Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 Review
The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 has created a huge buzz when it first entered the market. It is a new hybrid: a powerful combination of a smartphone and a tablet mostly in terms of size but also in functional matters.
Having a 5.3-inch screen which provides a superb visual experience and a weight of 178g, it is highly portable. However, due to the same measurements, the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 is not pocket-friendly. Physically, it follows its predecessor, the Galaxy S2, and it was a right decision. The aesthetics scream of minimalism and amazing display. The locations of the brand logo, the 2MP front-facing camera which works best for video calling, the two touch-friendly buttons, and the single Home key are all well thought of.
However, as it simply houses the same look and feel of the Galaxy S2, the protruding glass covering of 8MP camera lens comes with the old problem of being a scratch magnet. The main strength of the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 lies on its superb AMOLED screen. Boasting of a 285 ppi, it scoffs at other retina displays of both its brand and competitors in the market. To top it off, the Corning Gorilla Glass provides a solid screen protection. You will surely have the best visual and touch experience with the screen given the sharpness and clarity of images. The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 runs under a dual-core 1.4GHz, 1GB RAM, and 16GB or 32GB internal storage.
It features Android Gingerbread v2.3.5 OS but you may opt to upgrade it to Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. Zooming in into the performance and functionality of the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000, it is easy to tag it as one of the most powerful handhelds in the market today. A real powerhouse, it goes from home to application pages and back in a breeze. It has seven available home pages for user customization. There is wide array of widgets and apps to make the experience of the phone even funnier than it already is. The look of the screen will still depend on the user, however. Downloading applications might make the screen look cluttered.
This is only because the phone can accommodate up to a whopping 25 applications in a single page. The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 provides a functional dropdown menu for shortcuts to your most used settings and connections. This is indeed the perfect choice for those who live an active lifestyle which requires time management. Providing a premium performance, it is not surprising that the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 takes a step back with its battery life.
It has a good 2500mAh battery, but it still doesn’t suffice, primarily because it can’t keep up with the size of the display. For heavy Internet users, you have to keep your charger handy as it needs frequent charging. Like its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 is equipped with the old school stylus which most people call the S-pen. The S-pen deserves a thumb up as it works perfectly when taking down notes despite its size.
