15 awesome movies you should watch on your HD smartphone

During your morning commute, one of the best ways to pass the time is by watching movies on your smartphone. But not all phones were created equal when it comes to a great viewing experience comparable to watching your favourite movies on your TV at home.

Two phones that should definitely be in your hands for mobile movie viewing are the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 4G+ and the Samsung GALAXY Note Edge 4G+. Not only will you watch on a 5.7″ and 5.6″ screen so you can see your favourite actor’s face and a lot of other details better, you will also enjoy it on a Quad HD SUPER AMOLED display. This means the resolution quality is four times better than a regular HD! With a wide colour spectrum that has more than 90% Adobe® colour reproduction rate, you will feel as if you are watching the scene right in front of you in real life.

Plus, colours are more vivid and vibrant when compared to an LCD screen. Just take a look at how the colours compare here:


In the case of the Edge, it goes one better. With notifications going to the Edge Screen instead of the main screen, your viewing pleasure will be as uninterrupted as it can be.

But as they say, the proof is in the pudding – or in this case, the viewing. On your next commute with your Samsung GALAXY Note 4 4G+ or Samsung GALAXY Note Edge 4G+, check out how your phone’s display breathes new life into these great movies. And if you don’t have it yet, isn’t it time that you do?

Spoiler alert: One thing in common with all these movies are lush visuals that will just look totally amazing on the Quad HD SUPER AMOLED display.
