Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition Review

Score: 9.6/10

Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition is a top-notch device launched back in 2017, packing a great 2.3 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit, a large 5.7" screen, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera.

Samsung ships the Note Fan Edition with a Samsung Exynos 8 Octa 8890 chip, including a very powerful 2300 megahertz Octa-Core processor with a large 4 GB RAM. This cellphone counts with an amazing 64 GB internal storage and an SD extension slot, which allows you to store lots of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about filling the device.

The Note Fan Edition is sold in many different colors: black, blue, gold and silver. This device is quite a compact phone, given that it has a 5.7" screen and it is only 6.04 inches long. This cellphone is incredibly thin and stilized, being just 0.31" thick. The Note Fan Edition is much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size.

Samsung packed this cellphone with an astonishing 5.7 inches screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K), giving this device a perfect graphical experience.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera. this device's back side camera lens has a maximum f/1.7 aperture so it can take sharp photos even in dark conditions. It also captures 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition counts with a 3200 mAh huge Li - Ion non-replaceable battery providing the Note Fan Edition a quite long battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, while with its 3200 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before that happens.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition provides Wi-Fi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a wireless router), LTE-A 4G , the fastest connection type and fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This phone also features many great characteristics such as Fingerprint unlock, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth (4.2 ) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Note Fan Edition is being sold for around $ 611, which is not a good offer for a device this level. The Note Fan Edition is probably a great option no matter if you are looking for a cellphone for work, want it majorly for social networks and internet browsing, you love taking photos or need a phone to play games.
