Im mightily confused between Z, ZL, & Note 2. I'm bit worried about problems in Z like overheating, earpiece malfunction etc while note 2 is a solid phone in this regard. But note 2 is using a dated cpu and gpu comparing to Z n ZL. Also each phone is having. unique advantages like water proofing, IR blaster and superb battery(n2).But i can trade in waterproofing and ir blaster anyday if battery life is what I'm getting in return. So it comes down to better battery life of n2 or better gaming performance of z & zL(as cpu benchmarks are acceptable for both z and N2). Pricing of al three devices are around 30k or 500$ so its never a concern. Also i really don't care about camera or how much ppi the screen is pushing out. Please help me come out of this terrible dilemma
The phone is fantastic. S Pen works as advertised.
I brought this phone after lot of research now very satisfied.
I bought this device one month back. It is a very good phone I have seen. The OTG was working fine. Recently after updating the software it is not recognizing the OTG device. Anybody is facing this problem? what is the solution?
Well i had note1 so when i had to choose between ip4s, note2, s4, i did a great research, and finally settled on note 2 as it has got good bench mark scores and great versatility. Another point was out 37K, i got a disc of 10K .
At first before using it i was afraid i have ultimately bought another note, although note 1 was good, battery life was so bad, never lasted more than evening and then i had to look for a charging point. But my fear was overruled when i started using note 2, and battery life was simply awesome, with moderate use of 1 hr calling and 1 hr of gaming , net on when req, it lasted for three days , even i had to use app juice extractor for finish battery from last 5 % which were seemingly very difficult to finish.
Speed have increased vastly, batman (Approx 2 gb) runs very smoothly.
when we buy an expensive phone , we need a lot of functions, but battery eats expectations.
well here for the first time after leaving nokia N8 4 yrs back , i got a good battery of 3 days for me, others can manage upto 2 days depending on usage.
SO it is a winner phone by samsung,even when compared to IP5, which my friends carry , does not stand till night.

I've already use note II for several months and it was just fine. It responsed fast enough, no lag problems. Until yesterday when I left it on the table in idle status and I found my note display show "galaxy note II..." and won't response anymore to any action. and then I read reviews and discussion in the internet and I just realize that it was not only me who had the same problem. There were several users that had the same problem. Maybe that's the device weakness.
If you are confused between note series and any other android series.
Note2 (if note3 is not yet launched) is the best phone so far.
In love with battery backup.
I've literally raped this phone by putting damn heavy apps, but this phone is just too awesome.
If you can, you should buy this.
Better than htc for sure.
peter, 26 Jul 2013Well you can use avast its good one it also got anti-theft feature is free I find Cerberus an even better anti-theft app. I set it to take pictures of somebody tries a wrong pin code and to email it to a designated account. You can totally remote the unit via sms and reports to you the sim card's cell number the thief is using at every change.
Which cover will be the best one for protection of note 2 ? Plz anyone reply as soon as possible. Flip cover or jelly case or anything else....

Human, 24 Jul 2013You ever had burn in issue in your note 2?I'd be lying if I said no. I keep my screen brightness at 20 to 30%. I got the first Galaxy Note which is now with my wife. That had burn-ins when you tune down the screen with a screen filter app. You don't notice them without the filter. I have the Note II for over 6 months, and the screen is still brilliant. I'd rather have an OLED screen than even the color-shifty full HD screen like in the Xperia Z.
zee67, 24 Jul 2013Hi Guys I own a Note 2 for the past 8 months now Best phone i have ever used. Simply superb... morePls what color did you buy? The peeling off of silver panel, is it happening in both the Titanium grey and the white or is it peculiar to a particular colour?
