I had a chance to fondle the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 while at IFA a few weeks ago, and as far as Android devices go — it’s impressive! If you have been waiting to upgrade, then tomorrow is your day. Get ready to pre-order the most advanced and feature-rich Galaxy Note yet!
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a 5.7″ Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera with an Optical Image Stabilizer, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera, and Adaptive Fast Charging, so that the device “can go from no battery to 50 percent in about 30 minutes”.
The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in Charcoal Black and Frost White. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular will carry the Galaxy Note 4. Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy, as well as Amazon, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart will also carry the Galaxy Note 4. Carriers and retailers will confirm specific pricing, availability, pre-orders and specs.
If you pre-order your Note 4 between September 19 and October 16th, you can get a guaranteed trade-in of $200 on your working smartphone.

Beyond the device itself, worth noting are all of the cool accessories that Samsung has created themselves or partnered with others to bring for the Galaxy Note 4. I’ve included pictures of the new Mont Blanc covers and Digital Pens as well as the new (amazing!!) Gear VR.
So what do you think? Are you on board with the larger devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Or do you think that under 5″ is better for you? I’m still using a 6.4″ phablet, and I think that anything below 5.5″ is too small; this is right in the sweet spot for me! =)
