galaxy note 2 marble white titanium grey [aa]

One of the complaints that people had about the original Galaxy Note was its somehow awkward design. For the Note 2, which is now out for sale in select markets in Asia and Europe, Samsung worked to fix that shortcoming, while improving on what made the Note a hit – the immense screen and the nifty stylus.

So, how did Samsung do with the Note 2? To answer, we bought a bunch of them from Hong Kong. We are giving one away (congrats to our giveaway winner!) and we drop tested another to see how it hold its own against some hard tarmac. We also have a full review in the making, so stay tuned.

Of course, we also captured that special moment that we all love so much – unboxing a brand new gadget. So, without further ado, here’s the Galaxy Note 2 unboxing and some quick impressions from our Darcy LaCouvee.

And here are some images of the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, clad in Marble White and Titanium Grey. Which one you like best?

    Bodgan, one thing I couldn’t figure out yet is how to make a screen capture on the Note 2…the hand swipe procedure from the first generation Note is not working.
