Best Galaxy Note 2 Accessories
There are a ton of great Galaxy Note 2 accessories to make the leading phablet last longer, do more and survive day-to-day use without breaking the bank.
Now that the Galaxy Note 2 is available on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint in the U.S. we’re seeing a growing collection of Note 2 accessories available online and in carrier stores.
The Galaxy Note 2 is a commonly called a phablet because it is larger than most phones and smaller than most tablets. This makes it difficult to use many universal accessories. The good news is we’ve found a growing number of Galaxy Note 2 cases, accessories and adapters to help Note 2 owners get the most out of their phablet.

The Galaxy Note 2 is one of our top smartphones of December 2012 thanks to the many extra software features, like Multi-Window View which let owners use two apps at once. The Galaxy Note 2 S-Pen doesn’t yet have a special holder like the original Note did, so there’s no way to add an easier to hold S-Pen to your pocket, but there are plenty of other Note 2 accessories.
Stay tuned as we’ll update this list of Galaxy Note 2 accessories as we find more.
Amazing Galaxy Note 2 Case
A good Galaxy Note 2 case protects the phablet without adding to the already large size. We found several Note 2 cases that still allow users to carry the Note 2 in a pocket and use it with one hand.
Check out our Best Galaxy Note 2 cases for six of our top picks.
The selection is growing, so we expect to add more in the coming weeks, but users can already find an OtterBox Galaxy Note 2 case to protect the phone in harsh conditions. There's also a colorful Speck CandyShell Note 2 case and Note 2 screen protectors available.
Samsung offers an official Galaxy Note 2 flip case and we've already found one Galaxy Note 2 charging case that combines leather and a battery, so more options are incoming.

Don’t bother with an S-Pen holder. Just use a stylus for a Wacom tablet. I use one designed for the Fujitsu Lifebook and the eraser even works!

I hate this case, I had one on my original Galaxy Note & it was so uncomfortable & slid around when trying to play games.
I got Samsungs other case they make for my Galaxy Note 2 which is the Protective + case that fits over the back of the device and looks exactly like the actual back of the device with a rubber surround that goes around the sides and catches over_to the front glass. Its very minimal & you can barely tell theres a case on it at all. Its definitely the case you want for your Note 2 to protect it but keep it looking stock.- KID ANDROID (Team.Android.Canada)

Has it been confirmed (by actually trying one) that the Note2 doesn’t support more than 64GB? I ask because in order for an SD card (mini, micro, standard, or otherwise) to support more than 32GB it needs to jump from the SDHC standard to the the SDXC standard becuase the SDHC standard is limited to a maximum size of 32GB. The SDXC standard is limited to a maximum size of 2TB, so the only two things left to limit the maximum card size would be market availability (128GB microSDXCs are available, and 256GB microSDXCs are announced) and OS support.
So, I ask again, has anyone tried using one of the few (and currently expensive) 128GB microSDXC cards in a Note2? Samsung doesn’t claim to support it probably because they haven’t tested it.

Maybe try formatting the card while it’s in the phone… Worked for the 64 gig cards that weren’t supported on the evo lte.. May need root tho as I barely even remember that phone since I got my note 2…
