Samsung Galaxy Note review
Is it a very big phone or a very small tablet? Julian Prokaza takes a look at the unusual Galaxy Note in our review.
Calls made with the Galaxy Note are clear, but it feels a little odd to hold such a large device to the side of one's face.
At 408 online for a 16GB SIM-unlocked model, the Galaxy Note GT-N7000 is similarly priced to the entry-level 3G iPad 2. That tablet obviously won't fit into a trouser pocket and can't be used for voice calls, but it makes Samsung's oversized smartphone looks like poor value in comparison Apple's better-designed effort works far better as a tablet, too.
Samsung may think it bridges the gap between two different mobile devices, but the Galaxy Note GT-N7000 ends up being neither one thing nor the other as a result. The big screen certainly looks great, but the overall size makes it awkward to use and it’s just not as practical as either a more traditionally proportioned smartphone or tablet.
