This phone is simply excellent, very responsive; the widescreen allows unparalleled ease of use (including the pdf reader, or ebooks, but also 1080p movies that are remarkably well supported). The size is not a constraint at all, unless the device is near to the ear several hours a day; you get used quickly to this. Besides, the phone fits well in a jeans pocket.
The only downside to me is the battery, but it is a reproach to all of current smartphones. Autonomy is about a day, for a moderately intensive use (I think a lot of applications run in the background and use network and, therefore, the battery).
Ultimately, this is a fantastic phone, I think we can't find better so far, this is the ideal compromise between the tablet and the phone. He is perfect in every way.
- Big screen
It is very good; resolution 1200 * 800 is a real pleasure, and I think it's much more relaxing for the eyes. There is no need to scroll the page 20 times to see all content and sometimes even have to zoom to read the content of a website.
The quality is impressive: it shoots in full HD at 1080p, and it is a feast for the eyes.
With its 8MP sensor, the photo quality is quite impressive. The flash is very good and very strong. You blow the retina of your guests, but it's for quality :)
The back of the pen is, in my humble opinion, very successful. Some smartphones have already tried that, but the market was not ripe in my opinion and above all screen sizes did not allow for optimal use of it. Here, use it intuitively, it allows easy make screenshots and edit them. It becomes the ideal companion halfway between the tablet and smartphone.
Though it was fully charged, you still have to recharge it every day of intensive use. It takes a long time to recharge fully (over 6h).
I expect one thing, the release of the latest version of Android, IceCream Sandwich, to test this phone thoroughly! Do not listen to comment like "it's too big." It fits in your pocket; you can easily call and the sound is clearer because the microphone is situated directly in front of the mouth. It is simply not like anything we have experienced so far. It'd be a shame not to enjoy it.Samsung N7000 Galaxy Note Unlocked Android Smart Phone with 16GB Internal Memory, 8MP Camera, HD Video, Super AMOLED Touch Screen, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi - Black
