The Samsung GALAXY Note II might be a great tool for work – but it can also help make holidays and time out with family really come to life!
Picture the scene: you’re happily working away when you get a picture message from your sister - it’s a screen-grab from her GALAXY Note II and it’s from her S Planner, and it’s got the 31 March circled, with the caption ‘Looking forward to seeing you!’ written with the S Pen.
What on earth does that mean? Oh right, it’s Easter coming up, and you’ve only got a couple of days to get ready! How could you forget?!
Planning Easter fun on the Note II
Luckily you’ve also got a Note II on you, which means this holiday planning lark has gone from being a potential nightmare to a piece of cake… well, a piece of Easter egg, at least.
First you’ve got the issue of making sure you’ve got enough eggs for everyone to go around – and with the whole family descending, that’s not going to be easy, especially as they all prefer the ‘personal touch’. Well, what better way to do that than by making personalised chocolate eggs?
Note II to the rescue again here: you’ve bought your ingredients, and with the bright and expansive HD Super AMOLED screen you’re streaming an online cookery video that shows you precisely how to make them as you go – which means that your Mum’s going to be particularly impressed this year.
Easter entertainment on call
Next up is the entertainment – and you know that both the kids and adults alike are going to want to make sure it’s Easter-themed.
Well, what better way to get everyone out and about than with a good, old-fashioned Easter Egg hunt? Simply fire up Google Maps on the Note II and choose some great spots around the area to secretly hide some eggs – but make sure the squirrels can’t get to them first!
Then write out some clues to their locations using S Note – and after that you can hand over your GALAXY Note II and your excited Easter troupe can use Google Maps and all the S Note clues on one screen thanks to Note II’s Multi Window, the amazing multi-tasking feature on offer.
Capturing the ultimate Easter Egg trail
Of course, you’ll want to keep a decent memory of the treasure trail, so with the fast 8MP camera you’ve got the perfect way to capture every jubilant find, frustrated searching and tired champions at the end.
Plus, with the Samsung GALAXY Note II you can take this even further – because this handset includes a range of stunning filters than can make your snaps look even better than ever – perfect for a one touch upload to a Facebook album or swiftly posting them to Twitter or Google+.
And there’s also that video of the kids running around, faces smeared in chocolate and smiles that your sister just loves – can you put it on a memory stick and send it to her, she asks? Well, there’s no need for that given you’ve both got a Samsung GALAXY Note II – simply put the phones back to back and the video will be on her device in seconds thanks to the advanced S Beam functionality!
Artistic amusements for the evening
Those kids have had far too much chocolate today though – so despite the Easter egg-sploits they’re still bouncing around the house and you need to entertain them. Well, what do you know? The GALAXY Note II comes to the rescue once more!
Firstly you take a picture of their Mum using the inbuilt Paper Artist app – it’s all in black and white for now, but pull out the S Pen and set the tykes a colouring challenge: whoever can colour in the picture the best will win a special prize!
That’s got them interested, right? Suddenly they’re as quiet as can be while they all have a go at showing they’ve got the best colouring skills… and with the multi-pressure sensors on the S Pen, there’s a lot of scope for getting it right.
A movie to top off the ultimate Easter
What’s the special prize? Why, it’s the chance to choose the movie you’re all going to watch tonight! Little Patrick wins with some… artistic license taken, and he wants to watch his favourite film. But oh no! You don’t own that one on DVD!
Luckily you’ve got the AllShare Cast dongle attached to your TV though, which means you can browse the plethora of titles available to rent or buy on Samsung’s Video Hub or Google’s Play Movie store on your Note II, and with a quick tap stream the film to your TV in no time at all!
So, there you have it. From panicky preparation to executing the perfect day for all involved, your Samsung GALAXY Note II is the perfect smartphone to bring you everything your need this Easter.
