Turns out people like Samsung’s plus-sized Galaxy Note II. In fact, looks like 3 million people love the phablet. That’s a pretty impressive number, but it becomes even more impressive when you consider that the device has only been on the market for a little over a month. That’s a lot of people running out to get their Note IIs in a rather short period of time.
The extra-large phone has a 5.5-inch screen. Samsung has taken some steps to make the phone appear a little smaller, which could help explain why this is the particular phablet that is taking the world by storm. They included a smaller top and bottom bezel, which helps trim a little size. Samsung also included rounded edges, which helps make the phone look less massive than it actually is.
The inclusion of the longer, thinner S Pen could be another reason for the jump in popularity of the Note II. It makes using the lager device much easier. While the S Pen is compatible with the original Note, the different size of the pen means it won’t fit in the stylus slot of the Samsung’s original phablet.
Maybe the size of the screen has nothing to do with the phone’s massive success. Maybe it’s the beastly specs under the hood of the device. Maybe it’s the 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and either 16, 32, or 64GB of memory space options that make people want it. Either way, Samsung’s Galaxy Note II is here to stay. 3 million units is an impressive number, and it tells us that there is certainly a market for larger smartphones.[via SlashGear]
