not as versatile as a phone , not as good for multimedia as a tablet

seems pointless except if you don't have money for a good smartphone and a decent tablet and you still want something from both worlds

would love to see Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running on WP8. s-pen+windows phone 8 would be magic.

Guys not sure if this feature was there in the previous note or not, but note 2 screen doesn't accept finger input when it senses that the S-pen tip is in proximity of the display. You can try it out, very handy feature that prevents accidental touch input when you are writing something with the S-pen :). Cheers !!!

Hi guys,
I am going to buy the Galaxy Note 2. But, I am confused between which colour to choose; Marble White or Titanium Grey. So, can you guys please recommend a colour for this phablet, along with the reason?
Thanks in advance.

> In reply to Sammy @ 2012-10-15 17:54 from PSLa - click to readthanks Sammy. tried it at the store before commenting, but was confused since i did not want to spend rs. 40,00 and then regret. I felt i could get comfortable to it since i have used an omnia HD a couple of years back but was worried about its comfort level in regards to everyday use. Nevertheless, i bought it! :)
And with the kind of phones and phablets out there, skinny jeans should have been out of fashion a year back :p
thanks again!

Only thing that has been said and I will repeat: Keeping it in pocket can be an issue if you are used to wearing skinny trousers, else you should be fine.

planning to buy a note 2 but im really worried about the size. im a short fellow and some of my friends suggest its not for me.
next option is an SIII but im not very excited about it and i dont want to move to iphone5 from my current iphone 4.
would be really helpful if someone who has used/ is using a note or noteII could comment on its comfort in use.

I'm curious about the audio comment saying the iPhone5 might be a slightly better choice for audiophiles.

In my opinion, clean audio is more important than loud audio plus you can always get an app or kernel to make a device louder. It seems difficult to get better crosstalk, etc. results without a hardware re-design.

This is not a trolling post. However, could someone explain where my logic is wrong? I'm considering several phones including the S3, Note 2, and the iPhone 5. Thanks for your time.

I am mostly happy with this phone. The thing I don't like is I can not lock the exposure to reframe in camera. I can do this easy in N8.

> In reply to dudin @ 2012-10-14 01:01 from 85@m - click to read-Sony has had so called retina display since like 08. Most of the top phones today have *RETINA* sometimes better....nowhere near a dealbreaker
-LOLOLOLOLOL CRApple maps is horrific joke right now
-BEST CAMERA?????????? Lol. Have you even used one? If you check the compare tool and reviews obviously purview is best but to be fair than you can go for Nokia 920 whish is way way better or even S3 which is mostly better....

Removable battery? Extreme downfall. No SD slot? Extreme downfall. IOS? Extreme downfall.

So You still have yet to mention anything except sometime Siri....

-retina display
-3D maps
-camera better than any other (and i have DSLR which now i don't use anymore, why they keep selling those? )-and lumia is no better. were faked videos.

the only thing i accept iphone is not the best is the lack of replaceable battery.
