    The Note 4 does bring a 2560x1440 resolution screen and the fact that it is the only device that will support Samsung's Virtual Reality headset, what was more interesting was the fact that Samsung also had a Note Edge on display, in which the screen tapers off on one side and can be used for a variety of features. It's like actually taking the rumored wrap around screen for the iPhone and making it a reality.

    The interesting bits?

    The Note 4 runs 4.4 out of the box. It also has a faster version of Samsung's Touch Wiz UI.

    5.7 inch screen, 518 ppi

    16 MP rear camera with 8X Digital zoom and OIS (which Samsung credits as a first in a phone, but the Lumia 1020 had it way before).

    The front camera gets bumped up to 3.7 MP (from 2 in the Note 3) and get's a much wider aperture for better low light selfies.

    Oh and the heart sensor next to the LED flash can also be used for clicking selfies. Whoa so much emphasis on Selfies.

    It has all the regular features that the S5 does, but improves on multi-tasking due to the multi-window operation and the S-pen, which is even more sensitive and responsive than before.

    A 3220 mAH battery that can be removed, and can be charged upto 50% in about 30 minutes. It also has a ultra low power mode that can stretch the last 10% of the battery over 24 hours.

    They have for once gone with a metal body to take the fight to Apple, and have given it a premium feel.

    Honestly, the only 2 bits that I'm excited about are the VR headset and the Edge with it's tapered screen.

    A 5 inch + phone is any day too damn big for me to use on a daily basis. The Lumia 1020 in fact with its 4.5 inch screen does Bag duty and is pulled out only for capturing shots.

    Lemme know if anyone gets a chance to go hands on with the Note 4, would be interesting to get some actual feedback.

    My buddy at Samsung bet me that the next Samsung release would have a curved display .. I laughed it off ..
    The Note series has evolved quite a bit and TouchWiz seems a lot more refined.

    Samsung finally getting things just perfect.

    The Edge is interesting, I'd like to see what that curved display is used for.

    Pretty impressed with the design here. Glad they got rid of the fake stitch and the band-aid look. But will be interesting to see if that curved display creates problem for right hand use.
    Oh another awesome thing is that Samsung will be giving out sdk to developers so we can see a few more apps using the strip.
    Although India might get the Exynos version and not the Snapdragon. :(

    Nothing new, what I meant was how the curved display technology helps in enhancing these experiences.

    The best thing is still the ruler. I would want to take measurement of my body parts with my phone, totally worth the expenditure.

    Euro pricing for the Note 4 - 699 Euros

    About 56,000 INR.

    That's pricey, actually the most expensive Samsung ever.

    Taking apple as price point is terrible idea, I hope samsung didn't think of it.

    Apple is for those who either want to spend money somewhere or who gets phone free via contract.Other brands doesn't have that luxury.

    One free via contract please.

    Second bit, the resale on Apple is pretty good compared to the rest. For instance one year old iPhone 5s is selling at about 11,000 INR less than what it for bought for.

    A note 3 is around 18-20k lower

    It is for people who want to feel like geeks because they think they are geeks and have money which they don't know where to spend.
