As I mentioned a week or so ago, I bought a Samsung S2 on EBay only to have Mrs Mouse intercept the post and claim it as her own.


So...



I've picked up a Samsung Note and am now seeing how that feels.

Plus points are that as it is the same size or larger than most Satnavs, it functions as well as a dedicated Satnav. Also with size, means that I make less mistakes on the keyboard when typing away, and the fact it has a huge battery means it genuinely gets through the day despite the fact I have not got over the stage of playing with the apps every few minutes. Despite the size, it fits quite happily in a shirt/jacket pocket, or even in a trouser pocket (is that a Samsung in your pocket or are you pleased to see me?). 

Whats bad?
Only a couple of things discovered so far:  large hands to hold it whilst making a call are a definite plus. Whilst its width does technically fit in my hand, holding it for a long while is slightly strained. Also I don't think I'll be using the stylus much, as I don't draw and its handwriting recognition seems to be at the novelty stage unless it can be trained in some way.

Just discovered this morning that the previous owner didn't do a factory reset on the beast and left about 300 pics on his phone. I'd give his girlfriend an 8 on HotOrNot.....

About styluses being fairly useless but not about screen sizes. Do the apps look OK on the larger screen?

Android phones have all been different sizes from the start so there is little problem with the resolution

Rumours that anonimouse does not date anyone over 20 are unfounded.

I think you nailed it by anonimouse (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Jul 20, 2012 at 08:31:14 AM EST
I picked that one as it didn't reveal too much, but it seems to have backfired a little

Our Lord Hulver told me off when I posted boobies, so I've been behaving myself since.

I know that CBB posted a pic of LS's tata's a while back, but they were partially covered. Was your pic not in the same state?
