the specs mentioned above are not 100% true. Wait for the official announcement of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Aug 29th at Berlin....
greg, 24 Aug 2012I hope it is the same quad core as the s3 but some reports say dual-core Exynos 5250 chipset..... morethe dual core 5250 will be day and night more powerful than the quad core so dont worry! Itll be based on ARMS A15 chips instead of the old A9 chips that are currently in all samsung phones. We can only hope it uses the 5250, itll probably be the first phone with a noticeable difference in power and speed
northcorean, 23 Aug 2012According to samsung they said "we expect to sell more of galaxy s3" which give us i... moreif the exynos 5250 wouldn't come with galaxy note 2 because nobody buy sgs3 seems a little unrealistic.... because the note and galaxy s series both have their own group of customers and also LG HTC all are preparing quad core snapdragon s4 pro chipset in their future phones coming probably in the Q4 of 2012,if samsung do not introduce more powerful phone than them ,actually they will loose their customers...(as all of us know that dual core snapdragon s4s has approximately same processing power as all quad cores of ARM A9 CPUs)...
I was going through all the comments. I accept many of them. If Sammy wants to attract original note customers,it must upgrade it's note 2. I believe it should be better than the s3.
All the last flagships of galaxy series like s2,note,s3 have a 8mp camera. Its time to raise the megapixels. Please make it 12. I-phone5 is said to have 12mp and a front facing hd camera.
The battery should be atleast 3000 mah. I prefer a retina display over the pentile display. The resolution should increase with atleast 330ppi.
Exonys 5250 should come in place of 4412 of s3.
Ram needs to be increased from 1gigs to 1.5 or 2gigs. Ice-cream sandwitch is now old. Sammy should introduce Jelly Bean. Besides, the Nexus has already come out with Jelly Bean Os.
And for God Sake please dont come out with the wierd roundish shape of s3. The shape of the original Note/S 2 wad good enough.
These are some of the possible things which Samsung should consider in the Note 2.
I personally am waiting for the Galaxy Note 2. But I dont know why,i think that this year apple's iphone 5 may just be a step ahead of Note 2.
I am planning to buy a phone,i'l be considering Galaxy note 2 and Iphone5. Just waiting for August 29 eagerly and then September 12(iphone5's announcement).
I hope it is the same quad core as the s3 but some reports say dual-core Exynos 5250 chipset.... ???
Its specification seems almost same as Samsung Galaxy S III accept cpu,ram,camera and also its big screen.But i'm game for it, looking forward to buy and what better you can expect then this.
There are always critic craving for more with less knowledge or they themself not sure of utilising all the features.It is always first said that before buying a mobile look at your budget and then your usage and expectation.People who really like big screen and look forward for this features as mentioned in specification should go for it without any thought. Happy buying....Regards, Just dial :- )
If there is no Wolfson Audio Chip, then cannot buy. So, i am hoping.
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2012Do you want to spend 10+ hours to charge your phone?! I'm sure nobody wants to. 3000~3500mah i... moreThe bigger the battery, the better. It adds convenience. You don't have to always charge it to full.
arroid, 23 Aug 2012hey guys,is there a chance the galaxy note 2 to come with exynos 5250??? According to samsung they said "we expect to sell more of galaxy s3" which give us idea that it would most likely be same application processor 4412.. My guess is no one will buy gs3 if new high tech phone come out we probably have to wait for galaxy s4 or galaxy note 3 for 5250 or quad core version of 5250 to be included
SpEaKeRb0xXx, 23 Aug 2012i feel sorry if you brick your note. you should have read the precautions and things to avoid ... moreIt has nothing to do with the instructions the EMMC bug should not be there in first place and period,since everytime you wipe the device you are pron to bricking it.Since I was not alone even many very famous Developers at the XDA bricked their phones,so why not give them the same advice.
I have tried them all the fastest being the Imilka and cleanNote had the same problems + Spen inconsistency.
The contacts is laggy not just after booting but whenever the RAM is full it is aotomaticaly removed from the memory,just try to open the browser and close back again and open the Contacts afterwards you will see that it will take forever to open => Bad RAM management.My HD2 with antiquated WM and 480 MB of RAM does it immedeately in every situation!!.
hey guys,is there a chance the galaxy note 2 to come with exynos 5250???
sam, 22 Aug 2012It says in the specifications that it's Exynos 5250, not the 4412They always change at last minute i know you dont want to believe that they installed 4412 instead of 5250
AnonD-57013, 22 Aug 2012I had the Note I,sold it after using it for over 8 months after bricking it with EMMC bug whil... morei feel sorry if you brick your note. you should have read the precautions and things to avoid before installing a custom ROM esp if you already updated your phone in ICS.
1 - the reason why it is slow the first time you open your contacts after a boot up is because the handset is gathering all the info on your note. Second time you open it, its way much faster than the first.
2 - i wonder if you manage to try criskelo rom.. ICS camera in criskelo rom is quite good. i like it more than the default camera. But i have to say the camera needed more tweaks coz the auto focus is not that good in gnote.
3 - that is the reason why we install custom ROM. To remove bloatwares/unnecessary appliations. You can find all sammy craps/bloatwares almost on every sammy handsets, not just the note.
4 - i believe the slowest giving updates is Sony. The more sophisticated your handset is, the harder it is to solve bugs. My Gnote is from HongKong i had my note since November last year, i receive 3 updates dated January, April for some bug fixes and the latest update wc ICS. Tho that is the last time i update my gnote coz im already using a custom rom.
- your seller code plays a major role in receiving updates.
5 - i agree, must have a higher RAM and better management.
