  • 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.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note II

Pocketables
7 January 2013
  • 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.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100) Review

Tech2
13 December 2012
  • 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 II (Verizon)

LAPTOP Magazine
11 December 2012
  • Summary: From its huge 5.5-inch display to the improved S Pen and fast quad-core CPU, Samsung took everything we loved about the original Note and supersized it while providing the longest battery life you can get on a 4G LTE phone. The Multi-Window multitasking feature is yet another reason to get this Android handset.
  • Pros: Large display with sharp details and bright colors, Epic battery life, Useful pen features, Dual-view multitasking option, Strong graphics and performance, Blistering 4G LTE speed, Fast camera
  • Cons: Size can be overwhelming, Display dimmer than competing phones, Design has unnecessary logos

Samsung Galaxy Note II

MobileTechReview.com
6 December 2012
  • Conclusion: As with the first generation Samsung Galaxy Note, if you don't mind a very large phone and your use tends more toward web, email and video rather than calling, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is a unique cross-over phone that works both as a small tablet and a phone. It's not eminently pocketable, nor is it easy to use with one hand, but nothing beats the big screen experience when watching videos or surfing the web without panning and zooming. Our dream?
  • Pros: Huge screen, but slim phone. Digital pen, excellent custom software. Removable battery and microSD card slot.
  • Cons: Big phone! Maddeningly slippery. Screen tech doesn't wow us.

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review

TechSpot
15 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Google has strived to improve the standard text messaging and email clients that ship with licensed Android phones, but manufacturers tend to favor their own messaging clients on their devices. Samsung's take on messaging has mixed results. For starters, there's the ChatON service that allows Android, Bada, BlackBerry, and iOS users to send free messages and media to each other.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile)

LAPTOP Magazine
9 November 2012
  • Summary: With a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Display, quad-core CPU, improved S Pen and industry-leading battery life, the Galaxy Note II from Samsung is easily one of the best phones on T-Mobile. But should you get it from this carrier? The lack of 4G LTE (for now, anyway) and relatively high $369 price make this device a tougher sell than the AT&T and Verizon Wireless versions. Still, if you're in the market for a big-screen phone, the Galaxy Note II can't be beat.
  • Pros: Gorgeous 5.5-inch display, Powerful processor, Snappy camera, Improved S Pen, Very long battery life
  • Cons: No LTE yet, Pricey, Size makes it a bit unwieldy

Review Samsung Galaxy Note II GT-N7100 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
6 November 2012
  • Summary: Revamped phablet. The sleeves are too short or it tweaks at the waist - a clear case for a half-size. This was likely what Samsung thought when designing the Galaxy Note. The second edition just cannot be pigeonholed into a standard size. It is now even a bit bigger - and extremely fast.
  • Pros: Good workmanship, Very big screen, Powerful platform, Viewing angle stable, high-contrast screen, Very long battery runtime, Fairly good camera, Wi-Fi for 2.4 and 5 GHz, The courage to bridge the gap or, better, to fill the niche. Samsung does not need to fear competition in this size category up to this date. The uncompromising performance matches perfectly to that.
  • Cons: Mediocre choice of materials, Averagely bright screen, Slight bluish cast, Limited mobility, No LTE, A higher-quality material impression and a bit more brightness. LTE would be the icing on the cake.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (Sprint)

LAPTOP Magazine
5 November 2012
  • Summary: With a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Display, quad-core CPU, improved S Pen and industry-leading battery life, the Galaxy Note II from Samsung has the hallmarks of one of the all-time-greatest phones. Unfortunately, Sprint's 3G-only network doesn't do the Note II justice - and makes the $299 price point even more difficult to swallow.
  • Pros: Strong graphics and performance, Large display with sharp details and bright colors, Fast camera, Improved S Pen
  • Cons: Size can be somewhat overwhelming, Slow 3G speeds, A tad pricey
