Galaxy Note II

We’ve just gotten Samsung Galaxy Note II which is a 16GB version in Titanium Grey. In the hands, it build feels rather similar as the Galaxy S III albiet a bit larger. In comparison with the original Galaxy Note, the width doesn’t feel much different but it is noticably taller.

On first impression, the new enhanced S-Pen is really an improvement and we like that the Note II opens up a customised S-Pen home screen the moment the stylus is being detached. Moving between apps and home screens feels very snappy.
