Can’t decide between a tablet or smartphone? With the brilliant Samsung Galaxy Note you don’t have to. With plenty of apps to choose from, stylus control and a glorious, pin-sharp display, this is a gadget that really has got the lot.
At the heart of the awesome Galaxy Note is its expansive screen. Using the same SuperAMOLED technology as the Galaxy S2, it makes watching media and playing games an absolute pleasure.
But it also means that the Note is great for business too. Because it supports use of a stylus, you just write directly on the screen, so it’s easy to jot down quick notes. That’s not all. The pre-installed note-taking app even records drawings and pictures you input, and can convert voice recordings into text.
As with all Android devices, the Note is peerless when it comes to apps. At the Android Market, you’ll find tens of thousands of incredible titles to choose from – many of which are totally free to download. With everything from games to more serious business tools up for grabs, there really is something for everyone.
Need a phone that’s a happy snapper too? You’re in the right place. The Note packs an eight megapixel camera with LED flash, face and smile detection and autofocus that means even less able photographers can get great results. It records video in 1080p@30fps too, so it’s perfect for adding a sheen of class to your mini movies.
Other features of the Galaxy Note include expandable memory of up to 32GB via microSD card support to give you ample room for music, movies and apps, a document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF) for when you're working on the move, a media player, web browser and push email.
You'll also get Google Maps pre-installed, which combines with a digital compass and GPS support to make the Galaxy Note a great route-finding device.
