Christmas is literally just around the bend and if you have not had the chance to buy or request for a cool gift this holiday season (and if your gift-giver has the moolah to spare for the same), then do consider the latest gadget I am presenting below. This item may be pricey but – just like good designer bags like Goyard or Gucci – is not only eye-candy but very useful (fairly life-changing in a way), only much cheaper than a Louis Vuitton or Prada.The Samsung Galaxy Note can be one addicting and uber gorgeous smartphone. It has the world’s first and largest 5.3″ HD Super AMOLED display screen – an expansive high-resolution screen that provides an impressive viewing experience. Some review websites state that this is
“…the handset those dreams are made of — if you happen to share that dream about obnoxiously large smartphones.”

But the Note (together with the S-pen) can also provoke a love-or-hate relationship with its owners because of the actual size that is a lot bigger than your usual handset but significantly smaller than the humongous tablets that can’t be used close to the ear when receiving calls. It is clearly a compact tablet that you can slip in your pocket (even if its contours will surely be discernible even from a distance) and function as handset and tablet rolled into one.
Aside from its tag price (around PhP 35,000), the only other reason to hesitate in getting the Samsung Galaxy Note is if the thing won’t safely fit in the palm of your right or left hand. Of course, you don’t want it falling off your grasp and damaging a perfectly premium gadget. But if you’re like me who has gotten used to the 7″ tablets of HTC and the similarly Samsung-branded ones like the Tab, this is a cool alternative that will spell a good dose of convenience more often than not.
I’m not sure if I will eventually own one (my budget won’t allow a hefty purchase at this point of the year anymore), but I definitely won’t mind getting one as a gift (Mama, can you hear me? LOL!) because I can fully maximize its use and be able to extend my mostly positive experiences with Samsung. 😉
