okay so Samsung solved the brightness issue for Super AMOLED...nice!
Good job but not great.
A Dual SIM would meke it great.
A sliber QWERTY Pro version would make it Outstanding
I have Note 1 (2 months old now) i will wait for review before upgrading
Have the Note and it is AMAZING!! Can't wait to get the Note II; quad core and 2 GB of ram. Hope they don't do something stupid with it before it comes to Canada though.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2012This is the reason why I held off with S3. I will never ever make the mistake I did with S... morer u insane.. how come note 2 is downgraded its specs r above than S3 n note 1... on what basis u say its a downgraded device?? its an upgrade over note n S3 both... look at specs if u r confused...
James, 30 Aug 2012I have a Note 1 and while it is good, it is still not a netbook replacement, so just remember ... moreYep. I'm upgrading from an S2 to the Note2. Bigger, quad & 2gigs - can't go wrong. ICS screwed up my GS2.
John, 30 Aug 2012You know you have a great product when the other fanbois (mainly apple) cant wait to bag it ou... moreThis is the reason why I held off with S3.
I will never ever make the mistake I did with S2 because no one told me Galaxy Note is the iPhone 4's killer, the Galaxy S2 (which I have and learned to live with)!
Galaxy Note FTW!
The reason they down grade the Note 2 is for it not to cannibalize the S3's sales.
Bad move Sammy.
But Still Galaxy Note 2 >>>>> S3!
But will Note 2 kill the iPhone 5???
does thz have the smart features of S3 like smart stay eye tracking, s voice n s beam.. well it has nfc so s beam would be there... also the screen is pentile, not RGB as samsung told before that they'll make GRB instrad of pentile but that okay... the build is same like S3 n so the design n i really liked it... rest things r good but i think it wont beat quad core krait of optimus G on benchmarks but will sell more than optimus G thats for sure..
why couldn't Google make this the next nexus? very disappointing nexus series so far :(
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2012ok! This is just another yearly update.. It is more powerful and a bit change in this and that... moreThat's actually being called a "phablet" by Samsung editors. Shortened from phone/tablet not phoneblet. Idk who decided to butcher new contracted word. I really don't care. I just can't wait to get one. Especially after they've increased that battery!
I saw the samsung galaxy note 2 in the net and also the features. The battery is very good.
Resolution is down :(
Camera is the same.
No problem with the shape.
Looks sexy to me.
Worth a purchase.
I am now just waiting for the iphone 5
John, 30 Aug 2012Yes its removable, Its 3100mah compared with the old note at 2500mah.The S3 had a battery 27% bigger than the S2 with a 25% bigger screen area and achieved typical battery improvement of 20-25% (based on gsmarena tests).
The Note 2 battery is 25% bigger than the Note but the screen is only 4% bigger in area so the improvement should be at least 25-30% me thinks :-)
Corse, 30 Aug 2012The battery, is it removable?Yes its removable, Its 3100mah compared with the old note at 2500mah.
Now the era of 3.5" screen high end smartphone is over. Samsung frequent new innovations has really changes the Google Android world.
Let,s hope Apple does not/should never allow to infringed Samsung phone/ tablet screen model sizes of 4.3" 4.8" ,5.3" ,5.5" ,7" ,7.7" etc etc in the days to come, either dead or alive !
Five Sitara ***** to the new Note II.
