    Default What is Missing from the GN2?

    Okay, I absolutely love my new Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

    Now, what do you think would make the GN2 even better. For me;

    1. 1080p screen
    2. Improved sunlight viewing
    3. Stock Android option

    2 and 3 would be good. 1, I think, is just so unnecessary on a 5.55" screen.... or anything under 40-50 someodd inches.

    Improved sunlight viewing would be a tremendous help!

    My HTC Fuze (WinMo os) automatically read aloud my text messages---a terrific feature while driving. I've missed it ever since I abandoned my Fuze for the Inspire.

    I terribly wish for an option to change the blue and yellow cartoon bubbles to a normal black and white text message convo.

    @ Martinezma99
    Thanks for starting this thread! I'm curious to know what wonderful features other Note II users wish for . . .

    I will comically say that what's missing from the Note 2 is, for me, the entire phone because Verizon hasn't released it yet darn it.

    You may already be aware, but in case you or others are not, you can customize the text message bubbles and backgrounds.

    No, I didn't know that! How did I miss the MENU for messaging? Thank you SO much. So now I know where to find the text templates and spam message blocking too.

    So, can someone please tell me about the MMS creation mode for composing text messages? (Perhaps that contains the mystery of why I can't send or receive pics in text messages.)

    One setting option is :
    Select a creation mode
    Restricted
    Warning
    Free
    The default is Free. Should I change it in order to send/receive pics?

    And when Verizon does release it, the only thing missing will be the home button. :-P

    Correct but at least it has the magic Verizon button that when pressed super cool things happen maybe?

    I think the 1080P Screen would be GREAT and certainly better outdoor/sunlight viewing is VERY important, after all, a great idea may come to you outdoors! I think the "skins" add some functionality, especially with the Note/S-Pen. I'd like to see less plastic and more accessories. I wish Verizon would have gotten it earlier, but I am happy we are at least getting this Note.

    how?

    @baygolf
    From Messaging, touch MENU, then Settings.
    Bubbles options are the first feature in Settings.

    Things missing for me

    1. SVDO talk and use data at the same time.
    2. Holster mode. This is a blackberry trick that when your phone is in its holster it behaves differently bases on what you want it to do. It is awesome

    Um, missing? Really? No phone is perfect. No phone has everything that every user wants. I just am amazed that people want to dwell on what this phone doesn't have, which is miniscule in comparison to the things it does have. Ok, I suppose when I'm getting bored with the Note 2 in a year or two and starting to get itchy for something new, I'll see how there are things that newer phones have that might add up to a big difference compared to the Note 2. Even then, given that probably all of these future phones will not have the screen size or stylus, they will still be lacking in some big ways from the Note 2. But for now anyway, there's nothing out there that comes close. If you are all about stock Android, then the Note 2 isn't for you, or you can root. I've yet to see anywhere that Google Wallet can be used or why I need it over using my credit card. As far as SVDO, I've also yet to want to browse the web while talking to someone. It's distracting enough when someone calls me and I'm in front of my PC - I have to physically get up and go somewhere so that I won't start reading or doing something else online and forget to listen to the person on the other end, lol! I don't think I need that temptation on the go!

    Seen many a post where people have said the talk and data at same time works, at least on Verizon using the Note2.

    This may be true for LTE (4G). The Note has this capability but does not have the capability to do voice and data when the data is 3G - something that the Galaxy S3 can do.

    A native kickstand! That's the only thing I'd add. I use it all the time on my Thunderbolt and am going to really miss it moving to the Note 2. (No kickstand cases for me as I don't like cases, prefer naked. ) I did get the Samsung spare battery charger though that doubles as a stand, so all is not lost!

    Thanks. Looked at em, but don't like the idea of sticking something directly on the phone like that. I think it looks bad as well and would interfere with my Monaco vertical pouch. I'd rather go with a kickstand case (as much as I dislike cases).

    I would like the next Note to have this 1ms latency technology. I think it will greatly improve the S-Pen experience.
