As we celebrated week 59 of the Official Smartphone Rankings, we realized that the Samsung Galaxy Note II has not only been on the charts for quite some time, but it has also remained in the top three for weeks. One of the most popular smartphones of 2012, it continues to dominate well into 2013.
"The best phone/media consumer/productivity assistant out there...until the Note III comes out." By H. WALLBANGER on April 21, 2013
See my marks in the graded categories, and there are tons of reviews complete with video demonstration to provide better than I could in limited white space. What's apparent is that people with the newest and latest toy have greater motivation to participate in the weekly votes. Face it...the Galaxy Note Series revolutionized the mobile phone industry to the same extent that the iPhone and iPad did during their prime/heyday. The Note 2 is a genuine tool which, after using for a short while, if you lost it, you'd only then realize what other phones out there DON'T do. Too many functions and...efficiencies to list here. I won't stick with the Note 2 forever...because i'm sick in the head that way, needing a new toy every few months, but i'm on my THIRD Note 2, if that tells you anything.
