Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 review: Power play

Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 review: Power play  - read the full textTablets are cool. But they have a purpose too. Larger screens, higher resolution and more mileage out of the battery make them better suited for certain tasks. That’s why people are not only fascinated by them but do end up actually...

I know PhoneArea love to boast about how good iPhone 4S FullHD video quality is in every review. Unfortunately, you guy never point out the fact that Apple sacrifice video compression in order to give us very high resolution video but also very BIG file!!!! 10min FullHD video cost 1GB++ of memory....Those poor iPhone 4S owner can only shoot 14?? videos.....Bye bye to your holiday shoot.

Only con for me is that cpu isn't the exynos(4212) that is manufactured in 32nm node, but again it is still exynos(4120).

Something missing from this review: "What's In The Retail Box?" (besides _not_ the MHL dongles). Does it come with case? The preview at showed a slick folio case for the G-Note.

Would've liked to have seen some side-by-side comparison photos alongside a Dell steak/htc titan/sensation xl.

Its the first HD super amoled and all they can say is "our dissapointment was to see it uses pentile"

fortunately this phone isn't for everyone, you don't like it, well, move on and buy your dream phone. I'm getting this one soon, I love special gadgets.

> In reply to Nokia Fanboy PRO @ 2011-11-16 21:55 from kJX3 - click to readThis device is good for people who like big screens, for commercial and work stuff and don't want a tablet, Im not a fan of Samsung but kudos for them for making a lot of phone variety so people can choose for their needs and likes,if you don't like keep it for you, there are a lot of ppl who will like it... And btw about the overhyping i did not see any overhype on this device, If you really really need over hyping go check iphone 4 and the new 4S thats what i call over hyping.

"The right kind of users will be easily convinced of the advantages"

yes indeed. In fact, for the buniness, this would be a perfect phoneblet. There are the people who need this then why not?, especially the spec is pretty awesome and the real usage is good as well according to the review.

Certainly Samsung will gain some market share of this.

> In reply to johnny devil @ 2011-11-16 21:45 from nG4Y - click to readI'm not impressed and it seems that even GSMArena isn't impressed as well. It's over hyped. I'm sorry but that's how I see it and I share GSMArena's view on this device. Just because people like me isn't buying into the G Note's hype makes me a troll? Oh, please. This is an open forum and everyone can share their views. What do you expect? Make this forums bias and pro-Samsung? lol

> In reply to aodxxl @ 2011-11-16 20:44 from 0Uv3 - click to readGSMArena is right about this "phoneblet". It's a niche device and that's it. There's nothing to be wowed on this device. It's basically just like the rest of Samsung's dozens with a bigger screen. It doesn't really bring anything impressive. Samsung fans are over hyping this device and I applaud GSMArena for seeing through the hype.

I say GSMArena did a great job with this review. They called it fair and square.

Very badly reviewed. You guys at GSM arena don't know how to write and what should be written, all the goods are just like that mentioned and those which aren't noticable are made look like a disappoint.

This is a fantastic phone, wins in every department. I am very fond of mobiles, changes once in 9 months or less, using them as much as I can, I was a big fan of HTC, until I buy "NOTE".

One simple word about this is Marvellous, fantastic,exceptional, beautiful....Oh wait, didn't I mentioned one word?....:) Ouch I am carried away by its performance.
