Back after a week's banned, finally.... PA banned me for assuming and posting sensitive things, wow. Looks awesome to, but if only they got rid of them rounded Curves, and made it an Edge2Edge design, with along flat rear surface. Another big letdown by Samsung; why not E5250 DCorQC running at 2.0Ghz, 3Gb Ram, so you can open 3tabs, browse for 10 minutes needn't to worry about clearing the Ram. Also why not 1368-860, and 400ppi. Android owners allways looks for specs, o finally Mali400mp8 with 8cores overclocked to 527ghz.... Is that asking to much Samsung?

Y not give it wings and the ability to shoot blue force lightening.

I think you and I have discussed this before troll... You are asking WAY too much than is necessary. What you're asking would do 2 things, either harm your device and make it vulnerable to something along the lines of blowing up, or make it a brick, and it would just be easier to carry around an ultrabook instead. It sounds like you want your phone to replace your laptop.

OH YEAH! THE BATTERY WILL BE AMAZING! razr maxx like battery for a gigantic phone! THANKS samsung! :D

Yes but the bigger screen will probably make it not last as long. The razr maxx had a 4.3 inch screen with a 3300 mAh battery, while the note II has a 5.5 inch screen with a 3100 mAh battery.

But if processor and radio in Note2 is more efficient, it will offset drain from larger screen.

720p on a bigger screen, let's hope its SA+. If not, that would be disappointing.

i'm praying for SA+. They haven't put it on galaxy nexus, galaxy note, galaxy s3... Why are they sticking to pen tile now, when rbg is superior tech of the two and it was awesome on the gs2?

I think I remember Samsung saying that they used Pentile in their latest devices because it increases the lifespan of the display, because Pentile takes out 1/3 of a subpixel (that being the blue subpixel) and that subpixel harms the display or something... Though I could be entirely wrong.

thanks for the reply. I think i read something a while back about certain pixels dying faster than others. So you may be entirely correct.

LG's hope to regain market share will be crushed by this beast.

Soon another company will launch with a lousy phone with just a 4 inch screen.. Hmm 5.5 inches of splendor with removable memory & battery. YES please.. Sammy, well done. I'll get it November when Im eligible to upgrade. Maybe then they'll offer other colors, like grey, red, etc. Anyone not getting this and leaning towards the iphoney, you get what you pay for.

"and be available in a version with 16GB of internal storage in addition to the 32GB and 64GB that had been previously reported. " no removable memory.. sorry you couldnt read

Just because it has different memory models doesn't mean it won't have removable memory.

Gallito, Samsung knows people like removable storage. They did this with the s3, with 3 memory versions available, and a memory card spot up to 64 GB, making total possible memory 128 GB. And its all accessible as a USB stick through MTP protocol. Consider yourself informed
