Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 preview: A closer look - read the full textThe Samsung Galaxy Note II is the epitome of the "go big or go home" mantra. From the screen, processing power, through the software package and the revival of the stylus, everything has been pushed right to the very edge of current technology...

And did you now you can use a stylus or hover it over the screen with gloves on? Good luck with that "flagship".

Very nice hardware, but crosses the fine line between tablet and mobile. If this had a windows OS, and was more business orientated then I think it would sell more.

As it is, it's a bit of a niche device IMO.

And add a dedicated camera button.Nokia still have to do that to our flagship

Nokia users still have to take off our gloves to use the phone in the snow...damn Samsung has better

Nokia as been trying hard to make a bloated lagging
skin for Windows Phone 8.
Also catching up on Samsung's color designs/shapes and trying to add Wireless charging.

Your right , Nokia is behind. My bad I'm jealous

However my point is the Note 2 is superior than the iPhone 4S (and most likely the next iPhone too) on those matters.

The 920 is only catching up with the rest of the market and has even lower specs than this phone, save for the camera. So get over yourself and pay a lot of money for a handset which is hardly a flagship.

superb but hard to use everyday if you talk really much. only for hard internet users. personally i will never buy any smartphone with display bigger than 4.5-4.6 inch. i think 4.3 inch with hd resolution is perfect for a hard user

many people do complain about the camera..i dont get it
i mean i see the cam is a secondary feature i wouldnt care if it was 5 MP but 8 is more than enough and about complains about dated the A9 processor and mali 400.i find my old note with dual core is fast enough and the mali 400 scored higher than tegra3 onex.
i think people here want a super computer mobile.
speaking of windows fans here that bashing the Gnote2
who said ur phone is lag free?
i used nokia lumia 900 its a bit laggy on par with my s2 the only true 98% lag free phone is the iphone though the ios is not my thing but to be objective and honest.
yes nokia is a great company i wish them luck.i wont be a brand loyal but thos phone is really nice and i like open source android with no limits its my choice n prefrence

Great flagship

yet again the Mali-400...(S2)
Still at 8mp...(s1)

Officially , Fans agree it's great and Samsung is showing leadership in all you should ever need anyway.
Thank you, happy to pay top dollar for it.

Unofficially, it sucks, no Mali-604T or 12mp, etc.
Disappointing like the S3....

> In reply to [deleted post]As much as I'd like to agree with you, I don't. I've seen many admen, designers, painters, writers and other creative people who are core iFans and own an iMac, a Macbook, an iPad, an iPhone and would have an iToilet if they could. I just don't get how anyone could consider the iPhone 4S over the original Note, especially if they belonged to this segment. And I suspect the same can be argued about the next iPhone and the Note 2. But we'll find out the day after tomorrow.

Samsung has one strategy. Take the best of everything that is popular at the moment and cram them into one awesome device. Its the same thing they did with s3. Nothing new. Nothing ground breaking. Just everything we wished we had in device x. They try to make their device future proof with no effort to try to shape the future. That is why i like nokia and symbian. symbian is dead but its legacy lives on in android. Nfc. tethering. Polarizer. Great camera. Call reception. Connectivity. Great battery life. Now wireless charging. Optical Image stabilization. Low light pictures. These are things people actually want. We just want them in our prefered device x. It cud be sony samsung or apple.
