Everything is fine except I think not putting in Stereo Speakers was a mistake. A mono speaker isn't good enough for a tablet phone, especially one with such strong multimedia capabilities
I am happy to report that the Note II has exceeded my battery longevity expectations! To date, I've operated the device today with surfing occasionally over wifi and 3G for over 16 hours, downloaded 3 full ROMs for my rooting activities, connected to my smartwatch & wireless earpiece the entire time on bluetooth and it still has 20% to spare. I could roughly say it was some half the time idle while doing or traveling, listening to about 4 hours of music via bluetooth.
I would like to congratulate the Samsung team who improved on this hardware feat. I can now expect even better performance stamina to come when you start producing units with the new 8-cores processor.

AnonD-65243, 16 Jan 2013Mr right take a good decision switch to lumia I agree, at present I am using both Lumia 920 and Note 2, and honestly I prefer using Lumia more than Note 2.

AnonD-67893, 16 Jan 2013Hey parry it's not normal the battery issue after updating to 4.1.2, I just downgraded it to 4... moreNice, so you rooted the phone for downgrade. Well I am happy with the performance of my Note-2 and as for now I am not interested in rooting so let the 4.1.2 run as it is.
Fast, unique, incomparable to almost all phones. This is what i really call a smartphone.
I have had one for about 2months now and i think it's worth every bit of the charge.
But, I suggest that Samsung needs to slow down on new models. They come too rampant.
Secondly, pls stay off plastic and try something else. I'm a Samsung freak but i guess HTC compares greatly because of the material they use. I hate Apple products. The hype is bullshit and unrealistic.
Hey parry it's not normal the battery issue after updating to 4.1.2, I just downgraded it to 4.1.1 again. And I charged 100% battery before going to sleep and when I woke up after 7 hours the battery just 2 % decreased. Even I haven't installed any battery saving software. I think I'll not update to any other version as 4.1.1 rocks. It has strong wifi signal 2+ days of battery backup and most reliable. I think I will wait until 5.0.0..
So guys why update for small features if either the phone becomes buggy.
Now I can root the device and make it adfree :D and with a big relaxation of battery.

Dropbox 50GB is good for 2 years only. Sony give you 50GB space on Box, for life. I activated mine on a Sony Ericsson phone and now use it for my Note 2.
I have the same experience with the camera, its good when in good conditions, when less good conditions it does not try to make a good shot, very poor auto mode that does make an effort. They say Sony and S.E. phones are slow in autofocus, but thats because they actually make an effort trying to figure out how to make a good shot, of course Samsung can focus fast with such a simplified auto mode.
Then add the inefficient call log of Note 2 that takes minimum 4 taps to access from the homescreen on Note 2, while max 2 taps on other phones. Text messages must be omitted from the log by default, or at least make the setting sticky! So annoying to have to scroll through 100 text messages before getting to some last dialed numbers, i had handheld cellphones since 1993, since before GSM, but i never had a phone without a call log before. Call log must be calls only, and preferably with tabs: Received, Outgoing, Missed, and then Samsung could add a TEXT MESSAGES tab as well since they seem to love text message logs.

The charger of the Note II has a rating of 2 Amperes or 2A as indicated. The charger of the Note I has a rating of 1A. The higher the ampere, the faster the charging time. That's why you see 2A chargers for tabs for faster charging 5000mAh to 7000mAh internal batteries.
A .5 to .75A chargers can still work, but they would take longer or even twice the time. The PC USB slot provides a .5A rating and the manual says you can charge the Note II by plunging in your USB cable.
The only disadvantage which I have observed for higher ampere chargers is the battery seems to empty faster. This is for batteries after a few months of dispense.
Do not overcharge your battery as charging creates a chemical reaction that produces a sort of particles that degrade the retention of power supply. So there should be a balance of the right ampere and lesser time you plug in your unit. This will certainly prolong the battery cycle, which is an average of 500 cycles. Always expect that they will degrade to some 80% longevity after a few months. That's why it's ideal that you cycle at least 2 batteries to almost fully drain them before removing it to charge on the official charger.
Another way of looking at this practice is that you reduce the risk of your device being forgotten or stolen while charging outside home.
For really heavy users, charge the spent battery with the official charger powered by a portable power bank battery in your bag. Some power banks cuts power after detecting your battery is fully charged.
