Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 16GB Android Smartphone

Galaxy Note is A new type of smartphone, borne of insight and innovation. It is the ultimate on-the-go device which consolidates core benefits of diverse mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability. It empowers you with everything you can ever desire so that you can simply, feel free. It is truly smart. Consumer research indicates that people always want to do more tasks much better, even on the go, whether it is web browsing, email, games, or viewing photos and videos. To do all this, consumers carry multiple devices, because each device has unique benefits that work best in a particular situation. Therefore, consumers constantly switch devices to use the right device at the right time. Even for consumers with multiple smart devices, they still carry around a notepad for writing down ideas. There is an emerging desire for a primary device for on-the-go use that could consolidate the core tasks of multiple devices as well as recreate the ease and simplicity of using a pen and paper. The GALAXY Note was created to reflect your desires. The Galaxy Note is a primary device that will minimize the need to switch to other devices while on the go and open up the potential of your mobile experience.

What people say who have bought this gadget

by; Charles Scidmore

Like the excellent, well-written review by Juwan I. Hayward, I also ordered this from Clove Technology in the UK because I didn't want to wait for it. I had not anticipated that I would be able to get it so soon from a vendor via Amazon (with the exchange rate, it cost me a little more than $100 more than it can be purchased here). Of all of the many gadgets and phones I have owned in the past 30 years, this is by far the best and most superior gadget I have had the privilege of owning and using. It really is a perfect mini-computer. I could conceivably eliminate most of my other gadgets and just use this device. It is small enough to put in most pockets (especially jacket or pants).

I go nowhere without it. It is superfast, with a beautiful screen. I use it for playing music, playing games, reading Kindle and ePub books, reading and editing documents, taking notes, surfing the web (in addition to the excellent Android Browser, I love the Dolphin Browser and even occasionally use Firefox for Android), reading news feeds from Pulse and News360, checking Facebook and Google+, taking candid pictures (it also has a good-quality front-facing camera for video chats, which I have yet to use), and all of the many other things one does on today's smartphones and tablets. I have heavily invested in the Android ecosystem, and it really has no noticeable weaknesses compared to iOS (iPhone/iPad/iTouch). This one device combines all the best attributes of a smartphone with those of a tablet, and it is more portable that the normal tablet of today. I own a top-end tablet, and I find myself using it rarely since getting the Samsung Galaxy Note three weeks ago.

Lastly, it has a pen. I love the pen. This device is remarkable and outstanding without it, but the pen really does take it to another level for me. I use it for drawing, doodling, taking notes, having my notes transcribed (the transcription software delivered with it is quite good), and use to more efficiently play games and such. It is really the icing on the cake.

I highly recommend the Samsung Galaxy NOTE. It could conceivably be my go-to device for several years to come.

I just want to add my two cents worth to the other reviewer's comments - and I understand many of you won't pay attention since I did not buy this from Amazon. One word sums up the Galaxy Note: Fabulous! Beautiful and very bright display and I love the pen input. Many things, including calendars, can be written on with the pen - it is very flexible in this regard. One point not mentioned above - it is enabled for GLONASS (Russian) GPS. I've taken it on two walks on the GPS accuracy and speed are great. It picks up location much faster than my other phones which I assume is due to the GLONASS GPS receiver. I do want to mention a couple of ankle-biters though: I've downloaded all of my Amazon games and I have to say Plants-vs-Zombies ran kinda slow. I tried rebooting it and playing it again - same story. So - I checked today and sure enough there was a 14+ mb update from Samsung which took the version to 2.3.6 (version when new was 2.3.5). Both games I checked ran just fine after the update. Second - it does go through battery fairly quickly when connected to wi-fi - but this is typical of Android phones. If you're short on data (I only get 200-mb per month on mine) then this could be an issue if you intend to use wi-fi a lot. Last but not least - I could not find any reasonably priced carrying cases for it. One was listed for sale here but was pretty pricey and would not ship until mid-December. So - I went to the local media store and found a Garmin pouch - intended to be used with 5-inch Garmin GPS's (ASIN: B00422KZQG). The fit is a little tight but it's perfect for $15 here on Amazon until a real case comes out. Anyways - the Galaxy Note really is the best thing since sliced bread - small enough to be with you all the time - yet large enough to serve as a fantastic tablet.

I've had the Galaxy Note a few more days now and I wanted to update my comments. The update to 2.3.6 appears to have addressed the possible wi-fi battery usage issue I mentioned above. After a full charge, I have used the phone two days and two hours and the battery level was at 78% this morning. The past two days were light usage - but I did check e-mail using 3G both days and made a short call each day. So - if there was a wi-fi battery usage problem it has been resolved. And, I continue to be impressed by the beauty, color and high resolution of the display. This is a beautiful and highly functional phone/tablet that I highly recommend!
The Galaxy Note continues to astound me! Just like another reviewer commented - this really is the best phone/tablet yet! Integration with Exchange e-mail (IMAP) is flawless. And, better yet, the e-mail client does the best job I have seen in handling e-mail with embedded photos. Screen caps are equally easy using the included pen - although the little button you have to hold down for screen caps is tricky to manipulate. And, this is the best device I have for battery life. With occasional use throughout each day - I have gotten as many as eight days of battery life!! I still think there is only one (minor) downside to the Note - the lack of a quality protective case.

I'm still thrilled with my Note and I cannot find anything to criticize. I continue to especially impressed with how it handle's email. I received a Gmail message with seven large photo attachments - the Note received it in a couple of seconds - and showed thumbnails within maybe five seconds. I use Apple Mail on my MacBook Air - and even after 24+ hours the little pinwheel is still spinning trying to pull in all of the attachments!! Despite all of it's good points, and based on a comment I just received, I would have to say that the Note (and any other device with less than a 7-inch display) is not the best device for hours and hours of web-surfing. A 5.3-inch display is just too small for that IMHO.
