When the Samsung Galaxy touch blurs the line between Tablet and Smartphone. Whether the mega phone at this balancing act keeps above head, clarifies the testt.
- Samsung Galaxy touch in the test
- Data sheet
Tablet or Smartphone? In any case a Superphone. The Samsung Galaxy touch is almost as big as a chocolate bar and this record. Admittedly, it was not love at first sight between the Samsung’s new top model and the connect Editor.
The first encounter at this year’s IFA in Berlin was rather chilly. Too big, too unwieldy, and probably too power-hungry, in order to compete in the tough smartphone market, so the prejudice. Now the production model of the Galaxy has found a note to the laboratory test in the editorial – and the initial scepticism has quickly given way to a heavy dose of curiosity, finally it’s technology the 699 euro expensive mix of Tablet and Smartphone a very special piece.
Great, but noble appearance
The processing is without reproach, the housing is made of plastic, makes a lot here but with its ribbed and thus particularly grippy battery cover. Slim line is not disrupted even below from a high spot on the back, as it is to discover the Galaxy S I9000 and Galaxy S2.
On the issue of handling there are hardly two opinions: the Galaxy is big, but not bulky. It can be just still with one hand operated by thumb from large Patschern fits even in the front pocket of a pair of jeans – and you better not should sit down with mobile on board…
An impressive display
The main reason for the lush dimensions is the interface between man and machine: the huge, 5.3-inch capacitive touch screen with HD-Super-AMOLED technology. The display offers the currently highest resolution of all smartphones not only with 800 x 1280 pixels, but already ensures folded down JAWS at the appearance of the lets.
The technical key figures are hardly does justice quality of this display because a such brilliance, picture depth and plasticity came to us so far still not under the finger. History is the case of AMOLED displays usual sketch-over the colors, fascinated throughout the appearance and three screen modes can be adjusted by the user. The brightness measured 321 cd/m2 can be seen for an AMOLED display really.
For movies outdoors do particularly well, there is an option called “Visibility in the open air”, whose name is program in the video player.
With the “S pen” to the target
With the giant display also the good old stylus – come S(Mart) pen called – new honor. The operation works surprisingly well with the PIN placed on the rear side of the housing. Amazing, with which precision and what pace to work in everyday life can be. So, pen grows one of S after a short time on the heart. Especially since he can succeed with special functions: if it must go fast while recording information, just pushing the small button of the pen as well as a double click on the screen, and it S opens memo Lite, a simplified version of S memo, the integrated writing and painting program.
As a special treat, there on the homescreen to discover the icon S choice. An excerpt from the Android market with specific apps that are compatible with the S pen behind that. Currently, eight programs, including the popular EverNote can be found.
Who works with the S pen, is fret first about it, that the back button below the display as sensor surface is executed and not responding to the stylus. With a trick it works but still: press the small button below the PIN and move it from right to left across the screen, you’ll come back a step from any application – you need to know that.
Good details on every corner
The Android-2.3.5 model for the representation of the calendar plays the advantage of large displays. Here, you can select this the view tabs in lightning speed – by year to day, several options are available. Also the email client benefits from the huge dimensions and displays, just like Outlook, subject and content of the message at the same time. A really good thing. Otherwise, the Galaxy miser note not elegant solutions – about with well-functioning voice control, a configurable in detail energy management or various motion controls.
In addition there are in addition to the social hub, Samsung’s collection point for all incoming messages, and the music hub also a reader hub. The latter offers books, newspapers and magazines, while access to the music gates by 7 digital hub of the music.
In terms of hardware are the ingredients only at its finest: A 1.4 gigahertz dual core processor provides the liquid and delay-free operation, 11 gigabytes of memory are internally at the disposal, micro-SD card you can replenish. HSPA +, n Wi-FI, WI-FI direct, and the 8-megapixel camera, which is also full HD videos, round off the thick trim package.
Fabulous idea in the laboratory
So far so good. However, a Smartphone with a large display in the laboratory can cut really well? We had our doubts. But oh miracle – at the end came it differently: the mega-Smartphone not about only neatly cut off with his nominally 2500 mAh powerful battery, but caused numerous new endurance records. This starts with the standby time of 43 days and continues with the typical endurance with incredible 9:38 hours.
Not less impressive results for the talk time. Example compliant? D-20 hours and 27 hours in the E-network is a new measure. This applies also to the less than nine hours in UMTS mode. Such numbers provide test editors and Smartphone fans shining eyes.
But not only at the endurance, the Galaxy note sets standards, but also at the reception. So, the XXL Smartphone offers the currently best transmit and receive values when used in UMTS networks. Finally, the Samsung even with excellent, always well understand acoustic call shines. Where it will not for everyone safe to keep such a Kaventsmann to the ear. Here helps a headset – whether wireless or wired – bailout.
Conclusion: Smartphone for individualists
With this excellent idea, the Samsung Galaxy convincing note all along the line. The initial concerns could loose aside wipe the Samsung – and contrary to all expectations duping the entire competition. Whether its large format is however used by the customer must be seen.
The title “best Fulltouch phone” may be the Galaxy at least on the lapel pin note – and one thickness recommendation connect same time.
