The problem is the Note 2 makes that guy look like he has small hands. And you know what they say about hand size...

As somebody with big hands I can't wait!

 

My little Galaxy S1 with the 4 in screen, I get mis-types all the time due to the small keys on the touch keys. Its much easier to type on the wife's S2 with the bigger screen. This lovely 5.5 inch screen with Swiftkey will be awesome!

 

Glad I held off on the S3 until the fall crop of phones came out.

that they have big feet? Gravity is such a bitch. :P

 

But i must admit, when I first saw that pic, first thing across my mind was wow the Note looks huge in that hand. Then realized it must be the hand. lol

I am really wanting the Note 2 but we don't have LTE here yet. What options do you have on Sprint if you still have your old phone and want to go back to using it on WIMAX? I could see my breaking down buying a Note 2 and want to switch back and forth a couple times before LTE shows up if I have a need for decent speed for a few days.

Looks like you can switch phones using the web anytime you want without a fee. I really thought there would be a activation fee of maybe $30 each time. I should have looked more before I posted.

I have 9 WiMax and LTE devices. I switch them out all the time.

I think I can swing $650. I even have someone willing to give me their upgrade if I give them my GS3. I might be willing to do that.

 

You would trade off your Galaxy S3??? Have you cleared this with the curator of the Robert M. Herron Museum of Modern Cellphones?

I don't want to. I want them all!!! I'm also kind of concerned that maybe the Note 2 won't be as good of a radio performer.

 

But if I couldn't swing the full price, I might be willing to do the trade.

What I usually do is create an RSS feed on eBay for a new device I want. I scan the buy-it-now options and wait until some ding dong decides they want a "quick sale" and list a buy-it-now for an usually low price.

 

Since getting LTE in Boston and seeing my EVO perform, well, poorly, I just picked up a brand new factory sealed mopho Q for 320 shipped. I am eager to test out a physical keyboard again, as well.

 

One week after note II comes out, I bet you will be able to buy-it-now for ~400 shipped :)

 

You can count on me buying a Note II off eBay for about 300-350 and selling my old phone for ~300. After fees, it's about a 75 dollar upgrade.

So I stopped by Best Buy today to see how a note fits in my hand. I can reach the whole screen except an area the size of a nickel in the top right corner (using my left hand) without having to stretch it. More worried about my pocket. Might have to go back to a holster.

 

Can't wait.

AT&T LTE is showing up here in Detroit now. Sprint better get moving or my Note II might be on a different network....

I was almost thinking the same thing but after running several speed test this weekend and getting an average of 1.8 on 3G, I think I will holdout for LTE to reach OKC.

Wonder if this thing will go up for preorder soon? US Cellular already has it up

The problem is that most likely the SIM card will not be removable meaning you will be forced to deal with Sprint's outrageous international rates abroad.

Yeah, it looks like it will the embedded type. On test models the area where the sim card would be is missing. (See my post in xda)

 

Still, even with that minor setback, I will get the Note 2. Every day i see more videos coming out of korea and just when I thought the device couldn't surprise me, it does.

 

Case in point,.. slow and fast motion video.

 

btw, the site sxtp has a image of the leaked FCC document for the Sprint Note 2. So that means it will be on the FCC site very soon.

I am not sure what I am going to do, I am really hoping that sprint/htc can figure out this lte issue but I would still prefer the evo because of that beautiful screen, I can't stand pentile at all. The funny thing is the pentile on the gnex didn't even bother me until I saw the screen on the evo. Anyway, not sure if this has been mentioned before but the note 2 isn't going to be pentile which should give it a huge improvement in screen quality and because of that I think I may end up with a note 2 if sprint/htc can't fix my evo issues. Its still not your standard rgb setup but its still better than pentile.

Just had a cursory look at the FCC docs and I'm left wondering, does the Note II not support SVDO? How bass ackwards would that be considering that the Galaxy S III supports SVDO?! At least SVLTE appears to be onboard...

With the dual antennas, i would be shocked if it didn't support SVDO

Wow that sucks, but I've never had an SVDO device before, so no biggie. I wish there was a dislike button

    • Thanks! I build non carrier compliant but still compliant machines so if you need one before T-Mo builds one I am here.     
    • I just found this out myself on the s10e. Download the Samsung Band Selection app and you can set it back to wifi if you want. Dumb that there is no menu option for it natively.
    • So I got the Pebble from Sprint, I'm waiting for the damn VoLTE to enable. I harassed Sprint and they said it is a limitation of the device (which they still can't explain why) and waiting is the only option. They also told me every time there is a power failure the wait for it to enable begins again.... really? Does anyone know how it works and why there is a 2-3 week lead up to VoLTE enabling? So now my voice calls drop down to 1x and I can't receive MMS when I'm on a call. No problem I thought, I'll just switch to wifi calling for now and I can still get MMS over LTE while I'm on a call. Not so fast. For some damn reason wifi calling doesn't work on my SM-G970U1 (unlocked s10e) when I'm connected to the Pebble. If I turn airplane mode on, wifi calling pops right up. If I unplug the pebble, wifi calling pops right up. That leads one to believe the Pebble is preventing wifi calling from activating for some reason. However, my dad's LG V20 has absolutely no issue using wifi calling while connected to the Pebble and can therefore receive MMS just fine. Do you have any idea what in the hell could be causing this? Is this some whack setting on the s10e which I'm not seeing? Phone has the latest updates, 911 is updated, I did PRL and profile updates. I'm stumped....   UPDATE: So I found the answer in the wifi-calling menus and googling that took me to a post here. Apparently starting in April of 2020, Sprint decided it knows what is best for you so it sets calling over the network to preferred and only if signal is too weak will it default to wifi calling. There is no visible option in the phone to change that setting. I had to download Samsung Band app to set it to prefer wifi and bam.... now it is enabled. I'd still like to know WTF the Pebble is doing with VoLTE though.
    • LTE or LTE B? would be good.  I personally prefer to know that it is unknown.  Thanks!
