Te Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a lot more durable than the Samsung Galaxy S3. This claim came after putting the Galaxy Note 2 through a series of torturous drop tests that are definitely not for the faint of heart.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 beats S3 in drop test
AndroidAuthority made the first drop test for the Galaxy Note 2, testing the international version of the handset. The test was over three different but very realistic heights. The device was first dropped from a height of about 2 feet and 6 inches, which puts it near the pocket region, the second chest height at around 4 feet and finally five feet, which would be around the region of holding the device up to the ear.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 did survive all three drops; however the bezel did suffer some damage as it seems to be softer than the back and also the screen of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is coming to the market next month and AT&T will be the first to have the device, with the other major carriers following. The handset will have support for LTE in the US and it comes with 2GB of RAM, it runs on Jelly Bean and has a display of 5.5 inches which is Super AMOLED. It also has an 8 megapixel HD camera on the front and it comes with a redesigned S Pen and the TouchWiz interface of Samsung.
Samsung predict that it will sell more than 20 million units before the year is out, saying that sales should grow two fold when compared to the original Note. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be competing alongside the Nokia Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5 from Apple, which has a 4 inch retina screen.
