Although the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be from the same generation as the Google Nexus 6, it has been left out from gaining entry into Android 7.0 Nougat. The device came with Android 4.4.4 KitKat which makes its ceiling the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
That’s sad, but hold your tears as there is a way around this. Galaxy Note 4 users can jump into Nougat, as well as future software updates, by using custom unofficial ROMs.
Many of these ROMs permit the users to enjoy the Screen-Off Memo which is a Galaxy Note exclusive when they upgrade to Nougat. Fret not if you’re not familiar with these custom ROMs as it is really not that hard to master.
If you’re considering buying a Galaxy Note 4 as a backup or your upcoming budget daily driver, you definitely won’t be disappointed. Unless you have tiny palms as its 5.7-inch size could be too much for you to handle.
However, it comes with a stylus so that makes it easier to use. On top of that, this device costs only $200 for all its great features, if you’re opting for a refurbished unit that is. Browse through Amazon and you’ll see plenty of such deals.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is equipped with the Snapdragon 805 and packed with a 3,220mAh battery, which is said to last longer compared to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, as revealed by Phone Arena through its battery tests.
