Switch ???

I have the Note 2 , and like everybody else I think it is a really good phone. And like everybody else I think it is big, maybe too big, you can not use it with one hand and it barley fits in a pocket,
So now that the S4 has come out and I went to look at it in the store it seems like a good phone. Nice size.
Anyway I was wondering if anyone has switched or is also thinking of switching ......???
Although the S4 has been out, but I think there are still competitive [url= tphone-android-41-mtk6577-dual-core-3g-gps-4g -53-inch-120mp-camera-grey-p76874.html]Note N7100[/url]

Voice Command Activation

Is there a one-step way to activate Voice Command?

Example: with the I-phone, you simply push the lower center hardware button and you are immediately taken to Voice Command.

This is a terrific SAFETY and convenience feature. No more (1) push power button (2) swipe screen (3) press voice icon (or briefly push Search button) (4) Say 'hi Galaxy or press another icon.

4 steps instead of 1. Try that driving down the road.

If Apple has a patent on this, then pay them a royalty to use that safety/convenience feature.

Any other ideas or ways to a one-step method to get to Voice Command on Android?

Any other phones besides I-phone that provides this one-step feature?

I believe you double tap the home button to start S-Voice.

Battery Life - Real Life experiences

Anyone have real life battery experiences? I am VERY curious about this phone, but none of the reviews really talk about battery life.

Thoughts out there anyone??
Hum, Must not have looked very hard or even read any of the reviews, here on Phone Scoop or anywhere else. 3100mAh batt, Jealy Bean, HD Super AMOLED screen & quad core processor, all (low voltage usage). Up to 2 days, with moderate use & 7am - 11pm, w...
it is really bad battry life, i often play games less than 1 hours, and now i have replace this oem battery: ... »
It's better than S3.
According to my usage scheme (a lot of browsing, internet radios, games), I only got about 3.5 hours with S3, but I got 5-6 hours with GN2.
A side note: S3 can be very hot to touch at times, but GN2 is just a bit warm when playi...

I need a battery cover/door for my note II. Does anyone know if the NFC chip has to be in the cover or is it embedded in the phone? Thanks

Hard to believe ! !

1st went by att store today, Brownwood, Tx. Played with GNII for about an hour.Cked out several benchmarks. Cannot believe the gaming benchmark on Smartbench 2012 is only a little above 1600, which is pretty BADDD.
My 1.5ghz dual core quail comm GSIII is over 2600. Got preorder shipped today, b her on 9th. Mann.
Benchmarks dont mean crap. Unless your apple and want to win at someting

I mean really T-Mobile, after all you are not the best carrier of them all and on top of that you are going to sell this phone with the most expensive price??? Come on really??? And $369.00 after the mail in rebate. Wow just wow.
Their plans are less expensive, so they don't offer the same subsidy as the other carriers.
Really, you sound suprised that T-Mobile has the most expensive version, Besides its if you take the Value plan which ends up being cheaper the discounted price doesnt apply
It's one of the most feature-packed, high-end phones on the market. Its true cost on the open market (unlocked) is $700. It's not a cheap phone. It's not aimed at the price-conscious.
Troll much?

First ?

Complain about the price if you want , but right now can you get a GNII on another US carrier ? If you go to a T-Mobile forum the complaints are for selection ( premium handsets ) and expanded coverage. As far as price , would you complainers switch to T-Mobile if the price was lower ?
Ok, first of all I worked there. Second coverage is really based on where you live. Third it sucks for customers in the USA here in PR price plans are lower and coverage is getting better. Not where it should be but getting better. I learned while wor...

Aren't those LTE radios the same as what AT&T is using?
Yes. AT&T's and T-Mobile both will use AWS for LTE.

AT&T and T-Mobile's version are the same.
The AT&T model also supports LTE 850 and 1900.
Just for the record. Go to ATT wireless homepage & search for Galaxy Note II, it is now listed under new android phones, among others to b released soon ! Cool
