Top 5 Galaxy Note 4 Alternatives [January, 2015]

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one of the best smartphones money can buy and it’s a device that you should take a look at if you’re in the hunt for a new phone this month. That said, some devices that we think you must weigh against the Galaxy Note 4 before buying. Here, we rundown the devices we think are the top five Samsung Galaxy Note 4 alternatives in the first month of the year.

In September, Samsung took the stage and announced the Galaxy Note 4, a device that replaces the Galaxy Note 3 as the company’s flagship Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note 4 improves on the Galaxy Note 3 in a number of different ways including an improved design, camera, and an all new Quad HD display that’s considered one of the best displays on the market. Its S Pen stylus and unique software are also improved from last year’s Note.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one of the best big screen smartphones on the market and a device we believe is one of the best all-around smartphone packages you can buy. It’s a device that you should be looking at but it’s not the only device that you should be looking at. There are some strong Galaxy Note 4 competitors that we think you need to consider.

Best of 2014 - Galaxy Note 4 review

We are constantly bombarded with questions about Samsung Galaxy Note 4 alternatives to look at. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend as the smartphone market is full of solid big screen choices but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider the top five Galaxy Note 4 competitors available right now.

These devices represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.

With that in mind, here are the five Samsung Galaxy Note 4 alternatives for January, 2015.

Google's brand new Nexus 6 is also one of the best big screen smartphones on the market and a device that we think prospective Galaxy Note 4 buyers will want to check out before making the move to Samsung's big screen smartphone.

The Nexus 6 features a massive 6-inch Quad HD display, speedy processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a host of carriers in the United States, and a price tag that's competitive with the Galaxy Note 4's price point. All of these features help to position the device as a viable alternative to the Note 4.

If you're in any way leaning towards vanilla Android over TouchWiz, you must check out the Nexus 6 from Motorola and Google. It's a top notch smartphone and one of the best Android phones available to you right now. Take a look at it before jumping in with the Galaxy Note 4.
