AnonD-121248, 22 Nov 2013I certainly disagree on Camera.
Compared to Nexus 4, HTC One and LG Flagships, Note 2 camer... morebro..
sometime ago I was at a seminar.
I took photo with my note 2 camera & my friend took pic with her iphone 5.
my pic are too noisy in comperison to iphone 5.
note 2 take decent pic only at sunlight..not at indoor or at low light.
Other than the camera note 2 is an excellent device.
Pls dont fool people saying note 2 camera is DSLR or nice..its simply bellow avg..pls check 8 MP galaxy S2 or lumia 925 or se arc S, or nokia N8 or iphone 5 or any other Sony ericsson phone , then u will see how inferior note 2 camera is. ..
Hi,just updated 4.3 thru SC now the smart stay function is not working. Anyone facing the problem and if so pls provide the solution.
Guys iam not getting the update on my note 2..its keeps showing yr fone is up to date..plz help..any suggestions..
I have reset to factory default in my mobile now. Now the add cities in world clock is working.
I certainly disagree on Camera.
Compared to Nexus 4, HTC One and LG Flagships, Note 2 camera is way better.
Personally when I am viewing pictures on Big LED Displays, people often ask me which DSLR camera you have used. So either the people's eyesight are wrong or the camera display is good.
Android Version 4.4 Kitkat is coming to Samsung Galaxy Note 2!!!
jayr_marquez, 22 Nov 2013What is kies and OTA?:)OTA = Over The Air update, this is when your phone has a new firmware (software) update, and your manufacturer wants to push it to you :)
Samsung Kies, is like Nokia's PC Suit back in the old days :D -- a software that can sync your phone, update your phone and such things from inside your PC :)
ambience, 22 Nov 2013can anyone suggest me where can I find the developer option...????Settings, Security
Can some one let me know after upgrading to 4.3 , in battery status menu - settings -> more->battery
what wifi status its showing ? For me it showing continious Blue bar in both wifi on and off
jayr_marquez, 22 Nov 2013What is kies and OTA?:)Samsung Kies / ˈk iː s/ KEESS  is a freeware software
application used to communicate between Windows or
Macintosh operating systems, and more recently
manufactured Samsung mobile phone and tablet
computer devices, usually using a USB cable connection
(though wireless LAN Kies connectivity is now possible
using some devices).
OTA is over the air. If you update your Android firmware via Settings update (via operator network or Wi-FI ), it’s OTA.
Well I was overly excited about the 4.3 update for my N7100.
But the update actually is mediocre..nothing much from the 4.1.2
The display is crisper brighter and characters appear bigger and bolder
but the RAM usage has considerably increase along with the battery consumption. This is pathetic.
now my device doesn't make it through a day too. (earlier I managed a day and half)
overall it's smoother though but the battery part really sucked.
Overall I'd say we can expect more updates that would clear out the bugs.I would also like note 3 features to be transferred onto the note 2. Because this is seriously a crappy update.Nothing more productive has Been added ...it's all just a new look.
Idk why the pop up browser was scrapped.Man I feel awful. expected a lott more.

Please tel how to reduce noise in images. The pics which i click in my note is very noisy. Tel the best camera settings for taking good snaps.....
I am trying from day before yesterday but no luck. My phone model is n7100.please advise.
Not updated yet however due to past experience i can advise ppl to do a factory reset with wipe data (back up back up back up) and then use odin to flash the new update and if using sd card format it to fat 32 (back up back up) and then use it in the phone there wud b no problems with move to sd feature...and phone will be almost new ....if your rooted you will loose you root.
