Samsung GALAXY Note Review
16 January 2012
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.
Summary: Smartphone or tablet? "It's all in the screen size" - Samsung advertises with this slogan for its currently biggest smartphone, aka "smartlet", in Germany. If everyday use meets up to the slogan and if it's possible to work and handle the behemoth reasonably can be read in our review.
Pros: Gigantic screen, Brilliant colors, Screen's good brightness, Powerful overall system, The general idea of the "smartlet"
Cons: Mobility, Price, Nothing actually, but you can't have enough battery life.
Samsung Galaxy Note vs Dell Streak 5 – how things have changed for the hybrids
9 January 2012
Conclusion: It seems that Samsung studied the hybrid phones niche quite a lot better than Dell, and no doubt they also learned a lot from the company’s mistakes with the Streak 5 (and 7, for that matter).
Conclusion: In short, after taking a few days/weeks to really get used to handling a larger phone, I have zero issues with it’s size and now am that much more satisfied with the Note. Do you have a Note and also had initial reservations with it’s size but now you’re okay with it?
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Note, a 5.3-inch handset with a pen for note-taking, drawing and do screen-shots. It runs on Android 2.3 with a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display, dual 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera. Galaxy Note comes with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and is able to run LTE and HSPA+.
Excerpt: In a world that is still grappling with the idea of how the smartphone and tablets will co-exist, Samsung has decided to introduce a a model in the slowly growing hybrid category. The limited demographic of tablet users aside, the masses still use their smartphone for most tasks the tablet would do.
Excerpt: Is it a phone, a tablet…or both? The Samsung Galaxy Note is sure to evoke some looks from passersby. With a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy Note is one of the largest smartphones available. Yet even with this enormous screen, Samsung has kept the design thin and stylish.
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
Excerpt: When Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Note , I had mixed feelings with the device. It’s got the genes of an impressive smartphone but a form factor that’s inching towards the tablet category. After having over a week’s time with the Samsung Galaxy Note and I’d like to share my verdict.
Conclusion: This may be out of many people's comfort zone. Way out. The Samsung Galaxy Note believes in bigger is better. In many ways it is. The WXGA Super AMOLED is more than any smartphone can offer and the powerful Exynos adds brains to beauty.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 5.3" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WXGA resolution (800 x 1280 pixels), Android OS v2.3.5 with TouchWiz 4 launcher, 1.4 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali-400MP GPU, Exynos chipset, 1GB of RAM, Pre-bundle...
Cons: Won’t fit comfortably in every pocket, Much harder for one-handed use than a regular smartphone, All-plastic body, No dedicated camera key, HD screen uses PenTile matrix lowering perceived resolution, Non-hot-swappable microSD card, Sub-par loudspeaker volume
