Summary: If you're an avid internet browser, then the Galaxy Note makes more sense than the Galaxy S2. Many people are already confused whether to buy a smartphone or a tablet. Samsung has added to that confusion with its Galaxy Note. Samsung Galaxy Note has been positioned in such a way that it falls right between a smartphone and a tablet, offering the functionality of both. Galaxy Note sports a 5.3 inch HD Super Amoled display.
Pros: Big display, Amazing camera, Contacts management
Cons: High price, Uncovered camera lens, Plastic body
Summary: Phone or Tablet ? Samsung themselves have been unable to decide how to promote the Galaxy Note. With a massive 5.3″ screen , active digitizer, the Galaxy Note is also the perfect note taking device. How does it cope up as a phone ? Read the FoneArena Galaxy Note review to find out. For starters lets give you an idea about the size of the Note, thats the device next to the iPhone 4S.
Summary: Summary: The Galaxy Note has a large, vibrant and responsive screen, and is a good size for using 'notepad style' with the S Pen. However, it's too large to carry around as an everyday smartphone, and isn't as useful at home or in the office as a full-sized tablet.
Pros: Large, high-resolution Super AMOLED screen, Fast dual-core processor, Supports pen-based input, Good battery life
Cons: Too large to be an everyday phone, Too small to function well as a tablet, S Pen functionality could be more imaginatively implemented
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Note is quite an odd phone: put simply, the sheer size of it makes it harder to carry around than the average smartphone. If you need a large screen there’s no denying that the Note is one of the best out there, and its size makes video and web browsing a richer, more rewarding experience.
Summary: Look. I can’t find many bad points. That 2,500 mAh battery is “OK” – it’ll get you through the day, but due to the epic screen it’s not going to keep you going for days on end. The noise reduction can get upset with wind. Oh dear. I’m really picking at flies now. To be honest the Galaxy Note is another stand-out amazing handset from Samsung. It’s stunning to look at, lucious to view things on and brilliant to use.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note is the largest smartphone we've ever seen - its 5.3-inch Amoled HD display is even bigger than the Dell Streak's. It looks like a supersized Samsung Galaxy S2 , but has a faster 1.4GHz dual core processor and a stylus for onscreen note-taking and artistic scribbles. It impressed us when we first saw it at IFA for our Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Note , so we've been looking forward to this full review.
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Note review: Taking up a fair amount of real estate this 'phablet' lands with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display and heaps of potential Samsung Galaxy Note looks to create middle ground between smartphones and tablets. We got our hands on Samsung Galaxy Note at IFA for you to have a look at.
Conclusion: There’s much to like about the Samsung Galaxy Note. The screen is quite simply stunning; colourful, radiant and as finely defined as the word "dictionary". It’s super quick, and Samsung’s Touchwiz UI on top of Gingerbread is a joy to use. Watching movies on the display is a great experience, and it’s, perhaps, better suited in size to economy class flights than a 10-inch tablet. The camera is more than decent, offering both stills and video capture at high definitions.
Pros: Incredible HD Super AMOLED display with vibrant, searing colours and excellent sharpness, great with video playback, S Pen stylus is an interesting idea, massive footprint
Cons: Too big for a smartphone, not a whole lot of "S Pen" compatible software
