phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 11 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • 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

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The large size of course means the phone is not the easiest to carry around, and handle
