If you have been wanting to join the tablet PC craze and happen to need a new smart phone, Samsung’s Galaxy Note might be the one. Though the size of it may turn you off initially because it does not have the typical smart phone size that comes with iPhone, the tablet-like functionalities of this phone could override the size anytime.
Take a look at the neat features below:
- Screen is 5.3 inches in size
- Gorilla glass for its protection
- 1.5Ghz dual-core processor
- Touch sensitive and comes with a stylus pen as well
- Wifi, Bluetooth, USB, earphone jack
- Android OS v.3.5 Gingerbread
- HTML, Adobe Flash
- Micro SD card up to 2 GB of memory
- 8MP camera, autofocus
- Accelerometer, compass, GPS-support, gyro sensor meter
- 16GB/32GB storage
- 800×1280 pixel display
- FM radio, video, music playback
- Great battery life
What’s great about this device is that the stylus makes it easier to maneuver your way around it such as if you need to use Google Map. For instance, if you need to inform a friend on how to go to your place, you can easily mark down the location and circle your house using the pen and email it to your friend. Of course this can be done on the other tablets but you have to manually type the words in, so it’s not as convenient as the Galaxy Note provides.
If you are an artist, you will especially find the phone handy because you can draw or sketch using the stylus and the S-memo for it. Scribbling note the minutes of the meeting or class notes is made easier too due to its big screen size and stylus pen.
There are probably just 2 cons about the Galaxy Note – the size of it, which makes look odd for you to be sticking your ears to it while talking, and the apps, which is the number one reason for rejection for most iDevices’ users, though the Android market is slowly catching up (currently Apple at 500k versus Android’s 400k). But hey, it doesn’t mean that your most commonly apps won’t be in the Android market.
Galaxy Note offers the best of world to you and you don’t have to be tied to just one brand just because everyone else seems to be using it.
