Samsung's Galaxy Note series has been around for four generations now. Maybe you're hanging onto an older model, and wondering if the Note 4 is worth the upgrade? Or perhaps you just want to see how much the quintessential phablet has evolved through the years? Read on, as Gizmag compares the Galaxy Notes I, II, 3 and 4.
Earlier this week, we took a look back
at the innovation of the original iPad, five years after the fact. But that got us thinking: what's been the biggest mobile innovation in the five years since then? Take Note: it belongs to Samsung.
Samsung put the phablet category on the map with the original Galaxy Note. But with more companies than ever making large-screened smartphones, is the Note still the one to beat? Let's find out, as Gizmag reviews the US (AT&T) version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The lines between regular-sized smartphones and phablets are getting blurred. The HTC One (M8)
, which would have been considered an oversized monstrosity just a few years ago, is now par for the course for Android flagships. Let's plop it down next to the most popular phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3
, to compare their features and specs.
Almost all tablets have screens somewhere in the 7-in to 10-in range. But what happens when you stretch that all the way out to 12.2 inches? You get the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro
, a device that's marketed for both work and play. Join Gizmag, as we review the enormous slate.
LG's smartphones and tablets aren't as popular as Samsung's, but that doesn't mean the company hasn't been making some nice mobile devices in their own right. Let's take a look at LG's latest phablet, the G Pro 2
, and see how its features and specs compare to those of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Samsung is about to unleash a whole mess of high-end tablets on us. With four Galaxy Pro tablets – the Galaxy Note Pro
, Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, and Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 – to choose from, we thought we'd line them up and take a look at their features and specs.
At CES 2014, Samsung unveiled a business-centered version of its Galaxy Tabs, the Galaxy TabPRO, which is available in three sizes. But the new slate the company seemed most amped to promote is the companion Galaxy NotePRO, which comes only with a 12.2-inch display. The Samsung S Pen stylus is also included, along with a suite of productivity apps and features designed to take advantage of the combination of a stylus and the NotePRO's 2560x1600 resolution screen.
Planning on putting a new tablet on your holiday wish list? Or maybe you're trying to find the perfect slate for a loved one? There are a lot of tablets out there, but Gizmag is here to help you sort through the mess. Join us, as we compare the features and specs of the year's most popular tablets.
