The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be from the same generation of flagships as the Google Nexus 6, but it has been deprived of Android 7.0 Nougat, the latest Android update. The device was launched with Android 4.4.4 KitKat so, it looks like Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow would be its last.

However, there is a way around this. Galaxy note 4 users can gain entry into Nougat as well as future software updates from the Android world through custom unofficial ROMs.

Many of these ROMs bring the special Screen-Off Memo, a Galaxy Note exclusive feature, when users level up to Nougat. Even if you’re not used to manually flashing custom ROMs, it isn’t such a difficult task.

The Galaxy Note 4 is one device that you can’t go wrong with, unless your hands are too tiny for its 5.7-inch size. But, it is its size that makes full use of a stylus.

On top of that, the device is currently going for a mere $200, for a refurbished unit. Just head on over to Amazon and you’ll be bombarded with the various deals.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is powered by the Snapdragon 805 and it is packed with a 3,220mAh battery unit which is reportedly said to be able to survive longer on a single charge compared to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Well, that’s what a battery test by Phone Arena revealed.

We love articles like this on the Note 4.

Note Users are more passionate about this phone more than any other Samsung and why? Because it has been such a solid performer from A-Z from design to software and battery life to external storage and replaceable battery. Note 5 is substandard to Note 4 for these reasons nd has a lower specked battery.

Simply put- They just didn’t make a better phone. Nougat? Who cares. All you bloggers just assume we all just have to have the latest. Not me- I love staying on Kitkat. It is smooth as butter. Most Note 4 users feel no need to upgrade. Ask them. Most feel so satisfied that they want to stay where they are. Galaxy Note 4 is still the King of all Smart phones!
