The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 stayed on top for some months till newer Samsung models were introduced.

This is one of the reasons why most people are wondering what differences there are in the Note 4 and 5 and why they should be bothered or itch to buy one model from the other. For those with the Note 4, buying the Note 5 seems to be a huge challenge for them.

This shouldn’t be so, however, considering the importance of both devices and the fact that they are both unique in their way. Read on now to know some of the difference both devices have which might help you decide which one is worth owning and which is not worth owning.

Performance and Software Comparison

One of the things that separate the Note 4 from other tablets is the stylus that is the S Pen. The S Pen appears to be beneficial for most users. It is true that some users have had their reservations about the use of this S Pen; there are some that are clearly benefiting from it. Also, the Air Command menu has been enhanced to make using the S Pen smooth to use and very easy to operate as well. This is the same where the Note 5 is concerned. Also, you get these very same features with the Note 5.

Some features like the Smart Select, Action Memo, S Note and Screen Write are also introduced here. Also, you can add your unique shortcuts to the Menu. The Note 5 comes designed with Samsung Pay, and this is thanks to its Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) integration. Not like NFC payments that necessitate well-matched terminals, MST operates with your current Credit Card terminals that are in stores already.

Where performance specifications are concerned, the Note 4 has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor or Exynos 5433 based on the region. The Note 5 comes with its unique Exynos octa-core 64-bit processor, and it is anticipated to operate well with the 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

Camera Comparison of Note 4 vs. Note 5

The camera of the Note 4 is an amazing feature that stands out where the device is concerned. Its 16 MP main snapper is designed with OIS, autofocus, and LED flash as well as 2160 video recording at 30 fps. The camera megapixel count of the Note 5 is, however, the same on the back, but in front, it has been upgraded from 3.7 MP to 5 MP which is impressive. Some other aspects of the camera have also been upgraded with the Note 5 which makes it more similar to the perfect Galaxy S6 cam.

Battery Comparison of Both Devices

The battery of the Note 4 stands at 3220 mAh in capacity that makes sure its lifespan is very good, particularly with its QHD display. It comes with a very strong battery performance than the 2550 mAh battery of the S6 which houses a QHD display as well.
