6 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features that are nowhere to be found on the Sony Xperia Z3

0. phoneArena 03 Sep 2014, 14:42 posted on

We already checked up on how the Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact stand up to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in terms of unique functionality. But what lies on the other side of the field? Truth be told, a smartphone as feature-rich as the Note 4 has more than just six differentiating features...

To me the Sony Xperia Z3 is the best normal smart phone there is. Better than HTC M8 & the Samsung Galaxy S5...

The Phablets have 2 new kings & in my opinion the Note Edge is the better king just like the Ace of Spades is the best Ace!

The Z3 looks like a great phone, but if you are asking me, Sony isn't being aggressive enough with its updates lately. I'm not sure where their "incremental updates" strategy will end up, but at least the resulting phones are always good.

Z3 is by far the king of smartphones and note 4 and edge king of phablets . Everyone owns preference . But for me it's the z3c is the one to look out for.

I think this update is worth 6 months date coz z2 was also better than any other phone at mwc2014 and this is just an increment......I think they should concentrate on their xperia z ultra line to compete with note series

QHD shows now difference on a display under 5.2" except eating battery.
and all others are gimmick.
some features that could have made note 4 better;
ip certification
mhl 3.
3500 mah battery.

The S pen you pay the extra buck for; only decisive points as I see it are 4 and 6. On the contrary, I'd gladly save weight and money and do without heart rate monitor and finger print scanner...!

meh to these items.

QHD versus HD? I'd prefer phones stayed at HD for a while and gave us more battery life.
Stylus - LOVE the idea. In use - I rarely use mine. Maybe if the N4 is more natural.
OIS? YES PLEASE!
Fast Charging - VERY NICE!
Multi tasking and multi window - I NEVER use it.
Finger Print scanner? If it WORKS - great!
HR sensor? meh - I don't care at all if it's present.

What I WISH the N4 included was front speakers. I was hoping and hoping that would happen this time around. I think it should be illegal to put a single speaker on the back! lol

QHD surprisingly is not such a battery hog. A comparison was done with the s5 and koreas version of the s5(QHD) and the higher resolution s5 has very identical battery battery life.
(both have same battery size)

Sony didn't intend to impress phablets fans, I don't get why the insistence of comparing two different categories. Again the Z3 stands nicely against the other flagship smartphones.

Are you serious? These two phones are targeting different consumers, what's next? Comparing a car to a bicycle?

Haters are jealous. Some people will never enjoy the beautify of a QHD super AMOLED screen. They will never know what it's like to browse, type, Instagram, Facebook and watch movies on a 5.7". They'll never know how easy spen is when you know how to implement it in your daily life. Too bad just too bad, I pity some people. Tech is to be enjoyed, stop fanboyism and enjoy the best of tech irrespective of the company giving it to you.

But Sammy lacks the most at three major things : craftmanship, pride, and identity.

Honestly, it's always same soon plus gimmicks filling the list.

Sigh. You again? Craftmanship? At least they put metal on, for all you whiners. Pride? What made you think they aren't proud of their phones? After all of those sales. And identity. WUT. Seriously. Elaborate 'identity' in a way so it makes sense. At least you get a feature list. Unlike Apple which is so bare-boned on the feature list. Any more, iSH33P?
