"The smartphone I have been waiting for." By TYLER HELL on December 7, 2012
In today's smartphone market more and more people are using their smartphones for data consumption. With the Samsung Galaxy Note II you get the entire package and more. With a 5.5 inch screen you have plenty of screen so you dont have to squint your eyes. Sure the screen is big but who wants to watch anything on a small screen anyways? I personally think its a manageable size. The S pen is a much needed function as well. I allways thought getting rid of stylist was a mistake. But with the S pen Samsung has added much needed functionality to the stylist. With improved handwriting recognition it's never been easier to draw or just take a note. One of my other favorite functions is the S beam. To be able to share video and pictures by just touching your Samsung Note II to another Samsung Note II or Samsung Galaxy S III. Is just a fun easy way to share. And who doesn't like that? The Samsung Galaxy Note II wins hands down in my book just on useful features alone.
