Default Samsung Galaxy Note II Review Comment Thread

Samsung's Galaxy Note II melds several great ideas into a single design. A massive 5.5" screen interacts perfectly with a highly responsive stylus and there is processing power aplenty from its quad core processor. This is all wrapped up into a compact design but does the Note II truly represent the next step in mobile evolution?

The GN2 is simply one of the best tech purchases I have made. Been using it since early Nov.

Just wait until multi-window is available....I am using it now, and it really is usable and useful. I used it last weekend to keep my texts and a map visible at the same time.

Glad you like the format.

The highest accolades I can give a product is to say that it blended seamlessly into my life. That's exactly what this thing did and like I said in the review, I loathe touchscreen input. Unfortunately, it had to be returned to Samsung but I was so impressed by it, I bought one for my girlfriend as a Christmas present. Now I look on with envy whenever she pulls it out.... :(

Using this phone with unlimited data on my plan and honestly this is the best thing ever. Makes iPhones look like a joke IMHO.

By the way Skymtl, next step is buying one for yourself!

I'm shamelessly waiting for the Blackberry London. If it turns out well, I'll stick with Blackberry.

This phone is a great piece of hardware with nice specs and features, but one of the most stand out features that this phone has that ALL OTHERS need to model after is the size of the battery. The note2 has fantastic battery life especially for its screen size and all other phones need to go in that direction. We're reaching a point now where faster hardware won't really help much, we have lots of RAM, cameras are just about as good as actual point and shoot cameras... now we need to make these things last 2 days!

For those who like to get an official Samsung battery; you can buy the battery all by itself for $40, or you can buy a battery charging cradle for $40, that includes a free battery :) I got one from eXpansys.

Also, the Note II will charge very quickly if you can get a high amperage charger; the best i was able to find locally was a Blackberry charger that runs at 2.1a. the other charger (I have a car charger that is '2.0a', but is really 2x1.0a) takes much longer of course.
