Here is the biggest phone of 2014 check it out. 

I am an experienced freelance technology journalist. I write for Wired, The Next Web, TrustedReviews and the BBC in addition to Forbes. I began in b2b print journalism covering tech companies at the height of the dot com boom and switched to covering consumer technology as the iPod began to take off. A career highlight for me was being a founding member of TrustedReviews. It started in 2003 and we were repeatedly told websites could not compete with print! Within four years we were purchased by IPC Media (Time Warner’s publishing division) to become its flagship tech title. What fascinates me are the machinations of technology’s biggest companies.

Contrary to popular belief the iPhone 6 is not the only new handset being launched this month. Android purists will be focused on the Nexus 6, but for the masses the big interest is Samsung and the new Galaxy Note 4.


The original Galaxy Note was a game changer when it was released in 2011 and with the Note 3 last year the large format phablet hit the mainstream, selling over 10 million units in just two months. Furthermore with smartphone screen sizes getting ever larger phablets are becoming less and less intimidating to transition to and they typically marry their big screens with masses of power and great battery life.


All of which creates a conundrum: phone or phablet? The 4.7-inch Galaxy Alpha is likely to be too small for potential Note 4 owners so my comparison point is the Samsung Galaxy S5 – the biggest selling Android phone on the planet. Lets put the two head-to-head.

Display: Galaxy S5 5.2-inches – Galaxy Note 4 5.7-inches

One may be a phone and the other a phablet, but both devices have huge screens. The duo have each increased 0.2-inches compared to their predecessors, but while the S5 maintains the same 1920 x 1080 Full HD display as the S4, the Note 4 ups its game to an incredible 2560 x 1440 pixels (also known as QHD aka 2k).
