So first of WOW the screen on the Note 2 is huge! And mean HUGE! It rocks a 5.5 inch Super Amoled Display and wow its it beautiful.
People might argue with the point of it being to big and yeah they do have a point, I have medium sized hands and the Note 2 is really fiddly when trying to function basic tasks such as web browsing and texting.
However its really cool for watching videos and viewing content on the device with the amazing screen.
Apart from having the big screen the device has some other cool features such as the S-Pen which I am very fond of, It bring some really software features to the device and really fun to mess around with.
Something else that stood out to me is the removable battery and micro SD card expansion slot which is always nice to see.
