Samsung is one of those companies in the world who have always taken those little steps to make sure that those small set of people are not disappointed. How they’ve done it? Well, they add those accessibility features in all of the phones that they manufacture. And adding those accessibility features on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has just made them love more.
The interesting thing here is that the there are 2 new features in the Galaxy Note 4 when we compare to the Galaxy S5. But at the same time, there are 2 missing features on the Galaxy Note 4, or probably removed from it, if we say that in other words. Majority of the features remain unchanged, which mean that the accessibility features on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are identical to what we find on the Galaxy S5. So it would be better if you read our post where we explain all the accessibility features on the Galaxy S5 and then hop over to this post to get a clear view about what we are talking about.
So, without any further ado, here it is ladies and gentlemen.
The Accessibility features on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Sound Detectors – We found a feature that is similar to this one on the Galaxy S5, which was the Baby crying detector. This feature, on the Galaxy Note 4, is similar to that except that it detects your Doorbell. All you have to do, is place your smartphone within 10 feet of your doorbell, and it will send a notification to your Samsung Gear smartwatch whenever it hears your doorbell ring.
But one thing you should remember while using this feature, is that it will disable the S Voice or the Google Now always listening features.
Hover Zoom – This one is kind of gimmicky, but it does work in real life. Also, this feature is specific only to the Galaxy Note 4 because it takes advantage of the S Pen to zoom in on the content of the screen. So when you enable this feature and hover your S Pen over a certain area of the screen, it will then zoom in there. There are 3 different levels that you can zoom, namely; small, medium, large. But one downside of this feature, is that it disables Air view, Air command, Reduce Screen Size, TalkBack, and Direct pen input. But if you really need to zoom that way, then doing so through the S Pen is the best way.
Hand wave to answer/end calls – The hand wave gesture to answer and reject calls in missing on the Galaxy Note 4 that is found on the Galaxy S5.

There is a huge chance that you might simply not use these features on your Galaxy Note 4 because you just might not feel that you need them.

So if you know someone who would smile because of these accessibility features on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, then you should definitely let them know. Who knows, it could completely change the way they use their smartphone.
