Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 10 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Better ergonomics, and slightly more compact body than the original Galaxy Note

  • Gigantic screen

  • Absolutely stunning AMOLED display (possibly the best display on a smartphone to date)

  • S Pen is longer and thicker now, and feels much more ergonomic in the hand (compared to the original Note)

  • S Pen apps and features are quite useful

  • Silky smooth Android interface

  • Super fast quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM

  • Super fast web browser

  • Very good camera

  • Excellent loudspeaker

  • Great music player with 'Music Square' that places your songs in a mood matrix

  • Excellent call quality

  • Very good battery life

What we didn't

  • As with the original Note, the main disadvantage of the gigantic phone is the same as its main advantage - its huge screen - you can forget about pocket comfort and one-handed operation
