This is great news that the SGN2 is in the market now and many proud users are already using it. I just wanted some information from the users who already recieved their device, based on their ~1 week or so of usage:
1. How is the battery standing up. both on heavy usage / on low usage?
2. How is the performance of the phone? Did it ever hang up, did it ever appear to be slow?
3. Has the s-pen turned out ot be a useful tool, or are you using it just for some fun activities on the new proud posession?
Your feedback would be highly appreciated and it will be very useful for all us Samsung fans.

Not at all. Even more in JB, which is already buttery smooth on a device like Galaxy Nexus. Basically I say, Note 2 is a larger, more features version of S3 (and more ram of course). Screen wise, I can't speak to that, since I never see it just yet. But I doubt it'll be better than the One X. But needless to say, I'm really interested of this phone :D
this phone is for rich people only. poor people like me can only dream about this phone. my phone nokia 1280 :)

I am using Note-2 from last 4 days now . eaisly I can feel it one of the best phone made by samsung. 1.7 quad core processor combined with a 2gb ram is excellent. on using it for 1st time u will notice d device is smooth and faster thn any other phone aviable in market now. Note2 bit bigger thn note1 but amazingly its feel handy and smaller then note1. download speed u get on this device is awesome & v.fast. battery life is amazingly v.good .S-PEN IS amazing and big plus point of dis note2. one problem whn u touch the phone u can feel the plastics quality is v.poor and it don't give u feel of expensive phone Samsung should work on their built quality now atlest.
Iv had the s2,the s3 and getting greedy,i picked up the note 2 as well. I was quite wary of the size,but let me tell you this,once you start using it,its difficult to go back even to handsets like the s3. The handset keeps getting brickbats for being too plasticky.this coming from people who havent once used the handset and keep recycling others reviews. It feels like a giant pebble,its ergonomic and yes,it does fit into ur trousers without any hassles. The pjone is blazing fast,and i mean,in comparison to the s3 as well. Scrolling with jb is a dream,especially on a screen this size.i dont what the purported battery life is,but after the first complete drained and full charge,this is the first handset where im struggling to drain the battery to recharge it again.this despite not using the power saving mode,playing games like nova 3 on 90% brightness,got 3 email accounts synced, i stream music from youtube on my playlists when im travelling to and from work,constantly using the browser,got my fb updates constantly on as well. As i type this,my phones battery is still stuck at 21% after almist 24 hours of constant use.this is the first time iv been impressed by any smartphones battery life. My friend,who's a diehard apple fanboy,cant stop toying with this handset as well and even though he wont admit it, its clearly written all over his face. He's mighty impressed , and how. The Spen for me right now,is just a party trick,i dont really know what to do with it.its good,but i havent found much use for it right now.mebbe will later once the requisite apps are available later. The only spot where the s3 rules supreme, is its screen. For comparisons sake,my friend and I lined up my s3 and note 2,along with the iphone 5,and streamed big bug bunny ,a 1080p animation video from youtube along withe avengers hd trailer, the s3 wins hands down.the note 2 falls slightly short of the crispness that the s3 and the iphone 5 had.however, even my friend admitted,that the videos looked much better on the s3. That said, spec sheets are one thing,and real life performance is completely different. Having used 4 droid flagships till now, this note2 sure takes the cake.and yes,my friend ,the apple torch bearer, is using my s3 now,just to see what the android experience is like. And i know what that means.he's mighty impressed and wouldnt admit it. As i finish this review,my battery indicator is at 20%.
I checked with Samsung stores at Bangalore ,....they said will be available in the showrooms from Monday 8th Oct onwards.....just wanna try it before buying it
P, 04 Oct 2012Hi, This is great news that the SGN2 is in the market now and many proud users are already ... moreBattery is amazing even after heavy usage from calls to music to emails and browsing. The speed is amazing I can't imagine any phone to be any faster. The pen is a new gadget for me but when you get the phone as you pull the pen out it will show you automatically all the icons which you can use the pen for, amazing phone in the sense that it adjusts its applications to the mode you are using the phone in. Very simple to use and automatically personifies the phone to ones use.
Got this baby a couple of days ago and it is amazing and flawless. From the software to the feel of the pone. I had the galaxy 3 and if one thinks they are the same one will be very mistaken. Also had the first galaxy note seems ancient compared the the note 2. After the galaxy 3 bought the lumia 900 to try out the windows 7.5 .moriginally loved the interface and software but there so many bugs like phone not charging when battery drains,freezing of screen and a huge lad itf one is a Facebook messenger and whatsapp user. Was going to buy the lumia 920. After opting to the note 2 I can say it is the perfect phone. Just perfect. It's size is absolutely not an issue I actually welcome it as I have big hands and makes my typing easier.

I've been an iphone user for quite some time now and still love the IOS. Got a chance to play with the new iphone 5 recently, feels good in the hand and very responsive, It just does what it's supposed to do and very efficiently aswell but the only thing is that the user experience is just getting a tad boring,
Finally spent half an hour with the note II yesterday and I must say I was surprisingly impressed. It was so refreshing after being with the Iphone for so many years.
Note II is super smooth ( yeah coming from an iphone guy ) and felt much more livelier, My only concern is that I use a macbook, apple tv at home. Can some one tell me how tough is it to sync photos & music from mac to android and is it a smooth process.
Demetrius, 03 Oct 2012Does it support Notification light for Missed Calls and Received SMS/Emails etc, etc ?Yes it does, same as Galaxy SIII.
