    I sold back my S2 so I do not notice the lag on start up because i dont have my other phone to compare it to. Its a bit nit picky but I could see how it would be annoying in comparison. Also from reading the reviews I think the Note 2 definitely does not support SVDO and that was one of the few negatives I read. Whether it has a capability to even do so is anyone's guess. I too was also bummed about the multiwindow feature as well. Should be out of the box.

    Can Sammy fix wake up lag on SGN2? They sure couldn't on ET4G.
    I'm thinking this has something to do with exynos chipset / cdma hardware clash of some sort.

    I spoke with Sprint tech support directed them to lag video and their investigating.

    I recommend everyone else do the same.

    You can also tweet @sprintcare and @SamsungMobileUS

    Its a sweet device and deserves attention on getting wakeup lag fixed so don't slack!

    Why does the phone always reset the "keep wifi during sleep" option? I keep setting it to only when plugged in, but when I look at it again, it's reset to always. Anyone else have that issue?

    With my GS2 (ET4G) this lag was caused by the use of microSD cards. Whenever a microSD card is installed in my phone, there is a HORRIBLE wake up lag between pressing the power button and the screen illuminating- exactly as the video in the OP's post shows. If I remove the microSD card there is no lag whatsoever. Not sure if that relates to this at all, but thought it was worth mentioning...

    Yea i noticed that too. When i got the phone there was no noticeable lag. but after putting the SD card in from my GS2 It does turn on slow. Bu after a few times of turning on and off it speeds up. Maybe theres some kind of deep standby mode to save battery life. What bugs me more though is the fact that we can't use data during calls. Now your saying on 3g but can we use 4g and talk ? It still socks that we can't use 3g but if on 4g we can at least its something.

    I wouldnt call this a bug per se, but when you bring the notification screen down, in all the videos Ive seen on the N2 there were more options at the top (which you could get to by scrolling). I only have wifi bluetooth gps sync screen rotation. And its not scrollable to get to other options or customizable from what I see.

    And on the lock screen, there is no way, from what I can see, to change where the clock is located and where weather is located. I could change to top and bottom of screen on my SGS2 and this was particularly helpful when you use pictures as lock screen so you dont have a face underneath the weather and what not. just a mild irritation!

    No the phone has svlte which will allow for voice/data over 4G. It just doesn't have svdo which allows for it over 3g. My partner has the sgs3 on sprint and can do voice/data over 3g. I'm jealous. Lol.

    Nah unfortunately with GN2 wake lag occurs even with with mSD card out unlike ET4G.
    This issue is very popular with Sammy devices.....especially ones in Sprint lineup.
    It would be nice if master hacker could figure out fix but by the looks that will never happen.
    Hopefully Sprint/Samsung make fix available soon

    hmm maybe something to work with hack wise.
    Ive found wakeup lag doesn't occur when device is fully charged plugged into charger.
    Give it a try be amazed how GN2 owners on other networks feel waking up device

    Anyone else having trouble with GPS in outside apps? Works perfectly fine with Maps and any other pre-installed apps but all other I've tried fail to obtain a location.

    Ive found bug when setting up voicemail.
    During call screen goes black not allowing me to enter numbers.

    Update
    It appears to be caused by light sensor being radically sensitive.
    Cast a shadow during call entering numbers screen turns off

    I have noticed that the screen goes dull, like it blinks when watching a video and the screen is about to rotate, after the rotation, the dullness goes away. , I didn't have this on my s3. Also, I can't seem to get smart rotation to work. My screen always rotates.

    I am wondering if the lag when turning the phone on is caused by that other new feature, forgot the name of it, where with the phone laying on a flat surface you can check your notifications by swiping the hand over the phone (to activate the proximity sensor). The screen will light up and shows your your missed calls, and other notifications. Just a wild guess on my part, I don't have my Note 2 yet. People complained about home button lag on the S3 and the culprit was the home button waiting to see if you will double tap it to bring up SVoice. The lag was cured by turning the double click S Voice feature off.

    That feature has been hit or miss for me so far (made me look stupid while trying to show isheep friends) lol and as far as the wake up lag I my note 2 has been stupid fast and no bugs or lag of any kind... still waiting for sprint to push the firmware update for multiscreen.

    Good to hear. Maybe it's a case of the famous "do a factory reset before you even start setting it up" procedure to make sure the phone works right? I think that feature only works if the phone is sitting on a table or other flat surface. Holding it in your hand will cause it to not work or work only on occasion?

    I have trouble with Smart Rotation too. I wear glasses. If I take my glasses off it still have problems if I hold the phone 8" from my face. If I hold it 12"+ it works 'slightly' better.

    I gave up and use the pull down and switch to Screen Rotation to off. Less frustrating and works 100% of the time.
