Samsung Galaxy Note II gets first official hands-on video
The Samsung Galaxy Note II might have already captured your heart with its 5.5-inch HD screen, quad-core processor and great new S Pen features, but if you want to understand just how good of a creative tool it can be, here is a detailed hands on with the device, posted by Samsung itself.

It goes from the design and feel of the second-gen Note, to the new layout of applications like the Gallery, making great use of that extra screen real estate and going to the plenty of creative applications for the S Pen and the apps that go with it.

Check it out, most of the features seem really accessible, even to people who are not in the arts, but will you really use them or are they more of a gimmick to you? Let us know in the comments below.

Wow, what a great device. But a little expensive though.

well crap, he cant use it and neither can I. get a GSM phone man! lol

Nah, dude, what makes the SGS3 outdated other than the exynos quad.. which may not make it to US shores again anyways? its nearly the same phone with a different overlay.

Just go to your best friend,www.xda-developers.com , and download a rom. Also you can probably find the Note launcher and apps on XDA as well so you can have yourself a mini-note. :)

its like.. samsung develops both Tinzen and Touchwiz or something.

i wonder if samsung is going to sue samsung for using the spiral? i bet they have a napkin drawing somewhere to prove prior art.

What a funny court appearance that would be, eh? :)

I must admit, these features have put my s3 to shame. Great job Samsung!

Now this is what innovation should be like, and not just some stupid rectangular shape, slide to unlock, bounce back gesture, generic icons that should be patented for.

Very usefull features. Definitely a phone for business/artist people. I love the new features but i don't think i'm gonna use them. so i don't see the urge to buy this phablet. A phone will do just fine for me :)

I seriously hope Samsung can pull off getting this phone on all the major U.S. carriers like they did with the S3. I really want it.

I was curious about that myself, but considering that Jellybean has Google Now (assuming Samsung will implement it on all their Jellybean phones), who cares?
