Samsung GALAXY Note to appear at T-Mobile?

0. phoneArena 21 Apr 2012, 13:33 posted on

There are a few developments that point to a variant of the Samsung GALAXY Note heading to T-Mobile including a User Agent Profile string that seemingly points to the existence of such a device; with the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certification calling this device a phone, it looks like Sammy's phablet is coming to T-Mobile...

if its coming with the S3 crapdragon like the ATT version, u can throw it back. Exynos 4212/4210.. or at least an S4 at bare minimum.

Snapdragon gets better battery life. You can look for yourself at anandtech on the SG2 on tmobile vs the world varient.

Sorry but i would rather have a far more powerful processor than an hour or two extra battery life. Chargers arent an issue for me. Laggy unresponsive processors are.

Performance is roughly the same since the snapdragon is clocked at 1.5 GHz vs. 1.2. Course if they use the s4 that blows theirs out of the water.

performance is still superior on the exynos, even at 1.2. And the exynos at 1.5 is just ever so less powerful than an S4 at 1.5. Ill take proven performance.

do you have a link to this article? i just did a bunch of keyword searches on anandtech with nothing at all comparing american vs international versions.

i cant find anything directly comparing the phone's battery performance on a general search either, but i did find this:

http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/09/29/video-telus-sams ung-galaxy-s-ii-x-review/

which directly shows performance and the big advantage that the exynos chip has over the S3 in a system with the exact same set up.. so a nice apples to apples chip comparison can be done.

But here is Phone Arena's spec pages:
SGS2 Hercules/Skyrocket (S3) - 1850mah battery, 7 hours talk time
SGS2 (exynos) - 1650mah battery, 9 hours talk time.

And if you read the review, they brag that the exynos version gets way better battery life than advertised and was one of the longest battery life smartphones they have ever tested. Find that on the S3 version's review.

http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S- II_id5106

CASE CLOSED. :)

oh, and for giggles, here is the HTC One S with the S4 and 4.3 inch amoled screen and similar set up to the S2

battery 1650mah, 7 hr talk time.

exynos wins against the 28nm S4 that people are fawning over.

I tried looking for, couldn't find it. It is the best comparison you could reference.

Woo hoo! I hope this is true. Then I can have a digital sketchbook without the hideous AT&T logo. I wonder if the T-Mobile version will have any external or internal changes?

I was planning on getting an AT&T version to use on T-Mobile soon, but now I'll definitely wait.

I swear to god, if this happens, then that means there is a possibility that all the carriers except for Verizon will have the Note. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Damn you Verizon! Damn you to hell!

there was a rumor of a VZW version as well. Besides, Sprint doesnt have the Note either.

Apparently, there was an article on this site this past week that there is an indication that Sprint may be next in line to get it. They have been rumoring that VZW will get it but nothing said as of yet. I signed the 5,000 signature petition to get the Note on VZW and now they want 10,000 signatures. Just too greedy.

You don't have to damn VZW. You only have to quit this sucker if he never ever listen. I'm counting that day, 8 months from now. I'll be a free to join either At&t or Tmobile (if they should carry this phone). By the way, I've tested Note at BestBuy today, I got 4.5 mb down, and 11 mb up. Not bad at all. It is more than enough for anyone to surf the internet...

Robinate, Amen to that! Agreed 1 million percent. Here's the thing. I have been a loyal customer for 10 years back to the Bell Atlantic days. While I love the service, and my contract ends with them in October, I am going to give VZW till years end and I swear to god if I don't see it, I'm switching over to AT&T. T-Mobile is bad. Don't get it. My cousin just got out of it and he hated every second of that company.

This would be awesome, I've been waiting (and hoping) for T-mobile to pick up the Note since I first heard about it. Unfortunately, T-mobile is one of the slowest at picking up anything new, so I knew it would be awhile. This is the most exciting news I've had in months!!

Tick.....Tick.....Tick.....(looking at my watch)

Gee, it's been almost 4 months and it's pretty apparent to me that other companies like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint are all releasing great phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note, Lumia 900, HTC One series, LG Optimus, and the ultimate questions is:

What has Verizon released this year? Samsung Brightside=Crap LG Lucid= Crap
Samsung Gusto 2= Crap. And yet I wonder 2 things: 1. For a company that claims to be the #1 cell phone company in the country, this is what they have to offer? Why hasn't Verizon picked up the Note but yet ever other cell phone company amongst the major 4 have it or are rumored to get it. 2. I don't know who's dumber, is it the Verizon who gives the customers what they think is best for them or is it the the subscribers who put up with this s**t who should demand the Note or better but don't say a word and take this abuse and gross competence? The bigger question is, After 10 years, why am I still with this company. Ugh. I swear to god, I am giving Verizon till years end to get the Note or an equivalent to it. If not, I'm liberating myself and jumping ship.
