Nice. Thanks for the tip. Are you using the stock ROM or a 3rd party launcher?

Saw it early, but completely forgot about it (actually, it's where I first found out that the USB ports are powerful enough to connect external hard drives). One main thing that I forgot is that higher capacity external drives can't connect well. Not really a deal breaker for me because I've been waiting for a reason/excuse to swap out another external drive I have that is only 80gb, so it'll be perfect for backing up my internal drive and microSD.

From the video, if you are rooted there is an app that will allow for NTFS drives. Paragon, I think I heard.

Yeah no kidding.

Speaking of which I went to Amazon and ebay and there are a few available but expensive (more than the Samsung website at regular price).

But while in ebay, I came across a product that I never seen before.
its the Wireless Dual docking station by Samsung which seems to work for the Galaxy Note 2. But as usual it is also expensive as heck. Found it in Amazon in both black and white and a bit cheaper but still.


Now, looking at that product brings me to one of my gripes with manufacturers. Considering that the Note 2 has the ability to be used as a desktop PC with the proper accessories (like the Smart Dock) why don't manufacturers (in this case Samsung) make a better product by combining the smart dock with this speaker dock.
My version would be having the tray slide out allowing you to connect the Note and then make the rear of the device have the 3 USB ports (to connect your mouse, keyboard, external hard drive) as well as a hdmi port to connect to the HDMI tv. But with our luck, they could make it but never be available.

Does anyone have any suggestions for headphones? I can't stand the headphones that came with the phone. I need ones that are like the old, flat ones that will NOT pop out of my ears within moments. I want them to have the volume control, too, but it needs to actually work with this phone and be compatible. I've been searching through Amazon and these forums for awhile but I haven't been able to find the answer. I need them for when I'm not laying down on top of them and the gym (I'm in rehab after being hit by a car).

Here is the case I purchased. It is the Trident Aegis Case. It is similar to the commuter only it is one piece. So far after about a month it is holding up great. The only issue i I see coming is the flaps covering the ports are starting to wear a bit and not stay down as well. Aegis Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 2/N7100

Mouse....I use ones that have the over-ear attachment. They are great for when I run or workout, I keeps them in pretty well. Obviously they are not the best for cancelling out other noises but they do a good job nonetheless. Here is a quick Amazon search to what I am talking about. Not sure of the volume control though. Hopefully you can find what you are looking for.

Default Twister6 accessories review list

I'm starting to loose track of all the accessories I reviewed in this forum, so I figured for the future references to list all of them in this one reply/post which I'm planning to update with more links to my future reviews.

Arkon has a new mount for phone and small tablets. It fits the Galaxy Note 2 with a Defender case and my Nexus 7.

Same white Samsung Smart Dock just done up in Verizon's packaging, and I used my company discount incorporated into my Verizon account. The listed price is $99.99, and I ordered it Monday 2/25 and it was delivered to my door Wednesday 2/27. There was no back order, no delay, so if you are wanting this dock I'd recommend checking out Verizon (worth a shot)...good luck!!

Soon will post the official review of slim-grip ultra, along with sticky suction mount, extended arm mount, and 2 different headrest mounts. Got the whole box of Arkon goodies a few days ago, finally had a chance to take pictures today

Btw, how do you put phone into the mount? The whole idea of ultra slim grip is to use one hand where grip is in portrait orientation with spring-loaded side facing down, and you put on it with a phone to insert it into the grip. But then, you will need to rotate it to landscape orientation with a phone in it. I don't like rotating it all the time, so I'm using it now in landscape orientation, thus need to use both hands to mount the phone. Is that how you do it?

I will also include mounting pictures of my Nexus 7 as well. It works quite well with both Note 2 and Nexus 7.

Yeah, I mount it one-handed, then rotate.

How do you like the way it grips your dash and does it leave any marks on the dash when removed?

The dash in this car is plastic and it grips very well, solid. It doesn't leave any marks or sticky shit.

I confirm, no marks left on the dash, although I felt a little ring indent which is due to fancy Lexus dashboard material.

If you read my full review with pictures, I tried it vertically on kitchen cabinets (wood), island counter top/bottom (granite), wall (painted surface). No residue or marks or damage.

Do you think this would work with a GPS like TomTom?

I guess depending on the size of TomTom? If its a small 3.5" unit, probably not. For something 4"-5" it probably will work. Doesn't dedicated GPS already have bracket with power connector? I remember it was on our old Garmin nav unit. All those brackets already have universal ball joint connector which goes right with Arkon mounting arm. But if you want to use TomTom GPS as is, it's hard to tell without knowing the size of it.

Just to clarify, when I said it doesn't leave any marks, I'm talking about sticky stuff or discoloration. You're talking about an actual ring indentation in the material on your dash, right?

Correct, it wasn't visible but rather something I felt brushing against the surface of dashboard. The suction force is very strong, and my dashboard material is probably softer than usual. I took it off a few days ago, and now that indentation smooth out a bit.

Cool, good to know that it doesn't leave a permanent indentation. My gf's car and the car I shot the video both have a hard plastic dash, so I didn't think about that at all.

Yes it does come with a bracket but the suction lets loose when the temperature changes and I am hoping the Akron with it's sticky surface but no adhesive would hold.

I have been searching and have not found an answer as to whether the Akron Slim-Grip® Ultra™ Sticky Dash / Windshield bracket uses the stuff from gecko research of thousands of tiny nano suction cups to hold it to a surface. Does the paperwork that comes with it say anything about that?

how does the extend arms been working for you? does it bounce around when drive as in vibrating uncontrollably during drive? im not sure if i should the extended or the regular.

they also made this one (saw it in the HTC One subforum) Mobile Grip Removeable Sticky Dash & Console Mount would this work for the note 2?

Not sure if you'd be willing to do this, but could you make a video showing the actual mounting process of the dock on the dash, along with how much force the dock can actually take (with regards to potentially falling off)? It'd also be nice to see how the sticky side looks like, prior to it being mounted.

Also, have you tried mounting vertically on any other part of the front console (or anywhere else on the car) to see if it would be strong enough to hold?

Thanks.

Anybody tried the iOttie Waterproof Skin?

There's a Groupon deal for it and was considering picking one up, just to have, but figured I'd check if anybody has actually tried it and submerged their phone in water:

I don't have their waterproof skin, but I have talked to iOttie marketing department trying to understand how it works. Apparently once you put it inside of that clear sleeve, you have to put a sealant tape on the back and you can submerge it in a deep water. Once you are done and need to charge your phone or just connect micro-usb (unless if you are using wireless charging and wifi transfer of files), you can remove the phone, throw away the sealant tape, and re-use the skin 4 more times. That is why this waterproof skin comes with a total of 5 sealant tapes. Afterwards, they do not recommend you submerging it under deep water. You can continue using it until it rips or completely stretched out and can buy more additional sealant tape, but it's only for carrying your phone in the rain or if you take it to the beach and don't want sand to get inside. Also, I don't think you can stuff it in a regular case because you going to rip it. I would assume a pouch will be more appropriate for it.

I'm curious to see if the Toshiba WACOM pen will work on any of the Note's. It truly is more like a "pen" size and would swoop one of those up in a heartbeat, if it works on the Notes
