Summary: This is my second note II after I dropped the first one and cracked the screen. On both phones I've found that the screen gets substantial burn-in after a period of time. The screen on my phone, which I've had under a year (this is a refirb, so it could have as much as a year and a half total use on it) has significant and very noticeable burn-in.
Summary: I am consistently on the road and my work demands being connected with my customers at all time. Samsung Galaxy give me the tools and I am able to stay on top of things. Great tool for work and home use.
Summary: It is an Android in reliable for people who do not take computers nor electronics seriously enough to learn how to manually use them and thus needs to be an automatic smart phone like the windows phone 8 which is user friendly
Summary: My Samsung Note II was an amazing phone prior to the last Android update. The phones many features worked flawlessly with Android 4.1 providing a great user experience. Since the Android 4.3 update there are many features that no longer work at all, such as Smart Stay, while performance features like the smooth scrolling through web pages and emails are sketchy at best. Overall a great phone rendered mediocre by a poorly executed software update.
Summary: Overall I went from excited to bummed out in 4 months. I bought the phone because it was big and I wondered about the stylus features. Within 3 months my phone became unusable as the camera app would crash the phone even after a factory reset. I had the phone exchanged for another Note 2 but was not told I had to keep my stylus and as a result I've had a Note 2 for over a year without a stylus.
Great phone- use it to with the company the phone came from!! T-mobile!!

Summary: The phone is wonderful but a nightmare trying to use with straighttalk. I finally gave up!T-mobile has a very reasonable no-contract rate. I would recommend using them. The phone itself is very user friendly with so many features to explore. I love all the voice commands you can use. Enjoy!
