Samsung is very good at making impressive devices, regardless of their sizes. And since the Note line became very popular, it was about time to see the fourth generation on the market. It has the same screen size as its predecessor, but the specs are incomparably better. Huawei is another company that has an ace in its sleeve. Its Ascend Mate 7 phablet is a real contender for the podium.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4
If the Note 3 was praised for its 5.7inches display supporting a Full HD 1080p resolution, now that the Note 4 arrived, all eyes are on its specifications. Samsung retained its screen size, but increased the resolution which is now 2560x1440pixels, and the QHD Super AMOLED display does a great job. It offers crisp colors, superb brightness levels and viewing angles, and it’s one of the best screens from the market.
In terms of design, the Note 4 kept the faux leather rear panel, but removed the fake stitches from the edges and added an aluminum frame. It’s body is a bit taller and thicker than the Note 3, measuring now 153.5×78.6×8.5 mm compared to 151.2×79.2×8.3 mm, and it weights 176grams, with 8grams more than its predecessor.
Under the plastic shell hides a big battery of 3220 mAh battery, which supports 20 hours of talking time, and which is removable. Inside the device hides the heart, a quad core Krait 450 processor clocked at 2.7Ghz, which sits on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset and pairs with an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The other variant which is available in some regions is powered by an Exynos octa core processor and has Mali-T760 graphics. The internal storage is generous at 32GB, but the device supports a microSD card and you’ll be able to expand its capacity up to 128GB.
The rear camera is 16MP, with optical image stabilization, being much better than the one from the Galaxy S5, even if it has the same resolution. The front camera is more advanced, featuring a resolution of 3.7MP and video recording capabilities at 1440p.
The Ascend Mate 7
This phablet is bigger, offering an IPS LCD display of 6inches, which supports 1080×1920 pixels and 368ppi, and has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 as protection against scratches. The device provides a fingerprint sensor, but lacks the heart rate monitor. It’s thinner than the Note 4, measuring 157x81x7.9 mm and has a weight of 185grams. Its design resembles the HTC One M8, featuring an aluminum casing with two strips on the back, but they’re much thinner.
The Ascend Mate 7 comes with the company’s chipset, HiSilicon Kirin 925, which houses an octa core processor formed by a quad core 1.8GHz Cortex-A15 and a quad core 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, which couple with a Mali-T628 GPU and 2GB of RAM/16GB of storage or 3GB of RAM/32GB of storage. To add a microSD and get up to 128 GB, use the SIM 2 slot.
The back camera is 13MP, equipped with Sony’s 4th generation Exmor lens, has a BSI sensor, LED flash and takes impressive photos, some saying that it outperforms the Note 4 in this area. The other camera is better than the one on the Note 4, having a resolution of 5MP.
The device is powered by a 4100mAh battery, which is a big step for the mobile industry.
