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 Lumia are batter in battery backup but weak os .iphone are the worst .Best one is symbian but outdated .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!!!

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).
Sunny, 20 Nov 2013Yes bro i am also facing the same problem, recently purchased a new original battery to avoid ... moreI have bought new N7100 on 28-08-2013. Till then, battery is draining fast. In mobile network on (all other radio signals and mobile data off), 20% display brightness, 1 minute display off time, no outgoing and incoming calls or SMS and no background process, I am getting only 24 hours backup time.
All others are reporting my post on battery backup. So it gets deleted. Senseless idiots. They are blindly saying (without heart and blood) that battery backup is good in this phone.
Any feedback, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

AnonD-20761, 20 Nov 2013Let us know if it worked.I have just tried. Remove microSD, then connect Note II to PC via USB cable, still nothing happen, open Samsung Kies, nothing happen too (please connect a device that appears), only charging.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 official upgrade to Android 4.3 rolled out and now available through Kies.
No problems in it
definitely go ahead and upgrade through it.

But this update sucks, not happy with update. It is laggy update, not buttery smooth. Battery and Ram consumption also increased. Try Air view Spen in Gallery, pics dont change in Gallery. I recommend don't update
Upgrade to Android 4.3 has been rolled out for Samsung galaxy note N7100 and its a stable version with no problems in it. No data deleted during the upgrade and can be only done through Kies. Don't worry go ahead and get it upgraded.
To all :
Click 'add city' option in clock --> world clock. Have you tried?.
It is displaying 'unfortunately clock has stopped' for me (after updating to JB 4.3.
4.3 is a piece of shit I think.
I am facing this issue even after restarting the phone. I do not know what to do. Any solution?.
AnonD-205976, 19 Nov 2013should we take back up our phone before update as it'll format our phone? how about downloadi... moreNo need to take backup. Nothing will be erased. But in case if mobile switches off (low battery, loose battery - battery cover open etc) during updation, then it will corrupt the phone.
So if you are concerned about the data, you can take the backup of SMS, call logs, phone memory apps and settings in KIES. No need videos and all (if they are stored in memory card).
The update is 700 MB. The download time will vary depending on the internet connection speed.
Do not update now. Because I am getting error when adding city to the world clock (Clock --> World clock --> add city).
