    How do you like that. I rooted something without even knowing what "rooted" means.

    Now I have to look up what ROM means.

    The problem isn't the device, it's the warranty replacements. There will always be a few bad devices and you happened to get one the first time. And so did at least two other people, or they damaged their devices. And you got THEIR returned phones as your replacements, most likely. Verizon and Assurion are particularly notorious for this, but I'm sure it happens on other carriers. They send out broken phones hoping that by some miracle the next person to receive it won't have the same problem as the first. Either that or there is absolutely NO quality control on the returns. Whatever the case, their return and warranty replacement system is seriously screwed up. That's why people will get three, four, five or more devices with problems while 99% of people get a perfect device the first time and never have any trouble. If they send you another clunker you need to demand a brand new replacement device. That's just ridiculous that anyone should pay so much money for something and then get someone elses problems as replacements.

    Thats with most phones in general. Alot of the time ppl dont report warranty issues or hardware issues. I was seeing just as a general consensus if ppl had any issues whats so ever. The majority doesnt have issues but some ppl still do.

    If i usually have an issue with my phone i come here and look to see if others are having the same problem or not. I think its just me. Lol.

    I'm just saying there's a few threads already along this same line with a lot of positive feedback. My old stomping ground was the evo 4g lte forum and that one didn't have nearly the same positive feedback.

    Wow, that really stinks. The only issue I've had was with the screen rotation bug. Other than that, everything has been perfect. Good luck!

    I change my statement. My phone still has the WiFi issue. I'm jumping through hoops to get it replaced. This phone is so problem prone and has a very laggy UI. I don't know how ppl can deal with the UI. I've had 4 different note 2s and I've used other ppls and used the ones in the store and they all have a very slow UI the last update helped with it but it's still slow imo. Im going to try and get a different make and model replacement.

    No offense, but you must have a very different definition of lag than most people.

    Have you tried disabling the animations in the developer settings? These phones are very feature packed, so a little lag is to be expected, but adding touchwiz's animations can make it almost painful.

    I have had no issues with either of my note 2's (except the fact I murdered the screen on the first one)

    And as for lag... debloat it, turn animations off. I have ZERO issues with lag. And I'm using stock TW launcher on a stock deodexed rom.

    There is a second or more delay from when you press the unlock button to the screen turning on, the s3 wasn't a problem. Bringing up the gallery without a lot of pictures or videos was slow. Unlocking to the web or messaging app was slow. Pretty much every other phone I had didn't have any issues. It didn't matter if it was fresh from a master reset of not. My s3 was better but slower compared to other android phones.

    I was fine with how the s3 was. It was a bit laggy but not a problem. The lgog and HTC one are the fastest phones I've used with the UI.

    Yea I have tried that but it didn't make my h of a different. Something's were quicker but opening apps and unlocking the phone was still slow.

    I've even disables some att bloatware and it didn't make a difference. I just think that's how touch wise is. My phone sat around 500-600 mb of ram usage.

    I love my note 2 and have had 0 issues with it other than the fact nobody but otterbox makes a holster case for it lol
    Holster case? Like a case the phone goes into which then can clip on to a belt clip type holster? If so, pt platinum from best buy has one. Its just like the seidio surface with metal kickstand, except this one also comes with a belt holster. I think its like $30

    That's extremely unfortunate that you're having these issues. I had a small issue with my note 2 when I first first got it. A small issue with the s pen. Ironically enough.. It went away on its own. But i hope these different issues haven't ruined your experience with the note 2..because it's an excellent phone. The best device I've had thus far.
