Samsung Galaxy Note II 16GB Smartphone Review


When Samsung launched the Galaxy Note Smartphone last year, the sheer size of the phone shocked many consumers. The Galaxy Note was hands down the largest smartphone that we have ever seen. It measures in at 5.75-inches long, 3.25-inches wide, and just under half an inch thick. When we first started using the device, we found it to be at the upper edge of comfort, and that it would just barely fits in a pair of jeans. It was like Samsung was creating a device for people like Shaquille O'Neal or something!

That said, Samsung sold over 10 million Galaxy Note smartphones in the first nine months alone. It turns out that people really loved the size of the device and that the Galaxy Note includes a stylus, which Samsung called the 'S Pen'. The hardware specs weren't bad either as the most popular version of the phone shipped with a peppy dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 (APQ8060 1.5 GHz) processor with the Adreno 220 GPU and 1GB of RAM. Top that off with a 5.29" HD Super AMOLED display with RGBG-Matrix (Pentile) and a nice 1,280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution that is protected by Gorilla Glass and you have a winner on your hands. Samsung has done a great job with this phone over the past year when it comes to software support and has rolled out many updates. For example the phone originally launched with Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread), but depending on the region, has rolled out Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and Android 4.1 (Jellybean) to customers. While the Galaxy Note has no doubt been a success for the company, it is time to move on and Samsung recently announced the successor to the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II.
