2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 10 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Better ergonomics, and slightly more compact body than the original Galaxy Note
  • S Pen is longer and thicker now, and feels much more ergonomic in the hand (compared to the original Note)
  • 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

Display

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

Software

  • S Pen apps and features are quite useful
  • Silky smooth Android interface

Performance

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

Camera

  • Very good camera

Audio

  • Excellent loudspeaker
  • Excellent call quality

Battery

  • Very good battery life

More

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