The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is still considered one of the best smartphones on the market six months after its first release. Since then other smartphones have hit the market including the Google Nexus 4 and the Sony Xperia Z.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 still stands strong against rival devices with its mammoth hardware specs. Customers look for speed and seamless navigation of a device and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 delivers. Its 1.6 GHz Quad Core Processor and 2GB RAM makes it one of the snappiest smartphones on the market.
The release of new phones doesn't seem to have tempted current Galaxy Note 2 owners to swap their devices for another one. Perhaps some of the signature features of the Galaxy Note 2 are what's keeping users attached to their devices.
What's unique about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is that the S Pen stylus that allows users to use their smartphone unlike ever before. The S Pen stylus lets users add personal signatures to emails, clip images directly from the Web and draw with precision.
"I LOVE my phone (GALAXY NOTE 2) I can design right off my phone. s note!", @Kixcrazy tweeted.
The S Pen also interacts with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with a hovering capability called Air View. Hover the S Pen over any email or text and a pop-up window shows a preview without having to open the entire message.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S4 smartphone includes the Air View feature which works without having to use a stylus. No other smartphones currently on the market have the Air View feature or a stylus pen like the S Pen.
Apple is rumored to possibly include an S Pen-like stylus, although nothing was confirmed. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 releasing later this year is sure to include the existing features of the Galaxy Note 2. Additional features announced for the Samsung Galaxy S4 such as the S-translator, Air Gesture and the advanced camera features.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users may be playing the waiting game and would prefer to wait and see what the Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 3 has in store to consider a phone swap.
"Get the Galaxy S4, keep my Galaxy Note 2, or wait for the Galaxy Note 3 in November," @MrM_Squared tweeted.
With its speedy processor speed, exclusive features and 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Note 2 is more than enough smartphone for users to handle for now.
