The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Is A Nearly Perfect Mini Tablet | TechCrunch. It is amazing to me that, now, two years after Samsung practically invented the Phablet category, Apple finally increases the size of their phones, and it magically become the Age of the Phablet. Apple hype notwithstanding, Samsung has the market cornered for high end phablets. The Note 4 screen is brighter, the phone is faster, and the Googleverse is better in every aspect. The removable battery and the Micro SD storage slot are lagniappe. The Note 3 is very close to a perfect phone for me; so, I may wait to upgrade; but, big is suddenly in, and, like the father, we welcome you back, prodigal son.
