The Samsung Galaxy Note is a weird device - it has a huge 5.3-inch display which some might think is too big. For others Goliath-handed fellows it’s just perfect…

The Note screen still looks gorgeous. Great phone so far.

“But as soon as they start using it, they think that’s what they need.” Haha so true.

I don't like microSD inside and battery blocked it slot, this giant size Samsung should make an external memory slot. Motorola Razr Maxx is nice both Sim card and microSD external slot is next to each other in 1 spot with close cover.

exynos only in non att version correct? att has the crap dragon for lte i feel.
20. remixfa (Posts: 13882; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
correct. if you see LTE, it does not have an exynos 4210 chip in it. You have to get the international one to have Exynos right now. hopefully that changes soon.
I still have my fingers crossed that I win the phone arena contest. please please oooooooh please! :)

That sounds like it's a indication that it's coming to all major carriers here in the U.S. :)

Could be april after AT&T exclusive US carrier is over

It seems like an excellent phone so far. I like the extra functionality the S pen provides. And although 5.3 inches somewhat stretches its practicality as a phone, I would use it with a bluetooth anyway.

I finally got a chance to play with the "phoneblet" yesterday, and it left quite an impression. I'm by no means a big guy (5'11", 140lbs, medium-sized hands, and I wear slim fit jeans), but the phone really wasn't uncomfortable to hold or use. And the screen! A more beautiful display, in a phone I have never beheld.
But sadly, as much as I liked how it felt and looked, the Snapdragon obviously crippled it quite badly, to the extent that it had trouble merely panning through homescreens.

I kind of dig it.. but I feel that is destined for certain type of people.. example.. I don't see many ladies with one... it will fit in their Coach purse but not when they be talking... carrying it is how I see the problem...
17. JGuinan007 (Posts: 563; Member since: 19 May 2011)
I fully agree but not just ladies with tiny hands anyone with tiny hands will have a hard time using this phone. But for people with normal hands or larger will have no problems and get a beautiful display and S-pen!

so.. the ladies you know are not used to holding 5 inches in their hands? sounds like an issue. lol

I just measured my 0.7x4.3x7.4(8.5"diag) 8.2oz retired DayTimer wallet. Though we won't see phones like The Brick, DayTimers had a long history and wide acceptance. I believe the size was set to fit a majority of a) adult male hands, and b) adult male coat pockets.
We may be seeing a market fracture here, a further acknowledgment that one size does NOT fit all. The pre-cellular traditional 4x7 size may still be optimum for adult males, who may now be chafing at the small size of keys, relative to their fingers. The larger size may also help with the tech-aware-and-presbyopic demographic ... if some vendor finds it large enough to merit pursuit. (No, as a 40+,6'+ male technologist, I'm not quite unbiased, just hopeful.) Still, unlike DayTimer demand, smartphone demand extends _far_ beyond the demographic with large coat pockets.
Notably, some attributed cellular downsizing to pursuit of female consumers.(...and children, in addition to semiconductor trends) It's not clear whether a new up-sizing will fracture the market along gender/stature lines. But the market is already fractured on other lines; selling to Small-Medium-Large consumers seems no tougher.
I'm just trying to figure how to get a "phoneblet" without losing the farm to my current carrier.

I apparently am one of the few women on the plantet to have bought this phone and even had my picture taken by a Galaxy Note owner from Columbia at a conference who wanted to prove women do buy this device. I plan to return it on account of the battery life and the size is a problem. I had to carry it on a run b/c it didn't fit in my pocket at all.
