A Technical Appraisal Of The Bigger, Better And Faster Samsung Galaxy Note II

imagesSamsung Galaxy Note II is the second of the tablet-Smartphone series by Samsung following the Samsung Galaxy Note. Galaxy Note II was announced on August 29, 2012 in Berlin, and subsequently released worldwide in October 2012. The success of this ‘phablet’ (a term given to tablet + Smartphone) can be seen from the fact that during the first 37 days about 3 million devices were sold. The phablet has received very positive reviews both from everyday users and from the experts, marking huge success. It is one the perfect devices in the market.


The first noteworthy thing on first experience is the stylus. It was long believed that the era of a stylus is now over. Samsung has again proved this wrong. Round corners, scant bezels, high-glossy surface and curved out screen are the main features of its design with a comparatively large size and a slot for the stylus. On first experience the large size annoys but you quickly get used to it. The dimensions are 5.9 inches by 3.2 inches by 0.37 inches and weighs 6.4 ounces. The dimensions speak of the large size of this note. It manages to look slim and sleek. As against its competitors Samsung still goes with the plastic body of this note.

The tablet employs a powerful 1.6 GHz Processing Unit. It is one of the most powerful processors used out there. It also includes a powerful 2 GB RAM.

Touch screen:

The screen is simply the richest and the best screen Samsung has ever given. It is a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screens with a resolution of 1,280×720-pixel bigger and better than the previous Note’s 5.3-inch screen. This gives a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 providing a full Super HD display. The pixel density is 267ppi which is no doubt very good. Another striking feature of the screen is its dual compatibility which means that it is sensitive to both stylus and your fingers but the stylus gives greater control when you are drawing or writing free style. The S pen adds stability and control.

The tablet can come with maximum 128 GB of memory which includes internal 64 GB + an external 64 GB memory card. The rear camera continues the legacy of Samsung’s 8 mega pixel lens. It is no doubt the best you can get with remarkable and astonishing results. It also includes a front camera for self-portraits. It includes some of the very exciting and useful features including Best Faces and Share Shot. The Best Faces feature allows you to take 20 pictures at a time and then select the best out of it. Share shoot allows for a fast way of sharing photos and videos.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II comes with the latest Android 4.0 Jelly Bean Operating System. It is the best, latest and the improved of all operating systems.

With the features given above (probably the best in the market) you should expect a high price to pay for. It is recommended for people with a high need of such gadget for their business etc.
