Samsung has announced that it has now sold over five million Note 2 smartphone device since it was released for sale earlier this year.
The company made the claim on a blog post, translated here from Korean, as it continues to challenge Apple for market dominance in the smartphone and tablet markets.
Although the figure is another impressive milestone for Samsung, it is still someway behind Apple with regards the speed of the sales, after its rival saw sales of the iPhone 5 hit five million its opening weekend.
Nevertheless, Samsung has also hit 30 million sales of its Galaxy S3 device, and now commands a larger market share than Apple, thanks to its backing of the Android ecosystem, which has a 75 percent market share.
V3 gave the Note 2 a four out of five star review when we assessed the device, noting that although it's super-large 5.5in screen may put some off, it's an excellent media and business device, offering a good camera and battery life and an excellent processor.
Furthermore, its S Pen stylus makes it easy to take notes and cut information from documents and web pages.
However, we noted that it can sometimes struggle differentiating between capital letters and including spaces accurately when typing.
