"Great Device!" By Timeka Vershae on June 9, 2013
Seven months later and I must admit that I still love my Note 2. For me, the S-pen is not just a gimmick and I use this quite frequently. For instance, I use the S-pen to take notes at work and in church. I find this quite convenient, not to mention it also reduces the amount of things I have to carry. As for the size of this device, it is still rather large and hard to carry around. For example, it's too big for my pockets and takes up a lot space in my small purse. Thus, often times I just carry it in my hand and have almost dropped it on a few occasions (thank God for my quick reflexes). Nonetheless, I still really like the device for surfing the web, reading emails, watching videos/ movies, note taking, and many of its other features. I would highly recommend this device if you don't mind its size. Hence, I think it's safe to say that the Note 2 will be my primary device for some time- well until the release of the Note 3!
