My Samsung Galaxy Note experience
Having used the Samsung Galaxy Note for over 2 weeks, I can say that it is the most satisfying smartphone for me so far. Initially I have great reservation about its size. But I soon got used to it and now every other phones look tiny to me. The generous 5.3 inches screen, together with the pressure sensitive S-pen make this a really portable and productive device. Who would want to write or draw with finger when you can use a proper pen. At present it runs on Android Gingerbread. I can’t wait for Samsung to update it with Ice-cream Sandwich and the collection of S-Pen apps. I have also tested the 8 mp camera and have to say the image quality is surprisingly good.
I got the phone from Vodafone and am glad that its network is performing well for me so far. To top it off the Galaxy Note comes with the Navigon GPS software with ANZ/NZ updatable maps. Locking the GPS signal takes only a sec or two. Amazing.
For presentation to a roomful of people, I have bought the MHL cable which output HDMI from the USB port. However, some data projector may only have VGA interface. So I went to eBay and bought an HDMI-to-VGA adapter. Now I can connect my Galaxy Note to any data projector wherever I go.
All in all, I can highly recommend this phone to anyone reading this post.
