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 using fingers. The original Note was followed by enhancements in the Note II, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 (there was no 6). The Note 4 Edge added rotating toolbars on one curved side (see image below), and the Note 7 included the edge function.

Note 8 - Latest Note
Introduced in 2017, the Note 8 is Samsung's flagship smartphone. The Note 8 superseded the Note 5 (there was no 6), and the 7 was a huge failure (see next paragraph). The Note 8 is similar to the Galaxy S8+ but with an S Pen stylus, which is what makes all Notes unique. The Note 8 features dual SIM cards, dual screen resolutions and dual cameras, the latter with telephoto lens, 2x optical zoom, f1.7 aperture and adjustable background focus (see bokeh). See Galaxy S.

Note 7 - Great Device, Awful Flaw
Praised as the best Samsung phone ever, 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 7 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. Therefore, a Galaxy Note 8 can refer to a smartphone or tablet.

The Note Influenced Other Phone Makers
The large screens on early Notes and other Galaxy models quickly became popular and induced Apple to offer a phablet in 2014 (see iPhone 6).

The Wrap-Around Edge
The Note Edge added rotating toolbars on a novel, curved screen (see Note Edge). (Image courtesy of Samsung,
