Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ( AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon)
Samsung took a similar no-holds-barred approach with the Galaxy Note 2 as it did with the Galaxy S3. Not only was this massive device launched on five U.S. mobile carriers, it packed a bevy of powerful components including quad-core processing, 4G LTE, plus a stunning 5.5-inch OLED screen. Also equipped with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the tablet-like handset featured the company's S Pen stylus input device and an impressive 8-megapixel camera as well.
CNET review bottom line: Samsung delivers a powerful, boundary-pushing device that gets a lot right. Yet its complicated features and high price raise questions about its purpose.
