Samsung and Apple has one of the most well-known and controversial rivalries and both companies have always been trying to outdo each other, especially with their flagship phone series. Samsung is still to release the latest in their phablets, the Galaxy Note 4 but Apple has already released the latest in their smartphone series, the iPhone 6 Plus.
Both devices are fairly big, with the Galaxy Note 4 clearly in the area of the phablets while the iPhone 6 Plus falls a bit short.
The Galaxy Note 4 has a super AMOLED 5.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (QHD resolution). The high definition screen of the Note 4 was brought about by the release of LG's G3 smartphone which had a similar QHD resolution screen. more >>

This isn't the first time that Samsung released a limited edition curved device. It can be recalled that the company launched the Galaxy Round last year, and it wasn't widely available as well. more >>
