Disclosure: I received the product below to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
I remember my first cell phone being this big bulky phone that I couldn’t wait to get rid of. I wanted a smaller phone and for years I had one. Then last year I got the Samsung Note 3 in my hands and I couldn’t believe how I ever used a smaller phone. Yes the Note 3 is big but seriously once you go big its hard to go small again. So of course for my next phone I was so excited to get the Samsung Note 4.
Let me say I absolutely love my Note 4, it is a beast. It is a phone that I can do so much on which is especially important since I am on the go a lot with my three kids. My Note 4 is like a mini tablet to me that I can do work from, take pictures with and make phones on! Oh and yes it does fit in the pocket of my jeans, which a lot of people ask me first.
Features I love:
5.7 inch screen with more pixels per inch than any other display they have made – the screen size is perfect and its display is amazing.
S Pen included – this is a lifesaver for notes and editing. Sometimes I like to just write rather than type and the S Pen can be a lot easier and quicker for me. Its basically like a mouse for your phone and you can use it to highlight, cut, copy/paste or just doodle.
Amazing camera and bigger screen means bigger angle for pictures. It has a wide-angle 3.7MP front-facing camera so you can take crisper selfies or groupies. It has a 16MP rear camera with built-in Optical Image Stabilization – which is better than a lot of regular cameras! I love that I can take great pictures wherever I go whether I have my phone or camera.
Adaptive Fast Charging which makes my battery go from zero to fifty percent in about 30 minutes! As someone constantly on the go I need fast charging since I don’t have a lot of time to sit waiting for my phone to charge.
Ultra Power Saving Mode extends my battery which is great for when I do forget to charge it or I’m without a charger. This puts it in a special mode which limits what you can do but you can still make and receive calls and texts for up to 24 hours even at 10%!
Multi Window mode lets me open more than one app on the screen at once! Perfect for a multi-tasking mom like me! Below is a screenshot of a text message with my husband where I pulled up some dinner choices in the area while chatting with him! The possibilities are endless though you can split screen almost anything!
Customizable start screen. Okay most phones have a customizable screen but what I love about my Note 3 is that on my lock screen I can see the temperature and amount of steps I have walked. The steps aren’t always accurate for me since I tend to leave my phone on my desk rather than carrying it around with me.
Websites are easy to view and share:
S Heath which has lots of features built into it such as a pedometer, heart rate, oxygen saturation in your blood (there is a spot on the back of the phone you touch), UV ray tester, and more! It is amazing how much is packed into the app! I mean really a sensor on the back that you touch, no doctors or additional devices to attach. Now yes this may not be 100% accurate and its not a doctor, but for me its a start.
Usage Manager makes it easy to check your battery, apps and data usage. This is great to see what might be eating away at your battery or your data!
Fun picture editor! I am no artist but this makes it easy and fun to edit pictures. My kids especially love playing with this, but yes I do it too! Below is a before and after picture of my editing it.
Overall, I have been using my Samsung Note 4 for a few months now but I still find new uses for it and ways to make my everyday tasks easier. There is so much packed into this phone and I honestly cannot think of anything I’d add. With the Google Play and Amazon store, I have millions of apps at my fingertips and more are added constantly. It is amazing how one device can make such a difference and my Note 4 really has. I cannot say enough good things about the Samsung Note 4. It is a beast of a phone with so much on it that I feel I haven’t even scratched the surface on it.
BUY IT: You can check out the Samsung Note 4 direct from Samsung or look for it at your local cell phone or electronics store.
