Using one for 5 months now.
Screen might sound large but it's somewhat taller than wider and fits nicely in hand. Doesn't fit so nicely in pockets (fits barely and it is noticeable).
+ beautiful screen, 720p is great
+ it's very fast, no hiccups in the UI, handles everything I threw at it
+ S-Pen is fun for writing notes and then OCR them, also fun to write anything (like SMS) and have it recognized (as long as it's in English)
+ great call quality, especially over 4G
- battery drains faster and faster. Initially I could use it with 4G and GPS and BT for about 2 days. Two months later it won't pass the day without recharge for same usage (probably updates & push notifications apps - but as I don't use twitter/fb, I find it weird)
- despite fun, S-Pen is not as useful as it could be.
- Samsung doesn't seem willing to push Android beyond 4.1 and custom ROMs will remove the S-Pen utilities.

best phone ever! I'm missing the radio tuner but everything else is breathtaking! For the radio, there's a lot od radio androids app anyway with lots of local and global stations to choose from. After all, you have an lte phone that supports fast data.

Does anyone know about galaxy note II dual-sim N 7102.
Is it an original or clone from China.
great going adaarshini prfect decision ..go for it its beautfull..prfct choice.
Whats everyone's thoughts on the Note 3 having several variants (premium, mid and entry) with different body and screen types?
I think its a good idea but just hope it doesn't end up like the 16/32/64GB situation where you can only find the base spec.
WE WANT 32GB AND 64GB PHONES SAMSUNG!!! :-)
