Don't flash a custom ROM on this. All the S-Pen apps would be lost (they're Samsung propietary and they're not on the Play Store) and also the MHL TV-Out stops working :(
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2016this is 4gThe 4G version for AT&T is called Samsung Galaxy Note II SGH-i317. Surprisingly, its specifications are NOT here in gsmarena :/
good smartphone strong too and better than note 3 in strength and os stability and battery life-time
I just love the screen size and after upgrading ma phone, it's been running smoothly. It perfect for playing games - fifa 14 to fifa 16, Real racing 3, WWE immortals, etc. I will like to see an upgrade to 5.1 or 6.0. though.
Please do not buy it because Samsung company do not provide us new update however they provide 4.4 kitkat
This phone is awesome!!! Been using it for four years or so, and not planning to buy a new phone until this thing died.☺
after 39 months of mostly satisfaction .. my n7100 died (not really it still working but accidentally dropped for the xxxth Time .. but this one cracked the glass screen & where i live fixing this matter is expensive & unworthy) ... truly a remarkable handset .. i owned galaxy pro & S2 before N7100 & they were nightmares .. after samsung declared there wont be lollipop update .. i rooted mine & removed the bloat software ... results was WOW ... time to move to another handset
I using Note-II since the year 2012 December. It is good but little bit slow in opening applications. There is any possibility to upgrade Software?
Don't listen to what he said, it's not true. 4.4.2 is totally fine and actually makes it go a bit faster. His Note 2 is probably cluttered with some unwanted apps.

Hello Frnds I want to know about the best version for Note 2 i am using it from last 2 yrs jelly bean now am boored so tell me about the best Rom and the Version t0.......
My Note 2 has difficulties in booting completely. It boots half way, then off. Can someone suggest what should be done.
I've had this phone since Jan 2013, and started on custom Roms in about 2014. I've gone through about 20 roms, and am currently running 6.0.1 with the latest Resurrection Remix build (gets updated atleast once a month!). Can't recommend enough. Brings it bang up to date, why bother dropping £600 on a new phone... Tried the undervolting and overclocking route with Agni Kernel, and the DN4 rom, bit of a pain to be honest. Was stable at 1.8ghz, but its not worth the hastle IMO.
debeast1, 29 Mar 2016The note 2 was released in 2012. How come you have been using it for 5 years?Good question !!!. Rofl.
jiji, 29 Mar 2016 my note 2 battery is draining fast how to fix this issue the problem start with kitkat up... moreForce stop and disable all the unnecessary / bloatware like google play music, google books, google games, hangouts etc.
Set the device brightness to manual at less than 30% when indoors and at night.
Do not keep widgets in any home screen. Turn off auto sync and WiFi google search location in the settings.
Just force stop all the rarely used apps (like bookmyshow, train availability etc) after using them. Buy a new original battery and test with the same usage pattern. Then come to a conslusion.
