Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Unboxing and Hands On

The Galaxy Note II is an immensely imposing figure, both in specs and in size. Samsung has improved the device in every conceivable way over last year’s monster handset, giving it a stature that overshadows everything out there. Yes, even the iPhone 5 — though there are plenty of arguments to be made about the specs vs. experience debate, and Apple’s newest iPhone hasn’t exactly done bad for itself since launching.

But the Note II is an entirely different beast, and Samsung isn’t scared to attack Apple head on. Godzilla screens are in, and Samsung has come up with a number of ways to take advantage of that real estate. We’ve been anticipating the 5.5-inch device ever since the first rumor hit, and we’re extremely excited to have it in the TechnoBuffalo offices. Will it live up to the humungo hype? We can hardly wait to find out.
