Comparisson review

Xperia Z4v is a bit better than the Galaxy Note Edge, getting an 8.91 score against 8.74. Xperia Z4v's construction is newer and a bit lighter than Galaxy Note Edge's, but it is a little bit thicker. Both of these devices work with Android OS (operating system), but the Xperia Z4v has the newer 5.1 version and Galaxy Note Edge has Android 5.0, giving some nice extra features and performance enhancements.

The Sony Xperia Z4v features a bit faster CPU than Galaxy Note Edge, and although they both have the same RAM memory amount, the Sony Xperia Z4v also has a faster graphics processing unit and 4 more cores (but slower). Galaxy Note Edge counts with a display that's very similar to the Sony Xperia Z4v one, because although the Galaxy Note Edge has a little bit less pixels per inch of display, and they both have exactly the same resolution of 2560 x 1440, it also counts with a little larger display.

Galaxy Note Edge features a very superior memory capacity for applications, games, photos and videos than Xperia Z4v. They have the same 32 GB internal memory and an external memory card slot that allows up to 128 GB. Xperia Z4v features just a bit better battery life than Galaxy Note Edge. Xperia Z4v shoots clearer videos and photos than Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, and although they both have the same 3840x2160 video definition and the same 30 frames per second video frame rate, the Xperia Z4v also has a camera in the back with a much higher 20.7 mega pixels resolution, a larger diafragm aperture for better low-light captures and a larger camera sensor taking better quality photos.

The Xperia Z4v costs exactly the same than Galaxy Note Edge, , making this phone a very good choice.
