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.

Now however, my phone also serves as my tablet without me needing to carry an additional device or have an additional data plan. That's huge for me, since I would carry my tablet in a bag and now I just don't carry the bag. I can also do a lot of real work that I normally do on my laptop.
I used to have my tablet at home for media consumption and communications, and carry my laptop with me from work to home for more serious work. Now I have given away the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet (btw was/is a great tablet), and I leave my laptop in the office most nights. The only thing I move around is my Galaxy Note. Big change.
The Swype keyboard works quite well for me, and I've written multiple paragraphs without discomfort, but I'm thinking of getting a bluetooth keyboard to put in my travel bag, in case I want to do a lot of writing on the plane.
Android 2.3.6 works well. I'm hoping ICS will be even better when it arrives, supposedly in a few months. A small thing is that when a text box appears and the cursor is blinking in it, why do I need to touch the text box to bring up the keyboard?
I transferred my AT&T Sim card from my iPhone to the Note, and then entered the APN information given in one of the other reviews to get the data working. It all worked well, EXCEPT that I didn't realize that the iPhone uses a micro SIM, but the Galaxy Note uses a standard size SIM, which cost me two days. Maybe ATT would have swapped SIM cards for me, but I didn't ask; I just ordered a micro Sim to standard Sim adapter for a couple dollars from Amazon and waited for it to arrive. The adapter works well, and now I can swap my Sim amongst devices, regardless of what size Sim they use, at least until the industry inevitably invents the next smaller size Sim card.
I bought an HDMI adapter for the Note, and it works well, although I was surprised to learn that it needs a separate usb power input in addition to connecting it between the Note and the TV. So now I can watch videos on the TV. The TED Air app let's me download the TED talks in HD to the Note. The Note's screen is plenty big enough to watch the videos comfortably on the Note, or the HDMI adapter lets me watch them on the bigger screen, where they look great. Non-HD web videos will not look as good of course.
The USB power adapter that came with the Note is European with a US adapter on top. So it's a little long. However, the Note's cable is standard USB on one end and standard Micro B USB on the other, so I've just been using my old iPhone USB power adapter. No doubt this is only an issue with the unlocked phone; I'm sure when the US carriers finally start selling the Note in the US, it will come with a standard US adapter. I was worried that there might be more issues with the fact that the phone was not made for the US market, but that's all I've noticed so far, except that when it starts up for the first time, the question of what language you want to use is asked in German. What's being asked is sort of obvious to anyone who's started up a phone before, but just in case they include in the package a little piece of paper to tell you which selection to make to switch everything to English. Just takes a second.
Of course there's a lot to say about how good the screen, the camera, etc. etc. are, but you can get that info from the specs and other reviews. This phone really is excellent in just about every respect. In this review, I've tried to focus on 1) "Is it too big, or is it exactly the optimal size to do the multi-function job I want while staying as fully portable as my old phone." [Answer: the latter.] And 2) "Is it going to be a problem buying an unlocked non-US phone?" [Answer: It's mostly fine, although a) you may need to exchange your micro Sim for a new standard Sim card form factor or buy an adapter in order to switch your Sim from your current phone (don't put a micro Sim in the Note's standard size Sim slot or it may go in deep enough to be difficult to get out), and b) you might find it a little weird entering the APN settings in order to get your data connection working--I had never done it before, but I just followed the steps outlined in the Amazon review by "san diego best weather" and it worked immediately.
I've only had the Note a week. So far, I'm very, very pleased.
It has a fantastic screen which, unlike the iP4, is actually big enough to take advantage of the high resolution; perfect for using Kindle-reader. It's very, very fast. It has excellent battery life; I made it through four days of light use on the first full charge, ending up at 16% at the end of the 4th day. It has really good GPS (due to being able to use Russian Glonass birds as well as US GPS ones) and gets position locks very quickly, even indoors. The camera is also quite good (for a phone) although I think the latest iP4S may have a slight edge there.
I have not used the stylus much. It works as advertised, but I don't find it to be a terribly compelling a feature.
I'm happy that I got the "Rest of World" version which has the physical home key, which is a far better design than the the four capacitive buttons the Note will will most likely have when it comes to the US officially. It works great on AT&T; I simply popped the SIM from my Infuse in and set up the APN correctly, which is trivial.
As a former Dell Streak owner who settled for a smaller phone (Samsung Infuse) for a while, I absolutely love this device.
1st off I disagree with some of the other reviews that the battery life is simular to other Android phones. It's not. The battery life on the Note is 3 times better ! This is the 1st device that I have been able to leave the " Internet Hotspot " feature on all day and at the same time talking, pushing email, and sending receiving texts for 12 hours straight with 40% battery to spare. I cannot seem to run out the battery on this Note in a day no matter how much I use it !!
As I former iPhone 4s user I was a little worried about outdoor display readability. The iPhone 4s was great for outdoors so I was not willing to compromise up grading to the Note. No disappointment here. The funny thing about the Note's display is it seems to actually get brighter the longer it is exposed to direct sunlight. If you work out doors as I do this Note is perfect.
Radio reception/ call quality-
Excellent on both.
Smooth as silk. It's like writing with the perfect pen that you just cannot ever seem to find at the office supply store regardless how much $ you spend. ONE GRIPE THOUGH, IT IS WAY TO EASY TO ACCIDENTLY TOUCH THE NEXT PAGE/ SAVE BUTTON WHILE HANDWRITING A NOTE. SAMSUNG, THIS NEEDS TO BE DEACTIVATED WHILE WRITING!!!!!
No hic ups, no lag, just smooth and fast app switching and loading.
This is the one area where it does not keep up with the iPhone 4s. The speaker is plenty adequate, but not as loud as it should be for a phone of this power and size.
Solid as a rock.
This is what had me on the fence for a little while. Takes a couple days to get used to it. Once you have you will not be happy with the smaller display device any longer. Now that I have been using the Note for a month I decided to pick up a iPhone and a Galaxy Nexus just to see what I used to be used to. No dice, I'm telling you once you get used to the display, larger keyboard layout, and performance of the Note there is no going back!!
Samsung Hit the ball out of the park with this one.
Just wanted to share some APN setting in case current Note owners are having issues with MMS on AT&T-
Proxy- (not set)
Port- (not set)
MMS proxy- [...]
MMS port- 80
Authentication type- None
APN type- internet + mms
Go get yourself a Note. you won't reget it.
