And if you’re a budding photographer, the Note 2 LTE is equipped with an advanced 13 Mega pixel rear camera and an optimized 3P lens 2 Mega pixel front camera f/2.0 aperture and the rear camera features a Samsung S5K3M2 ISOCELL CMOS sensor and 5P lens with an f/2.0 sensor aperture offering a 78 degree shooting angle (better get your Facebook page ready!).
If there is one thing that smart phones need to be, it’s smart and this phone is just that. Double tap the screen to lock and unlock your phone, design a “C” to access camera and an “M” to access your music. Now isn’t that fun? Note 2 LTE is equipped with smart gestures which allow you to control the display by designing letters for a quick access to your phone’s functions.
If you’re one of those people who are addicted to their phones (like me) then you’re probably usually found in some corner with your phone plugged into a charger somewhere but those days are about to change because Note 2 LTE is built with a 4040 mAh Li-polymer battery with a charge which lasts up to 2 days. The 4040 mAh power lets you accomplish 80% more tasks on your phone, boosting productivity and has a talk time of up to 30 hours, video viewing time of about 12 hours, can play music for 45 hours and, surf the internet for up to 10 hours! WOAH!
If you’re thinking that a larger battery means that it would take forever to charge then you’re wrong. Note 2 LTE, is built with fast charge technology, which gives 15 min fast charge for 8 hours with a 4.5A current.
Powered by a MT6753 Mediatek chipset, Note 2 LTE’s electronic component is based on ARM® Cortex®-A53 64-bit octa-core processor 1.3 GHz. The MT6753 support high performance wireless networks including 4G LTE.
