    Hello, I am considering to trade in my Galaxy Note to Note 2. Does the Note 2 has black crush issue the Note experiences? Thanks.

    Hello, considering to trade in my Note for Note 2. I guess some of you have done it. Any regret? Any problem with the Note 2? I suppose Note 2 might have a higher chance to have the next generation of Android OS supported than the Note. I compared my Note with somebody's Note 2. Under Calculator, my Note seems to rotate faster than her Note 2 when switching between protrait and landscape modes. I do not know the reason.

    Any user experience appreciated. Thanks.

    There are many people who've done it. It's no different than upgrading from the SII to SIII. Some have even gone from the SIII to the Note II.

    Here's a really good comparison article What

    Is it possible to have "Black crush issue with Note2?" returned as a separate thread? Somebody may know the answer but is not interested in "Any regret going from Note to Note 2". In that case, I lose somebody who could provide me the answer. Thanks.

    FWIW, I was using "Screen Adjuster", to manage my at&t Note's "over saturated" contrast/color levels...not an issue with T-Mo Note 2, and only had to use "Normal" or "Movie" mode to get the pq where I like. This from someone with a calibrated Panny plasma.

    I went from a non-LTE Note 1 to a LTE Note 2. I compared the Note 1, Note 2 and the Iphone 5 in some basic side by side tests. I updated my Note 1 with the latest firmware.

    Rotating Portrate to Landscape : Note 2 was faster than Iphone 5 for some webpages and vice versa. Note 1 was the slowest.

    Loading webpages : Note 2 was noticably but slightly faster than Note 1. Note 2 and Iphone 5 was again similar.

    The biggest improvement I noticed between the Note 2 over the Note 1 is the faster speed between switching between apps and and/or going back to the home screen. The extra ram in the Note 2 makes a world of difference. It is much more responsive. The Note 1 drove me nuts when I would press the home key but I would get a black screen for up to 5-7 seconds before getting back to the home screen. It made the experience feel very laggy.

    There is almost no lag with the Note 2.

    Hello
    I own the Note 1 and a Note 2.

    I prefer my new Note 2 as it's faster, the camera is better (no pink spots or focus issues) and I haven't experienced any black crush issues.

    The fact that it is slightly more narrower than the Note 1 makes it easier to hold. The S-pen functionality has improved, however I still prefer to use my S- pen from my Note 1 in a holder Kit as it is more comfortable to use.

    Both phones are great, you will have to decide if these improvements are worth the upgrade.

    I upgraded as T mobile UK gave me a massive discount. This means that my montly bill is

    I have the Note and Note 10.1. I just recently got my Note 2 and still playing with it. It is actually a much more better experience overall compared to the original Note.

    Camera is more responsive on the Note 2. My Note LTE needed to wait a few seconds to write before I could take another pic.

    Too many apps running bogged the Note and caused it to lag or crash. I have no such issues with the Note 2.

    S-pen is more responsive on the Note 2. It gives a way better experience than when I had my Note. My Note LTE would lag sometimes when using the S-pen.

    I also don't notice any black crush issues with the Note 2.

    The only thing I did not like is the auto brightness setting for the Note 2. It is not as visibly bright as the Note LTE.

    Edit: Geez, how can I forget the battery life? It's way better than the Note. I can actually last a good day with heavy usage on the Note 2. I was actually surprised at how much better it really was.
