2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • Good display - natural color reproduction, good viewing angles, and good sunlight legibility
  • New improved TouchWiz UI on top of Android is clean, and functional

  • Decent camera - decent images with natural color reproduction, good contrast levels, accurate white balance, and a good amount of detail
  • Very good battery life
  • 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)
  • Gigantic screen
  • Absolutely stunning AMOLED display (possibly the best display on a smartphone to date)
  • S Pen apps and features are quite useful
  • Silky smooth Android interface
  • Super fast quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM
  • Very good camera

2-minute Review [Negatives]

No Major Negatives!

  • 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
