"Sporting a whopping 5.3 inch 1280 x 800 display it’s difficult to say whether this device is a tablet or a phone, but whatever you’d call it it’s certainly grabbing a lot of attention."

"We were blown away by the battery life, with well over half the charge remaining after our 24 hour test. In casual use we found the Note to outlast other phones by a considerable amount, despite the power being used by the screen and CPU. Some of this is the sheer size of the battery - Samsung’s decision to put a 2500mAh battery is noticeable. Of course, the size of the device naturally allows for a bigger battery, but for anyone who worries about the state of smartphone battery life, the Note has more than enough power to share." 5/6 Stars

"With its huge screen and throwback stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a polarizing smartphone that winks at tablet territory." 8.3/10

"The handwriting recognition in particular is much better than the original Note’s and now features throughout much more of the interface. For example, if you activate the Google search bar with the stylus equipped it’ll let you write your search in a pop up box, likewise for text messages and so on. But mainly it’s how much better the Note 2 is at letting you write smoothly and accurately – it even recognises when you rest your palm on the screen and doesn’t allow it to interrupt you." 4/5 Stars

"Despite its whopping 5.3-inch display the Galaxy Note is remarkable slim and light in the hand lining up at just 9.65mm thick and 178 grams in weight. This ultra slim, lightweight design helps make the Note manageable in a single hand although a second set of digits will be needed in order to type on the expansive display." 4/5 Stars

" If you prefer one-handed use, then you’ll struggle with the Note, as it simply isn’t possible for your thumb to reach all parts of the screen while keeping a firm hold on it."

"The crowning glory of the Note is the screen: 5.3" of WXGA goodness (1280 x 800) and it is a belter." 4/5 stars

"This is one case where you'll definitely want to get your own hands on one before signing up to any two-year commitments, if only to see if it will fit in your hands as well as your budget."

"The only thing we're not sure about is actually using the thing as a phone. It could look a bit weird and embarrassing. But hey, what are headphones for?"

"After a solid day of trying to use the device, this writer’s advice is simple: don’t. Or at least not yet. That’s because the 5.3” screen looks lovely, but everything that makes the Note novel – the “S Pen” stylus, the handwriting recognition, the ability to share annotated web pages and clips to easily – simply doesn’t work as well as it needs to to justify the price. Use the Note as a phone and you look like a toddler; use it as a tablet and you may as well have bought the much better Samsung Galaxy Tab, or any one of scores of other devices. " 3.5/5 Stars
