The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone comes with a 5.,5-inch display, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system running out of the box, an 8-megapixel rear-facing snapper, 2 GB of RAM and is underpinned by a Exynos 4412 Quad system chip.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 isn’t without its conspiracy theories from people claiming that it was set with an expiry date due to people seemingly coming up with a bunch of problems around the same time. They argue that it doesn’t work anymore from various problem to do with no connectivity and black screen. While the conspiracy theories are likely untrue, it’s worth noting that these didn’t hold up that well over time if the comments from people online were anything to is believed.

That’s your warning for anyone thinking about buying this second hand cheaply online, or even brand new now that it has been out for many years. Make no mistake, though; the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone did more than enough to see its return for a third year with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.
