Is it a phone, a tablet ... or a phablet? Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 is all three and, with its 5.3-inch display and S Pen stylus, blurs the line between phone and tablet.
But to avoid any confusion that arose from the old Note, Samsung has finally caved in to popular demand and is calling the Note 2 a smartphone.
So the Galaxy Note 2 may be bigger than a normal smartphone - maybe a tad too big for some. But function-wise, it opens up a new landscape for denizens of the mobile phone world.
The new Note runs on a 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, 2GB of memory and, of course, Jelly Bean - the latest Android operating system. All these make the device much faster than your average smartphone.
The Note 2 also comes with an eight megapixel main camera and 2 megapixel front-facing image sensor. Though the sensor may not have as high a resolution as a dedicated camera, it is good enough for a point-and-shoot experience.
Where the Note 2 really excels is in the display department. The 5.5-inch Super Amoled screen offers superb high-quality display and saturated color - great for watching downloaded movies.
The signature S Pen has been loaded with bells and whistles. Thicker than the old stylus, its rubber tip has 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
And a new feature called "Air View" allows you to activate the screen by simply hovering the stylus over the display instead of jabbing it on the screen.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system - faster than the original Note's Ice Cream Sandwich - also provides for a more intuitive experience.
For example, if you press the home key, it opens the task manager menu to show you all the apps which are running on the system. Facebook updates show at the bottom of the screen - even if the Note 2 has been screen-locked.
Want to get rid of that pesky ex? Note 2 has a Blocking Mode. You can stop calls or SMS from the same number without having to go into the phone setting each time.
Battery life has always been a concern with high-powered handheld devices. The Note 2 is powered by a 3,100 mAh battery. That is 600mAh more than the original Note so hopefully it will be able to keep up with all those energy-consuming components.
Samsung users will find some familiar consistencies. The power key is still on the right and the home button and headphone jack is within a handspan of each other so you don't need two hands to operate both.
And, like its predecessor, the Note 2 fits the portability requirements of any phone.
With dimensions of 151.1 x 80.5 x 9.4 millimeters and weighing just 180 grams, the Note 2 is light and slim enough to slip into the pocket.
