Take note that 4G capability is not available in most countries. They wouldn't even dare put the 4G chip in the international version.

Why can't Samsung make 4G available out of the box? Apple can do it with their iPhone 5 can do it, why couldn't you, Samsung? Should we wait for Galaxy S4 or Note 3 before we get 4G as a standard?

People People People,

After a long long confused weeks, I got to see both Iphone 5 and Galaxy Note 2...As a MAC lover waited for Iphone for a long time...Loved my first 5 mins with the device and then got bored as I was using Galaxy S2 prior to this and I hardly saw something new and exciting....But that was not the same case with Note 2....I litreally spent 30 mins and dint lose my excitment..

Features like:-
Air View
Page Buddy
Direct call
User Interface
Smart stay
Amazing S -pen
S-voice
Wifi bonding
S-note
Idea sketch
Productivity tools
EASY CLIP
Best faces
Best photo
Jelly Bean OS
Battery back up
Gallery
Video play back
The screen clarity 5.5 HD
Quick Command
Uff i can go on and on about this....Yeah if someone asks me will I use all these features...may be...but the fact is I aint paying for all these as I know other brands can add one of these features in future and charge for it too....

The things i wanted Great processor 1.6 quad core and GPU...gaming at its best....NO LAG...2 GB RAM....and all I paid was 60% of the money i paid for the hype i got from IPHONE....


SAMSUNG thank u so much......Cheersssss

I have a few small and a big addition and one error in the review to add.

Small additions:
-in the stock videplayer you can zoom in and out with pinch to zoom while watching a video (i dont mean pop up play)
-in the picture gallery in the mode rectangular grid and 3D spiral you can also pinch to zoom in and out
-when you make 20 photos with burst shot mode, you can then watch those in sort of a slow motion diashow with music

Big Addition:
-sadly you guys haven't mentioned the awesome multi windows feature which is just amazing

Small Error:
-with the video camera you can do slow motion videos up to 1/8 and fast motion up to 8x times the normal speed and not just 1/2 and 2x as you mentioned.

Besides that a great and comprehensive Review.

I guess there won't be a multi-tasking update now that the SW is out?
