Syncing the Galaxy Note from Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy Note made it’s way to the US this week and has been greeted with mixed reviews. Some feel the 5.3″ screen makes the device too big, while others like the extra real estate it affords. How do we feel about it? Hear our thoughts in the video below:

No matter how you feel about the size of the screen, it’s hard to argue with the rest of the Note’s specs. With a 1.5GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, 4G LTE, and more, the Note is easily one of the most powerful Android devices available today.

Choosing the Right Android Phone and Carrier Combination

Choosing the phone that’s right for you involves many things: camera quality, speed, screen size, keyboard features, and much more. What carrier the phone is on is not usually something people give as much thought to. In fact, many people simply limit their options to the network they’re currently on and pick a phone from there. When it comes to Android, however, choosing your carrier is an important step in choosing your phone. The question then becomes, “What carrier has the best selection of Android phones?”

The fine folks over at the popular Android blog, Phandroid, have taken it upon themselves to help answer that question! They write:

“It’s been three and a half years since Google introduced the very operating system we write about everyday – Android – and every major (and many minor) United States carrier has phones running it. Some more than others, of course, but who has the best lineup? I take a gander at offerings from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, MetroPCS and more and at the end I’ll let you know who I think has the best Android lineup.”

Curious to know what carrier has the best selection? Need some information on the best phones for each carrier? Hit the “Read” link below and head over to Phandroid to get all the details! An be sure to let us know who you think has the best Android phones in the comments!
