Samsung Galaxy Note 1 Hardware

It is a big phone and no one can deny that. It might not fit your pocket and a bit too difficult to handle at first but you will quickly get used to it . A few minutes or hours with the Galaxy Note 1 and you might say it is like any other compact phone.

The 5.3 inch AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels is responsible for this honking phone. It is a really nice, one of the nicest we believe, display compared to the top brands of smart phones.

The nerve center of the phone is what is really new, a Superdragon dual coe 1.5GHz processor which is a tad faster than the first release of the Note 1. The phone also comes with 1GB of RAM and a storage of 16GB but you can expand this with a microSD if you need to archive more. It comes with Bluetooth and runs on several bands ranging from GSM to LTE. It also comes with an 8MP camera and an LED flash at the back while you get a 2 megapixel camera in front.

The S Pen which comes with the package is not a stylus in the real sense. It is a pointing stick using Wacom technology and you will get the hang of the gestures quite easily.

The package is a bit heavy though at 183 grams compared to its older sibling at 178 grams. The Galaxy Note 1 needs some parking space with a dimension of 5.78×3.27×0.38 inches.
