this is...Samsung its time to redesign that hideous phone dialer. The Note 4 is the only phone that uses a micro sim card so I have to use my Note and iPhone on different lines, if you have one phone this wont be an issue but if your like me and have a few this huge issue.
Now that is out of the way on to what I do like
Display: The screen on this phone is absolutely phenomenal, I have the iPhone 6 plus which also has a beautiful display but Samsung has absolutely outdone themselves this time. The colors are vibrant, the text is insanely sharp. I watched movie previews on Flixster and I was completely mesmerized at the clarity. Dont get me wrong the iPhone 6 plus display is beautiful but right now nothing on the market is coming close to this display.
Call quality: There are no phones right now that are getting bad call quality. I did a conference call yesterday over the speaker phone and it sounded great. The noise cancellation apparently works fine because the caller on the other end had no problems at all hearing me dispite my loud office. The iPhone 6 has no problems in this area either.
Battery Performance: I didnt test by doing any sort of streaming video test but real world testing I can tell you the battery is beast. I am out the door for work around 0630 in the morning, I am in the military at a small base about 10 miles outside of Boston, the Soldiers in my section all work in different areas of the base or even in the city so we constantly communicate via text message and phone calls, I doubt 10 minutes goes by where I am not on my phone plus I have a Moto 360 connected to it, as well as streaming pandora, Facebook notifications and emails. I consider myself a moderate to heavy user. I get home about 6 pm and the Note is hovering around 40 percent. You may use your phone more heavily than me or maybe more lightly but I have no doubt this will last a whole day. The iPhone is no slouch either, the battery on that definitely lasts me an entire day. If you look for a phone based on battery life both of these will easily do the job.
Camera Performance: Now this is where Samsung really pulls ahead in my opinion. The iPhone 6 plus has a very good camera no doubt about it. But the Note 4 has probably the best camera on any phone out right now. If you compare the still shots taken from the iPhone and the Note on their resprective displays they look pretty similar but when you port them to computer screen thats where you really see the difference. The detail in the iPhone photos begins to fall apart, this doesnt happen with Note. The Note has also made their camera interface so much more simpler and less convoluted but its still not as simple as the iphone. You can also download tons of extra shooting moods. The 4k video looks amazing, especially if you have a 4k monitor or TV. 1080p video vs the iPhone I still give the edge to the Note but the advantage is far less obvious than it is with stills.
Design: As everyone knows by thankfully Samsung redesigned the Note with a more premium build. I will say this, this is the best looking Samsung device I have ever used!!! The metal with chamfered edges looks absolutely beautiful, as a matter of fact it looks so nice that I dont even want to carry it without a case. I ordered some cases but until they arrive this phone will not go into my pocket. I love the design even more than the 6 plus but I will also say that while is feels great in the hand, the 6 plus feels a little better because of the rounded edges. But when I have my iPhone out of the case it feels like its going to squirt out of my hands. The note display curves at the edges and that is why there is a gap but the design looks amazing you have to see it to understand what I am talking about. Personally if saw them sitting next to one another I would chose the Note especially the white one (I settled for black, the white was sold out). Which design you prefer is completely up to personal preference, they both look good good tho.
S-pen: I have read that most people never even pull this out, I personally use mines almost everyday. I take notes or copy and past. It is an incredibly useful tool. If you buy this phone you probably already know what you can do it so I wont cover them here, if not please go onto YouTube and check out some of the tips and tricks videos, the S-pen is awesome. I can literally redefine how and what you use your phone for. The iPhone has no such tools, there are some third party styluses but that isnt even close to being the same.
Conclussion: I could have written this review for another hour but noone came here to read or hear the same things you can get on Phonedog or on TheVerge's website or watch on MKBHD or Flossy Carter's YouTube channel, they are actually experts. What I will say is I have both the iPhone 6 plus and the Note 4, and from the perspective of an average consumer they both cost pretty much the same price. But with the Note 4, I feel like I am getting more than just a big phone, it feels like Samsung gives you more extra's even if you dont use most of what they offer. The iPhone 6 is great phone and does exactly what it promises to do, great design, good camera, easy to use...ect but in my opnion, the Note 4 beats it in just about every single other category. I didnt even cover things like multi tasking, I just think Samsung gives you more for your money.
I am currently using the Note 4 and the iPhone 6 plus as my daily phones, the iPad Air, the Tab S and the Surface for my work tablet. I have also this year, the HTC One M8 (still an awesome phone, give it a look if your on a budget), Lumia Icon and the iPhone 5s.
UPDATE: I have been using the Note 4 since the 23rd, I have only used my iPhone once because I forgot to charge the Note and I was running late for work. I found a few more things that I am really liking with this phone, the multi-tasking split screen is awesome. I wanted to send my mom 3 pictures that I took while I was out in Boston over the weekend and when I got home I was able to use the multi-screen function wiht the s-pen and just click and drag the pictures from the gallery directly into the messaging app which was awesome. Also I am now getting the finger print scanner closer to 100%, On the customer support front, my Galaxy watch recieved an update but I wasnt able to get it to connect to my Note 4. I called Samsung, they had me download an app so the technician could remotely access my phone and fix it from where ever he is at in the world, I know I probably sound like a noob right now but it that was one of the coolest thing I have seen, he work on the problem for roughly 45 minutes till he fixed it, so big thumbs up for Samsung tech support.
I've owned (and quickly returned or sold out of frustration with the below issues) the S4, S5 Note 2, Note 3 and now the Note 4, but as mentioned, it was always short lived and here's why.
Samsung NEVER includes wireless charging out of the box. Why? Because they make more money selling a replacement back to enable wireless charging (and they always make those covers; it's not an after thought, it's 100% intentional). From a business perspective, hey, I get it...But the problems with this are ones Samsung REFUSES to acknowledge let alone address.
First off, the wireless charging backs they EVENTUALLY sell for these devices (I'll get to that in a minute) add thickness to the phone so NO CASE WILL FIT THEM ONCE YOU GET A WIRELESS CHARGING BACK COVER. Thanks Samsung, now we have to choose, wireless charging cover, or a case...Thanks a lot.
Second, through the launch of all the Samsung phones I mentioned above that I've owned, NOT ONE TIME have the accessories for these phones, like the wireless charging cover, been available until weeks and usually MONTHS after the phones release (some select few are, but not many). So, you buy a case for the phone, then when wireless charging covers are FINALLY available and you get one...guess what, your case is now useless.
Once again, thanks Samsung.
I'm tired of this. Really, REALLY tired of this. I've ended up returning most of the Samsung phones I've purchased as a result of this, some were sold outside the return period.
Now I have the Note 4 and I'm seriously considering, AGAIN, returning this phone out of pure principal of the matter.
I keep buying the phones because I can really USE a great phone like this WITH wireless charging and the spare battery + charging "kit"; but I'm ALWAYS left hanging for MONTHS not able to "complete the package" that should have been in the box with the phone from the get go (with regards to the wireless charging back...spare battery kit, is fine to buy after the fact but MAKE IT AVAILABLE AT LAUNCH.
Tired of Samsung and their games with this stuff...It's getting REALLY old Samsung.
I can no longer surf or use data while talking on the Sprint network.
The Note 4 only has one radio. The Note 2 and 3 had two radios. At some time X in the future, Sprint will turn on VOIP and this will be resolved, but until that date, I will wish I hadn't "upgraded".
Operating only one radio avoids interference and extends the battery life. More so, this won't be an issue once the network technology is upgraded to support VOIP. I suspect these are the reasons for the change. Nevertheless, it really stinks that I no longer have the functionality I've frequently used and enjoyed for 2+ years. More so, I must have read 20+ Note 4 reviews and comparisons and no one reported this drawback.
Otherwise, I love the phone. I'm differentiating my review with one star in hope that others take notice and can be aware of what they're giving up before they make the choice to "upgrade".
