I just got this beast a week before.Previous mobile HTC one X plus,S3,Iphone5.Iphone4s
Planned to go for S4 but turn back to Note 2 reason S4 started with price 41,500 but today 39,000 in weeks so might be in months it may comes to 35,000 hope so.
Reviews about Note 2 a week of usage
Battery is best heavy usage 1.5days normal usage 2.5days todays busy life battery is very much important there are many smart mobile in market but no use of battery backup.
It can open any apps or HD games flawlessly because of 2gb ram 1.6quadcore so there is no problem of future firmware updates like key lime pie.
At first it was to big for me 5.5inch screen but later it became very compact and comfortable past one week never touched my laptop :)
SPEN mind blowing.
Friends my suggestion go for this beast compare to S4 Just think about daily usage battery,screen size,good hardware and pricing.
People who get heating issue just restart your mobile or flash your firmware the problem get solved.
HTC brands you won't get software updates as like samsung and samsung is very friendly user.
Compare to any smartphone in todays market this beast has hardware,display,price and very important BATTERY were other devices lack.
[deleted post]Just wait a year after initial release and the price will drop to more reasonable levels! It is always too expensive to have the latest model!
[deleted post]Seriously?? Do you tell Ferrari the same thing? Maybe you should look at Toyota, Nissan etc if you can't afford a Ferrari.
Maybe instead of the SGS4 you should look at the Nexus 4. Not as good but still a good phone for a fair bit less.
The price of high end smart phones has never been lower and the margins have never been smaller (just ask apple).
PS The other option is to study, work hard and get a job that pays more.
this is the last time i buy a samsung phone...why!?because they always look good on paper with all the specs but real life experience is a joke...the worst 650e i spent...don't get me wrong,i like the phone,i love the huge screen and the good battery life but i'm sick and tired of the freakin' freezes and crashings and stuttering and did i mention ...the lag!!!wt...f!!! quadcore with jellybean and lags...a lot...i bought it because it best suited me for my work and also for my free time but instead of being the helpful device i needed and wanted i'm dissapointed..to say the least...and i also rooted and instaled custom roms so i know what to do with android...maybe is my particular case but i don't think that i'm the only one complaining...i love phablets...ever since dell streak 5(what a great device that was but in the wrong time period)...i like android for all the possibilities...but come on samsung,you charge a leg for this!? i had the galaxy s,s2,s3 now this but no more for me...i previously owned htc's and i regret now the experience that i had on those devices with the only shortcoming being battery life,but in real life usage they were great...i don't hate samsung or love htc or sony but it is not normal for this things to repeat with each model they put on sale...they should stop with the crappy touchwiz and all the gimmicks and focus on the experience..i mean i have smart stay and guess what?it's not working,for me atleast..it has a pen that i never use..and the so called great camera it's just crap(using sony camera modules explains it..previously owned xperia arc s and camera was crap so...)im not seing don't buy this but it's better if you have a chance to test it..maybe it's not what you are expecting,just like in my case..i expected a lot and got in return almost nothing...so my next phone will be a non-samsung device..sorry but i think that htc is better than this..for me at least...there are a lot of things that i like but also to many that i hate...to bad..this phone could've been really good but for me it's not...
