Galaxy Note

A family of popular Android-based phablets and tablets from Samsung. The first Note was introduced in 2011 with a 5.3" screen and "S Pen" stylus for drawing and handwriting. Based on the Wacom digitizer tablet interface, the S Pen can also be used for tapping icons and menus instead of fingers. The original Note was followed by enhancements in the Note II, 3, 4, 5 and 7. The Note 4 Edge added rotating toolbars on one curved side (see image below), and the Note 7 included the edge function.

Note 7 - Great Device, But With an Awful Flaw
Praised as the best Samsung phone ever with outstanding features, some batteries in the Note 7 were exploding or burning while charging, and Samsung initiated a global recall. Erring on the side of caution, several airlines banned their use in flight. However, after replacement units had problems, Samsung ceased all production of the devices in October 2016. See phablet and Note Edge.

Note Tablets
Starting in 2012, Samsung released tablets with a stylus under the Galaxy Note brand and screen size, such as Note 8.0, Note 10.1 and Note 12.2.

Screen Size Comparisons
The Notes' large screens along with Samsung's Galaxy S models induced Apple to offer the iPhone 6 Plus phablet in 2014 (see iPhone 6). See Samsung Gear.
