Samsung's original Galaxy Note looked like it couldn't make up its mind whether it wanted to be a phone or a tablet. The latest version offers big improvements to screen, processor, camera, battery and operating system, and show's that your pocket pal doesn't have to be one or the other.

A blazing quad-core processor, a great camera, and strong battery life round out the advantages of this Android 4.1 phone.

The huge display makes the Galaxy Note 2 unwieldy to carry, and hiccups in the S Pen stylus and apps can slow you down. The pricey Note 2 isn't a suitable tablet replacement across all categories.

The additional sorcery is carried out away from view. The microSD expansion slot is beneath the rear cover - as is the microSIM slot, hidden behind the enormous 3,100 mAh battery.

At 183g (0.4lbs), you couldn't describe the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as a feather - and the weight gives it a real notion of substance.

The quad-core 1.6GHz processor backed by a mighty 2GB RAM has a lot of work to do but steps up to the mark admirably. This is a fast device, whipping smartly between apps and browsing web pages with no sign of slow-down.
