Early Wednesday, Samsung introduced two new beasts; the Note 4 and the Note Edge. Well here is all you need to know about the Note 4.

The note 4 phablet has a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display; it also has a metal band wrapping its side pretty much like the Galaxy Alpha. It also has a virtual-reality headset known as the Gear VR which will be sold as a companion to the Note 4 but won’t work with other Galaxy devices. It still has its old school faux-leather style back but all these slight changes go a long way to making it a better phone than its predecessors. Samsung is in the bid to keep up with its design strategy pacing up with Apple that is rumoured to launch a 5.5 inch beast a week from now.

This bad boy is pretty much designed to attract Gamers. It also features an improved pen stylus with double the pressure sensitivity of the Note 3 and related software as a handwriting alternative to typing with the keypad.

Multitasking is much easier on this device taking advantage of its massive screen. There’s also this feature of shrinking an app into a smaller window that can hover over top of another running app. Apps can also be put in a two-app split-screen view which is really exciting.

Although this amazing phone is packed with cool new features and the latest hardware specs, there is almost nothing in the Note 4 that will excite old users, many mobile phone analysts suggest.

Samsung is in a bid to recover from the 2 year decline in the market share. This is majorly due to the Galaxy S5 that was released in April which caused massive disappointment to highly anticipated users. Research puts it that the older flagship, iPhone 5S out sold the Galaxy S5; a failure to deliver major improvements from its predecessor. Samsung however reveals that it will focus on a narrower set of products and also get more aggressive on pricing to recover from the decline.
