Samsung Galaxy Note 4

By

I recently upgraded my Iphone 4S to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. For what it's worth, I think this phablet is awesome. It has considerably more RAM than even the Iphone 6+, has a larger and better screen and resolution, is cross platform integrated i.e. with gmail, google + ect...and then, it has the S pen, which is pretty awesome as well.

I like the fact that it has a charger pad, a wireless keyboard and can be used like a laptop when out of town.

I'm less happy about the service plan choices. If this were offered on Walmart's unlimited plan, it would be unbeatable.

All in all, this phone blows the Iphones out of the water in performance.

Love my Samsung also, but I think I'll go for the iPhone7... Just because it sounds lucky!

Both have advantages. I think if you use it mostly for work, the Galaxy Note 4 may be a better choice. Thanks Mark and Pete for the input!

Walt, I just upgraded to the Galaxy S5 and feel the same way, it blows the iPhone, and the camera is awesome.

The 16mp rear camera is one of the features I like too Joan.

Walt, I am not an apple gal. I have the Samsung phone and love it.  I do have an iPad but thus far have not used it for what I intended - Videos!  I glad you love the phone ... hopefully there will be a better plan at some future time.

Thanks Kathleen. I love it too. I was a bit suprised the other day though when I used my google map app. and it said it was still in beta.

Agreed that the success for Apple is in marketing not in quality. I have an LG G2 for a phone. It's as physically large as I want to get. The Note 4 is huge. Instead I recently went to a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for a tablet. I absolutely love it. Funny side note. I'm in toastmasters and one of my projects was to sell a product. I did a pitch for my tablet and upset some ipad users. One even came up to me and said she wished I had given my speech before she bought her ipad. The reason I picked the Note 10.1 is the stylus. I can go into our forms app and do a listing or contract completely on the tablet and they can actually do a real signature. (Note 4 is probably a little small screen size for this) I can then upload the docs to evernote and email them a copy without touching a single sheet of paper. Of course a friend told me he could have people sign docs on his ipad WITH THEIR FINGER!!! How professional. I've also taken my tablet to listings for a pre-listing walkthrough to discuss what needs to be done to list. I open evernote and take pics and can even take notes on the pics as I take them. Love it!

Yes Larry, the note 4 is a bit smaller. It can do all the things you mentioned, but with a smaller screen. On the plus side, you don't have to carry a seperate phone.

I love my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and am trying to start a user's group here on ActiveRain so we can all share ideas on how to best implement it's features into your real estate business.

I like the idea Jim. I use this phone exclusively for my Home Inspection Business. One thing I found fairly easy is to sync. contacts with google + and with Outlook, so all your contacts are on your phone.

Awesome Jim. I'll be interested in what others can do with the note 4, as is similar to the note 5.
