With a new Samsung Note around the corner, know something about the hit Samsung Note Line-up.
Samsung, the biggest smartphone company delivers what it promised. This statement does not go without meaning. This South Korean company truly changed the smartphone game in the recent years. While Apple was rising fast offering premium smartphone which is the iPhone, Samsung risked by opting for Android and then everything changed.
Even though Samsung’s own OS mobiles performed pretty well, it was Android that changed Samsung status in the industry. It can also be said that Samsung changed Android’s status in the OS market. The Galaxy series truly stood out in terms of performance at the budget and with a wide range of options, it became a fan favourite.
The Note Line-up
Samsung S model phones are a huge hit. The S series helped Samsung to enter the premium tier. Though the S series is becoming a smash hit, Apple is still winning out people’s hearts with this optimisation and design.
This urged Samsung to develop a new line-up for bringing a balance between design and performance and hopefully released Samsung Note series for professionals. As expected, these monster devices took Samsung to another level.
As the Note line offered something more than iPhone, people started to flock towards Samsung. Who doesn’t like big displays and killer specs? The Note did the same. Adding a stylus (S Pen) made Note a hands-down best smartphone for the price.
The list of Note devices are as follows:
Note 1 (2011)
Note 2 (2012)
Note 3 (2013)
Note 4 (2014)
Note 5 (2015)
Note 7 (2016 & Discontinued)
Note 8 (2017 - Yet to be released)
The Note devices are different from other smartphones feature and build wise. They all house bigger batteries, rich and large displays, a Stylus (S Pen), Powerful camera, Fast processor and more RAM.
While the Note series is witnessing a new device each year along with its small brother S series, a bad thing happened.
The Note 7 Fiasco
While Samsung is enjoying the all-time hit of S7 and when it was willing to make 2017 its best year, the unexpected occurred. The completely redesigned Note 7 with killer features was launched and the users are absolutely loving it.
Within a few days, something unusual started. Note 7 devices began to catch fire and even explode randomly. A single case developed into multiple cases at various locations all over the world. One time it is a faulty piece, two times it is a random event and with more than nearly 100 cases, it became a fiasco.
The year which was destined to become Samsung’s best plunged the company into new depths. Samsung lost a huge market not to mention losing its valuable customers trust in the company. Samsung started to recall the device and send repaired and monitored replacements.
The same thing happened again with the replacements too. This made Samsung to officially end the Note 7 production and send it for recycling.
Let us hope that the next Note 8 device will be an awesome comeback for Samsung’s Note Line-up. We are extremely thankful to Samsung for the series and let us look forward to Note being a phenomenal success.
