Top 5 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Alternatives [December, 2014]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one of the best smartphones on the market and a device that should be on your radar if you’re looking for a big screen smartphone in December. There are, however, some devices that we think you must weigh against the Galaxy Note 4 before buying. Here, we take a look at what we think are the top five Samsung Galaxy Note 4 alternatives for the month of December.

In early September, Samsung announced the all new 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 on the the best one the market. Its S Pen stylus and unique software are also improved over last year’s model.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is, hands down, one of the best big screened smartphones on the market and a device that we think should be considered among the best smartphones overall. 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.

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.

iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 Plus is the iPhone 6's larger counterpart and it's Apple's answer to the popular Galaxy Note series. The iPhone 6 Plus and its large screen make it a direct, and worthy, competitor of the Galaxy Note 4's and a device you should be looking at in December.

The iPhone 6 Plus is the company's massive 5.5-inch iPhone. Like the smaller iPhone 6, it comes loaded with hardware features though it comes with some notable differences including 1080p resolution and Optical Image Stabilization with the camera.

The iPhone 6 Plus is a little more expensive than Apple's other iPhone 6, it starts at $299.99, but it's arguably the best large screen smartphone that money can buy. The Galaxy Note 4 price still hasn't budged which means that these devices will be going toe-to-toe until the end of the year at least.
