Just got a better than Otterbox Defender casing called Survivor (fake Griffin brand) for $12 (P500) in Manila.

jeevan, 29 Mar 2013can i use it without any problems for at least 4 years? many say it has an outdated gpu mali40... moreDon't listen to anyone stating that it has outdated this or outdated that. This Samsung phone is by far the most advanced and most useful smart phone that I have ever used and I definitely will not go back to an iPhone. Its usefulness is quite awesome. I was planning to by an iPod but I don't need to buy one now. The big Samsung screen can easily be used as one. The Samsung phone size feels really great and my hands are small but I can easily handle it with one hand as for the wand that comes with this phone, to write letters, etc. on, works fantastic and it has a very big keyboard and I find that typing is a breeze on it. Phone reception is fantastic because due to its size, it has a bigger antenna and talking to people, it's crisp and very clean sounding. I really like it and I am so happy that I bought it. It's a wonderful phone, well worth the money. So many useful features and it’s extremely fast on the World Wide Web. I honestly feel, that it is the best and most advanced, (Taking into account it large screen and all that it does so well.), smart phone on the market.

jeevan, 29 Mar 2013can i use it without any problems for at least 4 years? many say it has an outdated gpu mali40... moreSamsung phones last a very long time. My previous phone to the note 2 was the i8910 omnia hd which is over 3 years old and it still works as well as it did when i bought it. The phone has an 8 mp camera and amoled screen which is still a good spec for today.
4D1L, 28 Mar 2013That feature works with certain apps like viber. The developer of the app which your trying to... moreHi 4D1L,
I have a htc sensation running ICS. I have installed the same apps that are movable on Htc Sensation to Samsung galaxy note 2, but the option is not available. So I guess yasir's advice might work.
I really want to thank the Samsung Nigeria customer care service centre for resolving the battery drain issue with my note 2 without any scratch or dent as I feared. I traced the drain through the help of the Apps, CPU Spy and Better-Battery-Stats, to have come from a kernel bug (mhl_wake_lock) that prevented the phone from going into deep sleep, thereby heating up constantly, consuming lots of RAM, not being recognised by computer probably because of the faulty MHL cable system, and not snappy as should be. Now, my phone is breezy fast, without any problems. Am so o happy!

My previous firmware was buggy and would freeze and reboot a few times a day.
The latest hasn't frozen for since i installed it (a week or so). Battery life is awesome. Even on light to moderate use i'm pushing 2 days. Heavy use is no problems for a day.
i have a samsung galaxy note 2 n7100 and i personaly think its a shit phone it freezing alot does not wanna download at all from the play store and yes i created several google accounts still does not wanna go in the playstore i think im running away from blackberry but i ran into sumthing much worse
Elzabè, 29 Mar 2013How is the sound when you make a phone call?the sound during the phone call is great better than I phone. and you also get a extra volume setting feature. This is a master piece by Samsung till now. Best smart phone ever.
jeevan, 29 Mar 2013can i use it without any problems for at least 4 years? many say it has an outdated gpu mali40... moreI would say that it would be fine but no piece of technology is guaranteed to be up with things (or even working) in 4 years.
I installed Real Racing 3 a few weeks ago which is probably the most graphic intensive app around. It looked amazing and was super smooth with no lag or anything.
Given that you can now get note 2's for under $540 AU you wont loose a massive amount if you want to upgrade in 2 years anyway. You will lose a lot more if you get something like the HTC one or SGS4.
