The Samsung Galaxy Note II was just reviewed over at Engadget, and they had some fantastic things to say about the device. For some the Note 2 might seem a bit too large, but for other this will be the perfect hybrid device to maximize your productivity and pleasure. Here's a quote from the Engadget review with a final summary,
Those are some strong words in favor of the device. The review is very thorough and highlights a huge plethora of features and functions on the new phone. It is definitely worth a read. For those looking to grab the device when it hits their respective retail stores, the review suggests you will be making a wise choice.To answer the question we posed at the beginning of this review, this thing is the real deal, and it's decisively better than the device that began the whole phablet craze. With SIM-free versions starting in the ballpark of £530, it's a bit on the pricey side, but for good reason: it offers best-in-market performance, an S Pen experience that blows its predecessor out of the water, a solid OS in Jelly Bean and plenty of other features that will make this a tempting offer to even the most petite-handed individual. To do so in a package that's actually thinner and narrower than the first Note is a tremendous accomplishment, and one that'll be hard to match. Get ready to have your cake and eat it too.
