The iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are two of the most capable smartphones that have been released to the market in recent days. Both run on different operating system platforms, and have different strengths and weaknesses. In this article, we look at 3 areas where the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 outsmarts the iPhone 6.
Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen
To most people, the most outstanding feature in the Samsung galaxy Note 4 was its superb size. These were the days when ‘phablet
’ was still a new concept that a lot of people were grappling with. Although the concept itself was subject to critical ridicule, it was further reinforced by Apple’s announcement that it would release a similar-sized device in the iPhone 6 Plus. Since then, the Galaxy’s size was no longer a unique feature. But the S Pen hasn’t been outperformed by the iPhone, thus its appeal stands out. The Note 4 S pen was quite a new experience even to seasoned Samsung device users. The fact that it was closely integrated with Android for a smoother experience meant it was a better feature for most users. The S Pen offers precisely quick on-screen navigation, and makes it much easier to control the device, clearly outdoing the iPhone 6 Plus features’ pack.
Galaxy Note 4’s Multi-tasking
If you are looking to talk about a multitasking workhorse, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is just that. This device offers a cocktail of useful and unique multitasking capabilities, effectively allowing you to access multiple apps on the go. You are also able to shrink compatible apps to a smaller window using the Pop Up View
. More so, the multi-window feature makes it possible for you to work with multiple apps in split-screen modes. And it doesn’t end there! All these features are not common with the iPhone 6 use experience.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s Replaceable Battery Pack
Unlike with the iPhone 6, you can just easily snap off the Galaxy Note 4’s battery cover, extract its battery pack and place in a new one. The device’s large battery offers a whopping 36 hours’ worth of standby time, and 11 hours’ worth of non-stop internet usage. If you are a frequent traveller though, you’ll know that there are just those times when that one battery isn’t enough. So it helps to carry a replacement battery just in case of anything.
On a holistic level, the subject of whether the Note 4 beats the iPhone 6 is subject to debate. But in these three areas, the Samsung device clearly outranks the iPhone 6.
