Brother, sister, father, and Reggie Watts, they know how to Note: Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 ads
Whether you can relate to a grumpy brother, self-conscious sister, busy father, or the imaginative sound loops of comedian and voice talent, Reggie Watts, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can cater to all of them.

The Galaxy Note 4 is arguably the best device Samsung has put out this year, and there is a lot to like about it. The camera is superb, the display is riveting, and the S-Pen is remarkably functional and easy to use.

Samsung’s marketing juggernaut has no shortage of talent or creativity, and it has been providing entertaining video promos of the Note 4 on a near daily basis for that past two months. In that time, Samsung has effectively shown off many of the Note 4’s considerable capabilities.

You can thank TouchWiz for all those goodies. While it is still not a perfect execution, as we outlined in our review of the Galaxy Note 4, it is more than offset by overall broad feature set, beautiful display, solid performance of the hardware, and excellent camera.

Listening to little Johnny describe of tribulations of his family is thoroughly entertaining, and Reggie Watts lets the sounds rip while we watch the Galaxy Note 4 in action.

Financially yes. But product wise NO ! As far I see there hardly anything right now which Note 4 isn't best at. The best colour accurate 2k S-Amoled display. PERIOD Great battery life with fast charging (I know Z3 lasts longer but it takes 4 hours to charge fully!) Better camera then anything released this year so far. OIS, Fast Focus, HDR in video recording, etc. to name few features. We all know it even won the blind camera comparison. TouchWiz's abundant features MultiWindow, UPSM, etc. Also loads of free bundle. Loving the free economist subscription. S-Pen Samsung has always been great on updates too. All that with great built quality which doesn't sacrifices a removable back cover or a MicroSd card slot.

You forgot they released the perfectly specced phone for a minority that likes phablets. 2015 will be really hard for Sammy. HTC will be coming out of the beta phase that M8 was for the dual camera with some amazing looking again. LG will screw samsung even more with G4 that will be amazingly well priced. Xiaomi will dominate Asia even more. Lets see if Sammy puts some brains and makes the S6 full metal and polishes the horrible touchwiz.

meh full metal isnt necessary.. we need build quality and samsung is always looking at that, YES ALWAYS. just visit the bend test for all flagships and samsung managed to be on top even with the so-called poorly built PLASTIC phones.

LOL what minority ?!?! It sold 4.5 million units just in the first month. Also, the market of phablets is far from minority since apple sold quite a lot of iP6+ too inspite of its issues. Like it or not people are moving towards a trend of huge phones. LG has already screwed up its amazing LG G2 by releasing a not so worthy successor. The design of G3 is not at all good and also the display is just horrible with poor battery life.

The EXACT same was said about the m8 and G3, that the m7 was the end of the megapixel era and the start of the ultrapixel one and that it will write the downfall of the Galaxy S series, and how the G3 will crush the S5 after the so called great G2 LG has earlier produced. And guess what, both failed MISERABLY!! Will the m9 be a great device? I am pretty sure it will be a beast with the best design within the 2015 flagships. Will it beat the S6 sales? Not in a million years, HTC's last chance to dominate was the One x, poor marketing and screen/motherboard issues killed those chances and they had to sit back and watch the rise of Samsung with the Galaxy S3. As for the G4, i don't think it will manage to be better than the S6, Z4 and m9, simply due to one reason, LG always focuses on Samsung phones, they don't look as independent as HTC and Sony when creating a phone, where both have their own unique identity, which can't be said about LG.

@Martin_Cooper, why do you always talk from your rear end? LG will screw Samsung with an imaginary phone yet to be designed yet alone produced and released?? HTC coming out from beta phase??? Xiaomi will dominate Asia???? Samsung already dominates all of them. LG, Xiaomi and HTC has NOTHING now to beat Samsung Note 4. You confirmed it yourself when you said the Note 4 is "perfect"! duh!!!

But Note 4 camera is 16:9. To me it means it's unusable.

26. maherk

Wait until Sony goes with 16:9 then we'll read how much you love their cameras. Again, you NEVER said 1 thing good about a Samsung handset. How sad!!

27. ArtSim98

Posts: 3535; Member since: Dec 21, 2012

Lol WTH xDDDDDDDDD Sony will never go 16:9 if they do I'm simply not buying the phone. 16:9 is horrible it cuts such a large amount of the field of view. Impossible to fit all I want in one picture.

How about just cropping the picture...? Even after doing it Note 4 has superior results compared to competition.

31. ArtSim98

Posts: 3535; Member since: Dec 21, 2012

LOL are you serious? Cropping that 16:9 shot into 4:3 would cut the field of view even MORE. And a LOT more. N4 may have slightly more details than Z3 for example, but Z3 is 4:3 and with a much wider lens. Also Z3 better in low light.

33. Lememurilo

Z3 isn't better in low light...

lol....its far from being 'unusable'.....stop with the biased exaggeration. Just look at both this pic and tell if the difference in FoV is really that significant ! (Z3 is cropped to 16:9) Note 4: Z3: There is hardly any difference. No need to exaggerate your claims by saying 'unusable'. And lets face it where are you actually going to watch the pictures you take ? Most likely you'll either watch them on your TV, smartphone or laptop all of which are mostly 16:9 ratio. Now come up with a better argument rather making an issue out of nothing

42. ArtSim98

For me it's unusable. Look even in that image the Z3 shows way more stuff on the left. In close ups and indoor photos the difference is even bigger. Yes I watch them on 16:9 screen. So what? The picture looks a lot better in 4:3 and if I want to get closer then I just zoom in. However in 16:9 I can't just zoom out to see over the edges... Even all "real" cameras have 4:3 sensors.

46. Ashoaib

but you have an option in camera settings to choose 4:3 or 16:9, so what the problem? note 4's camera interface is feature rich

47. ArtSim98

Posts: 3535; Member since: Dec 21, 2012

Because the sensor is 16:9, so if you change it to 4:3 it just crops the sides of the pictures limiting the FOW even more.

48. tech2

Posts: 3487; Member since: Oct 26, 2012 can't be serious. No way Note 4 is missing 'more stuff' even if it is just take a step back and take a picture. I am sure a decent photographer wouldn't mind taking an extra step backward he/she is getting a much better camera. Also in indoor pics the difference will be lower not bigger !! by 16:9 aspect ratio i meant you won't have black bars on ur device. And thank you for teaching me that I can even zoom in on photos, who knew. Infact, many of my professional photographer friends crop the photo to 16:9 ratio just so that they can share it online (and viewed on 16:9) ratio and also most of their customers demand photos in 16:9 ratio. Anyway, just stop living in denial. You are really making an issue out of non-issue and even if it is it may only apply to you as not many would want to zoom in on photos and would rather enjoy an immersive experience. Also, in my original comment I talk about objective points whereas your point is completely subjective and it only applies to you. even I can say I don't like the slipper and smudgy glass feeling of Z3 but then again its subjective and not objective. Lets stick to practical points here.

But at the same time, they put out their best device ever, and the best one on the market.

Facts don't agree with you. This year was horrible. They lost so much money in profits while Xiaomi, LG are doing better than ever.

Not surprised to see you on a Samsung article hating on them. You need something better to throw your enthusiasm at buddy.

"Lost so much money" and "in profits" is a contradiction.
