"Size does not always matter, but it is nice to have"4.5 starson by jo_be_ric
Pros: Web surfing, reading mails, PDFs, watching videos, pictures, playing a new game or taking notes with the S-Pen, the phone is just amazing to use, and the battery lasts longer then expected, +2 days at normal usage
Cons: There is a bit of a lag when you use custom launchers, and if you wanna use the phone with one hand, you need to be a giant with enormous hands.
Summary: In the beginning, I really was thinking that 5,3 inch could be really too much to be useful. I had a Samsung Galaxy S2, and the screen is quite big, too. Compared to the Note, the screen is just a tiny thing. If you do not have money to buy the Note, do not use it, it is addictive. You will really miss Android on such a high resolution and display.
Till now, I did not regret buying this phone. The power it has for apps, games and videos is just amazing, but I need to mention that it sometimes has a bit of a thinking moment, when you hit an icon or wanna save a note you took, or just changing the wallpaper (what indeed takes 5 seconds).
The sound of the device is above average, nothing special, but still good. The tiny loudspeaker at the bottom end of the device is making some good noise, but do not expect to get an ear-gasm from listing to music with the small screamer. The sound with the headphones is nice, it has a good sound, some good bass and it is entertaining enough to use it as a MP3 and media player.
All in all, this device is one of the best phones I ever had, even of the size is enormous and the weight is quite high, but to be honest, this makes it feel quite valuable, not comparable to the plastic feel of a Galaxy S2.
