ppatrickstarr's review of the Samsung Galaxy Note II (GSM)

original version, submitted May 22, 2013, 3:37 PM:

Best phone I've ever had so far

Coming from an iPhone I was extremely happy on how much more I can do. Run two video apps at a time, very very quick processor and most amazing screen ever, nothing else compares side by side in HD new movie trailers etc.

Pros

Love the big screen, very accurate with texting and using the stylist. You can even use it too as if your writing a letter and the note will right it out as a text. pretty cool.

Processor is crazy fast compared to iPhones

Reading anything in font is a lot easier on the eyes due to the big screen

Battery life is awesome! I use it all day for work/school and its not even in power saving mode

Galaxy S-Voice is very accurate along with google voice search

Camera is so good that I actually forget its only 8 mp and the features are very useful such as timer (which iPhones don't have) burst shots and more

Cons

Screen has a disadvantage of being so big, it's hard to text or do things privately. I'm always having someone over my shoulder or side looking at my phone. Also sometimes when talking on the phone, my faced will somehow navigate its way to opening random apps

Does to have group messaging like the iPhone iMessage or Blackberry BBM, I have to actually reply to each and every single person. Although I was told they have an app for it

Overall I love the phone more than any of my previous phones. Treo, Sony, Samsung, Motorola etc being that used to work for t-mobile, I recommend trying this phone out cause who knows you might just actually get it! :)

The speakers are also loud and clear compared to the iPhone.

Cons

Screen has a disadvantage of being so big, it's hard to text or do things privately. I'm always having someone over my shoulder or side looking at my phone. Also sometimes when talking on the phone, my face will somehow navigate its way to opening random apps and because the screen is so sensitive, it closes or does things without my intending to do so even when I'm just holding it.

Doesn't have group messaging like the iPhone iMessage or Blackberry BBM, I have to actually reply to each and every single person. Although I was told they have an app for it.

Quad Core Processor is awesomely fast! I don't know of any other cellphone that is currently on the market with a quad core chip or at least the US to compete.
