Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000

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!
Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000Okay, 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

Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000Yes, 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?

For the screen size, it’s still pretty slim.

It’s basically a stylus.

For me, it’s really a fun app more than anything. I guess people in the creative field will have a more productive time with it, haha!

Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000It can actually take decent photos. If all factors are optimized, great photos.

Other features:

  • 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.

The Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 retails for P34,995.
