WOW! After an amazing turnout of voters during the Official Smartphone Rankings one year anniversary week, the Samsung Galaxy Note II skyrocketed back into the #1 position. With 1600 votes the Note II crushed the rest of the competition.
"Samsung Galaxy Note 2 FTW!!" by MAURICE PAOLINO JR. on March 10, 2013
Before actually handling a Note device at all, I was afraid of the size of the device. Holding a 5.5 inch smartphone to your face just didn't seem comfortable or reasonable to me at the time, but after some play with the device, it's actually very doable. Batterly life is tremendous. I'm sure you could easily get through a full day with plenty of charge left, and of course the multi-window feature is a great selling point.
Battery Life 5/5
Apps & Media Support 5/5
Reception & Call Quality 5/5
