The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is perfect for me, even though the Note 3 was just recently announced and will be released soon, for me, the Note 2 is perfect for my everyday needs, games, watching movies, play music, browse the internet, etc... For those who wants to buy a Note phablet, if budget-wise, go for Note 2 now since the price will decrease thanks to Note 3.

All Around Companion
charlesph has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Almost all apps run smoothly if anything crashes it's the app itself, like twitter, but the phone never slowed down in every scenario, event, task everything, it's great!
Super sturdy build nothing creaks or bends, very nice. Can get the fastest available signal in the area each and every time, usually it's the networks problem. Calls are great not so loud though just right, but hardly make anyway. Super fast internet, if anything it's the carrier. Plays almost all types of media amazing! Camera shoots every scene nicely except some club scenes. Smooth performance but it's kinda having slight unresponsiveness with Minion Rush whenever i get past 60k. Works each and everyday, texts, image editing, uploads, no lapses so nice. Has a superb keyboard, never attempted to change it. Display is power hungry so i zero out the brightness all the time except when i'm out in the sun. Battery last the whole day of medium to heavy usage, only problems is that it takes a while to charge at least around 3.5-4.5 hrs coming from 10% or lower.

best device I've owned top date

It is truly a phablet and will fulfill the functions of both a tablet and cellular phone. It's actually an extraordinary deal when you think about it. If you are searching for a tablet and a phone then you need search no more.

Samsung put too many potential in this phone, amazing display, sound, call quality and hardware.
The main drawback is the camera that could be better for a phone as good as this one.
I would have loved to see a metal casing for the note 2 cuz this would make it the best smartphone ever.

Absolutely amazed of the speed. Everything is working smoother than on any phone I've used before. In my workflow I've often to use the stylus which tip is great for handwriting and taking quick notes with S-Note.

All things is ok but the display need more work that's right it's good but when I was compared with other phones. I think it's need more resolution. And the best thing in this phone is evry bad things in note they fixed it with awesome work.

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:
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.

The G-sensor doesn't seem to work when the screen is off.
I am using Note 2 Galaxy Samsung.
I tried Justflip to flip to turn on the screen. The screen wasn't on at all.
Please tell me if the is a fix for this bug.

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

One of the best phone we have ever tested. Superb built quality, awsome sound, enough power for amazing multi tasking, Large and vivid screen. best for reading books and watching movies. In a country having electricity problem (Pakistan) battery life seems to be bit low. otherwise Galaxy Note 2 is 2nd to none. phonemart.pk highly recommend this phone

Amazing phone. Was a bit concerned about the size. Now that I've been using it for a while, I've gotten accustomed to it, And I have to admit; everything else seems a bit mediocre.
Though everything is working flawlessly, I keep looking forward to the 4.2 update.
Best phone i ever had
vivith has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The best phone i ever had. Very fast and good response. Very interesting mobile. Highly recommended. But for the high end phone the design could have been better. Other than this best phone. Not as big as u seeing in the images.
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 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
