Default Galaxy Note 2 Tips and FAQ's - Quick Access Thread

In the interest of tradition, I decided to compile a Complete "Quick Access" Thread, that will be a shortcut to some of the better/more thorough discussions going on about the Note 2. This is a tradition that started in the EVO forums, and extended to the Photon (courtesy of busted bones). I know other forums have benefited from similar threads, so hopefully, for long time members, this will allow you quick navigation through the forums when you're trying to find an old thread that hadn't been on topic in a while. For you new members (and especially those new to Android), it'll afford you the opportunity to learn functions on the Note 2 and/or Android quickly, in order for you to have the ability to participate in discussions sooner than you might have before. And be able to get familiar with your device (or any Android device you own in the future).

Enjoy!

treb1797...I appreciate the nomination, but I've already been there done that. Didn't have enough time to do that, enjoy the forums and be able to do the day job effectively also...so I resigned my position a few months ago.

I still try to help out all my former Guides and Mods though, whenever I can.

Have you downloaded the manual? The link is listed above, for download from the samsung website. Take a look through the manual and I'm sure you'll find the answer.

Easy cross platform way to delete any files on android is long press on file, then choose delete. But I'm sure there's a multi-select option on the note 2 that will allow you to delete multiple files at one time.

If you want to replace S-Voice with Google Now when you double press the center button...

I hate S-Voice and prefer Google Now. After a little searching I found this post, works great:

Original info at XDA Link

Here is the play link for home2

Step 1) Go into the S Voice settings and uncheck the Launch SVoice box. This will keep S Voice from launching when you double tap the home button.

Step 2) Install Home2 Shortcut from the Play Store

Step 3) Open Home2 Shortcut and configure it to launch the app of your choosing with a double tap of the home button. edited for Note 2

Step 3a) Open Home2 and under settings step 1
....Choose Application --> Installed applications --> Voice Search --> OK

Step 3b) Scrolled down to step 2 and selected "Short"

Step 3c) Scrolled down to step
.... Choose Home Application --> Touch Wiz home

Step 3d) Scroll down to step 4 and click the "Close button"
.... Clicked Home Shortcut --> Always --> Ok

Note If the close button does not bring up the home selection screen and you are running another launcher like Nova, ADW or Apex, go into settings --> manage applications --> "The launcher you are using" --> click clear defaults

Works great

That signifies where the charge level is of the battery. Red= low, orange= medium, light orange=medium-high, green=fully charged.

That's a good thing, not bad

"Safe Mode" Recovery procedure

I have been installing several apps, and suddenly one of my favorites "Sun Vox" no longer made any sound. Figured id debug later.


So just this evening I first saw my Galaxy Note 2 Phone said:

"SAFE MODE"


in the Lower Left corner of the Home screen.


Discovered the steps to Reset and clear that problem here:


"
Safe mode on any electronic device is usually a diagnostic mode used to route out problems. To get the Samsung Galaxy out of Safe mode, follow these steps:

1. Power off the phone.

2. Remove the battery and reinsert the battery."





So I did procedure above, and now everything is now working just fine!

I love showing off my phone and have found the following features the best way to do just that:

Want to show off the features of your Galaxy Note 2 and make your friends envious (besides the screen size)?

S-Pen
Quote:
Ok, the S-Pen by far is one of the coolest and useful tools out there, so why not start there
Prep:
Make sure page buddy is turned on (Settings Display Page buddy)
Make sure Open Popup Note is enabled (Settings S Pen Open Popup Note)

#1 With the screen off, pull out the S-Pen and watch the screen turn on and s-note open

#2 Show Gestures
………. 2a. Press the button and draw a line upward to enter Quick Commands
………. 2b. Press the button and draw a < (greater sign) to go back
………. 2c. Press the button and draw an ^ (up arrow) to open the menu
………. 2d. Press the button and double tap the screen to open S-Note
………. 2e. Press the button and long press the screen to take a screen shot

#3 Open the Web
Press the button and draw around something on the screen to do a screenshot cut out
Hover over a website that has dropdown menus (acts like a mouse over)
Open the internet Press the button and draw over text to highlight text
Hover over a screen like a webpage and go to the edge to see it scroll

#4 Open Video player (watching that is cool in itself)
Hover over a video to see a popup play
Open video and let it play – hover over the timeline to show a preview of that spot

#5 Open Gallery
Hover over an album and sit there to go through previews of the pictures in that album
Open a picture, hit menu and select “Add Note to Back of Image)
Write something on the back

#6 S Note
Ok this one is cool without using any fancy clicks and such, but I found this post and while in s-note, if you hove rthe pen and click the button, it switches between your favoriate/saved pen tips and the eraser

Last but not least, and this is more of a fix than showing off
IF YOUR S-PEN STOPS WORKING CORRECTLY CHECK OUT THIS THREAD
DLNA (NOT AllShare!)
Quote:
I found this info here
Turn on "File Sharing" under Settings > More Settings > Nearby Devices, this lets you share pics, music and video with your DLNA devices.
And if you have an XBox you can use an app called iMediaShareLite (free) to steam media to your XBox
Motions
(some other Samsung phones have this, however it is still fun to show off)
Quote:
Prep:
Make sure Motions are on (settings Motion check all) (you can use them all, I just use the following)

#1 Quick glance: (with phone off and on a table) wave your hand over the top of the phone

#2 Direct call: Look at a text, then hold the phone up to your ear (to call that person)

#3 Smart alert: This is harder to show, however you can still explain the phone vibrates when you pick it up if there are missed called/messages…

#4 Turn phone over to pause: play music and turn the phone over
Gallery
Quote:
#1 Open the galley and hit the view button in the upper right corner (not too useful however it looks cool )
#2 Hit the + folder to make a new album; click a few pictures and press and hold on the last picture; then drag to the new album; it is a cool animation
#3 Open a picture and use the following features (press menu to access)
………. 3a. Face tag
………. 3aa. Manual face tag, press and hold on a picture on a face that is not auto tagged to add face tag
………. 3b. Tag Buddy
………. 3c. Note on back (you should have already done this)
………. 3d. Paper Artist
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next items are really cool and I do not know of any other phones that have them, however I’m not 100% sure


Video Player
Quote:
Open video player, select settings and select shooting mode
Go through the slow motion and fast motion recording modes
You can also take pictures while playing a video (NOTE 2 ONLY!!!)
Camera
Quote:
Modes/features to play with
Quote:
Outdoor Visibility
Shooting modes
…..Best Photo (NOTE 2 ONLY!!!)
…..Best Face (NOTE 2 ONLY!!!)
…..Face Detection
…..Panorama
…..HDR (NOTE 2 ONLY!!!)
…..Low Light (killer low light pictures) (NOTE 2 ONLY!!!)
Anti-Shake
Video Recorder
Quote:
It is a camcorder, kinda normal however it does have fast motion and slow motion shooting modes
Quote:
You can also take pictures while recording video
Multi-View
Quote:
AT&T does not have this yet, however if you do, show it off

Home Button
Quote:
If you have “Voice Search” set to double tap, show that (see my post in the FAQ’s thread)

S-Voice
Quote:
Open S-Voice and pull out the S-Pen
Quote:
You can write search terms and commands
Menu button
Quote:
Long press the menu button to open Google Now, then say Google


FTP access to your phone?
Quote:
You can turn your phone into an FTP server and with the right kind of WiFi network, trans files at about 1.5-1.7MB per second (fast for me), check out this post: Enabing the Note II as a Mass Storage Device

If you need to play FLV files -
MX Player works very well!

Had to use "Software decode" on some FLV files.

Were there 2 SNotes showing? There are 2 in mine. 1 doesn't have the clear defaults, but the other one does. And you have to scroll down to see it.

If that's the case, then the next time you click on S-Note, it should give you the prompt again.

So sorry...trying to think of what else it could be. The only other option I can think of is to clear the cache, but I don't want you to lose any Notes that you've already created. I've only had my phones for a couple weeks, so I've only had one opportunity to use SNote in a meeting, so I couldn't even say what the prompt was or how to bring it back.

Have you checked the settings in the SNote app itself? Maybe there's something in there that'll allow you to bring the prompt back?

Hey, clearing the cache has no effects on your saved notes, and i always clear the cache memory.
Ya i looked everywhere but so far couldnt get it back, i dont need it anyway for now, but was woundering how to get it back, who knows might be of good use one day or another, anyways will keep on trying.
Thanks

Some issues I have. Please folks help me.

Issue 1: Suddenly goggle latitude icon is missing from my app screen. Where did it go? How to get it back?

Issue 2: All the programs i download brings an icon both on the app screen and home screen, after i changed something. I don't want this happening.
How do i make it not automatically show up on the home screen?

Issue 3: Can't I view web pages with flash video? Its says not supported. Any work around options?

Issue 4: How do I turn of the music player? exiting screen still puts an icon on the top

Issue 5: Which is the best protective case- I like the Flip wallet stand type and Seidio surface with kickstand

Issue 6: How do I change icon images?

Issue 7: How do I password protect folders?

Issue 8: Ho do I make the app download request for my password before it downloads any new software. (Like in Iphone)

Issue 9: See a faint red glow from the indicator light. What does that mean? Battery low ?

Thanks.

For number 2, if you're talking about apps you downloaded from the play store, go into the play store's settings & uncheck the "auto add widgets" box. This will stop this behavior.

Quick question guys, is there a way to set desktop view as default in either the stock browser or Chrome? I know you can select desktop view in the settings menu when you're on a webpage but can you select it as default anywhere so you don't have to do it everytime? I can't find the option to do that anywhere.

I don't think there is. I've been searching for that option as well. I don't mind clicking the toggle for each new website (it seems to remember the option to go to desktop site, if it's one that you visit often), but this is one thing that I actually loved about Dolphin browser before. I think that's the only thing that I really like Dolphin over chrome for.

Settings>Wi-fi>Menu>Advanced>Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep>Change to Always

I don't know if this will necessarily help though. Did you try re-setting your router (just pull power and leave disconnected for 30 seconds and plug back in)?

Just a guess here, but it looks like you keyed in the wrong password.

Is this what you're looking for?

Press & hold home button to bring up running apps ---> tap Task manager on bottom left ---> select RAM on top ---> tap Clear memory button

I came across a great tip last night while watching the Rearth Case Video by contributing writer Chris Chavez that was so obviously cool and subtle that I thought to myself.....dang.....why didn't I think of that.


At 3:46 mark he takes the back cover off his phone and uses the case as the cover instead. This is great for those who often switch out batteries and worry about damaging the battery cover. I'm using Samsung's OEM Hardshell whose back has the exact feel as the cover and fits snug enough that I can use it without the battery door attached.

Thanks GamerCore

ATT local doesn't seem to know what to tell us... anyone??? Thanks!!!
If you're still having this problem, try enabling mac address filtering on your router. You will have to google the model # of the router and "mac address filter" and should be able to find a tutorial, turn it on, then add the mac addresses of the phones to the "allowed" list. In the past, this has worked every time when I've had devices unable to stay connected. Note, you will have to also add the mac address from any other wireless device in order for them to continue to connect as well.
