Samsung not understanding what made the Note-1 so popular : the fact that it's a phablet ... with the tablet-like aspect ratio of 16:10
By narrowing it down to 16:9, they've gone BACK in the direct of a phone again.
Raw screen-size is not what made the Note-1 so popular, but aspect ratio.
This in itself wouldn't be a complete deal-killer - but everyone who was waiting for them to drop the dreaded Pentile display will be staying away from the Note-2.
All they had to do was add the extra two cores and gig of RAM, Jellybean and a 5.5" Super AMOLED Plus 16:10 screen ... and they'd have had a KILLER product!
But once again, their lack of market insight and consumer savvy has resulted in yet another coul-have-been.
Missed a big trick there, Samsung.
ipad mini died after release of note ii, great device, samsung great #!
why should there be a 12mp camera? are you blowing up your pictures to A1 size all the time?
What!? Note II with smaller resolution than note?
Note II = 1280 x 720
Note = 1280 x 800

Anonymous, 30 Aug 2012Cool phoneblet!! but I dont get some people...what other way is there to shape a phone,tablet... moreWell said. I don't understand some expectation of some people. Soon they'll say they want a freakin 100 MP camara on a phone. Please go buy yourselves camares. They wont even use the bloody things. Just for bragging..
the most important, what kind of monster inside the this note 2...
not just camera or screen type..all user not use smart phone more than 12hrs for taking photo's or recording video.Most of user user screen protector (Private, 3D, finger free, anti shade or crystal clear).
so..what the meanings of this thing??..iPS, Super iPS, Super Amoled or Super Amoled HD just a spec..the most important is RAM capacity, Internal storage + external availability, CPU (Dual or Quad Cores), GPU for Graphic and what the kind of chipset..
..What say u??..
for me..this is monster what i waiting for..hope i can get A.S.A.P. i wish it available stock from tomorrow....Plssss i want now.
Grandmaster, 30 Aug 2012Nice specs. But I thought the aspect ration of 10:16 will be maintained as in Samsung Galaxy N... moreAn 8 MP camera phone can take better photos than one with 12 MP. I am sure Samsung is already working on a good camera phone. They used to be the best in 2004, 2005, and 2006.
Amoled is a complete crappy, inaccurate and unnatural display. SONY and LG recent LCD displays are wayyy! Better than this.
Nice specs. But I thought the aspect ration of 10:16 will be maintained as in Samsung Galaxy Note I. Why not consider 9.6:16 (as in HTC HD2 & Galaxy SII) as another alternative.
Pixel density also dropped (~267 ppi pixel density).
For 10:16 use 800 x 1280 pixels pixels, (~274 ppi pixel density)
For 9:16 use 768 x 1280 pixels pixels, (~271 ppi pixel density)
8MP for camera is disappointing. We expect 12MP main camera and 3.1MP front camera.
Hope to expect dual sim version.
Let's see what iPhone 5 brings to the table, other wise I'm going with this.
It's the dawning of a new era with everything on 1 device mobile,tab & laptop !
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2012Optimus TRUE HD IPS DISPLAY IS FAR BETTER. than samsung super amoled display.
13mp camera of ... moreYou are right. . But in terms of speed , procesing samsungs are far better than lg , htc or even sony (in android makers) afterall they use exynos
and if ur talking about camere then iphone 4s and xperia s (even one x) is better than s3, . But it don't meant that it's bad phone
[deleted post]why boost with samsung who manufacture expensive phones that bearly last 3 months? Stop wasting your your money.
