The Samsung Galaxy Note line of smartphones had a rather interesting history. When the first generation was launched everyone was sceptic about it mostly due to the size of the phone. Just a couple of months after the launch and the sale numbers stated the obvious, users do want bigger phones and the extra features have been more than welcome. The Note offers increased productivity and extra features that cannot be packed in a smaller size smartphone.
On the other hand this also lead to a problem. The Galaxy Note is difficult to hold with one hand and will barely fit inside a pocket. This means that it can get scratched easily and it is much more likely to drop it. Samsung knows this and over time they attempted to improve the design and the grip of the back cover. However everyone knows that not even the engineers at Samsung would not use the phone without a protective cover or case. There is absolutely no better way to protect this gorgeous phablet from fall damage, dust and scratches.
