For those who would like to disguise their Note II, I made a better version for the smaller planner and here is the video link:
The new version integrates the old S Pen with the pen holder accessory and a top and bottom thin elastic string to hold both into place. The cut was designed to make them fit exactly and snugged into place. I didn't glue the top and bottom pages to allow charging and wired earphones to connect. The S Pen will be useful and will give the illusion that you are just jotting something down when you need to use the Note II.
It took me a bit of thinking and twice more labor for the exact cutting as I needed to make a template, pencil the cut edges every 3 to 4 pages at a time, referencing from the outer corner.
While others are showing off the device, I'm actually hiding this. For more information how to build one, head over to the XDA forum thread:

som, 08 Feb 2013my usage after yesterday's 36.13mb.. after 100% charge: screen time on: 2h 22m 15s, voice call... moreThat's still a steep battery drain there, although the gaming could have done the draining.
I've tried some scenarios with my rooted Note II on One Battery Guard and with continuous downloading torrents at 100kbps (with full cpu at 1600mhz), I only get close to 9% drain per hour; with power save mode (limited to 1200mhz cpu), I only get 7% drain per hour with the same setup.
Normal browsing gives me somewhere 16 to 20 hours daily with half the time with screen on.
I can strongly advise that you don't update to this 4.1.2. It only has a few minor features like ink blotch, TW toggle icons arrangements - and the only major thing that is affecting the Note II is that battery drain as most are telling.

Finally, my SGN2 got its Canadian update. It now has its multi view feature. Truly amazing!
It needs to have a better battery life.It also has a major speed problems when it comes to playing HD games.
