i am having troubles with my note2 friends :(

i thought getting a big phone with a big touchscreen might help with my finger coordination and image but it doesn't

i thought this one might help because although it has no buttons like all the other big phones at least this one has a stylus

can anyone tell me if it is possible to disable the fingerscreen and use only the stylus?

because i keep on pressing things on the screen with my fingers accidentally and weird stuff happens

one time i pressed something and i saw my own face on the screen and it totally freaked me out like you wouldn't believe

please help friends

Thanks to everyone who helped me to decide between the two colours, Titanium Grey is the colour that almost everyone voted for. So, now I've finally ordered the Note 2 in Titanium Grey!
Thanks guys.

Q: Is this phablet too big to carry around?

A: No. Guys who can't fit this phablet in his pants are wearing pants so skinny their sperm production is messed up. Girls don't carry phones in their pocket/skirts. They always carry it in their handbags.

Q: Is this phablet too big for one handed usage?

A: No. If you use it one handed exclusively i.e trying to reach every edge of the screen using your thumb then yes. But the thing is nowadays smartphones demand more two handed usage(qwerty keyboard, web browsing, pinch to zoom, setting the camera and so on and so forth). Even people with smaller screen use it two handed (3.5in iphone) and Blackberry users also use theirs two handed. So what's the one handed operation for? Unlocking screen, picking up calls, watching movies, watching slideshows, snapping pictures quickly without meddling with the settings, all which can be done on this phablet with no problem. So, NO the phablet is not too big for one handed operation.

**Those who said this phablet is too big for one handed usage most probably have only one hand which forced them to type on the landscape qwerty one handed and pinch to zoom while holding the device in the same hand. LOL imagine that.

After i got the note i rarely use the ipad... I think im gonna sell it real soon (plus my note) so i could get the note 2.

As for the note 2 I don't get it...isn't a tablet better suited for work or a smartphone for everything else ?

I'm not trying to bash it, but being so in between size-wise one cannot wonder if it's not bad for either end of that spectrum.

Is it too much to ask all the reviewers on the internet to stop mentioning the big size as a negative point. I mean forget about the s pen, forget about the specs, forget everything... The size of this device is the MAIN reason why people are buying it... If it wasnt for its size no one would think about it... The big size is the top feature of this phone... Makes working on it (literally working, playing, watching, browsing, typing...) such a bliss...
