Jonathan S. Geller writes about the new Samsung Galaxy Note, which is hilariously enormous, at Boy Genius Report:
This is a phone, after using it for a few hours, that feels like it is too big to be taken seriously. That’s the end of it. I don’t care if you like large screens on mobile devices, I don’t care if you love Android, and I don’t care if you love 4G LTE — this is a device fit for use only by such a small subset of the human population that I can’t fathom how AT&T and Samsung are putting so much marketing resources behind it. […]
The phone is too big. You will look stupid talking on it, people will laugh at you, and you’ll be unhappy if you buy it. I really can’t get around this, unfortunately, because Samsung pushed things way too far this time.
He ends with something I have touched on a couple times: “I’ve had it with all of these marketing gimmicks. Just focus on a quality product, and you won’t have to release eight ‘flagship’ models a year.”
Also, it has a stylus, because, why not? Definitely see also: 3.5 inches.
