A lot of the innovation in the Galaxy Note II comes in the functionality attached to the improved S Pen stylus.
The stylus can now make specially-recognised gestures on the screen, while hovering over certain types of content with the S Pen can bring up previews.
Samsung has added other tricks too, such as bringing up a notepad just by withdrawing the stylus from the body during a phonecall.
