Description

The Samsung Galaxy Note II for AT&T dwarfs the competition with its massive HD Super AMOLED display, which is also brighter and larger than the one on its predecessor. The screen has a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels and measures 5.5 inches in diagonal. Delivering all the processing power is a quad-core Exynos 4412 chip clocked at the whopping 1.6GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM, which is, without a doubt, a very capable hardware combination. On the back of the device resides an 8-megapixel camera with back-side illuminated sensor for better low-light performance, while a 1.9-megapixel front-facing cam, also of the BSI kind, makes video chats possible. The humongous 3,100mAh battery should be well capable of lasting through a day of moderate to heavy usage. The device relies on 4G LTE connectivity for accessing the internet whenever Wi-Fi isn't available.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 265 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
