Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Recommended Posts

Damn it, personally I make use of having svdo so if the note 2 doesn't support it then no note for me. Its like right when you think you have the perfect device, there is that one thing that makes you throw your hands in the air in frustration.

EXACTLY!!! Why can no manufacturer make a complete device?

 

LG makes the Viper with SVDO and then the LG Eclipse/Optimus G doesn't appear to have it. Samsung makes the Galaxy S III with SVDO now the Note II apparently doesn't have it. Why are these manufacturers going backwards with the specs??? I still plan on getting the Note II, but this is a bit of a buzzkill.

Nowhere in that article does it state anything about Oct 28 except for the title. And where on xda does it state the date?

Looking at a few more articles on that site, I'm seeing a whole bunch of nothing. I always take sites like that with a grain of salt, but not I've got a handful of grains

The xda thread is linking to the same article, to which I state again, other than the title, there is nothing in the article itself that indicates a Oct 28 deployment.

 

@ AJ, thanks

AJ,

 

I read the article, greatly appreciate your info.

 

You said in the article that the lack of svdo due to the inclusion of wcdma was "curious". I can see some people running with that but .... whats the most likely business reason? Internationally capable device? Minimalizing customization charges from samsung? A shift away from svdo completely ( that we will see on future devices) to minimize 3g stress ?

I would think the number one reason is minimizing customization from the standard Note 2, with a much smaller secondary reason of international roaming fees

I love the note's ergonomics, but the exclusion kills my urge to sell the gs3 and pay the difference. Im actually a little bit glad this happened :) I will now attempt to wait out the gs4 or a great device with data access on the other bands.

Well, I just got confirmation that this will be my next device. My tf101 was sent to Asus for rma and it's going to be over $200 fix it. Just need to sell my GS2 and come up with the rest...

we are two weeks from the "launch party," very surprised that there is not a preorder available yet.

 

Edit in:

 

Samsung itself says mid-November launch for all US Carriers

Im not sure what the lack of SVDO means to me in daily use. Does it mean if I am using Waze for example receiving a call will be blocked or will I be able to take the call but data to Waze and everything thing else will stop while talking? If I am on a call and open the Web browser will the call drop? Does it matter if the connection is CDMA or LTE? If using data breaks it as a phone that may be a deal breaker for me. Using the phone as phone and stopping data while talking is a minor inconvenience.

Voice always takes priority over data. Any app will stop its CDMA/EVDO data session for a call to be made/received. Once you are in an LTE area, voice and LTE data will work at the same time. SVLTE is included, SVDO is not.

I know they're kinda kitschy, but, you know those Flip Covers for the GS3? I want a N2 and one of those. Real bad.

There are no small fonts, only small members.

Very, very, very x100 excited to preorder my GN2.... Really hope the release is 10/24... Still no date announced though. If i have to wait until November, so be it. Watched countless reviews on it.

There is a note in the GN2 thread over at the Sprint Community that some people have been able to preorder over the phone? twospirits is very active in those forums, maybe he can shed some light.

 

That is the first I've seen/heard of a successful preorder.

    • I just got that same email for my Magic box that has been on Ethernet backhaul for 9+ months (I checked and the serial number matched that unit). It was still on Ethernet when I got the email, since I speed tested faster than Sprint's nearby macros (they're fairly congested even on B41). So they're just blanket sending it out to everyone, even people who are already off of LTE backhaul.      
    • T-Mobile must've heard my complaints about n41 because I ran into it a bunch of times today in Manhattan and in Brooklyn. I've also seen a bunch of sites that have n41 panels installed but that aren't active. A few of the sites with inactive n41 also have those new Ericsson AIR 3446 antennas that support mid-band FDD 5GNR. Fun fact for people wanting to test n41. If you're on the Prospect Expressway in Brooklyn, there is a site that is eye-level with the highway that has n41. Here is a speed test from it and take a look at that signal strength and upload!
    • Yep and even buy dishes AWS spectrum. SoftBank has the money for all that Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • I 100% agree. Everything this man had invested in had gone to shit and the. Looks to sell off shares. At this point I believe he doesn’t know what he’s doing. What Sprint really needed was someone who actually cared Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
