Samsung Galaxy Note II

Written by Brianna Smity

Samsung’s dynamite new Galaxy Note II is definitely going to set off some sirens on the smartphone market due to its marvellous capabilities.


Firstly its style cues have been derived from the Galaxy S III and it has a bigger Super AMOLED screen (5.5” vs 5.3”). The screen offers better clarity and a 16:9 screen ratio – perfecting all viewing experiences. While its resolution is not as rich as the Galaxy S III, it still emits vibrant colours and the screen can be viewed from wide angles. The innovative design of the Galaxy Note II includes a bigger screen while maintaining a slim body to fit snugly in your hand. Running off a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and 3100mAh battery, this bad boy has an array of nifty features.

Call it a phablet as the line between phone and tablet has been blurred. It is a rather large phone but it will easily fit into your pockets as long as you are not wearing overly tight clothing. The design still is in keeping with the Galaxy range as it is burly and lightweight plastic. Its S Pen slot is laden with some great ability. It can open the S Memo application while you are still on the phone. The Air View allows you to hover your stylus over the display rendering you control over most, from messages to even videos without having to make actual physical contact with the display.

The only criticism we may have to muster is it a rather large gadget and holding it to your face may look a little peculiar since petite it is not. Overall it is an awesome gadget that is faster than the Texas Roadrunner when it comes to media and internet usage. It is another fine example of Samsung creating technology like a boss.
