Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is one of most favorite and hottest selling Android smartphone currently available in the market. The Android users are opting in for Galaxy Note 2 LTE version on Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and all the other major cellular network in the U.S. and unlocked 3G international version all around the world.
The Galaxy Note 2 is currently running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean officially and expected to receive Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update soon.
Here are few of top said features and specs details of Samsung Galaxy Note 2:
- With its 1.6 GHz quad-core engine and 2GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note II can stake a claim to the title of the World’s Most Powerful Smartphone. It really does fly; with the help of Jelly Bean, it is a tad quicker than the Galaxy S 3. The touch screen is so responsive, in fact; you will find apps accidentally opening all over the show.
- The Galaxy Note II is rocking a gorgeous 16:9, 720p, 5.55-inches Super AMOLED display. All those screen needs some juice, so it is backed up by a 3100 mAh battery, with the stamina for nearly two days of use. Quite impressive. Still at 183g, you would not want to hold it to your ear for long
- It can be tricky to keep steady when you are setting up a shot, but the 8 Megapixel camera matches the Galaxy S 3 for excellent images. It also rocks an LED flash, smooth 1080p video and a 20 photo burst mode. You can also take skills while filming, which is useful for the combo photographer/ director crowd.
- The Galaxy Note II rocks Samsung’s multi screen feature, allowing two Samsung apps to be displayed at once. Text looks smooth and colors remain vibrant (if a little blue) whether you are watching a movie, browsing or writing emails - or trying to do all three at once, via multi-tasking and Popup Play.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Features
King of Pop-up
A smart phone version of flitting through open tabs, Popup Browser is our favorite of the Note II’s new features. Clicking on links in Facebook throws up the option to view the page in a floating window, and there’s plenty of power to keep things snappy. You also get the S 3’s Popup Play, which plays videos on top of other apps.
AirView is a clever idea – hover over gallery folders, emails or video timelines with the S Pen to see previews – but it’s not quite intuitive enough yet. It can be tricky to remember when to press down on the S Pen button and you do not always get enough info to justify not clicking through to what you want to see.
The Galaxy Note 2 rocks some TouchWiz UI tweaks to Jelly Bean, but home screens and widgets look largely familiar. The search bar also gives access to Google Now – the all – seeing app that helps plan your life with ‘cards’ full of weather, transport, calendar and activity info. Privacy concerns? It’s opt-in only.
S-Note with S-Pen
S Note is essentially a place for you to be messy. Samsung’s handwriting recognition has come on leaps and bounds, and when its button is held down, the S Pen can also be used to crop around images or an email. It is useful but ain’t pretty.
