Excerpt: Samsung really got this one right. This review is coming from a "Fandroid" if you will, but I have to say there isn't much Google is doing wrong on it's OS, and Samsung has made some excellent hardware to go with it. I have rooted and ROMed this phone so it is currently running Android 4.4.4 on Cyanogenmod 11 ROM. EXTREMELY smooth experience. Battery lasts for a full day.
Pros: Speed, Durable, Quad Core, MicroSD, Battery life
Summary: I love my Note II. It is very user friendly, love the personalization features. Size is great! I use the stylus more frequently than I had expected and I enjoy the option. Great Product, always comparing with iphones! (I even watched a video comparison of the iphone 5 and the Note II before I bought my samsung, the video was on durability.
