5. The so-called “Easy mode” delivers fast access to apps, data

Easy mode is one of those features that might go overlooked, but actually adds a lot of value to the Galaxy Note II. Easy mode is designed to help users access important functions, like contacts and apps, from the home screen without having to sift through the device’s on-screen software to find them. It makes getting work done much easier.

6. It’s a true multimedia device

Samsung has gone out of its way to make the Galaxy Note II a multimedia device. The product includes support for a wide array of video formats, and with the company’s Music Hub, users can download all of the tracks they desire. A built-in 8-megapixel rear camera is also a nice addition.

7. Samsung is a leader for a reason

As recent performance has shown, just two companies—Apple and Samsung—are dominating the mobile market. In fact, the companies combined to score more than 100 percent of the mobile market’s profits last quarter. That’s because those two companies are delivering the most interesting products. Customers know what brands they like, and they stick with them.

8. Connect to the Web anywhere

Although 4G LTE service is coming to more places around the U.S., there’s still a shocking number of products that don’t support the ultra-high-speed networking. The Galaxy Note II, however, does. And those who don’t think that’s important are kidding themselves. LTE is the future, and every consumer and enterprise user knows it.

9. It’s actually quite nice for enterprise users

Speaking of enterprise users, the Galaxy Note II actually does a nice job of appealing to the corporate world. The device has built-in encryption and support for VPN networks. In addition, the device supports Mobile Device Management applications, Cisco Compatible Extensions and VMware Mobile Virtualization Platform. Not bad for a product that many believed was best-suited for consumers.

10. App support

By running Android, the Galaxy Note II takes advantage of the operating system’s ever-expanding application marketplace. Does that mean that all apps will work so well with the Note’s stylus? No. But it does mean that there will be an ample number of apps available to anyone who wants to enhance its use. And that’s a good thing.
