Samsung Galaxy Note

samsung-galaxy-note-white

Review

The Samsung is one of the biggest GSM enabled devices available, and it is thought to be a tablet-smartphone hybrid.

Hardware

With a 5.3 inch screen, this device has a lot at its disposal, with a super AMOLED display; the huge phone has a very bright image. The resolution isn’t as high as other devices, so the pictures aren’t as smooth as the iPhone 4S but the screen has a lot of boasting potential.

The size of the handset is no doubtingly going to out dwarf all other smartphones, but it’s still a lot smaller than most tablets, although those with smaller hands may have difficulty holding it like a usual phone.

On the outside the Note looks a lot like an enlarged Galaxy S2, the design of it is very simple and it follows the shape is very similar too.

On the inside the Galaxy Note is powered by a 1.4GHz dual core processor, and 1GB RAM. The large phone comes with a choice between a 16GB and a 32GB storage model, as well as both models having a micro SD card slot to store up to another 32GB.

The primary camera is the same camera used in the Galaxy S2, and it produces great results. Pictures come out well and with the powerful processor you’ll have your camera app up in no time. It can be a little tricky to position the Galaxy Note comfortably because of the size of the device, and there isn’t a shutter button to capture photos with, so you’ll have to use the on-screen one.

The Galaxy Note’s main camera is 8 Megapixels and it also sports a 2 Megapixel camera on the front which is useful for video calling.

Software

Samsung’s Galaxy Note runs on the Gingerbread operating system, and has a very similar TouchWiz overlay to the Galaxy S2, although this version has taken advantage of the extra screen size to fit in more on each home screen. The Galaxy Note has been planned to have an upgrade to 4.0, but it’s unsure when.

The Galaxy Note has also been included with a stylus dubbed as the ‘S Pen.’ The S Pen works reasonably well and it’s one of the few touch screen devices out there that offer the technology today. Although useful at times, you may find yourself rarely using it as the whole Android operating system has been created to make browsing with your finger an easy task. The S Pen stylus alienates that touch screen feeling a little, although it could come in handy on a few drawing apps or if you need to jot down a quick note.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is availiable on 192 contracts.
