A review unit of the much coveted Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 spent the holidays with me last December 2011. It was really the perfect time because a lot of people in my immediate vicinity were interested in the unit. In fact, my sister-in-law actually ended up buying one after playing around a bit with it!
Okay, so size-wise here’s how the Samsung Galaxy Note’s 5.3″ screen compares to my Samsung Galaxy S2’s 4.3″ screen. It looks kind of like a big brother. XD
Yes, you can hold it in one hand, albeit it’s noticeably wider than a regular phone. You can pretty much forget about one-handed navigation (like texting while driving, which you really shouldn’t be doing in the first place!!!) so I guess for the general public welfare it’s for the better. Safer streets right?
The S Memo is a very versatile app. You can choose your “paper” or background, your pen (you can use a brush, pencil, highlighter, or technical pen)… even the ink color and point thickness. You can insert photos from your cam, your phone’s memory, or the web.
You can even have one entire screen dedicated to your calendar. This pretty much eliminates the need for a notebook type planner.
Due to its large screen size, reading newspapers and magazines from online / digital sources is made very convenient.
- 16GB internal memory
- 1.4GHz dual core processor
- 1080p full HD video recording and playback
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
- HD Super Amoled screen (bright even at the dimmest setting!)
My hubby commented that if you’re a guy who keeps his cellphone inside his pocket it could be tough lugging this around. It’s admittedly more convenient for us ladies with handbags. The Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 is what happens when your cellphone and tablet PC get married and have a kid. It can do everything both gadgets can do and even a bit more.
