Excerpt: Okay I normally don't review phones but I have review this one.
> easy to text on it because the screen is large therefore the keyboard is spread out
>fun to play games on -- kiss carrying my iPad and pantech element everywhere.
> battery life is okay. It seems to be getting better as I have had it longer.
Cons. -- NONE!!!!!!!!!!! That I can say. I love my note and now my son and husband want one.
Excerpt: I have been an Apple lover since the first iPhone came out, and have bought every one since. Purchased this phone because I have an Android based tablet and felt that I could handle the change. Well, I did more than handle it... I enjoyed it. This phone does everything I could want or need.
-Torrent download support (BIG plus for me)
-Extremely fast menus, fast gpu, excellent video quality.
Excerpt: First and foremost, let's get this out there. This phone is big. I mean real big. That being so, you must understand that it definitely is not for everyone. This phone has lots of features to take advantage of that size including the Galaxy S pen. Before you judge this phone, please go into a store and feel how large it is as this will play a role into how you use (or not use) this phone.

Excerpt: Samsung solved my choice: whether to spend money for my first iPad/tablet, or to just upgrade my old Windows (HTC Fuze) smartphone. My Samsung Galaxy Note, SGH i717 has been the innovative and impressive answer. While visiting my carrier's (AT&T) store, it was Samsung Galaxy Note's impressively large screen display that drew my attention. They demonstrated the Samsung S-Pen, which transformed this device into an electronic notepad.
Excerpt: I love this phone i recently purchased it at target for 279 and fell in love with it i use to owen a iphone 4s and decided it was time to give Android a chance. at first i was a little worried about the size but i love the fact of how big the screen is
Pros : 4G LTE
Tons of customization
speed of the phone
Pros: Outstanding screen resolution Great camera performance Screen size and form factor Stylus pen is useful after you learn to use it Impressive LTE network speeds in New York Speaker phone is loud and clear
Cons: Size might put off some people Android still in need to catch up to iOs quality apps. Due to size, I can't use it for my gym workouts and runs.
Excerpt: Runs smooth but does get quite hot to the touch at times. Mine, along with all 4 display models at the store, has bad graphics/screen issues with displaying dark shades, what others are calling crushed blacks (easily noticable at night). Also had problems with banding (shading). Both issues were visible in 1st and 3rd party applications. Not sure if the issues were software or hardware issues.
Pros: Good battery life for the size of the screen, Ran smooth
Excerpt: Before this phone i had: Xperia X10, Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab, Desire HD, Nexus S, Galaxy S II, iPhone 4 and after these phone i buy Galaxy Note. Now i can say: If you want to have: SMAAAAAAAART PHONE : buy Galaxy Note If you want to have: SMART PHOOOOOOONE : go to another phone...
