Samsung Galaxy Note N700 Android Smart Phone Reviewed

In my previous post about Galaxy Note N700, I had the rear opportunity of appreciating its serious specifications that drastically raised benchmarks for smart phones to a new height. Looking at the manufacturer’s high-end genre collection, I could be wrong, but I must admit, I am adamant about excluding Samsung Galaxy Note N700 as the finest of them all. Although recent releases from major industry players such as Panasonic who have introduced new devices hitting new heights in their main camera megapixels, Samsung Galaxy Note N700 still outperforms them in various segments such as processor power, screen size and screen technology and features. In my previous post, I found it difficult to specify whether the Galaxy Note N700 was a tablet or a smart phone; it has a tablet’s characteristics such as a wider display screen and a smart phone’s features such as call functionality, even Samsung dint clearly categorize this product in their press release.

By clearly avoiding to categorize the Galaxy Note N700, Samsung seems to have intentionally employed this concept as a marketing strategy especially for those consumers who haven’t made up their minds on whether to get a tablet or smart phone.
It houses a 5.3 inch WXGA (1280X800 pixels) HD Super AMOLED display screen closely rivaling most tablets in the industry. Samsung Galaxy Note N700 runs on v2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system and it’s equipped with more flourished features such as a 1.4GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM and Mali-400MP and packs a serious 8.0-megapixel camera which is capable of recording 1080p quality video clips. Besides its classification troubles, it packs some serious specifications that would be of great importance to consumers that include telephony functions. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out Samsung Galaxy Note N700 to be a hybrid device; it’s a marketing phenomenon that most industry players are trying to achieve.
Samsung Galaxy Note measures 9.65mm thick and weighs only 178 grams; as a tablet, I must say, it’s the best portable tablet in the industry and as a smart phone, there is no clear match for its enormous capabilities. According to Samsung, the birth of Galaxy Note comes as a result of its continued innovation and careful study of the mobile culture, communication and entertainment to bring out the best experience in a single elegant device. The device also utilizes Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen technology to offer vivid images with clear HD characteristics than conventional HD display screens. Samsung Galaxy Note’s superior display panel provides unmatched web surfing experience bringing out presentations with high resolution.
