The screen on my not never goes dim as long as I'm looking at it. And I see the icon appear from time to time to check if it detects a face. So either you haven't tried smart stay on the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3, or you're just on here telling lies. Which one is it?

To see what apps is minimize - double press home button, if you want to close them - after double press, touch and hold one of the apps that appear and the icon star shake with a minus sign on the left side up. press that minus sign and the app is close. That way you will save the battery life too. Respect!

iphone lover, 29 Dec 2012hy guys, i really love i5 but i have one question, does the i5 will never slow down or kinda l... moreNo bro Iphone doesn't know about lag & slow I'm so happy to use iPhone 5 I love apple
I had just purchased a iPhone5 in India, and within three weeeks it got mis-appropriated during a visit to a hospital. Unfortunately I did not have insurance cover for the phone, but I beleive that it has a iFinder software. Does anybody know how to trace the phone ? Thanks in advance.
hey guys, i have a question, when i play games like asphalt 7, when i quit the game by pressing the home button, does the game still on where i had left it or vice versa ? thanks.
[deleted post]Those stated points are subjectively good or bad.. not a comparing between ip5 or note2 or any apple/non apple products.
Split screen view sound nice, but most ppl do not have the attention of doing 2 things at the same time.. and the back key becomes awkward to control 2 application at the same time.
Smart alert/smart stay and face unlock does not work well yet.. and very dependent on surrounding lights.
The rest of the features are those for your android UI.. widgets/live wallpaper, both are battery intensive.. thats the reason ur carrying that massive battery all around.
Quad core is because android requires more processing power for it.. Toggles for wifi/bluetooth/ are made readily for your device because they drain massive battery compared to iphones/ipad which you do not even need to touch.. just leave it on.
Ppl like android for its features, but don get carry away because it offers more specs and features..Step back and think awhile, if those features could help make my real life easier? and if they justify the cost or not.. ? do they work well in all conditions or not?
Of all the features provided by Note 2 / S3 i find productive is as follows .. not those listed "features" you give:
1. physical led notification light
2. Bigger text (easier for old people to read on)
3. expandable memory / battery (subjective between people thou)
4. buddy page

Advance happy new year GSMArena, to all iOS users and to the people coming here! This is my last post here at gsmarena this year, coz my plan will expire today hehe... to all iOS users just enjoy your product and just ignore this hater coming here! REMEMBER HATERS ARE THE SECRET ADMIRERS HAHA...
[deleted post]Use it. And then talk. Did you see the speed comparison test between iphone and gs3? Check again. Why on earth are there so many people worrying about iphone? It seems like it is a real thread......I used iphone, note 2 and gs3.....and the fine tuning told me to get rid of the plastic phones with the droid inner.....
[deleted post]Words, specs.........please use the phone yourself, on a daily basis and in business....your list say nothing! I had note 2 and GS3 and gave it away! Smart stay?? It's not even working all the time! Weather widget on homescreen? You have to manually update it! Apps running in the background? It's eating your data and battery! Two tasks on one screen? Some people can't even operate ONE task! Use it and decide. Everybody on this forum and using phones know all the specs. I myself is reading and scrutinizing all top phones. And if a phone suits u, use it. But it doesn't make it a better phone for everyone. All the things you named....I bet that 99% of users don't even use it or know how to use it. And it is all gimmicks. All phones do have certain features that make them unique. Htc, sony, samsung, orange...name it, they are all depending on google for their os. Iphone on the other hand is writing their own. They have only ONE model competing against ALL other makes....and all manufacturers are comparing their many products with iphone!! What does that tell you???
[deleted post]It's the other way round, no matter what Samsung does it cannot get out of Apple's shadow. And even when they win, they lose, they outsell iPhone and yet cannot match Apple's profits, even with their cheating copycat ways, saving on R&D cost.
AnonD-79010, 28 Dec 2012Yeah, having scratches, especially out of the box isn't cool. Another thing is the rattling so... moreScratches out of the box agreed isn't ideal, but the rattling sound is the vibration motor, which is meant to move, not a flaw.
i love iphone 5, but seriously we need something like wifi direct for faster sharing. shoot video of my family and to transfer that to other device really take so much step on apple product. its always been the major flaw of iphone, they rely on another tech so much(fast internet,itunes,pc,mac,etc).
