It is big but so lovable. Meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is available at Amazon for £341.99 and from DigitalRev for £359 (with 4G connectivity). We'd probably prefer the latter because of its long-term future proof-ness as 4G networks become more prevalent in the UK.
The Galaxy Note 2 was unveiled at IFA in Germany and was until the release of the Galaxy S4, the flagship handset for Samsung. It comes with a 5.5in Super AMOLED HD display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, a quad-core SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a stylus called the S Pen and a number of Samsung-only features like Air View, Popup Note, Quick Command, Easy Clip, Photo Note, AllShare Play and S Beam.
Samsung has judiciously chosen to use the inbuilt capabilities of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to implement some of the above. Other notable features include a 3,100mAh battery, a rear 8-megapixel camera and a microSD card reader. Note that the N7105 (which is LTE) has no FM radio and the N7100 (3G only) has one.
