    1. You can use a MHL/HDMI adaptor (micro usb to hdmi) with the Note 2 for HDMI output.

    2. And yes, the Note 2 has a removable battery.

    Good to hear, thanks, removable battery is important to me, have started hearing of peoples og razrs batteries starting to swell, not a good thing, had this happen on my droid x my kids play with, lucky i caught it before it damaged that phone, but if it happens on a razr your kind of screwed

    I'm leaving moto for a note 2 as well.. 3100mah removable battery is such a benefit not to mention the countless other advantages over anything out

    I like the s4 as well but I will go with the bigger screen and lower cost of the note 2 (preowned)

    Could also get the media dock for the note 2 which is what I have for hooking it up to my tv (hdmi) it also has 3 usb ports as well. I love my note 2 best phone I have ever owned.

    Forgot... Battery life is AWESOME!!! You would think that with such a big screen that you would be charging this thing all the time... NOT!!! I plug it in at bedtime (sometimes) and I have never run out of charge... BTW, when I plug it in there is NEVER LESS that half a charge on the current charge... THIS BATTERY JUST WON'T RUN OUT OF CHARGE...

    I had no problem putting my Razr Maxx in my collection draw when my Note 2 arrived. I cant say enough good things about this phone.

    Do you find it unweildy to carry and use? A Martial Arts friend of mine from Austria uses it and I was impressed with it and he raved about it.He is also a Doctor and uses it frequently. He seemed to always be around a plug and I was a bit hesitant but with replaceable abtteries and extended batteries I am opening up to the idea. I work in uniform and was worried about being able to put it in a shirt or pant pocket. How are the holsters and such?

    I have had my GN2 since 12/02/12. I am absolutely thrilled with it. The screen is just super, both in size and quality. I purchased two additional 3500mAh batteries and an external charger for a total of $14 on Ebay. I keep one battery in the GN2, one in the charger, and a fully charged battery in my pocket. I have not plugged in my GN2 in 3 over months! On heavy use days, I just slip in a fully charged battery from my pocket, and I'm good to go. I also feel that powering off and on the GN2 at least once a day keeps it running cleaner and better. My wife has an 18 month old Motorola Droid Razr that she is always having to plug in. The removable battery is a great feature.

    I find that the GN2's size is not a problem for making phone calls, and is a plus for all other functions. I have a Samsung 7" tablet that I have not used since I got the GN2. I am finding that the GN2 has also replaced my notebook for many functions.

    The GN2 is one great phone and much more.
