Samsung, Galaxy Note 2
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review – summary
When we first saw the original Galaxy Note , our initial reaction was that this beast couldn't possibly be a phone: it was just too big. So big it had to be a mini tablet. Then came the S3 , which could also be too big for the smaller handed gadget fan, but ultimately proved simply too powerful and too full of next-gen tricks to dislike. Both, unsurprisingly perhaps, have proven to be extremely popular indeed, which bodes very well for the 5.5in Galaxy Note 2, which essentially blends the two into one slick, beefed up, S-Pen toting device. So is it as good as it sounds? Can it become your one-stop-shop for internetting on the go? And just how silly do you look when making a call on one?
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review – design and build
Put the Galaxy Note 2 next to the 4.8in Galaxy S3 and suddenly – as Goldilocks once said – the smaller of the two starts to look just right. Suddenly the best phone in the world looks like a tiny handset that suddenly seems easier to hold in one hand.
