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: There's not much not to like with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It's virtually better in about all areas compared to the original Note. It's got a slightly larger screen size, much faster with 2 extra cores making it a Quad-Core, better graphics processing unit, more system memory (RAM), more internal storage with a 64GB model, significantly better battery life from a larger capacity batter, a new Android operating system that is stable, more features throughout, just...
Summary: In the last four weeks, I have really enjoyed getting to know my Note II. I know there are a lot of things that I still need to learn about it. I also can see me writing about it quite a bit, which judging by your comments is something that a lot of you would like. I am primarily a weekend writer, so keep an eye out on Saturdays and Sundays for more about the Note II.
Summary: I mentioned in my unboxing that my overall impression of the Galaxy Note II was that Samsung’s designers had taken a Galaxy S III, used the resize tool on it, and added a stylus. And this, I think, is the Galaxy Note II’s downfall. It isn’t bad, but it could have been better than it is.
Excerpt: To say that the original Galaxy Note was a game-changer is a bit of an understatement. It is said that the best marketing move is not by catering to an existing need, it is creating a need that wasn’t there before. The original Galaxy Note is among the best examples of.

Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note II is one impressive package that blows everything else in the market out of the water. It hasn’t got the best camera or the best display or the most comfortable size. There isn’t one thing that sets the Note II apart. It is the sum of what it is that places it on a pedestal. Here is an itemised review of the Galaxy Note II.
