The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is still one of the best phablets available and new deal from Amazon is offering the Verizon version for $99.99.
The Galaxy Note 2 was designed to be a great mixture of smartphone and small tablet and Amazon's $99.99 is a nice discount compared to the $199 price tag Verizon is currently charging customers online and in its retail stores. If you're looking to make the move to the phablet world at an affordable price, the Galaxy Note 2 is one of the best choices.
One of the best features of the Galaxy Note 2 is its S Pen, which allows you to write on the device in a more natural way than pecking away at a virtual keyboard. It also has unique features that allow you to preview emails and more, by holding the S Pen above the screen of the Note 2.
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED Plus display with a 1280 x 720 resolution and a pixel density of 267 pixels per inch (ppi). It currently runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but is upgradable out of the box to Android 4.1.2 and is expected to receive an over the air (OTA) update to Android 4.3. The device is powered by a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos quad-core processor and includes 16GB of internal storage, as well as 2GB of RAM.
It packs an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and HD recording and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. The phablet includes enhanced S Pen functionality and allows you to use the stylus to write in a more natural way. Its wireless capabilities include a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and built-in mobile hotspot functionality. Users will be able to add even more memory by using its microSD expansion slot, which supports up to 64GB microSD cards. The phablet packs a removable 3,100 mAh battery.
You can purchase the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for $99.99 from Amazon when signing a new 2-year contract. The retailer is also throwing in free two-day shipping with all orders.
