Big News: Report says 5.5 inch Samsung GALAXY Note II coming to Verizon

0. phoneArena 09 Sep 2012, 19:44 posted on

Verizon customers did not have a shot at the Samsung GALAXY Note and when the sequel was announced, it wasn't clear if Big Red would be getting the son of phablet; a leaked screenshot shows the SCH-i605 which is said to be Verizon's version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Ok this is looking so GREAT for me. I am DEFINITELY looking at a phablet this year. To me it's between this mystery HTC phablet with the 1080p HD screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the LG Optimus G & the new Google Nexus'.

This year where it's at is Verizon. The BEST 4G LTE coverage with the worlds hottest & best phones. Looks like Christmas is coming early to Verizon & I can't wait to get my hands on all these devices to see what is truly the BEST phone of 2012.

Verizon had to get the Note II if it wanted to reamin the best wireless company. Im with AT&T and I cant wait for the Note II to be released.

I said months ago that Verizon had to get the Note, but the Note II would make it more noticeable. Im not biased when it comes to "who gets what phone" or "who has the best coverage" because its about preference

I agree with you about preference, BUT overall it's very well understood that Verizon hands down has the best 3G & 4G LTE coverage in America.

I have been with Sprint, AT&T, & Verizon has the best coverage hands down in BOTH my travels in the U.S. & where I live. Also Verizon has the most 4G LTE coverage, more than all other carriers in the U.S. combined.

+1

Every carrier has an advantage and disadvantage over the other so it depends on how much crap you're going to deal with lol!!!

Verizon's Galaxy Nexus getting Jelly Bean would be better news.

Verizon collapsing would top all of that news.

As a Verizon Nexus owner you should already have Jelly Bean. If you have enough energy to complain then you have enough energy to do it yourself. Ultimately it's Verizon fault that official Jelly Bean is not released yet. Don't blame it on Google or Samsung.

I am blaming it on Verizon, I shouldn't HAVE to root, my carrier should be rolling out updates in a timely fashion. That is my point, I should NOT HAVE to root, I know how to do it, but I should NOT HAVE to do it.

Put your Nexus to use how a Nexus device is supposed to be use. Root it. Then you will be able to get Jelly Bean for it.

But the point is, I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ROOT. My carrier should update the device in a timely manner.

The fact that I should not have to root seems to go over everyone's head.

so what's your point? if you want JB, get JB. do you think there's not GSM Nexus owners that are rocking AOKP, MIUI or CM10 ROM's out there?

Nothing like having to decide between the Note II and HTC's competitor. Both of them on VZW! Decisions, decisions.

This is what we should expect from SS after GS3: any flagship device will be available from all major carriers unchanged.

but of course. i would expect the western launch of the Note II to mirror that of the SIII's. Samsung bringing it with 2GB of RAM and their Exynos 4412 along with LTE/HSPA+ connectivity is nothing short of a great move. my Dad will probably go from his MAXX to this but the court is still out for me since i really don't want a Phablet. so far it's looking like it's between the Razr HD duo for me unless a Motorola Nexus reels it's head in which case i'll be getting that.

Hey King, so here's the deal: No excuses, I said a while back that if something like this comes to fruition, I would owe you a public apology. So just to let you know, and I don't know how many people keep up with what you have to say, but if Verizon does officially get the Note 2, then I owe you an apology. If Verizon gets that mystery HTC device, then I owe you an apology. The LG INtuition doesn't count because lets be honest, it's not in the same league as the other 2. I'm a man of my word. I still think that your attitude is rather cocky in more ways than one but that is irrelevant when it comes to this subject matter.

that was rather gracious of you Wildmanfan and i would accept your apologies. yeah, nobody cares about the Intuition, it's the Phablet adopted stepchild. well if you can find it in yourself to make a public apology then i'm sure i can find it in myself to keep my attitude in check. c:

Not sure what happened between the 2 of you (bromance gone bad, perhaps :) ), but I'm guessing this is a case of hating on a man for just for being good at his trade. Kurog sure seems to know what he's talking about. We all have our own opinions as to what we like, so disagreements are going to happen. But Kurog has his facts straight. AND, the man will help a brother out when asked. He's shared his advice when I asked for it. We're all a family of phone dorks here. Let's embrace that fact and be civil and respectful with each other. As Jesus would say, "Don't hate. Congratulate."

King, I promised you an apology and I will deliver for sure. I wouldn't break that for you. But when I really think about it, it doesn't make sense because here you have the Intuition, the Note 2, and the HTC 5" phablet. There's just too much competition. The reason why I think the Note 1 did so well is that AT&T didn't really give it's subscribers a choice. Whereas, Verizon is going to give their subscribers many choices.
But you do have to give AT&T a certain amount of credit for having the gall or brass to introduce something innovative like that.
Now I'm torn. My Samsung Fascinate on VZW is on it's last legs. I need a phone now. I was thinking about getting the Note 1 on AT&T off ebay, not signing a contract, and then getting the Note 2 when it comes out. OR, getting a VZW phone from ebay to hold me off till the end of the year, and then getting one of the phablets. I don't know.

For the record, your attitude is alright. No worries man.

this phone has 0 chance of being banned by Apple. comparing the Note to the iPhone would be like comparing a Stove to a Microwave.
