I was due an upgrade about a month ago and ditched my iphone 3gs for a Galaxy Note 2 with AT&T. I'm disappointed. It could be just the fact I'm not very tech savvy and dont have things set up right, but the phone has issues with connectivity. I work at a bar in the basement of a casino and the reception is bad. There is one spot where I could get on 3g with my old iphone 3gs and anyone who needs connectivity I tell to sit at this spot at the bar and everyone with a smartphone can connect. I can only connect with my new Note 2 maybe 1 out of 10 tries. As a test, I put my Note 2 right next to my coworker's iphone 4 and we both searched for the same thing on google. His iphone 4's search results popped up in 2 seconds and my Note 2 failed to load anything, ever. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and nothing at all. We have the same carrier (AT&T) and were both on 4g during this test. What is the problem?? My old a$$ iphone 3gs worked better than this thing. I thought for sure with the "quad core processor" this phone would just blow away everyone else's. Maybe I got a lemon? Defective device? Or is the antenna in the Galaxy Note 2 just weaker than an Apple antenna?? Probably in my settings I have to tweak some things but like I said, I'm not completely hip to tech. Can someone talk me into keeping this thing because I'm on the brink of going back to AT&T and getting an iphone 5. I love this phone... I just demand that it work better than an iphone 3gs.
