Poll results: Samsung says the Galaxy Note 4 is "the best large-screen phone" - do you agree?

Not long ago, Samsung released a video commercial - seen above - which ends with this statement: "the best big-screen phone just got even better." Naturally, the statement’s about the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung’s latest flagship handset, which is available around the world since early October.

After seeing the commercial, we wondered if you, our readers, agreed with Samsung. So we ran a poll asking you: is the Galaxy Note 4 really the best large-screen phone out there?

The poll results are now in, and - perhaps unsurprisingly - most of you believe that the Note 4 is indeed the best extra-large handset right now. There were 3432 people (81.04%) who answered the question with “yes,” and only 803 (18.96%) who said “no.”

Of course, our own Galaxy Note 4 review concludes that it’s hard to find a better large-screen smartphone than Samsung’s handset - though this doesn’t mean there aren’t worthy alternatives out there.

In case you didn’t get the chance to vote in our poll while it was still active, you can share your thoughts about the Galaxy Note 4 in the comments section below.

I know right, especially when the names of the categories already suggest that they are meant to repel the Note 4, a high end large screen beast with amoled display and running Android. xD

That's funny, because pretty much all the reviews so far seem to indicate that it could.

Is it the best in the small screen category as well? Can Chuck Norris kill two stones with one bird?

Well, I wouldn't call it the best in the looks nor audio output, as it has only a single speaker on the back. It's the rear I don't like about the phone, but who cares...that is just subjective.

The rear can be changed out. But I agree on the audio output.

Me. I played with one and was surprised at the scrolling lag in chrome compared to the other recent flagships I've used. Typical optimized TW, hah.

How many apps do you have installed? All Samsung phone lag in the app drawer if u have so many apps installed that you create lots of screens. If you put the icons in folders, it means less screen draws thus far less lag. Try it. The iPhone also lags when you have more than 4 home screens. Even devices with Stock Android lag in the app drawer when you have more than 4 screens. Again the issue is when you scroll the GPU has to redraw the screen each time.

Thanks for illustrating what he meant about tech illiterate. Chrome is not TW.
