The #Note4KE has some great features.


I had the chance to try out the new improved Galaxy Note 4. I had a blast with it as you will read in this post Head over heels. Falling in love with Nate.

There are a few key features I did not mention in the other post.

The camera for me was my favourite feature. Both the front and back cameras give you crystal clear photos. The Note 4 has a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabilizer that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera offers a default 90 degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle, so users can take the best group shots with friends.

The Note 4 has an 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing viewing like no other.

The Galaxy Note 4 has a large screen with a Multi Window feature so that you are able to multi-task & access your applications easily. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens. The Note 4 has a display that gives you clear, vivid images and faster response times. Accessing apps, changing size and positioning of apps is easy. You can do it with one intuitive swipe.


Samsung has also improved on the Fingerprint Scanner so that your personal data is secure. It also features the first UV sensor in a mobile device.

The charging system is also fast & has an Ultra Power Saving Mode which enables charging from 0 to 50% in 31 minutes which is good news. This is great especially if you tend to spend a lot of time out in the field and need for your phone to charge quickly when you get to a power source.

I was impressed by the Note 4’s multiple microphones. There is an improved speaker phone for better noise cancellation when speaking in a loud place. The Note 4 also has a built-in Voice Recorder which allows users to isolate and listen to specific voices in a group conversation. The recorder has four modes: normal, interview, meeting & voice. So you can tape an interview or even tape yourself.

The GALAXY Note 4’s S Pen has a more authentic pen effect. You have the option of either using fountain or calligraphy pen mode. The S Pen also has more  user-friendly Air Command functionalities along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select that allows users to create and collect content with ease. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Photo Note feature allows users to take a picture of their notes on a paper or a classroom board and then quickly and easily convert to an S Note.

The Note 4 costs Kshs. 75,000 and that it is available in Safaricom and Samsung branded stores countrywide.
