Last year at IFA, Samsung introduced a new class of handset with the launch of its original Galaxy Note, smartphones with huge displays (5-inch+) that we internally call ?phablets?. Its successor, the Galaxy Note 2 features a larger display (5.5?), a faster quad-core processor, increased RAM (2 GB), Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) and an awesomely enhanced S-Pen stylus for sketching or writing directly on the phone. Given the state-of-the-art spec list, the Galaxy Note 2 should be really fast and deliver high performance.
Some people would argue that this is not a phone anymore, since it is too large to carry in the pocket and also that you may look ridiculous with this gigantic phone on your cheek when you place a phone call. However, I usually get tremendous feedback regarding the form factor from men who wear jackets (with a large internal pocket) and women who carry purses. I personally love the device (version 1 and 2) and, to challenge the size argument, Hubert did carry it regularly in his jeans? front pockets and he was fine.
