More powerful capabilities than i thought and pointless to own a tablet when u have one of these. Don't be fooled by the drop tests as the back does not come off that easily as it's clipped-in. A follow-up (second) drop would have it fall off if the user didn't put it back on properly. Those of us who own the phone know what I mean. The quality is very tight and sleek considering the size of the phone. Very impressive. Check out the many youtube video's of people turning these into full out computers and samsung's own tutorials before listening to non-sense being posted by slighted Blackberry and Apple iPhone users. I used to be a blackberry user. This phone far out exceeds my needs whereas my blackberry 9900 lacked, and iphone5 felt like a cheap attempt at what i thought it could've been.
I've dropped my Note 2 plentiful times and none of that happened. If this was an iPhone, your glass will be shattered.
The Note 2 is a lot more than a smartphone. Its quite possible to replace your laptop with this.
The screensize is huge, while still being confortable to stash in a trouser pocket. Its quite comfortable to make calls with, although it does attract attention where a smaller phone would not.
The biggest advantage is undoubtably Android OS. Its flexible, quick, highly customizable and has a ton of free and paid apps - also surprisingly easy to create apps for it if you have the drive to learn how and some time to put on it.
The battery being removable is a huge perk. Buy a spare and a charger and your set. Such a huge, bright screen does eats power - unless the cpu is going full tilt all the time the screen can easily be responsible for consuming 75% of the battery power.
The coolest feature is splitscreen and only the Note 2 and true tablets have the screen size to pull it off, however samsung then shoots themselves in the foot. Only a small list of basic apps can be splitscreened without rooting and custom software.
The Note 2 has replaced my laptop for pretty much everything. Being able to scribble out my text rather than typing it is very handy, as is tye spen for precision tapping. Infinitely better than trackballs or touchpad mouses.
If you just want a phone with internet capability and some games, look elsewhere. If you want a pocketsize laptop with great extras and potential, it doesn't get any better than the Note 2.
But your friend just put back the battery and back-cover on the phone and restarted it as Note II was actually undamaged?!
today my colleague coinccedentally drop his phone on the floor and guess what the back of the cover was all over and the battery was very far. Poor quality from Samsung and now I can tell that Samsung its all plastic material.
