"Best Smartphone for those who can handle the size."5.0 starson by m0n0lyth
Pros: Everything... seriously, everything.
Cons: This user was unable to identify a single con.
Summary: Lets start with the most notable feature, the massive screen. This thing is a beauty! The resolution is sharp and clear and the image quality is out of this world when it comes to phones. Everything is so vivid and bold!
Next, the power. This device is more powerful than many laptops out today, and it shows. From the first time you boot this thing, you can instantly recognize how incredibly fast it is. The interface is so liquid smooth you might just find yourself scrolling through homescreens in a trance. Handles tasks like a champ and runs any mobile game you can throw at it without breaking a sweat. I though my Moto Atrix was powerful, this thing has that beat by far.
S Pen. I never thought I'd be one of those guys that uses a stylus. What Samsung has done with this device is genius. The airview feature is extremely useful. The accuracy of the stylus is impeccable! My handwriting actually looks good on an electronic device for once!
Sound quality - This came as a huge surprise and not many people mention it. The sound that comes from this devices speaker is pristine and rich. Yes it's a mobile device and it's certainly not a Bose system, but for what it is, it is definitely worth noting.
Build quality - The construction of the Note 2 is outstanding. It is an all plastic body but it feels very solid. No creaking or cheap plastic noises when holding it. Overall it feels extremely well-built while still maintaining a bit of sophisticated delicacy due to it's thinness and larger dimensions. When you hold this phone, you know you're holding onto something special.
Size - For many this may seem like a con but I believe if anyone gives this phone 1 day, they'll be used to the size and loving it. I wasn't phased by the size at first though I could sense its largeness. After a day I was used to it and any other phone just seems too small. I tried to use my Atrix 4g and it felt like a little toy.
I say with absolute confidence that this is the best mass-produced, consumer-level smartphone that money can currently buy. HTC has some comparable models but they don't really come close when you dig a bit deeper. The iPhone has lacked innovation for the past few generations and this device, without a doubt, blows iphone5 out of the water. The Galaxy Note 2 is worth every single penny.
