Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can be operated with a knife (Fruit Ninja is also a go)

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can be operated with a knife (Fruit Ninja is also a go)
Earlier this month, we showed you that you could easily play Fruit Ninja using a knife on the Sony Xperia Z3. Now, there’s a new video on YouTube which confirms - in case you were wondering - that you can do the same thing on another new and high-end Android smartphone: the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. What’s more, the video showcases the high sensitivity of the Note 4’s display: basically, you can fully operate the handset with a knife, and even the capacitive buttons work when the blade touches them.

Needless to say, the screen of the new Note isn’t damaged in any way after encountering the sharp knife (thanks to a Gorilla Glass sheet that’s protecting it). The video that shows it all is embedded below.

Widely available around the world starting this month, the Note 4 has the same screen size of Samsung’s older Galaxy Note 3 (5.7 inches), but its resolution has been dramatically increased to 1440 x 2560 pixels. If you want to find out more details about the handset, make sure to check out our Galaxy Note 4 review.

Best HARDWARE. The TouchWiz sucks.

No doubt about h/w as Sammy always offer a lot in their flagships and TouchWiz also offers loads of feature still I think it should be lightened.

"Best phone ever made. Period."

Samsung is a great engineering company, no doubt. I love the design of the Note Edge and the possibilities it opens up. Samsung deserves kudos for this.

But then Samsung poisons their own well by including KNOXturbation by default and locking many of their phones down, making them unfriendly to developers. For example, the Note 4 on ATT is locked down with a bounty out for root.

Meanwhile LG sales keep going up and up. In part because they keep the gimmicks and bloat to a minimum and are getting more and more developer friendly such as the bootloader unlock service that is in the works.

Samsung is a great engineering company run by morons.

Best Phablet maybe. I think think the Droid Turbo might have it beat for best phone however.

Fun stuff :) Unfortunately it also reinforces the belief that Samsung just has too many gimmicks going on with their phones.

I don't think this is a gimmick
Since its designed so you can use your phone with gloves on

Really? I thought this was a promotion for all the Edward Scissorhands of the world, showing that there was now a phone where they didn't have to wear gloves ;-)

Well, tell us a little bit more. What country, what carrier? Are you a developer? Have you had Samsung phones in the past? Do you like them? Do you have a preference for TouchWiz or stock Android/Lollipop?

You need a phone that has it all, good performance, good battery life, good camera and good ecosystem...
So choosing the right phone is something very important.
Is also very easy...
Just buy an iPhone 6.
The iPhone 6 does everything and does it all perfectly.

You should wait for the Nexus to come back in stock so that you can read the reviews first. The Nexus has a really nice Motorola design, but the design of the Note is good, too. If you want a nice camera, get the Note. The Note also has the S Pen. The screen on the Note is amazing. The best thing about the Nexus is the software, because it has stock Android unlike the Note which has TW. So if you really like hardware, get the Note. If you like the software, get the Nexus. Both are great phablets and you really can't go wrong with either of them.

Aaand another series of plain attempts to stop the inevitable. I'm sorry Shamsunk, theft is never a good decision for a long-term success.
