6. Samsung Galaxy Note
From a distance, the Galaxy Note may look like a smart phone. But it’s actually a tablet in disguise.
The Note sports a 5.3-inch body, making it almost two diagonal-inches bigger than an iPhone. Add atop that a speedy 4G data connection – something no Apple product has – a gorgeous screen, and its S Pen, which is a stylus that comes included with the tablet. Such a pen could be useful for note-taking, drafting, or doodling. Imagine a modern-day Palm Pilot.
The Galaxy Note stands as one of the most compact Android tablets (or maybe one of the most spacious phones) on the horizon.
