    Is the camera close to the new iPhones in regular light and low light photos? I have been checking all the reviews some think it is the same or better, others say that the Note 4 is worse in those conditions. I have a 6 Plus now....but am missing Android....but I do LOVE the Plus camera. I do not want to lose any camera quality (regular and low light) if I make the switch back.

    Low light on the iPhone is better, resolution is worse. This is due to the pixel size on both

    Note 4's is better to me.

    Even the PhoneArena blind test had the Note 4 win, with over 40% votes.

    True but that somewhat biased test was ALL great lighting.....I know that type of lighting is the Note 4 strength....I am waiting for the same test with mixed lighting conditions.

    Same here . low light was a note 3 weak point along with indoors or lower light motion shots.

    Note 3 was TERRIBLE in low light and just normal inside light... agreed!! Note 4 does seem better...just that the 6 Plus is actually GOOD in low light...I am conflicted!

    Let me give you guys a Note 4 pic I took at night, it's not all low light but it blew away my N2, and all of my friends iphone 5's and 6's.

    Taken at Atlantic Avenue I'm Brooklyn.

    Sorry none from other phones for comparison. My older brother has an iPhone6 so I'll try to do some comparison shots when I get time.

    I prefer the note 4 photo quality over the iPhone but the faster shutter response of the iPhone is nice.

    Great pic! Thanks. Most phones in well lit night (like your shot) seem to do ok. It is when you get in a lowlight environment with no bright lights (indoor but not real bright light). The Note 3 really struggled with this (pics turned into paintings vs photos). The 6 Plus is really good in this type of lighting. Just hoping the Note 4 is at least close to the same.

    It depends on what you're trying to take a photo of. I recently returned my iPhone 6 and picked up a note 4. The iPhone takes better photos of moving objects i.e. my kids. No android phone I've ever used has been as fast and consistently good as an iPhone (5s and above) at capturing moving objects. It's a bummer because I really do prefer android and this note 4 is a beast, it's awesome. The note 4 camera is better than any other android phone that I've used, I just wish it was a little faster.

    I am actually very satisfied with the low light capability of the N4. I haven't experienced the iPhone 6 plus personally but compared to the iPhone 5 I used to own, the N4 beats it in day and low light photography. I wish samsung. Would have made the aperture f/2.0 with a 4.8mm lens instead of f/2.2.

    I returned my 64gb iphone plus for the note 4. I must say the iPhone camera is better. The low light pictures are sweet.

    All of that will change once andriod 5.0 is released for the note 4. We will have raw support of uncompressed images.

    So far I have been impressed with everything the Note 4 has to offer considering I have had nexus devices the last 3 years running. The note 4 camera exceeds my expectations and have even converted 2 iPhone friend enthusiasts over to android and the note 4 because of they were so impressed with the camera among other things the note offers over the other guys phablet

    The IPhone 6 plus focuses much quicker in any lighting situation. Optical stabilization seems to work better, too. If you intentionally move the IPhone while trying to shoot a picture, somehow it gets a sharp picture even in normal indoor lighting. The N4 didn't then do nearly as well.

    Where the N4 out performed the 6 plus was when zooming in. Because of its better resolution (16 vs 8 megapixels), the N4 zoomed picture was noticeably sharper and colors were more saturated.

    Thanks to everyone for the HONEST feedback. Looks like if I want the best all around camera I may have to stick with the 6 Plus....and fight all my Android urges. I wish an Android OEM would just make a COMPLETE camera....and that Verizon would support it.

    I still have both 6+ and Note 4. I agreed, in low light condition the 6+ is a little better. In the good lighting condition N4 is hand down better. Not to say 6+ is not good. 6+ is very good as well.

    I like the note 4 camera don't get me wrong. I just think after using the iPhone 6 plus for a month it's better. Is it leaps and bounds better no.

    So I can completely understand the desire for a camera that is good in low light, but to me i'd prefer it to be good in daytime as well. Seems to me like both cameras are great, Note 4 is better than the iPhone in daytime, and iPhone is better than the Note 4 in darker conditions. If I preferred one OS over the other, that's the one i'd get. I don't mine coal so I don't need the very best lowlight shooter on the market. I do have kids though, and when I want pics of them indoor at night time, I need one that's capable. To me, the Note 4 is perfect for my scenarios and most of the photos I take are outdoors during the daytime, so I prefer the device that performs best in those settings.
