If you think about all the new devices that are coming out these days, most of them are upwards of five inches, with many hovering around the 5.5-inch mark. While that’s a norm today, it wasn’t so a couple of years ago.
Back then, to have a smartphone that had a screen size of more than five inches was bordering on the absurd. But, one smartphone changed that. One smartphone kickstarted a revolution in smartphones, their screen sizes, and what we could do with them.
Here’s a brief look at that smartphone and the handset lineup it spawned. The pioneer that led to an entire generation of large form-factor handsets — the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Reports have begun to trickle in that Samsung have started to roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates for a selected device in Europe. No, it’s not the Galaxy Note5 or any of the Galaxy S6 variants. Oddly enough, it looks like they’ve begun rolling out Marshmallow updates to their old Note device, the Galaxy Note 4.

Nearly a year has gone since the Galaxy Note 4 and flash-forward to the present with the arrival of the much anticipated Galaxy Note 5 is a reality. Today we aim to pit the old against the new and discuss the main differences, mainly positive but some questionable.
The Galaxy Note 5 won’t be getting an “edge” sibling this time around but instead Samsung will be releasing a Galaxy S6 edge+, which is basically a bigger version of the S6 edge. Now a purported dummy phone of the S6 edge+ has appeared and with no surprises, it looks like a stretched S6 edge.
As you would expect, it has the same exterior design with its 5.1″ standard edge model including a double curve screen at the front. When compared to the Galaxy Note 4, it does look larger than its purported 5.3-5.4″ display size. The Galaxy Note 4 gets a 5.7″ Quad HD AMOLED display and judging from the picture above, the S6 edge+ might be having a similar screen size.
If you’re using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, its Lollipop update (Android 5.0.1) is now available in Malaysia. This is specifically for the SM-N910C version that runs on Exynos.
The update is more than a GB in size, so you would need to download this patiently over WiFi. Before installation, it would require at least 3GB of free space and be sure to backup your files just in case if anything goes wrong. If you haven’t received any update notification, you can check manually under Settings > About Phone > Software updates.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge boast improved cameras for both front and back. The current GALAXY Note 4 was proven to be a stellar performer with a 16MP main camera. Now on the latest flagship, it gets a similar main camera but Samsung has tweaked it further for better pictures at any time.
For those who love to take selfies, the front now gets a better 5MP camera that should capture more detail than the front 3.7MP unit on the GALAXY Note 4. So how does the Galaxy S6 compare against the GALAXY Note 4 and its former GALAXY S5 flagship? Read on to find out.
So you’ve gotten a GALAXY Note 4 and you probably wonder what else could you do with it. With a powerful processor, improved S-Pen stylus and a vibrant 5.7″ Quad HD display, this is still the king of phablets which is now in its 4th generation. To get going immediately, here are the Top 11 features which you may not know you can do on your GALAXY Note 4.

The latest Android Lollipop update is making its way to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It is rolling out now for Exynos variants in Poland and while there’s no schedule yet, we expect our similar Malaysian units (SM-N910C) to receive it soon. According to Sammobile, the update carries the Android version 5.0.1, which is slightly newer than the one that was pushed to Galaxy S5 users recently.
The software update is reported to include a refreshed appearance and it gets faster performance and improved battery life as well. According to them, it isn’t available for Kies and it is being rolled out as an OTA (over the air) update.
