Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the recently released phone/tablet hybrid from the South Korean manufacturer lacks the multi-window feature as advertised by Samsung according to the European consumers who have used it. The successor of Galaxy Note was supposed to include a feature that would run multiple applications in a split-screen mode.
The multi-window feature of Galaxy Note 2 was advertised in an official preview after the phablet was unveiled at the IFA conference. The multi-tasking function is started by holding the back button and activating a menu that users can navigate with the S Pen stylus.
There has been no official confirmation about the problem of Galaxy Note 2, though some users believe that the problem is due to the phone running the old firmware. The phone/tablet hybrid can be updated to the new firmware to correct the existing problem according to Droid Guy.
The Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5–inch screen, 1.6GHz quad-core processor and is lighter and thinner than its predecessor. It operates the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Jelly Bean and comes with an updated version of the S-Pen, the Galaxy Note’s unique stylus. The phone/tablet will also include 4G LTE service, the latest in network technology and an 8 megapixel camera.
Samsung has not made any comment or acknowledged the problem Note 2 users are facing. The Galaxy Note 2 has already been released in South Korea and the UK, but no official release date has been announced for the US. Samsung will be holding a media event on October 24 which might be the platform for announcing the release date of Galaxy Note 2 for the US.
