Hands on with the Samsung Galaxy Note II video roundup


When Samsung first launched the Galaxy Note, it received more criticism than praise. People said it was too big. A gimmick. And it had a stylus? It had to be a joke right? As it turns out, the Note was a huge hit. People couldn’t get enough of that vibrant display, the ultra-sensitive S Pen integration and sleek, surprisingly more pocketable than not design.

Yesterday, we got our first real taste of the true successor to the Galaxy Note throne. Rocking a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display at 1280×720, the Note II comes with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, a 3100 mAh battery, a backside illuminated 8 MP camera on the rear and a backside illuminated 1.9 MP in front, all wrapped up in Samsung’s custom version of Jelly Bean.

It sounds absolutely great on paper, but does that translate to a great first impression? We’ve gathered a list of the best hands on videos from around the web to give you an idea of just what people thought. Spoiler alert: it’s awesome.
