I like this phone but it's a bit big when making actual phone calls. The screen is beautiful, the apps are fun and the camera is on par with what you'd expect. The stylus apps are fun to play with but I don't see them being actually used much personally. Making calls on this phone is tricky, and it doesn't always fit in my hand comfortably. I've been a Samsung customer for some time and I've progressed through the galaxy phones from the original galaxy, the galaxy 4g, the galaxy s2 and now the note. I've played with the galaxy s3, and the s4. The note and it's large screen is for a specific user and mine was given to me so I don't know that it's a good fit for me, but if you're looking for something between a phone and a tablet, this is a great way to go. I would say that the battery life is much better and very handy to have, it seems the large screen allows for a large battery compartment behind it. Some of the camera features are new and fun too, but all in all I'd say they are pretty standard for the Samsung galaxy phone line.

    Comments about Samsung Galaxy Note II Smartphone:

    Have had this phone for a few years now. It has run perfectly everyday without fail. Never any lagging app usage. Tons of memory. Has been dropped, dropped in water used by small children and still runs perfectly. Have thousands of pictures and videos stored but it doesn't slow anything down. Pictures come out clear and camera easy to use for anyone. Easy screen mirroring features to put them on tv. Am finally upgrading to the note 8, but am keeping this as back up!

        Comments about Samsung Galaxy Note II Smartphone:

        This phone is super easy to use. I have had it for almost a year. I love it. I have also been using the stylus alot more for my new job. It's easier to write on the screen than to carry around a notebook and pen. The only con is its too big to fit in most work pants. I had do buy cargo pants to fit it.

            This is a masterpiece and with STANDARD micro-usb jack and big screen!
            I am totally happy with the unit. Battery life is LONG and s-pen is something to adore. Android 4.1 as it is is no point to discuss, it is great amd screen is bright and vivid. It has lower resolution in PPI than bitten fruit devices, but you see no pixels and it is fine. Photoes are very beatuful on this screen and camer quality is like in point&click cameras. And you can edit your pics righ away with s-pen. It works so smooth.
