"Best... Phone... Eva..."

I’ve been using the international version of the Galaxy Note since December. While it’s easily my favorite phone of all time, the Galaxy Note does have some pros and cons.

>> Pros of the Samsung Galaxy Note <<

Its large screen makes it a virtual tablet replacement. It’s great for web browsing on the go. The Galaxy Note also makes for a great e-book reader.

The display is beautiful and bright. I enjoy watching movies on this device as well as Youtube videos.

The extra screen real estate makes typing on the device a breeze. I can type in either portrait or landscape.

The phone performs extremely well. This phone is not only fast but its big battery lasts all day into the next day.

It includes an S-pen which can be used for hand written notes and for drawing.

I find the camera works pretty well. I am pretty impressed with its photo and video recording capabilities.

Unlike the iPad, any Android Tablet, Kindle Fire, or any other tech gadget you have, the Galaxy Note goes everywhere you go. Since it’s your phone, you are more likely not to leave it at home.

>> Cons of the Samsung Galaxy Note <<

Some will find that the Galaxy Note is not pocket-able. I purchased a case from eBay but I don’t use it since it takes too much effort to pull the device out of it.

Using the device with one hand will be tough for many. I can do it easily so it’s definitely possible.

It doesn’t have a notification LED. After owning Blackberries for years, this is one (missing) feature that I always look for.

Like all Android devices, you won’t get an iTunes-like experience when you connect your Galaxy Note to your desktop.

While you might not mind having a big phone, you may receive unfriendly comments from friends, family, coworkers, clients, or passers-by. Just this past weekend I heard someone saying from a distance, “Look at his phone. It’s ginormous * laughing *“. This can be a big problem if you need to be image conscious.

>> Conclusion <<

While I love, love, love this phone, it's not for everybody. I encourage everyone to at least test drive this device. If you do, I'm sure you will get hooked too!

Samsung Galaxy Note Written...
We've seen smartphone display sizes creep up over the years, but with the introduction of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note , it's official: the era of tabletphones is upon us.  On paper, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a powerful companion, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a jaw-dropping 1280x800 pixels, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, giant 2,500 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.6... more...
