Review Samsung Galaxy Note II GT-N7100 Smartphone

 

Revamped phablet. The sleeves are too short or it tweaks at the w

Good workmanship; Very big screen; Powerful platform; Viewing angle stable, high-contrast screen; Very long battery runtime; Fairly good camera; Wi-Fi for 2.4 and 5 GHz

Mediocre choice of materials; Averagely bright screen; Slight bluish cast; Limited mobility; No LTE

The Note II competes with tablets and smartphones alike. Contenders are found in the Galaxy S3 and Note 10.1 from Samsung itself. Merely Apple's iPhone 5 can really compete in performance.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Review

 

Last year at IFA, Samsung introduced a new class of handset with the launch of its original Galaxy Note, smartphones with huge displays (5-inch+) that we internally call “phablets”. Its successor, the Galaxy Note 2 features a larger display (5.5”), [...]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is one of the best 4G LTE device that we had the opportunity to test (the LG Optimus G, the iPhone 5 or the Galaxy S3 would be contenders for that title), and the combination of a large 5.5” screen, LTE speeds and a good...

Samsung Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100) Review

 

This is a big one! Quite literally as it turns out as Samsung continues to push the limits of what we consider an acceptable size for a smartphone. The Note II or GT-N7100 polishes off most of the shortcomings of the Note N7000 along with a little...

The S Pen works based on Wacom’s inductive technology so you never need batteries for it. It’s also gotten a lot more sensitive to finer inputs so you can draw with a lot more precision, similar to the Note 10.1. The software is also a lot better this...

Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon)

 

With its large display, improved pen features and epic battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Note II for Verizon continues to be the gold standard for big-screen phones.

Large display with sharp details and bright colors; Epic battery life; Useful pen features; Dual-view multitasking option; Strong graphics and performance; Blistering 4G LTE speed; Fast camera

Size can be overwhelming; Display dimmer than competing phones; Design has unnecessary logos

Click to EnlargeFrom its huge 5.5-inch display to the improved S Pen and fast quad-core CPU, Samsung took everything we loved about the original Note and supersized it while providing the longest battery life you can get on a 4G LTE phone. The...

Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Galaxy Note II for Verizon Wireless ($299.99 direct) is many things, but above all, it's the most phone there is. It gives you more screen, more processor, and more OS than almost any other phone out there. If you think other phones are too small,...

Massive high-definition screen. Fast quad-core processor. Includes a pressure-sensitive stylus and well-designed note-taking and drawing software. Runs Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" out of the box. Good call quality. Stellar battery life

Very large. A few minor hiccups in gaming performance. Samsung's heavy UI layer isn't to everyone's taste

With a fast quad-core processor, a big, gorgeous display, and features galore, the Samsung Galaxy Note II delivers almost everything a huge-screen smartphone should—just make sure you look at the HTC Droid DNA first.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile)

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note II for T-Mobile offers a gorgeous 5.5-inch display, innovative pen features and killer firepower, but you'll pay more versus other carriers.

Gorgeous 5.5-inch display; Powerful processor; Snappy camera; Improved S Pen; Very long battery life

No LTE yet; Pricey; Size makes it a bit unwieldy

Click to EnlargeWith a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Display, quad-core CPU, improved S Pen and industry-leading battery life, the Galaxy Note II from Samsung is easily one of the best phones on T-Mobile. But should you get it from this carrier? The...

Massive high-definition screen. Fast quad-core processor. Includes a pressure-sensitive stylus and well-designed note-taking and drawing software. Runs Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" out of the box. Good call quality. No bloatware

Very large. A few minor hiccups in gaming performance. Very limited 4G LTE coverage

With a fast quad-core processor, a big, gorgeous display, and features galore, the Samsung Galaxy Note II delivers everything a huge-screen smartphone should.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (Sprint)

 

With a bigger screen, faster processor and sharper S Pen, the only thing that can hold back the Galaxy Note II is Sprint's 3G-only network.

Strong graphics and performance; Large display with sharp details and bright colors; Fast camera; Improved S Pen

Size can be somewhat overwhelming; Slow 3G speeds; A tad pricey

Click to EnlargeWith a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Display, quad-core CPU, improved S Pen and industry-leading battery life, the Galaxy Note II from Samsung has the hallmarks of one of the all-time-greatest phones. Unfortunately, Sprint's 3G-only...

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

 

When Samsung first debuted the Galaxy Note smartphone, there were plenty of detractors who said that the device was too big to be a phone and no one wanted a stylus, anyway. Throughout the past year, the Note has proven the exact opposite to the tune...

Design minimizes bulk, keeping this big phone slim-seeming ; Android 4.1 Jelly Bean available at launch ; Camera app includes robust feature set ; User-replaceable battery ; Improved S Pen functionality ; Speedy peformance ; Available on all major...

TouchWiz gets in the way of Jelly Bean too much ; Some S Pen features only work in Samsung apps ; Display resolution lower than previous generation

For the people who crave larger screens and don't want a tablet, the Note 2 is the best choice available right now.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile) Review

 

In the Samsung Galaxy Note II we've got an experience like no other – similar to the first Galaxy Note with its massive display and S-Pen action, but here with processing power and software just great enough to carve for itself a unique place in the...

If the size is a boon to you, you might as well not even try it. If you want to have the highest level of mobile computing on the market right now with the finest-tuned amalgamation of both software and hardware in one device, the Samsung Galaxy Note...
