The contrast ratio specified has got to be wrong.. how can it be as low as 402 for a super AMOLED display ? please recheck.

Damitel , 24 Feb 2013Was fortunate to see s3 and note 2 in a show room in a phonestore, 306ppi on s3 was not better... moreActually, I can't hardly tell the resolution so much between the S III and the Note II. They're both brilliant screens and are good for bright environments.
The best experience with the S Pen for writing is with Swiftkey. The new update just integrated the Flow function where you glide your finger or S Pen across the screen to encode words. It's better than the stock Samsung keyboard. They both get the words you want wrong at most 25% of the time. It learns the most common words and phrases you use over time.
If you rapidly want to encode words, I suggest you get a good bluetooth keyboard, preferably something that is full sized or it can be folded in the middle for better carrying and storage. There are smaller ones at the size of the Note II. I plan to get one of those for portability.
I also do suggest you download Polaris 4 from the Samsung App Store. It's a fair enough Microsoft Office replacement and it's free.
A bluetooth mouse can be also be connected with the Note II for productivity.
Mine 4.1.2 but alwiz hang. Need to take out battery and put it back. Why is that happen. Plz help..
Was fortunate to see s3 and note 2 in a show room in a phonestore, 306ppi on s3 was not better than 267ppi on note 2 , note 2 was amazing. Still want to know if i can through the features of spen use it in writing my books. Need reply from experience users. Thanks all to note 2 lovers and above all samsung users.
I've went ahead & updated to the official N7100 firmware 4.1.2 (February - DXDLK5 for Philippines) and ran a root.
Ok, the plan was to experiment on some custom ROMs if power efficiency was a big problem. Seems stable for now as it's running as it did before - somehow. I just lost 10% power in am hour's worth of surfing and uploading via wifi.
I'm tempted to try out some of the lighter ROMs for a change but would lose Touchwiz functions like multi-view and Smart Stay.
kakerot, 24 Feb 2013which one is better ...note 2 or lumia 920.....?You have to choice samsung note 2 because of its processor,memory,android,batery back up,2ndry camera & gps power..
