The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
ANT+ is a wireless protocol similar to Bluetooth Smart, and is very power efficient. It is mainly used for fitness monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors and cadence sensors to connect to other devices, eg. sports watches, smartphones and cycling computers.
Measurably smaller semiconductor size
4 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
10.70 mm narrower
Has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Appreciably faster uploads
8.68x faster uploads
Higher GeekBench result
Higher GeekBench result. This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2015)
14.50 mm shorter
Appreciably higher memory bandwidth
6.40 GB/s higher memory bandwidth. A higher memory bandwidth means the memory can be accessed faster and therefore data can be retrieved quicker, having a positive effect on the performance.
Vastly less body volume
1.52x less body volume
Have a ir blaster
Slow motion video function is available in S4 also
Has functional NFC

Top Nine Reasons for the
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S4
More battery power
19.23% more battery power
A shade bigger screen size
10% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Has stereo speakers
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Has a radio
It works as an FM radio with included headsets
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Substantially lower SAR for body (USA)
0.60 W/kg lower SAR for body (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at hip level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Substantially lower SAR for head (USA)
0.62 W/kg lower SAR for head (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Has a stylus
A stylus lets you draw on the screen and take notes like with a pen
