You decide whether that is for the better or worse, and while no notes apps comes pre-loaded on Android device, the Google Play catalog has a ton of options for you to choose from.
But when it comes to those apps, there goes the cliche that Evernote is the be-all end-all app on Android, and you don’t need anything else. And while it’s true that Evernote has built a very robust note app and online sync platform, it does come with some limitations, and a hefty price tag for the full features like offline access to notes.
In reality, there are a lot of cheaper, simpler and often just different note-taking applications that are definitely worth your attention. If that’s what you are looking for, the Android notes apps picks should serve you well.

PhoneArena missed an android phone called galaxy note preloaded with note taking. So not just the iphone is preloaded with note taking. but what Android devices do not have is a built-in note taking ( except samsung galaxy note & note II) application, in contrast with the iPhone. You decide whether that is for the better or worse, and while no notes apps comes pre-loaded on Android device.... Again except galaxy note & note II. Disappointed at phoneArena article for the first time. please remember that the note1 already sold over 10 million unit and the note 2 is about to follow the trend and even higher.

for me google drive is the most complete in editing but limitation of 5gb make it worse than everyone or catch. Catch is simple and has password for free while evernote must pay for it. I use netbook so split evernote screen also ruin my experience with editing

One key feature of the paid version of Evernote that you missed is that it runs an OCR engine against your pictures and Skitch drawings (and in Windows you can use digital inking). Want to remember a restaurant? Take a picture of the sign or menu and it's stored as a graphic with whatever (searchable) text Evernote can find.

I like Catch notes on My galaxy note 10.1. It's better than Evernote in my opinion because of its ability to resize text unlike Evernote (too small letters). Also I like simple way of adding tags by using #. Another useful feature is the split screen. The Evernote's hiding panels are very inconvenient.

My comment is directed at this phrase: "…do not have is a built-in note taking application, in contrast with the iPhone." The comparison, from the start, was against the iPhone's 'Notes' application. Previously owning an iPhone, I'd describe the 'Notes' program as more akin to a notepad. And, it's not a 'Reminders.' So, PhoneArena, where were your comparisons to such a simple, paid, no drawing, no recording, no frills, no adds, no subscription, no nonsense permissions, lined notepad program? Catch Notes and Evernote? Sorry, those are too complex.

HTCs as well as Samsungs have built in note taking apps. Although one of my big favorites was always Widget Notes - Whiteboard Pro (Pro version is not free but has a lot of options and the best part of this app is that it's a great widget ;) Though now I'm using only S Note on my Note 2 and it's page widget, but at least for the widget part Widget Notes are way better.

I use this app for all my reminders from to-do lists to voice notes if I see something I want to remember while I'm on the go. It's very easy to use and easy on the eyes. I haven't had any trouble with it. As a doctoral student I have several things going on at once and this helps me to keep it all organized.

If you're looking for ease of use, efficiency and the best way to organize your notes, Memability is by far the best. Perfect to handle and organize lists of items/notes. Plus the design is really neat!

One of the best apps for making notes or rather urgent to-does is "Nota"...Google it up on Play Shop. It keeps your to-do note in your notification tray and you can't swipe it away until you do it or well, you lie that you did it. It really increases my productivity xD
