Samsung GALAXY Note II 

Released November, 2012
  • Android 4.4.2
  • 4G
  • 5.5"
  • Quad core 1.6 GHz
The button on the S Pen now has a ribbed pattern, making it easier to find by touch (the old one is flat and flush against the surface, which made it tough to use).
by GSM Arena (Aug, 2012)
More important than the geeky PenTile vs RGB argument is that the screen is also much brighter now, and might easily be the brightest AMOLED on a Samsung device yet, which, coupled with the low screen reflectance, makes for an excellent outdoor visibility, and the automatic brightness adjustment works like a charm.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung GALAXY Note II


8.0
Colors are very saturated compared to IPS displays, but many folks enjoy lots of color saturation along with the high contrast and deep blacks of Samsung's Super AMOLED HD displays.

9.0
Other than those, you get the usual wide viewing angles, extreme contrast, and saturated colors you would with other Super AMOLED displays, making the phone the best handset out there for enjoying video with this screen size.

9.0
Album art is displayed beautifully, and there is even something wacky called Music Square, where you touch a part of the square to choose what genre of music you want to listen to.

Overall

8.6 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

At 264 ppi pixel density is reduced from the 306 ppi GS III, but the Super AMOLED HD display still looks sharp.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2012)
And with that huge display for a viewfinder, it made the whole experience so much more enjoyable.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2013)
It's a brilliant use of the big display, though it still makes most sense with 10" tablets.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2012)

Carrier

The app drawer has three view modes - Customizable grid (where you can freely rearrange icons), Alphabetical grid (if you think you can find apps quicker if they're alphabetized) and Alphabetical list (this one makes shortcuts easy to hit, but isn't very space efficient).
by GSM Arena (Sep, 2012)
You can grab one for either Sprint or AT&T.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2012)
We ran our tests on a T-Mobile device and witnessed similar performance to the N7100.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2012)

Apps

Those looking for a direct comparison to Siri will find the quality of the service (ie the actual voice recognition) much more accurate on Apple's product.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2013)
We tweeted a dozen or so times, sent one email, made about 30 mins worth of phone calls, shot 36 photographs and 11 videos and had Wi-Fi and GPS enabled constantly.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2013)
Google Voice Actions can handle stuff like sending messages (SMS or email), initiating a voice call, asking for directions, taking a note or opening a site.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2012)

Video

Lastly, Samsung's flashy floating video player is on board, so you can play a video in a resizable, transparency-adjustable window on top of any app or the home screen.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2012)
Air View is present in loads of different areas - for example, we loved the fact that you can hover over the timeline in a video and it will continue playing, but give you a preview of the spot you're hovering over.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2013)
You can use pinch zoom to adjust the size of the video.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2012)

Battery

Powering it is a 3,100mAh battery, which Samsung reckons will provide standby time of some 890 hours on 3G.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2013)
And yes, the whopping 3100 mAh Lithium Ion Polymer battery is removable: go Samsung!
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2012)
For drawing, it's simple enough, and will provide you with hours of fun.
