It’s not only the Samsung Galaxy S3 of Sprint that can be purchased at a much lower price than usual on Amazon Wireless. The retail giant also has other Samsung devices selling at ridiculously low prices this holiday season, including the Korean company’s latest high-end device, the Galaxy Note 2 phablet.
The Sprint Galaxy Note 2 can be purchased for only $149.99 on a two-year carrier contract on Amazon Wireless, which makes it $50 cheaper than the Galaxy S3’s regular contract price and a good one half of the $299 Galaxy Note 2 contract price for Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and US Cellular subscribers.
Like the Sprint Galaxy S3, the catch for taking advantage of the lowered price would be less 4G LTE markets on the carrier’s network, but considering the high-end specs and useful features on the Galaxy Note 2, $149.99 is a sweet deal no matter how you look at it.
The bread-and-butter specifications of the Galaxy Note 2 include a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, a quad-core Exynos processor with 2 GB RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera and 3,100 mAh battery. However, the Note 2’s appeal lies far beyond a jumbo-sized screen and quad-core power. The S Pen is back on the Note 2, and can be used in a number of creative and practical ways.
The Galaxy Note 2 is also one of the few devices that come with Multi-Window View, a neat multitasking feature that lets users open two applications at once on the same screen.
