Video: Samsung Posts Fully Detailed Hands-on with Galaxy Note 2

If you can’t get enough of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note II, Samsung Mobile has gone ahead and posted their first official hands-on video with the device. In the video, the device’s hardware and software take center stage as every bit of this device is gone over in full detail by a well-versed Samsung employee. 

The video does run a hefty 13 and a half minutes, but hey, if you want to know everything there is to know about this device, then this is all you need.

    I like the capability to capture boobs in the scrapbook like the perv in the video did at the 8:40 mark.

    To me, it seems like there are way too many things to remember. (example: if you just hold up and home then press the S pen with your left pinky you can view 2 movies at once!)

    who is going to remember all of this?

  • corymcnutt

    Nice! I sure hope it comes to Verizon!

  • Was looking forward to the iphone 5 but this phone looks great.

  • Mei

    Doesn’t look that big from S3. I really want the pen. I wished it came with S3 (no, the “S-Pen” that S3 has now is just a gimmick. It doesn’t work as well as the one for the Note).

    “Paper Artist” app seems to be just like Paper Camera. I wonder if from same developer.

    I’m not the biggest fan of using a stylus, not that you couldn’t use the phone without it.

    • AJA0

      If you can use the phone without it, then why complain that it’s there? The more choices/options/features, the better.

      • Paul

        I wasn’t complaining it’s there, I was just a little disappointed that most of the video was about features using the stylus. Better than nothing though.

  • iPhone 5!

    I’m going to have to real world test this soon, it’s got some nice features. If they work in reality (business environment) as well, or near as well as the marketing, then it’s a maybe baby.

    I’m not one to use a phone that size, but this looks really nice.

  • jim

    perfect phone for those of you that carry a purse

  • cns2007

    Really liked the photo editing demoed at the end. That live scroll and apply effects feature is pretty cool.

  • I thought quad core and LTE werent playing nice with each other? Or am I wrong?

    • mainly not playing nice with U.S lte, but seem to be working fine with Germany and South korea Lte

    • Nathan Buth

      Not all quad cores, just the Tegra 3 if I am right in my thinking. This one is using an Exynos so it should be able to avoid the problems.

  • Beezey

    really want to see more 5″+ devices from other manufactures, once you have the note you just cant go back to regular sized phones

  • CurrentWeb

    I really hope the rumors of multiple Nexus devices in 2013 is true. I really want a Nexus the size of the Note, but also for there to be one with a smaller screen, one with a keyboard, ect. The Note II looks amazing, but I can’t bring myself to leave the Nexus brand.

  • mustbepbs

    They even hired Sasquatch to do the demo. Good play, Samsung.

    • Stevedub40

      Ah, I thought he was just wearing a wool sweater lol.

      • cooksta3276

        Kind of looks like Tim Cook’s arm…

    • normmcgarry

      That man has massive hands too. The phone doesn’t even look big.

    • michael arazan

      Is that a Note 2 in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

  • YankInDaSouth

    Until Samsung improves their radios I can not foresee myself getting another of their phones … sadly

    • YankInDaSouth

      Great detailed video … but how well does it function as a PHONE?!?!

      • hkklife

        We need a stunningly high-end Moto phablet running JB in the worst way possible, not all of these midrange RAZR refreshes with specs from 8 months ago.

        Please Moto, do something to surpass Samsung’s nasty Touchwiz, plastic, weak radios, and capacitive buttons!

    • Jim McClain

      My wife S3 does real good and i have a nexus that’s rooted and just flashed the new radios from verizon jelly bean and we both are great

  • josh

    Looks really responsive. Well done Samsung

    • I am agreeing with you. Samsung is doing great things lately.
