    Why is the Korean one better ?
    Yah, that's what I'm wondering. Why is the OP asking where its made? What gives?

    OK, so why is that more lucky than the China made Note 2 ? I'm just curious 'cause I don't have a clue.

    The implication is that phones made in Korea have a higher quality than those in China. Who knows if that is true or not. Don't see any reason to tip toe around it.

    My Note 2 (ordered direct from the VZW website) was made in China. I'm not losing sleep over it (nor do I think anyone should be offended by this thread).

    I exchanged my note 2 twice because of the dead pixel and dust under screen and returned the third one because of the same problems. All where made in China. My friend's note 2 is made in Korea and doesn't have a single issue.

    all Note 2 phones are placed together... all she had to do was look at the label outside of the box(on the bar code)...

    the Chinese-made ones only have the screen problem... but the Korean-made ones have other issues... so it's really a coin-toss.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread.

    Bought a Note 2 yesterday, made in China. The one I got on release day was made in Korea. Bought from the same Best Buy store in NYC.

    Has anyone recently bought a Note 2 that was made in Korea?

    You have got to love quality control. Makes me glad my car was made 100% in Japan to be honest. No issue with Honda cars made in America but I'm glad its not China or something.

    I would never buy a Honda/Toyota/Nissan made in America. (or a BMW/VW/Mercedes made in America)

    Having said that, I also choose never to fly on Airbus jets if I can help it. Only American-made Boeing jets for me!
    Out of the 107,000 actuals miles I flew last year, only about 2000 are on Airbus. The rest all on Boeing.

    I have three Note 2 phones.

    (1) Verizon version, made in Korea (bought in January)
    (2) international unlocked version, made in China (bought in first week of February)
    (3) Verizon version, made in China (bought yesterday)

    I also have three Galaxy Nexus phones
    (A) Verizon version, made in Korea (bought in December 2011) traded in for $250 at VZW
    (B) international non-US unlocked version, made in China (bought in July 2012) used as spare phone
    (C) Verizon version, made in Korea (bought in October 2012) sold yesterday

    Haven't experience anything wrong with any of them yet....

    Mine is Korean made. Brings a little smile to my face that I have one less Chinese item in my house. Now if it was just made here in the US!

    I originally bought one made in Korea. Had it replaced by Asurion insurance with one from China. I see no difference what so ever. Had I never seen this topic I would probably have never known there were two options. I wonder what the difference is... if any.

    I'm in NC and my N2 came from China. Picked it up at the V Store in Hickory.
    Bought my Note 2 February 22, 2013 at a Verizon store in Greensboro, NC. Mine was made in China. I'm good. No complaints at all.

    Now THAT'S the version I want. Forged in Mount Doom=quality. Not only will it last forever, but if someone steals it, it will come back to you on its own.

    But, unfortunately, that isn't the one I have. Picked mine up from LetsTalk just before Christmas. Made in Korea.

    I wonder if Samsung originally made them in Korea, then shifted production to China.
