If you've ever wondered what smartphone basketball superstar Lebron James carries, wonder no more. He just got his custom Galaxy Note II - an appropriately sized device, no doubt - and took to Twitter to show the world what Samsung made for him.


A phablet fit for a king, indeed.

    Makes me dislike the note...

    • GraveUypo

      question to everyone: why would you vote this down? it's his opinion and he clearly state it, so why do you care?

      • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

        ^voted down

        • GraveUypo

          well, congratufuckinlations, retard.

          • Let’s Get Along

            You need either a good meal or to get laid...either way, cool your jets. Why do you care if others care or not?

          • GraveUypo

            Just curiosity. Down or up voting comments is as useful as chewing air, i wondered why people would go out of their way and click to "repress" a pretty normal opinion. my last comment is what i think deserves downvotes because i was rude, not the first one in this chain, which was just a guy expressing his opinion (the whole point of a comment section). And yet, my rude remark has less downvotes than both my question and his opinion. I guess being anonymous turns people into pricks. So kudos to everyone who's actually posted something, even you Daniel Tiberius. <3

            let the thumbsdown rain fall.

          • Petro Kuosmanen

            You do not seem to understand. Think of the up votes and down votes more as a agree or disagree, I happen to disagree with his opinion so I pressed down vote.

      • Freak4Dell

        Probably because they're expressing their opinion that his opinion sucks. They just don't want to write a comment about it, so they downvote instead.

      • DavidKeith

        Im not sure the downvotes either... maybe because they feel the opposite and this makes them like the note. I don't know really.

    'No doubt' X's 2 BONUS! COMBO BREAKER!!!

  • thejuiceman236

    That makes me want the note lol big Lebron fan

  • http://www.facebook.com/andresdroid Andres Schmois

    I wonder if Samsung gave him two. One custom and the other to take a picture of the custom one to post on Twitter.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Samsung needs to give him a Note 10.1 - then it'll look properly sized in his paws.

      • Joe

        ...or more importantly, it would look appropriately sized with respect to his ego.

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    I go out for 5 minutes to buy groceries, and Cameron pulls this? Damn you, pickles!

    And for the record, I do think that etching is ugly as all hell. Whyyyyyy?

    • http://twitter.com/wade_county John P

      that's his nike logo.

    • QwietStorm

      Well it's an L and a J in a crown. I think it's cool.

      • http://twitter.com/misterE33 Mr E

        ohhhh.... i thought it was just a really really ugly crown

    • Freak4Dell

      Yeah, that's terrible. I'd rather have the Verizon logo on my home button.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      Don't call me pickles!


  • http://twitter.com/wade_county John P

    They shot the Lebron Samsung commercial this past Friday. Also, its not his first crack at Android. He used a HTC One X on the championship parade float. https://twitter.com/wade_county/status/261151184625229824

  • Daniel Martin

    thats just a galaxy note ii cover

  • enoch861

    I'm puzzled.
    What is that? Its not the battery cover.
    So what is it? A case that goes over the screen?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I think so - the speaker grill is showing through.

      • DavidKeith

        Its like the Samsung S 3 Smart cover but for the Note

        • enoch861

          Your right. Its kinda sorta worthless to be honest. I hope the Whole Note 2 he got is actually custom not just that cover thing.

          • Cherokee4Life

            exactly cause if its just a custom cover its not that cool at all. a "normal" person could do that lol

    • http://www.twitter.com/Genjinaro Genjinaro

      Yeah, I'm throuoghly confused.

  • http://twitter.com/vbm78 M Davis

    I clicked on this link to see this ugly phone he was given by Samsung and directly under it is an ad about feeding starving kids...

  • troph

    Ah so THIS is the target audience for phablets! No wonder they're so huge; they are made for giants!
    Jokes, but seriously, these sized phones are just a little too bulky for my taste (portability-wise).

  • Paulus Net

    Me envy that :)

    all i want is a flip cover for mine... it doesn't have to be special etched.. just let me buy one... crap...


    I swear, even though this phone is ABSOLUTELY HUGE, it looks like an iPhone would look in our hands!
