Are you a Snapchat artist or Vine star? These guys are and they #NoteMyDay, their latest on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

People that are not into making Vines or passing along Snapchat images may not see the point in these videos. However, Rudy Mancuso, who gets millions of loops off his 6-second videos, and Shaun “Shonduras” McBride, who adds a creative touch to photo images that he blasts across the ether, provide a very interesting perspective to this active segment of social media.

To prove the new Galaxy Note 4 is not purely for productivity or mindless shenanigans, Samsung collaborated with this pair to share how they create their content using this new “super-phone” of sorts. Sharing their creation tips, Samsung, Mancuso, and McBride want you to #NoteMyDay.

Samsung's relentless marketing efforts aside, we came away from the Galaxy Note 4 very impressed.  First, the beautiful display is impossible to ignore, TouchWiz is handsomely supplemented by the S Pen which itself, works wonderfully.  Moreover, the 16 megapixel camera is extremely capable, an important feature for you budding Vine stars or Snapchat artists.

Shaun’s creation made its way across social media (and above), and Rudy’s final Vine has already been looped over 3 million times.  We embedded it below. What kind of creations have you made with your Galaxy Note 4?

Oh wow, I recognise Rudy from some of the hilarious Vines him, King Bach, Simone Rex, Alphonso Mcauley, Page Kennedy, Brittany Furlan and some others do. Great job by Samsung getting these two on board, these guys are huge on Vine, Instagram and Snapchat, Rudy has some hilarious clips.

Good for the artists. I am sure they can need the money they make with Samsung. Nevertheless, Samsung lags what the artists are good at: creativity. Furthermore, for me, the question "Does this ability justify buying a Note 4?" remains. In my personal opinion, the answer is no because Phablets (whichever brand) are simply too large devices. I am sure most people can agree with me on that. Phablets remain and will remain niche products (compared to phones around 5").

There's USA (7% of smartphone market as of 2013), and there's the other part of the world (93% of smartphone market). and in other part of the world 5.5"+ is very dominant. You will be surprised to see that 5.5"+ (Galaxy Note size) is very popular in asia, especially among first time adopter who don't have tablet.... even teenage girl in asia use the phablet.

I'm willing to virtually bet that EVERYONE will have a large smartphone in 2 years time. I may get attacked for this, but IMO there is no reason to have a small phone anymore. One handed use is in no way more of a benefit than what a phone like the GNote 4 brings to you. The Galaxy Note line specifically is only for people who want the best in technology. I gave up small phones I thought I needed in 2010. Now it's like Note or nothing.

wait till it starts heating up, turning off on its own, freezing and the battery dying too soon.

Yea you fail. Telling someone "wait till your phone starts messing up. And if it doesn't? You fail, Note 4 is awesome. Just deal with it OK?

I've had my Note 4 for a little over two weeks, still running flawlessly and only heats up when any other phone on Earth does; while charging and playing games. It's very smooth and the battery lasts forever. Where are you getting your facts from? They're way off base.

Me too. I love turning it the light to where the chamfers will shine and it will accentuate the 2.5d glass, its a beautiful phone. And then you turn on the screen and its almost flawless.

I agree. I do the same thing. It really is better than the rest. There's too many positives in this phone to mention. The dragging clipped images from the net to my scrapbook. Five floating apps while watching a video. The absolutely phenomenal pictures. The battery life. The 4k video. Then back to just how beautiful the phone actually is. Why would I waste my time with something else.?

I doubt any Vine or Snapchat stars ACTUALLY use Galaxy phones. The majority of the time Vine was actually the popular the android app was totally crappy and produced videos without syncing audio/video. And Snapchat for Android STILL produces unusably pixelated videos, and yet the ios verison does not.

Impressive. Went to the store for a demo of this phone and didn't want to put it down. Felt so good, especially the cold metal sides and the back feels good too.
