Samsung Galaxy Note



This handset has now been discontinued. You may be interested in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 instead.

Please be advised that Samsung have now placed region locks on all of their SIM FREE handsets.

Clove Technology only have access to the “European” models of new Samsung stock. The countries considered compatible with the device will be listed on the handset’s packaging. Currently this includes all members of the EEA and the following countries: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City. This is subject to change at any time without notice.

This means that any SIM card from a network provider in those listed countries will be compatible with this device. You will also be able to use these SIM cards whilst ‘roaming’ outside of the listed countries.

If you insert a SIM card from a provider that was produced and intended for use in a region outside of the listed countries, then you will be unable to use the device.

For example; If you travel to the USA, be it for business or pleasure, you can use your UK / EU issued SIM card and ‘roam’ on the US networks, but you can not substitute your EU SIM for a US SIM card in this mobile device.

Samsung Galaxy Note Overview

The Samsung Galaxy Note is the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone from Samsung. The classic stylus technology of the original PDA meets the cutting-edge features of the modern day smartphone to create a unique Android device. The Note features the largest display available in a smartphone and a specialised version of TouchWiz called S Pen. Let's take a look at the best reasons to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The massive 5.3" display of the Galaxy Note combines with the included 'Smart Pen' to offer an experience different to any other Android handset. Ideal for making notes on the go, the Galaxy Note includes a 'to do list' feature that combines with TouchWiz S Pen to offer superb organization options.

Samsung has been at the forefront recently in terms of smartphone display technology and the Galaxy Note is no exception. The HD Super AMOLED touch screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution and is extremely responsive to the touch of both finger and stylus. Measuring 5.3 inches across, the whopping display of the Note is great for work use, watching videos and browsing the web.

As well as its large display, the Samsung Galaxy Note also has a large internal memory to match. 16GB of onboard storage provides plenty of space to store music, videos and alike, but there's also the option to expand this by a further 32GB via the MicroSD slot. Of course, such a high-end device needs the firepower to match its feature set and the Galaxy Note easily achieves this with its 1.4GHz dual-core processor.

Besides its large screen, powerful processor, large memory and stylus capability, the Samsung Galaxy Note features the usual array of top of the range smartphone tech. There's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and quad-band 3G connectivity, as well as an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front facing camera. Samsung has also included GLONASS technology - a radio-based form of satellite navigation that complements the GPS system that is currently used.

    Samsung Galaxy Note is just perfect!
    Don't be afraid of its size. When you take it in your hands you'll definitely fall in love with it. As I did.
    The phone feels very thin and lite - like if you are holding an empty shell of the phone. It perfectly slips into pockets in my jeans and it feels comfortable to use, well, as a phone :)
    The screen is superb. The black is absolute - screen emmits no light when displaying black color. The sensivity is also great both with your fingers and S Pen. All android market apps that I installed had no problems with HD resolution of the screen - 3D looks just amazing.
    File manager, Music player, Video player (lots of formats are supported), Polaris Office (create and edit .doc, .docx, .xls, .xslx, .ppt, .pptx) - the phone comes just ready to use.
    Flip Cover is of a very good quality and fits perfectly.
    I would definitely recommend this device for everyone. With large screen, slim waist and S Pen it is a completely new and awesome experience of using a mobile phone.
    Thanks, Clove!
  • Nick 15/1/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Super efficient service from Clove, highly recommended.
    The Galaxy Note is an amazing piece of kit. Don't be put off by its size, providing you don't wear skin tight trousers the Note is so slim that it easily fits into a trouser pocket without being too obtrusive. After a couple of days to become accustomed to its size you will not want to go back to a smaller screen handset. It's quick and responsive with an amazing screen that displays everything with super clarity and vibrant colours.If you want a portable pc with phone functionality then the Note is for you.
  • Phil 29/2/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Had the phone for 5 days now and it is fantastic. Wanted a stylus and large screen phone for so long. This has everything I wanted and power to spare. Loving it.
  • john 11/2/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Galaxy note is a very powerful piece of device. buy an MHL adapter and you can use it in making powerpoint presentation.
  • Alinafe Mbendera 18/4/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    I ordered this device with several accessories which were delivered late due to DHL shipping problems in Malawi. However, this device is awesome! It is better than it is described on the adverts and on the website. The graphics and text are super high def and crisp, camera is very good. Clove customer support has been great and this is the device to get. It is portable and the music sounds good as well.
    Strongly recommend to anybody considering a nice smart phone.
  • Mohammed 28/5/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
