Samsung Galaxy Note Price in the Philippines, Features and Tech Specs: The Samsung Galaxy Note is a high-end Android device that can be considered as both a smartphone and a tablet computer. Having a 5-inch display, it reminds me of the original Dell Streak and the Acer Iconia Tab. However, the Galaxy Note is way better than those two mentioned, and we will tell you why later on. Through this device, Samsung aims to create a new niche market for people who want the combined features and functionality of tablet computer and smartphone in one package.
Equipped with a 1.4 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 SoC processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note is considered as one of the most powerful tablets/smartphones in the market. To top it off, it also uses a fast GPU and 1GB of RAM. These hardware specs allow the Galaxy Note to effortlessly run demanding games and applications and enable it to take care of multitasking flawlessly. It also means that the handheld is future-proofed for upcoming apps and Operating System (OS) updates that may require high spec’d hardware.
One of the best features of the Samsung Galaxy Note is its enormously gorgeous 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen that is capable of 1280×800-pixel (285 ppi) resolution. The display makes it possible for users to comfortably do things such as browsing some web pages or creating documents as if using a desktop or laptop computer. Although a lot bigger than your ordinary smartphone, the Galaxy Note is still considered as highly portable by those who have tried using the device. This is probably because of its slim profile and lightweight construction (178 grams).
True to its name, the Galaxy Note can be used like a traditional notepad or organizer. This is because of its ingenious stylus called the S Pen. The S Pen is conveniently tucked at the bottom portion of the device and can be readily used in a wide range of apps. Users can simply write on the screen and the Galaxy Note will convert hand writing to text, which could be handy when sending long SMS or emails. Of course, there will be other practical uses besides the one I’ve mentioned.
The Samsung Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it will be upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It includes Samsung’s very own user interface called TouchWiz UX. The slick UI is also used on Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
Like other high-end Android smartphones or tablets, the Note is loaded with built-in peripherals such as HD-ready cameras (8MP rear, 2MP front), Wi-Fi, removable storage, and Bluetooth among others. It also comes with the usual sensors like proximity and ambient light sensors, 3-axis gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, and barometer.
The Samsung Galaxy Note may not appeal to mass consumers, but all in all, it has all the right features or qualities that could make it a successful device in its own right.
