    ^Thanks

    I am so amused with this phone! What a difference from my Nokia E72. I would have been much happier though if I did not have an issue with my SPen, And the battery drains relatively fast. I could go for 3 days without charging my Nokia, but with the Note2 it gets drained over 50% within the day.

    BTW, the SPen's handwriting recognition is EXCELLENT. I have extremely bad handwriting yet it's still accurate in recognizing the letters!

    Cycle the battery, drain it fully then re-charge as per instructions, around 3 times AFAIK. From then on, you can expect longer battery operating life, but that depends on your usage though, i.e open applications, sounds, etc.

    I would buy a car charger, and a seperate indoor charger (for office use) if I were you.

    May I ask you a thing, did you updated your Note 2 to the latest firmware? Kasi ito ang pansin ko dyan. Nung bago ang Note 2 ko, I can last up to almost 3 days on standby. Pero nung nag-update ako to 4.1.2, nagsimula siyang maging matakaw sa battery. From almost 3 days to almost 2 days nalang ang battery ko on standby.

    install task manager apps or app killers.. so you could terminate apps running but you're not really using.

    Lamang na lamang sa feature ang Note II. Okay ang multi window at best faces na feature. Ang lamang lang ng ipad mini eh mas malaki ang screen.

    Nope. I have not done anything to my Note 2. all stock pa. hehe. Except for GoSMS.

    Na addict ata ako sa high tech phone, sabi ng friends ko I am becoming autistic. Ayaw na din nila pumunta sa lugar na may wifi kasi hindi na naman ako makakausap

    I need advise on the memory card. Microsdhc ba kailangan ko? The phone did not come with a manual kasi Can I buy 64 gb or okay na 32 gb?
