Anonymous, 07 Oct 2012Has anyone who owns the galaxy note 2 received the new update. Mine still has not and I am in dubai.The update isn't yet available for middle east as the fimrware released doesn't support arabic thus it's only in some places in Europe... we should see it coming to the region soon, similar to the sequence of the roll out of the phone itself
The big sticking point is the size but I don't really see this as an issue. This phone delivers a totally different experience and with the pen integration it really does allow your phone to be something of an all round media device. I was going to get a Google nexus tablet but I can't justify it now I have this phone as there isn't much difference.
The phone is fast and the battery is quite good considering the size although if you're hammering games like I am all day at the mo expect a mid day charge.
If you're upgrading from a smartphone from a couple of years ago this phone brings a whole new experience. Just wish I could have stock Jelly bean without the Samsung overlay but that's a minor grumble.
ahmad, 08 Oct 2012All those lucky fellows using note 2......can any body tell that can we install the apps n app... moreAs far as i can tell it's phone memory. I have 16 GB with 32 GB card and everything has gone to phone memory. Still figuring out how to transfer but no luck yet/ only had it a few days.
In terms of being an all-in-one device (which i'm a BIG fan of) , without a doubt it's way better than other products ; but there is a problem , its sheer size hardly let it to be called a phone n obviously it's not even near to be a tablet ...
To my mind it's a big confusion for many people (who by the way prefer iPhone5 , S-III or 808 to this) ...
after 2 days of using note 2, i realized that this is the fone that i want. huge screen yet handy, very fast and smooth motion of screen, strong battery and fast charging. my eyes are not irritated with the brightness of the screen, unlike GS2. b4 i have GS2 and GTab 7.7, wherein the GTab 7.7, i cant put in on my pocket. right now i only have 1 fone, GNote 2, i can put it on my pocket anywhere i go. my best fone ever. handy yet very huge and powerful fone!
ahmad, 08 Oct 2012All those lucky fellows using note 2......can any body tell that can we install the apps n app... moreMine arrives tomorrow but i assume its the same as the note. Most smaller apps go to the phone memory, big apps go to the SD card and you can move most apps to the SD card if you want.
I was hoping for a 32gb phone but ended up getting 16GB plus a 64GB card for $60.
All those lucky fellows using note 2......can any body tell that can we install the apps n app data on memory card or it is all installed in phone memory.....waiting for reply. Thanks
The best one there is!
Only flaw is from accessing java and active x based servers needs the page to be refreshed to maximize the full view.
Nevertheless, a very awesome device indeed! You won't regret it. Left my iPad for my kids to play at home.
Samsung, please make your flip covers available in the market now.
AnonD-8543, 07 Oct 2012Wat features i find most appealing about Note 2 are. 1) extremely powerful proc. 2)2 gb ram.... moreThx for the review..will surely up upgade to Note2 b cuz of the 2gb of ram..:-)
A smartphone has got to be smart in its functions for users to enjoy using. This is seen in the Note 2.
The NOTE 2 is now the number one device on the daily interest chart (8/10/12).
This is ahead of the S3, Vu and Iphone 5 which is a great effort.
I think the sales from this device will blow everyone away and force all competitors to enter the 5"+ market in a real hurry :-)
Taurus, 07 Oct 2012Samsung Galaxy Note & Note 2 are the Best!!!The galaxy note is good, the Note 2 is AMAZING....
Mine arrives tomorrow :-)
BAD NEWS... Samsung announced that 32GB / 64GB variant of Galaxy Note 2 is not planned and won't be exist.
