Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Note FE

88% Samsung Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) Review
Source: Phone Arena English
Samsung’s Galaxy Note Fan Edition is the right smartphone at the wrong time. It is too bad it is ostensibly little more than an exercise in recycling, and barely a month before the world would be introduced to its successor for good measure. Were it not for the need to ensure a smooth rollout of the new Galaxy S8 and S8+, it is not inconceivable to think that Samsung would have enjoyed a positive reception of the Note FE earlier in the year and with a wider market release.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
