When consumers were able to see the last T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2, it was back at the CTIA MobileCON in San Diego, with a release date said to be in the fall at some time. After that, there have been a plentiful amount of hints, rumors and leaks about when the the handset would truly release and/or be available for pre-order. Thankfully all of the speculation is gone, and the time for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 to release is right now. That is right folks, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 is available for purchase on T-Mobile’s website right now.
The device is a behemoth. Touting a 5.5 inch 720p display, 1.6GHz quad core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and actually a pretty good camera compared to its predecessor, the Note 2 offers a variety of features for personalities and users all across the board. Combine all of that with their S Pen and the Wacom screen digitizer, the Galaxy Note 2 is what you should be calling the ultimate mobile device, especially after benchmarks seen on the device. It has truly taken the crown as the best Android phone to date in terms of hardware. Of course, that crown does not usually last long as there is always another better device in the works. Those that are wanting a tablet-like experience while having the capabilities of your average smartphone, you can get all of these features wrapped up in one package for a mere $369.99 on a two-year contract with T-Mobile. If you don’t want to experience another dreaded two-year contract though, the device will be priced at $649.99.
All of that said, fans in the U.S should be rejoicing after what felt like such a long wait. If you’re looking to save a bit of money though, and want to get out of T-Mobile’s grasp, AT&T will be pricing the Galaxy Note 2 at a much lower $299 with the agreement to a two-year contract. As far as we know, there are no plans for that price to increase at all, there is also no reason that it should increase either. So, if you’re looking to get the device a bit cheaper, you should look around the other carriers that will be receiving the device (e.g. Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, MetroPCS).
One thing that is important to note is that the Galaxy Note 2 does have 4G LTE capabilities. It was up in the air for a while as to whether it would have that type of connectivity, and it does. As you know, 4G LTE is quite the power hog, but that is no matter for the Galaxy Note 2. We’ve been hearing reports that with HSPA+ on the device, it has been lasting people a good day and a half to two days of constant battery life. Of course, that is on the basis that you aren’t constantly using Facebook, Twitter or any heavy applications. To be specific, the Galaxy Note 2 is boasting of a 3100mAh battery, which is really good.
