This is a great phone, it's like having a tablet in your pocket!
This phone is an android interface so has all the standard android features, access to the android market to buy apps etc
Great having a built in stylus as stops you having to endure a greasy finger print screen which for me would be really annoying. The stylus boasts character recognition but this can be quite hard to utilise effectively.
With regards to its size, people always comment that it is too big for a mobile, however after having it for a week I got used to the size and other phones seem far too small. It fits in jean pockets and a handbag.
Because the size of the phone is bigger than other smartphones, the battery life is comparably better.
The headphones are passable but if you are an audiophile you may wish to invest in some additional ones to make the most of the impressive sound quality of the note.
The built in video player has a virtual 7.1 function which is extremely convincing. I have used it to watch films and television programmes.
Unless you have large hands, it is relatively difficult to use one handed. There is a half keyboard option which limits the keyboard to one side of the phone and this is beneficial.
I bought this phone through my contract with orange, side by side with other smartphones out at the moment it worked out slight cheaper ( £30 pm ), but well worth the money.
Internet is very fast, even with low reception. I would suggest donwloading the (free) app Chrome, it is very slick with Samsung.
I contemplated buying an iphone..and im glad i didnt! All of the app's apple charge through the nose for are free. The giant screen may be a talking point within your group of friends..but when you can watch full length films in great quality..who cares?!
Effortlessly smooth. Nothing is too much for this phone, I have various windows open at one time and it doesnt affect the running at all.
Camera quality is excellent. HD pictures can be stored easily.
Doesnt hold charge for long if you use it for streaming movies etc however this can be expected of a screen this size.
Sturdy, i have dropped mine endless times (woops), and not even a mark! Touch wood.. If you have a habit of putting your phone in your pocket, well..dont. Unless you have big pockets. Overall very modern design though.
