I was gifted an IPhone but hardly ever used it and stuck to my Nokia E71. To me, browsing the web means also checking the fine print, so what's the point using a smartphone screen? Until a friend showed me his Note 1, and that was Love at first sight. I immediately bought the Note 1 and love everything about it. As a small business owner rotating in 3 countries, I just bought the Note 2,and it's a marvel!Serious improvement to the Note 1, but I still love my Note 1 and highly recommend both. But of course, if you only need 1 phone, go for the Note 2, faster quadcore.I gave up my Kindle as these devices do it all for me besides my 17.3 inches laptop.Congrats Samsung! Brilliant job!

Hmm any easy trick to transfer apps to SD card?
And, i can't even transfer video files to card which are larger than 4GB (mostly my 1080p HD long duration home videos)!

> In reply to hey nekko @ 2012-10-25 05:47 from K1G9 - click to readI agree. To add, IMHO this is the edge of the envelop for "phablet". Any "competitor" claiming more is dreaming. 1 inch smaller and it's a phone. Just 0.5 inch larger and it is in tablet territory. The only way to allow it to grow a bit more is to make it even thinner and less bezel.

Several problems using the Note2 that r in my opinion unforgivable. The first one is syning with outlook. Their Keis software is useless and pretty much requires an exchange server. Businesses DO NOT want u to attach to this. Hone set up's do not have them available. This is sonething my 2 tear old phone could do well. Samsung=FAIL. 2nd is attaching a file to a text msg. I use androzip and was surprised it doesn't show up in the list (it shows up in enail). 3rd is the grey on grey email screen with zero contrast. Horrible implementation. Fourth is their keyboard which doesn't auto spell check and seems to choose the wrong letters a bit more than other ones. My typing suddenly got a lot worse. Couple this with doing it by pen...and you get exrra spaces everywhere.

Let me start off by saying I read a lot of online reviews and this one is one of the best I have ever read. I admit I am actually posting this a few weeks later than what I would have wanted to. When I was hungry for information at this phone launch, this reviewer (or gsmarena team, if that's how you want to be identified as :) ) quenched my thirst.

I visit gsmarena day very often for the reliable specification of mobile phones. Never thought they could come out with reviews like this. Appreciate the attention to detail the writer has shown. There was only I thing I could do after reading this review, BUY the phone :)

Please don't interpret this as the reviewer being positively biased towards the product :P

I can now say (after owning the phone for 3 weeks) that this is a stunner of a phone. One of the best screens u could ever see on a mobile device, blacks are truly black and colors are vibrant as you love. Way better outdoor / sunlight readability than all other AMOLEDs / SAMOLEDs. Very intuitive software and UI, blazing fast operation and close-to-none benchmark results. Hate to give credit, but I have to give it up to Samsung for the work they have put in on this device. I have to admit this is the sturdiest feeling Samsung phone yet. Plastics aren't cheap one bit and it sure has a premium feel. I am not comparing this to the premium feel or look the iphone 5 gives but then if you are spending half the money and getting twice the performance, no price for guessing who wins the Bang-for-the-buck award! Also bear in mind the real estate of this phone, iphone 5 with its 4 inch screen looks like the wannabe kid next door trying to the fight the HULK! :D

Totally in love with the phone and would suggest readers to go buy it if your card and your girlfriend allows you to :)

Disclaimer: I neither mean nor intend to convey any offence to apple users, its just a fair comparison.

P.S: This reviewer has successfully managed to make me his fan :)
