If this international version had LTE for Tmo 'hidden' on it, to be unlocked via a radio flash I'd be on it in a heartbeat, but I plan on holding on to this beast for a while and don't want to be left out of high speed once Tmo LTE goes live. Keep hoping that I can find a new, warrantied Tmo Note 2, but no luck so far.
With a screen like that, what's the battery life like? My S2 has a horrible battery life. I'm a heavy netflix user so I don't expect my battery to last all day, but my battery will typically drain just by browsing and calling.
If you read reviews they are agree that battery life is outstanding for a smart device. Samsung used the second to biggest battery there is (they had plenty of space for it). If I owned a Note 2 I would expect outstanding battery life, better than S3 for sure.
I own an S2 and I know exactly what you're going through. If any smart phone could play your Netflix, this Note 2 would be it (and maybe iPhone 5).
I have had iPhones up to 4S, switched to GS2, loved it. Then switched to Note II, it's in a different level.
First off, it's not huge, it fits in my pockets find except for one pair of jeans where the pocket is too small for the whole phone to go in (all my pants are tight fitting but not extreme). Unless you are wearing jeans that crushes your balls (if you do, phone is least of your issues), you should be fine.
Second, the battery life is great. 3100maH is a lot of juice, I can use it 12 hours a day (LTE, wifi left on, auto brightness, BT off) and still have 15-20% left when I get home.
To give you an idea how great the screen size is, when I use multiwindow, it's like having 2 iphones side by side, that's how small the iphones are.
Oh, and not having to deal with iOS anymore. I always jailbreak my iphones and ipads but I got no need anymore. I can do everything I want out of the box with Android. And here's something about your user experience...last night it took me 2 hours to update my iPad2 to 6.1 using iTunes. The update was 88mb only. Few days ago, my carrier pushed the new jelly bean 4.1.2 to my phone and it was 245mb, it took only 20 min to download and install and I didn't even need to connect to anything.
And to those haters going on about the size. Have you even held and use one? If not, try and see for yourself instead of just being a sheep. I have had a lot of experience using both iphones and androids, and I have made my educated choice.
