Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was announced at IFA 2014 last month and now it has reached us for a full test and review. Below you can watch its unboxing and know that this flagship phablet costs around $800 on Amazon, free of contract.
This is a Quad HD phablet, that ditches the wooden pattern box for a packaging with the same format, but with a different printed pattern. It resembles a chocolate box now or a perfume box. Inside we find the charger, manuals, USB cable, headphones, plugs for the headphones, tips for the S Pen and battery. The Note 4 has a faux leather back, made of plastic, but without the stitching of the Note 3.
It comes with a metal frame and metal on the sides and measures 8.5 mm in thickness. The phablet weighs 176 grams and features a 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, a 2.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 805 CPU and 3 GB of RAM. There are also international versions with an Exynos 5433 processor inside, instead of the Snapdragon. We also get 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot, a 16 MP back camera with OIS and a front 3.7 MP shooter.
There’s also MHL 3.0, infrared and a 3220 mAh battery, with fast charging (from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes). We’ve got a fingerprint scanner upfront, a heart rate sensor at the back and a barometer inside. The Galaxy Note 4 brings a new S Pen with double the levels of pressure compared to the predecessor, reaching 2048 this time. Its camera can take 240 FPS video in slow motion and the S Pen now allows bulk picture and text selection with the press of its physical button.
We’ll be back ASAP with a full review.
