Does anyone reading this has the Note 2? or everyone waiting to buy?

I might wait till 15th, just for the stocks to fill up and the hype to rest, so that the prices fall.

Samsung also launched a flip case cover for the N2, many unboxing on YouTube now. But we don't even have the phone, let's forget the case as of now.

Another day will go without the Note 2 in my hands. Sigh! “Parishram ka fal meetha hota hai".

No one has it yet. Everyday they say "tomorrow"....sucks !!!!

I have already sold my Note 1 to my friend and he is pestering me everyday....when am I giving it to him...(now I know what my retailer feels when I pester him) lol

I have never used any screen protector with any of my phones. I had the SG2, then the Note 1. Never had any scratches on my screen. But I do use my phone sensibly - no keys in the same pocket as my phone etc. etc.

somewhere i read that SGS II gorilla glass is better than this note 2 or SGS III gorilla glass so later one is better scratch prone.

Gorilla Glass 2 should be better than GG1.

It should be but I don't think it's un-scratch-able. There are plenty of reports that Gorilla Glass can be scratched with things like sand. I would rather put a protector. If it doesn't work well, you can always take it off.

Will give it to him for 18,000 or maybe a thousand or two less. Its not market price but a "to friend" price.

True.

But I don't like a protector. It seems to dull the vibrancy of the screen for me. I use a leather pouch instead.

I just checked with Airtel, they will issue a Microsim, or I could buy a SIM Cutter like this . (http://www.ebay.in/itm/MICRO-SIM-CUTTER-APPLE-iPHONE-4-4G-iPAD-2-4S-S-3G-3-SAMSUNG-S3-/251158643276?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item3a7a38c24c) @ 130 bucks, it comes with two adapters. The other option is to take the Microsim from Airtel and get two adapters for 50 bucks, just in case I need to use the SIM on another phone.

Just cut it at any mobile shop. Easiest way. Anyone will do that free. Why buy a cutter only for one time use.

Point taken. I think there are no charges for microsim from the operator as well, though I am yet to confirm that.

I don't like that faizul's. He won't give good discount to everyone and he feels like a lord.

Dude, 35.5 is a brilliant price. Bad luck for you though. Hopefully I get a Grey one for 35.5K in Pune soon. But Pune is goddamn expensive.

@sumeshd I am going to wait for an update from you in Delhi. My dealer says he will call once it arrives so no point tormenting him. <img src='http://www.modaco.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I will surely try to keep updated but the thing is I am still yet to sell my hox Nxt week and only then I can get note2..I will roam about mostly near kalkaji..I will keep updating daily for that area..but many places else like khan market, Nehru place, south ex, and gaffar market are the ones who will get the phones 1st..so try keep looking at ur nearby areas too..most shops imo will get it by most 2moro..in d above mentioned areas..
