Why did I switch over to Samsung Galaxy Note from iPhone 4?
I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy Note and I was using an iPad 2 along with my Mac Book Pro. This is my second Android device and there were few reasons for me to go for this big device.4 and an
First let me tell about my experience and thoughts on this so called big phone. Yes this phone is bit big, but not that big that it cannot fit into my hands or pockets. The device has strong / fast hardware configuration, good camera, but yet waiting for an update which they had promised way back (Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android). It has something called the S-Pen which I used to use with my earlier windows mobile. I was happy with my iPhone 4, but I was not comfortable with doing many things using my iPhone, so I added up iPad to the list of stuffs I carry with me when I am out for business. I often felt that I am carrying too much with me and I need to switch to something which could be my phone as well and cater to my needs of task management.
Galaxy note is a device which can do more than what my iPhone was doing. Having a bigger screen is an advantage and for a person like me who is growing old and need bigger screen would love to have a big bigger screen. Galaxy note cannot be a substitute for my iPad, but I preferred to switch to a single device which can help me in getting all my work done and currently Galaxy note is the best gadget.
Hope to get ICS for Galaxy Note soon and some improvements in the battery life. I do not complaint about the battery now as there are reasons for battery to drain fast. You need to set up your device well to manage better power management and currently I feel comfortable about the power back up.
To sum up, I switched from iPhone to Galaxy note for the reasons that it has a bigger screen, I can avoid carrying my iPad on many occasions and it is a very powerful device with a very powerful camera and powered with Android.
