Samsung's third generation "phablet" is an Android smartphone on the inside and a tablet on the outside.
The 5.7-inch high-definition display is decidedly geared toward business travelers.
The good: Incredibly zippy and with a gorgeous screen, this smartphone has serious power and a built-in stylus. One little-known benefit is a removable battery, allowing you to slap in a fully charged one when you're traveling.
The bad: The size of this phone necessitates a Bluetooth headset or earbuds.
Either that, or really big hands. Holding it up to your ear for prolonged conversations is quite uncomfortable.
The verdict: If your smartphone is how you read the morning news and watch movies, this is the device for you.
