Summary: When I received this phone because I had one previously I thought this on was not the same, however as I began to study this phone I realized that it had some features that my previous phone did not have and that impressed me. Since then I have learned a lot more about it and I think it is very cool.
Summary: Not being a hi-tech person, I had initial challenges trying to find my way on using it. But as I am getting the hang of it I am starting to enjoy it. But I cannot enjoy all the potential the phone has to offer, as the service provider is not up to scratch.
Excerpt: This was my first truly BIG smartphone and i must say it was just that! The battery life was very poor but everything else about this phone blows the doors ( or cases off) everything else. I found myself not using my tablet after getting this phone...
Summary: The phone is fast and very reliable. It does show a little bit of lag but nothing of concern. The thing I was more interested in when buying the Note was reading programming books in PDF. I do have a 10 inch (1024x768 px) tablet for reading those, but, because of the size, is not very portable or easy to hold. Books look a little sharper in the Note. The screen is small compared to the tablet, but I have good sight and can read almost any book without problems.
Summary: I use my phone alittle below average, but I have a note 10.1 and I pretty much can do the samething with my phone. I'd say anybody who wants a phone that does everything, this phone is for you. Make sure you have a car charger because the battery doesn't last long, but it still a great phone!.
5 star pocket Computer Tablet Smart Phone. I am never without it.
9 December 2012
Summary: 5 star pocket Computer Tablet Smart Phone. I am never without it. I keep it in a shirt pocket at all times except when it is under my pillows. I bought the international model a while ago and used it with my T-Mobile account ($30/mo. unlimited, Walmart) until one made to use with their network was released. This takes advantage of their 4G network and it's super fast. The best gadget I own.
Excerpt: My previous phone was the Samsung Infuse which I loved. I am just getting older and my eyes aren't as good as they used to be! The NOTE is perfect for this problem. Is it big? YES. I like that, others may not. The keyboard has an option for one handed use for those that multi task with their phones. I don't keep it in my pocket, so I don't have a problem with the size in that area. I love the display, the camera and the speed. The Internet browsing is solid.
Summary: Here I goofed. I ordered this thinking I was getting a Note 2. When I returned the product, I paid the shipping out of my pocket. The company that provided the product charged me over $40 for shipping and restocking.
