The Samsung Galaxy Note Black on 3
Why we like it
- Intermediate size between a smartphone and a tablet
- Vibrant display
- Lightweight and skinny for its 5.3" screen
- Perfect for watching videos and taking notes using the S Pen
If tablets are too cumbersome, but you want a little more screen size than you'll get on your average smartphone, you should consider the 3 Samsung Galaxy Note. This touchscreen mobile has an almighty 5.3" display, and is perfect for watching videos whilst on the move.
Although the Galaxy Note has a very large screen, you can rest assured that it is lightweight, and remarkably thin at 9.7 mm. As its name suggests, the Galaxy Note is perfect for jotting down information, because Samsung provide you with an "S Pen" stylus to make note-taking easy. The stylus can be slotted away into the bottom of the phone, ready to whip out when you need to use it. Perfect for portability, and you'll never leave it behind!
Of course you can make calls and send texts on the Galaxy Note - it is like a smartphone in this regard. And Samsung haven't skimped on other smartphone features either! You'll be able to enjoy HD video recording and great photography using the 8 megapixel onboard camera. Web and apps are all within reach thanks to the Android 2.3 operating system. And with a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor powering it all, your browsing, games and apps will run remarkably quickly and responsively.
If all that weren't enough, you can also enjoy the HD Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy Note. This pixel-perfect screen makes watching videos and reading documents an absolute pleasure.
All in all, the Three Samsung Galaxy Note is the perfect media mobile for those who crave the versatility of a tablet, but dont want to carry both a phone and a tablet around with them.
