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