Verizon Wireless has made Android 4.3 Jelly Bean available to its variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. In addition to the system update, the new operating system brings with it support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The update makes a wide number of improvements to the performance of the Note II, including battery life for Exchange users, Google Maps, Wi-Fi, and voicemail notifications. Apps can now be moved to the SD card. The PenUp and Multi-window functions have been updated to the same version that runs on the Note 3, the Sound and Shot feature works better, and Bluetooth Low Energy has been enhanced. The update is being pushed out over the air in phases.
Verizon's version of Samsung's behemoth impresses with good call quality, excellent LTE 4G performance, and exceptional battery life. This Android superphone has a lot going for it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II doesn't have any U.S. carriers yet, but Phone Scoop spent some time with it anyway.
