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...

Samsung Galaxy Note (T-Mobile)

 

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.

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.

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.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note

 

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.

It’s too big to carry comfortably, and too bulky use with one hand. The stylus is nice, but the software to support it isn’t there yet. Also, it has a stylus. Android 2.3 with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin makes me yearn for ICS. Astounding amount of AT&T...

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 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?

AT&T Galaxy Note review

 

It was once said that if a phone or tablet used a stylus its hardware designers had blown it. It was also said that if the software on that device

Solid battery life ; Screen as beautiful as it is spacious ; LTE speeds

A bit too large for some ; Performance and battery life not as good as international release ; No Ice Cream Sandwich yet

AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy Note isn't the best in the world, but it's still very, very good.

Samsung Galaxy Note (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note is an unfortunate tweener, satisfying neither phone nor tablet buyers.

Gorgeous screen. Slim. Pressure sensitive stylus for drawing.

Phone software doesn't take advantage of large screen. Impossible to use one-handed.

Samsung Galaxy Note review: Samsung Galaxy Note

 

If you ask me, Samsung began marketing its Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T on the wrong foot. It was a smart move anticipating reactions to its oversize 5.3-inch screen when the unlocked version first launched in Europe, but the problem with claiming that...

The Samsung Galaxy Note's 5.3-inch HD screen is ideal for showcasing multimedia. It has 4G LTE, a great 8-megapixel camera, and a souped-up S Pen stylus that brings new ways to interact with your phone.

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 is a polarizing smartphone that winks at tablet territory. Those who like their screens XL will find a top-notch device that lets multimedia shine. The S Pen adds some artistic...
