"but the most interesting one is called Music square - it's quite similar to the SensMe feature of Sony Ericsson phones. It automatically rates a song as exciting or calm, passionate or joyful and plots those songs on a square (hence the name)."
Nice Samsung. Who's next after apple, dell & sony? Nokia? Ideas of features from scratch;
Icons, some concepts...etc. from apple. Audio from Sony. SoundAlive ala Beats from HTC. Size from Dell (streak). Camera...??? Beware Nokia. What's amazing with COPYCATS? No originality.
Ban the copycat devices. FAKE
Great phone! As I saw it I thought in the first moment "far to big" and you will look a little bit foolish with this on your ear. But why? I think size is just a habit. On my desktop is a Ti-30 calculator and gues what it have nearly the same size like the Note2 and I can put it in the pocket of my jeans. Or my old made of paper pocket scheduler. When I opened it it have also the same size like the Note 2.
Well right now I'm thinking the Note 2 will be probably my next phone!
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2012iphone 5 touch capabilities is much better:P better ? how ? or just better cos u decided so ? Facts pls, Facts....
rotem, 03 Oct 2012It's old technology.
this is new technology from Nokia lumia 920, do not need stylus .
htt... moreThis video doesn't show finger touch beats stylus? Only that Lumia has sensitive to gloves! All phone are too... Nokia fans only think that Nokia first came with this and that! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ_lhNle4T0 And i can't believe i found a video shows that too and its for 2010 phones!
Show mean how can you write a note with 10 line on Lumia screen with a finger...Or write this Asian sentence with your finger
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2012And why is Samsung going backwards. Stylus is so last season.you just don't know anything, right?
First of all, thnx to you guys in GSMarena for such a complete, great, handy review. your good job helped me a lot to choose Samsung GN2 rather than Samsung GS3.
for me, the big screen, software capabilities in jelly bean and samsung touchwiz, FM radio, good battery life and stylus of galaxy note 2 are the most important features which make me eager to buy this expensive phone. (in Iran, this phone costs me 4 month of my salary)
and you might be happy to know that the most well known IT-Blogs and magazines in Iran, translate GSMarena's articles and reviews to persian because GSMarena is very popular in my country.
and sorry for my weak english. I've tried my best!
Pathetic Display resolution,Ram management only ~300 mb free ram out of 2gb,total rip off.
true, 04 Oct 2012so i buy the special pen, and then my iphone is better than the note. apple wins again.You seem to the most intelligent Apple fanboy of all ROFTL...
Now I know why people buy IPhones:), they read reviews of a truck and think that they can put wheels to their phone and drive it. They read reviews of a plane, they think they can stick wings and their phones will fly.
Get Real dude!!!
iphone, 04 Oct 2012kind of ipad with a pen??its not a pen... good luck using a pen on your ipad... by the way, S-PEN is not just a pen... read the review closely if you can do with a pen on your ipad on what an S-Pen can do to Note II... iSheep!!!
guys, the S-Pen is not just a stylus... its far better than that... stylus can not interact with the phone... spen has lot of interactions... be sure to compare objectively guys before trolling and saying something about S-Pen vs stylus... many of you here are dumb...
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2012Nope, even with the most expensive iStylus you can buy, your iphone cant do hover functionalit... moreLol apple will need more than a pen to beat the note 2. But yes a pen would be a good start so they can start writing down some innovative ideas lol
OMG..! tell me.. how can a person compare this phone with an iphone? I read every single page. Not to compare.. apple not even closer to this.. not even next year..
in OS, JB, can't imaging how they got these types of ideas to add on...
true, 04 Oct 2012so i buy the special pen, and then my iphone is better than the note. apple wins again.Nope, even with the most expensive iStylus you can buy, your iphone cant do hover functionalities because it requires a special digitizer. Your iphone loses again :)
nuke, 04 Oct 2012As always, a fantastic, fantastic, fantastic review by Gsmarena. Great work guys! Having read ... moreGsmarena has always been the best in mobile reviewing. My only request left is for them to release a gsmarena app for android. If other competitors like theverge, youmobile, cnet, ign can... so should gsmarena. Please!
