I've read all the reviews and read the posts on here and the Note 2 looks like the next big thing. What I wanted to know is if physically it has the same antenna as the galaxy 3 and if it holds up in the real world. I have friends with the galaxy s3 that love the phone but they seem to drop calls a lot more then they would like. I am in the Boston Area, and maybe this is area related. I love the features of the galaxy I just want a phone that will work when I need it. I kept going back to the droid razr maxx HD, as I also know a few others who like the battery life and not losing the signal. If the Note 2 works great and and what ever error in the antenna is fixed then I would love to pick one up. I have the HTC thunderbolt with the brick battery on the back so the weight of the Note 2 will not be a problem. It seems like the galaxy and the Note 2 are loaded with features but in the end it has to work as a phone for me as well.
