Coolest Feature,Tip,Trick or App you have found For the Note 2Tips

Last Updated:

  1. Yes even I've observed that my Internet connectivity is far far better than it was on my Galaxy SL. As for Keyboard, they've stopped with swype which I feel is better than their new keyboard which too supports swype like continuous input. But yes having the digits at the top is something quite good.

    Thanks for pointing that out about the built-in keyboard. I've come from using Swype on my S2 and although I love the predictive text on the Samsung keyboard - it predicts based on previous words, and often guesses your next word too - I'd been missing the slidy-ness of Swype.

    If anyone's wondering how to enable sliding, it's under Settings/Language and input/Samsung keyboard (tap the cog icon).

    Just curious, a friend has the Galaxy S3 updated to Jellybean but the keyboard doesn't have the figures at the top. Is there a way to enable this or is it a Note 2 specific feature?

    Which version of the GNote2 are you doing this on? Either I'm not doing it right or it isn't on the TMoUS version.

    Here's an interesting feature on my LTE phone (Rogers Canada). It's not a useful feature, its actually quite annoying.

    Turn on blocking mode so that you can mute your phone (mutes everything) during certain hours of the day. I had mine configured to mute everything between the hours of 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM.

    Now, when the blocking mode is not active, the display comes on by itself every minute or so. And the phone is unlocked as well when the display comes on.

    It can be cool if you want to see your wallpaper every minute, otherwise its quite annoying.

    Anyone else experience this very strange "feature"?

    Settings > Motion > is yours on or off?
    If you tap motion there are other motion options in there.

    Mine is on. But why would it cause that weird behaviour?

    I have a US T-Mobile branded Note 2, and Swype is the default keyboard. Its significantly improved from the Swype on my old Galaxy Epic. Its super smooth, predictive text is nearly perfect, and the dictionary is really easy to add or delete from.

    Maybe its installed at preference of the service provider, on top of the original Jellybean?

    In S Note, to put in a subject in the subject box, click the pen(drawing mode) than press and hold on the subject box. the box will get highlighted(you can move it or make it bigger if needed) than click the box again and a cursor will appear in the box.

    The weird behavior is called gestures. Samsung wants you to be one with your phone. If you go into the motion setting you can turn it off completely or click on "motion" and turn on/off the exact gestures you'd like to use/not use.

    Cool feature? I was in a pub last night standing at the bar and we go onto a complicated question so we decided to Google it. Rob had a small 2 year old phone and Neil had a Galaxy S2 (sorry S2 fans); while they were struggling to get a connection and Rob was squinting to see the screen, I pulled out my Note 2 and it was like the Alien Mothership from Independence Day! Jaws dropped all round :)

    Turn on Quick Glance so when you phone is lying on a flat surface and asleep wave your hand near the top you will get a brief flash of any call texts and emails the time will display.

    Hold down the menu button to quickly access Google now

    Draw a sideways V with the button held on the S-Pen will go back so you don't have to hit the haptic back key.

    When drawing with the s pen in handwriting-text mode, draw a vertical line to insert a space between words.

    I so wish the space was automatic.

    There is some method for the space to be automatically added, I just have not figured out what I am doing yet. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. LOL.

    Oh wow Derp if you find it PLEASE post it. Everything I've read says draw a line but more times than not my line isn't recognized as a line.

    wouldn't that vertical line look like an l or an I?
