We've had a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review unit in the newsroom and even Apple fan boys have been impressed with the current king of phablets. The smartphone has an amazing screen and was just put up against the iPhone 5 for review. If you want a device that combines the best features of a smartphone with the added benefit of having a small tablet screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the best choice.
The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5-inch 267 ppi (pixels per inch) 1280 x 720 HD Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (upgradable out of the box to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean), 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos Quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and HD recording, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, Enhanced S Pen, 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC (near field communications), built-in mobile hotspot functionality, GPS, microSD card slot with support for up to 64GB cards and a 3,100 mAh battery.
Samsung has announced that it will also be bringing many of the features found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the Galaxy Note 2 and will provide an OTA (over the air) software update in the future to add these features.
Amazon currently has the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in Titanium in stock and ready to ship within 24 hours. The phablet will cost you $99 when signing a new 2-year contract. Amazon is also throwing in free two-day shipping to sweeten the deal.
