Samsung Galaxy Note Review


The Samsung Galaxy Note introduces a new class of handset which features a huge 5.3” display. Internally, we call this a “fablet”, but the Galaxy Note has truly been designed as a handet. As such it is pocketable (yes, even [...]

The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the best 4G LTE device that we had the opportunity to test (the RAZR Maxx would be a contender for that title), and the combination of a large 5.3” screen, LTE speeds and a good battery life makes this a rather unique...

Review Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 Smartphone Tablet/MID


Smartphone or tablet? "It's all in the screen size" - Samsung advertises with this slogan for its currently biggest smartphone, aka "smartlet", in Germany. If everyday use meets up to the slogan and if it's possible to work and handle the behemoth...

Gigantic screen, Brilliant colors, Screen's good brightness, Powerful overall system, The general idea of the "smartlet

Mobility, Price, Nothing actually, but you can't have enough battery life

Samsung Galaxy Note Review


Very few smartphones deserve the attribution “courageous.” The Samsung Galaxy Note unequivocally does. It is courageous because it is a valiant attempt at breaking down the smartphone-computing device-tablet conundrum that so many of us have faced over...

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....

Samsung Galaxy Note (T-Mobile)


The Samsung Galaxy Note for T-Mobile ($249.99 with contract) is exactly what it looks like: the largest smartphone available today. And it runs a recent version of the Android OS on a fast, inexpensive network. If you want a big-screen device that's...

Huge Display. Fast Internet speeds. Ships with Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich

Too big for many people to use one-handed. 4.0 isn't the most recent version on Android any more

Starved for smartphone screen real estate? The 5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note for T-Mobile gives you the biggest window on the world that you can still fit into a pocket.

Samsung Galaxy Note ( T-Mobile)


After a fairly successful worldwide debut, Samsung is bringing its supersize Samsung Galaxy Note to T-Mobile on August 8. Its big 'n' tall dimensions are the elephant in the room, an uberlarge Samsung Galaxy S II series phone that dances into tablet...

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...

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.

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...

Samsung Galaxy Note for T-Mobile review


More InfoSamsung Galaxy Note reviewAT&T Galaxy Note reviewT-Mobile officially confirms Samsung Galaxy Note, more details in coming

Beautiful display ; Excellent camera ; Top-notch S Pen productivity apps ; Cohesive user interface

Performance is no longer cutting-edge ; Lacks notification light

While the Galaxy Note's specs no longer feel bleeding-edge, we've yet to see a pen-enabled phone as pleasant to use as this.

Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Now With Android 4.0


The Samsung Galaxy Note ($300 with a two-year contract; price as of February 14, 2012) has been out for a while internationally, but on February 19, the 5.3-inch phone with a stylus-like pen will arrive on U.S. shores exclusively on AT&T's 4G LTE...

Large, bright display ; Snappy performance ; Pen works well with user interface

A bit too large for a phone ; Not enough apps support the pen

With its large display and stylus-like pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a refreshing departure from the smartphone pack, but its design won't please everyone. Additionally, not enough apps support the pen right now.

Big Phone, Big Hassle


The Samsung Galaxy Note's massive, 5.3-inch display is great for watching movies and playing games. But it's just too big for everything else.

Samsung Galaxy Note Review


In the last few years, Samsung has risen to become the second largest phone maker in the world, and it's already nipping at Nokia's heels. The key to a lot of its success in the smartphone market has been to mimic Apple's devices and interface, but now...

Built-in stylus is a nice option ; Huge 5.3-inch AMOLED screen ; Decent battery life ; LTE network is fast

Awkward to make calls on ; Difficult to use with one hand ; Writing and drawing isn't the best on a touchscreen ; Strange screen size causes some app issues ; Bloatware apps are annoying ; Camera is slow

Samsung hasn't made a huge mistake with the Galaxy Note, but for a majority of people, it's a bit too large to be a good phone.

Samsung Galaxy Note review


Note: Our original review was of the unlocked, £499.99 ($784) GSM Galaxy Note. We've updated the review to reflect our impressions and tests of the $299 (with contract) AT&T model as well. Check out the Connectivity and Software sections, in...

Solid HSPA+ performance ; Gorgeous display ; High quality camera ; Runs Android 4.0

One size fits none ; A couple of software bugs ; Handwriting recognition could be better

The ultimate converged device or just a 5.3-inch gimmick?
