I really like the Note 2 but, the reason why I am kind of hesitant is because of the Xperia T that can go head to head with the Note 2. XT has better design and is physically gorgeous and performs great but its only dual core powered but, I know dual cores can still keep up but there's a trend that we should follow too like what LG did with Optimus G, quad core krait CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz and a GPU adreno 320 and 2 GB of RAM so, imagine if Xperia T has the Optimus G's feature, what do you think it will do to the Note 2? hope Sony will make a quad core device launched with android vanilla with 2 GB or RAM and clocked at 2 GHz if possible! of course, still with Krait, or maybe a newer chipset at that time and still with the same or similar design as the Xperia T. ^^
why just arguing about samsung, why dont you see, sony? sony has dual core processor with a 1 gb of ram memory, but with that specifications SONY XPERIA beats all the quad core mobile competitors. how's that and it is a IP57 mobile phone :D SONY rocks :)
Why does it say 1280x800 on the last picture? I though it had a 1280x720 screen
Whilst a nice device I am not sure why one would want to buy it unless just to show off. It has impressive hardware specs but the software is just so so. Hardware is far outstripping software development so I suppose if you are addicted to games and dont have a real life then this is the device for you. Having said that I have a Note 1 for presentations so it has a purpose but is certainly no where near a netbook replacement, and I dont play games. Now the real wild card is WP8 on a slightly larger device. That is worth waiting for.
quadcore (samsung) VS dualcore (SONY) ?!?!?!?!
sorry for samsung fans but ...
MAKE . BELIEVE
I'm confused....In the GPU alone the 225 shouldn't beat the oc'd Mali 400.
If those dual kraits smokin those quad exynos, (even though xperias on ICS and note 2 on JB) then i cant imagine what if it is quad krait on JB. It will make those apple and galaxy phone vintage. Oh my, i think im gonna sell my sgs3 while its still hot coz it got smoked!!!

Guys benchmarks results r not correct. note 2 is running Jealy_bean, so display refreshes at 60fps needs more procesor and GPU. While xperias are having 4.0.4 screen running at 30fps. So we can't compare note and Xperia right now. W8 when Xperia will get Jealy bean for correct benchmark.
i just bought nokia 808 which is an amazing device but sony devices are very impressive.
[deleted post]Either way the results are still worse then new Xperia line.
I'm impressed with the figures of the new Sony units. I think I'm gonna get the Xperia V
AnonD-36622, 01 Sep 2012Yeah yeah yeah you solved the case sherlock! But let me tell, all the galaxies I had got bad p... moreSolved the case?? How does that even refer to anything?? Again Sony's phones have always left me disappointed and if the xperia s is one of those improved ones your talking about they still got some way to go... the designs and build are probably the biggest thing they got going for them..
I'm only speaking from experience and as I said I hope I'm proved wrong but everyone's saying the s3 killer which is a massive compliment to the phone but kinda odd by the way because it seems to get so much negative attention. . go figure?? @
Anyway since the whole smartphone revolution Sony and lg have not bought out a phone even close to being top of the heap and with such attention... never heard anyone saying this new phone is gunna be the new Sony xperia /lg whatever killer!..
