hey nekko, 25 Oct 2012Q: Is this phablet too big to carry around? A: No. Guys who can't fit this phablet in his p... moreI 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.
I can not save photos from facebook.pls if you get my msg tell me how can i do it?
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 :)

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!
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.
