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.
