big, clear screen, fast hardware, slick Jelly Bean OS, S-Pen
Cons
Honestly, nothing so far

It's phabulous!
I've had the Telstra LTE model N7105T for 2 weeks.
Like everyone else I thought the Galaxy Note 1 & 2 were too big. 2 weeks later my old HTC Desire, my wife's iPhone and every other phone look like toys you would give your kids to play with.
You really appreciate the big, clear screen every time you pick up the phone. It fits comfortably in my hand or my pocket. My wife didn't find it too big either.
It's fast and smooth regardless of what you are doing.
The S-Pen is an added bonus. You can do everything without it but some things are quicker and easier with it. The hand writing recognition is fast and accurate even with my scrawl.
I have seen the future and the future is BIG!

Pros
Speed, Camera, screen size,sd slot
Cons
the placement of the on/off button
• • •

This is a great mobile, I use to run HTC but this phone kicks butt in terms of raw power and speed, I love it..Phone calls are lot more clear,battery life is fantastic, I purchased the Telstra 4G ver and I cant notice any more battery drain(battery so far has lasted 2days without charge). The only critical thing i can say about this phone is the placement of the on/off button, When you are trying to watch a movie etc by rotating the screen sometimes my fingers hit the button and putting phone into standby mode... after a while this becomes very annoying

Pros
It's bigger and better :)
Cons
Have to wait for the Aussie version with 4G, NFC etc
• • •

Buyers beware...I just got an email from Kogan sales team confirming the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which they sell for $679 has a catch.... no 4G (to be expected) but also no NFC.

This is strange as the same N7100 model at mobicity advertises with NFC. Why the difference with the same model? hmmm....

Pros
Screen Size, AirView, S Pen, Multi tasking
Cons
Huge mistake with no ETA or global launch. Will be outdated before Australia gets it
• • •

Very disappointed that it will be delayed for release in Australia. When will they learn that this affects sales figures dramatically. I feel like every time a new phone is announced, its old news before it hits shops.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
