Don Hils, 14 Aug 2013Please guys, is this Note2 really better than S4 as most people claim or are they just saying ... moreSpecs wise the note 2 isn't as good as the SGS4.
Personally i choose the Note 2 because of the battery life and screen. The other lesser advantage is the S-pen.
If the screen isn't a major point for you then the SGS4 is probably the better device.
PS the Note 3 to be announces next month WILL blow the SGS4 away if you can wait that long.
i have heard about that wifi bug with the note 2
i don't know if i have them coz it works perfectly fine
@the neighbor: do you have that bug? pls lemme know
Please guys, is this Note2 really better than S4 as most people claim or are they just saying it because it's the one they own? Can somebody give me a real good answer, if you say yes it's better pls give your reason(s) and if you say S4 is actually better pls give your reasons too. Thanks
It is advised to factory reset your phone before update so new update starts with optimized settings (includes any customization and authorization). It is possible that some software may malfunction or you face battery drain issues.
If you are with wifi and have on backup by Google, once your factory reset and update your NoteII and connects to Wifi and Your Samsung/Google Account, your all the software will be downloaded as it is and you will feel good about it (although it's a heavy download process). Hope this helps you!
Sorry,it will decrease demand of samsung products in India.I like samsung UI but,going to service centre with a new phone?.It is bad.This was my experience with new note 2.
Marovid, 13 Aug 2013The "return" button on my Note 2 doesn't work. Whenever I have to go back, I had to ... moreHappened to me, guess what they told me that whole touch panel will be repaired and will cost me 16000INR as it is water logging problem (PS it stopped with in 10 days and they can not prove it ).. i simply refused and took my case to consumer court and they are already negotiating as they know the battery back cover was again faulty and so it again is their manufacturing fault.
to cut short,. Service cneter people will blame you, dont accept the blame, and check ur back cover thoroughly if it makes any squeeking noise then do tell at service center and then u can counter blame samsung for lousy hardware.

Done... Have you replied to my question?.
If yes, is it possible to take backup of the Nokia N8-00 device from Samsung KIES?.
What about the SMS from 'My folders' and 'Drafts' in the Nokia N8-00 phone?.

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2013i am still lost what to buy, xperia Z or note 2, what do you recommend? since you tried bothThis depends on your priority: Design or Functions and Battery Life.
Note 2 won in term of battery life, self customisation, functions & quality (because of S Pen, easier to locate files, Sound Clarity & Photo Quality; although Xperia Z's camera is 13MP, the quality is worse than other smartphones with 8MP camera).
I find Xperia Z's screen irritating coz of the reflection under sunlight or a normal lamp. Other cons include cannot play music loud, terrible lousy battery life, bad photo quality, lack of accessories range in the market. Xperia Z's pros are its design, water proof, has built-in radio function, can connect to WIFI with ease (Note 2 has a bug in WIFI, very famous but too bad that I discovered after I switched to Note 2).
