Default Galaxy Note 2 Call Quality?

Hello everyone. I'm an iPhone 5 owner who is thinking about sending back my iPhone 5 for the GN2...which looks so amazing.

Can those of you who have the GN2 already please comment on the call quality. Is it loud enough when not using the speakerphone? Thanks for your input.

Volume is dependent on those things, quality is very dependent on the signal in your area and the carrier. I can't stand talking to people on AT&T in my area (which is everyone in my family but me.. lol), even though the signal is strong for them, there is a definite quality issue across all phones.

There will be a quality issue for any call accross diifferent protocols (i.e. CDMA to GSM). FWIW, the volume levels are a little better on my T-Mo (USA) branded Note2 than on my AT&T Note...this from a VoIP engineer whose highest cell phone priorities are reception and earpice/speaker qualities.

It's the best I have experienced on ANY phone I have owned, same is music, but I guess it can vary by carrier

Hey this review might answer your question. One of my favourite review video and the best on youtube for Note 2 I believe. Also there's the call quality and speaker quality comparison. Galaxy Note 2 Review And Note 1 Comparison - YouTube
