Samsung Galaxy Note 4 hands-on (Video)

The first day of IFA announcements is upon us, and Samsung really set the high bar with its Unpacked 2 event and the launch of its latest phablets. Of course, we just had to go hands-on with both of those beauties, and while we’ll get to the Galaxy Note Edge in just a moment, we’re starting things off with the latest flagship in Samsung’s phablet line, the Galaxy Note 4.

While the LTE-A Galaxy S5 may have beaten it to the punch, this is the first time a Samsung phone is debuting to a worldwide audience with a quad HD display. The 5.7-inch screen delivers a better-than-500-ppi pixel density, and with either a Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 5433 under the hood (with their respective Adreno 420 or Mali T760 GPUs), Samsung is giving this phablet the power to drive those nearly 3.7 million pixels.

The display is only scratching the surface of the Note 4’s improvements, and we check out the greatly enhanced S Pen sensitivity, the new design language with its Galaxy Alpha-looking edges, and how the custom Samsung software helps ties the whole experience together. Watch on to get our full take from our first Galaxy Note 4 impressions.
