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.
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...
Summary: Samsung may think it bridges the gap between two different mobile devices, but the Galaxy Note GT-N7000 ends up being neither one thing nor the other as a result. The big screen certainly looks great, but the overall size makes it awkward to use and it’s just not as practical as either a more...
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.
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.
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.
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
