With fall and the approaching winter months, it's always an exciting time for Android fans as new devices are announced (and released) in groves. One such device is the Samsung Galaxy Note II which brings some pretty impressive specs, as well as a slightly larger screen.
I remember when the original Galaxy Note came out. A lot of people thought it would be a flop and many made fun of the stylus, referencing the pre-tablet, PDA days. However, Samsung proved everyone wrong and showed that a phablet has a lot of potential.
If you're a Sprint customer, there's some good news. The Galaxy Note II will be making its way to the carrier come October 25th. While considerably more than its son, the Galaxy S III, it'll run $299 on a new two year contract. Sure, a bit pricey, but when you factor in the size of the device, it makes sense.
Here's a quick recap of the specs:
- 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display at 720 x 1280 (267 ppi)
- Corning Gorilla Glass 2
- 1.6GHZ Exynos 4412 Quad quad-core processor
- Mali-400MP GPU
- 2GB RAM
- Up to 64GB internal storage with microSD card support up to 64GB
- 8 megapixel rear-facing camera
- 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera
- LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
- 3,100 mAh battery
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
As you can see, the Galaxy Note II isn't lacking in terms of specs and hopefully proves to be an awesome phone. With the massive battery, early testing has shown that the Note II gets a full day's charge under moderate use and then some.
