Samsung Galaxy Note is an over-sized phone


 Galaxy note is a smartphone that serves as a tablet also as described by Samsung. This Smart phone is too big to call a smart phone and too small to consider as a tablet. Samsung is saying that Galaxy Note is a gadget that will fill up the gap between a Smartphone and a tablet. Though this product contains both the features of a tablet and a smart phone but it is slightly over-sized to call it a smart phone. Still some business users will find this Galaxy Note as a useful tool as they need something that will fit on their works space and they can get the maximum output of it while in a rush.

I’ll describe one model of Samsung Galaxy Note, the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. It is also known as Samsung I9220 and Samsung GT-N7000. It is a 4G device which operates on 2G, 3G, and 4G bands using the GSM, HSPA, and LTE technologies. It was announced on September 2011 and released a month after, October 2011. It measures 146.9 x 83 x 9.7 millimeters and weighs 178 grams.

It uses a mini-SIM card and includes an S Pen stylus. It has a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colors at 800 x 1280 pixels screen resolution. It supports multi-touch and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass with TouchWiz UI 4.0. It runs on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread upgradable to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean powered by Exynos chipset, dual core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and Mali-400 GPU.


It supports microSD can be expanded up to 64 GB. It runs on 1 GB RAM with internal storage available in 16 GB and 32 GB capacities. The primary camera supports 8 megapixels at 3264 x 2448 pixels with LED flash and autofocus. It supports geo-tagging, face and smile detection, and touch focus. It can record video in 1080p at 24 to 30 fps. The secondary camera supports 2 megapixels.

It has Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, and hotspot, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, NFC, and microUSB 2.0 (MHL TV-out) with USB Host. It has built-in accelerometer, proximity, compass, barometer, and gyro sensors. The built-in browser supports HTML5 with Adobe Flash. It supports Java. It runs on Li-Ion 2500 mAh battery with standby time up to 960 hours on 2G and 820 hours on 3G. Talk time is up to 26 hours 10 minutes on 2G and 13 hours 30 minutes on 3G.

Smartphones before or the early generations of Smartphones are just the same size as the usual phone. But later on as the competition continues, Smartphone manufacturers released a Smartphone that is quite bigger than the usual Smartphone which can be used as a phone and as a tablet.
