The active notifications needs an LED screen to work, whereas the moto g has an LCD display.

Just wanted some info. Does it make sense to buy a Samsung Note 2 now? Getting some serious deals on it and i have some friends who have been using it for over a yr and are extremely happy with it. SD, Fk etc are selling them around 23k.

I havent checked in store deals as yet. I am confused between Xaomi Mi3 @ 14k or Moto X at 23k or Note 2 @ 23k.

I have used Moto G and i know how awesome it is to have a pure google on your phone. But some reason Note 2 seems like an attractive deal. Can do a lot more with the S Pen i feel.

Thanks.

Regards,
I'm in a similar position although exactly opposite. I've been using Note 2 for last 1 year but am planning to switch over to MotoG. My reasons are mainly I have 2 numbers so I dont want to carry 2 phones. Another issue is the size, I had bought the phone on josh quotient but its sheer size is troubling me. Otherwise the phone is good. Will be disposing it next month to buy a MotoG. Also the battery holds good for about 13-14 hrs now as against about 24hrs it was giving when new.

Close your eyes and get it. I am using Note 2 since Jan 13 and I never felt even once to dispose it off, even with the flurry of new devices launched in last 1 year.

The specs still hold really solid against the competition. The screen is a beauty and I get at least 30 hours battery life. The S pen is pretty useful too. Go for it!

Also Moto X has X8 contextual computing processor which is responsible for Active display on it. Since Moto G lacks the contextual computing processor, it cannot possess active display. However, there is a pseudo active display for moto g which can be acquired using an app(I remember seeing it on a nexus of my friend).

After downloading the update anyone can guide me how to install it. I tried 2 times and each time the device reboots into the recovery mode and even I use the normal start up it does not install update.

The phone continues to restart 5-6 times into recovery mode after which it says update unsuccessful. Thus happened 2 times. It would be great if someone can help.

Just updated my Moto G to 4.4.4 as well. One useful feature I noticed was that the phone now automatically hides the second SIM icon if you're not using it.

Very nice, because that SIM not inserted icon was very annoying.

Regards,
When you are getting Note3 Neo for ~25K (India Bill and warranty), whats the point in buying note 2? have a quick comparison of both the devices on youtube and you'll know the difference

Mind blowing camera. Mind blowing speed. Reliability of samsung (i blindly go by samsungs as i or my friends have never had any issues till now) Have owned and used many androids and im yet to find a replacement for this.

Sir, the Neo series phones from Samsung are scaled down versions of the flagships. The only minor difference in Note 2 vs Note 3 Neo is the GPU (Mali 400 vs Mali T624), which 99% buyers won't know a damn thing about.

And the primary processor of Note 2 is a 1.7 Ghz while Note 3 Neo's primary processor 1.3 Ghz one (yes there is another 1.7 Gh dual core processor, but thats rarely used as per design).

Let me know if you find any mind boggling difference. Otherwise I wont buy your comments.

Cheers!
