34 things the Galaxy Note 4 can do that the iPhone 6 can’t


NOTE: The author owns both a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and an Apple iPhone 6 (128GB).

People tend to ask me which type of device they should get and for the most part, I probably recommend 20 percent Windows Phones (yes, they are awesome), 40 percent iPhone and 40 percent Android.

For most people tinkering with their phone isn’t something that comes naturally, so simple OS, such as Windows Phone 8.1 and iOS would fit the bill.

Another way I give recommendations is through features, and on this video (above), I go over 34 features that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can do, which the Apple iPhone 6 (or 6 Plus cannot).

If you feel that some of these features are a must have, then you’ve just narrowed down the device for you.

I can basically breakdown the 34 features into 3 main groups: hardware, OS, and S-Pen.

The Note 4 has a removable back panel which allows for hardware upgrades; such as, swapping out batteries, expanding the external storage (to an additional 128GB), Qi wireless charging.note4back

Other hardware features include heart-rate monitor, IR blaster, touch-sensitive display, and the S-Pen.

Note 4 currently runs Android 4.4.4 (Kit Kat) with a layer of TouchWiz.  Android has many built in functions; such as, widgets, customizing everything (launcher, lock screens, icons, fonts, folders, number of apps on a page, closing all notifications with one tap, closing all apps with one tap) and so much more.  This doesn’t even require rooting the device, most are customizable via settings, or you can download an additional app from the Google Play App Store.

In our short video, we skim four main S-Pen functions: Action Memo, Smart Select, Image Clip and Screen Write.  My favorite to use is screen write, it makes notes just awesome.


 The complete list can be found on our YouTube video.

We’ll be recording a Part 2 soon!
