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.

If you played with it for only a half hour how did you determine the battery life was so terrible?

If you use the Note as a tablet it will last 8 hours, that's pretty good for a tablet. If you use it as a phone it can last for almost 3 days, that's pretty good for a phone. If you combine both uses there is no reason why you can't get a full working day out of it. I use it hard all day and yes when I get home the battery is at around 37% but I never been in a situation where it died on me. If that happens I'll buy another battery for 20 bucks and start carrying it around. My iPhone got only marginal better battery then my current Note. The biggest battery killer is LTE, when the new iPhone starts shipping with it your battery life will go to hell like the rest of the phones that have LTE.
