The Samsung Galaxy Note is now a very popular device thanks to its versatility and a number of impressive features. In this article, I am going to take a closer look at some of the unique features of this device so you can decide if it is the right smartphone for you.
One of the first things that you will notice about the Samsung Galaxy Note is the large size of its screen. At 5.3 inches, it is the largest smartphone touchscreen available. Despite being so large, it also offers outstanding display quality thanks to a pixel resolution of 800x 1280. Its display quality is enhanced further thanks to its super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology which is similar to that found the Samsung's popular Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3 models. One of the most unique features the Galaxy Note is the fact that it comes with a stylus pen called an S-Pen which is optimised for this device, which stores in a hole at the top of the device when not in use, and massively increases the potential versatility of the handset.
Storage is an important aspect of smartphones, especially as they are now used for an increasingly varied array of different tasks. The handset is offered in both 16GB and 32GB options, both of which come with an integrated microSD card slot which can be used to accommodate a memory card of up to 32 GB, so storage is unlikely to be a problem.
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Note is well equipped as a web browsing device, as many smartphones now are. It utilises both 3G coverage and Wi-Fi networks to provide users with the best possible connection based on their location's network coverage and signal strength. The default web browsing app is provided courtesy of the TouchWiz UI which runs over the top of the Android Gingerbread OS (an update to the new Ice Cream Sandwich version is available), with other alternative web browsers available for download from the Google Play Store.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is well equipped as a camera phone. It has an 8 megapixel camera with all the usual image enhancing features, and the ability to capture video footage in 1080p which is full HD.
As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy Note packs a versatile spec list, and makes a great choice for anyone looking for a smartphone with a larger screen, or a great alternative to the mainstream smartphone models which are currently dominating the market.
