Sitting in between the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Mini in terms of specifications the Galaxy Fit offers a more curved design with a 3.3 inch 240 x 320 TFT touch screen display, an 800MHz processor, a 5.0 mega pixel camera and an expandable memory of up to 2GB with MicroSD cards, running the Android 2.2 operating system the phone grants access to over half a million applications via the Google Play shop (formerly Android market) and can connect using Wi-Fi, 3.5G data, Bluetooth and GPS.
The Galaxy Fit also offers a large range of social networking integration thanks to Samsung’s Social Hub application as well as support for Mobile Office programs such as Excel for viewing and sending documents on the go, it is powered by a 1350mAh battery and measures just 110.2 x 61.2 x 12.6mm making it extremely pocket friendly, as with all Android phones there’s a web browser supporting HTML, a multimedia player and Voice Search.
Samsung do very well with their range of white Android smart phones especially the Galaxy S2 which even outsells a lot of black editions of higher specification models, the Galaxy Fit’s main competitors include the HTC Wildfire, Samsung’s own Galaxy Ace and T-Mobile Vivacity.
The Samsung Galaxy Note was released in its original black colour scheme on Three Mobile deals last week and now the white Galaxy Note has followed suit with contracts now available on the dedicated 3G network, offering everything the black model does the white version encases it all in it sleek, lighter coloured casing.
Samsung Galaxy Note White deals on 3 Mobile offer a free phone from just £30 line rental per month, you’ll find these on the Three Mobile 500 tariff which allocates 500 minutes of calls, 5000 SMS messages and 250MB of data each month, for those looking to use their white Galaxy Note more for internet browsing, downloading and watching videos there is a better tariff at £31 per month which offers unlimited data.
The Galaxy Note is the largest touch screen smart phone currently available with a massive 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display, it also is the only phone on the market to use Samsung’s S-Pen technology which is a slide out stylus which allows for more accurate control, handwriting recognition and note taking, the main camera is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S2 at 8 mega pixels and records video clips at full HD 1080p resolution and the phone is powered by a fast dual-core 1.4GHz processor.
It may be big but the Samsung Galaxy Note is surprisingly slim at just 10mm thick, it is an Android 2.3 phone that will be updated to the new Android 4.0 of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the summer, this same new operating system is now being released in new models such as the HTC One X and One S with many more on their way soon, Samsung have also included their ChatOn instant messaging service as well as email integration and a whole host of applications to get the most from the phones big screen credentials.
The closest any other phone gets to the screen size of the Galaxy Note is the HTC Sensation XL, Titan and One X models at 4.7 inches which is why many refer to this particular device as a tablet / smart phone crossover rather than simply a phone, the overall dimensions are 146 x 83 x 10mm and it weighs in at 170g which accounts for one of the largest batteries on the market at 250 mAh.
The new white colour variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note has now been released on Pay As You Go deals in the UK, already available on Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and O2 contract deals this is the first time that those consumers not wanting the Galaxy Note with pay monthly offers can finally get their hands on this beast of a phone.
Samsung Galaxy Note White deals on Pay As You Go will suit anyone who prefers not to receive monthly bills or possibly cannot pass the network credit checks for contract deals, it would also make for a great replacement phone for a lost or stolen handset should the previous of not been insured.
Sporting the largest touch screen of any available smart phone the Samsung Galaxy Note white edition packs an HD supporting 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display which almost throws it into the realms of the tablet sector, uniquely though it comes with a hidden stylus known as the S-Pen which can be used on the screen for handwriting recognition, control and jotting down notes.
On the reverse of the Galaxy Note is an 8 mega pixel camera very similar to that of the best-selling Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Sensation XE and iPhone 4S which can record video clips in 1080p full HD and there’s also a secondary 2 mega pixel camera on the front of the phone for video calling.
Packing all of the great features of the Android 2.3 operating system which includes fast 3.5G data connections, Wi-Fi and GPS with satellite navigation the Galaxy Note has also now been promised an update to the new Android 4.0 instalment like that of the latest Samsung Galaxy Nexus, this will add in advanced NFC support and a whole host of new task and battery management features.
All of this is run on a the second fastest processor currently available on the market which is a dual core 1.4GHz chip, this is only trumped by the new Sony Xperia S and top end HTC Sensation XE at 1.5GHz, there’s also 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded with MicroSD cards and all is powered by a massive 2500 mAh battery to keep things moving for hours on end.
For those looking for a big screen phone the Galaxy Note has it all, the next screen size down is offered by the HTC Sensation XL and HTC Titan which both have a 4.7 inch display if 5.3 inches is a little too much for you.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note White has now had deals released on T-Mobile after being launched on O2 and Vodafone contract deals over the past few days, the new white Galaxy Note joins the original black edition with the same specifications on board but in its new white housing.
Samsung Galaxy Note White deals on T-Mobile can be picked up from free at £31 per month with line rental prices starting at just £16 per month with an upfront cost, free Galaxy Note White deals are offered on 3 contracts at £31 with our pick being the T-Mobile 600 Unlimited deal which includes 750MB of data, unlimited SMS and 600 minutes of calls which can be used at any time to call any network or landlines.
For those wanting more inclusive data there’s a deal at this price with 1.5GB available but with 300 minutes or the brand new T-Mobile ‘Full Monty’ tariffs could be worth a look with the cheapest at £36 and an upfront cost for the white Samsung Galaxy Note of £9.99, this provides 2000 minutes of calls, unlimited T-Mobile to T-Mobile calls, unlimited text messages and most importantly unlimited data with no fair use policy to worry about.
There’s also the new £41 Full Monty deal which turns the capped minutes to unlimited as well meaning the user can use their phone for whatever purpose including tethering gadgets for an internet connection for as long as they require with no extra costs, the Galaxy Note white is free on this tariff and there’s currently 5 months of half price line rental to be had via redemption with the retailer.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a large touch screen phone that is not far off the size of a small tablet, the massive 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display dominates the front of the phone and there’s a slide out stylus known as the S-Pen which works with the screen for handwriting, screen control and jotting down notes, the main camera comes in at 8 mega pixels and is the same as the one offered on the Samsung Galaxy S2 as they both capture 1080p full HD video.
Run by a powerful 1.4GHz dual core chip the Galaxy Note is one of the fastest Android phones available from Samsung beating the 1.2GHz dual core processors of the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note, uniformed features of all of these handsets include Wi-Fi access, fast 3.5G data support and GPS with turn by turn navigation, the Note runs on the same Android 2.3 of the S2 but has also been promised an update to the latest 4.0 instalment this year which is only currently available on the Nexus.
There’s no news as to whether the Galaxy Note is to get a further makeover in other colour schemes, it would seem unlikely with black and white being the most popular, we really cannot see the appeal of this large smart phone in a pink casing as with the more pocket friendly Galaxy S2.
The brand new white edition of the Galaxy Note from Samsung has now been made available on a range of Vodafone deals in the UK, the new Samsung Galaxy Note White already had offers on the O2 network as well as SIM free offers from previous launches but now the number of contract deals has more than doubled with this latest release.
White Samsung Galaxy Note deals on Vodafone can now be ordered from as little as £20.50 per month, however anyone looking for free Galaxy Note White offers will need to opt for contracts of £36 line rental and above, the best of these is the Vodafone 600 Unlimited package which as the name suggests includes 600 minutes of calls and unlimited text messages plus a healthy 500MB of internet access every month.
Being an Android powered smart phone the Samsung Galaxy Note in white will need plenty of allocated data each month to keep all of its features and applications up to date as well as surf the internet so 500MB should cover most average users requirements, the OS is Android 2.3 (with an update to 4.0 coming Q2 2012) which means that the Galaxy Note has Wi-Fi access and fast 3.5G data support as well as GPS with Google Maps for turn by turn satellite navigation.
The main selling point of the Galaxy Note is the sheer size of its Super AMOLED touch screen at 5.3 inches diagonally across, this is by far the largest currently available on any smart phone with only the HTC Titan and HTC Sensation XL getting close at 4.7 inches and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus at 4.65 inches, it almost takes this phone into the realm of the tablet device.
Another unique feature is the inclusion of a stylus which has not been seen on touch screen phones for some time, this allows for handwriting recognition as well as expert control of the screen plus its ideal for jotting down notes and drawing pictures on that massive screen, all of this technology is run by a powerful dual core 1.4GHz processor as is the 8 mega pixel camera that like the Samsung Galaxy S2 can record video clips at 1080p full HD quality.
