Samsung Galaxy Note Smartphone/Tablet Review
20 March 2012
Excerpt: It is probably fair to say that everyone who likes tech thinks they want a tablet… with the new iPad raising the stakes as far as potential performance and screen quality go and ASUS launching the ultra-flexible, superbly built Transformer Prime the desirability is definitely there. The thing is though that tablets do have the potential to be yet another device to throw in a bag and when on the move it is near essential to have a 3G/4G model for continued use.
Excerpt: AT&T has sent us the very divisive Samsung Galaxy Note for review which is one of their newest 4G LTE Smarphones running Android. The Samsung Galaxy Note straddles the line between phone and tablet.
Summary: I've gotta say, I was a little skeptical about the Galaxy Note when it arrived at my door. I'd seen people using it, and the concept of a jumbo smartphone seemed a little goofy to me. I thought my iPhone 4 fit in my hand just right, and although I wasn't opposed to the idea of something slightly bigger, a 5.3" smartphone just seemed... well, too big.
After using the Note for about a week and a half, I think I've warmed to it. Now, it's my iPhone that feels too small.
Samsung Galaxy Note vs Galaxy Nexus – similar hardware, different experience
13 March 2012
Conclusion: Both the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus cost about the same, but provide a different experience in everyday use – the Note’s bigger display is better for work and play, but the Nexus is a lot more portable, and the 4.65 inch display is still good enough for anything you’d want to use it for – the choice is pretty difficult, indeed.
Conclusion: Samsung has done an excellent job in that regards with the Galaxy Note. It carries over from the Galaxy S II and retains all of its advantages, namely excellent screen and performance while maintaining appreciable dimensions. The included S-Pen is a bonus and though in its current form it doesn’t offer much, the possibilities are vast.
Excerpt: While many of today's better smartphones offer dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, alongside plenty of onboard storage, one of the easiest differentiating points between smartphones today has become the screen--size, resolution, and screen technology are all considerations. Samsung is pushing the former limits of smartphone screen sizes with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy Note.
Pros: 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, Device feels speedy and responsive, Spacious and gorgeous 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display (1280x800), 4G connectivity
Cons: Phone looks a little large when held to one's ear, No Android 4.0—yet
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.
