Cool Just ordered a white AT&T Note 2 :D

I need to familiarize myself with Android and what better phone to do that with than the Note 2. How are you guys enjoying your white note 2 on AT&T? Got it outright at $549.99 from the AT&T Premier online store. Not to bad, considering AT&T wants $649.99 for the device upfront.

Coming from an iPhone 4s I am sure I will have my hands full. Any guys using the White Note 2? I think the bezel on the white n2 looks amazing.

Would love to see some pictures...

Thanks

I have a white AT&T Note 2. Best phone ever, I don't plan on replacing it with anything of the current generation, and probably not the next.

Since you're new to this phone, check out The Daily Note II: Galaxy Note 2 Videos - YouTube

Have you used other smartphones besides the iphone?

The "white" Note 2 looks the same on all carriers. Here's hoping you enjoy yours.

Except for Big red since they put that ugly logo on the home button . I have a White N2 on ATT and I really wish I could trade it in for a grey one. Idk why but I'm not feeling the white anymore.

Time for a new case

I'm tired of my white case on my white phone so I'm looking at getting the Seidio Active, they have a nice red one. Its almost like having a new phone.

I have a white n2 from at&t and it's pretty good. I came from an iPhone4 and an iPad mini. I got the note to replace the other two devices. Android is okay, but not has refined as iOS. Apps are limited, as I am limited in what I can get that I had on iOS. I also am amazed that with the quad processor and 2 gigs of ram it's really not as fast as my wife's iPhone5.

All that said, it does what i NEED it to do, perhaps not everything i WANT it to do. It did in fact replace the two devices, and for that I am grateful. The phone itself looks good, and of course the screen is awesome. To me the screen is just beautiful. Gaming on it is weak compared to iOS, except for one thing. It has an amazing PS1 emulator! That one emulator has got me completely over iOS gaming

LOL. I got the grey one only because the white one looked cheap and like a toy. But that's just me. I still feel that way whenever I see the white one. I can't shake that feeling and was what prevented me from going with white.

Hopefully you won't experience that and actually enjoy it like the others.

Yes, I love my white AT&T Note 2!
The dark one was nice, but I really liked the white color best.
I remember when almost all cell phones came in black or dark only, so I am glad that we have a choice now!

I love my white Note also. For some reason I felt white looked better with a variety of cases and accessories. I also agree with TheOtherBill that a case can transform the look of the phone. I bought the Case Mate Tough on Twister6's recommendation and love it.

I read Twister's review also and once I looked into it the Tough is actually the case I like best - but it doesn't have a kickstand. I am now used to the kickstand and can't give it up. So I just ordered the Seidio Active - gotta love Amazon Prime, it'll be here Friday.

The reason I chose the white was because every phone I ever had was either black or gray. It was time for something different. I'm happy.

I honestly felt the same way and really wanted to get white. But then it looked more like a cheap toy to me when I was playing around with it.

Odd, as I got a white tower case for my desktop computer lit up with green LEDs. I love how my tower looks with white, but not on the phone.

I hate the platinum one, cuz someone at the store told me the white gets dirty easily. LOL other than that, i LOVE this thing, even though my hands are the size of a squirrel and i have issue reaching across the phone with one hand LOL

Rule #1: 50% of everything a phone store employee tells you is wrong.

Are you sure? I thought they were mostly (if not all) wrong, incorrect or giving misinformation to get a sale.

The white can get a little dirty, but if you clean it regularly, there shouldn't be any issues. I'm basing this on the white Ace IIx my sister-in-law has. Don't know what she does, but it gets dirty from time to time. But still easy to clean off with a slightly damp cloth.

Edit: I should add the grey also gets dirty too, just harder to see. I clean this also once a month as well as the case its in. The screen however needs a daily wipe down. It gets ugly after a few hours of screen use without the pen.
