I bought the Galaxy Note for its 1280x800 display. However, I am a bit disappointed that some apps have hardcoded font sizes and graphics and are not making proper use of the display. If an app just blows up its fonts and graphics accordingly to show the same quantity of information as a 800x480 phone, then it defeats the whole purpose. If a user is visually-impaired and needs a larger display, he shouldn't be getting such a display either. The following stock apps are still not making proper use of the display, ie they make the phone just look look like Fisher-Price toys, and wasting tonnes of pixels: Settings, Gmail, talk, Contacts. Third party apps would be, example, GPS Essentials, most games with bitmap graphics eg Jewels. Fortunately, many other apps do make good use of the large display. Some are: the stock SMS app, stock Email, Olivetree Biblereader, The Economist (except the cover image and index page). I love apps that can display text down to 7x12 per character, and that's the key reason I bought the Note. I look forward to Google updating the remaining stock apps to make full use of the available pixels.
