Whats Cool About The Samsung Galaxy Note II

Hoping to build on the success it had with the Galaxy Note, Samsung has brought out a second generation ‘phablet’ device that blends the functionality of a smartphone with a tablet. So what’s different about the Galaxy Note II, and what makes it superior to its older brother? We’ve knocked up a little Galaxy Note 2 review to give you the lowdown.

Stylus stylings – One of the unique features of the Galaxy Note II is its S-Pen stylus, which allows users to navigate around the phone, annotate whatever’s on the screen, and utilise S-Pen optimised apps. If you’re a fan of art who likes sketching and whatnot, you can take a game of Draw Something to a whole other level using the S-Pen to gently shade and scribe with loads of detail.

Other stylus-related features include S-Memo, a useful app that lets the user jot down notes using the S-Pen, and the S-Planner, an organiser app where you can input your appointments and special dates using the stylus. Photo editing on the Note II is pretty impressive too – you can crop and move selected sections, annotate, and scribble using the S-Pen on photos taken with the handset’s 8 megapixel camera. There’s also a Share Shot camera mode that allows users to instantly upload images onto compatible devices in a 200ft range when they are connected to the same Wi-Fi Direct network.

Display and processor – Of course, we couldn’t discuss the Galaxy Note II and not mention its massive display. Sporting a whopping 5.5-inch HD super AMOLED screen, the Note II’s display really is its crowning glory. So, if you watch a lot of action films in high definition you’ll be able to see all the fine detail and brilliant colours of explosions and car chases, or if HD period dramas are more your thing those wonderful stately homes and their extravagant grounds will look vibrant.

That screen is also ideal for gaming as there’s more surface area meaning that you won’t obscure your view of the action when tapping away at onscreen controls. You also get a better view of the gameplay on a large display just because it’s physically bigger. There’s a 1.6GHz quad-core processor nestled beneath the chassis too, offering enough power to fuel gaming and multitasking with no annoying stutters or lag.

Boxed with Jelly Bean – The Galaxy Note II comes boxed with the newest Android operating system, Jelly Bean. This iteration has loads of great features, including the intuitive Google Now service that learns all about you, remembering things such as the routes you take regularly and things you search for, and then offers handy hints and tips when it senses you need it. It keeps you updated on weather, traffic and public transport via digital cards that flash up info. For example if you commute to work on a motorway notorious for jams, Google Now will remember your daily trip and offer traffic updates and an alternative route if there’s any delays .

Another nifty addition by Samsung is Pop-up Play, which allows you to minimise a video or movie into a smaller box, and multitask while it continues to play. You can check work emails, send texts, and even do your Christmas shopping online, all whilst the video plays in the little window on the screen.

With its big expansive HD screen, quad-core processor and S-Pen stylus, the Galaxy Note II is at the cutting edge of mobile technology. It bridges the gap between a smartphone and tablet brilliantly, and unless you’re adverse to large mobiles it’s actually hard to think of a good reason not to own this handset. So, if you’re looking for a new mobile we recommend you give Samsung Galaxy Note II some serious consideration.

EE GOES 4D TO LAUNCH 4G

2nd November 2012. London. London’s skyline was lit up last night as EE marked the launch of its new superfast 4G mobile and Fibre Broadband network with a historic 4D projection at London’s Battersea Power Station. In the biggest light show to ever be held at the iconic landmark, the projection was beamed across the entire 8,000 square meter façade of the former power station after a specially built screen – equivalent to the size of an Olympic swimming pool – was constructed between the iconic chimneys. It is a first in the London landmark’s 80 year history.

In what is expected to have been one of the final events to be held at the power station before its redevelopment, the projection used the very latest ‘4D’ technology to beam the light show onto the front of the building.

 

The projection was presented by EE as part of an event at the power station to celebrate the launch of EE in the UK. The fast paced 4 minute projection showed hundreds of animated light particles – representing the superfast EE network – being ‘created’ inside the power station. Viewers were then taken on a journey as the particles appeared to explode from inside the power station and out across the UK. The spectacular show was accompanied by an exclusive score developed by the critically acclaimed scratch DJ, DJ Yoda.

 

Thousands of people from around the UK took part in the celebrations after being invited to send a tweet to X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger’s dress – who joined the event wearing the UK’s first ever Twitter dress.
