PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over the years, one thing has been very hard to grasp for some people: the fact that people want smartphones with 4.0"+ screens. These 'some people' seem to believe that because Apple chose a 3.5" display, any display size that isn't 3.5" is wrong. Keep that in mind when you read Samsung's latest little communiqué: the Korean giant has sold (not shipped, sold) more than 5 million Galaxy Notes. Which has a 5.3" screen.

I agree Note kind of sucks as a phone. (but that can be attributed more to Touchwiz than the form factor itself).
One handed use is seriously crippled as well. It could be fixed by UI layout reorg but apparently Samsung can't do that. The phone function is just there so that you don't have to carry a phone in addition.
But if calling is not your major thing it rules as a portable computing device.
It delivers full web experience (on par with tablets), the noting ability kind of grows on you with time, games and videos have simply no competition (in phone form factor), the camera is top notch as well (it's not Nokia 808 of course).
At the same time you still can have it around, always. That's something that can be said about tablets.
