The display and quality is a biggest factor many buyers take into consideration, and that will be especially true with the Note 4 or LG G3. The LG G3 is the first handset to land in the U.S. with a Quad HD display with the resolution of 2560 x 1440pixels(some call it a 2k display) and it looks great. However, now Samsung has also included rich display same as LG G3 but it is slightly bigger.

The new Note 4 includes a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display with the resolution of 2560 x 1440pixels, though includes Samsung’s impressive AMOLED technology. The 5.5-inch size on the LG G3 is not too bad, and slim bezels keep the device rather sleek. The Note 4 design are a little bigger than we were expecting, it will likely help protect that big screen from drops and damage.

The AMOLED screen on Note 4 is crisp, vibrant, gorgeous, and saturation is excellent. The LG G3 Quad-HD display is great as well, but viewing angles are incomparable to Note 4, and colors are a bit washed out. However, they both look stunning and will make any buyer quite happy.

Those who have used a Note smartphone in the past already know what possibly will be included with the device. The device is nearly the same but refurbished with a new metal band around the frame that look really great, and a new textured back almost similar like the Note 3. The LG G3 however, has all the camera, sensors, buttons, and everything else around back to make people able to use the device with a single handle. This keeps the sides clear for that sleek bezel that keeps the physical size down.


The Galaxy Note 4 is fueled by a ultra fast 2.7 GHz quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) Krait 450 processor. The LG G3, meanwhile, is powered by a relatively lower but powerful 2.5 GHz quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 801) Krait 400 processor. While the LG G3 is coupled by a 2 GB of RAM (16 GB storage variant) and a 3GB of RAM (32 GB storage variant), however, with Note 4 there isn’t any variation with memory, packs a solid 3 GB of RAM.


When it comes to memory, the Galaxy Note 4 packs a 32 GB of in-built storage, while the G3 comes with different memory based variant, 16 GB and 32 GB of storage on-board. However, both the smartphones support microSD card for further memory expansion. While the Galaxy Note 4’s expansion is limited up to 64 GB only, the LG G3 can support up to 128 GB which is double than Note 4.
