Android Central full review: http://www.androidcentral.com/samsun...-note-2-review

Notable quotes:

....it’s by far the best screen you’ll find on a Samsung phone.

(regarding battery performance) The end result was an average of around 12 hours of very heavy use on Wifi and HSPA+ during our first full day with the Note 2. Later on, with more normal usage patterns, we managed well over 24 hours on a single charge.

It’s the fastest, smoothest user experience you can have on an Android smartphone.

The international Galaxy Note 2 is just has hacker-friendly as any other Samsung smartphone. Rooting the device is simply a matter of flashing the relevant files across in ODIN mode, and work on ClockworkMod recovery for the device has already begun.

The Note 2 delivers thoughtful hardware and software improvements over the first Note, with solid build quality and surprisingly competent ergonomics. The screen is gorgeous, the camera matches the high-end competition, and the device’s performance and responsiveness are nothing short of buttery-smooth. The S Pen, though still not a required in everyday use, has become more useful -- and usable -- in the Note 2.

Conclusion:

..... the Galaxy Note 2 is the best large-screen smartphone available by a considerably wide margin. ... the best device available, by the very longest of country miles. LG’s Optimus Vu and Intuition don’t even come close.

Wow Siri got smoked. Can the Google search be used to start apps or only set alarms.

Man I can't wait till this thing hits AT&T

Galaxy Note 2 Unboxing and review
Greetings XDA members, Just got my Galaxy Note 2 a few days ago, it was launched on 1st October here in the UK. Just though I would share a quick unboxing and review with you that I put up on my You Tube channel. I'm not a tech reviewer, just an Android fan. I thought It might be good to get the perspective of an ordinary user. Since I'm just a new member I can't post a link yet but you can find it here -

Hope that's right. If not my channel is rowanjparker and you can find it that way as well. I'm a musician so I threw in some 'non conventional' review techniques you may think but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Please leave a comment if you like it.

All the best to you all

Cheers Rowan

Since https://play.google.com/store/search...ry+bind&c=apps doesn't list it I assume you are referring to http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...-galaxy-s-iii/ ?

Why did Samsung impose the limitation & do any reviews discuss dealing with it?

I still hope more than 16GB will be available initially in the US..
