The interwebs contains more than enough well written in-depth reviews so i wont go into too mych detail. Here we go:
Android OS, v4.1.1 (Jelly Bean)
Chipset:Exynos 4412 Quad
CPU :Quad-core 1.6 GHz
Sensors: Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer
Camera: 8 MP, 3264x2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
This one is an excellent "Phablet" device, even if the competition at the moment is a bit scarce.
( My previous experience includes the fairly outdated ZTE Light (V9) with 7 inch display and GSM radio .)
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 certainly sets a standard with this one.
The feel i got was similair to the one i felt buying our 40 inch TV:
" - Oh my god, it's too big!"
Few days later the size did not bother at all.
Same goes with my experience on Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Yes ,it is a whopping 5.5 inch Phablet.
But it does fit in my jeans pocket, (even if one corner does peek out and I instinctively feel like not squatting as much with it in my pocket.)
The 2GB of ram helps performance significantly and the S-Pen features are rich, in fact so rich i decided to save learning those to later.
One small itch i got with the S-Pen is the tip of the pen being hard plastic and not the softer kind of tip with foam rubber .
I understand this is propably due to the S-Pen Hover function and well, you cant just win them all.
I also noticed more "Bloat" (Samsung delivered apps ) on the Galaxy Note 2 than i had when i first started my Galaxy S (I9000).
At first i was cool with it, playing around and getting to know the phablet, but after a while i asked myself:
-Will i ever use "S-Suggest"?
That started a chain of events that led me to XDA Developers forums trolling and hey presto!
I now have a stunning Galaxy Note 2 with just the apps i need .
( I wont go into detail on how that chain of events went, if youre curious head over to the above mentioned haven for Android Developers and Fanboys .)
- Big screen, 5,5 inch is what you get and it sure does make a lasting impression.
- Performance, Quad Core CPU and 2 GB of ram. More than i have on the laptop writing this. Do i really need that ? Propably not but is sure is cool!
-Bit of much software out of the box on the device,
-Hard tip stylus.(Tastes differ, this might suit others.)
