Samsung Galaxy Note I717 review: Pushing the envelope
19 February 2012
Conclusion: Like it or not, there is nothing else like the Samsung Galaxy Note I717 on the U.S. market at the moment. The Korean giant deserves a lot of credit for carving a new niche in a market, which is seriously saturated with all sorts of smartphones and tablets.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, LTE network connectivity, 5.3" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of HiDef resolution (800 x 1280 pixels), Android OS v2.3.6 with TouchWiz 4 launcher, 1.5 GHz dual-core Scorpion CPU, Adreno 220 GPU, Snapdragon S3...
Cons: Won't fit comfortably in every pocket, Difficult for one-handed use, No dedicated camera key, The Exynos chipset of the global version is significantly faster- both in benchmarks and real life, HD screen uses PenTile matrix lowering perceived resolution, No FM radio (the global version has one)
Hands on: Samsung's Galaxy Note engages, perplexes
17 February 2012
Summary: It's obvious that the S Pen is far more than a novelty and provides some pretty powerful touch technology. However, I would recommend that anybody who is considering buying the Note first give it a thorough road test in the AT&T store, especially the S Pen functions.
Pros: Large, impressive display; fine performance; good camera; high-capacity 2,500 mAh battery; digital pen (if you find one useful)
Cons: Big and heavy for a smartphone; calling can be awkward; digital pen (if you don't find one useful)
Conclusion: Reiterating the obvious (again), the Samsung Galaxy Note isn’t for everyone, and in fact, it might take some people a good amount of time to get used to accepting its glorified status as being some kind of hybrid device.
Pros: Extremely large display, Streamlined construction, Exceptional battery life
Cons: Some sluggish performance, Too large to use with one hand, No Ice Cream Sandwich (yet)
Excerpt: Note : Our original review was of the unlocked, £499.99 ($784) GSM Galaxy Note. We've updated the review to reflect our impressions and tests of the $299 (with contract) AT&T model as well.

Cons: One size fits none, A couple of software bugs, Handwriting recognition could be better, One size fits none, A couple of software bugs, Handwriting recognition could be better, One size fits none, A couple of software bugs, Handwriting recognition could be better

Excerpt: Announced back in September last year, the Samsung Galaxy Note is quite a unique Samsung device since it's a mix between a smartphone and a tablet. Officially seen as a smartphone, it comes quite close to a tablet, thanks to its huge 5.3" HD Super AMOLED display.
Excerpt: It's review time! Is it a phone? A tablet? A phablet? Call it what you will, but the Samsung Galaxy Note is one big device. Packing a 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos processor, Galaxy Note comes to the table with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD (800x1280) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video...
Excerpt: Aaron reviews the giant Samsung Galaxy Note , a hybrid between a smartphone and tablet. Galaxy Note offers a 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos CPU, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD (800x1280) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, a large 2,500 mAh battery, and...
Summary: Samsung have produced many quality smart phones and tablets, but the new Samsung Galaxy Note is something a little bit different so I thought I would write a Samsung Galaxy Note Review. It is what I would best describe as a hybrid version of a smartphone.
Pros: Thin and sleek, 1.4Ghz CPU is extremely fast, Great battery life that lasts for days, Gorgeous 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, High-quality 8MP camera, Ease of use with S Pen
Cons: Comprised almost entirely of plastic, Requires two hands to text due to large size, Awkward against head for voice calls
Conclusion: The international Samsung Galaxy Note was the best Android smartphone of 2011 and the AT&T version makes for the best of early 2012 if you're looking for a pocket computer more than a voice phone.
Pros: Huge and lovely high res display, fast HSPA+ data speeds, very fast CPU, great voice quality.
Cons: This is a very large phone, import version is expensive.
