Samsung GALAXY Note Preview

0. phoneArena 19 Oct 2011, 05:59 posted on

Well, it's finally here – the Samsung GALAXY Note – the largest “smartphone” ever created. If you wonder why we placed “smartphone” in inverted commas, that's because this thing is so big that it's blurring the lines between being a phone and a tablet...

Don't forget small women would find this a nice sized tablet rather than a big phone. Women are always writing something down in their tiny diaries. Also easy to put into a purse. However I'm not a woman.

I do like this as a travel tablet. Something I don't need to take out and put in the xray machine at the airport. It became a pain to bring my tablet and my laptop with me on trips and I can't ditch the laptop.

Most people buying this if they are not oversized themselves would infrequently use a cellphone. They are looking for a portable data device with the ability to make calls infrequently. It is far more pocketable than a 7" tablet. Its a small tablet with the ability to make the odd call if necessary. Perfect for me.

Comparison to a dell streak 5 would be more appropriate.

You guys have to understand that most of these iPhoner's (like Mr. Ray here) like to follow trends and right now the trend for the hipster crowd is women tight skinny jeans paired with 2 sizes to small t's with a long sleeve shirt underneath. Granted for someone who most likely has to lie flat on their bed, suck it in and pull up their zipper with a pair of pliers this may not be pocketable. For your average guy who wears comfortable fitting jeans this thing is definitely pocket ready. Owning an Epic 4G Touch I can assure you that this phone would not give the average guy any problems at all.

Effective Resolution? You are most definitely a iCrAppleholic saying lame s**t like this. Effective resolution on this device is it's horizontal pixel Lines x Vertical pixel lines. It is all in line with it's VESA Certified 1280 x 800 lines of Resolution. That is a progressive scan screen too, btw. So lame was this review that I was laughing my head off 30 seconds into it in complete dismay, at your ignorance and lack of technical knowledge. Go out and get real job..... fool. Bet you can't get one! ;-p

If Phone Arena calls your lame dumb ignorant self a professional reviewer, they need to have their heads examined!

Wow..samsung galaxy…. It’s perfectly amazing. I want to have this kind of smartphone someday.But hopefully help me from getting payday loans to pay for unexpected cell phone bills. Millions have had “bill shock” then they discover their cell phone bill is way more than they anticipated it to be. Federal regulators declared last year that they wanted it to not occur to consumers. However, cellular providers and the Federal Communications Commission have attained an agreement that may curb bill shock by supplying people more warning beforehand. The phone is good. .but how about its cost?
