Galaxy Note 2 Sells 5 Million Units in 2 Months

Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Note 2 phablet has sold over five million units since its launch two months ago.

The Korean technology firm said in a statement that the smartphone/tablet hybrid achieved the milestone a month after the company sold three million units of the device during the first 30 days after its launch.

The device, which boasts a 5.5-inch screen, is selling approximately three times faster than its predecessor. The original Galaxy Note reached three million sales after three months. Due to a partnership with 260 carriers around the globe, Samsung said the Galaxy Note 2 could eventually sell as many as 20 million units, which would represent around 10 more million units than its predecessor.

One device that has reached the aforementioned milestone is the Galaxy S3. It sold 20 million units during its first 100 days of availability, and recently exceeded 30 million units sold.

    I love my GN 1. Waiting for GN 3 to upgrade. But if you havent got a GN yet, you are seriously missing out. And no I have never used or needed to use the stylus.

    That phone is a little too big I think. It's funny how at first the phones were big and everyone wanted smaller ones. Now they want a phone the size of an e-reader. I just don't get it. Also, didn't people hate the pen idea back with CE devices? So why is it cool now?

    I bought mine at launch and Sprint just had them available at a local store. They didn't have a demo model out on display yet for me to play around with. The first 5 minutes playing with the unboxed "demo" I was sold. Even though I paid $299 after my upgrade discount it was well worth it.

    After using it for a month now it's best phone / mini-tab on the market. It's fast, smooth and easy to use applications. Battery life last me almost two days. Alot better than the Epic 4G which barely lasted half a day of moderate use.

    Samsung got it right with this model.

    Yes the GN II do have a stylus pen (s-pen as Samsung called it) but you don't have to use it. The screen is sensitive enough to do what you need without it. It's nice that I can store the pen inside the phone.

    After I get more familiar with it's feature I may try to use the pen more often.

    Said it from the start this phone would take off, It will be an enormous success(pun intended).
    Just waiting for the courier to bring my LTE version, Can't wait to replace ths old iphone 3GS.
    Sorry Apple but this phablet destroys all your present offerings by a mile!
    Why the switch for me? Simple,
    Micro Sd Card
    NFC(Quite handy if your mate is also a photographer,swap photos)
    Changeable covers(inlcuding metal ones) enough with the plastic argument fanboys,Plastic better for NFC signal anyway!
    Bigger screen
    Stylus( More fun than you think ) especially for stuffing around drawing/doodling

    Now comparing to iphone 5 what does it offer me? A better looking metal case thats about it, Ummm sorry Apple I buy a "smartphone"for functionality.
    Maybe you will have my dollars in iphone 6 or 7 but until then you need to pull your finger out as the competition is not playing catch up anymore, It has overtaken you!

    I have had one for about a month and it is literally one of the best Electronic devices I'VE EVER OWNED.

    FAST...Very Fast!! Quad core Exynos CPU @1.6Ghz. My Galaxy S II was Fast with the Dual core version @1.2ghz. That and an overclocked Mali-400 GPU with 2Gb of shared Ram... Yes Please!
    I pair mine with a class 10 Sandisk 64Gb Micro-SD card.

    Beautiful, Gorgeous 5.55 Super AMOLED+ HD (non-pentile; ie, each pixel gets it's own set of sub pixels; red, green and blue) Display for Web, Pictures, Anything, is Phenomenal.

    S-Pen adds a Lot of unique functionality to the device. It's almost like having a mouse at times; which can be very useful.

    HUGE Battery!! This thing gets used more than any device I've ever owned; I love it. I keep the brightness UP and use it at full blast ALL DAY (I'm talking about 7:30am until about 1am or later if I go out; and it's comes thru like a champion with juice to spare.

    That's just a few of the things I love about it. More would be the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 OS and the TochWiz is light (not that This device would care), looks good and is actually useful. The default- keyboard does Swype, voice recognition and "normal" input with aplomb and it's BASICALLY JUST A REALLY CLOSE TO PERFECT DEVICE; For me anyway.

    Etc. etc. etc. etc. etc... just buy it
    FYI, I like the GN4 and the Optimus G and the Droid DNA too, but not expandable mem...?? wtf?? Plus not s-pen if I want it; which I do..

    Phones back in the day weren't smart phones. Smart phones have much wider usage nowadays than the old school phones did and it makes sense for them to be decently sized. Older phones really just needed to be large enough to fit across the face from microphone to mouth to speaker to ear.
