Samsung Galaxy Note Pros And Cons Review

The Samsung Galaxy Note has critical pros and cons that you need to know. The following analysis of its specs pinpoints which good points there are to love about it and which not-so-good points there are to think about.

Cons (or Not-so-great Features):

Ostensibly no HDMI connector:

It's all well and good that the Samsung Galaxy Note can record high-resolution 1920 x 1080 videos, but we were disappointed not to find any evidence of the Galaxy Note featuring an HDMI port (which is convenient to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV.)

The Galaxy Note weighs 178 grams. It's kind of chubbier-than-usual.

Chunky handset:

With its 178 grams of weight, the Samsung Galaxy Note might turn out on the heavy side.

Touch screen is only a capacitive:

A large touch screen is nice, but we are not extremely impressed that it is just a capacitive model. Of course, capacitive screens are okay, but according to Wikipedia and many other expert sources, resistive touch screens are much better.


Now, the Pros:

The Galaxy Note shines by its 0.16 w/Kg SAR rating, which is honorable.

Termendously low radiation level:

Its SAR rating (radiation level) is hardly 0.16 watts per kilogram of body mass (on a scale of 0 to 1.60!). Devices with a SAR rating lower than 0.35 are the exception.


It features a 4G wireless data technology.


The Samsung Galaxy Note features the Swype text entry system. Swype lets you enter text simply by gliding the keyboard with your finger over the right letters.

Very large display:

The screen is impressive: 5.3 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels means about 12.62 square inches and an image quality of at least 285.08 dots per inch (DPI)!

High-resolution (8-megapixel) camera:

It features an advanced built-in camera (8-megapixel) with the following options: Action shot, Beauty shot, Panorama shot, Smile shot.

Superior talk time:

If Samsung's claim is accurate, the Galaxy Note and its (2500 mAh) battery will allow 780 minutes of conversation, a lot of talk time!

Thin form factor:

Its 9.65 mm body makes it quite thinner than average for a bar phone.
