Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Intro
We’ve made it clear that this is a big phone, but to be more specific it has a 5.5 inch 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display. The pixel density of 267 pixels per inch is reasonable if nothing to write home about, but the Galaxy Note 2 is capable of bright images and rich colours, so things still look really good on the screen. 5.5 inches might sound a bit big to easily use, but Samsung thought about that and has included a handy ‘S Pen’ stylus to help you make full use of it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a powerful 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, so you can multi-task to your heart’s content without slowing it down. It also has a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built in storage along with a micro SD card slot that supports cards of up to 64GB.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 makes a pretty decent camera too, with an 8 megapixel sensor, a 1.9 megapixel secondary snapper and the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30fps.
Running Android 4.1.2 it’s a couple of minor releases behind, but with Samsung’s feature packed TouchWiz interface on top you’re not likely to notice. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also has a 3100 mAh battery to keep it going all day and all night and it supports Ultrafast 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
