Description

First thing you notice about the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note II is the huge HD Super AMOLED display occupying most of its front side. It measures 5.5-inches diagonally and has a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, which single-handedly cements the device in the "phablet" category. Under the hood one will find a very potent 1.6GHz quad-core processor, namely the Exynos 4412 by Samsung, backed up by 2GB of RAM for uncompromised performance and seamless multitasking. On the back of the jumbo-sized smartphone 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:

    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.

Technology

  • CDMA:

    CDMA - Code Division Multiple Access. A technique of multiplexing, also called spread spectrum, in which analog signals are converted into digital form for transmission. For each communication channel, the signals are encoded in a sequence known to the transmitter and the receiver for that channel. The foremost application is digital cellular phone technology from QUALCOMM that operates in the 800MHz band and 1.9GHz PCS band. CDMA phones are noted for their excellent call quality and long battery life.

  • Positioning:

    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.
