POLL: Is the T-Mobile Galaxy Note for You?

As you’ve heard by now, the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy Note is coming in a little over a week’s time.  Priced at $200-$250 with a two-year agreement, the phone and tablet hybrid is being loosed on the Magenta network on August 8.  Now that it’s no longer tied to AT&T, we wondered if it’s the phone for you?  Hit the poll below to let us know if this is your next Android.

  • I’m not going to extend my contract. I’ll give T-mobile until the end of next year, but if they don’t dramatically improve coverage in my area, I’ll be moving to AT&T, who now blankets my area with 4G. I can barely get a GPRS or EDGE signal on T-mobile, with plenty of dead zones. At which point they’ll have the Note 2 or some newer phablet.

  • I would love a bigger screen. I use headphones when I am not home, so putting the thing to my ear and looking silly won’t be much of an issue. However, at least with T-Mobile, all I get it promises that there will be a reliable update path, and of course nothing afterwards. While I love the idea – I would be probably making my next phone a Nexus line of phones.

    I actually went with the HTC One S, but I was considering both the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note. The father’s day specials tipped the decision to the HTC One S, although I still wonder whether the S3 would have been better.

    But when I compare the specs on the S3 vs. the Note, I see almost nothing that favors the Note other than having a bit in holder for the S-Pen. The S3 has more DRAM, the same screen resolution and it supports tethering.

  • I have an AT&T Galaxy Note as my work phone and while I’m happy with it it’s just a tad bigger than ideal (and I’m a big guy). IMO the Galaxy SIII is pretty close to perfect sized and totally what I’d go for now.
