In pictures: Galaxy Note 4 versus Galaxy S5

85
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5

Two devices clearly cut from the same cloth, but one does it up big

The Samsung Galaxy S5 may have been released first, but in many minds the Galaxy Note 4 is the real Samsung flagship of the year. With a nice aluminum frame and improved camera the Note 4 has a lot going for it, but it still borrows heavily from the strides the Galaxy S5 made earlier in 2014.

The heart rate monitor, finger sensor, interior design and software have all been out in the world since the GS5 was released, and while the Note 4 wraps them up a bit more attractive package the Galaxy S5 has waterproofing and an easier-to-hold size going for it. These are the two big devices for Samsung this year, and we've got them side-by-side for some great photos.
