Excellent after an iPhone 4,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Note 16GB Sim Free Smartphone - White (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Moved to this with some trepidation after a year of fairly trouble free iPhone 4 and apple iOS usage and having used Android a year ago.
First impressions: Android has really developed into a much slicker os. The google play app store matches Apple's though the adverts are annoying on free downloads. The ability to buy and download music from the Amazon MP3 store came as a pleasant surprise.
Now the device. The screen: wow. Its super amoled offering surpasses Apple's much vaunted retina display and its size is a joy. Colours are deep and rich; web browsing and YouTube playing are outstanding; the camera is brilliant and I love the fact that you can share straight to Facebook.
Battery life is better than the iPhone's - I'm getting a full day out of it with heavy use; the iPhone was charged at 3 pm every day from being fully charged in the morning (without wifi on etc). As a calling device, it beats an iPhone. Emails are so easy to read. Set up is a cinch too.
The phone stylus is useful. Definitely recommend.
And as for the pocket test, it is so thin and light that it feels unobtrusive at all times. I love it.
