Review: Samsung Galaxy Note
27 April 2012
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.
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: 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.
