Samsung, maker of all things electronic, will have their latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note, available on AT&T starting February 19th. The smartphone is an extension of their Galaxy line of smartphones that continue to be very popular among the Android crowd.
The company has had great success with Android and this phone is a bit different from the others. No, it doesn’t have any special features aside from the others. The big difference? A bigger battery to support the bigger screen.
Just how big of a screen are we talking? Oh, just 5.3 inches, a full inch bigger than the largest smartphones currently on the market. They wanted something that was more in between a phone and a tablet. Consumers can use the phone with a stylus and looks to be extra special for artists, though anyone who wants a great viewing experience when surfing the web or watching videos.
Being that it’s so large, some people will definitely want to check it out at an AT&T store first before purchasing. For someone who has big hands, it will fit great but for someone who has smaller hands, it may actually be too big. And yes, it will still fit in a pocket, but is definitely pushing it.
