The Samsung Galaxy Note II is an Android Jelly Bean driven hybrid between a smartphone and a tablet. Its key features are a 5.5-inch large HD Super AMOLED display and an integrated active stylus, called S Pen. Assisted by multi-window view and many other smart features, multitasking becomes the Samsung Galaxy Note II’s middle name.

For this review, we purchased the model GT-N7105, which is equipped with Qualcomm 4G, also known as LTE. While the review unit came with Telekom (T-Mobile) branding, we will be giving away a brand new unit without branding.

Introducing the Samsung Galaxy Note II

This slightly oversized smartphone is intended for people who want to work on the go or be creative with their phone. The large 5.5-inch display makes it easier to browse websites or read text. It also provides enough screen space for viewing and using two apps side by side. Multitasking is a key benefit of the Galaxy Note II.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Note II’s S Pen is much more than just a handy tool for the stubby fingered or the creative person with great handwriting. Far from the type of stylus Steve Jobs despised so much, it truly interacts with the phone in ways that your fingers just can’t.

With its Galaxy Note II, Samsung has carved out a niche for itself. Other than the Note II’s predecessor, which measures 5.3 inches, there presently is no phone of this size on the market, although the Sony Xperia Z (5-inch) and Samsung’s own Galaxy S III (4.8-inch) come close. In comparison, the iPhone 5 seems cute with its 4-inch screen. Most notably, none of the competitors carry an integrated stylus.

The 16GB Samsung Galaxy Note II is available for around $680 (and is also available in 32 and 64 GB configurations), while the slightly smaller Galaxy S III is sold for around $540. At the time of writing this article, no US prices were available for the newly launched competitor, the Sony Xperia Z. However, in Europe that phone sells at around €630, the same price as the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy Note II came in a medium sized, sturdy, yet stylish white cardboard box, just big enough to enclose the phone.

Accessories, battery, and documentation were packed on a second layer underneath the phone. My package included a standard USB to micro-USB cable, a USB power adapter, as well as a set of headphones with microphone, control buttons, and extra ear pads in various sizes. The headset plugs into the phone via a standard 3.5 mm 4-conductor phone jack.

The documentation was minimal: a short Quick Start Guide in English and German as well as a booklet containing the warranty card on its cover and warranty conditions in multiple languages inside. And that is absolutely sufficient for online documentation and PDF lovers like myself.

Hardware and Specs

Samsung’s high end Galaxy Note II comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. This is actually slightly less than the original Galaxy Note, which sports 1280 x 800 pixels on a 5.3-inch screen. With this size screen, the Galaxy Note II is large. It measures 5.95 inches (151.1 mm) in height, 3.17 inches (80.5 mm) in width, and 0.37 inches (9.4 mm) in depth. Consequently, it’s also rather heavy, weighing in at around 6.3 oz (180 g). The 3,100 mAh removable Li-Ion battery contributes significantly to the weight.

In terms of computing capacity, the phone is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor and 2 GB of RAM. The review unit came with 16 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 64 GB. The standard operating system is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

We are reviwing the Samsung Galaxy Note II model GT-N7105, which is the international version with LTE (4G). In addition to GSM/GPRS/EDGE, this model can also connect to LTE and HSPA+. Unlike some other versions, it does not come with an FM radio tuner.

Note that the phone only has space for one micro-SIM card. If you still have an old mini-SIM card, you can find plenty of DIY instructions for turning your old SIM card into a micro-SIM card online. We have also written an article about it here The Secret To Making Your Own Micro SIM Card The Secret To Making Your Own Micro SIM Card With the arrival of the iPad, micro SIMs have become commonplace for anyone wishing to connect to the mobile web from a tablet device. More and more mobile phone handsets are also using these chips... Read More . Keep in mind that the mini-SIM is slightly thicker than a micro-SIM and you might have trouble removing it once you slide it all the way in.

On first impression, the Samsung Galaxy Note II has great build quality. The front aspect consists entirely of glass, the frame looks like metal, but might just be plastic, like the back cover, but with a chrome finish.

galaxy note 2 review

To insert the battery, I had to remove the back cover, which proved difficult as it didn’t come off easily. And when trying to push it back on, I was worried of breaking the small plastic pins that hold it in place. However, the parts are solid and the phone survived the procedure completely undamaged.

galaxy note 2 review

Let’s look at the device layout. A camera can be found both on the front and back sides. The 8 megapixel rear camera can shoot full HD videos and is accompanied by a flash light. The 1.9 MP front camera is sufficient for video chatting and records videos or stills at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Next to the front camera are sensors for proximity and light.

galaxy note 2 review

On the front, green, red, and blue notification lights in the top left hand corner indicate battery charging status or pending messages. The blue notification light is triggered by incoming text messages, missed calls, or notifications from various apps, such as Skype, Gmail, or the calendar.

The Galaxy Note II has two microphones; one at the top next to the headset jack which is used during speakerphone mode, and one at the bottom next to the multipurpose jack. The S Pen sits at the bottom left of the back side.

Battery Life

The powerful 3,100 mAh Li-Ion battery has been estimated to fuel up to 17 hours of talk time on a 3G network, up to 35 hours on a 2G network, and up to 980 hours of standby. GSMArena found an endurance rating of 69 hours on one battery charge, which included one hour calling on a 3G network, one hour web browsing, one hour watching video per day, and standby for the rest of the time.

While using the phone extensively for the past three days, I needed to recharge once and am almost ready for a second recharge since the initial full recharge. So while the Samsung Galaxy Note II contains a strong battery and lasts long compared to the competition, you can expect to recharge almost daily, if you intend to use the phone a lot for emailing, checking messages, taking notes, watching videos, and playing games.

Working with the S Pen

For me, the Samsung Galaxy Note II replaces an ancient 2008 HTC Touch Pro Windows phone. The Touch Pro also came with a stylus, which was very necessary given its tiny display. I am mentioning this because years of using this little stylus have tainted my perception of Samsung’s S Pen.

galaxy note 2

Compared to HTC’s stylus, the Galaxy Note II S Pen leaves much to be desired. The HTC is magnificent in that its stylus slides out effortlessly and upon putting it back, is pulled in and held in place by a magnet. Ingenious! Removing or inserting the S Pen on the other hand requires fingernails and is a real drag compared to using the HTC Touch Pro stylus.

samsung galaxy note 2 review

The storage flaw aside, the S Pen is an impressive little tool. It is light, reasonably sized, and if you had a peek at the video above, you already know about its stunning features. Let me give you a summary of my favorite features.

Personally, I love taking handwritten notes, which is why I have been partial to devices that come with a stylus. In the S Pen menu under Settings I enabled the option to Open Popup Note when the pen is detached. So whenever I pull out the pen now, an empty note opens. Notice that you can magically switch between writing and erasing by clicking the S Pen button. Most notably, however, you can move around the note and still use whatever app is open below it.

The S Pen does more than elegantly replacing your finger for taking notes. It has a mesmerizing little feature called Air View. The pure proximity of the pen to the display makes a little circle appear on screen. As you hover the S Pen over certain areas, previews, drop-down menus, or tool tips appear. Moreover, you can use Air View to scroll without touching the screen.

When you depend on taking screenshots, you will love the S Pen. Press the S Pen button, then touch the screen and remain in one position for a second. This will take a screenshot and in the next step you can edit your screenshot, i.e. add notes or crop it. Furthermore, when you move the S Pen on the screen while holding the button, you can lasso a custom area of the screen and capture it.

samsung galaxy note 2 review

The S Pen is incredibly useful and you will discover more features while you’re using it; for example, gestures. However, it does have its shortcomings. While it does replace your finger on screen and can also be used to press the home button (although I’m not sure how good that is for its tip), the S Pen does not work with the menu or back button. So unfortunately, it’s not able to completely replace your finger, for example when you are wearing gloves.

Moreover, I wish the S Pen button would do more. I think it could actually open menus when clicking the button, rather than having to physically touch the screen. But this is probably expecting way too much. After all, it’s just a better stylus, not a remote control.

Living with the Samsung Galaxy Note II

Over the past three days, I have been using the Galaxy Note II for everyday mobile phone tasks, such as checking emails via the Gmail app, browsing the internet using Dolphin, taking notes with the S Pen, watching videos, and chatting via Skype, GTalk, and WhatsApp. Yes, I typically don’t use my phone much for actually talking on the phone. Having used a Windows phone for the past 5 years and an Android Honeycomb tablet for the past 1.5 years, Android Jelly Bean running on this beautiful device from Samsung feels like a liberation.

After the initial setup, I kept getting the error message ‘CloudAgent has stopped working‘ whenever I tried to view photos via the gallery. After some research I concluded it was an error caused by Dropbox. Fortunately, it disappeared after running all due updates. This has been the only real issue I ran into and it resolved itself.

As for the size, I love it. I have always preferred large displays or other additional features over stripped down, limited, and minimalistic devices. Although the Note II is slightly heavier than my old phone, it feels lighter due to its shape. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is a slim phone and still small enough to fit into a pocket, at least with good will.

I didn’t play much with the cameras, but my superficial impression is that they take very decent pictures. The rear camera comes with a 4x zoom and the flash enables good shots even under less than optimal light conditions. Other reviews claim the rear camera is great.

Generally, the phone is full of complex menus and not immediately intuitive features. I stumbled across many of them by accident. And sometimes you think you have figured something out and then it doesn’t work the same way the next time you want to use it somewhere else. However, much of that may be due to not having used Android 4.1 before. So if you are familiar with Jelly Bean, you will probably not be overwhelmed at all.

Taken together, getting used to this phone comes with a bit of a learning curve. The S Pen is the biggest challenge, however, is is also my favorite feature. Overall the Samsung Galaxy Note II is a great device that has its uses for a particular audience, including professionals, students, and artists.

Should You Buy It?

As always, it depends. If you are excited about the S Pen, the large display for multitasking, and if you really need this to be a phone, not a tablet, then the Samsung Galaxy Note II absolutely is for you.

However, if you couldn’t care less about a stylus and would rather have a full HD screen resolution, then I recommend the recently released Sony Xperia Z. If you prefer a smaller device, then there is a host of alternative smartphones on the market, not least the Samsung Galaxy S III.

MakeUseOf recommends: Buy it, if you are excited about the active stylus and want the extra screen space.

    I can't wait to uprgrade from my Galaxy S3. Don't get me wrong, I love my S3 but the Note 2 offers a much more spacious screen to work on as well as a few great features that you cannot get on the S3. Great things coming from Samsung this year like the Youm which I can't wait to see either! Great review!

    • Daniel Eluvathingal
      April 11, 2013 at 12:04 am

      no offence,but i think u should upgrade from s3 to s4. gnote 2 is a whole new world including the awesome s-pen. since u have an s3 it would be better for u to switch to s4.

      • Norman P
        April 11, 2013 at 5:11 pm

        My wife has Note 2 so I've had plenty of time to compare the two of them. The Note 2 has exactly what I need and want from a smartphone and after watching an ungodly amount of S4 reviews on Youtube as well as reading tons of articles about it just seems to me like it is going to be a lot more of the same thing with a few add-ons but its not enough to sell me on it. I know what I'm looking for out of these products and I've done my homework on quite a few devices and will continue to research until I am eligible for an upgrade.

    Finally registered to this site. Now this site will be my first option for a detailed info on products. I mostly like reviews on smartphones and tabs. I also has a suggestion too.When u review smartphones or tabs,try to put some snaps taken with that device and compare with other top phones (comparison). That is the only drawback i see in this reviews. I have checked your recent reviews on nexus4,gnote2 and nexus 10.

    Galaxy note 2 is my biggest dream and i am looking forward to achieve my dream by winning this giveaway on april 12. I have not seen an indian winning a giveaway, but i know its all about random selection & i am all about hoping to win this giveaway....

      I also hope that u will consider my suggestion on upcoming reviews of phones.

    • Tina Sieber
      April 4, 2013 at 9:15 am

      Thanks for the feedback!

      I haven't personally written any of the other hardware reviews on MakeUseOf and I guess the drawback stems from the circumstance that I don't usually review hardware. Camera shots is one thing for which I decided I didn't have enough information, material, or experience to do justice in a review.

      However, there are many reviews about Samsung devices. I found that they usually compliment the excellent quality of the camera/s. This made it easy for me to drop this aspect of the phone.

      And I think we did have Indians win hardware giveaway before. Good luck!

    • Tina Sieber
      March 31, 2013 at 12:10 pm

      We do have a Google +1 button. The share menu is floating on the left-hand side. If you cannot see that, make your browswer window a little narrower and the share buttons will embed directly below the article.

          March 30, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    I'm 68, have had PTSD from getting a really bad time being TS my 1st 24 years, more bad times for 10 years of near fatal MtF transition, and not that terrific difficulties after surgery in 1979. Then there was aorta valve replacement in 2000 to fix a congenital defect there. And I only have an AT&T land-line into the apartment here in the s.w. corner of San Francisco. Is this a sufficiently sad true story to justify sending me a free Samsung Note II? ;-)

    One quick question for Jackson & the gang - these giveaways always say that the winner will be posted on the main blog. Am I crazy in that I don't where the main blog is? Is it just the landing page? Or do I have to click something from the homepage to get to the main blog? I don't want to sound like an idiot, but I just gotta know!

    Thanks :)

    • Tina Sieber
      March 28, 2013 at 9:27 am

      Ah, 'main blog' is our internal slang for MakeUseOf.com because we also have 'sub-blogs' like /answers or /dir (Directory).

      The winners are actually posted within the respective Giveaway article once they have been picked, notified, and confirmed. So it can take a week or two after the contest ends before the names are posted.

    I've been wanting to upgrade from my old school Nokia (bless it's little rugged heart) to a smart phone for years now but each time I'm ready to make the leap, something new comes along. Was thinking of finally jumping into the iPhone pool but once I saw the first Galaxy Note, I knew that's the direction I wanted to go in. As a an artist working in digital media, this seems like the perfect all in one device. And Samsung makes good solid products across the electronics and appliances spectrum so looks like a win/win. Celebrating my b'day today so winning this phone would be awesome sauce on top of the best birthday cake ever. Many thanks to makeuseof for their fabulous site and all the great giveaways.

    @Tina Sieber
    As for the stylus, the reason that removing it and replacing it inside the device is so tedious has to do with the Wacom digitizer technology as decribed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wacom#Technology

    • Tina Sieber

    My Note 2 died suddenly after just a few months, and Samsung refused to repair it because they claimed it was blacklisted, even after I spent much time and effort obtaining various proofs that it wasn't. Samsung customer services are absolutely useless. They even admitted to me that they just ignore customer emails because they are totally overwhelmed. The hardware is nice (when it works) but I cannot possibly recommend anything by Samsung at the moment.

    • Muz RC
      March 26, 2013 at 11:03 am

      maybe u root it? it will break samsung guarentee

      • Garry
        March 27, 2013 at 9:09 am

        No I didn't. Just, the repair centre are idiots and liars, and Samsung customer services will believe them covering up their mistakes, rather than a genuine customer with proof from Vodafone and others.

    • Tina Sieber
      March 27, 2013 at 9:12 am

      Sorry to hear about your negative experience with Samsung, Garry. Unfortunately, lots of companies struggle with customer service.

      • Garry
        March 27, 2013 at 10:39 am

        That doesn't make it any more acceptable. Also, Samsung are meant to be competing with Apple who have brilliant customer service and swap broken iPhones the same day!

        • Tina Sieber
          March 27, 2013 at 3:34 pm

      March 29, 2013 at 8:26 am

      Yes, even though the glass is "Gorilla Glass 2" which is supposedly stronger but thinner and lighter, many people found out that it cannot withstand as much force and pressure as the original, especially around the edges. As much as it should not be needed, a good screen protector and case is needed for this phone. Even a 3 foot drop onto a tile floor can damage the glass, as I have found out. Even the HTC HD2 didn't break from a similar drop. It can, however, survive being in a freezer for an hour or two as well as being in 180°F for a couple hours.

    I am totally confused about this. I have entered this twice and each time the instructions changed each time. After completing a work out like I was on the show where people run around foreign cities collecting clues, I was rewarded with nothing, a big fat zero. Where was the confirmation that I had been entered? I'd like the prize but I feel like I've earned it by now!

    PERFECT timing. I never win things but I am due for my upgrade in May. Have been considering going from my EVO to the iphone, but I think this phone will fit my needs better. Getting on in years and a larger screen is a very attractive feature.

    Looks nice. The question is how it will work after one year. I have Galaxy S2 and it was nice during the first year, now, after one year and half it's terrible - battery should be replaced, sometimes it freezing, KIES can't connect to it etc.
    Just small example:

    • Tina Sieber
      March 27, 2013 at 9:05 am

      At least you can replace the battery. But other than that this sounds pretty frustrating. Have you tried to do a fresh setup? Could fix the freezing and other issues.

    Great phone guys, my first Android after iPhone 4. Trust me its an amazing device, except of two negatives I noticed so far

    -Plastic battery cover and battery shakes (a tiny shaking noise) if you shake the device.
    -The metal (disguised as steel) bracket, is not metal seems plastic to me, My phone dropped from 2 feet height on its left corner the metal paint is no more in that area and I can see white coloured plastic inside...and is very delicate (Image proof link below)

      I can't confirm the shaking; everything is tightly packed in my device.

    Nice trick on the giveaway. I'm all for having to figure the gimmick out, but the "one entry per person" won't let me try twice because my first was wrong. Until this very moment I loved this site. Changing my mind fast.

      Hi Roberta, I'm glad you're up for the challenge. Apparently, not everyone is happy to hunt for the right code. In a previous giveaway, spammers submit thousands of entries so we had to do something to prevent it. We've worked out the kinks in the system and you should be able to submit your entry now. Please try again.

    The dude in the PocketNow video is a bit of a knucklehead. The phone was way ahead of him so many times. You can tell he didn't plan ahead or do much editing.

    I just love this phone ,,, i have been looking high and low for those specifications ... the only thing missing is dual-sim and better protective case but outsie of that out of this world ... I once had a sony w810 it lasted me pass its time over 4 years but it was well chosen when i got it and I know this note II is right there along with the best ...

    Can enter since it says I already did. Hmm, they need to fix this error...

    I agree with the problem of the forth word. It sucks if you enter the forth word and the reply is WRONG.

      It's not the fourth word in this particular article. There's a link you need to click, which takes you to another article. It's the fourth word in THAT article.

    Every time these come up, I go to twitter and Facebook and can never see the code ... The codes just don't show up. Later, when I look, they'll be there. Anyone else ever have this problem?

      Well, NM then. Figured out what I was doing wrong. but hey...I'm a guy...what do I need directions for?

        Glad you managed to figure it out, Chris!

    I would really love to win this. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy SIIX and love the screen, I recently had to have the phone repaired and was given an HTC one for a loner, I could hardly see the screen. A friend has the Galaxy Note and I absolutely love it. Keeping fingers crossed.

    The Galaxy Note II has some nice features, good positioning between a smart phone and a tablet should make it a winner.

    The submission box is case sensitive. This also happened on a couple of other giveaways. Relax, you're undoubtedly entered and you should get an email. If not, clear your cookies and try again.

    And before you ask, no, I don't work for MUO. I'm just observant and have a decent memory LOL.

    March 25, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    The fourth word in this article was "note", but that was rejected and I was instructed to refresh the page and try again. So, I did, and my second entry "android" was accepted. Then I get the message that this too was being rejected because of "one submission per user". What gives?

    • Carole
      March 25, 2013 at 5:20 pm

      Same issue for me:(

    • Jackson Chung
      March 26, 2013 at 12:07 am

      Did you notice "this article" is a link?

      Keep trying.

  281. Stephan A

    Bet this'll get a lot of players.

  282. Fran
    March 25, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    The fourth word in the article is NOTE, yet, the entry would not take it, and then it told me to refresh and try again, but it told me I could only enter once. Go figure.
    If NOTE was not the fourth word, then you need to be more specific as to whether it is one of two words, like Note II.
    Not that I ever win anything, but I don't think I like your new method.

    • BillJude56
      March 25, 2013 at 5:12 pm

      It's the fourth word of the underlined “this article", not this Note II Review and Giveaway page.

      • Jackson Chung
        March 26, 2013 at 12:06 am

        BillJude56 gave you the hint you needed, Fran. "This article" is a link.

    Yes, this looks like something I could use very much. Thanks for the invite!

  287. Glen MAULT
    March 25, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    totally HATE the fourth word code system. Way to ambiguous. Do I start at the title ?
    Do i start at the first line. If so, Note is the fiurth word, does that include the 11?

    Completely SUCKS.....

    I entered the first word and was told it was incorrect and would only allow me one submission....

    Anyone else have this issue?

    As well spent 15 minutes of frustration trying to complete form.

    • Chip white
      March 25, 2013 at 5:06 pm

      I had problems entering also. Same as Glen above .

        Also had the same problem.

        • Aaron Clifford
          March 25, 2013 at 6:04 pm

          Me too. I used some points to claim an entry so at least I am in.

    • Amy Flores
      March 25, 2013 at 6:19 pm

      I clicked on the link "this article" and typed the fourth word and it worked. however, it says only one submission per user even though I didn't submit anything. They really need to fix it.

      • Dale Miller
        March 25, 2013 at 6:34 pm

        Agreed there is something wrong with the submission form.

      • Jackson Chung
        March 26, 2013 at 12:03 am

        Hi Amy, we had a huge amount of spam entries in a previous giveaway and decided to restrict entries based on IP. We've worked out the kinks and you should be able to submit an entry now.

        Don't you just hate it when spammers ruin a good thing for everyone?

        • Amy Flores
          March 26, 2013 at 12:58 am

          I'm not a tech person, but I don't think that is a foolproof method. Some people do have a dynamic IP address (like me, not saying that i'll spam or anything).

    • Linden
      March 25, 2013 at 7:48 pm

      Had the same problem ;-( Agree that it was too ambiguous - tried Note, then Note II, then was told sorry, only one submission. Never got to the part where you enter your information... .

      • Doug Siemens
        March 25, 2013 at 8:19 pm

        Ditto. It really sucks! Go back to the old way of submitting

        • Jackson Chung
          March 26, 2013 at 12:04 am

          How hard can it be to click the link, figure out the fourth word and activate the form?

      • Jackson Chung
        March 26, 2013 at 12:04 am

        The form appears when you've entered the right code. There's no need to hit Enter, as stated in the instructions. Keep trying, read the instructions again, click the right links.

    • Brenda Herring
      March 25, 2013 at 9:56 pm

      click on the link that say THIS ARTICLE and go to 4th word! Hope that helps

    • Chris Marcoe
      March 25, 2013 at 11:32 pm

      As you enter the code, when you get it right, it changes. So, its actually pretty painless.

      • Jackson Chung
        March 26, 2013 at 12:05 am

        Good on you folks!

    • Jackson Chung
      March 26, 2013 at 12:01 am

      If you realise, "this article" is a hyperlink. So click on it and read the 4th word in the article. Not the title, the article. And it's not the first word, it's the fourth.

      Please try again. Thanks.

    • Tina Sieber
      March 27, 2013 at 8:53 am

      Sorry for your frustration, Glen!

      • Glen MAULT
        March 27, 2013 at 6:26 pm

        Hey Tina: thanks for your reply and sentiment. It is appreciated as is your site, as a matter of fact, in my opinion it is the premier site on the internet providing superior articles, information, how to's and giveaways.

        Having said that, I trust with the myriad of complaints regarding the new experimental entry system, a re-think would be appropriate. I get it that that with each system there may be bugs, issues regarding spam etc., and for that I sincerely feel for you and your organization.

        I sincerely hope and trust that "makeuseof" will be around for many moons to come.

        Thanks,

        Glen
