Samsung Galaxy Note
4 October 2014
Summary: Despite that, we love the Samsung Galaxy Note. The fact it’s ultra slim means there’s no effort in slipping it into a pocket, and once you get used to the extra size, you’ll not want to go back. Especially if you browse the web lots or enjoy watching movies on the move.
Conclusion: Large in size, humongous in potential, the Samsung Galaxy Note might not be a first smartphone for the masses, what it is however, is a device that will enhance the experience of many a business user. The Note’s only downfall in popularity is in how much it has limited its prospective target audience.
Excerpt: For our smart device reviews, we're going to do something a little different here. PC hardware can be reviewed with hard numbers, charts and all that jazz, but the same can't really be said for smart devices. We're going to concentrate more on the look, feel and experience of the device, rather than numbers. After all, virtually all personal use of a smart device comes down to these factors, but we will still include some benchmarks so you can see how they perform.
Summary: With one of the best displays and excellent multitasking abilities, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a great choice for people who want to create art, play games and watch movies while posting quips on social networking sites – just don't expect the battery to last all day.
Pros: The very sharp and bright 2560 x 1600-resolution display is one of the best available.
Cons: The battery only lasted 7 hours and 44 minutes.
Summary: With its huge screen and throwback stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note with Android 4.0 is a polarizing smartphone that winks at tablet territory. Those who like their screens extra-large will find a top-notch device that lets multimedia shine. The S Pen adds some artistic potential, but for some, the phone will simply be too big.
Pros: T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the S Note app, and a 5.3-inch HD screen that's ideal for showcasing multimedia. It has 4G, a great 8-megapixel camera, and a souped-up S Pen stylus that brings new ways to interact with your phone.
Cons: The Galaxy Note's 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.
Summary: Do yourself a favour and go get the Galaxy Note. It’s a powerful tablet, that’s very thinly disguised as a smartphone. You will invariably spend 80 percent of your time doing things on it that you’d otherwise be doing on a tablet or a computer even. And just consider that it can make and receive calls as an added bonus.
Excerpt: Samsung's new Galaxy Note is a unique device in the smartphone market. Straddling the line between a smartphone and a tablet, the Note features a massive 5.3-inch display, which is considerably larger than the screen on any other smartphone available today (just see the image below sitting alongside an iPhone). Because of this, the Note is rather unwieldy in the hand, and nearly impossible to use one handed.
Conclusion: Reiterating the obvious (again), the Samsung Galaxy Note isn’t for everyone, and in fact, it might take some people a good amount of time to get used to accepting its glorified status as being some kind of hybrid device. But simply, that’s where we find all of its allure, as it’s able to come off as being something totally fresh from the usual set of smartphones we’ve been seeing.
Pros: Extremely large display, Streamlined construction, Exceptional battery life
Cons: Some sluggish performance, Too large to use with one hand, No Ice Cream Sandwich (yet)
