Samsung Galaxy Note overview

Updated 25 Oct 2011

The Galaxy Note is like no other smartphone on the market. To be even more precise, it's not even 100% smartphone. It's more like a hybrid between a phone and a tablet, offering you a completely new experience. Whether it's a huge smartphone or a tiny tablet, we know for sure that it has a 5.3 inch display, which is the largest screen size with smartphone portability, enabling you to see more and do more. The 5.3'' 1280 x 800p HD Super AMOLED display brings you an immersive viewing experience while also allowing you to view more in one glance with minimum scrolling and screen transitions.

The S Pen alongside the full touchscreen creates the best-in-class mobile input experience. Samsung claims that it is undoubtedly the most advanced pen input technology featuring a multitude of functions including preciseness, pressure sensitivity, speed and more. The S Pen means that you can easily sketch drawings or write notes with a high level of accuracy and ease. The main camera is an 8 megapixel LED Flash one while in the front there's a 2MP snapper, perfect for video-chatting. The vivid and large display makes it a pleasure to review photos and show them to your friends. You can also store as many photos, videos, movies as you might want because there are 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded to 32GB through a microSD card. The massive 2500mAh battery prolongs the activity of the Galaxy Note, letting you enjoy all the great features it offers.

The device runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and is capable of achieving lightning fast network speed (HSPA+ up to 21Mbps or 4G LTE). Connectivity wise, the Galaxy Note comes with the latest Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 as well as Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Wi-Fi Direct. Due to its unrivaled web & applications, the Galaxy Note is a great phone for business users. They can stay connected for important meetings on the go, thanks to Cisco WebEx which brings web conferencing, instant messaging, telephony as well as fixed mobile communication capabilities to a mobile workforce. Users will find it easy to view shared desktops, browsers, applications and documents. All this can be done with confidence, thanks to Samsung Security solutions that cover all data such as contact names and numbers while also protecting all email attachments.
