Good: Screen size, processing power, features
Bad: No 4G version?
Comment: I've question marked the "No 4G version" as I'm confused...the GN2 was released on the 1st of October. Now they are saying the release date is the 15th of October. Are there two versions of this phone (4G and not 4G) and why would one purchase the not 4G enabled version (assuming they cost the same)?
Good: Size and S-Pen
Bad: Can't think of anything bad about this device
Comment: I've been waiting for this phone for months and all the features I saw on youtube don't disappoint me. It's perfect for me, I'm a graphic designer and I love the design. Can't wait to get it!!!
Good: everything regarding this phone is awesome
Bad: Nothing bad at all. maybe later i might find some.
Comment: Best ever ultimate smartphone + Tablet i have seen
Good: Silky smooth, great multitasker
Bad: Samsung's own apps suck, camera isn't brilliant
Comment: Got mine yesterday. Very happy.
Comment: The screen uses I different sub pixel arrangment that the S3 and note 1 its not pentile it has the full sub pixel arrangment.You can set the keyboard to one handed left or right operation
Good: Screen is a joy to use, fast reliable and a welcomed change from ios
Bad: Only 3G variant currently available and Samsung slow to get out grey version
Comment: A big phone and not for everyone but if you like the functionality of a tablet but need the portability of a phone you might want to give it a go. 3 days of use and I have to say I am loving this phone after moving from my iPhone 4.
Good: big screen
Comment: king of phons..
Good: Screen size
Bad: Screen size
Comment: Had a longer play with this. Of all the android phones around this is the upgrade I'm most tempted by. It looks great, is fast, has plenty of screen space and whilst I can't see myself using the stylus (I didn't use it on the note 1) it's a nice gimmick that might come in handy. However, seeing the news about the google nexus 5 phone, I'm going to wait for that - looks like the screen resolution of the nexus 5 will blow pretty much every other phone out of the water. And having a nexus with raw android is something I prefer in preference to supplier overlays (get updates quicker!).
Good: It can do what no other phone can and more..
Bad: Nothing as far as I can see...
Comment: Once you use a note for a week you get used to the size...and then no other phone will do...
I bought an s3 but let it go for the note 2...
Trust me there is no better device then the note 2..
Good: SIZE and Pen
Bad: Price only
Comment: Please stop with all this its so 'huge crap'. Who decided what sizes a phone should be (Apple perhaps?) If you want a small device for handbags or have girls hands ...look else where. The large size allows you to view full webpages, comfortably watch movies, photos, let alone the pen functions for sketching and notes. etc all with complete ease. I love my Note 1 and will wait for the Note 3 before I change up as still in my contract period. If you want something smaller get something else, I love the size and thats that !
