On paper, Samsung’s new Note II promises to be the perfect combo of excellent internal guts and buttery smooth software. We loved the first iteration, and thoroughly enjoyed our brief hands-on with the device in August. After spending a few hours running the handset through its paces, it’s immediately apparent just how incredible of an upgrade the device is over the first. This is by no means a review, but merely a quick first impressions — we’re that excited to tell you about the Note II. Check out the video and stay tuned for more Galaxy Note II coverage to come.
