phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 10 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Solid build quality
  • Stunning 'Super AMOLED' display with excellent rich, vibrant, deep-contrast colors, and high-resolution
  • Nice TouchWiz enhanced Android interface (optimized for the large screen)
  • Good Web Browser
  • Good camera (good color reproduction, great video recording)
  • Great device for watching videos or playing games, because of the large screen size
  • Great audio quality
  • Rich audio and video format support
  • Bundled stylus and software make for an excellent note taking experience
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Many people may find it too big for a phone - it's difficult to use with one hand, and can be cumbersome to handle like a normal phone
