Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Recommended Posts

Epic 4G. Samsung took forever to push updates out for it and the RF performance on it was lacking. Then there was the inexplicable inability to 1900MHz roam bug that certain Samsungs had (have?). I got my daughter a Moment and that was just the biggest piece of crap ever produced IMO. Even before my Epic experience, I've never been overly impressed with Samsung radios especially compared to Motorola. My old lady just ordered a Photon Q yesterday (for $99.99, good price imo) so I'll see how that performs though I personally have little desire to buy one. Moreover, the recent Motorola event led me to conclude that they're still pretty much all about verizon so I have to continue to look at HTC, LG and Samsung. The LG Eclipse looks intriguing but at present doesn't appear to support SVDO which is a bit of a head-scratcher. HTC may or may not have 5" phone coming out that seems to have impressive specs, but it appears headed to verizon. So if this Note 2 comes to Sprint and there's little else appealing on the horizon I'll probably give it a whirl.

You learn quickly young skywalker. Vader is pleased. ;)

btw, Just think of that post over there as a Corbert report type of post. :D

 

But don't feel bad, although I got the post the first time, I did not notice the image link at the end until I re-read it the second time. But that image is not of the hands on phone. That image only has 3 trace tags, the phone in question had way more. But the pics will never be shown since it will be traced and get the source into problems. And no, I don't have the pics and even if I had them, I won't upload them just for that reason alone. We need to keep these guys secret, otherwise leaks like this won't happen in the future.

How do they get a hard disc drive in that phone? That would be pretty thick and easily damaged for a cell phone... lol

I don't expect any devices to have LTE 800 this year. If something shows up before 2013, then it is a new development to Sprint. As of last month, Sprint believed the first LTE 800 devices would not become available until Spring 2013.

Hmmm I just read that Samsung has said the S4 should be out "No later than March" would be nice if it had LTE800...

Who am I kidding just waiting for any LTE is killing me, I can't survive until March.

According to BGR quoting a Samsung pressor- Sprint release by mid-November:

 

http://www.bgr.com/2012/09/19/galaxy-note-ii-release-date-att-verizon-sprint/

 

"DALLAS — September 19, 2012 — Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) – the No.1 mobile phone provider in the United States1 – will launch the Galaxy Note® II in the U.S. with five major carriers by mid-November. Exact pricing and retail availability will be announced by each of the carriers."

 

Just how stupid will I look with 2 cell phones? I don't think I care! Evo & Note for all your needs...

Additional info. Some of the people at BGR make me cry.

 

I think I'm going to be going with the Note 2. I've been holding out and holding out...almost went with Evo LTE, then the S3...but I think the Note 2 is going to win for me.

It is also officially announced at Sprint here and here, but it also states "International Voice and Data capable with GSM/UMTS/CDMA networks"

 

It that is true, then this is a world phone and I am about to have a heart attack.

Please let it be true.

Please don't have a heart attack, but it sure looks to be true. Phone Arena's specs page is showing GSM world capabilities as well as Sprint's announcement, so I'm going to say that it's true if it's coming directly from Sprint.

My drool factor for this phone just went up 10 fold. Need to find OT at work to get more money. :)

 

I might need to break some servers :)

Is this release likely to bring down the price of the SIII some more? And what happened to the 2013 release date for the 5.5 inch device? Could it be something from LG or HTC?

On the roadmap image I assumed that the 2013 5.5" device was the Note 2 after being announced in Nov/Dec but sources in androidforums stated much sooner. The press release confirms it. But i wouldn't doubt another 5.5" device might be coming in 2013.

Yes, I believe LG and HTC are making or planning on making phones that big.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
