It’s almost the size of a tablet, but it has the functions of a phone and what is a mix of the two? A ‘phablet.’
You might not like the word but there is really no other way to quite describe a Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Measuring at 151.1 x 80.5 x 9.4 mm (HxWxD) matched with a 5.5” screen and weighing in at 183 grams, it is about 10% larger than the Galaxy SIII but only marginally larger than it’s predecessor the Galaxy Note.
The main selling point of this device is the “S-Pen” which works specially alongside the phone as it notices when the pen is removed and automatically opens to the note maker.
The S-Pen also has a small button on the side, allowing you to grab items in certain applications, and for those who don’t consider themselves very creative the S-Pen does encourage you to use the various applications (e.g. Paper Artist) in a different way.
With a 1.6Ghz Quad-core and Android OS Jellybean also works exceptionally well with no noticeable lagging or freezing, along with additional features like multi-screen, which works even better with the S-Pen.
The impressive battery life is great for on the go and the high drain devices.
