Samsung Galaxy Note II 16GB Reviews

"It has a larger 5.5in screen, a faster, quad-core processor and runs the newest version of Google's Android platform, 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Galaxy Note II also happens to be one of the best Android phones we've ever used." 4.8/5 Stars

"It's running the brand spanking new, up to the minute 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Android -- one of the first devices to do so out of the box. That means you get to play with Google Now, the intuitive new feature that offers suggestions to the questions you haven't asked yet. So you get potential directions, travel data and events based on your location and your past choices. It's still developing, but the more you use it, the better it gets." 9/10

"As for getting used to such a large phone...our iPhone 4S felt like a toy and far too small after just a few days with the Note 2. It's amazing how quickly you get used to it, and nothing smaller will do." 9/10

"The Samsung Galaxy Note had a frankly amazing screen as it was, so would have taken some beating. But Samsung clearly likes a challenge. The size has gone up slightly from 5.3 inches to 5.5. And although pixel density is reduced, we didn't notice it. This is the bright, vivid Samsung Super AMOLED panel that we all know and love - and what a beauty it is, replicating colours amazingly and immaculately." 4.5/5 Stars

"Things get very cool when you look at what Samsung has added, both in terms of motion detection and gestures. Like many phones, you can turn the Note over to silence it when it's ringing. Also, rather brilliantly, if you have a contact on-screen, then simply lifting the phone to your ear will call that contact. There's a little buzz of vibration to confirm this is happening. Our favourite feature though, has to be the gesture to pick up the phone. When you do this, by reaching toward the handset, the screen illuminates telling you if you have missed calls, new text messages and the level of your battery. " 4.5/5 Stars

"With an even bigger screen than the gigantic Galaxy Note and a superbly powerful quad-core processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the ideal smart phone for anyone who values a spacious screen above all else." 4.5/5 Stars

"With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean working at the heart of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, this giant smartphone is impressively up-to-date. It's also very quick. " 4.5/5 Stars

"The Galaxy Note 2 is a premium smartphone tablet hybrid like the original Galaxy Note but the screen is bigger - 5.5 inch - although the physical size of the smartphone isn’t, meaning a better edge to edge screen. It’s surprisingly light like the Galaxy S3 and the new and improved S Pen stylus (it’s got a rubber end for easier browsing) fits securely in the bottom of what is, essentially, the biggest phone in the world."

"We enjoyed a very good call quality on the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The earpiece emits strong volume, to the extent that we had to tone it down halfway, so it didn’t blast our eardrum, and the voices sounded clean as a whistle. On the other end they could hear us very well, too, with the sound having more than enough volume, and the dual microphone noise-cancelling setup relayed our voices loud and clear, with no audible distortions." 4.5/5 Stars

"Relative to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note II is a clear and unequivocal upgrade. It’s now more powerful, lasts even longer, and ships with the best software that Samsung has yet put on an Android device. It doesn’t feel as characterful or quirky as the original Galaxy Note, and it is indeed festooned with superfluous apps and software presets, but those are small hurdles you can either disable or avoid. " 8.5/10

"The handwriting recognition in particular is much better than the original Note’s and now features throughout much more of the interface. For example, if you activate the Google search bar with the stylus equipped it’ll let you write your search in a pop up box, likewise for text messages and so on. But mainly it’s how much better the Note 2 is at letting you write smoothly and accurately – it even recognises when you rest your palm on the screen and doesn’t allow it to interrupt you." 4/5 Stars

"Most of the women I spoke with had no trouble fitting the Note 2 into a bag or purse, but questioned the phone's usability and their ability to reach the corners of the screen one-handed." 4/5 Stars

"The 8-megapixel camera captures clear, vivid photos and records 1080p high-definition video -- on par with the original Note. You can focus with the touch of the screen, and illuminate dim environments with the glaringly-powerful LED flash." 4/5 Stars
