Denzo, 08 Aug 2012"Im sorry, do you take plastic?"i don't mind.
Galaxy note is made of plastic but it is sturdy and well built. I've dropped it several times and there's only minor 2mm bump on its rim
Woow.. Surely Note 2 will put iPhone in the garbage bin. Finally iPhone would compete with Symbian based smartphones. Even compared to Eclair, iOS 6 still much worse both in speed and features. RIP for overpriced iPhone and iOS. How do you think?

Jowever they do have the advantage of making hardware and software, thats why the run smoothly, where android hardware made.by one party and software is google so its a bit harder to be as compatiable, not saying that they dont do it. A chainsaw being used to cut the grass they job still gets done. Btw I am a android user!
"flexible AMOLED" - The reason is too many broken screens in SG Note 1?
i huv 1 ov deez handset i in india it da bestist fone i hav eva had onli thin is da sise iz veri bigest but i cari mine in my eliphants ear his dus nut mind. wul recumended 10/10
Note isn't smartphone. Cannot use aibgle hand too. So S series is the perfect way to use & demand. SIII best as I think.
sorry 2 dis. u but flex. display cost 200-300 $ more then normal if Sam note 2 come with it the price will be 1200$

if you dont like changes, like apple dont. same shit from last 5-6 years.. than you are an old man.
Iphone WAS great and NO DOUBT its still O.K but for medium \ low end market. dont even compare NOTE 2 with iphone lol.

Even the single-core Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S on ICS? Dude, face it, iPhone sucks. It's smooth because 50% of the apps don't support true multitasking. My uncle once had 89 apps open on his iPhone 3GS (on iOS 5, not jailbroken) and it still worked as smooth as my Xperia Arc S, which was on Gingerbread back then. No offense, but I'd rather have a lot of features and a little less smooth UI than 60fps UI and miserable functionality.
THE KMT6, 08 Aug 2012if the amoled unit is flexible what about the covering? flexible gorilla?If you google this you'll find some concept work that Samsung have been doing. One is for a foldable touchphone - bigger screen that folds to fit in pocket.
The current things this gives is ability to make phones thinner, and a stronger / more impact resistant screen. It would get paired with flexible gorilla glass, again to be thinner and also produce curved screens/phones easier & cheaper.
Flexible bracelet phones anyone?
if the amoled unit is flexible what about the covering? flexible gorilla?
ok..so does this mean upcoming phones from samsung will follow in the footsteps of galaxy nexus' design?
considering the slight curve thingy, apple cant sue them now, because its no longer a rectangular phone with rounded edges and home button, but rectangular phone with rounded edges and home button with slightly curved screen/body.
stonecold, 08 Aug 2012must u compare Samsung with iPhone. if u love iPhone stay with them and if u love Samsung stay... moreI agree. And good for you for trying something different!
Best advice is what you said - don't compare it to iPhone. They both do a lot of the same things, but they go about it differently.
It's the small things that make the difference for me. The customisability, the resizeable widgets (I have my calendar (integrated) and 4 email accounts (work & personal) running live on screen), file transfer ability, colour and better camera features do it for me. The iPhone UI is more consistent - true - but a quick clear RAM or restart and all good.
Wait for Jelly Bean (October/November) - I think you'll see a big improvement in day to day use.
Google and Youtube Galaxy S3 to find out about more features and what it can do. This is the other big thing - there's just soo much in the phone and tweaks available to make it work how YOU want as opposed to what the manufacturer wants.
It's not perfect, but I think Jelly Bean will start to change that.
