Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note is an interesting device that’s been designed as an all-in-one smartphone and tablet. Whether it holds any appeal will depend on you getting your head (and hands) around its mammoth size.
Pros: Excellent 5.3in Super AMOLED screen, S-Pen is unique and works reasonably well, Great battery life and excellent performance
Cons: Uncomfortably large, Feels awkward when making phone calls, Button on S-Pen is poorly designed
Conclusion: The net result of all this is that the Galaxy Note is an outstanding device yet remains one that is curiously hard to recommend. Its size puts it in a class of its own, and it is a truly awesome piece of hardware.
Summary: So I managed to get my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note or as some are calling it The Phablet. I’ve only had the phablet for a day now and I can safely say, that it is more phone than tablet and has the feel of a larger Samsung Galaxy S2.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note is much like the Samsung Galaxy S II, but is much larger. It is by far the largest smartphone on the market today and features a huge high-resolution Super AMOLED display.
Summary: I’ve been using the Samsung Galaxy Note as my primary device for 2 weeks now. It was clear that Samsung didn’t quite know how to market this device or even who their demographic was, we can see this by their confused ads.
Pros: Amazing display quality, Good assortment of video codecs for movie playback, Excellent build quality, light but sturdy
Cons: Too large for the average consumer, Lag at times, slight stutters, Touchwiz – Just doesn’t do it for me
Summary: Do yourself a favour and go get the Galaxy Note. It’s a powerful tablet, that’s very thinly disguised as a smartphone. You will invariably spend 80 percent of your time doing things on it that you’d otherwise be doing on a tablet or a computer even.
Summary: While it’s certainly not for every hand size, Samsung’s Galaxy Note proves itself to be one big and impressive phone, making it a solid choice for someone after big buttons, a big screen, or anyone who isn’t quite sure whether they need a tablet at all.
Pros: Beautiful screen, Decent battery life, Surprisingly comfortable to use and hold
Cons: No 4G, Speed issues pop up occasionally, S-Pen is pressure sensitive, but only just, Runs older version of Android
Excerpt: Samsung's Galaxy Note is enormous, sparking the debate that the Note owes more to the tablet than the phone, or that it’s some sort of hybrid of the two. With a 5.3-inch screen, it dwarfs even the Sensation XL.
