    Note 2, buffet screen, bigger battery, expandable memory and Samsung in my experience are easier to root and mess with. With the games out now more memory is needed if your a gamer. The external to internal memory swap has been the best thing ever for me

    Note 2 wins because of bigger battery and SD card support. I'm picking mine up today!

    Hands down...Note2. I moved from a OneX to the GN2. I thought the display difference would kill me. Not so, if you want to have decent batt time you have to reduce your brightness to around 45% on the OneX.
    The Display on the Note2 is absolutely gorgeous. The GN2 is jammed packed with features that just are not on the DNA. Plus, I have access to SD card and Battery.
    What it really comes down to is simple..... Carrier and Network. Consumers released their findings..Verizon has great cust service, AT&T has the best 4g network. I have a friend that has a DNA. Everytime he gets near me, he asks if he can play with my GN2. He said calls are clearer and the GN2 is faster.
    Im settled for the year..this GN2 is going to be hard to put to sleep by the competiton. Next year Sammy is going to have displays out that will blow the LCD3 out of the water in Res, clarity, Contrast and Brightness.
    This is the first device ive owned that is NOT plauged with bugs, gremlins and problems. Its a pleasure to pick up and use.

    Games dont get stored in RAM. The internal memory of the Note right now is 16gb only of which 10 or so are availbable for use. After Spiderman, Batman, Nova 2 and Dead Trigger thats about it. By using the external to internal swap i now have 64gb internal. I was just saying with no memory card slot thats not even possible on the DNA

    What are you talking about when u say external to internal swap? I also have a 64gb sd card but the way you describe it seems like I might be able to install apps on it. Is this what you mean?

    There is a way to flip flop the internal memory to external memory

    That's what I said in another forum but no one had a clear answer besides the processor but in real world use its not noticeable

    yes there is a way, acutally two ways that i know. You have to be rooted. The easiest way is once rooted there is a simple zip file that you flash in recovery and it swaps your internal (10 or so left) with whatever memory card you have) works smooth. I have been running it this way for a while and can not put all my games on it. It essentially turns your 16gb Note 2 into a 64gb Note 2 Havent noticed any slow downs in game loading or playing either

    LOL it is what it is. If the Dna had 64gb or even 32gb storage it would be a tougher decision. To me the Note has eliminated the constant carrying of two devices. Still do at times but dont have the need to

    Default Re: Note 2 vs HTC DNA

    Yes thats the main reason i rooted mine. Not sure i can post links but if your rooted its a simple zip flash
