    Just got back from Shinedown and three days grace... And the video turned out great but the sound poopoo... I mean I have used many phones at concerts and the audio usually is crap
    .. Was hoping this would be different....

    This should have been your expectation given that no one has reported otherwise while filming in a concert with the N2.

    Damn, this makes me sad. My S3 recorded awesome video at the slipknot concert, but the audio was crap but mostly because I was at the front of the stage. Would you mind putting some of the videos up?

    the microphone and record quality of higher end smart phones are too sensitive for extremely loud noises like loud concerts.

    the audio record quality while recording a video on the G Note 2 is awesome but really loud sounds will sound boggy upon playback. :(

    I'll be taking it with me anyways, though I don't really try to record video at shows like that.

    I wonder if putting a piece of tape over the mic would help at all in this situation...

    This is huge issue for me!!

    I noticed with my daughter's iPhone 4s... she can video bands and the sound quality is very good no matter how loud they are. Somehow there's an automatic level control that kicks in.

    With my old Droid Charge .. anything above conversation level would overload the mic on videos. It was extremely annoying.

    With my Note 2.. its better... but still not nearly as good of video sound quality as my daughters iPhone.

    Kinda sucks because im a musician.. I like to video my bands... and I like to see other bands.

    I wish Samsung would issue a software update that would include a mic level control for video-ing. Im sure its possible.

    I saw Shinedown in Nashville last week and they were AWESOME!!!!!

    One of the reasons I bought the Note 2 was so I could take pictures and videos of the concerts I attend. I'm pleased with the videos visually, but the sound leaves a lot to be desired. It's very "tinny". I thought it may have been because I was standing too close to the speakers on the right side of the stage.
