The Samsung Galaxy Note II is great for someone who is looking for a robust Android smartphone with a large screen for reading, watching videos, and playing games. Its processor with a 2GB RAM is the second most powerful quad-core processor after the HTC One X, and while some may argue that the Note II is too big for a smartphone, it is slim and comfortable to hold. At 180 grams, it weighs just as much as the Nokia Lumia 920, which in comparison is a much smaller device. A 5.5-inch super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with Gorilla Glass 2 coating makes for a bright display, although it’s not as sharp as the Samsung Galaxy S3. Even though they both come with the same screen resolution of 1280 x 720p, the pixel density fairs a lot better on S3’s smaller screen.

What the Samsung Note II lacks in terms of size and construction, it makes up for with its innovative and fun features. One of its most distinguishing features is the S Pen. You can use it to type notes while on call, create figures from existing photos and documents, run quick commands, clip images and text from the web, and if you’re feeling creative, you can even use it to scribble and draw. Air View saves on a lot of time by letting you quickly preview emails, images, and videos using the S Pen without having to actually open these files. The screen recorder-another useful feature-helps keep track of all your actions and comes in handy when you are working on or editing a document.

The 8-megapixel camera quality for both images and videos is not very impressive; the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC 8X have a much better camera. But if you are willing to let that slide, you have a phone that is excellent for multitasking and long-lasting productivity. You can take notes while on call, send a tweet while watching a video, and easily transfer content from one app to another without worrying about frequently charging your phone. Its 3100mAh battery has the ability to last up to 12 hours on video playback, which is longer than any other smartphone currently available.
