Sporting a surprisingly large screen for a Smartphone, the Samsung galaxy note 2 is a great device for all kinds of entertainment, be it browsing, gaming or watching high def videos.. But there’s a lot more to this baby than what meets the eyes. Smartphone giant Samsung looks all revved up and ready to take on its competitors with their new galaxy note 2. It’s well equipped with the best specs in the market. On offer are a super fast quad core processor, a very efficient 8 MP camera, and an extra large battery which lasts a long time irrespective of the screen size. The device runs on android jellybean and the S pen stylus that comes along with the phablet is more sensitive than ever before. The jellybean firmware makes the device a breeze to use with android making the interface much more beautiful and simpler. But with the pros also come the cons of the device. One of them is that it doesn’t have an HDMI out port and the response to the S pen stylus and apps are rather slow. But this in only a minor hitch when compared to the real problem- it’s humongous size. With a screen size of 5.5 inches, the device is just 1.1 inches short of being a tablet which also makes it practically very difficult to operate for the largest of hands. Carrying it around or fitting into one’s pocket also is a hassle. The device is a combination of abilities of a phone and a tablet, creating and consuming media than any other Smartphone currently on the market. How well the device will be received is hard to tell, but if size is something that doesn’t bother you too much then this device has quite a lot on offer. However, when compared to tablets from competitors such as Google and Amazon, this tablet doesn’t have enough oomph to fit into the same class. It’s also difficult to accept it as a phone because of the huge screen that’s a pain to use as a phone. So should we settle on calling it the love-child of a tablet and a smartphone? A phablet, tabphone or a smartlet maybe? We leave that up to you to decide!!!
