Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note 3

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has just been announced with a sigificantly better camera (both front and back), higher resolution display, faster processor and better build quality.

The display size remains the same at 5.7 inches, but the phone is slightly bigger and weighs 8 grams heavier than its predecessor.

Is it worth upgrading if you already have the Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Not really, unless you want a better front camera for selfies and also a better back camera that has been upgraded to a better quality 16MP sensor with optical image stabilisation. The price of the Note 3 is likely to be dropped to around Rs 32,000, which would make it an attractive deal at that price range.

However, if you own the Galaxy Note 2, then the Note 4 would be a significant overall upgrade.

Below is a specification comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note 3.
