The GALAXY Note II living room: AllShare Play

If you want to set up the multimedia powerhouse that is your Samsung GALAXY Note II in the living room, you will be glad to hear that it's pretty easy to share your music, movies and photos with the world.

After all, with its high def 5.5-inch display, powerful quad-core processor and 8MP camera, there's little reason why you would want to keep all the quality content on your smartphone to yourself.

So it's lucky that the GALAXY Note II is extremely well equipped when it comes to sharing and streaming content, allowing you to utilise your home cinema, hi-fi and entertainment tech in your living room to enhance your experience.

DLNA certification explained

Perhaps the most important thing to know is the fact that the Samsung GALAXY Note II is DLNA certified, meaning it can easily communicate with other DLNA products, such as TVs, laptops, tablets and games consoles.

This allows you to wirelessly share media between devices, so if you've just recorded an HD video using the GALAXY Note II's camera, you can then stream that to your compatible HD TV, to show your work of art off to the whole family.

Photos can also get the same treatment, so you can quickly and effortlessly show off the snaps you've taken with the 8MP camera on the back of the Note II on your television or computer screen without the need to dig out any messy and annoying wires.

The GALAXY Note II can also receive media from other devices, so if you fancy streaming a how-to recipe video from your computer to your smartphone while you're cooking dinner, no problem.

GALAXY Note II Wi-Fi

AllShare Play: the ultimate entertainment app

If you're unsure how you could possibly get all this technology talking to each other then Samsung is here to help, in the form of the ultimate entertainment app - AllShare Play.

AllShare Play comes pre-installed on the Samsung GALAXY Note II and provides an intuitive interface which automatically searches for other compatible Wi-Fi devices.

Once it's found another device you can then choose to send or stream media from your GALAXY Note II with the touch of a button. It really is that easy!

The AllShare Play app also lets you save all the content you have on the GALAXY Note II to your PC without having to connect the phone with a cable, ensuring that all your photos, videos and music tracks are stored safely.

No issues for streamers and dreamers

Finally, there's an excellent FAQ section within the AllShare Play application which provides you with all the information you need on using the app, registering devices and streaming music between them.

If you ever get stuck just hit the menu button below the screen and select FAQ, and the simple, step-by-step guide will have you on your way in no time.

Plus, if your tech at home isn't DLNA enabled then you can still pick up the Samsung AllShare Cast Dongle, which will allow you to stream content wirelessly from your GALAXY Note II to your non-internet enabled HD TV.

As TechRadar noted in its Samsung GALAXY Note II review: "If you're a streamer, you'll have no issues here."
