Aaron's back for a day 16 update as part of the Samsung Galaxy Note II Challenge.  The smartphone continues to impress thanks to a fast quad-core CPU, large battery, and gorgeous display.  The S Pen features have been vastly improved, and are great for everyday tasks.  That said, the size is becoming an issue yet again, as the phone doesn't fit well in the pocket.  Is this the best phone to consider this holiday season?

Susan Hugus I will have no problem with the size of the Note 2 since I never have any pockets. I really wish a small phone bag were designed to hold a phone and a charging unit that one could carry. It has to be easy to get into, and I do not want to carry my phone in my purse since it is too hard to find when it rings.
