    N2 staying power

    Within the past year I've had (not in any particular order) a thunderbolt...droid X2... iPhone...LG revolution...sgs3...razr maxx...and now the Note2.

    I'm hoping that the N2 could be the one for the next 2 years.

    My question is, do you guys think that the N2 can stay relevant for a while.

    Looks likes the S3 is not falling off a cliff, like a lot of the phones that comes out and after a month you never hear about it again.

    I think so. I remember my Bionic was dead when the Razr came out a month later. Granted spec wise the Bionic held its own against the Razr, it still was forgotten about. The last update made my phone laggy as can be, hence a perfect reason to get the N2.

    As long as Samsung doesnt screw up a future update ( we really need 4.2.2 as speech to text over bluetooth is broken on the current OS).

    The N2 is super fast and I definitely see it holding up.

    The Galaxy S line is Samsung's flagship phone, and the Galaxy Note line is Samsung's only phablet, so I can see these phones being "relevant" for quite a while. Of course how long they last will also rely heavily on how long Samsung will continue to support it. If they won't be upgraded to Key Lime Pie when it becomes available, then they will become outdated within a year. Look at the Galaxy S II. That phone is still being sold as new by some carriers.

    By Feb we should know the specs on the S4. It might be a real contender too. I am thrilled with my Note and won't switch to an S4 but since you are waiting until then it might be worth a look.

    Re: N2 staying power

    The Note 2 will probably be the premiere device in its category until the Note 3 comes out next fall. Other manufacturers, seeing the success Samsung has had, might try to release a competitor in the first half of next year that will have marginally better specs, but they won't be able to compete with the features and overall polish Samsung has with the Note 2. Samsung learned a lot from the first Note, and that experience in this category puts them far ahead of anyone else for the foreseeable future.

    I usually switch to a new phone every 2-3 months, but the Note 2 will be the first phone I keep for a year or more (until the Note 3 comes out, depending on the advancements are made with it). Once you get used to this phone, which doesn't take long at all, you don't want anything else.

    A fall release for the Note 3 will be a year after the release of the Note 2, so it's in keeping with the refresh schedule of most major devices (Galaxy S, iPhone, etc). U.S. carriers launched the Note 2 about a month after the international release, and Verizon released theirs a month after that. Absolutely nothing has been rumored for the release of the Note 3, but given Samsung's typical refresh cycle, a fall release seems likely. And I would worry about the Note 2 and updates for at least the next two years. Samsung has been updating their flagship devices quite well.

    I'm curious why you'd go with the MAXX HD due to features. It lags significantly behind the Note 2 and the S3 in terms of features. In fact, even though it was released months after the S3, it's overall specs are actually behind the S3. And in many ways, it's not all that much different than the first MAXX, so if you're bored with that one, the HD won't give you much of a change. It's a great phone no doubt, and a solid choice, but you just don't really see anyone saying they chose it because of the features it offers.
