It was just last year (2013) that Samsung launched their (then) flagship phablet, the Note 3. Along with it came the first Samsung Galaxy Gear and boy oh boy it was mind blowing. Now, a year after that, Samsung made the announcement that everyone was waiting for; Unpacked episode 2 and in it came a whole lot of goodies!! Let's take a look inside.
Yes from the look of it, it looks pretty similar to Note 3. But look again, it has a more refined look as compared to its older sibling.
I am a user of Note 3 and I am really excited over Note 4. Let's take a look inside this baby.
The size is relatively the same as Note 3. So if you are comfortable with Note 3, you can be sure that you will be comfortable holding this new flagship device from Samsung.
Although the size is the same, Samsung Note 4 comes with a different screen from its predecessor, Note 4 comes with quad HD Super AMOLED display which is predictably be able to produce stunning display with vibrant colors, exceptionally wide viewing angles, and no visible pixels. Best thing is with quad HD, your device will use less power and deliver awesome display! Great news there.
What else, i won't go into details cause mainly not many people would care what's inside. But let me tell you this, from the specs, this baby is powerful!

Next, the camera. Ha... in the age of selfies, camera is pretty much important. In this version of the Note series, Samsung has improved the camera tremendously. The rear camera comes with 16 MP with OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) maksudnya stok amik gambar memang confirm tak gegar lah. Apart from that, the front camera comes with 3.7 MP and it hs an imporved low light condition by 60%. Now, no probs to take photos in low lighting condition!!! Oh not to forget you can take wider selfie since it has wider front lens and it can take a 120 degree angle view too!
Now sometimes we need to charge our phone really fast, and it can be disappointing bila tunggu punya tunggu your phone has only only been charged for 20%. Now, with Note 4, you can charge up to 50% in half an hour!! AMAZING! Not only the battery life of this thing is amazing, nak charge pun tak lama dream come true!
Okay, when Samsung introduced the Note Series about 3 years ago, they had introduced S Pen as well. This time around, they have enhanced the power of S Pen by increasing the sensitivity level of which it will give you the feel of writing using a normal ballpoint pen!
Now with S Pen, you can select multiple things, collect them and send them off. You can also have a more amazing multi window too. Oh, S Pen now has its own widget too to help you take note easier with it.
1) Better screen that uses less energy
2) Efficient internal thing that uses less energy
3) Awesome rear camera that can take photo at any movement
4) Amazing front camera (can take photo in low light and more people can join selfie)
5) Quick charge
6) Can do more things with S Pen now.
Next; Samsung Gear S.
After its introduction last year and a new face-lift shortly after that, Samsung took wearable device to another level. Futuristic i might say. Just look at it!
Comes with 2" curved screen, this device does not need to be constantly connected to the phone. You can go around with this thing and leave your phone behind and still be able to be in contact with the world!!
Oh and it comes with a full keyboard as well for you to reply your messages or tweet stuff!!
On top of that, you can change the the strap as well. So no more boring same strap.
There's over 1000 apps available for you so... no more no apps for galaxy gear fiasco going on here.
My Favourite: Samsung Note EDGE!
As the name mentioned, this device is edgy! You have everything amazing on Note 4 with a curved screen on the side.
Now you can just read your text or whatspp messages without having to open your phone! *mind blowing!!*

FINALLY: Samsung Gear VR
Well you can have the Virtual Reality experience at home with the help of your Note 4. Really futuristic!
You just attached your phone in the device and voila! VR at home!!
All and all, Samsung, Unpacked 2014 episode 2 offers a lot of insight towards the future of technology; curved screen, awesome wearables, portable VR. I am pretty much excited to see all these stuff in the market.
All these devices will be made available in OCTOBER this year.
Perhaps I'll get one of these things as my birthday gift!
