Anyone get a Samsung Galaxy Note?

It seemed like everyone was dead excited bout the Samsung Galaxy Note when it was first announced -- but did many people actually buy one?

I've played with one, if there's something you want to know about it :).

I didn't buy one as I already have a Galaxy S2 OC'd to 1.6ghz (making it faster than the Note), and the massive screen just isn't practical for everyday use aka texting whilst holding something in your other hand.

With matty on this one.
Great device, but you end up carrying a 2nd phone for quick calls and sms etc...
I just had a play with it today - browsing is cool, and I do love the S-pen (I'm an old winmo user - well used to fiddling with a stylus, and Samsung really took it to a new level)
Also: SPB's Shell 3D in tablet-mode makes excellent use of the ginormous screen.
But sim-free it's more expensive than an iPad 2, so o_O

It is a lovely device but since I'm not convinced there's a genuine need for a device between a high end smartphone and a laptop (the gap the tablet apparently fills), I'm absolutely sure there's no need for a device to fill the non-existent gap between the smartphone and the tablet (which the Note apparently fills).

Saying that, it's a lovely piece of hardware and the S-Pen is the best stylus (capacitive or resistive), that I've ever used. The screen looks positively beautiful and everything zips along nicely with that 1.4ghz Exynos under the hood.

Overall, it's lovely to play with but you wouldn't want to own one and have to use it on a day to day basis, especially if it was your only phone.

Yes it fits in your front pocket, it works like a good phone, but the big screen is much more useful. I love it. I have the European version with the faster CPU but no LTE. I no longer carry my IPAD

When you first get it you'll need to charge it. Once charged, just use and charge whenever you feel like, you do not necessarily have to wait for a full drain to charge. If your battery does get fully drained, don't leave it empty for long or the battery could reduce its capacity or go into a deep sleep.
