Samsung Galaxy Note 2 — a hands-on review
8 March 2014
Conclusion: But let’s go back to the speed of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – it’s phenomenal. This is, hands down, the best media and internet browsing portable machine we’ve seen in ages. It’s too big still to be used as a normal phone – people will still think you’re more than slightly odd holding it to your face – but for texting, browsing, emailing, watching movies and more, we haven’t seen much better than this.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review: the Note is back, bigger and better
8 March 2014
Excerpt: It hasn’t even been a year since the original Samsung Galaxy Note launched. It was a work of genius for old Samsung. Many (including us, we admit) were not convinced. Who on earth would want something so big to make their calls and surf the internet, even with a glorified stylus? Cue awkward silence. Millions of you, it would appear. The Samsung Galaxy Note has sold by the bucketload.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is definitely one of the top models of Samsung, next to Galaxy 3, and its main characteristic is that talks of a large display on which you can write with the pen provided. Specifications are exceptional, the technical advanced, the operating system very updated and the photographic department of the highest quality. In a nutshell, a great smart phone from all points of view.
Pros: NFC module, 2 GB RAM, S Pen with advanced features; Numerous applications for the S Pen; Advanced photo features, 1.9 MP front camera, internal memory, quad-core processor, Design, Android 4.1
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note II has sold 3m units worldwide since its launch – so what’s the appeal of the updated ‘phablet’, and is it for everyone? We checked it out to answer these questions and more.
Excerpt: Samsung entered the market with their 5.3-inch Galaxy Note not expecting it to sell well, but they pretty much single-handedly created the 'phablet' market we all know and love today. Before the Galaxy Note was released, smartphones at the 5-inch market were laughed at, and considered tablets. Samsung changed all of that.
Conclusion: As always, it depends. If you are excited about the S Pen, the large display for multitasking, and if you really need this to be a phone, not a tablet, then the Samsung Galaxy Note II absolutely is for you. However, if you couldn’t care less about a stylus and would rather have a full HD screen resolution, then I recommend the recently released Sony Xperia Z.
Conclusion: I’m sure a lot of you are up in the air with the Note 2, its size really limits the market. The truth is, Samsung has the Galaxy S3 for people who don’t want/need a larger device. The Note 2 fills in a hole in the market that other manufactures have ignored. Some people, like me, love the idea of a phone large enough to take the place of my tablet. Not having to carry around multiple devices is great.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note II will set you back a whopping Rs 40,000 and while that is a lot, you are getting a whole lot more than just an Android phone. So it does offer a lot more value than the S III. The Note II is possibly the first phone to ship with Google’s latest version of Android, so there’s a big plus right there.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review: The ultimate anti-iPhone
2 February 2013
Summary: Samsung delivers a powerful, boundary-pushing device that gets a lot right. Yet its complicated features and high price raise questions about its purpose.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Summary: If you love using pen and paper and intend to extensively leverage the S-Pen or if you do not want to move around with a phone and tablet then Galaxy Note II is the perfect solution for you. Buy it, learn how to make use of its great features and you will fall in love with it. If you do not intend to use the S-Pen then stick to the Galaxy SIII or another spartphone.
