Samsung Technology Dilemma

Samsung really pushing all their might into producing all sorts of gadget imaginable. After much anticipated SIII launch...nobody could expect Note 10.1 (certainly not me...I was expecting Note II the smhobet* to follow suit)...I am blown away to the idea of tablet with a pen...WHOAA!!! I can do some serious art with it...with 10.1 inch of blank canvas...everything is possible. Reading and taking note would be easy breezy.

But deep down...I am a bit disappointed...as I thought there will be no more smhobet*, that Samsung have given up with the much controversial product due to its ambiguity in its classification. But lo and behold ladies and gentleman...Samsung is not cowering from the critics...instead they stomp their feet and say,' We are gonna make u scream!'....and screaming I am.

Comparing the first gen and second gen Note, the plus point is in its dimension, screen size, screen type, battery life, choice of internal storage, NFC availability, bluetooth version, SoC, RAM size and operating system.

Galaxy Note 2 do have a lot of boast about...but I wish they upgrade both camera quality (especially the front ones....who would want to make a video call with low quality picture? It defeats the purpose of making the video call). I don't understand why they sacrifice on screen resolution...what is the point of coming out with the latest version if u downgrade some of its feature? Well, I am no expert tech...just a girl with serious addiction to gadget...so I leave it to expert to do the judgement. Hopefully it will not effect much on the viewing quality. If someone ask me to choose between the first and second gen...its the second gen without a doubt!

Someone..somewhere out there may want to choose between Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. So here is the comparison made by http://versusio.com.

10 Reason for Samsung Galaxy S3

At quick and first glance, it may seems that Galaxy S3 is the one...but don't be fooled. 5 out of 10 reason in Galaxy S3 is attribute by its physical characteristic. And we all know that Galaxy note have its own distinct appearance...otherwise, it is just another smartphone with a pen, right?

Overall, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 is at par. Both have their own outstanding features and as a user, you may have to choose according to you needs and lifestyle. I personally would choose Galaxy Note 2 for I am a doodler. I listen better while doodling. I love the fact that I could save all my doodle to be viewed upon later and i didn't waste paper and pen to do it. Sometime i need to explain things with some visual effect, with note i dont have to scramble to get a piece of paper. Furthermore...I love to read. Having my hands full holding it is not a problem as long as my eyes can read with ease.

After establishing my preference here...this post have yet to end. I stopped breathing when I read about Samsung Window 8 Hybrid. Do you have any idea what does it mean??? It means that all my hopes have become reality. A laptop in tablet form and.....wait.....wait for it....it comes with S pen too!!! WHAT? Seriously it could not be better than that. This suits me PERFECTLY...it got the pen, the capability of a PC and mobility of a tablet. They come in two version: 5 series and 7 series. The 7 series being the high end with Core i5 processor, 4G RAM and 128G SSD...is my first choice (they debut price is pricey though $1200)

Albeit the craziness in this tech world...I have to be rational and just be thankful with whatever I have...honestly, one could not keep up with the speed of innovation and  revolution...unless you are some wealthy chic.

Note: smhobet = Smart Phone + Tablet (i create this term...and i think its cool even you aren't). I am not a techno gadget reviewer by choice...but I am so excited about these gadget and i need to share it with everyone. Sharing is caring...caring makes me happy :)
