SPONSORED: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Impressions

Samsung is all geared up for the Samsung Galaxy Note II. For those who have been on the gadget front lines, vehemently deciding between a Samsung Galaxy SIII, an iPhone 5 or this new Note II, we can understand how tough this choice can be. For one thing, between the Note II and the S III, they’re almost completely identical save for the screen real estate — but even that is pushing it as when you’re choosing between a 4.8″ and 5.5″ screen, at that point it really boils down to how big your physical pockets are.

Adding half an inch of screen turns the Galaxy Note II a tad shy of the 7″ big brother tablets that in all irony are already starting to retail for less than USD 0.00 (have a look at the Haipad tablet) and only half an inch shy of an Amazon Kindle eBook reader.

In terms of power and usability, the Galaxy Note 2 really doesn’t disappoint as Samsung is really cornering the “phablet” market with the Note’s previous success. Plus the fact that it has a stylus makes it a less formidable case study for another lawsuit with Apple.

In the Philippines, the Samsung Galaxy Note II will be available this coming October 16 2012.

Tech Specs:

Exynos 4412 chipset (Samsung has a tendency to make use of the more powerful Exynos graphics chip vs. NVNDIA’s Tegra chips)
Quad-core 1.6GHz CPU
microSD slot up to 64GB
5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 (1280 x 720 resolution)
8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash
3100mAh battery
Android Jelly Bean 4.1
