And also there is an app called Photo Reader. You can take a picture of a text or anything, and the app will generate it to be a real text (on ur phone). If you already install it, there will be new icon on the input setting of the keyboard

Hope this help!
Sweet!!!

Lol. I found it after I downloaded the note 2 manual from play store. Go Settings, Motion and check the tap to top (or something like that) option.

Up til then I thought the poster was messing andjust having a laugh that someone was pointlessly tapping away at the top of the device.

@ cophyor Do you have any issues with Photo Reader? In the play store 5 people gave it 5 ★'s but none of them left a comment. The one comment that is there comes with a 1 ★ review.

Two things I have found today and not seem them mentioned yet. .. apologies if they have.

1. On the quick settings when you pull down the notification bar. ..holding one of the icons takes you directly to the main settings page for that icon.

2. I had a call today from a landline that was not in my contacts. The screen gave me the number but also did the area name where the call was coming from. ..In this instance it was Chester.

Did anyone notice that you can take pics directly from any video you're playing? Juat tap the camera icon at the top middle of the screen while playing a video and it will capture a pic and put it in your screenshots folder.

Lots! And I mean LOTS of really great tips and tricks in this thread but this one just blew my mind. Probably helps that I was watching the new Tron when I did it.

I discovered the "holding the stylus button and drawing a <" trick through this thread, but I found another one by myself. Sorry if this was already posted.

If you hold the button on the stylus and draw a "^" while in the web browser, it will bring up the top bar and menu.

at first my mind read that as taking stills while recording a video, so i wasn't impressed and was puzzled by the next poster, so i reread it and am now duly impressed

someone should compile all these tricks on a wiki guide or something...

Interesting. I see it on mine too. It would be right where the singer's face is on your video.

Now, question is if you can direct the screenshots to go to the exterior SD, not the internal.

I don't remember I think I got it from sharing, I see the camera on my personal videos now that I've looked at them but I guess it's just for my own recordings.

Couldn't remember if it was you that had left Sprint or not. Seems like it may be for certain videos. It's definitely not just limited to ones that are taken with the phone.

Nope. My camera settings were already set to save on my microSD. The screenshots from videos go into SDCard (e.g. Interior storage)/Pictures/screenshots

That's what I did, but it'd be way more convenient if the screenshots could be directed to the microSD.

I agree.

The take-pics-during-video-playback thing was a feature of the EVO LTE that I missed when going to the Galaxy S III. Hmmm, maybe it had it all along and I didn't know it.... I shoot videos of my son and this feature comes in handy!

3. Hold down the S-pen button and draw around the area of the picture that you want to use
Note: draw a bigger area than needed and beware of the yellow square around the face!
4. Dump the selected area in Scapbook
5. Go to contacts and select the needed one.
6. Tap on the place for photo, select "S-Note" from the pop-up menu
7. Select Scrapbook and you'll find the selection
8. Using S-Pen, refine your selection with the rectangle tool that appears (here you'll see why you had to select a bigger area)
9. Click "Done"

Sorry, it does not sound easy with so many steps, but once you try it, you'll find out it IS easy.
Why not just add a picture from directly from the gallery? Why go through all the trouble?

I tried this, but coudn't add a subject... Infact i tried it so many times i found 2 new features i didn't know of!
1. When you're in S-note, holding the button on the s-pen and long-pressing the screen, an "Idea Sketch"-window pops up with a pig white square in it. Here you can write for example "Tree", and a sketch of a tree is added to the note. (30 minutes ago when i was reading your post, and trying this out, the "Idea sketch" popped up every time, but now for some reason, it will only screenshot (because i am actually taking a screenshot) and its sorta random when the idea sketch pops up. Can someone confirm this?) Also, while trying to do this now, i found out how to add the subject. You dont have to press the button on the s-pen, just simply longpress the "subject"-field and it'll be editable! EDIT: Reading your post again i see that is exactly what you wrote, i mixed up "click the pen" with "click the s-pen button" :P
2. When you're in s-note, and just hovering over with the s-pen, a single click on the button will switch between the brush and eraser. Very convenient!

Am i misunderstanding something here? I'm just writing like i do on paper (whole sentences - with spaces) and they are added automatically...

They're only referring to when writing 1 word at a time. When you write 1 word at a time, it doesn't automatically add a space.

Furthur to this you can also add extra Pen styles and types to your favourites and when "hovering and clicking with the S pen button" it will cycle through them all and the eraser. To add a pen style as a favourite just click the little + when on the "Select the colour / pen type etc" box. It will be added to the list on the right and you can click the - to remove them from your favourites.

Another tip I have is for anyone with a Playstation 3. When connected to the same network as your PS3, You can stream content from your phone directly from your PS3 so is great for showing off photos and videos on your "Just slightly bigger than your note 2" HDTV. If you are connecting over a G Wireless network the connection can be a little slow but you have the option move the content to your PS3 and then play it.

To do this you need to turn on "File Sharing" under Settings > More Settings > Nearby Devices. And then you need to "Search for Media Devices" on the PS3. However should you have problems with getting it to work have a quick search for a Youtube Video or Guide to help. It is easy to do!

I have no doubt you can stream and share to other devices aswell.

You can also stream straight to your TV of it has DNLA built in. Just wanted to add that this past saturday I used my ps3 to stream a 1080p video I took that day on my Note and video was unwatchable. It was like trying to stream a movie on Edge, while the 1080p quality is amazing, the video was laggy and would stop playing every couple seconds. Im still trying to find a solution to this. On the other hand, when I used my MHL cable all is great.

For anyone interested on streaming via DNLA just lookup vids for the S3 as its the same procedure

That's what I did, but it'd be way more convenient if the screenshots could be directed to the microSD.
Only items that go into the microsd card when enabled under settings in the camera app are videos and pictures. Even if the microsd is the preferred storage method, all burst shots, screen captures, pictures captured during filming or from videos default to the internal phone storage. I believe I read this information in the PDF manual.

This. What's funny is, some of the gestures are extremely similar to how the OG i500, which was a palm based smartphone w/ stylus. I actually loved that phone, including the form factor. It was before Windows Mobile phones became popular, but it really served its purposes well. Having the Note 2 is making me reminisce about when I started to use smartphones and start figuring out customizations for smartphones. On top of that, the Spen reminds me of how awesome it was to have a stylus (even though the SPen is worlds better, since it uses WACOM digitizing capabilities).

Default Slide-out bar

Sometimes I get a blue-ish slide out bar on the left side of my home screen, with shortcuts inside. How do I make this go away?

Same thing. Hold down back button to make it appear or disappear.

Question though, do you not want to use multi-tasking? That's the purpose of that tab/toolbar.

I'm having a bit of ADD today, so maybe you folks can help out.

But how does one add or write a note to the back of a picture you take. I know i saw it in the videos/demos but for the life of me I can't seem to figure how to do it.

TS out (printing the pics so i can write on the back of them) lol

Hahaha...I wanted to do this the other day also, but could not remember how they did it in the tutorial video. All of these things they make sound oh so simple...until you actually have the phone and realize there are millions of options for doing things. Bigger learning curve than expected, but definitely so much fun trying to figure all of them out.
