Displays, designs and sizes
The designs of these flagships are very different and in opinion, the metallic look of the LG G3 is more elegant than Note 4’s faux leather from the back panel. The women will surely be more attracted to the LG G3, and the men will want the big black Note 4. But there also other variants of colors for the Samsung phablet: pink, white and gold. Both phones are using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect their screens.

Note 4’s hardware components are composed of a Krait 450 processor with 4 cores, clocked at 2.7GHz, which couples with an Adreno 420 GPU, while the chipset is Qualcomm Snapdragon 805.

The LG G3 comes with a Krait 400 processor, also with four cores, but clocked at 2.5GHz.
