Price as Reviewed: $370 on a new 2-year contract with T-Mobile (web-only)
After already reviewing the awesome Galaxy Note II on AT&T, giving it a solid score of 9/10, praising how awesome it was, in ever sense of the word, it was high time to do another review of it, on another network. So, it’s time to look at T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy Note II: the same specs, sans LTE, instead going for T-Mobile’s overclocked 4G HSPA+ network. The results are a little less amazing; HSPA+ gets you anywhere from 5MBps to 17MBps in the download sectorin New York City and the surrounding area.
The included carrier apps are pretty much equivalent to the apps that AT&T includes on their version of the Note II. Multi-Window, a feature that was just recently added via software update, is fantastic and useful if you want to multitask or switch to other apps quickly — it also just looks cool when you use it.
