Default Issues reported on the Note 2

The following video by qbking77 outlines a few issues recently discovered on the Sprint version of the Galaxy Note 2



Hopefully both Sprint and Samsung issue an update to fix them.

If you encounter any other issue, post them up.

Only one that's a bit concerning is bringing the phone out of standby.

It would be a huge fail if they don't bring multitasking to the US. The backlash would be bad, so I doubt that will be held from update soon.

I have never had voice and data capabilities at the same time, so I won't miss that, but would be nice to have.

What are the odds that Samsung will actually fix these things? Are they even fixable through a simple update?

That voice and data radio would be pretty sweet. I have LTE in my area so it won't be a huge concern unless I get into a spotty area. I guess one benefit to having Best Buy behind the curve is that any small issues have a chance to be addressed.

SVDO is not possible with an update, the FCC docs show that it does not have it.

Edit: FCC Docs for the Sprint version

I would rather have an issue that can be fixed via an easy software update than the issue with the Iphone 5 which has that scuffgate problem which everyones complaining about at the moment. But Each phone has its own set of problems though I suppose

Exactly. I realize he's QBKing but there was no need to start a new thread a day later while the issues are already being discussed.

Default How to solve some of the Galaxy Note II Issues

So I have an idea for a thread that I think would be pretty useful. If you've had an issue with the Galaxy Note II that you've solved, or even been unable to solve, post about it here, and I'll compile a list of solutions in this main thread.

Solved

Only keyboards are English, Spanish, and Korean





Somewhat solved

Folders in App Drawer won't sort correctly for Alphabetical grid





Unsolved

Change Notification Bar Power Widgets





Standard vibrations for notifications are really long





Stock browser loads websites incorrectly

The vibration pattern can be altered in the Handcent SMS app. To be honest the stock app never did have alot of features throughout the Galaxy range. I always use Handcent although there are others out there too.

I use Google Voice. It doesn't have anything to alter vibration patterns or length.

Anyone managed to find a way of getting the stock browser to resize properly as virtually every web page I go on needs to be manually resized even with the resize option checked in settings.
A way of making it stay in desktop view by default would also be nice.

My only complaints are stock browser doesnt resize pages as its supposed to and I find the fact that I always have to switch to desktop mode irritating, it should have a default desktop setting.

I use Dolphin browser. Works real well and resizes. I also don't understand people who are upset about the no voice and data on 3g? It's so slow it barely does data by itself. Just pray for lte to rollout quickly. Hopefully sprint isn't sparing any expense since they're getting $20 billion from soft bank next year.

My S pen marks (or selects) before I put it down. And no multi screen was disappointing.

Man. I had asked about dual voice and data awhile ago, and most people confirmed it would be fine on 4G LTE for sprint and Verizon (however, not on 3G).

Which Carrier Will Allow Simultaneous Voice + Data for Note 2?

I don't really see what you're talking about. I use either Chrome or Dolphin HD most the time, so I'm never in the stock browser, but I just fired it up and loaded a few web pages and they load fine for me. It's possible that it could be the web page itself that's screwed up. Can you give us some examples?

As for staying in Desktop view, switching to another browser, like Dolphin HD, would fix this right up for you, as well as add in a ton of other nice features.

I know what you mean but its not just this phone that does it, my S2 was the same. I use Opera mate, double tap the page and it resizes perfectly. I remember the HTC's were good for this on stock browsing.

Yes it works but I have come from an htc where once you have chosen desktop mode it then stays in it rather than having to reselect it on every new tab you open.

No point in giving examples as it is the same on every new web page I open, looks like I had better start looking at new browsers which is something I have never felt the need to have to bother with before.

He means the web page doesn't load in proportion to the screen. If you double tap it still needs resizing to fit the screen properly. As I said before its not just this phone that does this, I think it's a Samsung thing for sure.

We've already got an "issues" thread here:

Issues reported on the Note 2



As far as the stock browser showing websites incorrectly, what worked for me on my Infinity was click on "Request Desktop" and then refreshed the page. Now the page displays normally.

Other browsers that are out already display pages normally, so this part really isn't a big issue.

It's more than likely anything that has gotten updated to Jellybean, not just a Samsung thing. My Asus Transformer Infinity also did this and I fixed it in my post above.

Not to say that will work on all devices, but worth a try.

On another note, one of the things I don't like about "issue" threads is instead of figuring out how STOCK can be fixed it's always suggested to use something else which sort of defeats the purpose of fixing anything.

To the OP, it's good you started this--don't get me wrong but as someone else said, there is already an issue thread; why do we need 2?

That's because STOCK most-often SUCKS! lol There's always something better out there, hence why we have an app store in the first place.

LOL! I'm starting to enjoy the stock experience. I feel with each better phone certain apps just get better. No, they're not all perfect so the app store will certainly not loose any customers.

While I wouldn't quite say the stock experience sucks. I would say that in most cases, there are third party applications that do the job of stock applications WAY better. For example, the stock browser doesn't really suck, it works perfectly fine for browsing the internet, however, browsers like Dolphin HD have many more plugins and nice features that making browsing the internet even better.

Which Carrier Will Allow Simultaneous Voice + Data for Note 2? - Android Forums
Yeah you posted that question early in the month, but everyone assumed that since the S3 can that the Note 2 on Sprint can also. But we were wrong.

See this article.

I feel you!!! I don't think anyone really knows yet why it was opted out of the Note 2; at least Sprints version I'm aware of so far.

Is anyone else having trouble enabling auto-correct? My phone will not correct simple miss-spellings and it won't change youre -> you're. Pretty simple things here. They have to have auto correct on the Note II right? They wouldn't sell a phone built around taking notes, and not include auto-correct... would they?

On my setup I have the suggested words to use just above the keyboard, so if I type a mistake or join two words by mistake for instance the options are there to correct it. I prefer this much more than my ipad which would auto correct and sometimes put in the wrong words.

The marks/selects is a "feature" of the S Pen. You can disable.
Settings > S Pen > Air view (check or uncheck to your preference).

If you're a Sprint customer you should be receiving an OTA update any day that will give you Multi window view and more features.

My issue of the screen turning on for every text message is officially resolved, due to this XDA thread!

Sorry I am late to the party

For the browser...try the format setting in advanced

If you are looking for text reflow (like HTC) zoom in then double tap. That was changed because of apple.

Are there any browsers or apps that will enable text relflow?

I pre-ordered from Verizon so I don't have the GN2 yet. I was just wondering if anybody that has the phone has eiter found a browser that does this or a workaround.
