Fonblet?  Phablet? Should a Fonblet be my Next Smartphone?

This Verizon Voices WHAT IS A FONBLET post is presented in conjunction with my participation in the Verizon Voices Boomer program and I have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

What is a Fonblet?

A Fonblet is a phrase coined by Samsung in early 2013, and further highlighted at a Samsung hosted analyst day, to describe the market it created in 2011 with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note.

A Fonblet as defined by Samsung, or the more common term of Phablet, blends the words Phone and Tablet. Fonblet describes a device with a larger display (5-7 in) that can blends the advantages of a smartphone and a tablet while eliminating the need for both!  A Fonblet (Phablet) becomes the one device you need to text/make phone calls/take hand written notes/and surf the web.

My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a Fonblet (Phablet)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a Fonblet. It has a 5.7 inch full HD screen. While there is never any need to use the enclosed S Pen to enjoy this device, you can use the S Pen to activate Air Command to perform tasks faster and easier. You can also use the S Pen to write yourself action memos. The phone can operate as a phone (DUH), TV remote, a camera, a video camera, serve as a hotspot to connect your other devices and seamlessly surf the web.

Why I recommend that you get a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Fonblet as your next smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 should be your next smartphone (IMHO)!

I am crazy about this phone. It’s the perfect phone for Women over 45. While I loved my first smartphone, the Motorola Droid HD MAXX which I reviewed here: Top 10 Smartphone Features for Women over 45 , I must say the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is even better. It’s wonderful to be able to have the bigger display and bigger keyboard. I adore that I can have two window open at once when I am web surfing. Although not billed as having an extensive battery life, I found this phone came close to my Motorola Droid HD MAXX. I loved how I could control the phone with my voice (something else to boss around).

Compared to the Motorola Droid HD MAXX, I just found the Fonbelt (Phablect) Note 3 to be so much more…exactly as it was billed.  I no longer need a tablet and a smartphone, I just need my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
