Samsung recently introduced its Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge. Both phones are extremely powerful on paper, boasting some of the powerful components on their respective spec sheets. But the real question is, how does all that translate into everyday performance for a user? And how does it compare to flagships from other manufacturers? Thanks to a few videos from PhoneArena, we were able to find out just that.

The Samsung Galaxy note 4 has been compared for speed with the HTC One M8, the LG G3 and Apple's iPhone 5s. Check them all out below to understand how Samsung's latest and greatest phablet holds off against the competition.

Before we get into the thick of things, here's a disclaimer: "The Galaxy Note 4 unit that participated in this race probably wasn't running a perfectly final software build, suggesting that things may be improved when the device launches officially."

Also, these are just cold start tests, which involve firing up basic apps and navigating to different areas of the phone's software. Results might be different when it comes to actual.
