Not two, not three, not four; This phone’s display is 5.5 inches


“When LeBron James was choosing his next smartphone, he wanted something unique–something that would turn heads but could also make day-to-day tasks effortless. Something that had all the functional capabilities of a smartphone and all the creative elements of a tablet. With its fine-tuned S Pen, enhanced multitasking functions and beautiful 5.5″ Super Amoled screen, the Galaxy Note II was the Best of Both. Learn more about why Lebron chooses the Note II as his everyday device”

    I figure he chose it because he gets paid to do so.

      His twitter account also sent out tweets from the device, but Twitter no longer shows which client uploaded the image.

      Or because it’s an awesome phone and he has huge hands?

      • skugern

        LeBron holding that phone is the same as me holding an original Galaxy S.

      • Richard Yarrell

        The BEST DEVICE PERIOD. LeBron James knows the deal time for others to recognize… November 15th It will be mines…

        • squiddy20

          What happened Dick? Just 4 comments before this one, you posted that you would have it November 1st. Don’t you brag about being able to “get whatever device [you] want whenever [you] want it”? What happened to that nonsense? Aren’t you “rolling with the big boys”?

        • Michael Stivic

          Time to recognize? Mines? Jesus Christ, just because you’re an ignorant porch monkey didn’t mean that your imaginary phone has n*igger speak built in to the autocorrect. Ebonics isn’t a language, Richard. It’s just for ignorant n*ggers. Just because you’re retarded doesn’t mean that you have to act like a n*gger as well. Grow the fuck up and spare me the bullshit response about racism. I’m not racist,I just hate n*ggers. They should put you on chimpout.

          • G-Man

            ohh, Michael you soooo suck!!!

    • lorenzoercoli

      he wanted to have an iPhone5, but looking at the Apple advertising he noticed to have an oversized thumb for it

  • Nate B.

    Smart way to makes sales for sure. Still a solid device at the end of the day. Not for me though.

    • jamal adam

      I assume that this will be airing at tonight’s NBA season opener Heat vs. Celtics and what better way to advertise their phone than tonight. Smart move on Samsung’s part.

    • yankeesusa

      I agree about this being a great device but not for everyone. I finally got my hands on one and I decided that I will get it. At first I thought it was too big but after using it at the store that screen and smooth os just makes me want it even more. I can’t wait.

  • JS_215

    Lebron holding that phone is like me holding the iPhone 5. In other words, it’s tiny to him.

  • Smart_Girl

    > No two, not three, not four….

    Do you own many cell phones with 2 inch screens????

    • R.S

      I currently don’t own a phone with a 2 or 3 inch screen but I have in the past. I’m sure I’m not the only one considering how small phones got for a while.

    • ags29

      You don’t get it.. He’s using the “not two, not three, not four..” quote from the infamous “taking my talents to South Beach” debacle.

      d -_- b

    • alex w

      It’s a reference to Lebron saying the Heat would win “not one, not two, not three” etc championships with him, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. A nice sports crossover reference I didn’t get at first. (Hey, nice pun other Alex, thanks, alex!)

      Samsung Blackjack II – 2.4″ screen; still have, but don’t use it anymore

  • ohhhh man

    man i cant wait until i can upgrade in April i want galaxy note 2. i could upgrade now but im gonna have to renew my contract and i only have 5gb and this phone is hspa+42 and once tmobile turn on the switch to their lte network im gonna be needing that unlimited data plan. but im not looking forward dropping 360 for the phone.

  • Ryan

    Ha.. I like the subtle input with his license plate. “Earned 1″ …right Lebron. Michael earned not one, not two, not three, etc… I don’t blame you, but your’s isn’t nearly as impressive as Michael’s.

  • http://clarklab.net Clark Wimberly

    They showed this video at the New York event. They even joked that they didn’t just pick him for his huge hands.

  • pjamies

    I think they should have showed him doing more with the phone besides tweeting out pics of himself!
    They could have showed him bumping the phone with friends to share play-lists or shown him playing with the cameras panoramic features, or having him send pics to other friends sitting beside him.. etc
    Samsung has to show how even a pro basketball player can easily use all of the functionality-capability this phone has built in to it ..
    Another wasted commercial … wow

    • nivekkev

      Gonna have to agree with you here, this does nothing for the phone at all. I really like this phone and I am not impressed at all with anything in this commercial. Those that don’t know about the phone still won’t know about this phone after watching this…

  • Esoth

    This is the sort of smart advertising that has made Samsung the number 1 android manufacturer. I’ve always liked HTC, but they could really learn a thing or two from Samsung about advertising…

    • ChrisLH

      Yep, exactly. Plus, Samsung has worked to make Touchwiz useful and relatively lightweight compared to Sense. HTC needs to change its strategy – the hardware is top notch, but the software bogs it down and nobody knows about their products. Change those two things and it will really help turn things around.

  • Wesley

    When they say, “The next big thing,” they really mean it lol. It is the perfect phone for big guys like him. If I were using it, people would look at me and ask, “Why is that guy holding a tablet up to his head and talking to it?” :p

  • Pavan

    Soon smartphones would have a ‘big & tall’ category…just saying..

  • Nathan D.

    Wow just, wow.

  • Kevin E.

    I have the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy s3.
    The Note 2 is like so freaking cool it fits right into my pocket and just feels right. Gs3 is just bad ass both are just amazing.
    The technology that is being created to power our toys is going into unlimited speeds of even greater and faster phones.
    Question now would we be able to keep up with all this will you?

  • lespaul

    This ad is good!

  • ibap

    This is who I should look to for an evaluation of a phone?

    • RX-78-7

      You don’t get it.

  • LittleGreenDude

    Hah! I totally called this when it was announced for T-mobile.

  • RX-78-7

    That’s a huge name to have advertising your phone. The commercial was shown about 5-8 times during commercials. Nice move by Samsung.

    Much better than the ones making fun of the “isheep” who are potential customers(nothing attracts more customers than calling them sheep…)

    • brandnew234

      They do it in a smart, funny way. They make them feel like fools for buying an iPhone, not complete idiots.

  • yankeesusa

    Although I love the commercials making fun of iphone and people at their stores, I thin that commercials showing what a phone can do without trying to make fun of another will sell more devices. The commercial shows how great this phone is and I can’t wait to get it. Of course I had made up my mind before this but that $300 price tag is still a little hard to take in. Hopefully by the time I get best buy or rshack will have some type of deal on it.

  • Stella

    I love the way the Note II looks like the size of a Galaxy S in LeBron’s hands. I was pitching this phone to my 6’4″ brother who have huge hands.

  • osurich1

    Only LeBron could make the Note II look like an average sized phone!

  • rr2009

    Nice ad!

    Great Phablet – Most Elegant Phone ever

    Finally a product to look forward, meeting both Business & Creative needs.

    Well if you can afford anything, this is the only Phone you need to buy.

    1] 5.5 Inch (Huge) HD Super AMOLED Screen.
    2] Economical design to be handled easily (you can use this phone even with 1 hand)
    3] S Pen – and it functionalities – ( there are so many short cuts to number of functionalities, you won’t need Home, Back buttons)
    4] Smooth – Operations
    5] Whopping 2GB of RAM & 16GB inbuilt memory ( you can use 10.75 GB only out of this, but no issues).
    6] 3100 mAh Battery – it works almost 1.5 days for me with a lot of Internet usage.
    7] Great, rather I would say enhanced functionalities than SIII (in it own domain)
    8] Best for Business purpose as well as entertainment, Multifunctional usage.
    9] Great Camera Quality & functionalities.
    10] Finally, Great user experience.

    Really I didn’t find any of them.

    Overall I would say this is the best phone ever.

    Great features, great functionalities.

    Worth the Price Tag.

  • classic_hero

    his hands are huuuugggggeeeee!!!!!!

  • WaitersDeepInTheQ

    LeBron makes the Galaxy Note II look cool. LeBron is a hard guy to hate and you put his name or face on it and its going to sell smart move by Samsung. Never thought I’d see another phone takeover an Iphone so congrats to you Samsung.

  • parthpatels007

    love this phone :D

  • tylerfoy

    Only slightly larger than the S3, this device almost moves into an in-between of phone and tablet. Although a very nice device, i’m not sure it will be size-attractive to many.

  • kookeetree

    Sure it’s a phone? I think it’s a phablet. lol.

  • njcoutinho

    LeBron has big hands !!!!!!!!! Wonder which phone the hobbits would use ?

  • cuteandrew21


  • sbala
