Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 - user opinions and reviews

Sort by:

The S Pen, or the Wacom active stylus and the apps that help you operate the Note series, differentiates it from the rest of other devices.

It's the prime feature why I got the first Galaxy Note and the resolution and size of the screen back in November of 2011. Most people were laughing at this marvel. Not so much now with a jump in performance and new features in the Note II.

Yes, you can have a nice smooth operation with the capacitive touch with your fingers as well. With the Note 10.1 and the Note II, useful app additions like being able to doodle over the S Calendar, switching pen tip style by hover clicking the side button of the S Pen, the free Moleskine app from Samsung App store, hover previews of videos, galleries, web content and email - make this worth the buy.

It's going to take a lot of convincing for me to switch to something that doesn't have a Wacom active stylus for digital painting and sketching - and a charge lasting 16 to 20 hours moderate to heavy (7 to 8 hours of screen-on time). Here's hoping for the Note III to be even better this year! Cheers!

I prefer this stylus over the S-pen because of natural resistance and better size and shape, but it's very much skipping in fast action. Did not see this problem on other phones I tried the pen on, ipad of my sis included. Will do extensive test with xperia z when I get it, hope I don't need new stylus.

I don't know what phone you were looking at but my note 2 is silky smooth with no lag whatsoever.

Settings -> Developer Options -> Show touches + Show pointer location.

See lag for yourself.
