Engadget Review

AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy Note isn't the best in the world, but it's still very, very good.

http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2013/10/03/apple-samsung-sanctions-grewal/My opinion of Samsung has dropped significantly and is now just as evil as apple in my mind...I don't think i want to buy any more Samsung products.according to the articl linked above, Samsung is guilty of:-falsifying performance benchmarks of its flagship products: the Galaxy S4 and Note 3.-hiring people in several countries to post fake performance reviews and to falsely post reports of HTC phones "constantly crashing"-Set up price fixing schemes and consumer fraud to cause consumers to pay more than they should.-price fixed memory chip prices in collusion with 8 other firms.-Participating in a cartel that reduced output of lcd screens from 2001-2006 to essentially create another price fixing scheme by controlling scarcity.-destroyed evidence that could be used in the Apple lawsuit.-re-hired a convicted tax evader as a chairman.-bribed government officials and business leaders.

A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget

This is all about the size which in and of itself is a pro and a con. If you decide this size is right for you then you have to live with the not so good battery life.

Wifi reception is not very good, but 3G is Ok.The display is phenomenal, both in size (that's the reason why I bought it!) and in pixel resolution.Ignore the uninformed that depreciate its usability as a phone - there's nothing wrong with using it for calls, and it's light weight is a very good thing indeed.If you forget wifi + bluetooth connected when you don't need them, battery life will suffer.As for the rest, it's an Android phone, with the Android apps, nothing special there. It's fast, works well with everything you throw at it and, despite some comments may suggest, it is sturdy and the back cover does hold very well.Overall, I say: never ever make your eyes and fingers suffer stress again when using this as a smartphone or browser : it's screen will reward you with a pleasant experience, almost enough to leave the tablet home.
