The glass gets scratched more easily than Gorilla glass. My friends complained and are not recommending Sony units.

You need to learn how to root, and unroot to get back warranty if there would be hardware issues. the default is given for those who aren't into this. All the needed information and video tutorials are in the internet. I can actually just freeze or uninstall big apps with data safely updated and backedup on cloud storage or micro SD. And you can easily transferr everthing you have with all the data intact to another rooted unit.

I keep my internal relatively quite small and format it from time to time.

Other units will boast of their higher res camera, another about how smooth the user interface that brand has, how brand X has such high frequency quad-core, and still another will boast about how much pixels and ppi it has. You will hear ignorant brand fans talk how bad the Note is compared to what they bought.

I am someone who appreciates innovation like what Samsung has combined an excellent mix of power, vivid image recording, vivid screen, useful stock utility apps like S Note, and the Note series is the only one that has a true active Wacom stylus system which I use often since the first Galaxy Note for sketching and working out architectural designs. No way anyone can convince me something else to spend on or swap with.

Heck, I'm never only an exclusive Samsung branded device user. I use an HTC Chacha for a secondary phone while commuting as a safety precaution. I have the street sense not to flash around the Note while walking alone at night. A Sony Smartwatch does the job of reflecting and answering messages, music control.

Everything is fine except I think not putting in Stereo Speakers was a mistake. A mono speaker isn't good enough for a tablet phone, especially one with such strong multimedia capabilities

I am happy to report that the Note II has exceeded my battery longevity expectations! To date, I've operated the device today with surfing occasionally over wifi and 3G for over 16 hours, downloaded 3 full ROMs for my rooting activities, connected to my smartwatch & wireless earpiece the entire time on bluetooth and it still has 20% to spare. I could roughly say it was some half the time idle while doing or traveling, listening to about 4 hours of music via bluetooth.

I would like to congratulate the Samsung team who improved on this hardware feat. I can now expect even better performance stamina to come when you start producing units with the new 8-cores processor.
