so much for 5 inch is too big, who would buy it. etc etc.

We reported earlier in November that just over a month after its launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 had sold over 3 million units worldwide. Now just a few weeks later that number has jumped up to 5 million sales worldwide, according to Samsung. It's a pretty great rate of sales, and we're sure that those will only continue to increase as the holiday buying season kicks off. Especially considering that the Note 2 is now available on all major carriers here in the states.
Samsung notes (pun intended) that the device is outpacing its predecessor -- the original Note -- in sales at this point. In its previous sales release, CEO of Samsung Mobile JK Shin indicated a sales goal of 20 million units for the Note 2.

It's the best smartphone in the market! I got one... It's blazing FAST, 2 gig RAM, the software is SUPERB, it's beautiful and feels much better in hand than the Note 1 and the screen is the best in size now that it's slightly stretched up with 16:9 instead of almost 4:3 from the original.

I'm totally in love. It's almost a laptop! :wub:

I bought one Wednesday and I returned it today and exchanged it for an S3. The reasons:

1. The Note II was just too big to carry around
2. The screen was not as bright and sharp as the S3.
3. The text messenger UI was laggy. The S3 for some reason is not.
4. The Home Button was also laggy. The S3 did not have that problem.
5. The Email UI was doing funny things earlier today. Flashing and stuff. Not good.

Maybe in the future I will get a Galaxy Note 3 or 4 or 5. We'll see down the road.

1. The Note II was just too big to carry around
You gave it just 2 days? Not enough time. I thouoght it was too big initially, but within a week you'd be used to it and the S3 would seem tiny in comparrison.

2. The screen was not as bright and sharp as the S3.
My Son has an S3, I have a Note 2, my screen is as bright and in fact clearer than his in everyway.

3. The text messenger UI was laggy. The S3 for some reason is not.
Absolutly no problem what-so-ever with the text message UI. Fast and flowing.

4. The Home Button was also laggy. The S3 did not have that problem.
Absolutly no problem what-so-ever with the Home button here.

5. The Email UI was doing funny things earlier today. Flashing and stuff. Not good.
Absolutly no problem what-so-ever with the email UI. Neither the Gmail app version nor the Samsung app version. Good.

I've had mine since October and I've had absolutly NONE of those problems you describe above.

Lucky you.


Or maybe unlucky you. Could have been a bad phone or something. Almost everyone who gets a Note II loves them.
