The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is fairly new to Verizon’s lineup of phones although the phone itself has been out on the market for quite some time. Verizon was definitely late to the party in making the Note 2 available to its customers.
It is immediately noticeable that Samsung put a lot of attention into the presentation of the package. It looks as if they took some notes from Apple and realized that it’s all about the presentation. The one downside to all of this, is that Verizon went a little overboard with their branding across, not only the packaging, but the device as well.
The back of the box lists the contents of the box as follows:
• Samsung Galaxy Note 2
• S Pen
• Standard Lithium Ion Battery
• Wall/USB Charger
• Quick Reference Guide
• Product Safety & Warranty Brochure
Remove the sleeve, open the box, and there lies the massive Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The initial size is quite daunting as you ask yourself, “Why did I buy such a huge phone?” Rest assure though, the size of the phone becomes very comfortable after some time and all other phones appear way too small.
Beneath the phone is a flip cover, which reveals the User Manual and Charging cables. If you are anything like me, you will toss the manual aside and quickly charge the phone so that you can test out the device in all its glory.
I have to say that this is a beautiful ad very powerful phone. As mentioned earlier, Verizon’s logo is branded over the entire phone. In fact, I believe Verizon is the only provider that etched their logo on the Note 2’s home button. Nevertheless, I am so far very happy with my purchase and have absolutely not regrets leaving Apple’s iPhone. Upgrading to Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also allowed me to take advantage of 4g LTE with unlimited data usage!
That is about all I have for now. I will take the next few weeks to test out this new device and will be back for a full review of the Note 2.
