Possibly the best android out right now.

I have had my Sprint Galaxy Note 2 since Jan. 19 and love it. The screen is amazing and huge, yet i can still use it with ease. I have had many people ask me what phone i have and etc. The battery is great so far, yet im only on Sprints 3g speed since my area in the Upstate of SC has yet to get lte but i have gotten through a day with on average over 30-40% left. Ill take it off charge at 6am and by 10pm ill still have plenty of battery to watch Youtube, play games, or surf the web before i go to bed, i have yet to kill the phone through daily use, im sure 4g lte will use a little bit more battery just how much? The call quality is very good, no complaints there plus their is a little button that you can push while in a call that boosts the ear piece volume. I have no complaints about this phone, I love it!

Samsung Galaxy Note II

encaz has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Best phone I have ever owned. Glad I chose the Note II over the Iphone 5. Battery almost lasts a full day if you are a heavy user. I only have to CONS. The bottom of the phone is getting scratched by the charger and I have issued with the GPS. Phone is always trying to connect, I cannot check in on Facebook 90% of the time and APS that require GPS do not work most of the time. I am going to take it in to see if its a faulty phone or if it is a software problem.

most of motion sensors don't work! It's not smart at all

dashakol has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

These motion options simply won't work for me:
quick glance
1- smart rotation
2- double tab to top
3- wake up command voice needs network
what if I don't have one always?! and why should it use network for such a simple job?

not so samrt in these parts:
1- smart note
imagine you are working/thinking about a subject during the day. Every time you double tap with smart pen it opens a new S note, there is no fast/smart way to bring up the same note you were working on or at least a list of recent notes you were woking to be opened from the S note window.
2- turn on screen.
you should press the power button each time which is really slow responsing and a PITA!! no smart sensor for this part. as I told quick glance does not work at all. (for example to wake up when you open the lid of cover like amazone kindle paperwhite smart cover)
3- add photo note:
why there is no handwrite detection here? at least as a option.

Build quality 4/10 poor plastic case and fragile screen as many user experience.
Reception 5/10 as any other phone
Call quality 4/10 poor sound spacially in speaker mode.
Internet 5/10
Multimedia 5/10
Camera 7/10
UI speed 5/10 not fast enough considering the braged about processor.
Everyday usage 3/10 it's like you are facing a big challange for doing the most simple jobs like texting a friend.
Text input 4/10
Display 6/10
Battery 5/10 drain too fast.

Pros

  • non

Cons

  • big and heavy
  • not smart at all

Galaxy note II

joseph98 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Samsung Galaxy Note II, is simply the best Android phone for october 2012. I used to own galaxy note 1 and bought the note II simply because the note 1 deliver what I expect and I like the note 2 over the note 1 for the faster cpu and enhanced software for the S-pen that I used daily. The battery is really good in the note II and much better than the previous note 1. I also liked the 2GB ram and I found my browser shut down in my note1 due to lack of memory ram ( 1GB in note 1) when I open lots of pages in phoneArena over 12 pages but the note 2 has no problem opening over 20 pages at the same time. One thing I like more about the note 1 is the screen ratio 16:10 compare to note II 16:9 that I didn't like much.
Overall I am very happy with my unlocked phone and yes looking forward to buy the note 3 when available.
P.S. I wrote this quick review using my galaxy note II.

Best Phone, if you can get past the size

iDroidWin has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Note 2 left me speechless after I switched from desire. The difference between single core and quad core is amazing. I rarely cam across any lags or stutters. I wish it was true Android experience, as I have never felt android to be this smooth, not even with the custom ROM for my previous phone. Multi tasking is fairly easy, big ram and multi window only supports it. I have found myself using these features along with pop and play frequently often. S-Pen, however isn't for everyone, but it can improve your efficiency and it has helped me save time. Watching movies or TV shows just can't get better. If you have no issues with the size, its a must have phone. Camera recording could have been better though, its good not great. Its plastic, but I get a case for expensive phone anyways. So good enough for me. Battery last one day with HEAVY usage, two days with average. Its a beast.

The best phone in the world to date!

muzzy94 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

First thing I want to say is that, this phone is awesome! The display, call quality, battery life, the amount of software, removable battery (a plus for me), jelly bean(super smooth with project butter), micro sd slot, true multitasking (split screen view) and I can keep going for hours. All in all, I think this phone is a beast and it is going down in the history Book as the best phone in the market. I can't recommend enough to my friends and family to buy this phone. 1 of the reason they didn't buy this phone yet because the size and the high price tag. That's the only cons I can think of. When I bought this phone, all I can say is "Damn this thing is huge!" but after three days with this phone endlessly playing with this phone, I used to the size of this phone and when my father's back from his holiday, his s3 look so small when I first used it about 4 months ago. God damn what wizardy is this? Other that that, I think this phone is just perfect. Buy it and u will surely love it:D

zheking has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

It's the best phone in the world period . At first coming from s 3 I found it a bit to big but no I find the s 3 to small . Because u will definitely get used to it . The build quality is good but not great because it scratches to easy . But everything else is great

Call quality 10/10 Crisp clear
Internet 10/10 It's awesome on the 5.5 inch screen . YouTube is just plain awesome . Specially on the go
Multimedia 10/10 Watching videos is not good but great everything else is so easy to use on the huge screen
Camera 9/10 It's good everywhere and it takes awesome pics . But not when you are strolling at night
UI speed 10/10 Just perfect . Enough said
Everyday usage 9/10 It's good and all but it has a tendency to get out of my pocket for some reason but other than that its perfect
Text input 9/10 Better than my blackberry bold 9900. If u don't use predictive text
Display 10/10 Vivid clear . It's awesome for everything
Battery 10/10 Lasts three days on really heavy usage

Pros

Decent enough.

mage1724 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

What is samsung thinking of to use such cheap hollow plastics on such a high-end device? No chance to beat any rival in terms of build quality. Reception and call quality is decent, internet is great because of the large screen. However, the screen has less pixel density compared to the previous model. I don't like all the "improvments" samsung has made to their interface, it makes the UI looks a bit cartoonish and old fashioned. Battery is decent enough. Design of the phone is a bit too round and i won't remember it for too long.

Samsung Note 2 Big but still the best !!!

driveme has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I had the S3 and loved it but decided to give it to the wife to get the Note 2. I must admit the first few days I thought it was to big. Despite it's size I stuck with it and now I could never go back to anything else. I thought the S3 was the best phone I have ever had but the Note 2 takes it up another step. Jelly bean is just a little better and smoother than ICS. The screen defies logic, it's got a lower pixel count but yet looks better than anything out there. The over all performence of the phone is great. I hate it when people say a phone is perfect so here's the other side of the rating. The S pen take some getting used to. It's not very useful in the air mode, it's to sensitive and can not be used for anything beyond a preview of email but, turn that off and it's much better. The size is big but now everything else seems to small even the S3. Once you enjoy the large screen it's just to nice to want to go smaller. Emials, videos, internet and pictures are so much nicer on the large screen. Text imput is good but not great. IM not sure what Samsung does with their predictive text but it's needs improvement. Overall It's a great phone, the best I've ever used.

Build quality 10/10 Solid
Reception 10/10 Great
Call quality 10/10 The best I've heard
Internet 10/10
Multimedia 10/10 The large screen is a whole new experience.
Camera 10/10 The larger screen makes it easer to use.
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 9/10 Hope you have big pockets.
Text input 9/10 Love the size of the keyboard but predicitive text is crazy.
Display 10/10 The best I've seen.
Battery 10/10 Never been below 50%

Pros

  • Screen
  • Keyboard
  • Call Quality
  • Camera
  • Loudspeaker

Cons

  • S Pen needs improvement

The Best Phone In The World .. PERIOD !

ricodroid has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

what can you say about a perfect phone .. size isnt big .. i have a small hand but its still compact in my hand and i can type and hold .. screen is superb and more realistic than before super MOLEDs .. processing and multitasking is a proof that android crossed iOS in multitasking cause it may take more than 20 apps to slightly degarde speed .. almost not noticeable .. great featured camera .. excellent Jelly bean experience .. smart and smart and smart .. best phone in the world hands down !

Build quality 10/10 I know a lot of ppl say plastic design suck .. but lets be honest isnt one of the reason why damage cant reach the screen if you drop ... plus making your device very very light !
Reception 10/10 no problems at all with reception
Call quality 10/10 excellent calling quality no noise or drops
Internet 10/10 internet is super fast .. no lags and ease of use and access
Multimedia 10/10 cant beat it .. it gives you all options and customizations .. you can do anything
Camera 9/10 dont let it fool you .. even though this is 8 MP camera .. it has lot of options .. but you know .. this is not the best in the market
UI speed 10/10 Jelly bean is the reason .. but no lags no issues .. superb speed in all operations and great multi tasking
Everyday usage 10/10 all about shortcuts and ease of use .. cant get bored with this guy at all
Text input 10/10 accuracy and simplicity .. how great could it be when you have tons of ways to get your text in
Display 10/10 as marverlous as the s3 ... no difference !
Battery 10/10 one of the most amazing battery consumers .. but i gotta give it to the battery

Best SMARTphone I've owned so far!
Touchwiz UX is really good, JB is extremely smooth, S-Pen is really pratical, the multiple-screens multitasking is awesome, build is solid and the screen is just gorgeous!
I love it! The best smartphone out there!

Samsung galaxy note 2

JohnnyCageisagirl has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Truly the best phone I have ever seen. It is innovative, great build and what a way to be creative. The camera looks great especially if you want to add special effects to photos like drawing on them. Amazing audio and video capturing. Great for games, movies and shows. It really helps you to make schedules and calendars. Jelly bean works great on this phone especially the GPS. S-voice is even more faster. The camera can capture great hd photos even in low light conditions. Multi-tasking is at its best on the note 2 when you can watch a movie or a video while surfing the net. Great uses for the S-pen. Truly the best smartphone and the king of android phones

Note II (Review by an overjoyed pleb)

JesterTheJarl has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I've not owned many Android phones, but I've used many of them, HTC's, Samsung's, Motorola's, LG's and this one is the best I've used so far, just blisteringly fast, but that's my opinion, you should really try it as soon as you can, it's really worth it.

(It's more for people with huge hands though)

And yeah, definitely beats any iPhone, hands down.
