We still have a few weeks to go before Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge is released in the UK, but thanks to XDA Forums member Albe95, we can sample some of Samsung's Note 4 applications. This is a great way to experiment with some of Samsung's up-and-coming applications and imagine how they might run on the new Android powerhouse.
Let's recap about the Note 4, Note Edge and some of the software features, talking about the hardware first. Both of these Note devices are based around some of the fastest silicon we've yet seen in a production Android handset, either a quad-core 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor or the Samsung Exynos 5433 dual / quad core setup, which pairs a higher performance 1.9 GHz quad core processor with a power-sipping 1.3 GHz quad core processor. Both processor variants come with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage plus a MicroSD slot. The screen is 5.7-inch (Note 4) or 5.6-inch (Note Edge) and both are ultrahigh resolution (at least 1,440 by 2,560 pixels). The Note 4 has a 3,220 mAh battery and the Note Edge makes do with 3,000 mAh; each have a 16 MP rear facing camera paired up with a 3.7 MP front facing camera. Each has the Samsung S-Pen and a plethora of sensors to check your fingerprint, heart rate, blood saturation and ultraviolet light.
Albe95 has made a number of Note 4 applications available including S Voice, S Health, Smart Remote, GeoNews, Galaxy Apps Widget, Task Manager, Gear Manager, Snapbiz Card, All Together, S Memo, Story Album and East Chart. You can hit up the article source below, download and install these applications onto your Samsung device to use immediately without waiting for the Note 4 to be released. If, however, you're desperate to measure the UV strength I'm afraid you're out of luck as the Note 4 is the first Samsung Android device with this sensor. And if you're desperate to measure the blood oxygen saturation using the SpO2 sensor (peripheral capillary oxygen saturation; a measure of how much oxygen is being carried by your blood; under 95% is bad news!) again you're out of luck.
Sideloading these applications will be quicker than waiting for Samsung to make updates to the existing application in Samsung applications and if you try this, do hit us up in the comments and let us know how you get on and how different or improved they are.
