Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Find Out Whether Note 3 Can Prove Better Than The Note 4


When the Galaxy Note 2 arrived, the Galaxy Note (the first edition) was still a competitive device. The same kind of situation has come up again. The Galaxy Note 4 release date is drawing near and it is going to replace the Galaxy Note 3 but the latter still remains a high-end smartphone which is now available with a lower price tag.

Let us compare the two smartphones to know whether it will be a good decision for users to upgrade to Galaxy Note 4:


The Galaxy Note 4 is going to be housed with Super AMOLED 5.7inch Quad HD display that supports a display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels with a mind-blowing pixel density of 515ppi. On the other side, the Super AMOLED 5.7inch display is low on screen specs with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and supports a pixel density of 386ppi.

One needs to be that the 2k resolution available with Galaxy Note 4 would certainly consume more resources like battery and CPU. Moreover, developers will need to build optimized apps to run on such a high resolution screen. As of now, Samsung has not revealed the battery capacity of Galaxy Note 4. The older Galaxy Note 3 came with a 3200mAh battery. So, it is certain that Samsung will provide a battery that will seamlessly support the rich quality display and powerful processor of Galaxy Note 4.

Processor and RAM

The Galaxy Note 4 phablet will feature a Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor along with Adreno 420GPU. The processor is expected to deliver a clocking speed of 2.5GHz. This will surely allow users to enjoy high-end games, multitask seamlessly and use the S-Pen stylus effortlessly on the Note 4. Samsung is also going to release an international edition of Note 4 that will feature an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor and a Mali-T760 graphics.

The Snapdragon 800 processor present under the hood of Galaxy Note 3 has now become somewhat obsolete as most of the recently launched smartphones like Sony Xperia Z2 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are running on Snapdragon 801 processor. The Note 3 came with 3GB of RAM but nothing has been officially revealed on Galaxy Note's 4 RAM capacity.


Rumors have it that the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 16MP camera. At the front, it may feature a 3.68MP front-facing camera. The rear camera will come with a host of features like optical image stabilization (OIS) and high quality photography in dim light settings to name a few. The 13MP camera of Galaxy Note 3 won't be able to match photography and video recording prowess of the successor model as it lacks optical image stabilization.
