Samsung GALAXY Note II offers "Smart Rotation"
posted by Alan F. / Oct 02, 2012, 8:28 PM
Samsung Galaxy S III was the first to debut "Smart Stay". With this feature, the front facing camera makes sure that you are still looking at the screen so that it doesn't turn off and go to sleep while you are in the middle of reading something.
Out of the box, "Smart Rotation" is off by default. But all you need to do is go to Settings> Display and turn it on. And remember, these are not Google-devised features for Android but are proprietary to Samsung devices. What "Smart" thing will the Korean manufacturer come up with next?
Just the other day, we showed you the multiwindow feature on the Samsung GALAXY Note II along with other features that Samsung included on a video about the device. Strangely enough, some units of the model are not being shipped with multiwindow capabilities.
- Display 5.5" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1600 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3100 mAh(16h 3G talk time)
Now. thats Cooool !!!!!

Enough with stories about GN II features! When is it shipping in the U.S.?! And in particular, when for VZW customers?

Man it just launched here in Bahrain...awesome!!! But there's a long list of pre-orders they are serving out...I m goona get one as soon as I can! The best thing about GNote 2 is not just the hardware, not even the softwate (Jelly Bean is awesome though) but its actually the neat little software optimizations and features added by Samsung that make the whole experience of the device simply awesome! This is going to be really hard to beat...its not about creating a 5 inch phablet or any product...its about creating an experience by which people always remember you

it will probably do the same as smart stay, in fact I believe if both are enabled will use the same moment to verify both

No one is making that mistake these days thanks to Apple and their never resting legal team.

Monstrous size is all what is keeping me from buying this. How about a G Note with stylus and all this in a 4.5 inch display?

See, that's the difference between Samsung & Apple. Samsung has really worked hard to differentiate themselves from other Android manufacturers with all these new little features that matter. Good Guy Samsung : Creates new innovations, Doesn't brag about it like it's the best thing since sliced bread. Scumbag Apple : Steals others innovations, brag like they created it and it's the best thing since sliced bread.
