Samsung makes some great phones, but why they keep using these glossy plastics on their products? It looks and feels SOOOOO cheap. Seriously.

There are a few things to come out of this article.

1) "the perceivable sharpness of the screen is actually higher"
The new type of screen matrix will actually give a sharper screen despite a lower DPI :-).

2) The benchmarks show that the note 2 blows all other phones out of the water.

3) The screen is 11% brighter than the note.

4) Photo and video quality looks better than the note (personal opinion).

Also i am expecting the battery life to be around 25% better than the note based on the improvement of the S3 over the S2.

All in all a great phone, will be funny to watch the nokia and apple fans try an knock it down.... very few negatives with this phone boys :-)

That's what I love about Samsung they are always improving everything quickly. Just look at benchmarks especially in the browser, Samsung always have the best browsing experience, and it's the first phone to get less than a 1000 ms in sun spider, browser mark was good too.

Sorry android, whatever magic you're bringing, windows phone 8 is still smoother even in the low end smartphones. I'm not really interested in paying double or even triple the price to enjoy lag-free android.

A galaxy wonder user.
