Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Specs and Features Compared

0

Samsung Electronics Company recently released its newest palette in the form of Galaxy Note 4.

According to its upgrade, it is self-evident that Samsung wants many people to buy the device and preferably advance from its predecessor, Note 3. Most Samsung fans, of course, took the option and switched to the newly launched Samsung Note 4.

However, Galaxy Note 3 is still a cute nifty phablet, thus worth considering how much it matches to the Galaxy Note 4 before you jump into buying the new model series.

Design/Build

During its launch event, Samsung did not push much about the build of the Samsung Note 4, but notably, the device has a metal frame wrapped about its edge. This gives you a plastic feel to the model series, a feature that most critics and consumers have criticized Samsung about. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 also has a metal edge, but the feel is a bit metallic.

Processor

The previous Galaxy Note 3 has a Snapdragon 800 processor or Exynos Octa 5420 depending on where you purchase it from. Unsurprisingly, the latest Note 4 makes a noteworthy advancement with its Snapdragon 805 processor and Exynos 5433. The only disappointing thing about the new device is that Samsung Note 4 does not embrace the 64-bit processing, mostly in the Snapdragon edition, which is largely accessible in Western markets.

Camera

Galaxy Note 3 includes a 13–megapixel antenna with LED flash, while its successor comes equipped with a 16-megapixel Sony antenna with LED flash and optical picture stabilization. The Note 4’s front-facing camera has an f/1.9 lens and shoots with a much wider angle. This is useful for capturing those groups selfies you love. And if the group you have is big, then there is also a panorama style for front-facing shots.

Software

The latest Note 4 has had some significant advancements to its power saving functionality. It is also slightly lighter on bloatware than its predecessor’s iterations of the operating system. The new G4 also gives new notification aspects and is generally an upgrade on an Android user interface in the G3.

Display

Samsung is well-known for the quality it produces on its displays. The Note 3 screens were very well received after its release, but the latest G4 significantly upgrades on even the lauded quality. Whilst the G3 has a 5.7 inch, Super Amoled screen with 1,920 x 1080 pixels, G4 ups the ante further. It features a Super Amoled screen with 2,560 x 1,600 pixel display. Many people deem that this is a good mass-market display in any phone, and it is arguably a convincing reason for advancing to the Samsung Note 4.

Color

The other interesting change the G4 has brought is the many colors to choose from. While Samsung Note 3 has only three colors: black, white and pink, the new G4 has added the fourth color, gold.

Conclusion

The G4 is a major improvement of the G3. This is instantly apparent once you hold the appliance, as its appearance is much superior to its standard looking predecessor. The plastic feel is on the G4 is also evident. Whilst it does not blow G3 away when it comes to performance, the many improvements and extra functionality evident in the new device make upgrading worthwhile for many users.
