Samsung Galaxy Note II


Welcome Samsung’s powerhouse, the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The Galaxy Note II takes cell phones to another level of functionality and expectations with bridging the gap between cell phone and tablet.

With a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor running Android 4.1/JellyBean with a 64GB user memory and a microSD slot for up to 64GBs. Bottom line, this is one hardcore phone with tablet-like abilities.

The 5.5″ screen makes for easy viewing of apps, photos, videos and web browsing. The multi-window allows for easy transition from one page the next without the need to magnify 300% just to find the close-window option.

Another “smart” feature is the ability to adjust the screen positioning based on your hand dominance. For instance, for single hand texting, the keyboard can be set up to the left or right of the screen keeping your view to the digital world clutter free, at least from the phones perspective.

You might expect all this power would come at a premium when it comes to battery life. On the contrary, battery life is exceptional especially for normal use. Even with making regular use of the front and rear camera was a worry-free matter.

This device is very easy to use and intuitive, yet extremely functional. So much so that I’m creating this review using the pre-installed notepad app. This document was easily saved and submitted as a .pdf file for ease of transmission.

With Androids plethora or apps for business and fun along with the pre-installed features, the fun will be exploring and learning all the Galaxy Note II has to offer. This is one device you may be holding onto for awhile forgoing the maddening 6 month “upgrade” craze for the next latest gadget.
