When the smartphone market started filling up with tons and tons of new phones, people started standardizing the phones into different categories.
These categories often included the phone power, its battery life and screen size. At first, it was hard to imagine any smartphone coming up with a screen size of larger than 3.8 inches.
But then before we realized, phones with screen size of 5 inches started appearing. Samsung Galaxy Note was one of them and this phone is finally getting a LTE edition in the U.S. I have finally gotten my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE; let’s see how it does in the review.
The review unit I got came bundled with a wall charger, microUSB cable and a quick start guide. Design wise, the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE is pretty much the same as it was before.
It still is impossible to use with a single hand because of the huge screen size. With the stylus in your hand, it is highly recommended that if you decide to buy it, be ready to use the device using two hands. Other than that, the phone looks gorgeous as always, making it rival Samsung’s own Galaxy S II.
The few new changes you will get in the Samsung Galaxy Note LTE are that it now features a set of four capacitive buttons below the screen.
These buttons are sure to help you out when navigating throughout the interface of Android. Other than the new capacitive buttons, nothing really has changed with the phone.
You still get yourself a pair of cameras giving you 2 megapixels and 8 megapixels respectively and a set of ports that allow you to use the device on the PC.
You also get the same video out port that can be used with the help of the MHL adapter which can be bought from the market.
The Samsung Galaxy Note LTE only new attraction is its ability to connect on the new 4G LTE network. The phone is available on the AT&T network and usually gets easily connected to the network.
The downloadable speeds are also decent but be sure to check out with the carrier with the new 4G LTE network is available in your area.
