Today a new gadget arrived from China.
This time the new “Android Note”.

Android Note is the common name for the Star N9000 I9220 phone.

As you can see on the photo on the right, it looks just like the Samsung Note 2, except the holes above the screen are on the left, on the Samsung they are on the right.

The first thing that I noticed was that the phone does not weight as much as the one I had before.
This phone only weight 200grams and that is including the battery. The original Samsung Note weights 178grams.

The screen is very bright and responds very fast, 5 point multi-touch. The description says it is a Super HD AMOLED screen but I am not sure if that is only the text from the original Samsung box.
