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.

If you want to have innovative technologies look at the lumia 920....far more innovations than the iphone. Just in the camera department there are 3 nice ones.

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...

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.
