My Samsung Galaxy Note II Review


As with my previous reviews, I won’t be going into too much technical jargon regarding the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note II such as specific numbers when it comes to performance and internals since I try and gear these towards a broader audience. With that, let’s begin.


My Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

This will be my second attempt at writing a gadget review so I preface this by saying that my experience with these types of reviews is still rudimentary but, since I’m not being paid by anyone to write these or working for anyone nor do I necessarily choose sides in the fierce Apple versus Android debate, it should help you make an unbiased decision.

I’ll be starting with some history regarding my tablet adventures but if you’d rather skip straight to the review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, then click here.


My Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Review

I’ll start this off by saying that yes, I’m very well aware that I’ve been dormant for over a year now.  That aside, I’ve decided to take my first stab at reviewing a smartphone, in this case the Sprint version (Epic Touch 4G) of the Samsung Galaxy S II.  Let’s begin.


Design / Build

Prior to buying the Galaxy, I owned an EVO 3D.  As a result, when I opened the box, I was amazed by how thin and light the Galaxy is considering the huge horsepower packed into the device and how big it seems.  As for the choice to use plastic instead of higher end materials, it didn’t really bother me as much as other reviewers have mentioned even if it does slightly reduce the “premium” feel of the phone.  I already managed to drop it once and it seems to have survived just fine which means the plastic may actually be more durable and perhaps less scratch prone than it may initially seem.

One thing that concerns me is the camera lens.  Unless you have a case that gives the Galaxy a little more girth, resting it on top of any surface means running a risk of potentially scratching the lens or the flash.  Considering the amazingly great pictures this thing produces, you most certainly do not want to take such a risk.
