The Samsung Galaxy Note II is a hugely successful mobile Android device - the Korean giant has just announced that sales of its Galaxy Note II smartphone have topped more than three million since its launch in September. Not bad going for a 'phablet'.

We said: 'People love a big screen it seems and, in smartphone terms at least (if, in fact it is a smartphone and not a tablet) there's nowt bigger than the 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. When paired up with Samsung's special stylus - dubbed the S Pen - the Note II becomes an incredibly intuitive mobile partner, albeit one that may make you look a bit silly when making a call.'

Others said: 'We're in love. This phone may seem wildly illogical, but Samsung have somehow managed to create a device that offers so much more than a smaller phone and almost makes tablets pointless. This phone won't be for everyone, but for us it's one of the best Android devices money can buy.' (Ian Morris, Pocket-lint)
