"Sweetspot"

I got this phone almost a month before the official release date through a college acquaintance who is working at Samsung in Texas. This phone literally has millions of features and surprisingly it is very easy to use many of the essential ones; but I gotta say it may take a little time to adjust to the sophisticatedness of the phone especially if you are coming from iPhone or feature phone. The screen is very large - I can't stress this enough - THE SCREEN IS HUGE. I know a few people who have bad experience with the size of the first Galaxy Note simply because it is not easy to grip such large phone with one hand and people end up dropping it. The GN2 has a slightly larger screen but Samsung has done a very good job of improving the ergonomics - I do not have a big hand but I don't think I will drop it because of the size. The pen detects and writes better than any of the stylus pen available for tablet or pad devices. The battery lasts very long - unless you are watching HD movies with maximum brightness all day, you won't even need the extra battery that comes with the phone. I go to work at 9 AM and come home at 1 or 2 AM and my phone still has about 15% battery left. I simply charge it while I sleep and I am good to go for the next day. The phone itself is flawless - probably the closest thing to perfection for the lack of a better word though many of the additional features are largely dependent on preference (SUPER AMOLED vs. Retina, 5.5-inch screen vs 4 inch'ish screen, fixed vs removable battery etc
