The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the most unique smartphones on the market, and although it boasts a comprehensive spec list it is well known particularly because of its screen. This is the largest smartphone touchscreen on the market, but in this article I will look at some of its other features to show that this handset boasts much more than just an impressive touchscreen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note comes with a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor. At the time of its release, this was a very impressive feature, and although on paper it is not as powerful as many of its quad-core powered counterparts, the still provides excellent performance across a number of the handset's features. Benefits of this processor include a responsive touchscreen, efficient multitasking and fast downloads of website content, apps and email attachments.
As a camera phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note is well equipped to capture high quality still images and video footage alike. Thanks to its high pixel resolution, still images are of excellent levels of detail and clarity along with great colour rendering. Using the camera and getting the best results is very easy thanks to all the usual image enhancing features that you expect to find on any high end cameraphone. These include Autofocus, touch focus, face detection, image stabilisation and an LED flash. A number of these can be set to automatic, taking the guesswork out of getting the best results.
The Samsung Galaxy Note has a popular Android operating system as its platform of choice. It comes preinstalled than the previous Gingerbread version, although there is an upgrade to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich version available, bringing the Galaxy Note bang up to date there the likes of its Galaxy S3 counterpart. In addition to the Android OS, the Samsung TouchWiz UI is also included which offers an alternative aesthetic to the stock Android interface along with numerous additional customisation options. Of course, being an Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note offers access to the Google Play Store which allows users to browse hundreds of thousands of different apps from a number of categories, which can be downloaded straight onto the handset.
Of course, there is much more to the Samsung Galaxy Note than what I have outlined in this article. If you are looking for a new smartphone and versatility is the order of the day, the Galaxy Note would certainly be my top recommendation.
