A closer look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Big phones are quickly becoming the new normal, and Samsung has been a leader in making them. The company's newest — the Galaxy Note 4 — is its best one yet. It's a premium phone that's meant to let you do everything from watch high-res video to take notes with its embedded stylus, and it might just make you wonder how you were ever productive on anything smaller.

The speedy 5.7-inch phone is built for productivity, and it offers a ton of real estate on its 2560-by-1440 AMOLED display while boasting up to two days of battery life. It can let you multitask with its split-screen capabilities, and the camera is a winner whether you're shooting photos or video. Better yet, Samsung's finally moving away from plastic to real metal trim — an indication that the company is finally putting hardware design on the same pedestal as the feature list. The Note 4 maybe be one of the bigger phones on the market, but it makes big look good.
