There's nothing quite like the Galaxy Note. This Android smartphone is a pocket tablet with a 5.3" display running at an impressive 1280 x 800 resolution, just like 10" Android tablets. That means the Super AMOLED HD display is extremely sharp and it boasts the usual super-saturated colors and deep blacks. The phone has a Wacom dual digitizer and comes with a pen that tucks neatly into a silo. Throw in a sharp 8MP camera, a fast 1.5GHz dual core CPU and LTE 4G and you've got an amazing Android smartphone.
Yes, it's a really big phone. That doesn't make it a bad phone; it isn't for those who are looking for a voice-centric phone that's easily pocketable, and it's not for those with small hand. If you use your smartphone more as a pocket computer than cell phone, if big screen gaming, 5.3" videos on the go and web browsing are your thing, this is your phone. We've updated our huge Galaxy Note international review to cover the new AT&T model too.
