Well..I have "bad" news. The guy didn't show. Very "unfortunate"...



Had he shown up, he would have told me a bunch of stuff I "could not" share...and he would have let me hold a device " I couldn't tell you about"







what a disappointing night

What a shame. Had he shown up all the points you made would have been nice to be proven true.
Regardless, I will just wait until someone will step toward and break their NDA and provide us with juicy details. Until then, thanks.

Had all of that happened, I think the note 2 would be my top choice....but oh well, I guess i'll just have to wait. My big wish is that Sprint will make the right decision and carry this option, especially in 64gb flavor.

Who needs a big screened, fast phone anyway!

You know, that is so true.
I actually think my eyesight is getting better with age, so much better that I think I will give up my Note 1 and just go to the Sprint store and get the iphone 4. Its 3.5 inch screen is enough for my super dooper vision right now.
A 5.3/5.5/5.9 inch screen is just overkill for my eyes.

Right, TS? iPhone is on its way back to me because the buyer "claimed" it didn't power up. I guess, assuming he's legitimately being honest, I'll just go into apple, get it repaired, and use the 4S instead.

(LOL...I so want to post the EVO vs. iPhone video again because it's so applicable with my reply...hahahahaha, but I'll respect TOU.)

And who needs to multi-task watching videos on half the screen while being able to read an article on another. Or have a music widget visable on one part of the screen, while doing some work on the rest of the screen...all on the go. What a waste of time. And a pen stylus? Who writes with a pen anymore? ROFLMAO

Only reason it wasn't a 13.0 MP rear camera was because Sony couldn't deliver enough to cover Samsung's needs?

Samsung Galaxy Note II doesn’t have a 13MP camera because Samsung couldn’t get enough CMOS sensors from Sony Unwired View

That would've been the cherry on top that would've pushed me towards the Note 2.

as mentioned in the one of my previous posts, the roadmap does indeed show that a 12-13 megapixel camera was in the timeline with the 5.5 inch phone. And that article proves it was going to have it.

i sense a mid year refresh of the Note 2 coming. lol

I saw that news too. But I'm ok with 8MP camera. 13MP won't necessarily produce better images than 8MP if lens/sensor quality, image processing engine to control light noise don't match up to higher pixel density. It will give larger resolution file for bigger printing. but very few people print pictures from phones at 100% resolution because image quality on small details will look very poor. Small P&S cams are having the same issue due to this marketing push for higher mega pixels.

Yeah, I'm not really that disappointed because Samsung's phone cameras have proven to be one of the best on the market, but that larger resolution would've just been so nice for editing down pictures.

Nontheless, I'm sure it'll produce outstanding pictures.^^^

Another question. Do you know if it will take a mini sim or a micro sim?

I'd like to be able to pop in my T-Mobile Galaxy S2 sim without cutting it down.

It's too bad that nobody was able to actually see a phone or speak with a rep as certain hypothetical thoughts seem to be at odds with each other.

Like imagine somebody thought "I wish I knew that I could tell you 100% quad core with a release sometime in Q1"

But then seemed to later ponder "If I had talked to him, I wonder if he could have confirmed q4..which is oct nov dec for those not into the lingo."

Now if any of that were official it might become confusing.

I noticed that as well.

but hypothetically, if the source had shown up, I would assume he would have given a bit more detail in that it would have been probably announced in qtr 4 for release in qtr 1. Which coincides with that roadmap posted a while back.

Had that have happened, it would put the Note 2 out of the running for my last upgrade, since I only have until end of December...otherwise, I'll have to wait until March.

Actually, I totally miscalculated. I only accounted for 14 months, so I thought that my final 1 year upgrade would expire after December, but looks like January would've been my 18 month timeframe for upgrade anyway. That's win-win...Of course, this is assuming that the Note 2 even gets released on Sprint.

I so hope that it gets released earlier than the 1st quarter of 2013. I may not be able to hold out for that long.

Looking back, it appears that there was even a second q4 speculation regarding a NA release, "I would be lucky if I could even get q4 out of anyone. "

It really makes you wonder if anybody speculating in the q1 time period simply had a typo.

But then seemed to later ponder "If I had talked to him, I wonder if he could have confirmed q4..which is oct nov dec for those not into the lingo."

Now if any of that were official it might become confusing.
Definitely a typo in there. Q1 would be absurdly late

Default 64GB?

I would like to know if the 64GB version will be released at the same time as the others, or if it will be delayed (like it is for the Galaxy S III). I had been waiting for the Galaxy S III, 64GB version, for some time, but then I researched the Galaxy Note II and decided that this would be the phone to get. So I wait some more.

hey drex,

remember when I said that you should if possible wait till both devices (Vu and Note) are in the stores so you can check it out and then decide. Well, while its not the same thing as a hand on, you might find this interesting...

Place a virtual Galaxy Note II and more devices in your hand with HandsonAR.



If that isn't freaking cool, I don't know what is. lol

TS out

Thanks for the vid, TS. That is cool as hell!...LOL

I'm actually not considering the VU. The Eclipse is smaller, so if I go Phablet...it'd be the Note 2. If I just go phone, it'll be the Eclipse (assuming it's the US version of the Optimus G).

what a disappointing night
Have I told.... you lately.... that I love you....




Shame the person bailed, maybe you could have determined the size of the internal storage that would be available. Wouldn't 64GB internal + 64GB microSD card be amazing???

Yeah, I'm sure there are many Verizon customers that feel the same as you. I'm just happy that there've been lots of leaked blogs about Sprint getting it. Now, I just hope that it gets released in q4 and I won't have to wait too long to decide between the optimus g and this beast.

Hahaha...I'm not "quite" there yet because I'm reserved to see how the Optimus G (aka Eclipse) is. So, I'm not likely to pre-order, whichever of the two is released first, but these are definitely my top 2 choices. The Note 1 is humongous. I always thought that would bother me, but the more that I thought about the multi-tasking capabilities and the s-pen and all the other "business" benefits I'd have with the Note 2, the more it jumped out as a true contender for my final upgrade. On top of that, I could easliy see myself keeping it (afterwards) as a media player...if I decide to upgrade in 2014, when I'll be eligible for my 1st non-1 year upgrade (man, that seems so far away).

Good to know that some of the MoPho peeps might be rocking the same device...including TS, who had already mentioned a long time ago that he's coming back to Sprint if the Note 2 makes its way over.

Yea I left my photon behind and am using an old iphone 4 (long story) I got out of phones for a few months because i was spending too much on them buying retail. I never wait for upgrades but this time I have one and have decided on the note as my upgrade and want to try to keep it as long as possible lol.
