Comparing the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – Singapore

The Galaxy Note 2 Phone (not tablet) is gong to be released on Oct 23 by all three Telcos in Singapore (Singtel / Starhub / M1). The Galaxy Note 2 brings some much anticipated upgrades to the phone and similar styling to the Samsung SGS3. Jump here for links to the pre-order pages. Still considering whether the Note 2 is right for you? Here’s a quick comparison on what specs the new Note 2 offers.

Specs Galaxy Note 2 Galaxy Note 1 Comments
Size 151.1 x 80.5 x 9.4mm 146.9 x 83 x 9.7 mm Slimmer and longer. Aspect ratio changed. It would be easier to hold
RAM 2G 1G
Size 180g 178g Just 2g difference.
Battery 3150mA 2500mA 24% increase in battery capacity.
CPU 1.6Ghz Quad A9 1.4Ghz Dual A9
NFC Yes No Payment on the go
Screen 5.55″, 1280×720 5.3″, 1280×800 Hmm, bigger screen but lower screen density
Glass Gorilla Glass 2 Gorilla Glass 1
Notif Light Yes No

The Note 2 is a worthy upgrade to Note 1. if you watch videos during long train or bus rides regularly, video playing will see a big improvement. Pretty much all TV shows and movies are encoded in 16:9 resolution today. The note 2 seems worse off in the pixel density but Samsung is actually using a new technology for the screen as compared to Note 1 which improves the pixel arrangement so on viewing, the quality of the screen would be much better. The change to the 16:9 aspect ratio would also make it more pocket friendly too.

Looks like it is going to be another hot seller when Singtel / Starhub / M1 announces the launch release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
