Review: Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T
Samsung shoots for the moon with its latest Galaxy phone, the Note for AT&T. This "super phone" offers one of the largest screens on the market, LTE 4G, and a stylus. Can the Note prove that bigger is better? Phone Scoop delivers its verdict.

The Samsung Galaxy Note — with its whopping 5.3-inch display — is neither a smartphone nor a tablet, insists Samsung. It is a Super Phone, a device that has all of the latest features of both in one package. It's so big, that you can ostensibly skip buying a tablet and let the Note be your all-in-one mobile computing device. That's assuming you can fit it in your pocket. The Note also brings back what Steve Jobs hoped to abolish: the stylus. Is this gigantic phone, with pen in tow, the answer to your I-only-want-to-carry-one-device prayers? Let me tell you.
AT&T revealed that it will sell Samsung's monstrously large Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet. With its 5.3-inch display, the Note defies categorization.

Successor to my Streak?
As for the size of 5"+ devices, you get used to it quickly, I can't imagine returning to a smaller device now. I'll grant you that this size is not for the small handed if you are a heavy phone user, though bluetooth solves that easily.
I, and most Streak owners, tend to use it in landscape orientation; a must for a screen this large. With the Thumb Keyboard app it is a joy to type on; often I will write email on it while sitting in front...
Don't break the screen though, it will cost you about 300$ to get it fixed lol
A cross between a phone and a tablet?
One of the Largest?
