Samsung unveiled the successor of its monster smartphone cum tablet Galaxy Note, the Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 smartphone in Berlin few days ago. First version of Note got mixed reviews due to its large size as a smartphone, some people feels that it is annoying to hold the Galaxy Note with one hand while you talk with someone during a call, because you can’t grip the phone comfortably and half portion of your face is also covered by phone while calling.
