The best big-screen phone you can buy right now

90

The Galaxy Note 4 is the best large phone on the market. It's a device you'll be proud to whip out in public, thanks to its elegant design, robust build, beautiful screen, impressive battery life and solid camera. It also excels from a productivity standpoint, offering seamless multitasking and stylus functionality that's as smooth as I've ever seen on a smartphone. And despite its large size, Samsung has nailed the one-handed experience better than the competition. There's certainly a benefit to drawing from years of experience in this category: What began as an oddity three years ago has now evolved into a powerful tool at the top of its class.

Not only is the Note 4 the best Samsung smartphone I've ever used, but it's also the best large-screen phone on the market -- even better than the iPhone 6 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will thrill anyone who loves a fast phone with a large screen, but it's best for compulsive scribblers willing to pay a lot for its winning stylus.

The god-awful TouchWiz skin and poor design used to be the dealbreakers, but they're not anymore. And without those handicaps, the Note 4 is free to be truly great.

It may not meet my high aesthetic standards, software-wise, but multitasking on that big, beautiful display makes the Note feel more productive and powerful than any other phablet out there.

While we’re still mystified by some of Samsung’s software decisions the hardware and overall experience are flagship-worthy.

The Note 4 is the best device Samsung has ever made relative to what's available from others in its respective launch year — the one big question is whether or not you think you can handle the size of this phone. If you can, you'll be rewarded with one hell of a device.
