Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Rivals iPhone 6

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was officially released in October 2014 as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The Note 4 is a 4th Generation android phablet with some extremely impressive specifications to rival the iPhone 6, Apple's latest contender in the high end mobile phone market.

If you are in the market to buy a new mobile phone and you want a powerhouse at your finger tips then the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is definitely worth your consideration. Even if you are not already an android user and you are looking to upgrade your iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 now may be the time to switch, 

The Samsung Note 4 is arguably the best mobile phone on the market today and certainly ranks in the top 5 mobile phones along with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3, HTC One M8, 

The main criticism of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has been its high price tag. However remember you are not just getting a phone but a phablet. Now several months after its release the price has dropped making it more affordable and reducing the gap between it and other high end mobile phones.

The key specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that are sure to impress and delight would-be users are: 

  • 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
  • Android 4.4 KitKat operating system
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • 5.7-inches Quad HD Super AMOLED screen that is crystal clear
  • 16 MP front camera and 3.7 MP rear camera
  • Micro SD slot up to 128 GB
  • Samsung's TouchWiz interface
  • Multi-tasking capability
  • S Pen
  • 3200 mAh battery with 50% recharge in 30 minutes

Don't go past the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 without at least taking a look. You are not just getting a mobile phone but a powerful tablet capable of fulfilling most of your mobile phone needs in an all-in-one device.

Depression Symptoms and Signs and Help

Symptoms of Depression - How to Spot the Signs and Where to Get Help

Depression is a debilitating illness experienced by many people in New Zealand. About 15% of the population are diagnosed with severe depression. 25 percent of the population will have a depressive episode at some time in their lives. Women are thought to be twice as likely to experience depression as men.

Physical and chemical changes such as menopause can bring about depression. Depleted levels of Serotonin in the brain can lead to feelings of low mood. Winter months mean less exposure to sunshine and can lead to less Vitamin D in the body.

Depression is often a grief related response to unexpected changes that occur in one's life. Loss of a relationship, a job or a loved one can all trigger depression. Other common causes of depression are bullying, health issues, family crises and family relationship difficulties. Feeling low at these times is natural and part of the healing process.

However, if the low mood persists and can not be shaken then treatment for depression may need to be sought to avoid the development of severe depression.

There are many common signs and symptoms of depression apart from the obvious low mood and sadness. If you are experiencing depression you may notice some or all of these signs pertain to you or someone you know:
  • Loss of interest in normal pleasurable activities
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Harder to make everyday decisions
  • Irritability
  • Feeling tired and without energy
  • Changes in sleep patterns - oversleeping or lack of sleep
  • Overeating or undereating
  • Loss of libido and interest in sex
  • Avoidance of others
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Low self esteem
  • Suicidal thoughts and thoughts about death
  • Loss of motivation
  • Severely critical of self
  • Increased levels of anxiety

If you are experiencing these depression symptoms or you know someone who is get help. Visit you local GP. Depression and anxiety are easily treated with medication. Alternative natural remedies like St John's Wort is also effective. Counselling is another good option. Many people report that a combination of both medication and therapy is helpful in coming to understand what is troubling them.
