galaxynote2createWith a price tag more than $100 less than the same handset offered by some competing wireless carriers, the Sprint Galaxy Note II 4G Android smartphone/tablet enters the new year. Sprint created their first ever 4G LTE system at the end of last year, and that speedy network is the home to the Galaxy Note II. The first handset manufactured by Samsung to deliver Android’s 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out-of-the-box, the Galaxy Note II also delivers the largest smartphone display.

The handset is Samsung Approved For Enterprise, a designation which proclaims the Galaxy Note II safe for sensitive information, because of the additional security features and data encryption technology that it carries. The improved Google Now and a faster, smoother user interface are hallmarks of the Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system, and that upgraded OS is accessed by the Samsung TouchWiz UI. The handset hit the Sprint system on October 25 of last year, and the quad core processor allows you to jot down directions with the smart stylus S Pen, surf the web or watch videos and movies without interrupting a voice call.

Offered in your choice of marble white or titanium gray, the Sprint Galaxy Note II was recently spotted in the Amazon Wireless store online at a retail price of around $139 on contract. Despite its massive display, the Galaxy Note II is thin, measuring only 0.37 inches (9.3 mm) in thickness. The 5.55 inch capacitive touchscreen mentioned earlier is protected by a layer of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2, and is set up in a “true HD” 16 to 9 aspect ratio. That Super AMOLED display delivers 265 pixels per every inch of screen, for an overall resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels.

Talk time on the Galaxy Note II is excellent at 15.0 hours offered from a single battery charge, and battery standby power runs 12.0 days. Samsung has included their Exynos 4 (4412) microchip package to power the handset, built around a quad core 1.6 GHz central processor. A quad core ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphics processor is also on board, as is a full 2.0 GB of RAM memory, 16 GB of built-in storage, and a microSD slot for storage expansion.

The Sprint Galaxy Note II multimedia package contains a Stereo FM radio with RDS, built-in music player and YouTube video player, and popular applications Facebook, Picasa and Twitter have been pre-installed. Built into the back of the handset is an 8.0 megapixel camcorder capable of 1,080P HD resolution video capture, with video calls supported by the front facing 1.9 megapixel chat cam.

  1. Yes but they are still charging $249 for an upgrade renewal. It just shows how Sprint does not care about their current customers who have paid their bills for years but instead cater to new customers who at least 50% of the time are scamming them.
