Overall, I loved the Note. It has really made me think twice of just how big a smartphone can be, if done right. The Galaxy Note is an impressive piece of technology, from its lightweight feel, to its gorgeous 5.3-inch screen. I didn't use the stylus that much, as that's not really my thing, but as a smartphone, the Note excels.
My mother-in-law has a hand-me-down iPhone 3G that I gave her years ago and when she saw my Note, it really impressed her. The screen size at 5.3 inches is perfect for older people, as it makes the text, icons and use of the device that much better. Coming from the 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone, the Note makes the perfect phone for not just technology fans, but older people. The Note can reach a huge market and this is largely thanks to its large screen.
After two weeks of using the Galaxy Note, I came to love the screen size all that much more. During the use of the Note, I went back to just hold my Galaxy S II to remember its size and it simply felt like a toy because of its [now] small size.
The Note has an audience that will be very particular; they'll have to find the screen size personally enjoyable and manageable. It's not the type of phone you grab instantly and fall in love, because it does come across as a giant. However, after taking it around with me as my everyday phone for the review, I noticed so many people out and about with the same device.
I was surprised, I saw mums, dads, grandmas, young teens, all sporting the Galaxy Note. It's a surprise, but refreshing to see that the size doesn't put people off and it really shouldn't. The Note isn't the phone for everybody, as its size will definitely put some people off instantly. If you're after a new phone and you want something with a bigger screen, the Note should be on your list of phones to check out.
Why have a smartphone and tablet, when you can have the Galaxy Note? It's not perfect for everyone, but well worth checking out.
