Samsung held their Unpacked Event for the second time this year to unveil the new products they had up their sleeve for this half of the year. Our eyes were on the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The event was held at IFA in Berlin, Germany. It was streamed across the internet and if you are into gadgets then you surely would have watched the event unfold.
There had been a series of leaks last week but the leaks can only tell you about the design, and not much really. Even after some photos over the internet, watching the event unleash was exciting. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the same basic design as that on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It looks a tad different thanks to the 2.5D glass that has a subtle premium curve and look to the model. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the inception of that moment Samsung does some good in build quality. They ditch that leather stitching and also the plastic round the edges. This new Note dude has a metallic edge and a matte soft touch back panel which is more like the Nokia way.
The phone has the same size as its predecessor as the display is still 5.7 inches. They have amped the resolution to Quad HD i.e 2560×1440 pixels. This is like having a 27 inch resolution from your desktop on your hands. This resolution on the Samsung SUPER AMOLED display supposedly gives the better feel than a standard LCD. I really have not seen it, but that is what Samsung claims.
Most of the features are more or less the same. They had more features to show off using the S Pen last year from Note II to Note III. This year, your S Pen has a new premium design but it does the same things it did last year- pull of notes, take notes, use S finder, scrap book and so on.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the latest and the greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. They upgrade to a 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization. The front camera lets you take a 120degree wide angle shot, basically increasing the dynamics for your selfies. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 also introduces a new feature that lets the battery go from 0 to 50% in 30 mins of charging. They surely have the same battery save mode from Galaxy 5 incorporated here. Yes it comes with v4.4.4 KitKat Android OS.
Apart from all these awesome upgrade of hardware there is not much Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has achieved. If you own the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, do not upgrade.
