Default should I get the galaxy note II?

I like having an actual keyboard, I have enjoyed my G2, however the data signal seems to have gotten worse, my area seems to have spotty service and every since they supposedly wend 4G it got slower.

One annoying thing about my G2 is every few days it will develop a problem where while texting it will start to throw me all over the phone with certain button presses until I reboot.

Another problem is when I get too many messages built up it will get stuck on sending until a reboot.

I was thinking maybe a more powerful phone with new technology may improve my signal and have better data performance.

I am not sure if I want a phone that large as I always use a belt holster for work but It would be nice for other things.
Anyone tryed the Galaxy note II?

While I loved my G2, I got tired of the tiny screen. I got a S3 a week ago and LOVE it. I thought that I would miss the keyboard and while I do a little bit, the S3 is so fantastic that I am left wondering why I didn't upgrade before.

Even better, my bill went down $25 a month. Go for it my friend!

Got the note II yesterday,
it seems awesome so far. I havnt had much time to play around yet.
I cannot believe it is so hard to find a case though, I see otterbox has one but they are not available for sale yet. I ordered a get me buy case off amazon but just noticed the est. ship date is a month from now, I could not even find a universal holster locally that would fit it. I am a little nervous not having it protected as I use it as a work phone as well, the HTC was smaller and made of metal so I am not sure the plastic housing would hold up well to a drop.

Default Go for it

Coming from myself, this is my 3rd Android device . My first being the G1 and upgrading to the G2 when it was a few months old. I love the Galaxy note II, I can't put it down since I bought it release day. Videos and Web Browsing are amazing. Battery life is also very good coming from the 3100 mah battery. Combine that with jelly bean platform and this device is a must. The 5.5 screen has its pros and cons. Some of the cons are the size of the phone makes it hard to use one handed. Using it while driving can get tricky but manageable. Make sure you have a spot where to put the phone, mine moved from a cell phone holder to my cup holder if the phone is not in my pocket. My two cents, go to a dealer and use the phone for a few minutes to see if it fits the bill for a new phone. I'm very happy with my Note II, should keep me happy for a long time. Cases are hard to come by, I checked Best Buy and Target oftenly. Ebay has many to choose from. All l need now is a screen protector, too scared to remove the original film off the screen.

The T-Mobile G2 came as the successor to the G1, the worlds very first Android phone. The G Series has come a long way since then, but has retained one major element: a stock Android experience that forgoes any manufacturer customizations to the us... Read More
