This opportunity has nothing to do with my employment at Sprint. Any information obtained is obtained outside of my employment with Sprint.

Rules apply. Basically no pics, non disclosure etc etc

Ask away
I'm curious with what I saw in the commercial where they have apps that can edit photo's like the one with the cake and how they added a ribbon. Are all apps used in the commercial included with the phone?

Flagship actually means the 'top of the line' or best model a certain manufacturer produces.

"BMW's flagship is the 760 Li"

Personally, any Nexus device be it 4-5 or 7 inch version, to me is quite limited.
Yes, it may get updates much faster and are pure android, but other than that, it is in my opinion that not the best that android can offer. Each and every time a Nexus device is spit out, there are other devices that put it to shame.
More memory, sd card etc etc. And it doesn't matter who puts it out.

Then you get into the OS enhancements that some swear they dislike. Like Sense, Touchwiz etc, but there are certain enhancements/features that won't work it work if you strip away the Carrier or manufacturers enhancements such as S-Pen apps, 4G, etc.

Granted, I would like for the enhancements or add-ons to be separate thus allowing the user to remove them if they want without disabling the other functions.

But as it it now, no Nexus device can compete with the newer devices coming out.

@TS THANKS so much for your post over in the community forums. I'm beyond tired of seeing the same link that confirms nothing. People keep reposting it like it contains concrete info regarding an exact release date.

@Caloy I'd like to thank you for scaring the hell out of me.
I was reading your post and the eyes blinked on your avatar and I practically jumped across the other side of my bedroom.

Didn't Mr. Ed say he'd take pics for us? Even though we've seen others already, still would be nice to see the Sprint version.

Ok, finally, an article that actually shows proof of a date. The previous articles kept saying Oct 28, here we have an actual leak showing Oct 24th for T-Mobile. The others can't be too far behind (if not that same date). But with the event being held at 7PM, I wonder if it will be only web orders after that time.

Has Samsung or any other manufacturer ever done an announcement and launch on the same day before? If this is a first, it'll be another huge moment for Samsung.

Oh, wow, just saw the coolest thing ever while reading through my tweets. Samsung made an interactive app guide for Note 2 owners. Strangely enough, it actually isn't restricted to the note 2 cuz it said i could download on my photon, but wanted to share on here for those that have the note 1 and can verify if there are s-pen specific interactions that wouldn't work with a regular phone.

So I've just been presented with an interesting opportunity, and I would like to get some community feedback. A friend of mine keeps phones forever, and apparently he has accrued 3 upgrades. He used one recently to get a RAZR M (upgraded from an old feature phone) and has 2 left. I'm thinking of using one of his upgrades to get my Note II. I'm wondering if I should get it as soon as it comes out or wait a little because Samsung seems to like to stager features like color and internal storage. I had already resigned myself to getting the phone in Feb after my tax return arrives, so waiting won't be a killer. I am, however, drooling whenever I read a review. So what say you interwebz... pull the trigger on release day or bide my time waiting for additional options, root, leaked bootloader, etc.

Very good question considering the upgrade opportunity you have available to you.

hmmm lets see. If you are not going to root your device, then wait to get the higher storage versions. The issue is no one knows when those versions will be available if at all. It could be soon or as history has shown, much further down the line.

If you do root, then there is a script over at xda-developers that allows you to swap the internal storage (16) for the external one. Thus if you get a 64GB sdcard and do the script you basically have a 64 internal Note 2 at the 16 GB price. (Unless you want both 64 internal and 64 external, then the script wouldn't matter).

I know how you are feeling because i too would like to get the Note on day 1 but also want the 32 or 64 GB version. I also could wait but every review and video is killing me.

What does this script do with the internal storage? Is it usable?

Will definately root and mod (maybe not an AOSP rom, but definately something customized). That script sounds interesting, but I would be concerned about the IO latency. If all storage references are switched, then I would think that all file IO would suffer and cause the phone to lag. Do you have a link?

Does the LED light stay on when charging w/ red or orange for not fully charged and Green for charge complete, like htc? It's something I've missed from the evo, since I upgraded to the mopho last year.

I'm surprised none of the UK folks have answered yet. I'd like to know as well. And how the memory is partitioned.

what about audio quality on the GN2? I use my ipod touch to listen to music, but intend to switch to this once I get it.

There are a few of them over in xda that are actually for the Note 10.1 but I talked to the devs and they are working on a version for the Note 2. here and here

I really love that site, I love Aarons and Taylors reviews and posts. Aarons current 30 day Note II challenge is driving me nuts with all the good things he is saying about the Note II.

I've read reviews that said sound quality is phenomenal. I think louder than the GS3.
Gosh....how many days til the announcement now?

I saw on another forum some time ago someone had a countdown ticker (like a stock exchange ticker) on their phone and I could kick myself for forgotting to ask where he got it from. Haven't found anything like it in the market.

I'd be SO cool if Phandroid could post a countdown timer to the Note 2 announcement (Oct 24th) on the homepage. Now THAT would give us just a little more reason to salivate.

Pretty sure that wyndslash had made some comments before that she is somewhere in Korea. It was regarding the comments I made about how the phone looks ridiculously humongous...LOL. Of course, that wouldn't really make sense because it released in Korea first already, so not sure what she was referring to.

Even though I was reading a thread on XDA the other day talking about how a screen protector could be "bad" for the Note 2, I couldn't resist and pre-ordered...LOL:

Will the "gaming" sell be the same for all the providers or just T-Mo

I hope that, if they do, Sprint offers NBA 2K13 because of their exclusive contract with the NBA...LOL.

What were the reasons that it would be bad? I just ordered the screen protectors and a few cases so I am all set for buying it ASAP! I'm a walking disaster so I need really good cases and screen protectors. In fact I need screen protectors for sunglasses... Those are always getting scratched LOL

Hahaha...honestly, I don't know. Apparently, it says something about it in the Note 2 manual, but there were many also saying that they haven't experienced any issues so far. It was in the Note 2 Accessories thread on XDA

I love SGP's screen protectors and have used them for every device that I've had that SGP made a screen protector for, so I'll be using it on my Note 2 regardless.

I ordered these as well today....I have always used the Spigen SGP screen protectors. they are the best out there in my opinion. When clean, they are as clear as the screen itself and very durable.

I even find them easier to clean than the regular glass.
