Samsung Galaxy Note 2

The Good Massive, bold screen is great for video; stylus makes writing notes a breeze; Superbly powerful processor; Loads of helpful software.

The Bad Stylus is very easy to lose; camera is rather disappointing; hard to use one-handed.

The Bottom Line With an even bigger screen than the gigantic Galaxy Note and a superbly powerful quad-core processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the ideal smart phone for anyone who values a spacious screen above all else.
