Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to The Samsung Galaxy Note 2

6

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone is the company’s latest Android device, which was first officially announced at the IFA 2012 conference in Berlin, Germany on August 29.

The device is the second of its kind for Samsung, the first being the original Galaxy Note which exceeded many critics initial expectations.

Users of the current Galaxy Note may be wondering if they should upgrade to the Galaxy Note 2 when it’s released later this year.

Here are the reasons why you should upgrade:

Bigger Display

The original Galaxy Note packed a gorgeous 5.3-inch display; however, the Galaxy Note 2 is rocking a solid 5.5-inches worth of Super AMOLED screen real estate. The other big change here is the screen aspect ratio, which has been changed from 16:10 to 16:9.

Faster Processor

The Galaxy Note 2 is a speed demon when compared to the original. This baby is blazing with a 1.6GHz quad core processor, while the Galaxy Note could only manage a 1.2GHz dual core processor at the helm of things. If you are truly considering taking the plunge in upgrading to the Galaxy Note 2, then a faster processor should sway you over.

More RAM

Samsung went all out with the Galaxy Note 2; the company slapped the device with 2GB worth of RAM, a 100 percent increase on the RAM in the original Galaxy Note. It’s funny, because many computers these days are still packed with a 1GB RAM.

More Megapixel on the Camera

The existing Galaxy Note has an 8 megapixel camera and rumors have indicated that the Galaxy Note 2 may ship with a 12 megapixel camera and improved optics.

Galaxy S3 like Design

The first thing an user will notice of the Galaxy Note 2, is how similar the design is to Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone.

Always Better With 4G LTE

The Galaxy Note 2 will be fully 4G LTE enabled for lightning fast download speeds.

Better Features? Bigger Battery

Samsung didn’t shy away with the Galaxy Note 2 battery, with 4G LTE, a bigger display and a faster processor at hand, a powerful battery is needed. Thankfully, the device will come packaged with a 3200 mAh battery, a vast improvement from the 2500 mAh found in the Galaxy Note

    "downside here is the screen aspect ratio, which has been downgraded from 16:10 to 16:9" Around these parts, we call that "fragmentation"

    8 megapixel--where did you come up with 12 megapixel? Did you watch the IFA in Berlin? Also it would be nice if you put a Date on your article so people know if this is old information before IFA or a new update that came after IFA and they decided to go from 8 to 12 megapixel. And by the way--16:9 is not a downgrade, movies come in 16:9 ratio so if your phone, tv, etc are 16:10 you will watch movies with a black frame. With a 16:9 you won't have a black frame--it's an upgrade (a good thing.)

    16:9 is better for viewing movies and gaming. I'm figuring that's why they made the change. Now you won't see the black bar on the screen because the movie will fit properly and games won't be scrunched to fit the 16:10 aspect ratio.

    If your managing editor didn’t say the following to you, he or she should be fired. “Oh my God! How can you so thoroughly fu<k up such a simple report!? Half of the specifications you listed are utterly wrong. Is there a medical reason for you being incapable of verifying your facts or proofreading your copy?” Bar none, this is the most pathetic post-release ‘news’ article on Samsung’s Galaxy Note II in the English-speaking media. The release of this garbage makes it clear you have utterly no journalistic discipline nor professional standards. The original Note had a 1.4 Ghz processor, not 1.2, showing you couldn’t even get the publicly available specs right for a device that’s been on the market for full year. The battery capacity you listed is wrong. The lawsuit award you listed is wrong as well. By the way, how much crack did you smoke before coming up with your fantasy about the camera? The 12 megapixel camera was pure unsubstantiated rumor and was thoroughly discredited on August 29 with Samsung’s official release. As if totally missing the mark on the camera’s specifications wasn’t bad enough, you completely fabricated a Samsung position regarding it. This is absolutely inexcusable. Seriously, WTF! The author(s) of this story has zero credibility and it’s little wonder why he/she didn’t attach their name(s) to it. This website should immediately publish a thorough retraction while listing everyone responsible in an effort to repair a genuinely damaged reputation.
