The Galaxy SIII comes on 16, 32GB versions too, and they have have removable memory. Sorry, as much as you like to say Samsung is copying Apple, Samsung is always one step ahead, which is listening to their customers. Something Apple doesn't do, at least until it hurts their market share.

720p 5.5" screen, 1.6GHz quad-core, 3100mAH battery, Android Jelly Bean, 16, 32, 64GB & more to come. You really think this is just bark? C'mon gallitoking you really can't think that? If the Galaxy Note II is just bark than the iPhone 5 will be a spit up hairball. lol

Show me the innovation in iPhone? Pureview, MeeGo, WebOS, BB10, now that's innovation. Actually, you might call iPhone 4's special way of holding INNOVATIVE, and up for patenting.

Jellybean says Hi! Google Now alone is a big plus for Android..

Yeah, the iPhone is so far behind you have to say that the iPhone is held in different standard. Almost everything in this phone kills the iPhone. Yes, it's not very innovative, but compared to what Apple is doing, this is pretty much innovation. Jellybean VS iOS 6 720P VS 640P 5.5 inch VS 4.0 Yes, I'm comparing to what the new iPhone is supposed to be, and it still loses.

gallitoking, a 1.6GHz is not innovation YES, but it's unprecedented. Also 720p is not innovation but a phone with a HUGE 5.5" display is unprecedented. Also the scribe pen is innovation not the norm. You could never do what the scribe pen can do on older phones with styluses. Android 4.1.1 is the HUGE innovation! Google Now is by FAR the best thing to happen to the smartphone in a VERY long time. If you haven't had the pleasure of using Google Now please do & see what you are missing. If you are so into innovation I hope you are not looking at Apple for it! Apple STOPPED innovating 3 years ago after the iPhone 4 was released. Since then they have been too busy to innovate because they are buying tech & taking companies to court. iPhone 4S NOT innovation. iPhone 5 NOT innovation based on the Chinese copy, IF indeed it turns out to be like that. iOS6 NOT innovation, C'mon it looks STILL like the original iOS from the first EDGE iPhone. Siri NOT innovation, it was bought from Nuance. It might be innovation if you like mustangs that is. lol

what I don't get is why bring Apple to a Android article?? haters speak more about Apple than actual consumers. please cut it down.. there is enough Apple articles already and stick to the Note II... SAE look I know this was the toy you were drooling about but let me show you what I mean in a example... the movie "The Hangover" best movie ever caught everyone by storm... "The Hangover part II" not so much exactly and that's what will happen here.

Because you're a huge iFan. And when an iFan mentions innovation anywhere (or rather the lack of), they are always referring to Apple, as if they're the most innovative around. We're just here to show you how innovative Apple really is (or rather the lack of) compared to Samsung.

gallitoking, you must be having a bad day. lol I didn't say this...."that's were you are wrong you see the iphone is held by different standards than Android.." YOU DID. You brought Apple into this Android conversation. That is why I answered your comment. lol

No one can keep up with Android, unless your well off, or with a high income. Cause they launch a new phone every 6month's, where Apple launches a new phone every 14 to 18 month's. So what standard's are you talking about, your talking nonsenses!

is just that Android is about releasing different devices and if it works keep releasing to use the device momentum.. big screens powerful cores and a new Android version that's getting better to reach devices. that doesn't work in Apple. . here they pick a feature and exploited, and Apple is no hurry to bring out huge screens or with dual, triple or quad cores.. no need for that.. that's why you cant judge an Android on Apple standards and vice versa

Yea, I'm getting one... The current note is too Laggy... Yea, it just lags all over the place. I got the Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM and it is fast and I have only seen one time with some lag. Way better than my current Sam Note Lag... In my opinion all vendors just need to upgrade to JB for their users. It is a much better Android experience.!!! I have the Samsung Galaxy Note right now and with Jelly Bean I will get the new one, cause I'm not going to wait for them to take their sweet time to upgrade the current note to JB... Plus rounded sides, and all the other upgrades, I will get it. Now, does anybody want to buy the old one?

Nice phone but i hate how they cant style it differently then the GS3// Samsung phones look all alike. This is still a very nice piece of technology.

Samsung knows it has something special. No one else has anything even close, and when they come out with phablets they will all look like followers. Question is: Did the original Note fill the need for this and the sales disappoint because everyone who wants one is still on year one with the original? Or did the original just show the hunger for this bad boy? What is the over/under on sales? If the original sold about 10-12 million, want to put it at 11 million? Place bets, folks.......
