galaxy note 2 owners chime in.
So after switching to the note 2 all I can say is WOW! Im so glad I switched from iphone. But my question to you is this. Is there a widget or function that allows me to close my running apps? When I was test driving the note 1 it had a widget that would let me turn off my apps, and I cant seem to find it on this phone. Am I looking in the wrong place? Feel free to speak barney style as I am not too tech savy.

There are many - usually not stock - "advance task manager" is the one I use iirc

Thanks guys, and yeah im looking for more of a quick turn off not having to go through the whole process. I cant seem to turn off completely the music player. Ill try the one you recommend rkt88

Press-and-hold the home button should bring up the list of running tasks.

Waiting here for the Note 2 to show up for Verizon....will be buying one for sure!

I just picked one up. T-mobile has a sale going on tomorrow for $200 off. I haven't had a chance to play with it much but so far I like it.

Why do you want to manually end processes?

steelrain82 11-17-2012 11:33 AM

Because when i Unplug my headphones it just Pauses the app even if I end it in task manager. But now that I hit the pie button it turns it off, thanks yellow. I also noticed I don't use the s pen as much as I did with the first note which is kind of weird. But oh we'll I love this phone not I just need to get some better keyboard apps as I don't like the ones that are on it.

Since you own a Note 2 your eligible for a free upgraded Dropbox account with 50GB of storage space.

I hate all you Sasmung GS3 and Note 2 owners, my upgrade isn't until March 2013!

How do you guys like the size of the Note 2? Does it fit in your front pocket comfortably?

steelrain82 11-18-2012 6:02 PM

Its big but I dont even notice it when it's in my pocket. As long as you put other stuff in the other pocket you are good to go. But I felt that way with an iphone as well, so you may be different.

Got my Note 2 about a week ago and luv it. I have big hands and hate small devices. This thing is just about perfect size. Now I just need a 1080p screen.

Android doesn't need a task manager. Google it.

The Note is pretty freaking big. At the same time..its kind of luxury feeling because of it. I have a galaxy nexus. I like it a lot, but its about the maximum size I could fit in my front pocket. The Note would be relegated to non pocket duty at all times, which would be inconvenient from me. I don't usually like to keep my phone in my back pocket.

Its a great phone. GS3 is great too. Just decide what size you like.

In the app, just bring up menu and select end.
