With its 3100 mah battery it will never fail you. It easily stand up to 3 days of normal usage and 2 days heavy. The display is absolutely stunning and feels very comfortable with 5.5inch and 16:9 format for medias playing.the camera is the most amazing one on a phone and the colors are stunning. This device is more than a gadget it's a tool of productivity and creativity. You will be so much attached with it that you won't be able to get back to a less than 5inch screen without shouting at it and having sucide temptations ;-) you won't be disappointed. And with the 2gram and 1.7ghz quadcore processor it will never lag. I tried to open 18 videos simultaneously with pop op play no lag at all. The best smartphone on the market right now.
im thinking of this phone as my 2013 phone, and i wish not to make anymore mistakes. my very first android phone was a sony xperia x8, which was a horrible experience. then later i made a switch to the xperia mini pro thinking it will be a major performance boost, but ho, once more, sony failed me terribly. but i thought nevermind that, it's just the 2011 xperia line that failed me. then, just recently a few months back i upgraded to the xperia SL, thinking the 2012 line will be better than the previous 2. yeah it is significantly better. but the battery life totally fails me (not just this one, all THREE XPERIAS TOO) . boring UI, same trash apps, camera isn't that sharp thought it sports a 12MP shooter, hardware is just as bad and software department failed as well. very bad, sony. and i will never trust a sony again. so i need help from u guys out there to answer a few simple questions.
how is the :
-battery life on heavy usage (eg, gaming, web browsing, watching youtube)
-performance, will it lag while multitasking?
-camera quality, low-light and bright conditions
-screen, is it bright? are the colors just right or very saturated
additional notes: i primarily use my phone for gaming, web browsing, and texting 24/7. listening to music too sometimes. so im pretty heavy on my phone.
thanks in advance =)

Its easy to think that "a cable is a cable" and you may think that the charger will not know the difference, i used to think so too but then i came across this Sony charger with a boost charging, an that boost charging worked only with the original Sony cable.
Go back to your original, and unfortunately somewhat short, Note 2 USB cable and your charging times will be twice as fast.

it doesn't matter what is the kind of the cable

My note 2 charges in a bit under 3 hours which is still really quick. If i use the old note or s2 charger its more like 5 hours.
I started using this amazing stuff past a week...its absoloutely fab....1000's of options and applications...donnow words to explain...its cent percent user friendly and money worth !!!!

Go buy another cable if at all the previous one is damaged cause using damaged cable or diffrent cable can cause damage to our precious phone and costly battery. My phone takes approx 50 mins to charge from 0 % to 100%. Its that fast and that is one of the reasons i like note 2 a lot .enjoy...!
