Overall, the Galaxy Note 2 is a super-awesome smartphone. With a quad-core Exynos CPU, the device simply rocks it. In our review we said:
“The Note 2 looks and feels nicer than the first Galaxy Note. The massive, 5.5-inch display is a 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED beast, and while it’s not as pixel-dense as the display on the iPhone 4S and other HD screen phones, I think its size makes up for it.
Inside, the Galaxy Note 2 has 2GB RAM and a 1.6GHz quad-core processor. It’s all powered by a 3,100mAh battery. Is it fast? Hell yeah. Does battery life suffer as a result? Hell no. As a performance machine, the Galaxy Note 2 is a monster. I didn’t experience a single hiccup or bit of lag in my week of testing the device.
This slab of a phone runs the latest version of Android, which is 4.1 Jelly Bean for those who care. This means you won’t have any issues with app compatibility, and you get a bunch of cool Android features, like Google Now. Layered on top of Android 4.1.1, to be exact, is Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
Anyway, if you’ve ever played with a Galaxy S3, you should feel right at home. Otherwise, it’s pretty intuitive: Samsung includes a number of widgets that help you automate tasks or see info like weather and social network updates at a glance. And the notification pane has quick access to brightness adjustments and things like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Screen Rotation toggles. I wish the iPhone had these things.”
