|Popularly known as the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Samsung Note SGH-I717 cell phone is a powerful part tablet, part smartphone. This smartphone has a built-in internal memory that is expandable by 32 GB and up to a total of 40 GB with the addition of external microSD memory cards. The Samsung Note runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, which operates on a GSM quad-band network, supporting 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz bands, as well as LTE, dual band 4 and 17 UTMS. It is capable of both 3G and 4G data transfer speeds.|
The bold and vivid 5.3-inch full touchscreen on the Samsung Note displays images, applications, and webpages in 1280x800-pixel resolution, and the HD super AMOLED screen resists bumps, nicks, and scratches, giving the device longer life.
The Samsung Note is also capable of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, as well as Bluetooth profiles, HID, and a Wi-Fi hotspot that allows phone users to share a data connection with up to five other users or devices.
For those who appreciate image capturing and sharing, the Samsung Note SGH-1717 cell phone is equipped with dual cameras, including an 8 MP rear-facing lens and a 2 MP front-facing lens with 4x optical zoom and autofocus. It also functions as a camcorder with high-definition DivX HD recording and playback.
This smartphone connects its owner with a multitude of entertainment, shopping, and social networking opportunities and presents all of them in an easy-to-access format. The Samsung Media Hub makes it simple to listen to music and watch movies and television shows from popular subscription services, such as Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, and Last.FM. There are several widgets on this smartphone that lead to popular social networking hubs like Facebook, Twitter, Photobucket, and Flickr. The Media Hub also includes a multi-function music player that can handle MP3 and MP4 music files as well as FM music channels, thanks to the built-in radio receiver. Downloads that are available from the Google Play collection include a plethora of games, widgets, and applications.
A distinctive feature of the Samsung Note SGH-I717 cell phone is its S Pen â€“ a pressure-sensitive stylus that mimics real pen and paper drawing, writing, notetaking, and sketching. This pen, along with its sensitive touchscreen, allows users to capture handwritten notes, shopping lists, and drawings made on the go, so that they can be saved for later and also edited and shared with colleagues, friends, and family over several social media platforms. The smartphone owner can also create virtual postcards with the Touchnote application and remove unwanted objects and people from photos with the TouchRetouch widget.
People who are interested in using the Samsung Note for business purposes will find a plethora of business and enterprise-ready applications, widgets, and programs pre-installed to enhance corporate communication and productivity. These include the Mobile Device Management (MDM) tool, which enables on-device encryption for sensitive information and documents. The Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync version 14 server lets users sync corporate email messages, calendar entries, and contacts with VPN servers so that all the information that would be available on a work computer can be accessed from the convenience of the Samsung Note smartphone. The pre-loaded Polaris Office productivity suite is exclusive to this smartphone model so that documents and presentations can be created on the go. In addition to Polaris Office, the Samsung Note can effectively run applications powered by Microsoft Office Suite, Google Documents, and Samsung SAFE.

I've bought this phone because my iPhone 3gs broke (a month after the warranty expired :/) and I wanted a replacement. I prefer phones with stylus and when I've seen this phone in an AT&T store I absolutely loved it.
I really love this cellphone because of its huge screen. I was considering buying a tablet, but I am too lazy to carry another piece of electronics around and that was what stopped me. Now it's not a problem because I take the cell phone with me anyway.
What I like about the phone:
- I can comfortably browse web with and read pdfs, so I don't have to carry my Mac Book Air with me that often.
- the stylus is inductive like in Wacom tablets and it is pressure sensitive, so I can draw if I am bored
- it easily integrates and synchronizes with my google account, including the calendar
- It is aware that I am a poor grad student and don't have an unlimited data plan. It logs in flawlessly into UCB wifi network (iPhone makes me re-type the password every time) and keeps track of how much data I have left in each months
- The phone can check with a global database of telemarketers and block them silently with a number of apps. No one wants me to buy a home protection system anymore.
- Compass and gps are way more accurate and fast than in my previous phone
- There are ad blockers for rooted phones, and they are effective
- It can stream music from websites like grooveshark
- You can replace the icons in the dock with whatever you like. And you can replace all the standard apps with whatever you like, too.
- You can install a theft-protection programs that survive the factory reser
- I can take hand-written notes with the pen and insert shots from camera in it really fast. I can take notes in the dark now (and it's a real blessing if you are taking data in an atomic physics lab :)). And it comes with a flashlight!
- It's a well pre-configured Linux computer! You can install busybox and shell and run bash scripts and execute all your favorite commands on it!
- its hardware supports t-mobile 3g network if you install tweaked drivers
- starting developing for it is really easy. I guess it is true for all Android phones.
What I dislike:
- You have to install an app like nudnik to make the reminders in calendar more persistent. Otherwise I just miss them entirely.
- The standard web browser misbehaves on web pages with viruses. For this reason I replaced it with chrome.
- Stylus positioning is off and there is no standard utility to adjust the position
- Huge screen drains the battery fast if you keep it on. Otherwise, is I charge it overnight and use it as usual I have 30-50% of charge left at night.
- I was sort of amused with google voice app when I tried to add a voice memo. Now it makes me wonder if my pronunciation is so bad or it is the speech recognition that is not working properly. It was able to give me correct directions to the airport though.
- web, chrome, dolphine don't display Tektronix web interface correctly. I had to install firefox to access it.
- I don't trust it with the sensitive data. Who knows what the previous owner pre-installed on it.
I see lots of reviews on this device, but some of you haven't even owned it! Try it for a couple months (seriously) and then you can place an honest review! I think it is a great device, but experience it first before placing up a review.
The GT-N7000 is an excellent device with a few flaws. Yes the battery is 2500 mAh, however the screen and data (wifi/3G) can easily eat up that battery if you do not have some type of battery saving software or adjust your power usage in the settings menu. Choosing the wrong apps can also eat up your battery. You can remedy this by getting a 2600 mAh battery off of eBay, and swapping them out when the battery gets low. Someone mentioned that this phone uses 4G? Not the case out here in the states. 3G is the best the GT-N7000 can produce, although the U.S. Version DOES support 4G. If you want the faster data, go with the AT&T version. Also, be ready to program your GT-N7000 when you get it because you will find you cannot send MMS (Picture text) and other things without placing the proper input for the phone. YouTube has videos on how to correct this problem.
I'm not sure if I receive a defective product, but just a month after owning the device it would no longer hold a charge. My SGN had the following text:
"CHARGING PAUSED. TEMPERATURE IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW."
After seeing this text, the phone would not hold a charge. I tried unplugging and replugging it, taking out the battery, and then I did a factory reset on it. Same message popped up. My phone was stock, never rooted or flashed, and only a MONTH old! The next day, the battery was COMPLETELY dead. Sadly, I returned the SGN but am getting a replacement soon. I will give it one more shot because I honestly enjoyed the item.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Note (SGN) because it is a tablet of just the right size with a PERFECT screen, it affords stylus interaction that is as good as an art digitizer, and it is a mobile device into which I can put my SIM card. The SGN is a complete communication and PDA tool.
I paid a fair price for the SGN on eBay (late 2011). It was dear, but I insist on buying unlocked mobile devices. Carriers do not treat customers fairly.
There is no other device on the market (late 2011) like the SGN. The 5"x3" AMOLED screen is stunningly good. Writing and drawing (in *colour*) with the stylus is easy. The Android Market offers abundant possibilities, browsing the Web is fast (and finding WiFi is easy), and Android's multitasking makes the SGN a pleasure to use.
I find the "Swype" writing application to be the most effective way of entering text. T9 (predictive text) is adequate; pen input is very good, although one must make an effort to write clearly. On the whole, Swype is the most productive for a chap like me whose handwriting has grown ugly in the Age Of The Keyboard.
= The "S Stylus" does not have a replaceable tip.
= The battery should be charged daily if one is using WiFi (and it's hard to resist using WiFi with such a beautiful screen).
= Android's Voice Control works, but is limited and the synthetic voice is not sonorous.
= At the time of writing (late 2011), it is difficult to find an adequate protective case for the SGN.
Samsung has produced a beautiful tablet with cellular capability. Nothing on the market comes close to the beauty and ease of use of the Galaxy Note.
This has been by far and away the best phone I have ever owned.I have used all of the Palm Treo phones, Palm Centro, Palm Pre series and the Samsung Galaxy S II.
I have greatly enjoyed the over sized screen which for older eyes is fantastic. Because of the larger size I find that I do not use my tablet nearly as much as I used to.The multiple features and the downloadable apps for this android phone makes it a business workhorse.It also provides for a great deal of pleasure usage through games, camera and video and various movie apps. Google music is a wonderful program which works well with the Bluetooth connection in my automobile and allows me access to nearly 20,000 songs from my collection.
I have had no issues with battery life. In fact, even on my heaviest usage days I have battery left before I retire at midnight.I purchased a spare battery and battery charger in anticipation of poor battery life but never use it.
I very easily becomyme accustomed to the larger size. Any other phone now looks puny. It also is a nice conversation starter as everyone who sees the phone asks me about it.
Unlike some of my prior phones, I have never had a reset issue. I have overa hundred programs that I'm currently using.
I have had an issue with the built-in calendar program, however this is just a matter of preference. I have gone to a third-party calendar which works better for me. I much appreciate the fact that I can download different fonts with different sizes. My Amazon Kindle works flawlessly. I find that I prefer to use the Galaxy Note more than I do my Kindle for my reading.
I've had nothing but impressive experiences with this phone and continue to learn more each day about its functions. I highly recommend the Galaxy Note!
this phone is excellent! I waited for a few weeks before writing this review. it has great picture quality. galaxy S and S2 also has the nice picture quality and screen quality. pictures are vibrant around 16.7million colors. 8megapixel camera is great! i also like the 1080p HD camera capabilities. Iphone 4s has these also but i like the screen on the NOTE much better. the flashlight that is already on the phone is very bright. the brightest i've seen. it has quite a bit of apps that you can download. I am on a Tmobile basic plan so i dont have data plan. i use WIFI and that works excellent. the only downside is that when you switch off the "packet data" (so you dont incur additional charges) you lose your MMS capabilities. you would think with how smart this phone is that it should work fine like the older dumber phones. i will be calling Tmobile later on to see if they can do anything about that, since Samsung has no solution. the S PEN is amazing. i have almost 10 different apps for the S pen to draw and what not. i like it a lot. after a few weeks im still learning new things with this phone. that is the other drawback (at first but not really an issue) when you first get the phone the battery doesnt last that long since you are constantly messing with it and trying to learn it. the battery lasted all day, from 10am till 4am. thats fine since i plug it into the charger at night. now it lasts me about 2 days before i charge it. after using this phone i went back to use my blackberry, iphone 4s, galaxy s, and a few others and i could not bare it. i almost had to squint and bring the phones close to my face. probably just because i am use to the big screen. i also get a lot of comments like "THAT PHONE'S TOO BIG!" my reply is "DO PEOPLE WHO BUY SUVs and TRUCKS COMPLAIN ABOUT IT BEING TOO BIG?"(i also say "thats what she said" LOL) i dont think the phone is TOO big at all, its big but nice, still fits in my pocket.
great picture quality,
vibrant screen and good colors,
8 megapixel camera,
1080p HD video,
large 5.3in screen,
alot of APPS,
16GB and supports up to 32GB SD so thats 48GB total,
gorilla glass (search youtube to see what happens when you drop an Iphone and a Galaxy S2 with gorilla glass. big difference),
and it easily upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwhich OS android 4.0,
edit photos on the phone,
Polaris Office is just like Microsoft office with spreadsheet etc.,
customize your home screens,
MMS doesnt work (without a data plan),
Battery life a bit short (only when you first get it because of overuse),
would be better to have metal case/trim like iphone though it may add more weight.,
UPDATE: I have now used the NOTE for a few months now and it is still great!!!! I put a 16GB SD card in there so i have a total of 32GB of storage! how much would a 32GB iphone 4s cost??? quite a bit more. also with the battery it is lasting longer now than when i first got it since i figured out how to kill the apps im not using, more often u kill the apps the longer the battery life. i also took a closer look at the 4s specs compared to the note since everyone in my GF's family uses the 4s and found out that the NOTE outperforms the 4s in every area except the screens PPI(pixels per inch). the 4s has 40 more ppi than the note but the note has higher resolution. great phone, great tablet!!!! love drawing on this thing!
