The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been fittingly dubbed the “phablet,” because it fuses the best of both worlds. The full-featured smartphone packs powerful tablet capabilities, which is probably why it is such a hit with consumers. Here are some amazing things you can do with the new smartphone.
1. Jot down a quick note on-screen
Isn’t it annoying when you’re in the middle of a phone call and you need to write down an address or a phone number and you can’t find a pen and paper? The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a Popup Note feature, which ensures that you will never have to scramble for a piece of paper again. All you need to do is press the S Pen button and double-tap the screen to start hand-writing a quick note with your stylus.
2. Send creative and personal emails
While the S Pen is a standout feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, it is the smartphone’s built-in handwriting support which really succeeds in taking the stylus to the next level. Now you can include personal, hand-written notes and sketches in your e-mails to friends and family. Another cool feature is Easy Clip. Let’s say that you stumbled upon a picture of a new car or found a great quote while browsing the internet on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Easy Clip lets you crop out the photo or text with your S Pen and share instantly with your contacts.
3. Enjoy super smart camera and video
The superb camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 offers a Best Face feature that helps you capture perfect group shots every time. Group photos are tricky because you always end up with one person with their eyes closed or looking in the wrong direction. The Best Face mode takes a series of quick, multiple shots and lets you select your favorite pose or expression for each person in the picture to use in composing a final group photo.
Take advantage of the Photo Note feature to handwrite personal thoughts or musings at the back of your mobile pictures using your S Pen. Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 offers the ability to record slow motion or fast motion video clips so you can have fun with the videos you shoot.
4. Preview quickly with Air View
Air View is a convenient, time-saving feature which lets you preview photos, videos, e-mails, calendar events and more simply by hovering your S Pen over those items. You no longer have to scroll through multiple photos and navigate multiple screens or open several folders to find what you’re looking for.
5. Share easily with S Beam
As the term suggests, you can literally beam files from your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to another compatible phone that also uses S Beam technology. Simply place the phones back to back to transfer your digital photos, videos and documents.
