It has touch sensitive navigation buttons just below the display (search, back, home and menu), plus a power button and volume rocker. At the bottom part of the Note, you will get the slot for S Pen.

HD Super AMOLED – Display

The Note also handles text and image rendering well, to produce sharp texts and details on web-pages and high resolution photos.

One of the apps known as S Memo Lite, allows you to write notes from almost everywhere in the phone. For you to pull up this app, you need to press down the pen’s button and then double-tap on the screen. If you’ve another app open, notepad will appear on the top, letting you to switchback to it easily.

The fuller version of the S Memo, called S Note Premium-Suite, could be accessed from the apps-menu. In the app, you could add colours to your text or drawing or insert shapes and pictures (either from the offered clip art or through the gallery).

In the Premium Suite, there are seven different templates to choose from such as travel, recipe, diary, magazine, idea note, meeting note and note. These templates enable you to easily add text, maps, video and images. You can also record as well as play back step-by-step drawing details. The Suite also incorporates automatic shape correction.

The 8 Megapixel camera snaps good pictures both indoors and outdoors. The Galaxy Note could capture HD video of up to 1080 pixels resolution. The gadget also incorporates a front facing 2 Megapixel camera for taking self-portraits and making video calls.
