Samsung infographic compares the Galaxy Note 4 to the Note 3, Note II, and original Note

Samsung infographic compares the Galaxy Note 4 to the Note 3, Note II, and original Note
Back in 2011, when Samsung released its first Galaxy Note, many were skeptical about it, and didn’t believe that such a huge handset would have an impact on the mobile industry. Most people still wanted pretty small smartphones - like the 3.5-inch iPhone 4s.

But here we are, in 2014, when the fourth-generation Galaxy Note is almost ready to be released around the world - following its official announcement from earlier this week at IFA 2014. Samsung sold tens of millions of older Galaxy Notes until now, so the expectations for the new model are set high. 

Undoubtedly, the Note 4 is a very important device to Samsung, so the company took the time to make an infographic (seen below) that compares it to the older models: Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note II, and the original Galaxy Note from 2011. As you probably already know, the Note 4 brings improvements in almost all departments over the Note 3, and it's in a totally different class when put next to the Note II and the original model.

While all the new features of the Note 4 may not be enough for some Note 3 owners to upgrade, this is certainly one of the year’s most advanced handsets, and we imagine that a lot of customers will want to get their hands on it. Unfortunately, most people will have to wait until October to do that, because that's when Samsung will launch the Note 4. Until that happens, you may want to check out our hands-on time with the new Note here and here.

I remember thinking how pointless the original note was, glad to be proven wrong.

I remember people I know laughed when I carrier the original Note and they favor the IPHONE and they carrier s5.

Note 4 is tugging at me

Same, but not a fan of phablets, just a bit too big. Hoping I can wait long enough for the the Galaxy S6 if they follow the same design.

Do you like the s5?

S5 isn't even that much smaller. S5: 142x72.5x8.1mm Note 3: 154x79x8.5m Screen to size ration is much higher than S5.

Don't like how the S5 looks and feels. The main draw to me is the new metal band they added to the Note 4 and Alpha. Note 4 is too big for me, and Alpha's specs are too low.

*speaker . It has a single mono speaker , the top one is just an ear piece (dam) but moto says they have boosted the output.

64 bit makes not much of a diffrence from 32 bit. it's gonna be everywhere someday as it's the case with laptops but it only offers slight improvements on a smartphone as many 32 bit androids can easily top the 5s

How easy is it to remove AT&T bloat from a Samsung device? Haven't used a carrier device in a long long time. Want to get a Note 4.

Depends if TowelRoot or another root method is available. Without root, it is impossible to remove all the bloat (depends on your definition of 'bloat' of course).

44. wilsong17 unregistered

Sir most of the app can be disabled without root.. now of you want to deleted them forever you going to have to root

Note 1 is actually in jelly bean 4.1.3 or something like this...

And what is wrong with the JB, iClown?

And you just assumed he is an apple fan. you are idiot.

20. g2a5b0e unregistered

Wrong. The OG Note was upgraded to JB 4.1. The rest have KitKat available. The chart only shows what they debuted with.

This infograph actually isn't helping Samsung sell the note 4 if you already have the note 3. I just may hold on to my note 3 seeing as the note 4 comparatively really doesn't bring much to the table. The cons 1. Same 3gb ram 2. 4 is taller than 3 3. 4 is thicker than 3 4. 4 is heavier than 3 5. 4 has just a tiny increments in battery mAh (20) 6. Microsd capacity is the same 64gb 7. Still not sure if exynos version is 64bit capable The Pros 1. Higher Res screen 2. Expected improvement in chip architecture 3. Higher mp camera with ois 4. Better feel and look with the metal frame/design 5. New/extra hardware & software features (note 3 will eventually acquire some of the software advantage) Yes, I'm nitpicking and for the premium price of this device, I should be.

128GB microSD card works fine on my note3 and i would assume the same for 4

16. The-Sailor-Man

I'm sure it can work with 128GB SD but, are you sure that it can hold more than 64gb on this card?

35. engineer-1701d unregistered

yes it can

BS It brings much to the table. And you know that iboy. From your cons. 1. Same 3gb ram - So what? 2. 4 is taller than 3- yup, 2mm LOL 3. 4 is thicker than 3- yup 0.2mm LOL (still much thinner and narrower than Note 1 and 2) 4. 4 is heavier than 3- yup, 8gr LOL (still lighter than Note 1/2 but with "premium metal") 5. 4 has just a tiny increments in battery mAh (20)- So, 7% more battery life is cons? Right? 6. Microsd capacity is the same 64gb - is that cons? What if can run 128gb ? 7. Still not sure if exynos version is 64bit capable. LOL LOL LOL who cares about 64-bit except of you iboys (even with 1Gb RAM)

1. 3GB of RAM is starting to be a bit constrained for touchWiz running devices, especially the note which got more features than the S line. 4GB could be more than useful. And many people were eager for this and rock-sure it will arrive with the note 4 - a dissapointment for them. 2,3,4. Going to a thicker and heavier device with thicker bezel is generally considered as going back into the past and makes your device look outdated. http://gambargadget.info/samsung-galaxy-s5-vs-s4/ It happened with the S5 an on that image it looks like a bigger mid ranger compared to a flagship.... Getting it ? 5. You are talking about BS but you will happily eat samsung marketing talk. It was ~ 25 % with the note 3 compared to note 2 and far less of a actuall difference between the two... Now because samsung pulled off just "7,5%" better battery life, which is probably the most ideal condition, I wouldn't be surprised if it would actually lasted less than the 3, as there is no hard battery capacity to back it all up. 6. Right 7. Definitely isn't.... If yes there would be 64-bit all around the booth and 64-bit samsung ads already airing on TV... And btw "Who cares for 64-bit" is rather silly, as entire mobile industry does right now.

"3GB of RAM is starting to be a bit constrained for touchWiz running devices, especially the note which got more features than the S line." I'm sorry, but that is the biggest load of bull I've heard. The Note 3 didn't necessarily need 3GB of RAM, although I'm glad it's there. No way in hell 3GB of RAM is "constraining" even on a Note Touchwiz device as you put it. Provide some proof for that or stop spouting garbage. 4GB of RAM on mobile would be completely unnecessary at this point.

I read this and thought how is it possible for someone to type a comment and be that serious? That was BS all over lol. +1

48. g2a5b0e unregistered

No doubt, Smurf. There would be no discernable gain putting 4GB of RAM on a 32-bit device at this point. Show me someone who is regularly maxing out their 3GB of RAM on their smartphone & I'll show you someone who needs to be on their desktop.

LoL at the samsung lovers fighting Apple lovers...you are basically the same marketing based consumers. HTC and Sony (and now Huawei and Lenovo) is where the quality is.
