The Samsung Galaxy Note And The Eluga Power - A Look At Styling And Screen Performance

When the Samsung Galaxy Note was launched towards the end of 2011 the model grabbed the attention of the public with its very large display. In the following months since its release the handset has proved very popular and as a result a number of other manufacturers are launching phones with similarly sized displays. The newest model to offer a new super sized display is the new Eluga Power from Panasonic. We take a look at design and display technology on both of these models.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a great looking handset which is best described as an enlarged version of the popular Galaxy S2 handset. This phone is never going to win any awards for its compact design and it is one of the largest phones on the market. While this may pose a problem for many smartphones this giant size is quite intentional on this device as it is intended to bridge the gap that exists between the smartphone and tablet markets. The model measures 146.9 x 83 x 9.7mm and weighs 178 grammes. The slim depth of this phone is particularly appealing and it contrasts well with the large dimensions of the screen. The models offers a very angular design with very gentle curves present at all four corners. When you first cast your eyes over the new Panasonic Eluga Power you notice just how rectangular in design this model is. There are hardly any curves present and this works really well on such a large phone. The device boasts dimensions of 136x70x9.6mm and a weight of just 133 grammes which is considerably less than the Samsung although the screen is slightly smaller. An attractive thin bezel surrounds the screen which dominates the fascia and the edges of the chassis are nicely contoured. It is hard to say which of these two phones offers the better design. Both models are very attractive in their own way and both should prove a big success with consumers.

The key selling point with both of these devices is their large screens so as you would expect both models sport some excellent display technology. The Samsung Galaxy Note incorporates a 5.3 inch screen that runs on the very latest Super AMOLED technology. This type of screen delivers very vivid colours and superb viewing angles. In terms of resolution the model can show 1280 x 800 pixels which means a total pixel density of 285PPI can be displayed. This excellent quality makes the handset perfect for web browsing and viewing multi media content. The Eluga Power features a slightly smaller 5 inch screen which uses LCD technology. The resolution of the screen is slightly lower than the Samsung at 1280 x 720 pixels but because of the smaller screen size the pixel density is actually higher at 294PPI. Once again both models are very closely matched in terms of screen performance. The Panasonic has the slight edge in terms of pixel density but the Super AMOLED screen used on the Samsung delivers more vivid colours and deeper blacks.

The Samsung Galaxy Note and the Panasonic Eluga Power are two perfect devices for consumers looking for a large screen device but not wanting something as large as a tablet. Both of these models boast an attractive design while screen quality is also impressive although the Samsung may hold a slight advantage in this area thanks to the use of Super AMOLED technology.
