The Samsung Galaxy Note measures 147mm (5.78in) tall and 83mm (3.27in) across, which means that it feels absolutely massive when held in the hand. However, despite its large dimensions, the Note remains very thin at only 9.7mm (0.38in) thick. Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Note with impressive internal hardware: a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (with just under 13GB available to the user). It comes with Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread and Samsung's TouchWiz interface.

Samsung's new Galaxy Note is a unique device in the smartphone market. Straddling the line between a smartphone and a tablet, the Note features a massive 5.3-inch display, which is considerably larger than the screen on any other smartphone available today. Because of this, the Note is rather unwieldy in the hand, and nearly impossible to use one handed.

Overall, I loved the Note. It has really made me think twice of just how big a smartphone can be, if done right. The Galaxy Note is an impressive piece of technology, from its lightweight feel, to its gorgeous 5.3-inch screen. I didn't use the...

Do we like the Samsung Galaxy Note? Yes we do, and that hasn't changed from the international and AT&T versions that we reviewed several months ago. This Android smartphone with a huge high resolution display and digital pen is aging very well, and...

In comparison to the tiny phones of not that long ago this Android offering is huge. But as a friend of mine said it can do ‘everything I want’ so I do not need a PC and if you are a light PC user then why not as the screen is...

The Samsung Galaxy Note not only has a certain charm to it, but is very capable too. Charm because it is the sole member of a special 5”+ screen club, and offers a built-in stylus to doodle on it, certainly evoking nostalgia, even if it didn’t have...

The testing of a phone for a review is a new concept for me and we’re going to cover the topic in two different steps. In the next few lines I’ll show a few benchmarks comparing the Samsung Galaxy Note to my Galaxy Nexus (ICS 4.0.2) and...

The Samsung Galaxy Note, oh what a debate this 5.3-inch Android smablet (smartphone-tablet) has created. Some haters hate it, because, well, they love to hate things. And others love it, mainly because of its beautiful bright display. I’m going...

Samsung’s Galaxy Note is the biggest phone we’ve ever held to our ear, pushed in our pockets, and held on a bus. With a 5.3 inch touchscreen, it’s positively huge. Does bigger mean better? Samsung’s first huge screen phone, the...

At the beginning of this review, we mentioned that the Galaxy Note can't be classified as a smartphone or a tablet even though it incorporates elements of both. It doesn't even bring any unique features to the table since the whole stylus / mini...

When the iPhone was first released in 2008 it set a new benchmark for mobile phone screen size. Three models later Apple has not changed the screen size despite applications become screen hungry and video exploding to make up a large chunk of traffic...

Samsung has released their BIG new 5.3" Galaxy Note; a device that creates a whole new category for both smartphones and tablets. This 'phablet' is not a smartphone despite having phone capabilities, but it is a device that harks back to the...

Looking first at the build quality of the Samsung Galaxy Note we have a handset which feels solid in the hand due to its weight and size. The Gorilla Glass screen should protect the display from normal wear and tear with the back section fitting well...

We’ve got the Samsung Galaxy Note to review for you today. Samsung say that it’s the “Ultimate on-the-go device” and to say that it is powerful is probably the biggest understatement this year. The Galaxy Note sports a gigantic...

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a unique beast, as it has a massive, 5.3-inch screen built into a flat, lightweight body. A friend, on seeing the Note, was reminded of an old brick phone that had been flattened by a steamroller. This screen is just one of...

It’s hard to look at the Galaxy Note and not reflect on the function, form and history of mobile phones.If you were to show Samsung’s 9.7-millimetre-thick handset to someone in 1985, they’d marvel at how tiny it was compared to the...

Samsung's massive smartphone (or is it a tablet?)Pushing the boundaries of smartphones with its massive 5.3-inch display, the Samsung Galaxy Note (AT&T) promotes itself as a cross between a smartphone and a tablet -- a "phablet." While it comes with...

It wasn’t all that long ago that a 4.3-inch screen on smartphone was considered too large by many. Now, there are multiple 4-inch and larger phones on every carrier. Even Google’s flagship device exceeds the 4.3-inch mark — the Galaxy...

excellent) 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...
