The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – Broad Appeal To Those Who Want A Large Screen
This phone is certainly too large for one to consider it just a phone. It is probably not a tablet. It is what is being termed a “phablet” nowadays. It has a functional stylus, which operates very nicely in conjunction with the device and has proved popular with the users. The device has been extremely popular amongst the techie community who have bought this in their hordes.
The Phone Dimensions
The phone comes in at 146.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm. It weighs in at 178 grams. Considering the enormity of the phone, it is remarkably light. However, it doesn’t feel cheap, it feels premium. The Galaxy line all seem to weigh less than their specifications would suggest. This has held true of the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S2, and of course, the Samsung Galaxy S3. In appearance, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 seems to be a bigger version of the Galaxy S2. It is minimalist and functional in design – a really nice piece.
The front-facing camera is 2 megapixels, which has become the general standard for high-end phones these days. It is sufficient for Skype chat and video conferencing. The rear-facing camera is 8 megapixels with a flash. The lens glass protrudes from the back of the phone. In my opinion, this should be recessed as the lens sticking out makes it more prone to damage. I can’t for the life of me think why they have designed it this way.
The screen on the Samsung Galaxy Note is 5.3 inches and measures in at 1280 x 880. Samsung has long been known for its amazing display quality. They even provided screens to Apple until the recent legal problems between the two. The Note screen is clear, full of vibrancy, and looks absolutely great. It has 285 pixels per inches and uses Super AMOLED technology.
The Processor, Battery, and Memory
The phone benefits from a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and purchasers can choose from either 16 or 32 gigabytes of memory capacity. The phone provides the opportunity for expansion of memory through a microSD port enabling another 32 gigabytes to be added.
The battery is 2500mAh and provides ample power to see users through the day. Despite the large battery, the huge screen will probably run it down quicker than you would expect but it should still be enough for most people.
It’s amazing how wide an appeal this phone has had. One would expect it to be the domain of professional people, but students, and even pensioners, have sought it out and love the experience.
The phone is getting cheaper as time goes by and new opportunities in the marketplace come around. For little more than £350 or £400, you can get a hold of this amazing phone-tablet.
