my bad!! after updating my os for my sgnote2 i was really disappointed!!! so far for many features of the sgnote2 it was really good but for the battery issue it fast draining. hoping so for the next update of jellybean the battery cant drain fast
I finally got the original charger + extra battery set. Yes, I got the darn white one as I want to manage my charging much more efficiently without having to plug-in while in use. I read somewhere that effective charging is with the phone off.
The charger is squarish and absurdly large to be carrying around - and I don't see the need to be charging in my bag with a portable charger necessary as the battery's stamina can last up to 12 hours minimum (20 hours at moderate) per charge when using it quite heavily.
I made a carrying case from an ordinary A6 sized $2.50 notebook to help me organized for heavy usage and for long travels that fits 2 extra batteries:
It's simple and inexpensive. I opted for this instead of the Mugen extended battery type as it thickened and increased the weight of the Note II. I don't mind quickly changing batteries.

The quality is excellent and this is the thinnest 2-part type of protection. The all black silicone and black hard plastic parts combination is usual sold out. The only down side to the design is there is no fold stand. I might splice one in that is flushed to the surface of its back. It still works with the book case security.
I just feel Otterbox is way overpriced.

I love love love my note 2 :) no problem at all with its size. Fits inside my pocket easily. The big screen enhances your gaming, movie watching, even texting experience :) no lagging at all. No heating experience as well. On a normal usage, texting and calling plus a little internet surfing my note 2 can last for more than a day, easily! Without the internet surfing, almost 2 days! I am completely in love with it.

I have an SIII, and honestly I am in love with it, but I am considering getting the Note. So, will I miss any of the features? Is there this notification lamp, what about battery lifetime? Is there any drawbacks of the phone in general?
