I recently sold my Note 2 and purchased iPhone 5. I hope this explain you which one is better. Both the Os's have apps, games etc but the THING Android sucks at is battery.
I sold my 4S and upgrade to Note II considering that massive 3100mah battery will last a day for a traveler like me, but it was completely opposite.
I have tried custom roms, stock deodexed roms, custom kernels, removed all bloatwares from Samsung douchwiz, but still it didn't last a day for me. Average screen time was 5-6 hours on Note II which would be the best if you compare it with SGS2, SGS3 and HOX.
Compare the same with iPhone 5, right now my battery is 56% with screen time of 5hours 43mins, 15 hours standby. It gonna last more than a day.
Same apps, same social bunch of apps like facebook, whatsapp, twitter, instagram which I installed in Note II.
Now, decide yourself. Either enjoy massive screen, huge custom roms, customizations, custom kernels, tons of launchers and suck battery life for 10-15 hours.
OR enjoy closed OS, no customization, no different launchers, no jailbreak (iPhone 5/iOS6), amazing battery life of 1-2 DAYS.
Make your choice!
Kaka, 04 Jan 2013in Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100, can I used my external drive memory?You can use an external hard drive or flash drive by using an adapter (micro USB male to regular USB female) to connect the hard drive/flash drive to the micro USB socket of the Note 2. This lets you read files or play video direct from the external drive without have to transfer the file into the phone.
updated my note to 4.1.2.
phone is on charge from 6 hours still charging,showing battery.80%
80% in 6 hours.samsung do something
Hi I notice that there is a hissing noise from the SGN 2 charger after a while. Is this normal? I am using the orignal charger that came with the phone with a UK plug clip in the UK. Just concerned that it does not screw up the phone.
