A fresh note. Most currently-available high-end tablets feature Nvidia-based hardware solutions. While these are certainly good choices, Samsung chose to make use of its own in-house technology for the brand new Galaxy Note 10.1. In doing so, Samsung has hit a home run in terms of performance. As well, the Korean manufacturer has reintroduced the use of the formerly ubiquitous stylus.

But because they aren’t, and because we’re truly lovers of a unique experience, it’s easy to recommend this tablet as one of the most versatile smart devices on the market today. With the S-Pen, fun and entertaining connectivity with the rest of the Samsung Galaxy devices for media and communication, and one of the newest versions of Google’s mobile OS onboard, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is certainly the hottest Android tablet carried by Verizon today. Have a peek and start penning away!

Nexus 10 vs Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet comparison review

The Note 10.1 is an interesting and useful tablet. It's S-Pen offers creative options that make it unique amongst today's breed of tablets. It is reasonably priced and performs well. But the Nexus 10 is a game changer: the first tablet that can outperform the iPad, and priced to shift. It's just a shame it is tough to get hold of.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is a bold experiment; the concept clearly has potential. However, the execution is wide of the mark – despite glimmers of excellence, the fiddly S Note software sours the experience. With the right software, the Note 10.1’s appeal could be rejuvenated, but as it stands, it’s an intriguing concept that just doesn’t quite come off.

If you don’t use the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 as a stylus device, it is a good tablet, but chances are that you can find very competitive offers out there that will outperform it in one way or another. The value of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is clearly not in the “specs” alone.

Granted, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 lacks the one competitive spec that other top-tier tablets—specifically the Acer Iconia Tab A700, Apple iPad, and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700—have at the same or lesser price. Samsung's rendering enhancements help lessen the sting of this omission somewhat, but the difference is clear, particularly with text-heavy content. But, when you factor in the handy stowaway S Pen and Samsung's pen-optimized software, and suddenly the Note 10.1 gets an edge all its own. Throw in the Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi tablet's solid performance, and the Note 10.1 is squarely back in the mix.

So, really, is a stylus enough of a difference to make you choose this tablet over another? Actually, the more you use it, the more natural it becomes. And the nippy processor and extra RAM mean the Note 10.1 flies along very agreeably. The display is good, but not amazing. This tablet won’t win over Apple-fanciers, or those who want the faux-laptop qualities of the Asus Transformer series. But it’s smart, speedy and enjoyable to use.

It’s hard not to be immediately sceptical of a device that on the face of it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with an S-Pen thrown in. You really have to be sold on the S-Pen because in every other department, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 pales in comparison to the new iPad, Asus Transformer Pad Infinity and even the Google Nexus 7. Maybe the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will deliver the full package because at the moment, it’s not quite there.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 offers features you won’t find on iOS. But a third party stylus won’t cost the earth if you really need a pen substitute and for creativity, developers continue to push the most innovative and interactive apps in the direction of the iPhone and iPad. The Note has carved out a creative niche amidst tough competition from the very affordable Nexus 7 and the workaholic-friendly Transformer Infinity. But the iPad is still the tablet to beat.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is made from plastics. This has come to be accepted as standard from Samsung. But it is not because they just do not care, but because it is the best choice for what they set out to do. It keeps the weight down, which is important as devices get bigger and it is still sturdy. Design-wise, the device looks like most other Samsung devices out there at the moment, which is not a bad thing. Despite the proportions, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 still manages to be comfortable for one handed use. Buttons are only on the right side, with nothing but a microUSB port on the left. The S-Pen, which used to be one of the selling points of this device, seems unnecessary now. Android just does not seem to require stylus input, though there are undoubtedly users out there who cherish the S-Pen for specific purposes that are more niche.

The 1280 x 800 resolution and 189 ppi make for a beautiful display. As usual for Samsung, they have included plenty of bells and whistles, in the form of Samsung apps and features. It is enough to perplex the uninitiated in some cases or to simply take up space while the user only uses a handful of everyday apps. The Exynos 4 Quad that runs at 1,6 GHz paired with 2 GB RAM ensures smooth performance with no problems, and the battery life is decent. Overall, this is a great device, and is up there with the best 8 inch devices.

Bridging the gap. The Galaxy Note 8.0 with its powerful hardware and S Pen is designed to seamlessly integrate into Samsung's Galaxy portfolio and fill the gap between 5.5-inch and 10.1-inch devices. Can Samsung continue their success with this new member and potentially outsell the iPad Mini? We will have to see.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet is a solid product that feels well-built when you pick it up and handle it. Dropping it is probably not the best idea, but if you did so accidentally I’m sure it could survive a few bumps and bruises. Like most devices, the Galaxy Note 8 doesn't come with protectors or a case and this is left up to the consumer.

Samsung is the most prolific manufacturer on the planet. The Note 8 is the true goldilocks device of Samsung’s ever-growing Note range of tablets and smartphones. It offers excellent performance and it’s also rather eye-catching. We’re just not sure whether it’s worth more than the iPad Mini, however.

The Note 510 is a great performer with lacklustre build quality. The iPad mini is better built and has a larger apps ecosystem. The Galaxy Note 510 on the other hand has voice-calling, a better display, the S Pen functionality, expandable storage, multi-window capabilities and the Android OS with access to the Google Play store and Samsung app store. Both choices are good, and it comes down to price, and ecosystem preference for the user.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Proof the pen is mightier?

The Fire HD 8.9 also lacks many of the Note 8’s key and subsidiary features but at £230 is cheaper still and has a larger, 1920 x 1200, screen. The 16GB Nexus 7 is less than half the price. If the Note 8 included 3G in the £340 asking price - surely not an impossibility if Asus can offer the 3G FonePad for £180 - or was £50 cheaper, it would be an easy recommendation over all the competition, Android and iOS alike, but as it stands the price is perhaps a wee bit high.

There's one main problem with the Galaxy Note 8.0, and that's its high price tag. The tablet likely will appeal to fans of Samsung devices, but when Asus and Google are bringing out similarly specified tablets at a fraction of the price, we think the tablet will struggle to compete, even given its calling capability.

While you get two more cores with the Note 8.0 and the S Pen, and generally slightly better specifications, the choice as always boils down to the camp in which you are when it comes to software: Apple or Google. That said, if Android’s your tablet shtick, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is worth a look. The tablet is quick and works well and the S Pen’s a fun party trick that few other vendors can provide.

Overall it's an interesting concept, for those that want a tablet and smartphone in one device, aka a phablet, and think the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and rivals aren't big enough then this will be a likely front runner. However, you will look rather silly making a phone call if you don't use a hands-free method.

The Note 8.0 is an interesting tablet, that much is certain. It's one of the more powerful solutions on the market, and one of the only "tweener" options for those who aren't satisfied with other 7- and 10-inch form factor alternatives that abound. It's also equipped with a stylus (S Pen), which allows it to be far more functional that your average tablet.

If you love the idea of a traditional writing and drawing experience and prefer the more portable appeal over the Note 10.1 (or think the Note 2 is too small) then this is for you. If you're not really sold on the idea of brainstorming ideas with an S-Pen, but want a smaller sized tablet, the Nexus 7 or iPad Mini are cheaper options to go for instead.

There's a lot going for this design though. The size, we felt, was the perfect blend of portable and practical. There's enough space to use the S-Pen, but it will still fit in a winter coat pocket, just about. It is a well-built device and in the time we've spent with it, we've found ourselves thinking, "I could really enjoy owning one of these" far more than we thought "eugh".

The Galaxy Note 8.0 has a bunch of features you don't see on Apple's tablets, the Google Nexus 7, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)$187.99 at BUYDIG.com or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, most notably the S Pen and infrared TV remote. While you can duplicate those functions with other tablets, they require costly, clunky accessories. In a world where you can get a top-notch Android tablet for $200 and an iPad mini for $329, though, it's just too hard for me to recommend that you spend $400 instead. Artists, especially, will adore the Galaxy Note 8.0. But our Editors' Choice for small tablets, the best mainstream choice, remains the much less expensive, still very-capable Google Nexus 7.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is going to be your perfect Samsung GALAXY S 4 companion – it’s got the same design aesthetic, it has a lot of the same features, and they both come in white! Of course when you find yourself marveling over the fact that the GALAXY S 4 is able to compete with this tablet for processing power, you’ll be a bit baffled about your Note purchase.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is made for people who loved the experience with the Galaxy Note 2 with the S Pen and who like to take advantage of a larger display without breaking the bank. The Samsung Multi Window feature is perfect for this type of form factor. Knowing that one of the primary use of tablets is movie consumption while travelling, we would have expected a little longer battery longevity for the Galaxy Note 8.0. Nonetheless, the latest Samsung tablet packs serious performance in a thin and light body that can still be held with one hand. The entertainment experience is great, and the imaging quality is sufficient for a tablet usage.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005

Ah, the phablet. It won't fit in the pocket of skinny jeans, and it gives hands a workout because of its size. Fans of the Galaxy Note 2 should note that the screen has grown from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches, and is now an impressive 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED display. Like most Samsung offerings, it is solidly built and even good looking with its metal frame on the sides. The back is plastic that is textured to look like leather, complete with faux stitches. At a quick glance, this looks pretty good, but it really is quite tacky looking if you're paying attention. Still, it is the best looking of the Note line. Samsung have managed to make the Note 3 slightly smaller than the Note 2 overall, and lighter too despite larger screen, more performance and better specs.

Under the hood is the 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 3 GB of RAM. Multitasking poses no problems which can be expected since the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 features the best specs among Android phones at the moment. Samsung has significantly improved the S Pen functionality with the Air Command controller. Triggered when the user slides out the S Pen, it allows one to launch great S Pen friendly apps with a single tap. Battery life is great and it will easily last more than a day of heavy use. Overall, this is a great device, and easily recommended as long as the size of this phablet is acceptable to the user.

The third time is the charm? The newest addition to Samsung's successful Galaxy Note series comes with a huge 5.7-inch display - fitting, given the current trend toward ever-larger smartphone screen sizes. But is this beast truly a sight to behold or is it actually a step in the wrong direction?
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Source: Phone Arena English
Still, overall, the Note Edge is a considerable upgrade over the Note 3 - it comes with a sharper, Quad HD screen, and while your eyes might not be able to tell much of the difference in terms of sharpness, they would appreciate the improved color accuracy. The OIS camera is also a nice step up on the Note Edge, as it captures some of the best shots we’ve seen from a smartphone and does so consistently, while the Note 3 is a bit less capable. Performance wise, the Note Edge has the faster chips, but the performance boost is very slight and most of the gains are offset by the higher-res display.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Source: Phone Arena English
Unsuprisingly, the Galaxy Note 4 is a better phablet than its predecessor in every regard. It has a nicer build, an incredible display, a faster processor, revamped interface and enhanced functionality, along with a better camera, and a slightly longer battery life. If you are a fan of big-screen phones, and the Galaxy Note line in particular, there's hardly anything unlikeable about the fourth-generation Galaxy Note.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Source: Phone Arena English
The iPhone 6 Plus is Apple's first foray into the phablet borderland, and it impresses on most counts. It brings everything you can expect from an iPhone in a much larger package – the build is as premium as ever, and the screen is bright and very accurate. In contrast, the Note 3 has a not-so-impressive plastic body, but it has replaceable battery and microSD slot. Note 3's AMOLED screen is not color-accurate, though many love the oversaturated hues it produces.

100% Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
It's a big handset that certainly won't be suitable for everyone, but it has already come down in price since it launched. It is currently available SIM-free for £549 direct from Samsung. On contract you can get the handset free from Vodafone on a two year, £35.50 per month contract with unlimted minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of 4G data. If you can stump up that much cash per month for the full length of a 24-month contract then this is an outstanding slice of technology. There's not much choice when it comes to such giant phones, but when the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is this good, that's not really a problem.

LG G3 vs Note 3 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Winning five rounds to the Galaxy Note 3's two, the LG G3 is the overall winner. Featuring a more intelligent design, crisper screen and significantly better camera, the LG G3 is one of the finest Android smartphones currently available. However, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 over halfway through its product lifecycle this really isn't all that surprising. LG's real competition is yet to arrive and things could well change with the launch of Samsung's fabled 2014 phablet, the Galaxy Note 4.

Having won four rounds to the Galaxy Note 3's two rounds the Galaxy S5 is the winner of our head to head review. Featuring a more ergonomic, water and dust resistant design, more robust portfolio of security services and significantly better rear camera than its phablet predecessor, the Galaxy S5 is currently the best Samsung handset available. However, featuring a larger, but equally impressive screen, slightly better battery and useful S Pen Stylus, there is still plenty to like about the Galaxy Note 3. If Samsung had got its act together and updated the phablet to the current KitKat version of Android and new version of Touchwiz, the battle would have been far, far closer.

After several weeks with a Galaxy Note 3 in hand, it’s clear that it is the best large-screened, stylus-supporting smartphone you can get. The S-Pen is the perfect companion tool for annotations on the fly, with some seriously impressive software enhancements – especially S Note and Action Memo. Performance from the Galaxy Note 3 is fantastic, and this time both the Exynos and Snapdragon models are up to scratch. There’s still no HMP support for the octa-core Exynos, but the lag is gone and performance is largely on-par with the Qualcomm model. I’d still be wanting Snapdragon-only features such as LTE and 4K video recording in my Note, but the Exynos model is still a solid choice.

For Rs 45,000, the Note 3 offers an excellent screen with solid multimedia performance. The stylus implementation is nicely done. So in short, if you're fine lugging around a big phone that requires both hands to operate, go ahead and buy the Note 3. It's one of the most powerful, oversized handset you can currently get in India. On the other hand, considering the phone's 45k price, the phone's interface doesn't feel premium. In fact, it feels cluttered at many places. The design is another aspect where Samsung needs to work on. So if you're not overly finicky about the specs, the LG Optimus G pro is a very good alternative. Priced under 30,000, it's a good Rs 15,000 cheaper too.

The Note 3 is an excellent evolution of the series and is by far our favourite large-screen phone. It is powerful, long lasting and has some noticeable improvements over the previous Notes. Ultimately its suitability will come down to whether or not the form factor is suitable for your needs – we know enough people in the pro- and anti-Phablet camps to try and make that decision for you. But if you want a larger screen than standard, and are prepared for the compromises that feature brings, the Note 3 is far and away the best option. Yet another truly excellent piece of hardware from Samsung.

From outsider to favorite in only three years

In the end, what’s left to say for Note 3 and gear? First of all, this general increase in number of everyday devices that are transformed into smart devices is becoming a trend, which is not a bad thing at all. Second of all, Note 3 isn’t much of an upgrade for Note 2 owners and it just isn’t worth the investment. Note 3, as an upgrade from a smaller model is an ideal solution.

You can find the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 retailing online for about Rs 47,000, which is still a very high price for what’s on offer. Granted, the phone is packed to the gills with the latest hardware and specs but it lacks that premium look and feel. Faux chrome and leather is not something you want to see when you’re shelling out more than Rs 40,000. And then there’s all that plastic, which doesn’t really help its case. Samsung’s TouchWiz can get freaky at times too as we experienced random slow-downs and moments where the phone would just switch off when the display is off. However, nothing beats the Note 3 when it comes to battery life and stylus input as it's still among the best in the biz. I’m not sure if the falling rupee value is to blame entirely but all flagship smartphones seem incredibly overpriced and they really need to come down a notch or two, especially the droids. If you own a Note 2, then the Note 3 won’t really feel like much of an upgrade apart from the fact that it’s slimmer, lighter and has a slightly better camera.

Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comparison review: specifications and price
Source: PC Advisor English
In some ways (not least of which is that we’ve not got our hands on the 1520) it’s too early to give concrete buying advice. However, on the other hand, the fact that the Note 3 runs Android is a big advantage over the Lumia 1520 which runs Windows Phone 8. Both phablets have good cameras, but each has different strengths and weaknesses. With very similar processors, neither will disappoint when it comes to performance. We’ll update this review once we’ve fully tested out the Lumia 1520.

The speedy Snapdragon 800 SoC with Adreno 330 graphics, relatively fast internal storage, 3GB of system memory and Android 4.3 team up to produce an experience that’s currently among the best in the Android-based smartphone market.

Impressive though it undoubtedly is, the new Note 3 doesn't eclipse the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The Ultra’s screen is larger and more natural in hue; Sony’s tweaked version of Android is a darned sight less confusing than Samsung’s; the bespoke Sony media apps are better if only by a small margin; and the battery life seemed better.

Both the G Pro and the Z Ultra pack some impressive hardware with the Z Ultra boasting of weather-proof capabilities as well.

However, you’ll have to contend with the extra applications and features that the company bundled with the Note 3. You must manually turn off features like Smart scroll when they’re not in use if you want to preserve battery life (and, possibly, your sanity), and you must ignore the fact that Samsung’s less-superior S-Voice is the default personal digital assistant. In exchange, you’ll have a powerhouse phone designed for multitaskers, with a quad-core processor, forward-thinking video-recording abilities, and battery life sufficient to get you through long, ardous days.

Sony Xperia Z1 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone comparison review - which is the best Android phone?
Source: PC Advisor English
It's a close run thing, and we'd recommend you handle both of these handsets before you buy. The Note 3 is the better performer, but we're talking about a level of performance on both phones which is more than adequate for everything you need to do. It has a bigger, more colourful screen - but not everyone wants a huge screen and the Xperia Z1 has a sharper display anyway. Camera wise we'd err toward the Z1, but neither is earth-shatteringly good. And battery life is about even, albeit with the Z1 again marginally on top. They run similar software similarly well, and although only the Z1 is waterproof, they are both built to last. You pays your money you takes your chance. Two great phones that show how far Android has come.

The Galaxy Note 3 is very much an evolution, with the specs starting to top out. The 3GB of RAM, the 13MP camera and octa-core processor are all nice additions, as well as things like superfast 4G on board. It's excellent sonically, can display superbly crisp images, and has a number of tweaks to the camera that mean it can take decent snaps. Those are the things we want to judge the Note 3 on, not the ability to click the S Pen in a different manner. We're not sold on the design of the back, nor the high price - but there still seems to be an appetite for the Note range, so perhaps this is just the handset Samsung needs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition is the latest installment of Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Focusing on design, the screen size is 10.1 inches and Samsung has updated the exterior with sharper edges and a more slim line look. The rear panel is made from faux leather with faux stitching. The overall button layout is familiar with the large middle home button being in between the touch sensitive back and menu buttons. The speakers have been moved to the sides of the device instead of the previous forward facing position.

The Wifi/3G version comes with 1.9 GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad chipset and the LTE version is shipped with the 2.3 GHz Quad chipset. Both versions come with 3 GB RAM and internal memory of 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB; with the ability to support microSD up to 64GB. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition comes with an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 2-megapixel front facing camera. The battery capacity is a whopping 8.220 mAh and powers the Android 4.3 (JB) operating system.

The S Pen has been improved with the advanced hover-over feature which allows the quick shortcut menu to pop up with the press of the stylus button. Handwriting recognition has also been enhanced making it brilliant to use on the device. Samsung has definitely improved the initial Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 making the 2014 Edition a strong upgrade.

Update Craze. Samsung has been bringing "updated" devices to the market as often as possible. The new Galaxy Note 10.1 from 2012 is now succeeded by the "Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition". The hardware is the latest on the market but can it, and the software, secure the top spot in the market?

It’s expensive for an Android tablet, but it’s more fully featured than both the Amazon Kindle HDX and the Nexus 10 and is the strongest all-round rival to the iPad Air. Our preference still lies with the iPad Air for its more appealing design, superior tablet-specific apps and faster performance, but Samsung is steadily closing the gap.

Of course, it could be too late by then, as the inexorable tablet tide continues to wash dreamy Droid devices onto our shores with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it regularity, but the potential is there. In fact, we’d say this is Samsung’s best tablet yet. It's just a shame that that's still not quite good enough to dethrone the mighty iPad.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet vs iPad Air vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014): the weigh-in
Source: Stuff TV English
On paper, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet beats its rivals across most of our categories, but that battery life is a niggling concern; will it be enough to make best use of its features? For the time being, Apple's iPad Air is still comfortably ensconced in the top spot on our Top 10 Tablets list. But we foresee the latest Sony tablet giving it a run for its money. Check back for our full review of the Xperia Z2, and our updated showdown.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a top-quality tablet. It's as fast as a Kindle Fire HDX, has a good screen, decent great battery life, stylus support and expandable memory, along with infrared, universal remote-control support. It's expensive for an Android tablet: at £399, this tablet is £70 more expensive than both the Amazon Kindle HDX 8.9in and Nexus 10. It's more fully featured than both, however, and the strongest all-round rival to the iPad Air in the larger-tablet sector yet. Our preference still lies with the iPad Air for its more appealing design, superior tablet-specific apps and faster performance, but Samsung is steadily closing the gap.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) review: the 10-inch high-end Samsung tablet gets a little makeover
Source: PC Advisor English
This latest Samsung offering joins the esteemed ranks of the Note series, which has been largely responsible for the phablet craze of the past two years. The main thing that distinguishes this 10in tablet from its brethren Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the inclusion of the S-Pen stylus and accompanying software. To save you losing the S-Pen Samsung has included a neat slot in the upper right hand side of the case. You might think this would result in a thick, or at least bulbous, device but the Note 10.1 is decidedly slim in the hands. It's reasonably light too thanks in part to the predominantly plastic construction. Take a look at Best Android tablets.

So back to the important question - is the Note 10.1 better than the iPad Air? It’s good, but it’s not quite an iPad killer. The 2014 Note offers smooth performance and is the better device if note taking is a priority. But the iPad Air has 475,000 apps build specifically for its large screen, a better screen and superior battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition video review: one of the best 10 Android tablets around
Source: PC Advisor English
Aside from the Touchwiz interface and fake stitching, the Note 10.1 is a very good tablet. It doesn’t feel as premium, nor look as classy as the iPad Air. The other problem is that the Note is £50 more expensive than the equivalent iPad Air, but the S-Pen is a genuine benefit for those who want it.

Samsung's tablets get classier and better each time. The Note 10.1 2014 edition is excellent. It's effective, well-built and has a gorgeous screen. It's well-sized, light enough to manage and the S Pen stylus is a very well executed addition. It's not cheap, and there are plenty of alternatives that are almost as good as the Note and will save you money. Still, this is a fine and appealing tablet with lots of features and a great processor running it all at speed.

80% The Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) is the Swiss Army Knife of tablets
Source: Techradar English
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is a bit of a Swiss Army Knife, in that it offers a slightly compromised tool for almost every job you could imagine. If you demand supreme flexibility from your full-size tablet above all else, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is pretty tough to beat. Not only is it light and powerful, but the S Pen will prove extremely useful to those who still struggle to be truly productive on a finger-operated touchscreen. However, if you're a couch surfer or a more general tablet user, Samsung's somewhat undesirable hardware design and overly fussy software mean that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 lags quite far behind the likes of the iPad Air and even the Nexus 10.

The exterior and design of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is superb. The leather-like rear backing adds a nice touch to an industry that's in dire need of design innovation. The 2560x1600 Super Clear LCD is perhaps the most gorgeous display in the tablet universe, and the 8MP rear camera is probably the most accomplished that you'll find on any slate today.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 2014 Edition is an excellent upgrade to the first generation even if it shares some of the same problems at release as it’s predecessor. This is a premium tablet at a premium price that’s worth it if you’re looking for a great pen-enabled tablet. If you don’t intend to use the S Pen, the Note isn’t significantly more exciting than the Sony Xperia Tablet Z (currently $420 on Amazon).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition picks up exactly where last year's model left off, making key upgrades to the display and internal components, while building on its core stylus and multitasking features. But for all its upgrades, this year's Note 10.1 feels rougher around the edges, and the frequent app crashes were a source of frustration. Fortunately, though, the bugs and app compatibility are things that can be fixed with time via software updates, which Samsung has been better about as of late. One key sticking point this year will be price—at $550 for the base 16GB model, the Note 10.1 is now more expensive than the $500 Apple iPad, which is still king when it comes to tablet apps. The iPad, however, can't match the Note 10.1's multitasking or pressure sensitive stylus, and those are two features that genuinely change how useful a tablet can be. It's also worth mentioning that Apple is expected to release a new iPad in the coming weeks. We don't have any details on pricing or features, but it will likely be a strong contender.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.2 2014 Edition takes the concept of the Galaxy Note series and gives it just as fine a quality as the newest Galaxy Note handset in a full-sized tablet edition. It’s as simple as that. With a display that’s bright enough, color accurate enough, and sharp enough to keep up with and out-do the competition here in 2013, this machine does more than just make us excited about what’s waiting in 2014′s crop of slates. Samsung sets the benchmark for fine quality and unique abilities with the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, and with the Exynos 5 Octa processor under the hood, it’ll be ready to roll with the most powerful apps for many moons, as well.

60% Galaxy Note 10.1 review: It takes more than high-end specs to make a great tablet
Source: TechHive.com English
Android tablets still have a long way to go before they can match the experience provided by Apple's slates. The 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has improved specs over its predecessor, but the random slowdowns and overabundance of Samsung software make it hard to recommend over Google's new Nexus 7. If you're craving a tablet with a larger screen and can't do without the stylus, you might be better served to pick up an iPad and spend some extra cash on a dedicated Bluetooth pen instead.

This year's version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tad more expensive than its predecessor, but is it worth the $550 for the baseline model? In terms of hardware, there's no doubt that Samsung has massaged all of the sore spots from the first Note 10.1: it's thinner and lighter; it offers a gorgeous display and top-notch sound; it packs better specs; and it sports a cleaner design.

And in six months time, this could be a five-star tab. Improvements to the day-to-day performance are vital, and those could be implemented through firmware.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is designed for the "prosumer" with extensive productivity and multitasking being the focus. It has a stunning 12.2" WQXGA display with plenty of real estate. The Enhanced Multi Window feature splits the screen in four different ways for seamless multitasking.

While the LTE model uses a Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz Quad-Core, the 3G model features an Exynos 5 Octa-Core (1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad). Both models come with 3 GB RAM, a choice of 32 GB or 64 GB depending on the region and the capability to support micro SD up to 64 GB. The device is fitted with an 8 MP rear and a 2 MP front camera. Other hardware features include USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS+GLONASS. The entire setup is powered with a 9500 mAh battery giving it plenty of juice. The LTE model weighs 735 g and the 3G model weighs 750g and comes in two colors, black or white.

The S Pen is improved with the hover shortcut function found on all latest Note series devices. Handwriting recognition is also enhanced which makes it a delight to use on such a big screen. The device also introduces a new application called Remote PC. This allows the user to remotely access a PC or Mac directly from the tablet. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), is definitely well-built, and will satisfy users looking for a larger screen to work on.

Surface Pro 3 vs Galaxy NotePro 12.2 comparison: two powerful 12in tablets but only one will replace your laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, both the Surface Pro 3 and Galaxy NotePro 12.2 are impressive tablets that offer stunning, big, bright and colourful displays. They're both ideal for multi-tasking – running more than one app simultaneously, side by side – though you won't be able to run powerful desktop apps like Photoshop on the Android tablet like you can on the Surface. If you're simply looking for a tablet with an enormous display, you'll probably find you're better off with the NotePro 12.2, but for a device that could potentially replace your laptop completely, it's the mid- to high-range Surface Pro 3 models you're after.

Video: Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a seriously impressive tablet that blows away other Androids
Source: PC Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a seriously impressive tablet that blows away the vast majority of Android tablets and leaves them eating its dust in terms of power. If you've got £600 to blow and want a tablet that's bigger than 10-inches then this powerhouse won't disappoint in terms of performance and looks, and to be frank it's your only option as it's the only device out there like this.

Samsung's thumb-achingly ENORMO Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Source: Reg Hardware English
At around £650, the Note Pro is not a cheap device. Sony’s new Xperia Z2 10-inch tablet costs £250 less though, to be fair, the more comparable Tab Pro 12.2 can be yours for around £550. Still, you do get an awful lot of tablet for your money and the long battery life will be an appealing feature if you are a dedicated slab fondler. Moreover, the pre-loaded business software could find favour among corporates types or those fated to BYOD.

70% Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 review: a 12-inch powerhouse of a tablet that's too big for it's own good
Source: PC Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a tablet that is pretty much on its own in the Android market, that said it appears very well built and packed full of interesting software. It’s not a tablet that we can recommend for the average user, but if there is much of a market out there for powerful big screened tablets then the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is going to be leading the charge.

70% Samsung Galaxy Note Pro review

In fact some convertible Ultrabooks, which offer a balance of tablet and laptop features, cost even less than the Note Pro, such as Lenovo's Ideapad Yoga 13, which comes with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and 13.3-inch 1600x900 screen. So as much as we want to like the Galaxy Note Pro, we really can't see any reason to be excited by it. Perhaps its near twin, the Galaxy Tab Pro, will offer better value for money, but we can't help but feel that as far as Android tablet sizes go, 12.2 inches is well past the point of diminishing returns.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 64 GB WiFi and 3G Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is labeled as a "business" tablet, and that gives it a completely different persona. This tablet may not completely replace your laptop for many tasks, but it does come quite close. The display is very good and comes in a typical Samsung style. There are the gamut of features including the complete S-Pen ecosystem of apps. A bunch of preloaded business centric apps give the tablet some extra productive capabilities than most tablets. However, the big screen size may be an issue for some users, and I am not really sure why the same could not have been replicated with the same screen size as the one on the fantastic Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

Source: PC Pro English
The NotePRO 12.2 is aimed at a professional market (it's too heavy to compete with other consumer-focused tablets), and there are undoubtedly business scenarios where a larger-screened tablet makes sense, particularly with a pressure-sensitive stylus. That's not to say the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 isn't a fabulous piece of hardware. We love the screen, we love the S Pen, we love its general performance (although not the responsiveness of the new UI elements), and we like the design. If you're looking for a versatile tablet-style device for business, however, this isn't the one we'd recommend. Save up a little longer and go for a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 instead.

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2: First impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
What's nice about the NotePRO is its compatibility with Android phones and Google services. You'll have to weigh whether that's more important than running Windows software and whether all that is worth the $750 price. And keep in mind that compared with Apple's iOS system, Android still doesn't have as many apps specifically designed for the tablet's screen size. Many tablet apps are simply larger versions of phone apps. The iPad is also cheaper, starting at $499, though the base model comes with half the storage available in the NotePRO's $750 model.

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 vs Surface Pro 2 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
However, for us here at V3, the Surface Pro 2 beats the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 in a few key areas. Reviewed as a purely business tablet, the Surface Pro 2 features an admittedly less pretty, but more functional design and superior performance. Thanks to the use of Windows 8.1, the Surface Pro 2 also features a more robust portfolio of business and productivity focused services. By comparison, while cheaper and still very enterprise friendly, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's victories tended to be more consumer focused. That said, for those interested in a device for work and play the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's display and superior battery mean it will be better for certain consumer purposes, like media consumption.

We like the NotePro 12.2’s large screen, and its business-focused nature, but we think many people would be better off spending much less on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. The NotePro 12.2 can’t replace your laptop if you rely on MS Office or specific software, though, and the lack of a physical keyboard is another disadvantage when you can buy an Ultrabook for around the same price. We think the NotePro is too expensive at £700, especially when tablets are still an uncommon sight in the workplace.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review Samsung throws everything into the fledgling maxi-tablet category
Source: Techradar English
As the first significant manufacturer to step forward with its vision of a super-sized tablet, Samsung has quite a job on its hands to convince the world that there is a genuine need, and that this isn't just a gimmick. If nothing else, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 successfully answers that question to the affirmative. It's not a tablet you'll want to lug around with you or whip out in public, and it is dauntingly expensive. But if productivity is foremost in your mind as you shop for an Android tablet, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's combination of huge HD display and S Pen interactivity is a compelling combination.

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 deep-dive review: Almost a laptop replacement
Source: Computerworld.com English
All this doesn't come cheap: If you want the Wi-Fi-only versions, you need to be willing to shell out $750 for the 32GB model or $850 for the 64GB model. If you also purchase the keyboard, mouse and cover that I used at MWC, it can add up to $170 more. At that point, you might be asking yourself: Why didn't I get a Chromebook for $320? Samsung is known for offering many different models of the various devices it makes and already has a range of tablet screen sizes -- it has now added a 12.2-in form factor. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is powerful and capable, and could be valuable for many students and mobile workers if they can adjust to typing on a virtual screen or with a Bluetooth keyboard. If only it didn't come with such a high sales price.

80% Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review: Excellent tablet, but no notebook replacement
Source: Zdnet.com English
At the start of this review we said the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 offers a glimpse of a future where tablet-based working is the norm. It's certainly the closest we've seen to a tablet that could see us through a working day without recourse to a notebook. But there's still a way to go. The bottom line is that, compelling though the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is, £649 (inc. VAT; £541 ex. VAT) will buy you a well-appointed notebook that offers more capability for the average mobile professional.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2: Don’t Ditch Your Laptop Just Yet
Source: Recode English
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 uses Samsung’s latest processor and, generally, performance was smooth. The tablet did become slightly sluggish when working in multiple apps. Battery life was solid. Though I didn’t do a formal battery test, the tablet lasted more than a day with moderate to heavy usage before needing to recharge. Despite the productivity features and extra-large screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 can’t match the power of a laptop, and with its sky-high price tag, it’s hard to recommend even as a standalone tablet. You’re better off investing your money in one of the many affordable Windows 8 devices, or going for a less-clumsy tablet like the iPad Air or even the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Surface Pro 2 versus Galaxy Note Pro: a productivity smackdown
Source: PC World English
With phones, tablets, phablets, and ultrabooks available in a staggering array of sizes and configurations, true road warriors can order up pretty much what they want. And that includes operating systems. I worked for a prolonged period on a Chromebox, just to see if it could be done, but in the end I returned to Windows. In the final analysis, if I were forced to spend my own money, I’d pick the slightly cheaper Note Pro. But if I could charge the bill to my company, I’d ask for the Surface Pro 2. But in the end, I mostly chose the Surface Pro 2 based on subjective preference, rather than any technical roadblocks on Android’s part. And that’s a flimsy ledge for Microsoft to cling to.

Source: PC World English
Spending $750 for an Android tablet seems exorbitant. But the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro offers a larger screen, excellent battery life, and access to the Android and Samsung app stores. The sum of its parts—a large screen, excellent fantastic battery life, multi-app windows, and equivalent PC software—not only make the Note Pro a viable choice for a tablet enthusiast, but a jumping-off point for an adventuresome road warrior to leave the Windows world entirely. If only Samsung could knock another $150 or so off the price.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review: a tablet that proves bigger isn't always better

To me, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is quintessential Samsung. It's emblematic of that spaghetti-to-the-wall approach we've seen the company indulge in time and again. I don't know that the Note Pro 12.2 needs to exist because I don't know that there's actually a niche hungry enough for this product.

With its big, high-res screen, octa-core processor, deeply integrated stylus and powerful office suite, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a strong choice for business users. However, the device feels bulky, and you'll need to spend more than the somewhat steep $749 price to add a keyboard. For that kind of money, we would hope to get a true clamshell-shaped hybrid, like the $799 Lenovo Yoga 13 or $650 ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T.

Or at least - not yet. What's it good for? Multi-tasking, viewing documents, conferencing and catching up with the news. What's it not so good for? Long stretches of typing, gaming and using in impromptu situations. The NotePRO 12.2 might not be perfect and it certainly isn't cheap, but in one or two iterations, this could be the go-to business tablet Samsung is aiming for. When it's lighter with a zippier interface and more apps compatible with its nifty features, it will be worth that steep price. The NotePRO 12.2 is a typically Samsung gamble and it largely pays off. Now, we've just got to find somewhere to put it...

Source: V3.co.uk English
Even though the iPad Air scored an impressive five stars when we reviewed it on release last year, since then the market has moved on and having won four of our nine rounds to the iPad Air’s three, we’ve got to give the best enterprise tablet award out of these two devices to the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2in. However, with two of the rounds resulting in draws the battle has been a close one and both tablets certainly have merit in the workplace. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 offers users a sizeable display, an array of productivity-focused applications and services, a robust battery life and a useful S Pen stylus. But to counter this, the iPad Air boasts a more travel-friendly design, more robust security and is significantly cheaper.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is not a tablet suited for most people. It’s big, it’s relatively heavy and it’s quite expensive. However, this is an area without many rivals. If a 10.1-inch screen isn’t big enough and a pressure sensitive stylus is a must, this is actually a very successful tablet. The Samsung UI remains overwrought in places, but looks better than before and works pretty well on the big screen. And the S Pen works better than ever before thanks to the increased screen space.

Our general experience with the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has been positive. While the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 does cost a hefty £650, it comes loaded with a number of key services and features that help justify it. On a hardware level, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 features a decent screen, powerful processor and a decent battery life. Samsung's backed these impressive specs up with a number of security services and applications, such as S Note and Knox. The combination of top-end hardware and useful productivity and security-focused software make the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 one of the safest and most business-friendly tablets available.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE (SM-P905)

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is designed for the "prosumer" with extensive productivity and multitasking being the focus. It has a stunning 12.2" WQXGA display with plenty of real estate. The Enhanced Multi Window feature splits the screen in four different ways for seamless multitasking.

While the LTE model uses a Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz Quad-Core, the 3G model features an Exynos 5 Octa-Core (1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad). Both models come with 3 GB RAM, a choice of 32 GB or 64 GB depending on the region and the capability to support micro SD up to 64 GB. The device is fitted with an 8 MP rear and a 2 MP front camera. Other hardware features include USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS+GLONASS. The entire setup is powered with a 9500 mAh battery giving it plenty of juice. The LTE model weighs 735 g and the 3G model weighs 750g and comes in two colors, black or white.

The S Pen is improved with the hover shortcut function found on all latest Note series devices. Handwriting recognition is also enhanced which makes it a delight to use on such a big screen. The device also introduces a new application called Remote PC. This allows the user to remotely access a PC or Mac directly from the tablet. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), is definitely well-built, and will satisfy users looking for a larger screen to work on.

Diet. Samsung offers light versions of its smartphone models under the product name Neo. The Galaxy Note 3 Neo is a slimmed down version of its big brother.

70% Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo review: An excellent, cheaper option if you’ve always wanted a Note 3
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The biggest issue with this phone currently is the unoptimised firmware and terrible lag, for which we recommend you hold off on your purchase till Samsung figures out how to fix it. The purple flicker on the display only happens on the homescreen and is something that doesn’t affect apps or video playback. If Samsung can sort this mess out with a KitKat update then we don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t buy the Note 3 Neo. It has excellent battery life, a capable camera, powerful CPU and GPU which can easily run the most demanding of games and a well-rounded set of features.

60% Review: Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Neo
Source: Techtree.com English
The Note 3 Neo (Rs 38,000) is a watered-down version of the original Note 3 (Rs 42,500). The Neo lacks the Note 3’s Full HD screen, 13 megapixel camera, and 3 GB RAM. If you like large screen phones with stylus, it makes sense to stretch your budget by 4.5k and purchase the Note 3. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a powerful handset, the GALAXY S5 is a much better deal for Rs 28,000. Long story short, there’s no point in buying the Note 3 Neo for its current price of 38,000.

Source: NDTV Gadgets English
All points considered; if you are looking for a sturdy phablet with a powerful stylus for note taking, a big, beautiful screen and great battery life, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo as it might just serve the purpose. But be warned, the performance of the Neo is middling for an expensive device. At the time of this review, online e-commerce websites were retailing it at approximately Rs. 36,500 whereas the Note 3 retails for Rs. 43,500. Give the elder sibling a serious thought before settling on the Neo. If you don't need the stylus and can live with a smaller screen, we would also suggest that you take a look at the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the LG G2, which perform better.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the latest update to Samsung's Galaxy Note phablet series. After many design adaptations, Samsung finally decided to use premium materials such as a full metal frame while keeping profile sleek and the edges curved elegantly. Only the soft textured back cover is kept for superior grip especially during single handed usage.

The 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 glass for added durability. There are two models of the Android 4.4 KitKat device: the 2.7 GHz quad core processor model and the 1.9 GHz octa core processor model. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 supports 3 GB RAM and an internal storage space of 32 GB. Users can upgrade the memory size with an additional 128 GB using microSD support. Primary camera on the phablet is a 16 MP Smart OIS sensor with Fast AF while the front facing camera is a 3.7 MP sensor rated at f/1.9.

Technologies on the device include a fingerprint sensor (PayPal certified), the famous S Pen stylus, which has also been upgraded, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and even a heart rate sensor. Battery life is good with a lithium ion cell rated at 3220 mAh powering the system. The entire package weighs in at just 176 g.

90% Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Dazzler. The concept of the Galaxy Note, a high-end smartphone with a digitizer, is still unique and well implemented by Samsung. But the device cannot utilize the promised additional performance of the Snapdragon 805. However, the Note 4 probably has the best smartphone display, which shines bright and can also convince outdoors.
Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy Note 4
Source: V3.co.uk English
The Note 4 still has a lot going for it. It falls down slightly only in terms of design, camera, and storage. In respect of the latter, at least it can be augmented with microSD. Yes it lacks iris scanning, it isn't waterproof, and the S Pen doesn't boast the bells and whistles of the newer model, but these aren't essentials in our eyes.

Twelve months on, the Note 4 is still a creative powerhouse that can just about keep up with the latest flagships and beats most rival phablets for useful features. The fingerprint sensor has been surpassed and the leathery design is still divisive, but long battery life, strong optics and that gorgeous, spacious screen are all serious plus points.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note 5: What's the difference between Note 4 and Note 5?
Source: PC Advisor English
With significantly improved performance, a more user-friendly fingerprint scanner and S Pen stylus, and the premium glass-and-metal design, we see no reason why you would choose the Note 4 over the Note 5 given the very similar pricing. However, you may feel the removable battery, microSD support and IR blaster in the Note 4 are enough to make you choose it over the new Galaxy Note; it's also the only phone of the two that is available on a contract in the UK.

Although members of the one and the same product family, the two phablets are both extremely similar and noticeably different from each other simultaneously. While the Note 4 can be safely viewed as one of the most feature-rich phones Samsung has made to date, the Note5 is going down a different, more design-oriented path. With “form over function” kicking in inside Samsung's camp, the Note 4 could be regarded as the last great dinosaur of a dying era.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Source: Phone Arena English
Yet we must admit that the Galaxy S6 edge is better than the Note 4 in many ways, and we're not talking only about the outstanding design and build quality it draws so much attention with. Samsung's curvy flagship phone shines with its blazing hardware performance and with the responsiveness of its software, which is enough for us to recommend it over “older” Samsung handsets. Not that the Galaxy Note 4 is a slow phone – its Snapdragon 805 can handle anything thrown at it – but the Galaxy S6 edge is more refined of a smartphone with its superior hardware configuration, and that's a plus.

It is astonishing how smartphones, as advanced as they've become, are still evolving at a steady pace. When we reviewed the Galaxy Note 4 several months ago, it was hard to imagine how a handset could get any better, yet here we are, holding on to the Samsung Galaxy S6 which gives the answers to our question. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is better than the Galaxy Note 4 in many ways. It isn't leading by much, but ultimately, it does deliver a bigger bang for your buck considering that the two phones carry a similar on-contract price tag. Of course, making the choice between the two will be affected by one's priorities, but the number of reasons to go with the Galaxy S6 is greater, in our opinion.

First of all, lets talk pricing. Samsung recently confirmed that its much-anticipated Galaxy S6 starts at £599 for the 32GB capacity. What’s interesting is that Samsung hasn’t yet released the pricing for its 64 & 128GB models. How much will they be? With the Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB priced at £760, we can’t help but wonder.

HTC One M9 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Pricing, though, favors the HTC One M9 whatever route you decide to go with – whether it’s with a contract or buying outright. Here in the US, the M9 will more than likely require you to dish out $200 with a 2-year contract, which is the usual price attached to most flagships. As for the Note 4, however, you’ll pay more at $300. Despite the $100 difference in price, it’s something we’d happily pay for because the Note 4 is such an incredible smartphone packed with solid performances and rich features.

This was a shootout between four phones, but the real question is whether the Samsung Galaxy S6 has improved over its 2014 predecessors. A full year divides the Galaxy S5 and S6 and between them there was distinct improvement.

Samsung's System LSI business had a rough two years as their decision to go with ARM's big.LITTLE SoC architecture cost them a lot of market share, thanks in part to immature software and implementation issues.

There's barely a whisker in it, but the Galaxy Note 4 trumped the Nexus 6 in four out of seven categories. Google's latest smartphone would be an obvious choice for those after a stock Android 5.0 Lollipop experience, but we found the Galaxy Note 4 more manageable owing to its smaller screen size and dimensions. It also came out top when it comes to battery life and storage, offering the option to expand the 32GB internal memory via microSD.

The very best Galaxy Note so far by a huge margin, never has the expression ‘slab of hi-tech’ been so relevant – the Note 4 fits almost every smartphone feature and bullet point you can think of into the one premium frame. That it’s also one of the most ‘reassuringly expensive’ (as the Stella Artois ads used to say) phones you can buy is… expected.

Samsung has pretty much covered all bases with the Galaxy Note 4, making it a true flagship device. The only flagship feature missing would be the water and dust resistance that was seen on the Galaxy S5, but then the advantages offered by the Note 4 far outweigh the omission of the IP67 certification. Android Lollipop is another feature one would expect from the Note 4, but that should come out anytime next year.

If those conditions don't apply to you, I'd recommend the Nexus 6. From its design and ergonomics to its user interface, speakers, performance, and button setup, it's just generally the nicer and more pleasant-to-use device. It does lack the ability to view multiple apps on screen at the same time -- which is a bummer -- but the phone's overall user experience is so much stronger that for the typical consumer, I think it'll be the preferable option. (Not to mention that it's less expensive, which is a nice side perk.)

Now that we've explored the anatomy of the Note Edge and the device it's based on – the Note 4 – in parts, we can finally claim to have something approaching a holistic view of the matter. Unfortunately for the nevertheless appealing Note Edge, when the smoke clears, the Note 4 proves to be the better bet – it's got the more ergonomic body and a noticeably-better battery life. And yes, at $299.99 with a 2-year contract, it's also $100 cheaper than the extravagant Edge (and savings are even bigger when paying full retail).

It's hard to find much drawbacks with the Turbo and the Note 4, but if we have to go for something, it will be the design. Both are relatively crude-looking and handling, but while Samsung's phablet has a much larger screen, it weighs the same as the Turbo, and is much thinner. Motorola used innovative design materials such as balistic nylon and Kevlar, though, so we'd call it a draw in the looks department. When you consider that the Turbo is more comfortable to handle with one hand, the ergonomics scales tip in its favor, though.

Samsung has broken its long-held tradition of producing cheap-looking plastic phones and has managed to make its latest Note flagship look rather refined. With all its competitors moving to metal bodies, it couldn't have done anything else. Compared to its predecessors, this phone radiates power.

Having won four rounds to the Galaxy Note 4's three, the Apple iPhone 6 is the current top dog in the enterprise smartphone space. Offering superior security, more storage options and an elegant yet robust design the iPhone 6 is one of the best smartphones ever released. However, featuring a wealth of productivity-focused software additions, superior camera and stellar battery life, the Galaxy Note 4 remains an excellent choice for any one seeking an alternative to Apple devices.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Huawei Ascend Mate7
Source: Phone Arena English
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Huawei Ascend Mate7 are two of the best options on the market right now, if you’re looking for a smartphone with a large screen. With this in mind, the 6-inch Mate7 may be a bit too steep of a form factor for some, with its wide screen that is harder to operate with one hand, so before looking into the specs, we do recommend you considering the size difference with these two.

We really like the Nexus 6, but on paper the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 beats it in every category here. Unless Google comes in with a really good price for the Nexus 6, for now it's difficult to recommend over the Note 4.

Samsung has packed in more power, an even better display and a great camera making the Note 4 an excellent smartphone. This is the best phablet around, hands down. If you're already rocking the Galaxy Note 3 there's not a huge point in upgrading, unless you really want the screen and chassis bump, but if you're rocking an older phablet or considering picking one up the Galaxy Note 4 should be top of your list.

The Galaxy Note 4 is so much more advanced than other phablets that it's almost in its own league. Yes, the quad-HD screen is gorgeous, but I'm more impressed by what you can do on this canvas. The improved S Pen and Multi Window features made me more productive, and the 16-MP camera beat the iPhone 6 Plus in a number of shots.

For pure innovation alone, the Note 4 is one of the standout phones of the year. It might not be the best-looking handset but it's getting there, and it largely delivers where it matters. It's powerful, the screen is gorgeous, there's a great camera and the battery life is massive. If you like using a stylus, then it's the best one you can find on a phone, although we'd like to see Samsung do a little more to help find those S Pen-friendly apps. Even if you don't care for the stylus, the Note 4 is Samsung's best big phone yet, and continues to stay on top of the phablet category it created.

The Note 4 isn’t better than most smartphones because it’s big. But it is better at being big. It may be a little overpacked with features, but enough of them make proper use of the extra screen real estate to ensure this is a device that you use differently to a ‘normal’ phone - and isn’t that the point of phablet?

The Galaxy Note 4 is Samsung back on top form. They’ve nailed the basics - solid design, gorgeous screen, satisfying battery life - and topped them off with a seriously capable camera and tons of useful features. If you aren’t looking for a massive phone, then it goes without saying that the Note 4 isn’t for you. For everyone else, as long as you’ve got the cash to spare (the Note 4 is over £600 here in Blighty), this is one of the best premium phones out right now.

If we take size out of the equation, though, the Note 4 has a clearly pronounced advantage: its brilliant Quad HD display is a beauty to behold with its accuracte colors, while the screen on the M8 does not look bad, but lacks that color fidelity, then, the Snapdragon 805 system chip on the Note 4 is an improvement over the 801 on the M8, and finally, the 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera is among the best smartphone shooters out there, while the M8's UltraPixel camera is not all that capable. Where M8 still comes up is the stylish unibody aluminum body, but hardware-wise it is just not as impressive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: Premium design finally matches industry-leading specifications
Source: Zdnet.com English
The Note 4 looks much like the Note 3 and Galaxy S5 so there is nothing earth-shattering about the form factor and layout. You will find the physical home button centered below the display, with the fingerprint scanner that I can only get to work when programming it and never again, the camera and flash centered on the back with the questionable heart rate monitor, the typical Samsung power button on the right, and both the headset jack and IR port on the top.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review
Source: BGR English
As a phablet, the Galaxy Note 4 is the best in the business, all things considered. Yes, that means it’s an even better phablet than the iPhone 6 Plus, though the 6 Plus is still a better all-around device thanks to iOS and the surrounding app ecosystem. The Note 4 was designed to be as usable as possible for a device with such a large display, with great weight distribution and a thin housing. The phone also has the best display in the business without compromising battery life.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note 4 isn't the kind of upgrade that screams at you from the showroom floor, flashing its new features like an air traffic controller. But it's a much better upgrade: the kind that reveals itself more the longer you spend with it. For a company once synonymous with plastic, glitz and bloat, this is a huge step in the right direction.

Is Samsung's latest Galaxy Note the best large smartphone out there?

For now, I'd say this: If you're already sold on Samsung's approach to mobile devices or love the idea of having a stylus, the Note 4 is a fine plus-sized option that's bound to meet your needs. If you don't fall into either of those categories, though, it might be worth waiting a few weeks to see what other options arrive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Nokia Lumia 1520
Source: Phone Arena English
Well, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is still a fantastic thing to think about, especially in the Windows Phone camp. Its biggest strength now, aside from its great camera, is the low cost that’s attached to it – where you can find it for as low as free with a 2-year contract. Conversely, you’re going to pay a cool $300 to pick up the Note 4 on-contract, but the money invested in it shows whys it’s a premium thing from head-to-toe.

90% Galaxy Note 4 review: Samsung finally listens to its fans, and it pays off
Source: Greenbot English
But as I said in the beginning: it’s not merely the fact that Samsung debuted another phone-tablet hybrid device, it’s that it feels like the company is actually starting to listen to what its users want. The Google Apps are displayed front and center, Samsung’s apps are mostly opt-in, the chassis feels more premium than ever, and even Touchwiz is becoming less gaudy with every iteration. Maybe it’s because of Google’s iron-fisted demands that we’re starting to see this significant change, or maybe it’s just because Samsung will do anything to stay on top as long as it possibly can. Whatever the motivation, it’s working. This is Samsung's best phone ever, and one of the best phones of the year.

But therein lies part of the problem in the perennial power struggle between Apple and Samsung. Do you want a phone that can do it all as long as you're willing to put in the time to master every trick? If so, then get the Note 4. Do you want a big-screen phone that does just what you need, but does it with grace and unrivaled ease? Then go for the iPhone 6 Plus. The ceiling for Note users will be much higher, but the floor can drop out for the impatient or inexperienced; the iPhone occupies a safer middle ground.

The Galaxy Note 4 is quite possibly one of the best smartphones Samsung has ever concocted. It’s outfitted in a seriously stylish metal outfitting and faux-leather backing, features a Quad HD display for a high-resolution viewing experience, and comes bundled with the ever-so-useful S-Pen stylus. It’s also a bonafide replacement to carrying around a small-sized phone and mid-sized tablet with you when all you want is a better screen for reading and watching movies.

Indeed, the Note 4 has quite a bit going for it, granted that you're ready to stomach its chubbier profile. The Note 4's screen is not only much larger, but also proved to be the one that is better, more true-to-life (even if not by far), and its arsenal of extra features works well with it. The Note 4's camera is also more flexible, and image quality is right up there with the best – in fact, outdoor shots during the day ended up slightly better than the iPhone 6's. Its optical image stabilization mechanism also helps you record shake- and tremor-free footage. But perhaps the biggest advantage of Samsung's latest device is its far superior battery life – a very valid concern with most of us.

As much as we like the LG G3, we have to admit that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the better phone, at least for the most part. It isn't leading by a mile, but overall, we find it a step ahead of LG's flagship in almost every major aspect – from design and display quality to hardware and camera performance. Made of metal, curved glass, and textured plastic, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a sophisticated phone with lots of character. Simply put, it is an eye-catching phone. The G3 is not a bad-looking phone by any means, and its metallic design also does a good job at drawing attention. Besides, the G3 is slightly smaller and fits better in the palm.

So there you go - time to draw the line and see how the hot favorite for the phablet throne this season did. It was a wild ride, but as it turns out, summing it up is far easier than we expected. Let's start with the key findings from our review. The Galaxy Note 4 impressed us with its look and feel, and flexed some hardware muscle while at it. The 16MP OIS camera didn't disappoint either - to say the least. The battery life was pretty awesome too, while the user interface has been nicely polished and stripped off of a lot of clutter.

With Samsung being credited with the popularization of the phablet form factor, it comes as no surprise that most consumers expect these to be super functional pieces of hardware, filled to the brim with extras and perks. But that's actually synonymous with Samsung, not the phablet category, and that becomes apparent with the iPhone 6 Plus, which, despite its relatively empty bag of goodies, makes for an awesome phablet experience. But it's not as simple as just “pick the Note 4 if you want features; go for the 6 Plus if you want simplicity”, and it never was.

It's important to note, however, that all flagship smartphones are now very fast, and the chances of the average user being able to tell the difference between them is minimal.

When we were first shown the phone playing back a video on screen it was less the significant resolution and more the way the image "pops" from the screen that impressed - a feature derived from the 2.5D glass panel which, despite being flat in the hand, is ever so slightly curved within to deliver this effect. It's subtle, but unlike any phone we've seen before it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

Samsung’s flagship Note series features a curved screen. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge certainly catches the eye and gives an illusion of a borderless device. Users will no longer lose out on notifications due to the always-on function on the curved side of the screen. The frame design is kept similar to current standards at Samsung with the usual button configuration and faux leather back panel. The Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone is packed with a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory. You can add another 64 GB using a microSD.

The high-end specification coupled with the 5.6 inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display will certainly satisfy the most advanced users out there. Image taking capability is pretty good with the 16M+ Smart OIS rear camera with Fast AF and a secondary 3.7 MP front facing camera rated at f1.9. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is also equipped with Samsung's famous S Pen technology that allows seamless handwriting and promotes creativity. There is a plethora of new sensors on the smartphone with Hall Sensor, Finger Scanner, UV and HRM being some of the new ones added. Battery life is good with the 3000 mAh fast charging battery powering the device.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs Galaxy Note Edge comparison review: Which edge is best?
Source: PC Advisor English
Although the Galaxy S6 Edge has some better hardware than the Note Edge and a nicer design we don't think it's worth the large sum of money extra - perhaps when the price drops. Unless you're left handed, the Galaxy Note Edge does the feature better.

Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge certainly brings something new and unique to the table, even if we found that the novelty of the Edge display soon wears off when you realise its usefulness has its limits. It's a powerful smartphone with great specs, particularly when we're talking about that stunning Quad HD display.

At first, many thought of the edge display is a gimmick, but in reality, it’s more than just that. The edge panel gives users new ways to interact with the device, and to get work done in an easier, faster way. Think of it as your mini-dashboard with all the quick essentials ready to be accessed so that you don’t need to reach the main screen. The only issue we noticed is that left-handed users will find trouble to use the right-sided panel, if they plan to use the device for one handed operation.

Galaxy S6 edge vs. Galaxy Note Edge: A camera shootout

Samsung recognized a number of important areas where its 2014 flagship cameraphones didn't cut it. We're pleased with how the company has handled launching the camera - S Voice often goes unused and taking over its shortcut was a great idea, while optimizing the camera startup time was an even better one.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: A side swipe at smartphone design
Source: Reg Hardware English
Revolution or gimmick? The Edge is certainly more the former than the latter and kudos to Samsung for pushing a concept to production. Like the YotaPhone 2’s electronic ink rear panel, the Edge’s side screen is one of those ideas that makes you wonder why nobody has tried it before. From the shortcuts panel to improved controls for the camera and video player to turning your phone into a bedside clock radio, the side display has a decent range of uses and a shed-load of potential.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: The Galaxy Note 4 with a curved screen
Source: PC Advisor English
The Galaxy Note Edge is one of the most interesting smartphones around and while the edge screen is genuinely useful at times, it also remains a slight gimmick. Hardware is top notch and although we dislike the faux leather, build quality is good. The Note Edge is big and expensive so it might be worth waiting for the next generation before taking the plunge.

Many may view the Note Edge as a proof of concept, but it's a very impressive handset. Featuring all the perks of its sibling, the Galaxy Note 4, combined with a productivity-focused curved screen, the Note Edge offers great performance, display and rear camera. However, with prices starting at £700 the perks come at a premium. Add to this the average battery life and Google's previous-generation Kitkat OS, and the Note Edge falls just short of V3's hallowed five-star rating.

I spent a week with the Galaxy Note Edge, and now I hate curved phablets
Source: PC World English
The Galaxy Note Edge is merely an experiment. I understand why Samsung would put the device out in the wild, and it makes sense given the company’s penchant for “trying things out,” but this isn’t an experiment like the Gear VR. It’s a smartphone that you’re supposed to use throughout the day for everything. I would have rather Samsung put its efforts into trying out a subtle-y curved display like the upcoming LG G Flex 2, which I impressed me the minute I laid eyes on it at CES (mind you, I wasn’t a big fan of the first generation G Flex either). Hopefully we’ll see something like that from Samsung at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

All of this means you might want to think very carefully before spending an enormous amount of money on what is essentially a first-generation experimental product. The Galaxy Note Edge is undoubtedly one of the coolest-looking phones of its generation, and if that's the only thing that matters to you, then by all means, go ahead and buy it. If not, you can get pretty much all the same benefits and also save a ton of money by going with the woefully one-dimensional though still excellent Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung has made an incredibly ambitious phablet with the Galaxy Note Edge that offers a unique, if unessential secondary screen that handily works well at times. It’s a solid phone, and its software smarts give you plenty of useful options - but it’s just incredibly pricey and absolutely massive, which may put off a few users. If this is the future of phones though, Samsung’s leading the way.

Many key aspects of the Note Edge are the exact same as the Note 4. You get the same Snapdragon 805 SoC, which is a performance powerhouse that tops most of our benchmark charts. You get the same 16-megapixel optically-stabilized camera, which delivers excellent photo quality in most situations. You also get the fantastic S Pen, and a high quality, high density display.

In the end we give Samsung an ‘A’ for effort. It’s refreshing to see a phone that not only tries something new while pushing the technological limits of smartphones forward, but the Edge display still doesn’t feel like a must-have feature. As it stands, it is more novelty than game changer, but if you are set on the Note 4 and don’t mind spending the extra cash there is no reason not to consider the Note Edge.

Ultimately though, if you’re looking for an Android-based phablet with a unique extra, the Note Edge fits the bill very nicely (so long as you’re on AT&T, of course). For the majority, the Note 4 or Nexus 6 may make more sense. And if you’re fond of iOS, the iPhone 6 Plus is where its at.

The Note Edge is also reminiscent of the original Note from Samsung. When it launched, we collectively said “really, Samsung? Really?” in response to their big screen. Now, everyone is following suit (even Google!), and websites everywhere are considering the Note 4 for their year-end “device of the year” articles. The only question now is if you’re an early adopter. If you are, give the Note Edge a good, hard look when you want a new phone. I think you’ll be impressed by all the subtle, cool things it can do. I know I was.

This device will cost you between $399.99 and $429.99 with a two-year contract depending on the carrier you pick it up on. Since you're not necessarily going to pick this device up on-contract - that's the cool way to go these days - you'll be paying a cool $839.99 to $945.99 off-contract - or through payments, final cost in the end.

Probably not. The Note Edge is a strange phone to sum up. We loved the Note 4, but for all their similarities the Note Edge doesn’t deliver. We struggled to find a real use for the curved edge.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is certainly a spectacle that will turn heads, and while we still can't see it taking off as the next big thing in terms of volume sales, it's a mighty fine modification of the Galaxy Note 4.

This is clearly a device aimed at early adopters. If you want to sit on the bleeding edge of mobile technology, and money isn't an object, then ... bon appetit. Pricing aside, the Edge is one of the best smartphones you can buy – arguably the best. For everyone else, though, we recommend waiting until Samsung (perhaps) incorporates the Edge Display into the Galaxy Note 5, 6 or 7. Right now it's a cool concept that, for most shoppers, won't justify its markup over the also excellent Note 4.

80% Life on the edge: Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge reviewed
Source: Gadgetguy English
While it is something of a gimmick, we like the Note Edge, though we’re not really sure why. There’s really no reason to have a curved display like it in a phone, and in some instances, it makes using the phone downright difficult. For instance, you’ll have to re-learn how to hold the phone when in camera mode, as it’s kind of comfortable one way, and plain weird the other, as the screen slopes in such a way where it’s hard to hold. You may even get used to pressing the home button often to get away from Samsung’s impossible to switch off Flipboard homescreen, as it mercilessly sends you there if you swipe just barely away from the curve too far to the left.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review: Cutting-Edge Curve or Gimmick?
Source: Recode English
Samsung said the Edge screen isn’t a huge power drain, and battery life is comparable to the Galaxy Note 4. I didn’t run a formal battery test, but with moderate to heavy use, the Galaxy Note Edge provided enough power to last a full day. I got more mileage out of the Galaxy Note 4 (it lasted about a day and a half), but it also has a bigger battery.

High price pushes the Note Edge into a niche, but that was always where it belonged. Even if curved screens become common in 2015, this is the trailblazer. We’ve had a lot of fun using the Note Edge, with our only serious regret for the thing being that it just doesn’t last quite long enough off a charge to match-up with Samsung’s more ordinary phones. Should you buy it? Probably only if you’re determined to be first and most innovative in your gadget selection. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still admire its boundary bending ways.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Source: Phone Arena English
Still, overall, the Note Edge is a considerable upgrade over the Note 3 - it comes with a sharper, Quad HD screen, and while your eyes might not be able to tell much of the difference in terms of sharpness, they would appreciate the improved color accuracy. The OIS camera is also a nice step up on the Note Edge, as it captures some of the best shots we’ve seen from a smartphone and does so consistently, while the Note 3 is a bit less capable. Performance wise, the Note Edge has the faster chips, but the performance boost is very slight and most of the gains are offset by the higher-res display.

80% A proof of concept rather than a fully fledged device
Source: Techradar English
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a sign of things to come. There are several rumours pointing towards a similar curved screen set up on the Galaxy S6, but like the Galaxy Alpha testing out the firm's next metal frame, the Edge looks to be a proof of concept rather than a fully fledged device in its own right. The fact it sports near identical specs to the Note 4 shows Samsung was just keen on getting that second display working, and while it's done a commendable job in implementing the new technology, in its current form it's still a little half baked and overpriced.

Source: GSM Arena English
Some compromises had to be made as the Edge screen affects the grip and makes one-handed use in some cases impossible (the camera is especially tricky). It's safe to say that it's too early for Edge to spawn its own lineup like the Note did, the manufacturing isn't quite there and most users are not ready yet perhaps to commit the extra cash and trade off the proper grip for the additional usability offered by the Note Edge's curved screen.

Source: BGR English
The Galaxy Note Edge’s price tag will drop. It will likely drop fairly quickly following the phone’s launch, in fact. Even still, fresh new flagship smartphones for 2015 will be on the horizon by then, and the Note Edge still won’t be a smart buy. Samsung’s curved displays finally have a reason to exist thanks to the Galaxy Note Edge, but unfortunately it’s not yet a good enough reason to buy a phone that includes one.

There you have it, almost all of the bad and the good concerning the first QHD monster that broke cover, the LG G3, and the ingenious and unorthodox S Pen-flaunting Samsung Galaxy Note Edge phablet. With its plastic/metal build and intriguing Edge display, S Pen stylus, and Snapdragon 805 in store, the Galaxy Note Edge will probably appeal to those who want to possess the latest and greatest available on the market. On the other hand, the LG G3 is a more “traditional” device, which employs a relatively compact form factor (considering the screen size), powerful hardware, and a set of features, such as Knock On/Knock Code, which make the device rather user-friendly.

Now that we've explored the anatomy of the Note Edge and the device it's based on – the Note 4 – in parts, we can finally claim to have something approaching a holistic view of the matter. Unfortunately for the nevertheless appealing Note Edge, when the smoke clears, the Note 4 proves to be the better bet – it's got the more ergonomic body and a noticeably-better battery life. And yes, at $299.99 with a 2-year contract, it's also $100 cheaper than the extravagant Edge (and savings are even bigger when paying full retail).

At the end of the day, both phablets will present consumers with cutting-edge performance and capabilities, but consumers will have to decide if they want to go the Samsung/Android way, or the Apple way. Each has clear advantages and disadvantages on the platform level, but if allow ourselves to focus exclusively on the devices at hand, we could say that they are both winners. One last detail we have to take into account is that the Galaxy Note Edge is a bit more expensive than the iPhone 6 Plus, as it's priced at $399 on a two-year contract, while the 6 Plus is $299 on a two-year contract. It looks like that forward-looking Edge display has a premium attached to it, but oh well, hopefully it won't be long before it goes through a little price adjustment.

It’s clear that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a niche, limited-edition phone that is a lot about showing off the futuristic-looking curved rim, and all the little things it can do.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920A

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920A flagship model is the next generation of the Note series with superb build quality, fully-fledged features and a matching price tag. Design is kept similar with slight tweaks including a new glossy back cover, which is more fingerprint prone. The bezel is beautifully curved with features taken from its rival company yet given a Samsung twist. With high priority given to multi-tasking and the famous S-pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920A certainly packs enough power and features to deliver a solid portable experience. The phablet featues a gorgeous 5.7 inch Super AMOLED panel with a whopping 518 ppi pixel density for uncompromising sharpness and contrast. The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop devices comes with an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor consisting of 2 quad-core Cortex processors clocked at 1.5 GHz and 2.5 GHz, respectively. There is a massive 4 GB RAM on-board, a Mali-T760MP8 GPU and an internal storage of either 32 GB or 64 GB. Cameras on the device are a 16 MP, optically stabilized, autofocus camera and a 5 MP front-facing shooter. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920A also comes with Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, USB host and a decent loudspeaker. The 3000 mAh battery is non-removable. However, the biggest disappointment might be the removal of the SD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy Note 5

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy Note 5! A lot of this comparison shows how the Note 7 is the definitely the phone to beat. Better on-board and expandable storage, a bigger battery, and the new features make the Note line feel fresh again. Or at the very least, it makes us feel the way the Note 5 failed to when it was first released.

Galaxy Note7 vs. S7 edge vs. Note5
Source: GSM Arena English
We doubt any of these tests will make a Note fan get the S7 edge, because if you love the S-Pen, nothing can replace it. We wanted to explore Samsung's flagship camera evolution over the past few devices and see what got better and what not. As it turned out Samsung just made a great camera even greater. The image quality is often on par across all three devices, but the processing algorithm is more sophisticated for brighter and sharper images. While there is an Auto HDR option on all devices, we're pleased to say that the Note7 hardly needs this mode. The dynamic range optimization Samsung has implemented does a great job of brightening up the shadows just when it's needed.

Maybe the biggest downside – and this is a huge matter of personal preference – is the lack of a flat-screen Note 7. We're sure that a fair number of established Note fans will be mourning the loss of their familiar display geometry, but there's just so much else the new Note does well that it's hard to imagine the majority of them holding a grudge for long; they'll poke around at the new Edge UX interface, learn to appreciate the phone's smooth curves, and likely begrudgingly admit that Samsung didn't ruin anything with this change.

Even on paper it's hard to pick a clear winner between the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 7. Both feature impressive internals, cameras and QHD screens. The Note 7 does win out when it comes to looks, storage and forward-thinking biometric security features. The improvements to the S Pen and addition of IP68 protection are also very welcome, but aren't essential in our eyes.

The Note 7 at first glance appears to be an expensive upgrade, but this may not bother you if you’re getting it on a contract - which will be possible, unlike with the Note 5. If you’re prepared to pay the money it’s a fantastic upgrade, with phenomenal performance, a fantastic dual-edge screen, a user-friendly stylus, a brand-new iris scanner and upgraded cameras.

Once upon a time there were few rivals for the Note 5's status of best big-screened smartphone on the market. That’s because, for a long time, It was the only game in town. Nowadays, screen-sizes of 5.5in and above are common on smartphones and there are loads handsets making a grab for the Note 5’s crown. The best of the bunch is Google’s 2015 flagship phone, the Nexus 6P.

So should you buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Dual? Well, as of today, the S7 twins have already been launched in India. The camera is also expected to be even better on the new models, making the Note 5 a tough sell. Moreover, the S7 twins also pack in Samsung’s dual hybrid SIM slots, giving them expandable memory and dual SIM capabilities.

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Galaxy Note 5! The Galaxy Note 5 is the older of the two smartphones, and is also understandably cheaper right now. There is absolutely no question if you are someone who will find the S-Pen to be very useful, but if that isn’t the case, what the Galaxy S7 Edge brings to the table is better battery life, a better camera, expandable storage, dust and water resistance, a more refined design, and of course, a more powerful processing package. If not for the S-Pen, the Galaxy S7 Edge is definitely the better option between the two, with it bringing upgrades over the Galaxy Note 5 in almost every department.

With all of this in mind, let's have a look at the prices. At $799 unlocked, the Galaxy S7 edge is certainly one expensive smartphone. Currently, the Galaxy Note 5 can be had for $600 unlocked, and considering this, the 5.7-incher beats the Galaxy S7 edge in terms of value for money. With the S-Pen's presence, it offers more functionality, and it doesn't fall short of the S7 edge in terms of hardware and camera features. Of course, if you still want Samsung's latest and greatest, there are carrier offers and upgrade plans to consider, so scoring a deal on it isn't impossible by any means.

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus price is rock steady for a simple reason - demand for it is just as steady. Apple is coming out of its shell a little bit, we get more RAM, ad blockers and higher resolution camera, which erodes the feature gap between iOS and Android. The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is sailing stormy seas - first Samsung delays the wide launch, then it runs into issues with the redesigned S Pen, all the while current Note users ask for their microSD slot back. The feature-packed era has come to a close though, it's all about the experience now, never mind the specs behind the curtain.

I hope Samsung focuses on implementing a faster fingerprint scanner, and different type of rear glass panel that doesn’t attract smudges for their next Note device.

At this stage, it's hard to score a phone that currently doesn't have a UK price, or indeed a solid UK release date. However, when the Note 5 has so much in common with the Galaxy S6 Edge+, which I think is much more comfortable and easy to hold, the Note 5 doesn’t immediately make me feel like I'm missing out on much. The S-Pen obviously makes it quite different from other smartphones on the market, but unless you're one of its rare devotees, then right now the S6 Edge+ is the much better option.

The 32GB version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 retails for Rs 53,900, which makes it better value compared to its curved-screen sibling. Plus, you get the useful stylus which will add more value to your life as compared to a curved screen. The Galaxy Note 5 is a very good iterative upgrade over previous Galaxy Note models, and if you're in the market for a phone with a stylus, this is your best bet. However, should you ditch your Note 4 for the Note 5? Certainly not. Samsung has made some very good improvements such as the stronger aluminium body, more powerful processor, improved S Pen features, but has also cut down on a couple of important ones along the way.

Thus, if you aren't already too invested in iOS or Android, just enter the store, grab the phones, and pick whichever you think looks better and fits your palm and pocket well – you can't go wrong with either one. If you have to switch sides, though, better stick with your current ecosystem, as neither one is that more enticing than the other to warrant the swap, unless you are really curious. Last but not least, don't forget that the $750 iPhone 6s Plus starts you off with 16 GB of storage only, while the basic 32 GB Note5 can now be had for $650 or even less, which can also tip the scales for you.

So, what do we think of the Galaxy Note 5? We’re very fond of just about every aspect of the Galaxy Note 5, from its curved and sleek design to its vibrant display and high-resolution camera.

The octal-core Exynos 7420 at the heart of the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 Edge+ isn’t brand new. It is the same SoC that powers the original Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, so we had a good idea as to how the Note5 and Edge+ would perform. Samsung did make some tweaks on the software side, however, and also added additional memory to these devices (4GB vs. 3GB), so the overall experience and general performance is somewhat better with these new, larger devices.

All things considered, for most users, deciding between the Galaxy Note5 and the LG G4 would be a classic decision of either splurging on a device that's more expensive and able to do more than they actually need, or paying less for a device that seems to be less pretentious, but about as versatile in almost all cases. Whether the Note5 is worth the price premium is up to your individual tastes, needs, and financial situation, which is why we can't straight up recommend it as a better purchase than the LG G4. But if pure technological enthusiasm, or the need for stylus-driven mobile productivity are the motivating forces in your decision-making process, you will end up happier with the Note5.

Source: Computerworld.com English
As I mused in a blog earlier this week, it really feels like the Note 5 is the true Samsung flagship of the year -- not just a bigger model of the Galaxy S6, but a more refined and complete version of the phone. It has all of the same high points as its smaller sibling -- the striking design and build quality, the awesome screen, the exceptional camera -- and it also introduces a more ergonomic curved-back design and a major improvement to battery life. And we can't forget about the stylus, which could range from being a massive positive to being an interesting little bonus, depending on your perspective.

90% Samsung’s best phone yet: the Galaxy Note 5 reviewed
Source: Gadgetguy English
Even with the pointlessly low storage number, Samsung’s 2015 Note 5 phablet is easily the best phone the company has produced this year, as it just makes this long-running device perfect, except for that lack of space inside. It’s probably the best phone Samsung has ever made. It’s definitely the best phablet you can buy today.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Google Nexus 6
Source: Phone Arena English
However, if one considers price, this difference is indeed reflected in the cost. The Google Nexus 6 has the advantage of having been on the market for nearly a year now, and this has brought a significant price drop: from an initial MSRP of $650, the phone is now officially sold for $500 (full retail price). The Samsung Galaxy Note5 looks like a costly device in comparison: it comes with an MSRP of $750, exactly 50% higher price than the Nexus 6. Put in simple terms, the Galaxy Note5 is clearly the superior phone in most aspects. But is a 50% difference in price justified? It’s up to your wallet to give a judgment about that.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
Source: Phone Arena English
Rather than going into detail about their pricing, we’ll just generalize it by saying that the Galaxy S6 edge+ carries a higher premium than the Note5. There might not be a huge disparity when breaking down their pricing on a fixed, monthly financing plan, but it’s undeniably profound when we look at their outright costs. In fact, the Galaxy S6 edge+, depending on which carrier you buy it from, is normally accompanied with an $80 increase over the Note5. Again, it’ll be different for each carrier, but that’s the cost we’re roughly looking at here.

91% Galaxy Note 5 review: a different breed of tablet killer
Source: Pocketnow English
Fortunately for Samsung, it turns out that “a big Galaxy S6 with an S Pen” is also a pretty fantastic smartphone. The Galaxy Note 5 is a premium-built handheld with a jaw-dropping display, one of the best cameras available on a smartphone, and a stylus that finally brings enough real-world usefulness to make regular people notice. This is a product for a certain subset of those regular people, folks who don’t mind spending more money if it means a better experience … and the Note 5 delivers one of the best smartphone experiences out there. If you’re in the market for multiple devices and you’ve got a little room in your budget, ditch your plans to get a separate tablet and smartphone and get this instead.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: Head of its class
Source: Gizmag English
The consensus from other reviewers will likely be "wait to see what Apple has in store before buying the Galaxy Note 5." And if you're torn 50/50 between Apple's and Samsung's products, then that's great advice. But if you already liked older Galaxy Notes, then we don't see any reason to hesitate about this one. The Note 4 was one of our favorite smartphones of 2014, and the Note 5 just jumped to the top of our 2015 list.

Samsung has another world-class performer in the Note 5, and unlike its cousin, the S6 Edge+, it has more going for it than just looks. The Note still can't completely mimic the feel of pen and paper, but it's getting closer than you might expect. Throw in some high-powered internals and a tremendous screen and you've got a Note that refines the phablet formula in almost all the right ways.

When I heard the initial specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, I derisively dubbed it the Note 4.5. I thought Samsung hadn't gone far enough with upgrades and new features. However, I quickly became a convert as I lovingly caressed the smooth glass, and live-streamed video of my dog.

Although members of the one and the same product family, the two phablets are both extremely similar and noticeably different from each other simultaneously. While the Note 4 can be safely viewed as one of the most feature-rich phones Samsung has made to date, the Note5 is going down a different, more design-oriented path. With “form over function” kicking in inside Samsung's camp, the Note 4 could be regarded as the last great dinosaur of a dying era.

Good news is, if you're of the stylus mindset then the S Pen delivers more on the Note 5 than in any prior generation. The tweaks are, in and of themselves, fairly small, but they add up to a much more usable experience that - with features like PDF annotation - address legitimate and common complaints among power users. The great camera, solid battery life, and incredible display only gild the Note 5's core talents.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 is the best looking iteration of the phablet to date. In line with the Samsung Galaxy Note tradition, the latest generation is also the most powerful phablet available today by quite a margin.

The reason I have always liked the Galaxy Note series of phones more than most other phablets is simple: Notes are gigantic, but there’s a reason for their size. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 isn’t just big for the sake of being big, it includes a wide range of features that put its size to good use.

We’ve dissected every part of the Samsung Galaxy Note5, and not surprisingly, it’s still an incredibly advanced device that’s untested in the phablet space. Performance alone proves that it’s every bit capable of tangling with the other handful of heavy handed phones that have been announced so far for the upcoming holiday season. From a specs sheet aspect, the Note5 has all the internals to make it a formidable thing to choose over the competition – more so when its S Pen features add to the overall experience; you don’t get that on other phones.

It's funny saying that a Note device is the more conventional option considering Samsung almost single-handedly created the phablet category with the first one, but in direct comparison that's how it racks up. And that's most likely why the UK market will get a staggered release approach.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has one fatal flaw: it won't be coming to the UK, at least, not any time soon. That seems to be a damning indictment on the way the British public views the slightly confusing S Pen, and would rather have the large simplicity of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ if they're going to spend a huge wedge of cash on a phablet.

I used to think of the Galaxy Note as “the” pen-enabled, large-display, large-battery capacity phone. The Note 5 design is very neat, but it did remove the large-battery capacity of the equation. That said, the Note 5 is easily the best large-display phone on the market, and certainly the best large-display Android phone. The excellent pen user experience is really a bonus on top of that.

When we said Samsung rushed the launch of the Galaxy Note5, you may have thought it was somehow unfinished. It certainly doesn't appear to be so at this point, instead it's the carefully thought out upgrade we're used to seeing from Samsung. Sure, it has lost a few of its productivity features, and we'll be hearing a lot about its battery. The comments section was barely beginning to accept that it won't be user-replaceable, as the rumored 4,100mAh capacity was enough to shake battery anxiety away. The actual capacity is nowhere nearly as impressive and the 3,000mAh number is less than even the Note II.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a flagship smartphone announced by Samsung in August 2016. It is actually the sixth generation of the Galaxy Note series but was pushed by Samsung as the Galaxy Note 7 to align the models of their Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. The International version of the Note 7 has the latest Exynos 8890 Octa chipset, which features an octa core (4 x 2.3 GHz Mongoose & 4 x 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU paired with a Mali-T880 MP12 GPU.

The Samsung Note 7 is one of the first device to be shipped with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and it covers most of the body. The Note 7 has a symmetrical body – the curve on the front is more or less the same as the curve on the back and the metal to glass transition is perfectly done to give the phone the perfect unibody look. The Note 7 measures at 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm (6.04 x 2.91 x 0.31 in) and weighs at 169 g (5.96 oz).

Apple’s take on the big phone Future of Computing was seen as a revelation for millions of iPhone users, but it didn’t feel like a full commitment to the big phone concept. It’s just a bigger iPhone, with the same hardware design and software experience. The same can be said of the Nexus 6P and many other big Android phones, which aren’t markedly different than smaller options. The Note 7, however, leverages Samsung’s years of expertise building big phones, and its hardware design and software features lift it up above the fray. It’s the least compromised big phone you can buy, and it doesn’t force you give up anything that makes big phones so great.

There's no denying the Note 7 is a brilliant phone. It's fast, has an incredible battery life, the camera is excellent, and the new S Pen gives it that special extra something to set it apart from everything else. However, that excellence does come at significant cost. Contracts start from at least £50 per month if you don't want to pay anything upfront. That could drop to £38 per month if you're willing to pay £150 upfront with Three, for example (bear in mind you get £50 back in the form of an Amazon gift card), but that's still a sizable sum of money.

In the past, the Note series distinguished itself from the Galaxy S series by being much larger and more powerful. This year, with the 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge, many speculated that Samsung would go even bigger and more powerful than the Note has ever been. But they didn’t. Instead of focusing on going faster, they focused on being better — building a better phone. In the past, it was probably a good idea to simply cram more power into a phone to make it better, but now as we near the apex of smartphone development, that’s no longer the case.

I need some more time with the Galaxy Note 7, but my first impressions from the few days I've had it now are nothing but good. There are some smaller downsides - such as being scared of my screen getting scratched, or scuff marks on the body - but other than that, it's a great phone. There were times when TouchWiz felt slow and laggy, but these events were few and far between for me. Once I had switched TouchWiz for the custom Nova Launcher, most of those lagging issues disappeared.

The Galaxy Note 7 is a win for Samsung and a win for consumers. It is the world’s best smartphone.

The reality, however, is that neither of these phones has proper waterproofing (the Moto Z is water resistant but not proof) or things like an iris scanner or a stylus, or even fast wireless charging. There's just no single phone that combines all the features that the Samsung's flagship has managed to pile up. So we have no doubt that Samsung has a winner on its hands with the Galaxy Note7. Few devices manage to combine business and pleasure as completely as the Samsung Galaxy Note7 does. We do wonder, though, will it be gamers or business users that end up buying the most Note7s.

The Note7 gets almost everything right, but the cost remains a stumbling block. The $850 price tag is $150 more than the Note5 at launch. Even the 64GB Note5 variant (where available) was $100 less than the 64GB Note7. It's also priced more than $200 higher than the regular Galaxy S7 and more than $100 higher than the Galaxy S7 Edge. For the added money you get a larger screen, slightly better ergonomics, the S Pen, and the iris scanner. If money is no object and you really want one or more of those things, you should get the Note7. It's the best large phone you can get, but it's too expensive for most people.

Undoubtedly the best big-screen Android on sale today, the Note 7 does everything right. It has a beautiful display, great cameras and good battery; it also has a powerful processor, a good amount of (expandable) storage and waterproofing before we even get to its unique selling points. The stylus has always been a love/hate aspect of the Note range, but constant improvements mean the latest incarnation of S Pen is the best yet. Installing an iris scanner isn't the gimmick it first appears; it works quickly and simply, although we wonder what is wrong with using the fingerprint reader instead?

That the Note 7 is a remarkable phone won't come as a surprise to fans of the series. Time and again, this larger format device has found fame for all the right reasons. For 2016 the Note 7 no longer feels like the freakishly large phone the series once was: it's almost normal, a refreshed Samsung handset for those who didn't jump and get the Galaxy S7 edge when it launched earlier in the year.

Yes, in an ideal scenario in which money isn't an issue, this is the feature-packed phone that is a top-performer. It won't let you down in day-to-day use. However, if you don't see yourself using the S Pen after the one month honeymoon phase or can't handle a phone with a 5.7-inch display, then stick to the 5.5-inch S7 Edge or more hand-friendly 5.1-inch S7. They have the same bright, Super AMOLED displays, specs and camera that haven't been beat so far in 2016.

Galaxy Note7 vs. S7 edge vs. Note5

We doubt any of these tests will make a Note fan get the S7 edge, because if you love the S-Pen, nothing can replace it. We wanted to explore Samsung's flagship camera evolution over the past few devices and see what got better and what not. As it turned out Samsung just made a great camera even greater. The image quality is often on par across all three devices, but the processing algorithm is more sophisticated for brighter and sharper images. While there is an Auto HDR option on all devices, we're pleased to say that the Note7 hardly needs this mode. The dynamic range optimization Samsung has implemented does a great job of brightening up the shadows just when it's needed.

90% An S7 Edge on steroids
Source: Hardware Zone English
In the title of this review, I called the Note7 an S7 Edge on steroids, and that's really the best way to look at it. Now that you no longer have to choose between a stylus and a curved display, the Note7 is really just a beefed up version of the S7 Edge. It does everything the S7 Edge can do, and then adds a whole load of new stuff on top of it. Not everyone needs all of that extra functionality, and for most people, the S7 Edge is honestly more than enough. But if you're a power user, you're really appreciate what the Note7 is capable of.

If you want the best of the best, you absolutely should consider buying one, especially if you’re already thinking of paying £639 or around £40-per-month for a Galaxy S7 Edge. The Note improves on the Edge in a handful of important ways, and that makes it, by a gnat’s whisker, the best smartphone you can buy right now. If you’re going to spend a lot of money on your phone, why not get the best?

I started this review saying the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 wasn’t for everyone, and it really isn’t. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a truly fantastically complete phone. Galaxy S7 aside, there aren’t any other phones (iPhones very much included) that are this close to perfection. The screen is sublime, the camera makes me want to go out and take pictures and the engineering that must have gone in make a phone with a 5.7-inch display this good to hold is beyond impressive.

And, indeed, that effort permeates throughout the phone, where a number of different aspects have been either refined or straight up upgraded. The onboard storage and microSD card slots really speak to power users while the design will make this phone more accessible for many users who are even the slightest bit apprehensive toward larger displays. Even then, the display experience is growing to be more than just a conduit for showing off Android interfaces, and the S Pen is probably the most useful than it has ever been.

The Note 4 still has a lot going for it. It falls down slightly only in terms of design, camera, and storage. In respect of the latter, at least it can be augmented with microSD.

Maybe the biggest downside – and this is a huge matter of personal preference – is the lack of a flat-screen Note 7. We're sure that a fair number of established Note fans will be mourning the loss of their familiar display geometry, but there's just so much else the new Note does well that it's hard to imagine the majority of them holding a grudge for long; they'll poke around at the new Edge UX interface, learn to appreciate the phone's smooth curves, and likely begrudgingly admit that Samsung didn't ruin anything with this change.

This is not just any smartphone. We boldly say it is the most feature-packed experience that money can buy, and it would not be fair to sum it all up in a 12-minute video or 2,700 words. As with every product, there is a small list of shortcomings. But even when you consider them, it’s really hard to compare this Samsung phablet against other smartphones. Sure, our round of comparisons will follow this review, but it’s hard to find another phone with this level of build quality, a camera that’s this great, and a set of software features that’s this complete. About the only thing we could say that would hold anyone back from buying one is the hefty price tag.

That doesn't mean it's for everyone, mind. Though the Note 7 may be smaller than the Note 5, it's still a big device; not everybody wants or needs a 5.7-inch screen.

Here’s the thing about the Galaxy Note series: It’s meant to be marketed as more than just another smartphone for your pocket. It’s supposed to be capable of doing almost everything a souped-up tablet or mid-range laptop could do so that you’re literally carrying around a tiny computer that you can work and play on. In some cases, the Note 7 might be too much technology for the casual consumer—in which case, they should consider the just barely-smaller Galaxy S7 Edge—but for power users, it’s simply stellar.

Samsung's always seemed a little confused about what options it wanted to offers shoppers in the phablet space: how large a handset, with or without a curved-edge display, and with or without the Note's S Pen stylus. It remains to be seen if we'll get anything like a Galaxy S7 edge+ (don't hold your breath), but at least with this year's lineup Samsung's simplifying the question: do you want smaller and touch-only, or slightly bigger and the stylus?

Overall, however, things are quite complicted. Design-wise, the Note 7 has more sensible dimensions and better one-handed experience. Both come off as exquisite, though the 6s Plus appers to be more considered, with cleaner lines and more symmetric look all-around. On the display front, if you're fortunate enough to get a Note 7 unit with a well-balanced display (we assume this means most units in the US, but we can't be fully certain), then things would be pretty much on par (provided you're using the Basic screen mode on the Note). In case you're not so lucky, however, and get a Note 7 with a display that is way off (such as one of the two Note 7 units we got; probably most international ones), then the iPhone 6s Plus will consistently deliver the better viewing experience.

Samsung says the Note 7 is for the overachievers and the multitaskers of the world, for people who want to do more, while on the go. And while that’s true to some extent, I don’t necessarily fully agree. More often than not, the Note 7’s own features stand in the way of efficiency. With so much going on all at the same time, the Note 7’s sheer ambition can quickly feel overwhelming. If you tend to thrive in chaos, and don’t mind tackling several tasks at once, this may be just the right smartphone for you. After all, it has most of the essentials right, and it’s extremely powerful and flexible. If you're regularly going as far as to edit spreadsheets, or draw, or watch full-length movies, or have two apps open side-by-side – the Note 7 is, without a doubt, a great choice.

Some say you shouldn't buy the first generation of anything - cars, TVs, gadgets - as the factories that make them are still warming up. The "facelift" version will probably iron out any issues that slipped by in Gen 1. The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is that facelift - it's a Galaxy S7, but with the rough edges sanded down, new ideas implemented. Not just that, it's the premium version too, adding features that the Galaxy S line will not see until the S8 comes along (the iris scanner and USB Type-C).

In conclusion, the Galaxy Note 7 is an amazing device that has many functions. Though the iris scanner does fall short in terms of expectations, one must give it the benefit of being based on technology still in its infancy. If there is anything about this device that is truly a disappointment it would be the battery capacity that could have done with more. Aside from this, there is little to complain about a device that does so much so well. And in the new Coral Blue color, the Note 7 looks even more beautiful and stunning.

You may be saying "that sort of read like a review to me, David." And in a sense, it is - just not a finished one. But I haven't had enough time to really focus and dig into the Note7 to come to a definitive verdict yet. There's a lot to like here - a recurring theme with Samsung's phones of late. But at well over $800 on most carriers here in the US, this is a whole lot of money for a phone that is, on paper, not particularly more advanced than the Galaxy S7 edge, a device that's getting cheaper all the time (and will only get cheaper yet around the holidays).

Samsung Galaxy Note7 hands-on
Source: GSM Arena English
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 experience hinges on the S Pen. Without it, you'd be tempted to just get the Galaxy S7 edge. That's hardly news to Samsung, the Note7 stylus has some amazing new tricks. Not all of them are as showy as writing underwater, but the Screen off memo sounds simple yet has the biggest potential to be useful. The new tools in the Air Command menu make the S Pen even more powerful.

Source: Computerworld.com English
There are a number of other additional features as well, including enhancements to the user interface and a simplification of Samsung's Android overlay. We'll be examining all these and more in our upcoming deep-dive review of the Galaxy Note7, once we've had a chance to do a real-life test of the device and find out whether Samsung's new flagship is as impressive in the long term as it seems at first glance.

An iterative phablet step forward
Source: Mobile Syrup English
In many ways, the Note 7 is little more than a larger S7 Edge, though given what a superlative device the S7 edge is, this isn’t a bad thing. Overall, the Note 7 is a visually impressive device and refinement of the Note 5 that includes all the best features from the S7. The Note 7 is set to sell in Canada for $1049.99 off contract and $549.99 on a two-year contract. So far we have been able to confirm that Bell, Telus and Koodo will release the Note 7 in Canada.

Déjà Vu

Another old component that Samsung used on the Note7 is the Exynos 8890 octa-core processor that’s also present in the Galaxy S7, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of UFS storage. The processor is still as fast as the last time we saw it, and while 4GB of RAM isn’t as impressive as the 6GB RAM that other flagships have it’s more than enough to ensure that the overall user experience on the Note7 is smooth and trouble-free.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 hands on
Source: What Hi-Fi English
It’ll always be the smarter, slightly geekier sibling in the Galaxy line-up – and that it’s proud of – but it’s now every bit as stylish as its peers too, adding yet another desirable phone to Samsung’s already impressive arsenal. We can’t wait to see how it fares in our full review.
