Samsung Galaxy Note hands-on: First look

27 September 2011
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a player in a game of numbers - and it's drawing higher numbers than the competition. Starting with the 5.3" 1280x800 pixels SuperAMOLED screen on the outside and all the way in to the beefed up...

So my thoughts with comparision of Galaxy S II:
+ no protruding elements at the back side (camera and the bottom of the phone);
+ some features that most phones still don't have: barometer, LTE, GLONASS (add it to the phone specs!);
+ a pressure sensitive pen;
+ max. size that I can have in my pocket;
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread, I think it should contain Honeycomb or the tablet version of Ice Cream Sandwich;
- PenTile - but at that DPI it's not so disturbing.

at least this one looks optimised like the gs2. no lag, choppiness or stuttering. i really cannot wait for this to be released - just hope it has the same great performance all round as the gs2. fingers crosses. oh and can you check which sound chip is in this phone ? yamaha or wolfson ?

I wish you guys could test and post a video of typing on it with one single hand. This is my major concern. It is a great phone! iPhone's screen has become too small for browsing or showing pics to friends.

..but basically one of the drive-crazy-for factor is note taking feature. I am just wishing someone is already porting MS One Note to Android.

I am excited like hell to get this phone. With SGS2, my need to use laptop reduced by 30%. With Note, I think it will reduce by 50%.

Looks interesting, but i wouldn't buy one.I mean,come on, it's huuuuuuuuuuuge. Where do you keep it because i don't think our pockets are big enough.
