Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge: all the new features
Both are phablets at their core, though, with around 5.7” displays (5.6” on the Note Edge) with a 1440 x 2560-pixel Quad HD resolution. Also, both are extremely powerful, with the latest Snapdragon 805 system chip on board (these are the first two devices from a known brand to feature the powerful chip). Add to that a nice 16-megapixel camera with OIS and you’ve got some truly alluring gadgets.
But what about their unique new features? Take a look down below to learn more.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge: all the new features
1. That wrap-around edge on the Note Edge comes with three main features
2. All new design: say goodbye to plastic, welcome a premium metal frame
3. Snapdragon 805: a first
4. Rapid charging: charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes
5. 16-megapixel camera with OIS, and a Sony IMX240 sensor
6. Battery life: 7% better despite Quad HD screen
7. S Pen: better
8. Sensor overload: UV to measure sunlight radiation, SpO2 for blood oxygenation
Now, the blood oxygenation levels are a bit more scary and may alert you that you need medical attention. Still, the Note 4 is clearly not a medical-grade devices, so we do advise a second reading. Basically, blood oxygenation measure how capable haemoglobin is of carrying oxygen around your body.
9. Plentiful storage and expandable
10. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge release date

That Note Edge is seriously looking insane. The ticker feature will be bananas. I mean to have the scores flashing & scrolling will be super boss!

I was very excited about the Edge but i just watched a hands on review and they state it having no metal on it is plastic the original note 4 is made of metal :(

Great phone but i think the edge one is totally useless. The original note 4 for me...

I can already see a million cracked edges. Most of the time, phones fall on the edges.

But just buy a glass/sapphire screen protector
So if it falls on the edge only the screen protector shatters
Glass screen protectors are only about ~$10
I've only seen one sapphire screen protector which was $70, but there's probably gonna be more thanks to Kyocera/Apple

True. At least we can be thankful for this tech being pushed into the industry we love (not talking about porn either).

"useless"? I guess since you own one, you should already know huh
26. vincelongman (Posts: 1597; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)
To be honest I though it was useless as well when I first saw it
But after watching some hands on videos, I think could actually be really useful, especially if lots of third party devs support it as well

I really wish the Spen would get a virtual eraser on it. That would be dope, especially for artists on the tablets.

Product availability is spotty at times, but you can get an S-Pen with an eraser since the first Galaxy Note:

Galaxy S5 LTE-A and G3 Cat. 6 both sport S805...

They're surely having a rough day. Take care PhoneArena :)

Maybe they meant the first to be released worldwide from a known brand. AFAIK the S5 LTE-A and g3 Cat. 6 were not released worldwide.

dont be jealous bro... let the authors decide how to keep their website interesting

I don't understand why some people are complaining about battery life. Its 7% better than Note 3 which has 5 hours screen on time. Despite having QHD display these devices have more battery life.

Samsung's chip uses Cortex A53 and Cortex A57, not a7 and a15.

At last, Sammy got rid of the cheap plastic in his note series..!!
24. Astoni (Posts: 563; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)
If anything i'd get the note 4. the edge is cool and all but i think while playing games, watching a move and what not i will get irritated by the darn edge xD I prefer flats screens.

Man really would give up the metal surround for water resistance. I think metal is overrated. I've had two notes and never once said I wish this were metal. Plus I put it in a case anyways. I think Samsung went the wrong direction and spent way too much effort on the Edge and left the bread and butter Note lacking.

I will get the Galaxy note 4 not the note edge..
