Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Great design and build quality
  • Gorgeous, top-notch, high-resolution display
  • Android interface with Samsung's TouchWiz on top
  • The Touchwiz interface is now more polished, and has a lot of clutter stripped off
  • Fingerprint sensor, and the S Heath App along with the health sensors, add useful functionality
  • New S Pen features, and improved multi-tasking functionality, add to the productivity muscle of the Note 4 - no other phone comes close in this area
  • Top-notch speed/performance backed by great hardware
  • Very good camera, with optical image stabilization, and stunning 4K videos
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Excellent battery life
  • Quick battery charging
  • Excellent loudspeaker
  • Beautiful, dual-glass OmniBalance design - the frame is even sleeker than the Z3 and together with the new materials exudes even more luxury
  • Ultra-slim at 6.9mm
  • Light, and pleasant to handle
  • Water-resistant
  • Excellent display with rich colors and nice viewing angles
  • Xperia UI doesn't stray far from stock Android 5.0.2 Lollipop - it's simple and fluid, with some added features like Sony's small apps
  • Good speed/performance, backed by powerful hardware
  • Very good camera
  • Dual stereo speakers provide good, clean output
  • Good audio quality
  • Rich feature-filled multimedia apps for pictures, videos, music
  • Decent battery life
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The large size of course means the phone is not the easiest to carry around, and handle
  • Tends to overheat when put under stress (during gaming, watching videos, etc)
  • Gets hindered from operating at peak performance due to thermal throttling down
