And that's just AT&T ROMS.

But there are some cons. I list these considering how expensive this phone is.
1. Build quality is a bit iffy. Pick up a Galaxy S3 or Note 2 and compare to a Nokia Lumia 920, HTC One X or iPhone. Premium feel is subjective. Personally I don't like that my back cover creaks when I handle the phone and the buttons feel like they won't last the life of a two year contract. Before I get flamed, yes it's nice to be able to remove/swap the battery, I suppose.
2. The screen, while big and colorful, is not perfect. The Note 2 is WAY better than the PenTile arrangment on the S3 (so gross) and the colors are pretty punchy. However, AMOLED does not satisfy me as much as a good LCD (do yourself a favor and go see an HTC One X). There is some sort of latency/lag when scrolling slowly thru text and it drives me nuts. To be fair, I read a ton on my phone so maybe I'm picky.
3. If you like to try custom ROMS, look elsewhere. Yes, there are ROM out for the Note 2, but development is slow. I have read this is due somewhat to Samsungs poor documentation and support for Exynos chips (remember,the S3 has a Snapdragon processor). If you want to use the Spen, the ROM support is VERY limited. TouchWiz is not bad, but it ain't great.
It's not a bad phone and I don't regret buying it. But next time I will probably stick with a Nexus device.

It was expensive and it is designed by Samsung for the phone but I am disappointed. It takes away from the phone function and doesn't seem to make up for it very well in terms of protection.

I also have the xtremeguard screen protector. The S pen leaves marks on that screen protector, which drives me insane.

anyone have recommendation on screen protectors.
I've used Zagg and Skinomi before but based on my research seems like S pen doesn't work well with those.
I've heard of ismooth which is a dry protector and Just Like Glass (JLG) which is a wet protector.
anyone have any recommendation on strength/smoothness.
