Pros: Big display, easy to use. Samsung's TouchWiz interface is great. The phone worked as advertised (although the seller, not NewEgg, said it was unlocked, and it wasn't "fully" unlocked, but I'll review the seller separately). Android works great.
Cons: The display is large, so this is almost a "phablet". My wife complains that it won't fit in her pocket.
Summary: An Awesome phone! Once I bought this phone, the iPhone seems so very small and unfriendly! This to me is the size a phone SHOULD BE! Big enough to comfortably text and read email, watch movies and enjoy!
Summary: Love the large HD Amoled display. The stock samsung software is bloated. But rooting and upgrading CM10 turned this unleashes its potential. Battery life is average though. The recent Note 3 solves the battery issue.
Love my Galaxy Note. Nice improvement from the original Galaxy S phone

Summary: Coming from Galaxy s first generation phone, I was surprised at the size of the phone when I got it for the first time. But the size never bothered me anymore as I kept using the phone. The size is perfect for watching HQ videos because of the HD Amoled display.
Excerpt: My SGS II become too small and I bought Note. It's an excellent phone and tablet in one device. Excellent big SAMOLED display with 16:10 ratio is perfect for book reading and web surfing. Even two years old, this smartphone can cope with almost every android app.
Pros: - excellent display 5.3 SAMOLED HD, 16:10 ratio, - excellent connectivity, - good processor and graphics performance, - S-Pen
Cons: - laggy and unoptimized TouchWiz, - black color clipping
Summary: The SGH-I717 Note is great. Get ready for SIM Card HELL. The phone started off with a sim card issue. This must be a common problem. Stated no sim card installed. Then it would work, then it wouldn't. Then it stopped recognizing the sim card altogether. I put in a sim from a working T-Mobile phone.
