Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: The Phablet Pioneer Still Leads the Way - WSJ - WSJ

Final paragraphs of a Note 4 review; also see Samsung’s Superior Note 4 Smartphone Gives Glimpse of Computing’s Future (NYT)

"I wish Samsung wasn’t bucking the current trend of Android phone makers striving for more polished, uncluttered design. The new Moto X uses a clean beautiful version of Android, and Google’s new Nexus 6, also built by Motorola , will have the next version of Android—and an even bigger screen than the Note 4. Meanwhile, iOS continues to be as polished as it comes.

Yet no other phone maker can deliver such a clear vision of why the future will be written on these smartphone-tablet hybrids. 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. Even the iPhone 6 Plus. This is the best phone I have seen from Samsung in a long time—maybe ever."
