The good: Oodles of screen real estate make the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 terrific for videos, games, and reading; and its improved stylus aids productivity. A blazing quad-core processor, a great camera, and strong battery life round out the advantages of this Android 4.1 phone.
The bad: The huge display makes the Galaxy Note 2 unwieldy to carry, and hiccups in the S Pen stylus and apps can slow you down. The pricey Note 2 isn't a suitable tablet replacement across all categories.
The bottom line: Samsung delivers a powerful, boundary-pushing device that gets a lot right. Yet its complicated features and high price raise questions about its purpose.
I can easily say its the best phone Ive ever owned.
by ncowen92 on December 18, 2012
Pros: Great for school. The multitasking and availability of the note paired with the S pen makes tasking so much easier.
Cons: I really wish the power button was located at the top of the phone. Also if you use the phone for everything from taking notes to browsing the web to gaming like I do the battery will need a late afternoon charge.

Summary: Coming from an iPhone 4 and never having any smartphone off of ios until now I am blown away. This phone is amazing and has convinced me to never go back. The phone itself is also awesome for games, videos, taking notes for school, or general use. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone thinking about it. Even over the Galaxy S III
The most amazing phone yet!
by abbaszahmed on December 17, 2012
Pros: Superb Graphic, large screen for watching movies and videos, faster processor and ease of use!
Cons: Nothing bad of this amazing phone.
Outstanding Gargantuan Artistry!

Pros: Vivid display; smooth; more solid than a S3; removable memory; micro simm ; one hand operations capability settings; integrated texting fluidity; Jelly bean OS; Easily flash enabled with Flash Plugin; etc., etc., etc.
Cons: BIG as in HUIGE!

Summary: The sound is loud and and clarity rivals the iPad if not better. Videos look clear and if the lighting is dim, easily lighten it with the easily accessible brightness button.
Be ye not deterred by the size. This is the best hand phone, or rather two handed phone on Earth.
by androidcatdog on December 9, 2012
Pros: Too many to list.
Cons: Not pure android, non-guaranteed/slower updates, lesser quality apps than the iPhone 5, less ppi.

Summary: The Note 2 crushes the iphone 5: Lesser SAR radiation level, Jelly Bean OS, Removable long-lasting battery, SD card, LED notification light, Huge display, S-pen, Google Maps, Choice of keyboards, Light-weight and pocketable, Great camera, Replaceable backplate in case of drop, etc... all make the Note 2 superior. Go big or not at all.The Note 2 has an extra GB of RAM vs the iphone 5.
Updated on Dec 9, 2012
Updated on Dec 9, 2012The Note 2's Quad-core processor vs iphone 5's dual-core.
Updated on Dec 9, 2012The Note 2 has automatic text reflow/ word wrap. With the iPhone 5, you must move your finger on the screen to the right and then back to the left to read all the words. With the Note 2, you can speed-read the whole paragraph without moving to the right then to the left, etc...
Updated on Dec 9, 2012Impractical opinion. The only monstrosity is your fake review.
Updated on Dec 10, 2012LOL The above was a reply to a different review. I am shamed.
Updated on Dec 16, 2012Text reflow is automatic on Android. Iphone 5's "Reader" feature is not available on all websites and never available on any comments sections or forums/ message boards.
A great phone, really big
by gentleteethdds on December 7, 2012
Pros: 1)Nice big screen
2) the S pen and software comes in handy taking notes during class, and other stuff.
3) nice software
4) speedy processor and ram
5) camera is a bit better.
6) battery life not bad
Cons: 1) size takes a while to get used to. but i got big hands to compensate with it
3) need to tone down on the bloatware guys.
4) sometimes the s-pen features are a bit slow. could use more templates

Summary: i sold my galaxy s3 to my friend and picked up the note 2. i found the contract price very steep and i was very skeptical with the phone. i will say that the galaxy s3 and the note 2 will always be my favorite phones. so i took a chance and got the note 2 and the s-pen features comes in handy in school and work.
Great Phone for Creatives
by robotvoice2079 on November 30, 2012
Pros: Large Screen to show off you photos and media
Android allows More Custom UI / Skin options
Stylus Pen great for Drawing / ideas /productivity Sketching!
You get used to spacious screen & then it makes other phones look tiny.
Cons: If you're a pant pocket carrier and wear tight jeans and t-shirt, might want to think about where to carry it. - I carry in inner jacket/blazer pocket and front shirt pocket with no issues.
Summary: I wound highly recommend for any media designers / creatives / artists and people who want to customize the look/ UI. Shows off work very nicely. Pen comes in very handy for ...
Summary: I wound highly recommend for any media designers / creatives / artists and people who want to customize the look/ UI. Shows off work very nicely. Pen comes in very handy for quick ideas. I was afraid of the size, but I quickly got used to it, now smaller phones look tiny and constricted.
Overall: Super fast, bright and snappy! I just love this phone.
The biggest baddest cell phone on the block!
by mormandy3 on November 30, 2012
Pros: Incredibly fast and fluid operation with 1.6ghz quad core and 2gb of ram. Biggest display of any phone at 5.55", and the AMOLED is gorgeous. Split screen muli-tasking, MicroSD capacity of 64gb exfat. Smart stylus, long battery life.
Cons: It's size may be too much for some, but be sure to get into a store and try it on for size before making that call. Many find that it "grows" on them after only a day or two. It's expensive.
Summary: The dream of the perfect cell phone has been realized. Awesome reception and call quality and battery life in the phone category. As a computer, it is more like a ...
Summary: The dream of the perfect cell phone has been realized. Awesome reception and call quality and battery life in the phone category. As a computer, it is more like a PC than any other smart phone to date, in terms of speed, the ability to multi-task, etc. Though a bit small, it fills the need that many have for a tablet, myself included. Let's face it, a tablet is a toy for most, and they are expensive. If you can get a phone that with a 5.55" screen big enough to enjoy multi-media and serious internet use, along with a smart stylus that lets you doodle, take notes, has script to text conversion, and lets you draw, and notate anything you want, do you really need a tablet? Many like myself would say, no, this will do just fine.
And if you like owning the best in life, this is the best phone in terms of function, technology, and plain old coolness. It makes the iphone 5 seem like a dinosaur (and I've used both).
Better than what I expected
by avelonokc on November 19, 2012
Pros: Screen size is a plus
Easy to use
fast fast fast..did I say fast?
battery life is AWESOME. Better than my iphone or my last LG phone.
Takes good pictures with great color. (some people dont like the brighter exagerated color, but I do!)
Cons: Takes a few days to allow the hands to get used to grasping it.
I am always worried about taking it out of the pocket and dropping it. Would be a very expensive phone to drop.
Summary: Let me say that this is a big phone. Yes, the first few days it did strain my hand to hold it. I had to put it down due to ...
Summary: Let me say that this is a big phone. Yes, the first few days it did strain my hand to hold it. I had to put it down due to my hand being tired. After a week, I have no problem holding it. I actually keep it in my front pocket. Wasnt sure It would fit, but it does. Watching videos is awesome with such large screen.
by ajrozsa on November 17, 2012
Pros: Feels good in the hand, can be used one-handed, has so many features it is impossible to explore all of them. Use is intuitive. It is esthetically pleasing. Reading text in "normal" mode is a cinch. Cameras work perfectly. Phone sound is great.
Cons: People with small hands will have a problem using it one-handed.

Summary: I am one of those people who wanted a phone to be a phone. Always first in line for a new gadget (still have my original Palm), I stayed away from Swiss-knife devices, preferring to use the best device for as specific use. The Note 2 completely changed my attitude. It paired easily to my Acura TL's HandsFree, I synced it to Outlook 2010 and a variety of data sources within one hour of getting it, installed JuiceDefender to save battery life, had several text exchanges, checked email and voicemail, talked to a few friends, listened to a book, etc. All without opening up the User's Guide. I did stay up until 3 AM, "playing" with it, much to my wife's chagrin. After Palm, Windows smartphones, Blackberry 9700 Bold, this Android is by far the best device I ever used. Some charity will be very happy with all the stuff I am about to donate (iPAQ, Blackberry, Dash, Sony T650, Kindle, etc.). T-Mobile had a $300 cash back rebate and I am sure many great wills will be available within the near future. For the price, I don't think there is anything on the market today that can beat the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It is a true "iPhone slayer."
Best Phone period.

Pros: Large screen. super fast and responsive. Fills a niche that most manufacturers will not fill. I have a new ipad and a nexus 7 and i dont even bother to use those ever since i got my note 2. Really great phone all the way around.
Cons: Large. Thats the only real con about this phone. Might be a turn off for some.
Summary: The bulk of the phone compared to others might be a turnoff but once you give it a try for a few weeks you will never be able to use ...
