Samsung Galaxy Note I717 review: Pushing the envelope


Samsung has high hopes for the LTE packing Galaxy Note I717 in the United States. Since its launch during CES, the AT&T exclusive device has enjoyed a marketing push like no other Samsung offering to date, including the Galaxy S II lineup. It appeared...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; LTE network connectivity ; 5.3" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of HiDef resolution (800 x 1280 pixels) ; Android OS v2.3.6 with TouchWiz 4 launcher ; 1.5 GHz...

Won't fit comfortably in every pocket ; Difficult for one-handed use ; No dedicated camera key ; The Exynos chipset of the global version is significantly faster- both in benchmarks and real life ; HD screen uses PenTile matrix lowering perceived...

Like it or not, there is nothing else like the Samsung Galaxy Note I717 on the U.S. market at the moment. The Korean giant deserves a lot of credit for carving a new niche in a market, which is seriously saturated with all sorts of smartphones and...

Samsung Galaxy Note LTE vs Apple iPhone 4S


Storming onto the scene, the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE has proven itself as one captivating smartphone that's very different from mostly everything else, but it's going to take more than BIG talk to take away the iPhone's grasp on the market, so let's...

Here’s the deal people. We’re well aware that the iPhone 4S is a venerable smartphone that’s sure to continue with success, as it has done so in the past countless times, but this latest version doesn’t quite have the same level of fresh appeal found...

Samsung Galaxy Note LTE Review


The Samsung Galaxy Note came to fruition back last fall pushing the limits of how big is too big for today's modern smartphone. The insanely large device is finally making its way to AT&T's lineup with 4G LTE connectivity in tow to match its...

Extremely large display ; Streamlined construction ; Exceptional battery life

Some sluggish performance ; Too large to use with one hand ; No Ice Cream Sandwich (yet)

Of course, there’s always the matter of pricing, which will set you back $299.99 with your signature on a 2-year contract. Hands down, it’s one of the most expensive devices to be sold by AT&T, but then again, when you factor in its high-end hardware,...

Samsung Galaxy Note Review [AT&T]


Many questions come to mind with the Galaxy Note. Is it too big? Is the stylus S-Pen necessary? Is the screen real estate worth the loss of portability and more. I've been using it for about a week and have some thoughts regarding these questions. With...

Bigger isn’t always better, and with smartphone continuing to increase their size I’m beginning to worry. The Note will automatically be passed up for another phone by many simply because of the size, but many will also love it for the same reason. One...

Great Seller and Phone !


This is one great phone


Consumer review by:



I like it a lot and the easel feature is quite handy. The Note is a very slippery phone so this case is a great improvement. "whole phone snaps in" means that this case does not replace the back of the phone like some do, so I can pop it out quickly...

Does not add much bulk ; whole phone snaps in and out easily ; comfy in hand

The easel feature is a matter of balance and you can't operate the phone without knocking it over ; Volume and on/off butons are much more recessed, so harder to operate

Consumer review by:



If you have a case on the note you might need to remove it first. This mount makes the phone easy and safe to use while drive. You can use voice commands.

Works well for GPS navigation


I bought this to use while using the Navigation application. It works well for that as well as general operation of the phone while in the car. When I asked via chat whether the product came with a charger, I was told it does not--but it does! I bought...

Nice product, feels very comfortable and extra pen for the not really careful people, like me. I almost lost the pen in the first week.
