We reviewed the Galaxy Note from Samsung. People liked it. People hated it. Some thought it was too big. Others thought it was the perfect size. Whatever people thought (and by “people”, I mean us, the tech press) consumers bought into it, and Samsung has sold millions. So, fast forward to an extravagant press event in New York City, first calling out to the press and then the public, to come and celebrate the coming launch of the Galaxy Note II — a bigger, faster, and better looking successor.
And you know what? In this case, the sequel is better than the original. In fact, it’s the best Android smartphone I have ever used.
