I have had my Note II about a month.

I love this phone. I haven't felt this impressed and instantly in love with any device before.

I really like the fit and finish of the phone. Feels more solid and better built than the One X I had. I have the titanium gray version. I really like the brushed metal effect under the glass. This is my first phone with a case. With the size and cost of the device I wanted something to protect the corners from potential drops.

This device leaves me with no wants. No "it'd be nice if it..." statements.

I find the screen easily on par with the One X screen in actual use. Can't see the pixels, viewable outdoors, color reproduction feels the same.

Performance behemoth. Only time I see hesitation or stutters is in known trouble apps like Chrome and Facebook. Cannot fault the phone for poorly coded apps. Whether I am using multiple apps with Multi-View or pop up play, or both, its always super smooth and responsive.

Battery that actually lasts me a whole day. I am a power user, and was used to charging my GS II twice before bed time, the One X once, and the Note II has battery left over.

Camera could be better in low light, but otherwise its great, and really fast. Call quality is what it is. Who uses a phone for phone calls anyway?

TouchWiz is just awesome. No CM/AOKP for me. Sure, there are a lot of features I don't use, but there are some simple incredible features I use all the time. Smart Stay, Smart Alert, Pop Up Play, Multi-View, and AllShare Cast come to mind quickly.
