Despite global decline, Samsung sees Note 4 user base expanding in PH

Although reports have indicated that Samsung’s global market share in the high-end smartphone has contracted significantly in the past year, the company’s local unit is upbeat that its new Galaxy Note 4 phablet will set record sales yet again in the country.

Based on the crowd that showed up at the Mall of Asia where the unveiling of the new device was held, the South Korean technology giant appears to have a basis to make the claim.

At the launch event, four individuals who were the first to make advance reservation online were rewarded with a free new unit each. The rest who also reserved online were given substantial cash discounts for their purchases.

Priced at P37,990, the Galaxy Note 4 is Samsung’s bet in the premium smartphone segment that is expected to go against Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Samsung executives said the Galaxy Note Edge, which is even more high-end and therefore pricier, will not be available in the Philippines to compete with Apple’s flagship smartphone,

The metal-framed Galaxy Note 4, however, is expected to take the cudgels for Samsung as its large Super Amoled QHD screen will make watching videos a richer experience. It has a 5.7-inch screen for a vividly detailed expression beyond the limits of the human eye.

The enhanced S-Pen also gives a superb touch and feel experience that allows the user to distinguish the slightest nuances in writing and press sensitivity.

The S-Pen also features the Photo Note and Smart Select which helps make users more productive when scribbling notes for work and lets them do things faster and with greater precision.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a 16MP rear camera, which features Optical Image Stabilization that reduces blur and is perfect for taking images and videos under low-light conditions.

With Ultra Power Saving Mode, users don’t have to worry about losing functionality for vital apps. It allows them to access the phone’s basic functions, such as making calls and sending messages, while still optimizing battery life for as long as possible, even at 10 percent.
