Other features of the device include an 8MP rear camera, a 1.9MP front camera and a 3,100mAh battery.
Talking about the design, it hardly clicks right on all the boxes. Samsung sticks to its plastic material which renders it a cheap look as compared to its rivals that built with more sturdy material. It is definitely a big phone with 5.9 inches tall by 3.2 inches wide by 0.37 inch thick and weighing 6.4 ounces. One would find a front-facing camera above the screen, along with a proximity sensor, Home button below the display, squeezed between touch-sensitive buttons for Menu and Back. The power button is on the right side with the volume rocker on the left, and the Micro-USB port on the bottom. The top is filled with the 3.5mm headset jack. On the rear side, there is camera lens and LED flash. At the bottom of the rear panel is the stylus slot with S Pen.
The Galaxy Note 2 seems to have checked all the boxes, and if you’re confused whether to buy the iPad and use a compact phone, or choose the well priced 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab, your decision-making process just got more complex. The Note 2 is a compelling device that allows you to do almost everything, except type a huge document or work on a complex Excel spreadsheet, but that’s something that takes some effort even on an iPad. In the presence of other large-screen devices, you won’t stand out in a crowd with the new Note 2 even when you have this phablet against your ear.
All in all, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a great device with its state-of-the-art technology, favorable design and upgradable operating system, especially for those looking for a mind blowing engaging mobile computing experience.
