Note supremacy (or Note supremacism) is the belief that Samsung Galaxy Note series mobile phones are superior compared to other models of mobile phones.
The rich functionality of the first four Samsung Galaxy Note series phones has turned many technology enthusiasts and power users into Note supremacists.
Note supremacy has peaked in 2013 and 2014 with the Galaxy Note 3 being the first mobile phone to record video footage with 2160p (4K) at 30 frames per second, and one of the earliest phones with 1080p at 60fps and 720p at 120fps video recording.
The Galaxy Note 3 was equipped with Samsung Air View support for both fingers and stylus, thermometer and hygrometer sensors and a pop-up window multi-tasking functionality.
While the Galaxy Note 4 lacked those two sensors and support for Air Viewing with fingers (also known as TSP hovering), the multitasking capabilities have improved with the ability to transition applications directly between pop-up and split-screen viewing mode.
The camera of the Galaxy Note 4 has been significantly improved with the new Sony Exmor RS IMX 240 image sensor (Note 3: IMX 135) and optical image stabilization for both photos and videos (Note 3: none) and full 16-Megapixel (5232×2988 pixels) still images during 1080p HDR video recording (Note 3 and S4: 9.6 Megapixels, 4128×2322, no HDR).
Note supremacy has significantly declined among power users with the late 2015 release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, which lacked key features of preceeding devices, including but not limited to a user-replaceable battery, MicroSD expandable storage, MHL-to-HDMI connection.
