Good: Ever thing
Comment: Fantastic mobile phone.....just one -ve thing, which is battery draining at about 6-7 % per hour on standby mode...and when running music player or surfing on internet the battery drops after every 3 - 4 mins per percentage interval......4 min surfing = 1 % battery drop....the total battery timing is about 6 - 7 hours on ful time surfing and listening music....so little disagree with Battery review by CNET.....samsung should do something about this problem
Good: the speed of the apps open and no lag even multiple apps is open
Bad: nothing so far.
Comment: The screen is big enough to watch a 16:9 movie and the headset is awesome with the virtual 7.1 channel. Movie while doing other thing is not a dream anymore, now i can watch movie while sms or browsing. Nice. Should get one of this instead of Note 10.1. Same feature yet smaller and compact. Never regret to get one of these.
Good: big screen
Comment: nice i want one !
i love samsung and i am never going to buy something which is not samsung!!!!
love you samsung!
Good: Jelly bean
Comment: Looks the part!!
Comment: Looks a good Android.
Good: Everything - battery, graphics, speed, S Pen, User Interface
Bad: S Voice doesn't work properly and is not accurate (Google Now is really good but cannot be used for everything) and some S Pen applications are complicated
Comment: The best phone I have ever used in my life.
This phone looks big but you will get use to it in a week. When I first holded the device, It felt big in the hand but now it doesn't feel big at all.
I always thought the iPhone and iOS was better than anything, but I was completely wrong. I didn't know Android was so amazing. It has so many features that iOS doesn't have and the UI is a beauty.
I'm so happy that I purchased the Galaxy Note 2 and not the iPhone 5.
Bad: S Voice doesn't work work properly and is not accurate (Google Now is really good but cannot be used for everything) and some S Pen applications are complicated
Good: Great S Pen, S memo, S planner!
Bad: Screen a little smaller about 5.0 inches
Comment: Overall a good phone
Good: AweSOME screen :)
Bad: complicated s pen applications !
Comment: Blazing fast c.p.u.
Jelly bean out of the box :) though highly customized by sansung .
Spen apss sucks .
Size is not an issue for me , fits well in my hands ..
Ultra responsive screen .
Only problem concerned to size is , it does not fit to my car cup holder ;)
Atlast excellent device , if size is not an issue go for it , better than s3 . Cheers :)
Comment: I compare this to the LG Intuition, only because those are the only phablets on the market I'm looking at. Samsung's is top-notch but if I don't watch video, can anyone tell me why the Intuition isn't viable? Both run on AT&T's 4G LTE and that's my biggest concern, along with note-taking -- for me, graphics -- capability. My graphics work here in Atlanta is easier with mobility.
