Samsung Galaxy Note (AT&T) Review

The Samsung Galaxy Note offers robust pen capabilities and fast 4G LTE speeds, but this phone-tablet combo’s sheer size limits its appeal.

3 stars
(3 out of 5)

Is it a phone, or a tablet? Samsung says the Galaxy Note is a phone first, but it’s really a little bit of both. This mammoth 5.3-inch Android device straddles the two fastest-growing segments in consumer electronics, and as such, is designed to appeal to those who don’t want to carry both a handset and slate. With a built-in stylus, 720p display and 4G LTE speeds, the Note certainly has a lot of compelling features, but is it worth the $299 for this two-in-one device?
