Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 16GB (Rogers)
30 March 2012
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. It may sound like a niche product on paper, but Samsung designed the Galaxy Note for the masses, and it’s already moved a ton of them. It turns out there’s a lot to like about the Galaxy Note, and it all starts with the shamelessly large screen.
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: 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.
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: 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
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. Its processor allows for demanding multitasking and its camera offers both detailed still photography and clear HD video capture. However, its main selling point (its large screen) is also its downfall, as it’s just impractical as an everyday device.
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 […]
