We awarded the $299 Samsung Galaxy Note a Most Versatile Device award in large part due to this phone's two most prominent differentiators: the large 5.3-inch screen and the S Pen. However, just being big and new and pen-enabled isn’t enough to capture the hearts of the Android-loving populace. You need the newest OS, a powerful processor, LTE speeds, and a high resolution display. Oh, and it should make phone calls.
Apple made a lot of shutterbugs happy with the camera upgrades in the iPhone 4S -- more pixels and a bigger sensor means an even better "best camera" to carry everywhere. Want to take the iPhone even further than that? With some additional accessories and apps you can turn this device into a mobile photo and video studio worthy of your enhanced skills.
