"I can't complain that it didn't match my expectations."5.0 starson by theappers
Pros: 1. - Large, amazing, Gorilla glass display
2. - Excellent performance
3. - Nice camera
4. - 64gb external card slot
5. - Pretty good, removable battery
6. - Marvelous design
7. - S Pen
8. - Premium build
Cons: - It kinda overheats when playing games [when I play NFS Most Wanted or Asphalt 7 or The Bard's tale or any other game that requires good performance, after an hour or so, it starts overheating a bit under the camera on the back]
Summary: 1. The big thing about the Note II, must be the screen. I never liked staring at small screens... for me the large screen it's not a drawback, it's what I've searched for. It really is beautiful, HD, making the Note II experience awesome.
2. About the performance, it works out tremendously fast. If an app crushes, when you press the home button, you don't have to wait at all.
3. The camera takes pretty neat pictures for a phone. The video, as well, is outstanding.
4. With the 64gb card on, I don't feel the need of carrying a laptop, to have a decent amount of storage with me.
5. If you constantly use it, then you'll have to charge it daily.
6. The thing I remember when I unboxed it, was thinking 'Damn this thing is nice...'. On the internet it doesn't look so eye-catching.
8. It does feel very good in the hand.
For some people, they see it awkward to have a phone that big. Get used to it... it's the future [prophetic moment :> ]. For me, I really like it.
