Review of the Samsung Galaxy Note (AT&T)
2 March 2012
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Note has a terrific set of features—LTE speed, excellent HD display, superb camera, fast processor—that make it one of the best phones on the market. And on those features alone, it's easy to highly recommend it. But the real wildcard is its size, and that's a question you need to decide for yourself.
Conclusion: The Galaxy Note is a device that is fighting on two fronts and it does it fairly well. As a phone it does well until you actually put it up to your ear to make or receive a phone call and that is when it looks/feels awkward. As a tablet slab, it actually does well. The HD screen is super sharp despite the fact that the technology used for it is Pentile.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note is in a class of its own, and while many in the industry - myself included - consider the Note to be a niche device, AT&T disagrees and has committed to giving it full marketing support. Size aside, the Galaxy Note packs an impressive spec list that any high-end smartphone fan would like, and the S Pen functionality is useful. But for many, this is a phone that will require two hands to operate effectively, thus diminishing some of the...
Pros: Dual-core Snapdragon processor makes the Note speedy; AT&T 4G LTE connectivity; battery life is great.
Cons: The phone will be too large for some; $299.99 price point is a bit on the high side.
Excerpt: It wasn’t all that long ago that a 4.3-inch screen on smartphone was considered too large by many. Now, there are multiple 4-inch and larger phones on every carrier . Even Google’s flagship device exceeds the 4.3-inch mark — the Galaxy Nexus comes in at a 4.65. The Samsung Galaxy Note has sought to raise the bar with a 5.3-inch screen. AT&T dubbed the Galaxy Note a “superphone”, while socially the name “ phablet ” seems to be growing in popularity.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the best 4G LTE device that we had the opportunity to test (the RAZR Maxx would be a contender for that title), and the combination of a large 5.3” screen, LTE speeds and a good battery life makes this a rather unique and efficient combo. The only obvious thing that could make the package better is an Android 4.0 update that would push the user interface (UI) responsiveness to the next level.
