Sit up and Take Note!
the ultimate in smartphones
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a fantastic device that combines the latest technology with a sleek and sophisticated style.
What We Like
If you're looking for a smartphone that is packed with power, then the Galaxy Note 2 could definitely be the one for you! Keeping up with the latest in technology, Samsung have equipped this device with a quad-core processor that, at 1.6GHz, makes the Note 2 the fastest phone to be released up to date, whilst also enabling it to be quicker than a vast variety of laptops.
With 64GB of inbuilt memory and the ability to accept a microSDXC card of up to another 64GB, the Samsung Note 2 has by far enough storage capacity to satisfy even the fussiest of users, especially when you also consider the whopping 2GB of Ram that can be found here.
As you would hope to find on a newly released, high end smartphone, the Galaxy Note 2's screen produces fantastic images that are both bright and vivid, thanks to its Super AMOLED screen. However, some users may be disappointed to learn that, at 1280 x 720 pixels, the resolution here is less than what we got with the original Samsung Note.
Because the Note 2 has so much to offer, we were more than slightly concerned that the battery life on this new release would be shockingly bad, and that the device wouldn't be able to cope with all its new features. Samsung hasn't disappointed though, equipping the mobile with a 3100mAh power supply that ensures that the new Note 2 can last as long as any other high tech smartphone on the market.
What We Don't Like
The most obvious feature of the Galaxy Note 2 is its sheer size; at 151mm long, and 81mm wide, this latest release from Samsung is even bigger than its predecessor, something which many users will find off-putting. Although it may be thin enough to sit comfortably in one hand, this tablet-like device requires two to be used, which isn't exactly convenient. However, we were not really surprised to find that this is the case, especially as the original Note couldn't exactly be called small.
Whilst the size of the Samsung Galaxy 2 may be a problem for some, we cannot help but feel that this mobile is a brilliant device that deserves serious consideration by anyone looking to purchase a new smartphone.
The inclusion of the latest type of processor, the quad-core, along with the more than impressive 2GB of RAM ensures that this new release from Samsung is without doubt the quickest mobile phone on the market today, making it perfect for gaming and surfing the web.
Thanks to its improved battery life, and 4G technology, the Galaxy Note 2 is an ideal device for anyone looking to get the very best out of a new style smartphone.
