svenniboy, 12 Jul 2013Note II or S4???it depends on u. s4 is expected to be better as it came out later to note 2. but take it from me note 2 will remain a boss phone for atleast 3 more years. u will see no difference, unless u care for a increment in camera strength. the display is bigger in note 2. and smartphones r more than saturated at 720p, 1080p of s4 is more like a marketing attraction.u do not have s pen in the s4. yes if u r talking about a pocketeable one that changes things. but i had prefer something bigger like the note. and do not be too allured to the octa cores, four of them r low power run cores, only four runs efficiently. hell, who needs an octa core on a smartphone.4 cores r enough to storm even a pc. i gave u stats. now it is up to u.
Bunyip22, 13 Jul 20131) White is more likely to get dirty. 2) As the note is so big white makes it even more obvio... moreNot at all, I have titanium gray and white as well, but believe me white one is more brighter than gray. Gray is made by Korea and white is made by Vietnam, may be that is the difference. Also gray one I purchased in October last year and white one I purchased yesterday and it is manufactured in April 2013 and have sane chip means non SDS issue as I tested it with a software but gray one having insane chip but still working very good. And white one is not girlish at all, I am sure anyone who has gray one will prefer gray. You can put a dark case on white as I putted on my white note 2 and it look really sexy. I am really enjoying both note 2s, I skipped s4 and bought another note because it is cheap now. My 4 years baby playing with gray one real racing 3 hacked unlimited money huge BMW and other cars unlocked. On big screen tv attached with HDMI cable. And lots more. Hehehe...
Of course a good instrument with good technical specifications and rich screen quality. Amazing screen and audio output for games and videos too. Through 3g speed browsing is very much comfortable especially youtube.
I am using this instrument for the last 8 months. But the problem I am facing is that some times my instrument is getting hang. This is happening when I am making a call. The call will be disconnected and the screen will be hanged for few seconds. This is happening once in an while.
But how to fix this problem.
Don, 13 Jul 2013why do you think titanium grey is the best colour?1) White is more likely to get dirty.
2) As the note is so big white makes it even more obvious
3) White is for girls.
4) Grey is cool!
.... the last 2 are getting a bit technical...
pet, 12 Jul 2013Titanium graywhy do you think titanium grey is the best colour?
i have a problem with the screen, its flickering like a neon light, i read somewhere its a battery problem, can anyone confirm
omegared, 11 Jul 2013Choose S4 note 2 it's too big and now older than the S4thankyou.
Note 2 is by far the best phone I've ever owned. Size of the screen is just nice for browsing the web and playing games. It's not too big and not too small. Its speed as well as long battery life adds support to my praise for the phone. I don't think I will change to another phone for the next few years because of this. Anyway, why is there a need to change phones every now and then just so as to keep up with the latest technology? What matters is self contented.

I had rooted my phone a couple of months ago using odin.
I cant see Philippine vanilla firmware from SamMobile. I can only see XTE, Globe, SMART & SUN.
nakama1925, 11 Jul 2013Hi TheNeighbor. You are also from the Philippines right? Can you share what firmware you are... moreAny official firmware is Ok. The original was UAE one, but I loaded the Philippine vanilla firmware from SamMobile.com and rooted using High On Android's guide. Look for his YouTube guide and link to his site. You need to be careful and know what you're doing while doing all this. It took me a month's time in learning what other people have done before executing the actual modifications. You're responsible if your unit bricks from mistakes.
My Samsung Note II is at most 3 months old. I keep it in a Samsung case. I dropped it (it was in the case) about 3 feet and the front shattered. It will cost $329.00 to fix my almost $800.00 phone. I am instead going to replace it with something other than a Samsung. As easily as this one broke I do not want to take a chance on another breakage.
Princess, 09 Jul 2013what is the best colour for samsung galaxsy note 2?Titanium gray
Using one for 5 months now.
Screen might sound large but it's somewhat taller than wider and fits nicely in hand. Doesn't fit so nicely in pockets (fits barely and it is noticeable).
+ beautiful screen, 720p is great
+ it's very fast, no hiccups in the UI, handles everything I threw at it
+ S-Pen is fun for writing notes and then OCR them, also fun to write anything (like SMS) and have it recognized (as long as it's in English)
+ great call quality, especially over 4G
- battery drains faster and faster. Initially I could use it with 4G and GPS and BT for about 2 days. Two months later it won't pass the day without recharge for same usage (probably updates & push notifications apps - but as I don't use twitter/fb, I find it weird)
- despite fun, S-Pen is not as useful as it could be.
- Samsung doesn't seem willing to push Android beyond 4.1 and custom ROMs will remove the S-Pen utilities.
