    Default Shocked at the response to N2 in public

    I have only had my "White" Note 2 for 3 weeks now, but every time I am in public and someone sees me using this I get questions. Most people are shocked by the size and also how clear and vibrant the screen is. I get asked, is that a tablet or a phone? When I tell them it is both they ask for a quick run down...then I get the "oh I want that phone statement". One guy this week had just gotten a new phone and is now taking it back to Sprint to get the Note2...I should be selling this thing!

    The neigh Sayers when it first came out are now eating crow, and the other manufacturers are scrambling to get in on the frenzy...

    Happy holidays...from Guy in Florida.

    I'm having the same thing happen. At work, people are constantly fighting with themselves over which to as me about first.. my job or the phone. I have yet to go to a bar and not have at least 2 people want to play with it. Last night at a family christmas gathering I got the "Is that thing big enough?! Is it a phone or a nook type thing?" Funny cause now I don't even really notice the size, just seems "normal" to me, but apparently to other people it looks huge.

    That's exactly what happens to me. People are shocked or surprised with the size. Other phones seem small to me. My wife's iPhone feels like a kids phone. I love this thing and I'm using the stylus more and more. Battery life for me is not as long as people have been posting but it's probably because I play battle with friends on it so much and I use the internet on it more than my laptop. There are sometimes I hate having to use 2 hands to write with my swype keyboard but it's not bad at all. I find something new all the time.

    I guess I'm lucky.. I only need one hand to Swype... lucky me.

    I was in best buy last night upgrading my fiancee's line and while in line I'm sure I talked at least 4 people into getting the note... someone there was upset because they had a evo lte and couldn't pick up 4g but I could....

    My fiancee says it's like talking on a mini laptop, but she loves grabbing my phone from me even though she has the s3 now...

    I am sooo loving this phone. I have a hard time using smaller devices now (iphone for work, and my wife's Evo 3D). I am curious to what cases everyone are using now. I bought online a leather holster and really like it but the drop factor on this phone seriously scares me SO I am considering that Otterbox case now that it is available. What about the rest of you?

    I offically dont get N2 till Jan 1st, but i already picked up 32GB microsd and my Otterbox came in yesterday. The Otterbox makes it a little bulkier but i love the added protection from those sudden drops, many times my phone is in my lap when im driving then when i go to get it it hits the ground. Always had Otterbox with my phones except EvoShift (didnt make one). 1 more week before i pick up phone cant wait

    I specifically bought this phone so that I could say "that's what she said" at least a couple times a day.
