The most part of pictures of the screen are clickable
In not so remote past, nearly some years back, Android was young, green and in respect of a usability for, we will express so, "mere mortals" rather decently lagged behind iOS. 18 months later the platform grew up but that is more important, on its base there were very unusual devices also positively influencing distribution on the world «Green robot». Often specifically they became the precondition for a choice of the candidate of iPhone: it is more screen, real electric feather with a digitayzer, a bolshushchy display resolution. Yes, it is the 1st Galaxy Note which has brought a distemper in ranks гаджетоманов and ordinary users too. The device with which I and itself tried to move to Android. Did not move, though alternative system investigated specifically, and at the same time thought that with such devices of Android now my invariable satellite level with iOS, and subsequent "robocarrier" became Galaxy Note II. How the Korean megaleader is abrupt, whether can compete with iPhone 5, whether is capable to change Galaxy Tab 7.7? Let’s try it to learn in common!
Practically as phone to the touch
Specialists Samsung carried out a severe correction of mistakes, and Google managed — about my God! — to make Android rather smooth and sympathetic. Though, matter in software and iron symbiosis as Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean onboard that effect did not create here is obvious. Yes, the device works obviously more pleasantly, than with Android 4.0 but as the operativka comes to an end, start to slip usual logs and brakes. Nevertheless 1 GB of RAM for Android and 1 GB of RAM for iOS — is absolutely various Gb. Here it is exclusive in operativka Galaxy Note II twice more and it, to put it mildly, it is felt. But before entering into a jungle of hardware abilities of the device, let’s look at things ordinarier: on design of the newcomer, on his set, we will turn the device in hands, we will feel and it is comparable with a leader of Apple.
Me often abuse for love to the description of packing of devices or accessories, say, to whom it is necessary, if at once sails away to garbage. I will not argue, but the practice I will continue, for meet on clothes and even such trifle as complete boxing it is basic. In the same iPhone 5, for example, the box became even better, and for each complete device now predvideno a separate plastic (!) bed. Moreover, earphones are delivered complete with very useful cover and their quality became very better. Yes, trifles and of them there is the general reminiscence too.
With Galaxy Note II of a miracle did not leave. Boxing is actually similar to a unique box from Galaxy Note. It shaking outside (a thick cardboard, high-quality polygraphy) and any снутри. Thin cardboard partitions and the devices piled actually in a heap.
However, color of a cable of micro-USB, now it snow-white exchanged. The charger too "turned white". In my case it is English option with strashenny 3-штырьковой a fork. I also will not get it. The benefit, the universal STORAGE Samsung, according to characteristics it same, as well as complete once bought: 5 volts, 2 amperes — perfectly charge as Galaxy Tab 7.7, and though what Galaxy Note.
Earphones did not exchange at all: intra channel, snow-white, on quality — below an average. In comparison to Apple EarPods from a set of iPhone 5 and a row did not roll. I hope, Samsung with the earphones too something will make further not the bad.
And here that for me it appeared news, so this introduction of micro-SIM заместо mini-SIM. Yes, now in «монстрофоне» that standard, as well as in iPhone 4/4S and at some other devices from Nokia or HTC. By the way, at Galaxy S III too a small SIM-card. At iPhone 5 it absolutely small, in other words nano-SIM, but plus to call it I can not in any way — all this figured cutting of plastic strains. In this case I had to "chop" the tablet SIM-card which was earlier standing in Galaxy Tab 7.7:
And here a prestigious current with refusal of the slot for memory cards Samsung did not support and it is true. Such makary, I managed to pump over own 16-gigabyte copy of 32 more GB a flash memory.
The design of the case remained a constant: the narrow plastic cover with a heap of hooks covers a storage compartment, not люфтит and voobshchy proved the solvency since Galaxy S2.
To uncover, it needs to be picked up a nail here in this place and to pull
The loudspeaker is covered with the punched iron plate — it cool. But outside the same pair of holes in plasticity which personally at all are not pleasant to me.
The loudspeaker sonorous, is not present — it very sonorous! Probably, the most sonorous in the middle of pocket portable devices which I faced. Here only he usually knows nothing about basses, well and the width of a range as a whole leaves to long for the best. Finally it that "loud" as in last leaders Samsung, only is louder. Pleasures from its listening as, for example, in iPhone 4 or in iPhone 5 (in iPhone 4S too "shouter" costs), you will not receive. But and a call at the greatest loudness you will not pass, and this main thing.
On аккуме Samsung did not save up, having squeezed real "monster" on 3100 мАч. For comparison, in iPhone 5 the battery in capacity 1440 мАч, in the first Galaxy Note — 2500 мАч is established.
I cannot tell that Galaxy Note II god of autonomy, but it obvious one of the most long-living Android-smartphones in the market. In 9,5 hours of active testing of a device it kept charge more than a half аккума. My 1st Note with the "dispersed" kastomny insertion already long since hung on a network cord, trying to recede from the full category.
In own form the beginner remembers the predecessor — that big and square. But here on design as a whole — it practically Galaxy S III which the sledge hammer fell down, finely what to eat. For that original design with a row truly fascinating features of Koreans it is possible to praise only and it is heavy to transfer all these aspects to a photo, but I will try to make it the text.
For example, all forward panel is covered with one slice of glass (while there are no data — Gorilla Glass it or something another) which on each side is a little rounded. The trifle, but does effect of integrity of a device. Similar is and at Galaxy S III.
Very much the structure of a grayish copy attracted — does effect of metal, though all case plastic. By the way, even on the back panel teksturirovanny plastic is hidden under a varnish coat (or any sheeting). It is one of few cases when luster is pertinent and is the integral and positive part of design. It becomes covered by fingerprints promptly, but grayish color and a structure mask them — it is possible to behold only under a certain corner.
Metal in Galaxy Note II hid in several places. Except a chamber and loudspeaker rim on the back panel it also covers the colloquial loudspeaker (though, it is not sure for 100 %, it can to appear also plastic), plus the central Home button too iron.
It should be noted the increased hardness of this button in comparison to Galaxy S III. On tactile feelings from pressing she remembers the Home button in iPhone 5 which became a little more rigid, than in iPhone 4/4S. Cheerfully that with the same click and force the lateral Power button is pressed also, here only for it I can not call it plus. There are casual pressing. To it would not prevent to be more tightly. But the click is better fulfilled and that is pleasant to me more, than unclear cave-in of the button in the same Galaxy Tab 7.7.
This button very comfortably takes place, just gets under big or a forefinger when the device lies in right or in the left hand respectively.
At a volume control swing with a pressing tugost everything is excellent — it specifically such properly. Click too exact, and button comfortable, though rather very narrow and small.
From hardware governing bodies it was necessary to direct attention only on two touch buttons near Home. They are actually imperceptible, do not shine yet.
At the expense of the reduced width the device is felt in hands practically as ordinary phone, instead of as недопланшет by Galaxy Note. The same some mm of width appeared very critical. To me with Galaxy Note II truly simply and comfortably to cope one hand, to shift the device in palms and to face situations when it seems that it just about will fall out, actually it is not necessary. And here we reached the subsequent, can be the most entertaining part of article — before physical and multipurpose comparison of the device to iPhone 5 and slightly with Galaxy Tab 7.7.
Everything is learned in comparison
After iPhone 5 release many called it a sausage, sausage or still somehow so for the unusual extended form. Such form very much allocates the device for my moderate look in the middle of others and personally it is pleasant to me. The more that it is realized not simply so, and because of the monitor with a ratio of the parties 16:9. In Galaxy Note II exactly the same ratio and the device in own form not smallest "sausage", than a leader of Apple. Simply at the expense of the increased dimensions this "sausage" effect is concealed a little.
For pleasant comparison added iPhone 4S below:
Still a little presentation by Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Tab 7.7 comparison:
As to thickness and weight, the 1st at the newcomer is concealed by a form of the case and even it seems that it is not especially very larger, than "thin person" of iPhone 5:
But upon a difference decent (9,4 against 7,6 mm):
Comparison to the narrowest 7-inch tablet in the market:
Concerning rather big weight of Galaxy Note II of anything disgusting I can not tell. Yes, 180 гр are felt perfectly, but for so big device it is very moderate weight. On my feelings it weighs so much, how many it is necessary, troubles with superfluous weight are not present, unless the pocket delays more than the ordinary.
By the way, in a pocket it is possible to carry such piece, but it should be huge and if you sit down, the device can rest a little against a foot and disturb. Here, naturally, implicit victory of iPhone 5. For Galaxy Note II it is better to use something like a zone holster. With jackets and jackets of difficulties will not be. Usually both pockets huge and phone anywhere does not rest against them. Again, everything is in dependence from a certain user. I usually voobshchy in a pocket of jeans or trousers carry phones occasionally. I prefer a small bag through a shoulder.
As it was mentioned above, at the expense of the reduced width of the case (83 against 80 mm) and the monitor in comparison to Galaxy Note, the beginner it became very more convenient to use one hand. Naturally, the palm should be very solid the sizes, but even to large-sized me with the first Note was frank to work more difficultly only one hand, than with Galaxy Note II. The last in this plan not especially very much differs from big modern Android-smartphones like the same Galaxy S III or HTC One X.
I simply reach a finger touch buttons and actually to though what part of the screen, without special troubles I type the text on the screen keyboard Samsung which grew up and became very comfortable. A little to shift the device in palms after all it is necessary, but situations as with the predecessor when it seems that it at present will simply fall out of a palm in the course of a rearrangement, does not appear. For it before designers Samsung I take off a cap. They truly could make of a minitablet actually real phone, which completely comfortably use one hand in the presence of enough big palms. And for small hands there are the appropriate options of the interface permitting a little to reduce basic elements of the menu and to shift them to the left or right side.
In the completion of physical comparison I suggest to look at video below in what Galaxy Note II with iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and Galaxy Tab 7.7 participate.
When Samsung was announced by Galaxy Note II, at all did not accent attention to technologies on which the device screen is executed. Probably, from desire not to do very huge конкурентнсть for Galaxy S III. On the last measure, before device emergence in retail. After all the screen at the newcomer appeared very best of all, even despite of the increased diagonal at similar permission.
The matter is that in Galaxy S III, also in the first Galaxy Note in an AMOLED-matrix the scheme of formation of pixels of PenTile is used. It is facilitated in comparison to LCD matrixes where RGB scheme is applied. In the first case each pixel, actually, consists of 2 subpiksely: dark blue-green and red-green, such pixels alternate. In the RGB scheme in each pixel on three субпикселя: turn blue, greenish and reddish. There are examples of use of the RGB scheme and in AMOLED-matrixes, for example in Galaxy S II. Here RGB and matrix PenTile so look at more than 200-fold increase:
By the way, in Galaxy S III the company worked over a form and an arrangement subpiksely that allowed to level certain minuses of PenTile. Yes, there are minuses at this technology level with such plus, as more available creation in comparison to a RGB matrix. But after all to us, consumers, it is more important multipurpose features, instead of production cost. In the middle of minuses — the density of pixels reduced approximately on the third part — the image, in particular the text, not such exact, as on RGB matrixes. In particular it is visible on a small font. Here at the expense of a form subpiksely at S III in this plan the picture is a little better, than at other devices, like Galaxy Nexus. Here its scheme, and is lower comparison to HTC One X, at which LCD matrix of SuperLCD 2 with a pixel RGB structure.
PenTile-matrix Galaxy Nexus
PenTile-matrix Galaxy S III — a difference in a structure is visible a look unaided, so to speak,
PenTile-matrix Galaxy Nexus comparison (at the left) and HTC One X RGB matrixes (on the right). Stuff-Review source
On the other hand, at big permission for phones in 1280х720 points of difficulty with clearness in principle is not present, but there are also others, like green outflow at snow-white color, also its heterogeneity — it all, it seems, in a small tochechka, quicker even grayish, instead of snow-white. Here this moment at the same Galaxy S III is perceptible perfectly, and at Galaxy Note II of that difficulty voobshchy is not present, as the real RGB matrix, though too with very unusual scheme of an arrangement of the subpiksely is used.
Galaxy Note II RGB matrix — субпиксели take place not one behind one. Reddish and greenish are perpendicular to the blue. There was some hybrid, when a structure of pixel similar to PenTile-option, but with 3 субпикселями.
The 2nd minus of PenTile — it not the best quality of the image of semitones. The result of it is expressed not only only in a rough gradient, but also in places strshny relics of the image appearing in black scenes of video, in particular, if it not of HD quality. In Galaxy Note personally this moment very much irritated me — watch film, and there are any greenish squares. At S III with similar relics the situation is better, but discrepancy too exists. At Galaxy Note II of troubles is not present. Below especially difficult scene for PenTile from the film «the Person the Wolf» on which unique Note very much gave in, filling up black parts of a scene with relics, and here at the newcomer everything is excellent:
Similar to any troubles are not present and at Galaxy Tab 7.7, the unique tablet with Super AMOLED Plus a matrix and a pixel RGB structure. But it has more diagonal at actually similar as at Galaxy Note permission (1280х800 points, it is sensitive more extensively the device, a ratio of the parties of the monitor — 16:10), and means, the least exact picture. In turn, at the newcomer at the expense of a RGB matrix approximately on the third part the density of pixels, than at Galaxy S III, despite of the increased diagonal is higher.
Moreover, Galaxy Note II is very quite good even in comparison about iPhone 5 differing more in the highest density of a matrix in 326 ppi against 267 ppi at the rival. Image sharpness comparison is lower — a photo is clickable and to teach it better in full-size option:
From left to right: Galaxy Note II, iPhone 5, Galaxy Tab 7.7
So leaves, the screen in the newcomer «смартшете» (Telefon+planshet) or "plafond" (Planshet+telefon) is not more awful, than at stately and iPhone 5 hot loved by the founder? Well, it, at least, more. As to property of the image and review corners, almost always screens are comparable if to look, in particular, at them in criteria of room lighting. But in bright solar, well and in cloudy day the screen in iPhone 5 nevertheless gives out a picture better. At it it is ordinary above brightness, approximately on the third part — if personally. And if to estimate impartially, the luminescence of snow-white Apple in phone is three times brighter, than at Galaxy Note II. In daily operation it is perceptible only by direct comparison and only on the street in quite bright day.
Ворачиваясь to the size of the screen hunting to note that is far not always more — it indispensable better. As showed personal experiences, in web surfing special distinctions of boundaries quantity of a holding content on iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note II are not present. Moreover, the 1st in this plan is pleasant to me even more. Here, naturally, business already in software and preferences: in Safari fonts and as the picture is formed, like that the line spacing a little is more more are pleasant. The Stokovy Galaxy Note II browser in this plan is more ordinary, and on the other hand — he is able to adjust the machine gun the text towards the width at a zoom. Generally, look (and click on a photo):
But after all not uniform web surfing we live. Video, of course, to look on the 5,5-inch screen, than on the 4-inch much more comfortably. To play, by the way, too. Well and Chrome for Android processes the text very well, fonts pleasant. Voobshchem, at "Robot" is a lot of any browsers and unlike iOS, where on productivity of Safari the governor and god (for uses the firm adapted cursor, which Apple to anybody any more does not give), many of them very quick, including firm Chrome. And the last besides is effective outside.
Such makary, at the expense of strong adaptation of software of iOS on 4 inches not especially loses on a usability to the 5,5-inch Android-device. The difference seriously will be felt only during viewing of video and in games. But there are at Galaxy Note some of very unusual counters using pluses of a big diagonal — about them will have a talk is sensitive later for now let’s compare chambers of devices.
Eight megapixels against eight megapixels
As Galaxy Note II fell to us into hands, at first for some reason or other it wanted to compare quality of the chamber, it is more subjects that then except iPhone 5 Galaxy S III was available also. But the result left, to put it mildly, oddish. The picture at the newcomer left dim and not so not impressing. Miracles does not happen and I assume that, or discrepancy was with ON because I updated an insertion after that dough, or the lens appeared is ordinary is polluted. I am declined to the last option.
Protective glass at the Galaxy Note II chamber залапывается is simple also to a descent very massivno. During a time council here would have, say, it is necessary for Roman to wash the dirty hands before touching expensive equipment, but I and do. Voobshchem on life the orderly person and places the pedant, I love, that everything lay on own places that everything was true, pure and аккуратненько. But one contact to the Galaxy Note II chamber and there already juicy fingerprint which one movement you will not clean, it is necessary to rub laboriously it a barkhotka. The next contact, but already to the iPhone 5 chamber — and or voobshchy any traces, or they simply leave about any myagenky fabric. Sapphire glass drives.
It seems, there was, when I carried out the 2nd test, in the most thorough way wiped protective glasses of chambers of both devices, and pictures did from an emphasis about a table to exclude an image defocusing because of trembling of hands. Not including that, photographed not in faultless criteria when light fell from a window nearby. It is so simpler to estimate quality.
So, to start steam of pictures of the small jug made by means of Galaxy Note II (on a clique originals will reveal):
Now iPhone 5 (the foreshortening a little differs because of an arrangement of chambers and various focal length of their microlenses):
Naturally, the device Samsung had all installations on the machine gun, digital stabilization of the image is disconnected, because it can мылить a picture. In iPhone 5 in principle there is nothing to adjust.
To descent there is on a look warmer picture at the decision of Apple and cool tone, also is a little lower brightness at Galaxy Note II. I will not tell that here a big difference in quality, simply remove chambers differently, and at iPhone 5 existence of post-processing which hands and not to disconnect is felt. By the way, in respect of clearness, it is a little higher at Galaxy Note II that indirectly confirms my assumption of tyazhelenny post-processing at the rival. The last can cause a certain zamylivaniye of the image.
Here still a picture for comparison. At first Galaxy Note II:
Now iPhone 5:
Choose that it is pleasant more. I give nobody preferences because chambers perfectly remove in both cases and the difference is visible only by direct comparison and it is a difference not in quality, and in color and processing of pictures. At «монстрофона» they it seems as are more close to the truth, and at iPhone 5 — more saturated colors. But at desire all this simply is governed and changes in any editor.
In what Galaxy Note II really surpasses iPhone 5, so it in rate of fire of serial shooting. It removes as a real machine gun and in respect of property with pictures everything is more or less normal, as for similar function. It is more ideal to show all this in video:
Results of high-speed shooting in archives to whom it is curious: Galaxy Note II and iPhone 5.
Quality of record of video in 1080p I suggest to estimate by examples below. At first Galaxy Note II with active function of digital stabilization of the image:
And here without stabilization:
Now the turn of iPhone 5 came, in it digital stabilization of the image is used on дефлоту and to disconnect it it is impossible:
There is a difference in a color rendition drawings, it approximately the same, as at work with a photo — at Galaxy Note II is sensitive more cold, at iPhone 5 — is brighter and warmer. At all this big phone a little is focused more quickly, and record level from a microphone is higher, in other words finally the sound is louder. In general, as video cameras both devices approximately monotonous and both are quite good.
Massive iron on «zheleyny beans»
It is time to have a talk about electric interiors of Galaxy Note II, the benefit here is what to discuss. Well and in the program plan the device, frankly speaking, amazed me.
Specialists did not begin to compose Samsung is great and arrived in the same way as they did in a past at release of the first Galaxy Note. The interior from flagman phone is taken, in this case it is Galaxy S III, and is sensitive frequency of the microprocessor is increased. Such makary Galaxy Note II received firm SoC Exynos 4412 with 4 computing kernels, frequency of 1,6 GHz (1,4 GHz in Galaxy S III) and though not the newest, but quite massive GPU Mali-400 MP. The volume of an operativka making 2 GB is more important. At certain regional S III models too as much, but the world option contains only 1 GB. A flash memory from 16 to 64 GB, plus I will corrode for the microSD cards.
On "iron" everything is excellent. Moreover, Samsung let out the device with the new OS Android version that was not at the time of start-up of unusual Galaxy Note. It is sure, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean too gave to the newcomer much. For example, indescribably smooth operation of the interface, that Project Butter.
For this purpose completely to feel all unprecedented power and I am abrupt the megasmartphone decided not to be limited to an obvious kovyryaniye in stokovy software, and to transfer all the program place with Galaxy Tab 7.7. The "naked" system always will perfectly work, how she herself will move under oppression of the stranger ON the user?
And here time came to remember rivalry between iOS and Android in respect of a basic usability. As we move from the device to the device in iOS: we do a spare copy in iTunes or in iCloud, but the 1st is more quick, then we connect a new device, whether it be iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, we choose point «To restore from a spare copy», we click «With Oka, everything agree» and we go to drink coffee, to have a rest, work, generally — to be engaged in the affairs. After process will be complete, the new device will receive a full copy ON, including options of appendices, placement of labels and folders, books, music, video and other digital property. Indescribably comfortably, I go bananas from this ability every time as it is necessary to perform such operation.
In a case with Android we are expected in somebody a sort by a hardcore, on the last measure, in comparison with described is slightly higher the scheme. There is such beautiful utility in Play Google, Titanium Backup is called, here she allows to make a copy ON the user, but under condition of existence of the Root-rights. In other words, wish an exact copy — be so kind as, crack a device. Own system of reservation Google backward and not the multipurpose. Remembers the list of appendices, options for certain of them, but less. I do not remember the Spartan Titanium Backup interface what at first it is necessary to understand. But the man I or is not present? Will suffice to ache, let’s work!
Updated an insertion by air, in this plan everything is excellent and comfortable, works as well as into iOS, only Google entered such possibility before the rival. Now it is necessary to make a copy by means of Titanium Backup, on a tablet I, of course, have a Root-access:
In settings for earlier chose, that the spare copy remained on a memory card, after it I will simply rearrange in Galaxy Note II. Here only discrepancy that too it is necessary to crack the newcomer, on another not to return the appendix. It was necessary to find the decision.
With a view of economy of time addressed for the help to the bolshenny fan and the adherent of Android, Sascha Zhuravlyov ака @Alex_Shvarz. By the way, it is one of examples when the person left with iOS on Android, and its candidate not only only pleased and struck with the abilities. Rather promptly received from it the answer and the summary with all necessary files. Though played "neterplyachka" prevailed and before I found the decision itself on Team Android, it and used — works, but if decide to use it, do everything on own horror and risk. Plus it is calculated on a stokovy insertion of XXALJ1. As a result I received the CWM loader of the 6th version (those who in a subject, усвоют), and on a desktop such here the program with an icon of a flying boat:
But not the fact that full access to file system is received. Check is necessary to avoid troubles further (because of such troubles I in a past spoiled a spare copy ON, it was necessary to restore everything manually). Checked by means of a free aaplet of Root Checker, a result positive:
Well here, it is possible to transfer the appendices and their options from a tablet:
Only to exult early because options of a desktop, labels and other pieces do not remain. It should be restored hands. On all it was necessary to expend a two-three of hours — that everything under itself to make, and from a chitalka of Cool Reader and absolutely hands to transfer options, "Titan" does not pick up them, and I wound with display schemes there much. In comparison to iOS — it not the most positive example. I hope, further Google will invent something.
In any case, transfer personal ON negatively did not influence productivity. As a result there was here machine such bright and adjusted under my requirements:
What here to tell? Phone flies, simply flies. I already tested Jelly Bean for Galaxy Nexus — abruptly, but is not perfect. Not enough RAM, well and interior not the most bright. Tried this OS on Nexus 7, but it is absolutely short. Now tested it completely on the best Android-gadget. Well, about brakes it is possible to forget. On productivity the device is comparable with iPhone 5 under control of iOS 6. Everything flies, thus povsevremenno, instead of any time after memory cleaning. Actually, to hammer to me RAM it was not possible, 2 GB — it that the doctor for Android registered. And still the feeling was gone in Fruit Ninja that the touch screen works a delay. This log irritated in all devices which have visited my hands on the basis of Android. In Galaxy Note II of that difficulty is not present, though I assume that refreshed OS here served its purpose.
On productivity of Android truly overtook for iOS though in respect of convenience of operation to it is where to develop still. Plus should be held in the head that there is a speech about the best device. For example, on last year’s iPhone 4S the iOS operating system flies, well and on before last year’s iPhone 4 too behaves very adequately. Jelly Bean in principle is excellent and at devices of last generations works that proves Galaxy Nexus, but far not all products will receive such program updating.
Nevertheless, not only only hardware power and the highest productivity ON live Galaxy Note II. There are at it and a little others very fascinating and places of unique features.
Electric feathers and windows in Android
Unique Galaxy Note enticed in due time люд not only only bolshushchy screen and the integrated digitayzer of Wacom together with an electric feather. The unique sheaf of many people inspired to test to find in itself possibilities to drawing, the founder too tried. And masters and voobshchy very promptly mastered an exotic wonder:
But, поправде, there were features and is far not always the pleasant. Pressing degree was defined — it perfectly, however, was necessary to put a feather under a certain corner, plus to press with significant effort. ON not always was in time behind stylus movement, the line lagged behind its tip. Not always precisely it was possible to define, and where the line — for hand-written notes of mm there specifically will begin or here is not critical, and here for drawing it essentially. The feather caused questions too, in particular its button which was simply unreal to grope blindly. In Galaxy Note II from children’s diseases did not remain also a trace.
The stylus became sensitive more largely, more conveniently, and the ridge multipurpose button is simply groped in all criteria on a flat side of a feather. Its tip is not aggressively fixed, it can be sensitive is drowned. Perhaps, because of it the quantity of defined levels of pressure with 256 in the first Note to 1024 is increased. Actually as in vsepolnotsenny graphic tablets.
Finally the easy contact is defined even, to write — one pleasure! At ability отрисовывать, that electric notebook the voobshchy is irreplaceable for prompt sketches and transfer thoughts from the head in a sketch. Program abilities are improved also. For example, having clamped on a stylus the button, it is possible to cut out though what object on the display and to send it by mail, or it is simple to copy in a clipboard for use in work. About sensitivity of a digitayzer and cutting of objects I shot small video:
In the middle of other perceptible features the specialist of a desktop directed attention to emergence at stylus extraction. On it supporting SPen of an aaplet and some samples of interactive notes take place. Similar pages also are for a mode of roaming, work with a firm docking station and earphones.
Function of division of the screen on two parts when in each of them separate applications, whether it be the browser in one and the client of Facebook in other, or YouTube, by GMail, GTalk, the Google Cards and ten more programs are started is more fascinating. To chagrin, the list while is limited and any appendices will not force to work in such mode. But thought very excellent and necessary for the device with so big screen.
In that piece as appearing over the screen window with reproduced video not to amaze any more. For the first time it was shown in Galaxy S III. But in Galaxy Note II it is a window it is possible to change in the sizes two-manual gesture. Besides appeared and the emerging browser when on a clique on the reference you pass not to the polnoekranny appendix, like the stokovy web browser or Chrome, and the page reveals in a small window atop, for example, post or the Twitter client (precisely works in Plume).
Again we will return to a stylus and feature when its situation is defined at distance about 2 cm over the screen. This function opens mass of the necessary abilities, like viewing of frames of video in a player, simply conducting a feather over the toddler of rewind. Beheld a suitable shot — a click, and look video from this place.
If to establish Adobe Flash (officially Jelly Bean does not support it, but methods are), in the stokovy SPen browser will play a role of the cursor of a mouse on "fleshevy" websites. Guided a stylus at an interactive element, and it reacted, as would make it when prompting the cursor of a mouse. Not including that, in the standard web browser and in Plume it is possible to scroll page, having simply brought a stylus to edge of the screen. It is better to behold, of course, all this in operation the eyes. So I offer respective video:
And still the status light-emitting diode indicator moved to Galaxy Note of II of its prototype in the person of Galaxy S III. It would seem, all refused it, not stylishly already, and after all very comfortable piece. He speaks about charging process, about connection to the personal computer, about basic events. Took the device with itself in a booming gym in what that is difficult not that a sound of the come message to hear and a telephone call too. Time saw a blinking light-emitting diode, means, passed something basic, it is possible to take the device in hands and to have a look, instead of to do it every time, being afraid not to see the expected message.
As a result of in the middle features I will allocate an oleofobny covering of the screen, though on the back panel it is too. The structure obviously differs from such in iPhone. At Samsung it more slippery also is easier cleared of fingerprints. The truth it is necessary аккуратненько to use a device that did not slip out a case hands.
«Is longer and is thicker»
Well, friends, now at me became longer and is thicker! Phone became and, and you over what thought? And if it is serious, a real Android-leader Samsung — it is concrete Galaxy Note II, instead of Galaxy S III. A unique mix of phone, a tablet and the real graphic tablet — dream гика, the assistant to the artist, the tool for the creative producer or simply entertaining device which besides calls.
In comparison to the predecessor in it all is improved («in this device we improved completely everything» — remembers nothing?). It concerns a form of the case, design, an interior, the battery, the monitor, a digitayzer, a stylus and even the chamber which, actually, is a copy such in Galaxy S III, and at it already the photomodule was better, than at unusual Note.
And what after all a greenish boat, what after all Android which is giving up in a past as a bad job beautiful devices because of own defects, the braking interface and reigning on disorders of far-fetched freedom of the proletariat? Eventually he grew from small panties and grew up. If earlier at communication with leaders Samsung I had a desire to push in these magnificent devices of iOS, from that Galaxy Note II was not. Yes, there are aspects, is where to a platform still to develop, but already at present on quality and speed of work it simply competes c iOS.
In turn by means of weight of own program development Samsung showed a probable way of the forthcoming development of Android: the two-window interface with support of all postoroniy appendices, the emerging windows, dynamically created desktops it is dependent on the current requirements — all this while in an embryo, but already abruptly.
Forgive to iPhone 5 and hi Galaxy Note II? No, friends — it not a way I rub гаджетомана, гика and техноманьяка. I always said and I continue to say that better iPhone can be only new iPhone, but it is only personal outlook. New iPhone truly appeared better than the predecessor. Moreover, as practice showed, at own small in comparison to Galaxy Note II of a diagonal of the monitor it is not more awful совладевает with the majority of tasks where this parameter is critical. The same web surfing, work with mail, a Twitter. I will not remember obvious calls which to make by means of more small-sized iPhone to the majority of users more convenient. After all not all have same rather big palms, as at the founder.
But the most important — is an ecosystem, everyone gets used to own. I have an ecosystem of production of Apple: iPad, iPhone, MacBook — everything is synchronized, everything is a whole, uniform working stock.
There is in this ecosystem a place and for Galaxy Note II, as for independent working and entertaining unit. Well and at first articles I said that long since to myself thought the ordinary truth — it is not necessary to find minuses of one platforms and to eulogize in own eyes others, after all it is possible to use several candidates at once. Apple ruined the built-in navigation, well and it is good, I will use the real Google cards on Android. "Robot" suffers from absence of worthy appendices for maintaining the personal budget, ok, on iOS of such 100500 pieces. In a pocket of very narrow jeans not to squeeze «лопатофон»? Yes without troubles, iPhone 5 solves!
Friends, life is very short to spend it for hostility and a rage, on support of by all means "true" religion (read, platforms), on silly disputes and confirmations of own correctness in situations when on this correctness it is simple to interlocutors to spit, after all at everyone the truth.
Direct comparison of iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note II is unreal. On совокупы the devil is the best devices in own class and at all this they very various. A choice for you, I own made.
