Samsung Galaxy Note review
12 February 2014
Conclusion: Large in size, humongous in potential, the Samsung Galaxy Note might not be a first smartphone for the masses, what it is however, is a device that will enhance the experience of many a business user. The Note’s only downfall in popularity is in how much it has limited its prospective target audience.
Conclusion: It’s a gigantic Android phone with a 5.3-inch screen. One of the best Android devices Samsung has ever made. Once you use it, it will be hard as hell to go back to a small screen. And it’s fast as hell too, and the battery life is phenomenal with 2500 mAh of power. You would think it’d be terrible because the screen size just big, to the contrary. I streamed Money Masters for 3.5 hours over 4G full screen and still had 30% battery remaining.
Excerpt: For our smart device reviews, we're going to do something a little different here. PC hardware can be reviewed with hard numbers, charts and all that jazz, but the same can't really be said for smart devices. We're going to concentrate more on the look, feel and experience of the device, rather than numbers. After all, virtually all personal use of a smart device comes down to these factors, but we will still include some benchmarks so you can see how they perform.
Conclusion: This is your time, T-Mobile loyal fans, to finally attain the massive handheld device known as the Galaxy Note for your own. You've had the opportunity to pick up the international version for one gigantic wad of cash before, as it did (and does) work on T-Mobile bands, but now is the time when you can actually purchase an affordable version right from the T-Mobile store with 2-year contract.
Summary: With its huge screen and throwback stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note with Android 4.0 is a polarizing smartphone that winks at tablet territory. Those who like their screens extra-large will find a top-notch device that lets multimedia shine. The S Pen adds some artistic potential, but for some, the phone will simply be too big.
Pros: T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the S Note app, and a 5.3-inch HD screen that's ideal for showcasing multimedia. It has 4G, a great 8-megapixel camera, and a souped-up S Pen stylus that brings new ways to interact with your phone.
Cons: The Galaxy Note's S Pen is small, has a delayed response, and requires a little training to use. The phone will be awkwardly large for some, and it doesn't fit easily into pockets.
Conclusion: The Samsung GALAXY Note is a very interesting device because of the threat it poses to other dedicated devices. The Note combines all that you can do on netbook, notebook and desktop and adds functions of a tablet into a device that compromises between size. The GALAXY Note manages to do everything you ask of it without much fuss because it's a very powerful computer in the palm of your hands.
Conclusion: Well, 5.3” as a tablet is incredibly perfect, but for a phone, it is awkward and unnatural. But, for those that only want one device instead of a tablet and a phone, the Note will be one of your best bets. I myself would probably settle upon one of the 4.5” screens, just so I wouldn’t look like a tool in public when on the phone. But the Note really came through.
Summary: When I first heard about the Samsung Galaxy Note and saw the specifications, and the size of the device, I didn’t think this would be the sort of device I would like to use on a daily basis. I used the Samsung Galaxy Note as my handset for about two weeks and was pleasantly surprised with the experience, whilst it is one of the largest smartphones I have used it certainly was a fun handset to use.
