Is bigger always better? Well, with the Samsung Galaxy range, it certainly isn’t worse. The Galaxy Note 4 is a big phone with some big features.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge deals

The Galaxy Note Edge has very similar specs to the Note 4, but with one key difference: a curved display that wraps around the edge of the phone. That's a bit more screen real estate, and a cool strip on the spine for things like notifications, easy access to apps, and controls for the music player.

The best deal we've found on the Note Edge comes from Vodafone. It's £44 per month with £134.99 upfront - and for that, you'll get 1GB data, 1000 minutes, and unlimited texts.

What's good about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4?

Samsung has a reputation for packing some great tech into its phones. And sure enough, the Note 4 has some of the most up-to-the-minute specs and fantastic features that you won't find anywhere else.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Superb screen: The Note 4's display has a lot going for it. Not only is it a whopping 5.7 inches, it's Super AMOLED and incredibly high resolution, with an impressive pixel density of 515ppi. That means vibrant colours, a clear picture, and plenty of space for watching videos, reading ebooks, or scribbling notes.

S Pen: Samsung's stylus, the S Pen, makes using the phone a breeze. You can write with it like a pen - perfect for jotting notes down quickly, or composing texts if you struggle with fiddly smartphone keyboards. Or click the button on the end of it, and an Air Command box will appear on the screen, so you can make notes and clip screenshots in seconds.

16MP camera: The camera has a nice big 16MP lens, and the optical image stabilisation and in-depth camera settings mean you can get some pretty good shots. Meanwhile, the selfie cam on the front is 3.7MP with a 90-degree angle lens, so it's easy to fit all your friends into one picture.

Slick software: Samsung's TouchWiz UI is bright, smooth, and full of clever features. On the large-screened Note 4, that includes the ability to minimise apps into floating windows and move them around, and dual-screen to open two at once.
