Two of the hottest phones available in the mobile market today are the Apple iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4. Both have their individual strengths and weaknesses, but in my own humble opinion, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 outperforms the iPhone 6 in so many ways.
The Note 4 and the iPhone 6 are both high-end and cutting edge devices packed with remarkable internals and features. Neither of the 2 is perfect and complete in their own unique ways but I see the Note 4 having the edge over the iPhone 6.
The following is a list of the five things the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 does that the iPhone 6 can’t do, or at least doesn’t meet my expectations.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and its S Pen
The Apple iPhone 6 didn’t manage to introduce something as great at the Samsung S Pen. When the Samsung Galaxy Note phone series was announced back in 2011, its most defining feature was its size. The line was one of the earliest versions of the phablet that became available for those who enjoy having big screens for their mobile devices. Although Apple managed to produce a mobile device with the same size (iPhone 6 Plus), it did not come with the easy-to-use S pen.
What’s great about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is its multitasking feature. You can view and access several applications at the same time. The Pop Up View Shortcut lets you shrink several compatible Samsung applications into smaller windows and drag them around the screen where you want them displayed. You can continue working with the other applications on the screen. Simply tap the circle log to collapse and reopen applications.
A removable and replaceable battery pack
With a simple snap off the back of the Galaxy Note 4 back cover, you could simply remove its battery pack and place a new one. The Galaxy Note 4 comes with a large battery with 3,220 mAh that offers an impressive 37 hours of standby time and 11 hours when continuously used together with the internet. Even with the promising battery hours the phone offers, having an extra battery pack seems necessary for someone who enjoys travelling like I do. This is something that the Apple iPhone 6 lacks.
Ultra power-saving mode
What comes with the removable battery pack is a battery that can be charged fast and a device that has capabilities to maximize its battery life even if your phone is almost dead. The Galaxy Note 4 comes with the Adaptive Fast Charging feature that allows you to charge your device in just 30 minutes. That is the time you spend inside the bathroom every morning or maybe time you spend in the shower and eating breakfast. The only catch is you have to use a compatible micro USB port for charging to power it and sync it up. The device ships with the Adaptive Fast Charging charger so you have nothing to worry about.
As for the price, the Samsung Note price in Singapore is way more affordable than the iPhone 6. There is about a $200 difference between the two gadgets. You can compare latest market prices via PricePanda.
I do love my iPhone 6, its high-end camera and the features that comes with it. I just so happen to love my Note 4 more.
