Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Battle Of The Phablets

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is just around the corner but will it manage to improve upon the king of all phablets, the Note 3?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – like every other Galaxy Note before it – will launch just before IFA 2014 kicks off, alongside handsets like the Sony Xperia Z3 and new releases from Nokia.

Galaxy Note 4

The Note 4 is also likely to be one of Samsung’s last big launches of the year as well as its last best hope of causing Apple’s iPhone 6 some headaches in the all-important Q4 period.

Fortunately the Note 4 stands a good chance of doing so –– Samsung’s Note handsets are always insanely good.

KYM Reviews Editor Paul Briden called the Note 3 “a stunning handset with plenty of power, a great screen, decent camera and days worth of battery life. One of the best multitasking smartphones around.” All in all, he loved it. That seemed to be the general consensus and over the past 12 months no-one has managed to knock the Note 3 off its thrown as the king of all phablets.

With the announcement so near, we thought we’d compare how the rumoured handset matches up with its predecessor, the Note 3.

Note: As always with these comparisons, we can’t guarantee all the information on the Note 4 is correct. It’s all from rumours, leaks and general speculation. It’s all a bit of fun and comparing what we think the handset will look like to the already well-established Note 3.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is rather large in the hand, it weighs 168g and the dimensions come in at 151.2mm long, 79.2mm wide and 8.3mm thick. But this is to be expected: it is a phablet, after all. It's also worth noting just how much bulk Samsung has managed to shave off between iteration One and Three of its genre-defining Galaxy Note series.

Galaxy Note3 Back

Galaxy Note 4

Leaked images of the Galaxy Note 4 published online earlier this week show that the overall design of the handset will remain largely the same. All of the ports and buttons remain in the same place as they were on Galaxy Note 3. The S Pen is still at the bottom of the handset on the left hand side and all the slots are in the same places.

S Pen

Another big change to the hardware comes with the addition of Samsung's Galaxy S5 heart rate monitor, which, in this instance, sits right next to the LED flash on the back of the handset, similar to where it is on the Galaxy S5.

The biggest change we can see in the leaked pictures is to do with the edging around the side of the handset, which in the context of the Note 4 will apparently be full on metal. Samsung has taken plenty of flack for its obsession with cheap plastics, so the inclusion of newer build materials this time around, while late, is a nice addition to an already hugely anticipated release.


Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 came with a 5.7in display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. That’s a Super AMOLED touchscreen with 386 pixels-per-inch. For its time it was an amazing display but times have changed quickly and now displays are available with much higher screen resolutions and more pixels-per-inch.

Galaxy Note 3 Left Bottom

Take the LG G3 – it uses a 5.5in QHD setup, which, if you’re counting, equates to a blistering pixel density of 534 ppi. LG was first out of the blocks with a QHD display, but Samsung has all but confirmed it will follow suit with the Galaxy Note 4 in September.

As of right now, there are two schools of thought about the Galaxy Note 4’s display size: the first suggests it will be a 5.7in QHD Super AMOLED panel. The second, more controversial theory says it too will be a QHD Super AMOLED setup, but claims the size will be shrunk down to 5.5in – the same size as the LG G3’s, ironically. Camera

On the Galaxy Note 3 there was a 13MP rear-facing camera. It also featured autofocus and an LED flash. Other features included dual shot, face and smile detection as well as image stabilization alongside many others. Video quality comes at 2160p at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps whilst there’s also a 2MP front facing camera for selfies.

At the moment it looks like the Note 4 phablet will feature a 16MP rear-facing camera. Rumours suggest it will also feature optical image stabilisation and a dual-LED flash alongside all the features the last camera had. Video can be filmed in 2160p at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps and there’s still a 2MP front facing camera.

2MP front facing camera

Software, Storage & Battery

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is now running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The Galaxy Note 4 is rumoured to come with Android 4.4.3 KitKat already on board plus the new version of TouchWiz. The redesigned TouchWiz (or Nature UX), which introduced a new, flatter design, debuted on the Galaxy S5 and will likely be augmented further for use on the Galaxy Note 4.

It’s currently unclear whether there will be any additional S-Pen features available with the Note 4; no doubt we'll hear more about this at launch. One area the S-Pen could be put to use is inside S-Health –– could we see somekind of gym, sports logger added that ties in with Samsung's line of smartwatches?

Samsung Lines

Storage wise the Note 3 is available in either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB versions. There’s also microSD support for cards up to 64GB as well. It’s thought the Note 4 will offer 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage options alongside support for microSD cards up to 128GB.

Nothing is currently known about Samsung's plans for the Galaxy Note 4's battery. Performance on the Note 3 was well above par, so any refinements – as well as the inclusion of things Ultra Power Saver Mode – could equate to some pretty HUGE uplifts in battery performance.

Conclusion – What To Expect

  • Better Display
  • Improved Imaging
  • More SD-storage
  • Bigger Battery
  • S-Pen Refinements

Tried Handbrake – didn’t like it – tried DVD Fab – couldn’t get it to work. But Pavtube is easy to use and free water-marked version a great idea to check it worked. The Mac version is DVDAid for Mac.

3. Click and go! It's just as simple as that.


If you have any requirements of outputting 3D (Anaglyph, T/P, SBS) or keeping multiple audio tracks/subtitles, you are suggested to try Pavtube ByteCop (Win/Mac).

Transfer content from your iPhone to Galaxy S5

This free tool makes it easy to get your contacts, photos, calendar, and other settings from your iPhone to the new Galaxy S5.

It's natural to dread the process of changing from iOS to Android. To begin, Apple does the inexplicable by holding your phone number hostage with iMessage, and getting your vital information from iOS to Android can be a chore. Then there's figuring out how to get your information out of Apple's ecosystem, and into Google's.

In the past, I have outlined how to actively sync both your iCloud calendars and contacts with Android, but for some, sticking with iCloud isn't preferable.

Samsung knows this, so it created a tool to help you transfer critical information stored in your iCloud backups to your brand new Galaxy S5. (Actually, this tool works with any Galaxy device.)

To get started, you'll first need to install the free Samsung Smart Switch Mobile app from the Play Store on your Galaxy S5.

After launching the app, select iCloud from the list of options. The service works by using your iCloud device backup, and transferring your information to the S5. If you're not comfortable with giving Samsung your Apple credentials, I understand. For this scenario, along with those who back up to iTunes (do people still do that?), Samsung has created a desktop tool to transfer your information. The tool can be found here.

If you are comfortable with entering your credentials, then by all means, proceed. After Samsung verifies your account, you'll see a list of recent backups for your iOS devices. Select the backup you'd like to restore to your S5, and wait for the information to populate.

Samsung will figure out how much information is in each category, you'll have the option to pick and choose what you want to be downloaded to the S5.

Depending on your connection speed, and size of the backup, this process can take awhile. I suggest plugging your S5 in, sitting back, and watching a video about setting up the fingerprint scanner on the S5, featuring Dan Graziano.

The app will alert you when it's finished and show you the content which was successfully transferred. After that, feel free to delete the app from your phone.

Mac Tips: Transfer MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG files to Galaxy S5 easily

Have problems playing MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG videos on Samsung Galaxy S5 with Mac OS X? This tutorial will show you the simple solution to fix the problem. 

Samsung had something to prove with its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, which was unveiled this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The battery is larger, the screen bigger and brighter, the processor quicker and the design altered. The first thing many people will notice is the display of Galaxy S5, bumped up to 5.1-inch, 432ppi display with a resolution of 1080×1920. All these features make S5 a great media player for watching movies on the go.

But the truth is that the S5, same as its predecessor, only supports certain specified video formats such as MPEG4, H.264, etc, you would met problems playing movies formatted in .mkv, .avi, .vob, .tivo, .mpg on Galaxy S5. And it could be due to one or more of the following reasons:

- Unsupported codec (e.g. AC3)
- Huge file size (that exceeds maximum 4GB file size)
- High bitrate (e.g. camera footage taken at 18-25mbps)
- Unsupported video format (e.g. *.vob format)

If you want to avoid the MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG video playback issues with Galaxy S5, an easy workaround is to convert them to Galaxy S5 compatible formats. Now follow this article; you will learn how to accomplish this easily within a few clicks on Mac.


Here I'd like to introduce iMedia Converter for Mac, a very easy-to-use BD/DVD/Video to Galaxy S5 converting program which comes with flawless video quality and quick conversion speed. It integrates many presets for Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S, as well as Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3; many other presets waiting for you to pick up. The Windows version is Galaxy S5 Video Converter Ultimate.

Tutorials: How to transcode MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG to MP4 for Galaxy S5 on Mac?

Step 1: Run this Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac as Mac Galaxy S5 Video Converter Ultimate; add videos.

You can choose to import videos or the entire folder by clicking the top left two icons.


From the drop-down list of Subtitles tab, you can choose the desired language you want to show in converted movie. You are allowed to choose audio track as well. (Read more: Subtitle FAQs)

Step 2. Choose format.

Click "Format" drop-down list and choose "Samsung -> Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4)" as the compatible MP4 preset for Galaxy S5 with best video quality.

Step 3. Customize video specs (Optional).

Click "Settings" to free change video resolution, bitrate(quality), frame rate and other settings. Note that if you need to get videos in smaller size (especially when you own a 16GB model), you are suggested to turn down bitrate settings; the generated video size could also be found in this window.

Step 4. Start Conversion.

You can hit the big red "Convert" to start converting MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG videos to MP4 with best video settings for Galaxy S5 on Mac. After the conversion, click "Open output folder" in the conversion window, or "Open" in main interface to quick locate the converted video.
Now, you can transfer MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG videos to Galaxy S5 for smooth playback on Mac without any problem. Enjoy your digital life!

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Release Date, News and Rumors

As inevitably as summer follows spring the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will follow the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The Note 3 came out last year and the Galaxy S5 has already broken cover, so it seems safe to assume that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will arrive before too long.

So far news and rumors about the device are pretty slim on the ground. We expect they'll pick up steam once the dust has settled on the Galaxy S5, but we have heard a few things, from the possibility of a 64-bit processor, to a curved screen and more.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date and price

So when will the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 be released? Apparently Samsung mobile chief Lee Young Hee told Bloomberg that it would be released in the second half of 2014, while the Korea Times claims it has been told the Note 4 will arrive at the IFA show in Berlin.

The previous three Galaxy Note smartphones were announced in the first week of September at the IFA show in Berlin, so there's a fair chance we'll see the new one then too.

There's been absolutely nothing about the price yet, but this is a premium phone so expect it to be at least £550 / $800. Better start saving.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 screen

First up, screen size. The original Note rocked 5.3 inches, the Note 2 showed up with a 5.5-inch display and the Note 3 pushed things to 5.7 inches.

Going by this logic the Galaxy Note 4 should come with a 5.9-inch display, which would see it match the HTC One Maxand LG G Pro 2, while still falling short of the 6.4-inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

Samsung's done well with Super AMOLED, but there's a suggestion that it might ditch the technology for the Galaxy Note 4 and use PLS LCD instead.

A report by ET News claims that Samsung is "considering" using the technology in future as it could apparently cut costs by as much as 20% by doing so. But Samsung is apparently only considering it in any case, so there's hope for Super AMOLED yet.

A more positive potential change is that the Galaxy Note 4 might have a curved screen, but not in the way we've seen on the Galaxy Round. Instead the bulk of the display would be flat but it would curve off at the edges so that there'd be no visible bezel.

This particular rumor stems from a patent filed by Samsung late last year, which shows a very Note-like device as the subject.

Surprisingly that rumor is gaining some steam, as ZDNet Korea is reporting that the Galaxy Note 4 might have a flexible display and that "industry insiders" claim it will have a three-sided screen, presumably allowing you to read notifications and the like from side on.

A new Samsung patent also shows a device with a curved, multi-sided screen and interestingly it looks as if certain apps or on-screen buttons, such as camera, email, settings and the back button will be lined up down one of the sides, giving you easy access to them without taking up valuable screen real estate on the front of the phone.

If this pans out then it will be a big change for Samsung's phablet flagship, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

As for the resolution, nothing's known yet, but with 2K (Quad HD) displays starting to emerge we wouldn't be surprised if one found its way onto the Galaxy Note 4, especially as it's likely to be one of the few phones with a screen big enough to benefit from it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 power

So far Apple is the only mobile phone maker that's using 64-bit chips, but Samsung is set on joining the party. Kyushik Hong, vp of marketing for Samsung's LSI business told CNET that Samsung is "very actively working" on 64-bit right now.

So, while we didn't see one in the Galaxy S5 there's a chance that 64-bit chips might make their Android debut in the Galaxy Note 4.

The Note series is usually where we see a bump up in RAM from Samsung, and with the Note 3 packing 3GB we could well see the Galaxy Note 4 rock up with a tasty 4GB under the hood.

Both the Note 3 and Galaxy S5 sport the Adreno 330 GPU, which leaves the door wide open for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to enter the fray with a beefed up graphical processor - could this be the best gaming mobile to date?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera

The Galaxy Note 4 might be in for quite the camera upgrade, as a report from ET News claims that Samsung is developing a 20MP sensor, due for release in the second half of the year.

With the Galaxy Note 4 also due to be released later in the year it seems a prime candidate to benefit from the lens.

The Galaxy Note 3 only has a 13 megapixel camera and even the Samsung Galaxy S5 has just a 16 megapixel sensor, so the Note 4 could be Samsung's best camera phone yet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 operating system

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will almost certainly run the latest version of Android, which is likely to still be Android KitKat.

Presumably it will also be overlaid with some version of Samsung's TouchWiz interface, likely to be very similar in form to the new version which adorns the Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 chassis

Samsung is still banging the plastic form factor drum with its latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5, arriving clad in the not-so-premium material.

With this is mind we're not holding out too much hope for an all-metal body on the Galaxy Note 4, although Samsung has reportedly promised a "new form factor" for its next phablet offering.

We'd put money on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 being dust and water proof (or at least resistant). It's a key feature of the Galaxy S5 so it's unlikely that Samsung would remove it for the Note 4.

Besides which Samsung has reportedly ordered a large batch of High performance In-Mold antennas, which are easy to waterproof. They weren't in time to be used in the Galaxy S5 but Samsung must be planning on using them in something, so the Galaxy Note 4 seems likely.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wirerless charging

Wireless charging is starting to pick up steam but it's yet to hit the big leagues. That could all change with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as ET News reports that Samsung is working on an improved resonance charging solution.

Magnetic resonance charging is a kind where the device doesn't even need to be in contact with the charger, so it could have some extremely versatile applications.

There's no confirmation that Samsung's take on the technology will make it into the Galaxy Note 4 but according to the report it might be ready to go by the middle of the year, which would make the Galaxy Note 4 a good test bed for it.

S Pen improvements

It's the S Pen which makes the Galaxy Note series standout from the rest of the supersized smartphone crowd and with every iteration we see Samsung upgrade its capabilities in some way.

The inclusion of a stylus with a fully touchscreen smartphone is still a little hit and miss, but we're coming to accept the S Pen and the additional features it provides.

The S Pen's handwriting feature could be getting a whole lot more useful, asa patent shows it being used to launch applications.

The image filed with the application shows it being used 'call mom' by, well, writing 'call mom' on the lock screen, but it's easy to see how it could be used to open apps, send text messages and more.

What we'd like to see

As rumors are pretty thin on the ground at the moment here are a few things that we'd like to see from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

1. A premium build

Samsung has stubbornly refused to move away from plastic handsets and the faux-leather of the Galaxy Note 3 just doesn't cut it.

The perforated skin of the Galaxy S5 is a little better but we want to see a truly premium design from Samsung. Something which would make even HTC and Apple look twice.

2. Less bloatware

Sometimes less is more and that's a lesson which Samsung could do with learning. A cleaner, stripped back interface with less half baked features and more focus on the important things would suit us fine.

Or the option to just hide/delete any of theunnecessary apps like you can in HTC's Sense overlay - it's not much to ask.

3. A better battery

Samsung is leading the way with battery technology and the Galaxy S5 in particular looks like it should have a lot of staying power, but there's still room for improvement.

It might not be realistic to expect all week battery life from the Galaxy Note 4 but we want it to at least be able to last several days of moderate use between charges.

4. A QHD display
We're seeing smartphones boasting 1440 x 2560 resolutions over in China, but on screens ranging from 4 to 5 inches the improvements aren't exactly easy to see.

The big winner when it comes to Quad HD (also dubbed 2K) displays are phablets as their increased screen size makes the result appear a lot more impressive - and let's face it, we'd all much rather watch a movie on a Note rather than an iPhone.


5 essential Galaxy S5 Tips and Tricks

The Galaxy S5 is starting to spread out a bit now, challenging the HTC One (M8) for the favorite flagship title right now. The S5 may be outselling the M8, but the Xperia Z2 hasn't hit the market yet either, so here's a few tips and tricks for your Galaxy S5 to make sure you've got it running at peak performance in the face of some stiff competition.

Switch to list view in settings

The first time I saw the new TouchWiz settings menu I couldn't believe just how unwieldy and long it was, making it quite difficult to actually find what you want in the endless rows of irregularly color-coded round icons. The first thing to do is switch this icon view to the still-long but much better list view.
Turn on Power Saving Mode

If this isn't one of the first things you do when you get a new Galaxy device, it should be. First though, you want to familiarize yourself with the two power saving modes the S5 comes with. Ultra Power Saving Mode is an extreme case, road-trip, long-day, no-power, emergency-situation option that will largely cripple your S5's functionality in order to drag out lots more battery life. But it is not ideal for everyday use. The regular power saving mode is more reasonable, but you might want to enable background data and perhaps turn off grayscale mode to get the recipe just right for your needs.
Use Samsung's Toolbox

I'm a big fan of multitasking apps and hover features, as some of you will know, so it's probably no surprise that I think Samsung's clever little floating bubble, Toolbox, is great. Toolbox gives you quick access to your favorite apps from any screen and is a nifty little feature that everyone should be using. Just head into settings and turn Toolbox on, then drag the little triple dot bubble around to keep it out of your way, or tap it to open your favorite shortcuts.

Set up the finger scanner properly

Even though you might not have guessed it from my recent video on the S5's finger scanner, it actually does work relatively well if you just know how to set it up properly. What you want to do when you register your prints is hold the phone exactly as you would when you unlock it, so you swipe your thumb down sideways over the home button. This means the print the device registers is actually the one you'll be using to unlock it and not some awkward version that requires two-handed unlocking. 

Get your freebies

You may have forgotten that when the Galaxy S5 was about to ship, Samsung revealed the bonus that every S5 would include 500 USD worth of premium app subscriptions. Sure, more Samsung bloatware may not be your thing, but if you've got free access to some premium services why not take advantage of it while you can. If not permanently, just to have a look and see if you think it is worth the extra dough.
