T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note ReviewSamsung GALAXY Note T-Mobile 7.5
Months after AT&T customers managed to relish on the obnoxiously ginormous Samsung Galaxy Note, it’s finally T-Mobile’s turn to get a crack at it. Expected to arrive on the carrier’s lineup starting on August 8th for the 2-year contract price of $249.99, it’ll be on par to AT&T’s version with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Premium Suite all on board out of the box. However, considering that there have been other recent attractive options on the market, will it still be able to entice conscious buyers?
Aside from the T-Mobile branding below the earpiece, this version is identical to AT&T’s version – meaning, its choice of materials, build quality, and size are unchanged. Even now, it’s still one unwieldy thing to handle with one hand, and instead, it’s best to be used with two. No doubt, it’s memorable for its sheer size, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before.

If there’s a single feature that stands out most with the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note, it’s undeniably none other than its gigantic 5.3” WXGA 800 x 1280 Super AMOLED display. Yeah, it’s ridiculously big, but it’s aided by its high resolution and iridescent color production – both of which aid to its polarizing attraction.
