Some would go for the usual LCD variants as they want "reality" image rendering. The color saturation for OLED displays could be tuned down with settings, anyway. I still like the magazine-like coloring of my Super AMOLED over a TFT LCD that discolors at angled viewing like in the Xperia Z. The Super LCDs are better than TFT.

clientelle, 25 Mar 2013@theneighbor, oh ok ty... note 8? is it the samsung tablet... moreGot mine Sandisk 64GB Ultra SHXC something like that hehehe,
which cost me around P2500 from a seller at TCP a few months ago. careful though coz a lot of rip offs/class A are floating around the grey market make sure you have an app that could test the read/write speed of the microSD, I think it should should be around 12MBPS maximum write speed for class 10 Ultra and 30MBPS max for read speed. For CLASS 10, just around 10mbps write speed. Mine is almost full (40GB) and never had any issues with slowdowns on accessing files on the SD card. I'm itching to root my precious Note2 device for directory binding but the 1 year Samsung warranty I have is making me difficult to go this route, also I fear the SDS issue would suddenly hit my phone, though my firmware has the latest update (4.1.2) which according to XDA the fix was included on those updates. Rooting reversible but with chances of a bricked phone not powering on for me to reverse the root/flash, I don't wanna take the risk. I used to root and flash custom ROMS on my Xperia phones (Ray and Arc S) both came from grey market.

Did someone say, You are using Iphone4 or Iphone4s seeing your Iphone5?

Same goes with Note 2 and other phabets. Thanks

Actually...Rooting makes the cellphone more fast, as Android Version used in Samsung/HTC bundles it with their custom applications. Real Taste of android is alot faster than what we see.

Rooting gives you a chance of getting a good rom and removes those bundle softwares, which uses unnecessary RAM(Processes and Threads).

Plus rooting gives your privlege rights. It's either way good or bad.

On the other way rooting can make your cellphone slow if you chooses wrong Custom ROM.

It's always advised to select ROM from good sources like Sammobile / androidcommunity.

Take notes from xda. They are really good in providing information about Custom ROMs and ways of Rooting the cellphone.

P.S: Rooting makes the warranty void. Thanks

Iam regreting not choosing Iphone 5 instead of NOTE 2 coz when i bought note 2 i didn't knew sam is working on a cheaper and identical version of it known as the Galaxy Grand....huh..!!! my face turns red when some one says...."hey is this Grand" atleast should have changed the shape of it... first it was identical to S3 now this Grand..... Iam really cautious now buying high end Samsung devices coz I don't want to buy a very expensive phone which will probably have an Identical cheap fellow in couple of days...

Note III most likely with a "latest" 5.9" OLED screen. Functionality the priority with the S Pen. Any other extra features like longer battery stamina a bonus.

Well just found the best battery saver which is working smoothly and superbly. Deep Sleep Battery Saver Pro. I got a standby discharge of 2% in 5 hours during night time, and overall increase in battery is huge.

Note is manufactured in many countries. including Vietnam.

It is genuine I think.

Kamote, 25 Mar 2013My phone was also bound for Middle East. How did you change the ... moreThe firmware you have for the Note II is just fine. The only reason why I changed was to update from my rooted 4.1.1 to the new 4.1.2 firmware - and then rooted it again. I just want a rooted Samsung Touchwiz firmware. The root gives my Note II extra capabilities than the regular restricted intentions of Samsung. Without a root, I can't erase or freeze some of the useless systems apps, or save complete apps data states.

Specific Samsung firmwares can be downloaded from SamMobile.com. Their sizes are usually 1GB+ worth. I used the utility program called Odin via PC to install it. You need to research how to do everything or you end up with a "bricked" device.

There is no pricing yet for the Note 8 and release is about late April. Definitely will get it as I see it as a portable Wacom Cintique to be doing some more digital paintings.
