Greetings, Phandroids. Looks like you’ve made it into another episode of the Android Overload. This is the place you can always turn to when you still have a craving for even more Android related news. On the menu tonight? Well, have a looksie below. My favorite story is despite all the Galaxy Note naysayers, Samsung claims to have shipped 5 million units of the device. Sounds like a success to me.

    Apearently people don’t mind ginormous 5.3in smartphones.

    • socalrailroader

      Nope, in fact, we love our Note’s, APPARENTLY. ;)

      • Android_God

        At least you have a lot of screen space to text while driving the train! ;)

      I’m with Socal, I absolutely love my Note. :)

      Not everyone lives in Steve Job’s perception of the world.

      Same here.  <3 it!

    I’d much rather have a 4.7 inch phone and a tablet instead of a extra large smartphone that’s harder to carry around.

  • Fred G. Vader

    Yes we do love our galaxy notes! And it’s not hard to carry around at all. It’s no different than carrying around my evo. I wish people would stop speaking from their erroneous perceptions. Always amazes me how someone can offer an opinion and they haven’t actually owned the phone!

    Not on topic with anything here but I live near Houston on Sprint and was pushed a PRL update to my phone. Did Sprint turn in their enhanced 3g in Houston this morning? Does anyone know? In any event I now have full 6 bar signal strength where I usually have a 2-4 bar.. :)

  • averymlewis

    I just wish Sprint and the other carriers would get their variants of the Note

      Sprint will. And coming very soon :)

      • Downtoearth2

        how do you know?

      • Aeires

        Question is, what processor?  After owning the Epic Touch 4G, I’m sold on Exynos.  Does Exynos support LTE yet, because it’s likely Sprint will be pushing LTE as much as possible.

  • KL Wong

    There is NO WAY IN HELL I can go back to anything smaller than 5.3″ now! Best phone ever. Hands down.

  • iPhart

    SOLD !
    Not shipped.

  • randy cowles

    best “phone” yet!

  • averymlewis

    I find that difficult to believe considering they really haven’t shown much lately. Unless they were to be waiting to add their new lte to their new line up of phones for this year however they could have still announced something considering they have lost a lot of customers to other networks. I have even thought of changing carriers for the note however I strongly dislike at&t
