I've recently updated my note 2 to android 4.3 and after the update my S-pen software started crashing again and again. I did a factory reset after taking backup of all my important documents and the problem got solved.
Now my note 2 is functioning buttery smooth. Also I love the ability to shift my apps to sd-card. Thank you Samsung and Google for providing this beautiful update.
I'm from India and I got my update yesterday.
So to all those who are experiencing various problems after the update I advise a factory reset after installing the update.. Enjoy the fresh note 2.
Note 2 Rocks.....!!
nickie, 20 Nov 2013Ths s for all those plannig to buy note-2...I bought ths fone 2mon back..at first it was ok...... moreThe design yes, big to be grabbed, but I am still OK with Note II N7100. I like its performance and battery life. I bought this Note II second hand, has been used before by a friend for 1 year and 1 week, the battery still the same ( from he bought until I use his it, not replaced), the charging took for 7 hours or more (on my Note II). I charged on Nov 18, 2013 (14%) on 22.55 PM, finish charge (100%) on 06.07 AM. On Nov 19, 2013 I charged when the battery was 4%, finished charged (100%) on 06.18 AM.
I just now updated my phone to 4.3... things are good except the RAM utilization...its using a minimum of 1GB space all the time even if I kill all the running application..Any suggestions pls?
mario, 20 Nov 2013dial*7284# and check in pda.click on save and resest..Before people with username 007G replied my comment, I had tried dial *#7248#, I saw it had been chosen PDA both UART and USB. I searched on Google, read some information and comments, it said Galaxy S III and Galaxy S II only given for MTP acces and other said should be rooted. Well, never mind, I wouldn't like to root.
Yesterday I updated my phone to android 4.3. Changes are welcomed but not good (perhaps not used to). Performance is better than before but ram consumption raises. Heptic feedback not working at all even after vibration intensity set to max. Colour reproduction better. Battery consumption raises. So those are anxious about battery life should think twice before updating. Setting changes are more customisable.
Above all my phone looking a brand new.

nickie, 20 Nov 2013Ths s for all those plannig to buy note-2...I bought ths fone 2mon back..at first it was ok...... moreI can't stop laughing. The phone takes 9hrs to charge? You gotta be kidding. Then again it prolly means you dont leave your phone alone while charging and thats ibviously why it takes that long time. Check your charger too. What capacity output does it have? Hope it's up to 1Amp at least? As for you SUDHAKAR you agreed totally with this guy on this battery issue. My simple question to you is, are you sure you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or you are a nokia n8 user trolling all the way here?
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2013Plz guys understand Sudhakar is jus a troll here..dnt bother his opinions or problems.. Well said..
i have purchased note 2 recently..
# battery life :
Android is a battery hungry os.. in comparison to another Android mobile , note 2 will give u better battery backup.
I have to charge my sony ericsson LWW 3 times a day vs note 2 once a day @ same workload.. Lumia are batter in battery backup but weak os .iphone are the worst .Best one is symbian but outdated . My nokia E5 give me 72 hrs backup with moderate use .. My note 2 take just 2 hr 15 min to be full charged.. I dont mind to charge my cell at every 24 hrs .
its painful for hand & pocket to use it as a regular phone .
I use it as a tab replacement .
I have another 7 mobile to call with .. I strongly disagree to buy it for regular telephony . If ur one hand is engaged in another work u may not receive a call with other hand & more chance to drop it .
I m disappointed .
In day light its managable.
But at night it gives dark pic even with flash.. Its our right to get a good camera @ so much price we invested..
My kid not ready to stand 4 seconds to snap with low light mode.
MY SUGESSION FOR MY FRIEND- buy Lumia 925 / 1020 + + a cheap china android Tab to play with. thanks all

Plz guys understand Sudhakar is jus a troll here..dnt bother his opinions or problems..
AnonD-20890, 20 Nov 2013If you are charging with 500 mAh charger, then the charge time will be more.

According to laws of thermodynamics, No machine/device however efficient will have an efficiency of 100%, some energy will get wasted however small it may be in undesirable form, like heat. That's why the charger and device getting charged gets heated while charging. So it will always be greater than 93 minutes. How much will be the difference would primarily depend upon combined internal resistances of your device(battery) and charger.
Ths s for all those plannig to buy note-2...I bought ths fone 2mon back..at first it was ok...then d prob started.camera-not clear n always OUT OF FOCUS of,hanged for 3-4 times,now it has becom very slow...totally not satisfied wit d set..n its too big,heavy to carry too..but last two r its features n cannot blame about tat...n last but not d least, it takes 7-9 hrs to get charged...so bfore buying jus give a second thought..n may be my fone s like ths..so check out!!!
[deleted post]If you are charging with 500 mAh charger, then the charge time will be more.
My N7100 is taking 3 hours (not using the phone when charging) to charge 100% using the 2000 mAh charger that came with it. I think this is abnormal. It should take 93 minutes to charge (3100 mAh battery divided by 2000 mAh charger capacity x 60 minutes).
