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

In a recent commercial released by Samsung Mobile USA on YouTube (and embedded above), the company showcases some of the Galaxy Note 4’s features (Quad HD screen, S Pen, multitasking, enhanced cameras, etc.), concluding that, with the new Note, "the best big-screen phone just got even better."

We already reviewed the Galaxy Note 4, and we’re convinced that this is one of the best large-screen smartphones ever. But is it really the best of them all? This certainly depends on what each of us wants from a smartphone. Some may prefer iOS or Windows Phone over Android, some may not like TouchWiz, and some may just want their big-screen phone to be even bigger than the Note 4. With so many different tastes out there, we wanted to see if our readers agree with Samsung’s statement - thus, we created the poll below. Cast your votes, and feel free to use the comments section if your answer is more than a simple Yes or No.

Is the Galaxy Note 4 the best large-screen phone?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 slays all other large screened phones. Without a doubt. It isn't just another 'large-screened' device.

so that sets for you the better device? the unfounded influence of Apple has gotten bigger than expected maybe due to its large screen. I actually expected that, I was once looking forward for a large screen iphone. I actually like iphone 6+ and would actually buy it if not greatly spoiled by Note 4's better display, features, louder speaker, arguably better design, android's flexblity, better camera, better battery, and of course the nifty S-PEN :)

You seriously just linked the results to a poll done with 437 people. I'm not even going to say more.

koreans all want removable batteries, this poll is flawed. All my korean friends who looked at my m8 asked me if the battery is removable

350M people last year preferred Samsung phones vs Apple selling only 150M. See how that works? Last year Apple has 4 selling models and only sold 150M while with just 2 models the S4 and Note 3 Samsung sold over 150M. Again, see how that works? 1.3BILLION people prefer phones running Android vs 700M using iOS. See how that works? 1.2Billion prefer Windows, over 128M who own Macs. Hmmmm! Again see how that works? Who cares what one group of people prefer? Does such a small group represent the rest of us? How many people live in Korea? How many can afford to even own an iPhone? Hmmm. How about more people in the USA buy iPhones in one state than the whole country of Korea. Again, see how that works?

It would be the best if it would have looked better and if touch Wiz wasn't so bad. The phone looks like one of those Chinese knock off phones. The metal on it even feels like plastic for some reason

Most definitely it is the best, until the Nexus 6 comes out... But for now, long live the King!

Nope, not the best. But one of the uglier ones out there, for sure. The camera has a better dynamic range than the GS5 and the Note 3, but it is still noticeably worse than the iPhone 6 +. The iPhone 6+ also has the best fingerprint scanner in the industry.

You do realize that blind camera pictures were posted and the Note 4 won...right? The 6+ doesn't take the best pictures with last years camera. You sound like a guy who thinks he can drive a race car simply because he can drive a car. Just dumb!

Apple said 3.5 was all we needed.

in the same mouth they said 9.7 was the best and that everyone would stop making small tablets to make big ones. Then they said they couldn't make a small tablet that wasn't a POS. At least they were right about something. The iPad Mini is a POS.

The note 4 has more features than any other phablet in the market. On the other hand, Apple only made a big Phone with reachability and landscape mode(and a couple of phablet optimized apple apps) but it may end up getting more 3rd party phablet optimized apps than the note 4.

in this commercial, Samsung only said the best screen which ever put on thier smartphones. So they didn't compare to another , then the result is up to ur eyes to judge.

Note 4 would be the best large-screen phone if it weren't for TouchWiz. Since that is not the case, I think the Nexus 6 is the best large-screen phone...
