Is the Samsung Galaxy Note really something different? This question is answered by a thorough testing in this Samsung Galaxy Note review of yours.



The description of Samsung Galaxy Note review includes 1.4GHz dual-core processor; in addition an Android 2.3 operating system and 1GB RAM, for 16GB ROM memory. More over, it comes with an expandable storage; 146.85 mm length; 82.95 mm width as well as 9.65 mm thickness. Equipped with a display of 5.3 inches as well as 1280 x 800 pixels display resolution. It weighs 178g at a price of  $594.


The good points:

  • As compared to its competitors it is really light in weight, weighing only 178g.
  • With a thickness of 9.65 mm, it has come to be the slimmest tablet.

Basically, the points that need improvement are as follows:

  • It feels less like a tablet and more like a phone, as compared to its competitors it doesn’t have the approach a tablet must have.
  • With 5.3 inch display, it feels like an advanced version of Galaxy S II as if the company is trying to give the message that the Note can also be used as a phone.
  • It doesn’t feel comfortable because of its massive size.




The good points:

  • It has an amazing display, with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, Super AMOLED together with a 5.3-inch display, which leads to a pixel density of 285 ppm.
  • It is great for all kinds of app and usage.
  • Better than most of the smartphone screens.




The 8MP camera gives spectacular photographs and videos. As a matter of fact, Samsung cameras are becoming outstanding these days.


The processing is exceptional with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Excluding the occasional lags, the processing is very smooth.


With a 2500mAh battery, Samsung Galaxy Note is superior to our expectations.
