A difficult Choice:The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or The Samsung Galaxy note 3 ?

Weigh your options right: The new and the stylish Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or the stunning and innovative Samsung Galaxy Note 3, make your choices.

Like every Samsung phone release creating a pandemonium in the industry , Samsung Galaxy note 4 too follows its predecessors . With smart phones badgering the market almost daily , the dilemma all the more increases. This looks good , but this one has a better battery life. Or , this seems reasonable in price but that one has a bigger screen. Yeah , these questions cloud you too but we are there to help.

Every year comes up with new upgrades especially in the case of smart phone giant Samsung. The Galaxy note 3 was released around September last year and definitely was a gadget full of jaw dropping features. It had a new design, faster processor , larger display all adding another reason for the user’s proclivity in buying it. But now that the new Galaxy note 4 hits the market, users have another set of options that may seem likely better.

Here are the key features that help you make your choice and invest for the best:

Design: A phone that not only complements your class but also speaks for its price definitely makes the choice easier. Samsung already has improvised from the plastic body of note 2 to the stylish leather finish in note 3. So whats next to impress users? Rumours point at a combo of both and also though late but still incorporating dust and water resistance. The colours seem to be the same as they are the best to reflect the class Samsung offers, but there can be some hidden treasure for the users. Vibrant colours like Red and green may also be in the palette. There can be some other design incentives to keep up the market pace.

Display: Now it has come down to what we call it as a phablet , the best of both worlds. Samsung galaxy note 4 is rumoured to have the same screen size of 5.7 inches but a more compact design . Resolution is the changing factor, it is expected to have the Quad HD display unlike the 1080p offered by the note 3 to give users the best video and other gaming experiences. Other technical specs include a 2k display and a pixel range of around 500 ppi much higher when compared to 386 ppi offered by note 3.

Hardware, Software and Internal storage: Note 4 is powered by a superior quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) processor clocked at 2.5Ghz. There is news about an octal core variant with a 128 Gb internal storage and 4Gb RAM. Note 3 stands no less which has a 3Gb RAM and a quad core processor. Note 3 users can get the feel of kitkat (4.3) or Lollipop (4.5) when compared to note 3 that uses JellyBean (4.2) and can be upgraded to Kitkat.

Battery and Camera: Note 4 houses 3600mAh battery that gives a better battery life when compared to note 3 supporting 21 hours of talk time battery. Increments in the camera feature stand out well with a whopping 20.7 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera, that helps you get better selfies. Note 3 seems lagging in this front offering a 13 megapixel rear and a 2 megapixel front camera. 4k recording capabilities are also on the hype.

Here is what the new Samsung Galaxy note 4 is set to provide.

A juxtapose of both the phones does not reflect much of a design change but the newer just seems better. A compact, better smart design but definitely receives a tough strife from its predecessor. Not that the Samsung Galaxy note 3 offers something less but with the new note 4 hitting the market its going to steal the show.
