Review: Samsung Galaxy Note
10 March 2012
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. Given the latter, Samsung has announced two larger variants of the Galaxy Note so it maybe worth holding onto your cash for now.
Excerpt: Samsung says that the Galaxy Note is neither a smartphone nor a tablet, but rather a bit of both. It's designed for users who'd rather not want to carry a smartphone and a tablet simultaneously, but who'd like the functionality of both devices.
Summary: With its huge screen and throwback stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a polarising smartphone that winks at tablet territory. The S Pen adds some artistic potential, but, for some, the phone will just simply be too big.
Pros: 5.3-inch HD screen is ideal for showcasing multimedia, Great 8-megapixel camera, Souped-up S Pen stylus brings new ways to interact with your phone
Cons: S Pen is small, has a delayed response and requires a little training to use, The phone will be awkwardly large for some, and it doesn't fit easily into pockets
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: 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
Samsung Galaxy Note Review: The World’s First Tablet/Phone Hybrid ?

Excerpt: Apparently Apple has already decided that their current iPhone is the de facto size for a mobile. They never really consulted us, but for them 3.5-inches is more than enough for a mobile. Well, their closest smartphone competitor Samsung has other ideas, in fact, they think you should be able to choose whatever screen size you […]
Conclusion: There aren't many things we can complain about with the Galaxy Note. Samsung has taken what is already a good handset and built on it to make an even better one. The only question you have to ask is, "Is it too big for me?" When it launched, it was a bit of a mystery. Was the world ready for a device that was set half way between Tabletland and Phoneville? The answer is, it clearly was, and you just have to look at the interest in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 .
Conclusion: To conclude, the Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the best Android devices I’ve ever used. The 8MP camera, high-quality screen and ultra-fast CPU, to name a few, are absolutely amazing. I, personally, like the design of the Galaxy Note, however I can see why some would not because the overall design hasn’t really changed between the Galaxy S2, Galaxy Nexus or the Galaxy Note.
