Comparing to a Tablet Device, Samsung Galaxy Note - II have everything identical, specially a 5.5 inches of large display screen.

A smartphone this broad and tall falls more naturally into two-handed operation actually. There is no denying this is a large device, even by modern mobile standards. It's around 151mm high and 81m wide, and 9.9mm thick. Weighted including a cover flap that wraps around the front, it was 214g, which is not insubstantial.
According to physical functionality, it seems very comfortable to operate with two hands, one to hold and one to tap. Samsung offers an option within Android's Settings titled 'One handed operation', which places the onscreen keyboard, Dial-pad and Calculator to one side. But as still its Dial-up icons are unreachable to single hand thumb, you should dial it with two hands.

Structure and Key Feature

The build is plastic, but good, feeling weighty and all of a piece in the hand. The screen quality is excellent, and it doesn't reveal the same over ripe coloring of other Samsung Super AMOLED displays.


Picture quality from the rear 8Mp camera is not bad, high contrast areas show purple fringing, although the camera is fast in operation. Recorded HD video is usable, but its suffers from focus hunting issues even in good light. Shot footage looked smeary on even slow pans.

 Interior Specifications

by PC Advisor Magazine
The Note II's innards are very similar to those of the Galaxy S III. Inside is a Samsung Exynos 4412 SoC based on a quad-core ARM, but clocked at 1.6- rather than 1.4GHz. This is the fastest clocked ARM smartphone we've seen and, combined with Android's latest 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, it bodes well for performance.
Jelly Bean promises smoother graphics, here powered by an ARM Mali-400 MP GPU. It's relatively speedy, and faster than the nVidia Tegra 3, if wel short of the fastest available mobile graphics solutions.
In our performance tests, the Note II approached the capability of the iPhone 4S. It managed 17fps in the Egypt HD test, against 19fps for the previous generation Apple phone. The iPhone 5 played the same benchmark at 38fps. Other test results like Gauge Processor speed test and SunSpider JavaScript test also was better then iPhone 5, which is remarkable.
Battery Life is also not bad, as PC Advisor Magazine says "We found battery life good enough to last two days of sporadic use, in park thanks to a large 11.78Wh removable battery packed inside".

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
