Samsung Galaxy Note Review
12 April 2012
Excerpt: Having first got a taste of what the Samsung Galaxy Note can offer at this years CES we were grateful to Clove for sending us a review sample so we could then have a proper go on what we can only describe as an ideal compromise between a smartphone and a tablet device.
Excerpt: , I found the idea intriguing. Here was a jumbo-sized smartphone with all the benefits of dual-core processors, an eight-megapixel camera capable of 1080p HD video recording with the added convenience of a large, vivid screen.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note is of particular interest for three reasons: it has a ginormous screen, it’s designed to be used with a stylus, and it sits in a category of devices that has seen more than its fair share of failures.
Excerpt: The Galaxy Note was a surprising addition to Samsung's smartphone stable when announced last year, it seemed a bold step to release a handset which blurred the boundary between mobile phone and tablet, and nobody expected it to do as well as it has.
Conclusion: Overall, if you’re looking for a device that has the best of the tablet world and the best of the smartphone world, I’d definitely recommend checking out the Samsung Galaxy Note. With the ability to pick it up online for around £500, it’s in direct competition with both the iPhone 4S and the iPad.
Conclusion: But in conclusion, any buying decision will ultimately come down to the Galaxy Note’s size and that stylus: If this inbetweener at 5.3 inches hits your sweet spot, you’ll love the Note. And if you yearn for the yesteryear of the stylus, you’ll love the device even more.
Excerpt: What is the ideal size for a tablet or smartphone? That’s the question manufacturers are asking themselves as they try and find that sweet spot for consumers. Do customers want something small enough to fit into a pocket or would they rather opt for more real estate with a larger screen.
Pros: Solid design, Beautiful screen, Solid camera
Summary: Samsung’s Galaxy Note has all the trappings of a great phone. Its re-skinned version of Android gingerbread is understated and makes useful changes. Its screen is gorgeous to look at and a joy to use.
