Hands On: Samsung Galaxy Note II

Posted:  September 3, 2012   By:    30 comments   


At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss the Galaxy Note II as a bigger Galaxy S III with more RAM and a faster processor but Samsung wants to tell you that there is more to the Galaxy Note II than you think.

This 13-minute video official hands-on video highlights pretty much all the great features in the Galaxy Note II. It presence a pretty convincing case showing that Galaxy Note II is so much more than a bigger screen and better processing power.

Here are some of the cool features that we like are:
Best Faces: Say you’re taking a group shot of your friends; Best Faces takes a burst and lets you choose the best looking faces of each individual in the picture. Once you’ve selected all the best faces, the Galaxy Note II will create a composite of the image with all the best faces you’ve chosen.

Air View: This is a really cool feature as well allowing you to preview document contents, calendar entries and pictures in albums just by hovering the S-Pen over the content that you want to preview. Not just that, Air View works for videos as well allowing you to preview videos just by hovering over a video thumbnail.

Quick Command: Quick Commands are customisable S-Pen gestures that make accessing your most used apps and features quick and easy. You use the S-Pen and draw a customised gesture and the command you want the gesture to do (tweeting for example). Once you’ve completed the gesture, the tweet is ready to go. It really is an amazing feature.

Screen Recorder: Screen Recorder allows you to record your actions and inputs on the screen and share it across. The feature can also record audio so you can annotate while drawing a sketch of a rabbit for example.

New Gallery Features: There are some really nice viewing options in the built-in gallery application of the Note II. Albums are also very easy to create as well.

Judging by the video, the Galaxy Note II is shaping up to be a runaway success for Samsung. Even if you think the 5.5-inche screen is huge you can’t help but to think that Samsung has packed some really innovative features into its latest flagship.

Check out the video and let us know what you think.

Why SC so quiet on the impending release of iphone5?

    mydragoon

    SC has been very quiet even on a lot of news, updates, etc… when got updates, they seem like old news.

    SC nemesis site actually provides more news these days…

bcos nobody's interested with Iphone anymore. There's a lot of haters/Kanti-Apple out there now.

kazai

after won 1 billion court case, apple get more haters in return.

    Loman

    After winning 1 billion court case, Apple still wants to sue Samsung again for their s3 and galaxy note. What the hell Apple? Not enough sues eh? For sure this will bring more haters. Looking forward for this product! I want this so-much-different-than-iphone galaxy note 2!!

    EastZ

    if it bunch of useless features for you, mean it not suit for your style; some may find these features useful. people are not same ;p

alexwong

iOS 6 sucks. obviously everything that is new is already in android ICS. still all the sheeples will continue to say that there an innovator! god creates fools but life must go on. the most we can do is ignore.

Kev

Did I start an apple vs Samsung war here?

Guys, nothing is perfect in this world. As it was said, beauty lies on the eyes of beholder. If u prefer iPhone/Samsung, so be it. Nothing to fight for, we don't gain anything.

Cheers! 😉

    Loman

    As there are any latest updates from SC, this war is just a passing time for people only. Soyacincau, please update the latest annoucement by NOKIA AND MOTOROLA. I know the details but some other readers dont.
