guys i'm going to buy this phone tomorrow .. is this phone good or not ???
Don Hils, 10 Aug 2013Please with about 50 apps or more installed, does this phone lag? Please be honest if you know... moreBoth my anti-virus and anti-adware apps always display the total number of apps scanned; and after my most- recent wee-hours-of-Monday-morning automatic scans, those apps told me that I have a whopping 451 apps on my Samsung Galaxy Note II (SGH-i317/AT&T)...
...and it's still fast as greased lightening. Of course, it's not quite as fast as when I took it out of the box and only the stock apps were on it; but, believe me, it's now only a tiny, tiny bit slower, overall. It does, however, take a bit more than " little" longer to fully boot-up from "off" state than it did when first taken out of the box. But since I only do that once a day, in the mornings, after I get up, and while I'm in the shower, I couldn't care less.
Any phone, though -- even the Note II -- if asked to do too many things at once, will slow down. Running any Android phone requires some discipline regarding multi-tasking, and properly closing apps (by either using their "Exit" menu items, or using the BACK keo to back out of them, and actually close them, instead of simply bailing out of them and leaving them running in the background, by exiting them using the HOME button), else any Android phone will slow down.
This one, though -- this Note II -- is a screamer... no doubt about it. You will NOT, trust me, be disappointed.

It happens so when you are playing videos. The music player stops playing the video when u turn the screen off.

clientelle, 10 Aug 2013so there is also a 5 pin cable for faster charging? thanks for the tip manyeah..most of the sony charger cable comes with 5 pin..samsung charger cable come with 4 pin..u can get another cable from samsung store also which has 5 pin..its worked for me..im using sony cable..its charge my note2 much faster than before.. try it..all the best
there is a reason why people keep asking which one is better
or whining why their phone sucks
that is because before you buy your phone you did not try to know what your preference is...
well mine is
daily apps like bible, flashlight, dictionary etc
and many more
all these in one piece...my note 2
i wouldn't say it is the best for everyone
because as i have mentioned
it is more of your preference and usage
all phones are good in their own aspects and specs
do not worry reading about those whinners
just buy the original and if problems persist
go immediately to the store where you buy it
if the problem occured within the week from buying
if it is more than a week...go to service centers
hope these helps
Samsung skipped 4.2.2 update and release directly 4.3 and with 4.3 it receives the features of 4.2.2 or not???
AnonD-174099, 10 Aug 2013hey just change your charger cable dude.. i mean 4 pin cable comes with the package.. change i... moreso there is also a 5 pin cable for faster charging?
thanks for the tip man
Steve J, 04 Aug 2013The charging cable is faulty although the phone is only a few months old. I had to replace it ... morei dont know what happens to your note 2
i took pictures and videis with my note 2
also downloaded pictures and videos over the internet
but all of these i could transfer them on my mmc
the only thing i could not transfer are the pictures and videos that comes with the phone as they are samsung proprietary and those games and applications i downloaded on the appstore because you need to have your phone rooted
my phone is not a rooted one to save its warranty
hope these helps
AnonD-173872, 09 Aug 2013It's Awesome phone to use........ When I bought it it take only 45 to 60 minuts to charge 0-1... morehey just change your charger cable dude.. i mean 4 pin cable comes with the package.. change it to 5 pin cable u can feel the change..it charge the phone much faster..try it :)
ES, 05 Aug 2013what the difference between the Korean or Vietnamese version for the note 2 ??
hey i thought that the battle or confusion on which phone to buy between note2 and its rivals are over...
i don't bother looking at those phones...haha
just so you know i've had my note 2 last year... and it works well with me
so if you are trying to save your mind thinking which to buy... go for note 2
i have my officemates having those competitors... but everytime they took their phones and compare them with my note, they cannot just brag... because in any aspect they found that my note 2 is better
if your note 2 is the one assembled in vietnam, then congratulations...mine is the same... and if it is from korea, you don't need to worry... but i just don't know their difference... and i think there is none so long as you buy the international version
and lastly, for those people who keeps whining about the problems they incurred with their note 2... may i ask? what have you done to your phone?
