Samsung Galaxy Note 4 versus its rivals: size comparison
Unlike its predecessor, however, the device will be faced against a pretty odd and unusual state of the market. A year ago, there was still a somewhat distinct frontier between flagship smartphones and the so-called phablets in terms of size, the difference between the two segments has been gradually diminishing. The status-quo has been broken and we have witnessed some devices boldly trespass into what was previously regarded as "phablet territory". Take the LG G3, for example - with its 5.5" display, it's just a tad smaller than the Note 4's 5.7-inch one.
Then again, members of the Note family have slowly increased in size with each and every generation, save for the Galaxy Note 4. This means that Samsung has unintentionally given its competition a chance to catch up in the size department. A number of current flagship smartphones can comfortably sit next to the Galaxy Note 4 without being overshadowed by the figure of the behemoth device. Let's see how it fares against the competition.

Slightly bigger, but well worth the upgrades!

Is it IP certified like the Galaxy S5? I didn't see anything about it and just curious to know.

am i the only one who doesnt feel excited for this phone? i mean its a good phone no doubt, but it didnt really excite me. i know im not going to be excited for the Z3 either considering its going to be a repackaged Z2.. tbh, i wasnt really excited for most phones this year. the only phone that has my attention right now is the Passport
8. buccob (Posts: 1429; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
What about the Z3 Compact or the Sharp Aquos Crystal... those are actually nice eye catching designs
9. DONUT (Posts: 307; Member since: 27 Jun 2013)
well yea, but they dont invoke excitement. rmb when the S2, Note, Note 2, G2 came out? those phones got ppl really interested (and curious). but this year the phones might push certain hardware/software boundaries but they dont really generate excitement anymore. but its probably because the market is so saturated

you are probably right but thats why I mentioned the Crystal.. definitely a fresh look, futuristic design and unique... though it remains a midrange device...
On the other hand I have stuck to my phone for quite a while now, so this new batch of devices got me excited particularly the Z3C since its going to be a phone the size of my current one but with a bigger screen and vastly superior hardware... just what I have been waiting

Innovation hit the wall..... don't see worth the upgrade.

It's a great phone, but i feel like pretty much every manufacturer could come up with the same thing nowadays.

Why does the Note 4 look taller than the Note 3 here if the specs says it's shorter?
13. GTRagnarok (Posts: 6; Member since: 22 Aug 2014)
Whoops, never mind, it's supposed to be taller, not wider.
