With the new release of Galaxy Note II, the bar for new-age smart phones is set to be raised high up again, making it a more than healthy competition between Samsung and its rival companies. Here, is in brief what we think of the new Samsung Galaxy Note II.
To start off, the initial impression you get from it, quite like its predecessor, is that it is remarkably big. At 5.5 inches, it sure will give much confusion whether to call it a phone or a tablet. In the aesthetics department, it might look pretty close to a magnified version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, but it keeps in tune the physical features of the Galaxy Note and tweaks them to make it more users friendly handling-wise.
Samsung Galaxy Note II is sleeker, lengthier, but less wide than the Galaxy Note. At 177 g, it is lighter in weight and is 9.4 mm thick. It is all made of plastic, though, with the sides being provided with a metallic finishing. The S-pen stylus has been significantly redesigned, with new, improved technical specs, consisting of a 1024 pressure levels.
Talking about the rest of its features, the stand out is undoubtedly the packed up 3100 mAh battery. The 5.5 inch screen is all in HD AMOLED display (720 x 1280 resolution), along with a high performance quad core processor of 1.6 GHz. Not to forget a hefty 2 GB internal RAM to go with.
