Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Galaxy S5, brief first look


The moment that many Android device enthusiasts have been waiting for has finally happened. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has just been made official and specs and more are now confirmed. We’ll be bringing you much more about this phablet over the coming days and weeks, but for now we thought we’d share a video showing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs. Galaxy S5 in a first look.

Below this article we’ve embedded a YouTube video from Android Authority, who managed to get their hands on the new Galaxy Note 4 at one of the simultaneous launch events across the world. It’s shown alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5, with the metal frame being one of the most notable differences as well as its size of course.

The video offers a chance to get some nice looks at the Note 4’s aesthetics, and we have to say the Quad HD display looks pretty glorious. It’s pointed out that although the Note 4 benefits from the S Pen stylus, it doesn’t have the dust and water-resistant qualities of the Galaxy S5. Performance is also discussed, with the Galaxy Note 4 having the Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor as opposed to the 801 CPU in the Galaxy S5.

The video also compares RAM and storage of the two phones as well as mentioning the fast charging battery technology of the Note 4. The overview moves on to the camera capabilities, with the Note 4 featuring optical image stabilization and a newly-optimized ‘selfie’ front-facing camera. Finally the software of the phones is discussed, with a look at some of the new features available.

Although the video is only 5-minutes long it covers a lot of ground and makes a compelling case for the Galaxy Note 4 as an upgrade. The launch of this device is big news and you can read more about the Note 4 in our launch article here. Do check back with us from time to time as we bring you more on this notable new smarthone.

    the stylist opening pervented the waterproofing,which broke my heart as I expected dust resistance as well what a shame, a beatifull device and we’re not sure it will even have audio flac playback as s4 & lg g3. if it shows in afew days the complete specs and includes flac, it will be almost marvelous as they don’t want to acknowledge 128gb threshold on external memory, which I as a IT know SanDisk128GB will work on note 4, tho why not acknowledge that? As for myself it matters little at this point when it sells, I need authentication of specs which I already said will need 2 days at least Sony z3 will have to offer something outstanding because going up 2k on cheaper lcd ain’t gonna do it,also why stay at 3gb of processing speed when 4gb would have created real wows.This 2014 Samsung held way to many punches, A sad indictment for the company that promises to never slow down as holding back are the brakes to acceleration.I’ll still buy it with a sad heart only if FLAC is availiable
