Samsung Galaxy Note 2




Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Overview

The Samsung Galaxy Note was widely panned by the media when it was first announced last year. Then they used it.

The initial cries of ‘it’s too big’ subsided and new opinions were formed. Whilst it was a big device, its larger screen and S Pen stylus meant that business users in particular found it extremely productive to use.

A year on and Samsung has released the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. An even bigger screen shows just how successful the device was. The screen size has increased from 5.3” to 5.5” and to say the device is more powerful would be somewhat of an understatement.

The Note 2 features a whopping 1.6GHz quad-core processor and features Samsung’s own Exynos 4412 Quad chip. This alone would make it super quick, but add Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the mix, which the Note 2 will run out of the box, and you have the fastest device on the market.

Of course, it’s not just its huge screen that the Note is famous for, but the S Pen stylus as well. The new ‘hover’ technology in the Note 2 (and Note 10.1) means that the S Pen does not even need to be touching the display in order to make its mark.

Also adding to the popularity of the original Note was the inclusion of a microSD slot. The Note 2 also features microSD capability (with an official capacity up to 32GB, although it will likely work with 64GB cards). It will also comes with internal storage options of 16, 32, and 64GB.

Size wise, the Note 2 is thinner, slimmer, but slightly heavier than its predecessor. However, despite its larger screen, the handset is only fractionally bigger, so its overall footprint is roughly the same. It also has a massive battery, measuring 3100mAh.

To cut a long story short - if you were a fan of the original Note, you’ll love the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

    It's awesome. Very light, huge screen, and very very fast!
  • 10ATP 17/10/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    I've had my Note 2 for 1 week, and I can safely say that it is the best phone I've owned. I loved the original Note, but this one has been improved in all areas. The size might be too large for some, but to be honest, this size is trending. A large screen is a treat and will be difficult to go back to pinch zooming on a small screen! In summary:A Beautiful device!
  • Liam 13/10/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Just received mine today, absolutely amazing service from Clove. Very helpful customer support, allowed me to change delivery date and location. Phone is brilliant, best smartphone out on the market today. So many features, and such a big phone!!! Thank you very much Clove!!!
  • VIP 8/10/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    This phone is on of the best phones on the market.
    Samsung you really should add the Projector from the Samsung Galaxy Beam to this phone - then you will have the ultimate device.

    What are you waiting for.
    Apple and the other competitors can't produce product like you.
  • Wellington 2/10/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Received mine this morning and I just can't put it down. Amazing phone, really quick and responsive. Runs all applications smoothly and the 5.5 screen is absolutely stunning. It doesn't feel that uncomfortable to put in your pocket and think it's just a matter of getting used to it. However, once you do, you'll never want to go back to any device smaller than that. Clove service was also great, received the phone sealed and real quick exactly when they said I could expect it to be delivered. Really happy!
  • Matt 2/10/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Arrived today at 11.15, nice one Clove.
    Well packaged just like Apple products.
    This phone is BIG, but must say so far i love it. Very fast with some clever features that I'm still learning.
    I was surprised that it doesn't feel that big when you put it in a Jeans pocket, guess this will change when I put a case on it.
