Samsung’s followup to the Note maintains some of its best features – LTE capability and a handy stylus – then ups the ante with a bigger screen, a beefier battery, a speedier processor and Google’s latest OS. Perfect for those who crave a bigger window to the web, but don’t want to go full tablet.
At 5.5 inches, the Note II’s widescreen 720×1280 Super AMOLED screen is even bigger than its predecessor. And yet it still fits a (roomy) pants pocket.
Use the Note II’s extra real estate in conjunction with its 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU to run multiple apps on the same screen, side by side, with nary a stutter.
Google’s Latest & Greatest:
The Note II ships with Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) installed, no need to upgrade. Expect everything from superior voice search to speedier photo viewing.
Jacked with Juice:
Big, hungry screens need big, juicy batteries. The Note II solves this problem with a 3,100 mAh Li-ion battery that can power you through the day and night.
The Note II at a glance
That means: Incredibly fast speeds for streaming video, loading web pages, and grabbing apps from the Google Play store.
Gorilla Glass 2
That means: This tough glass compound, invented by accident a half-century ago, is what keeps your phone’s screen scratch-free.
That means: More than just a writing and doodling tool, Samsung’s stylus detects pressure and can be used like a mouse pointer when working with menus.
TouchWiz Nature UX
That means: Samsung’s latest custom Android overlay comes with such perks as motion-activated functions (e.g., shake device to update) and power-saving utilities.
