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.
how it have al flash player and adbe sayed is no flash player for androied 4.1
I think this upcoming nt2 will break the record again 4 d season, i want to ask you guys if any of you knw the price of this phone in d UK.
Guys check this out!!!
5-In addition to the interface at times beeing laggy the RAM management is awfull,it actively uses just 800MB of it,which is absolutely not enough,not lesser than 2GB of RAM is a must besides better management.
I had the Note I,sold it after using it for over 8 months after bricking it with EMMC bug while installing a custom ROM from XDA,why I was insalling a custom ROM? because:
1-I was very much frusterated with the stock Contacts application,sometimes would take as long as 7 seconds to open!.
2-camera not so consistantly good all the time,although I have couple of very good digital cameras at home but still like to take as many photos whith my phone.
3-Too many bloathware in the TW,making the whole UI unpredictably slow.
4-Samsung is very slow in delivering updates,and during my 8 month usage not a single update came with a previous bug fixes!.
I am 90% getting the next Iphone specially after the rumors that it is coming with a 12 MP camera,however will consider getting the Note II if the above deficiencies are fully met and remedied since the experiance with a 5.+ inch handset is awsome.
Anon, 15 Aug 2012For the overexcited guy who is so disappointed that the camera is only 8 MP instead of 12, or ... moreAgree that higher mp doesnt help to make the photo better. 8MP in the cellphone is optimum alrd.
i cant belive ..im in uae and in some website i see they have note 2 in stock for 3000 AED

Camera is disappointing Compared to the other and other important thing is bettary to at least 5000 mah
The thing is if they dont include exynos 5250 i say its not worth it..... It would be just gs3 size increased... Os and programs can be added but AP is different. Long as there is high tech chip, programs and OS can be added plus why do u need 13 mp camera. Are you going to take a picture of criminal and give it policeman or you gonna take picture of sexy girl walking by?
