Pros: super fast quad core 1.6 GHz processor.
Large 5.5 inch super amoled 720 p HD screen non pentile version.
A plethora of the features including the extra features that that s pen enables.
Great battery life with 3100 mah battery whuch is removable.
Micro sd slot for up to 64 gbs of external storage.
Cons: Pricey, but you will not need to worry about your device vecoming obsolete before your next device, as its packing the latest and greatest in every aspect besides the 1st and only 1080p display in the USA on the DNA. Which that device has ONLY a 2020 MAH battery, and a few other shortcomings which I don't need to list in this review.
A little large, but as I mentioned you will quickly become accustomed to the size and everything else will feel unnecessarily small. Making myself wonder why I ever wanted such a small device especially with this being pocketable.
My conclusion. This is hands down the best device for all your entertainment, productivity, and typical smartphone needs!
At first, the phone seemed humungus. Now whenever I use a phone such as an iPhone, they just seem small to me. The size doesn't matter a bit, it's a nice size for movies and games. The battery has proven to be the best of any phone I've ever owned (and there's been a lot of phones in my life, lol)
Three annoyances, which I've been able to fix, are the S-widget bar on the left side of the screen. I figured out if you hold the back key in for 2 seconds the S-widget bar will disappear and not come back on unless the battery is removed or the back button is held another additional two seconds.
The next con, is the water noises when the screen is touched. I figured out how to turn that off in the sound settings.
The final gripe which annoyed the you know what outta me the first time I got this phone is the predictive text. It comes in handy for things such as Im translates to I'm, etc. But it doesn't understand what you wanna say, for example, if you say someones name the phone isn't farmiliar with in a text, the phone basically changes it to the word IT thinks you should make it to be. The way to fix this is to tap the word you want and then click out of that word, and press the space bar and continue on with your text message or email. I wish there would be a way to just shut that part off and leave the corrections on abbreviations on.
Most of these things I'm sure are fixed by upcoming software updates, or new models,but I've made due with what i have, and what I have is an excellent phone.
The best case you can get is a Platinum Case from Best Buy. I got mine on clearance as they were discontinuing this phone (a little bummed that I won't be under the XLTE requirements) but the case only cost me 5$.
I keep the S-pen in the hole on the bottom of the phone because who wants a hole on the bottom of their phone?, But I've used it one time, but I just feel that you can do most of the work by just the touchscreen, I think that Samsung could have worked better in the finish department, my bezel is worn and the S-PEN "upholstery" was completely gone within a week or two, no joke.
The phone is a tough (did get this moist once) good choice for you. And the screen never disappoints. I'm one of those people that constantly changes their phones because of new phones coming out, or reasons of stuff wrong with their old/current phone, but I really can't find a reason to switch with this one. I'll probably purchase the note4 when it comes out. The two things I've found wrong with it so far, are that it runs hot, like excruciatingly hot after a couple hours of gaming (I travel by train a lot for work) and that the S-pen chips away. The battery holds great, I am a "power'user" and I get mostly 3-4 days in heavy use. Work has said that they will switch to iPhones sometime soon and I've yet to see if that's something I actually want to do, because this thing is so perfect it's hard to believe.
It is a big phone, not designed for the dainty and weak. I added a silcone/plastic case and it has an armored feel to it now.
Battery life is good, will run all day on a single charge with substantial use.
Finally, it is last year's model and that means Samsung is clearing them out for the Note 3. Great deals are to be had. If the size does not intimidate you, this is your phone. Runs with the best of them, and provides a total media experience.
