I'm a Samsung fan, though I admit that they're far inferior to Apple in construction. I've noticed my Samsung Note 2 has had alot of problems lately. The signal has been horrible, for voice and data. One day last week it mysteriously stopped charging at all, even though the charging port was undamaged, I installed a new one and it still wouldn't charge. Micro USB ports have always been shit, one of the biggest frustrations I've had with my current phone, and my Droid X before that. I take very good care of my phone. I clean it regularly and its never been dropped. Theoretically, unless an electronic has been abused it should keep working properly, right? Wrong, apparently. If this was an old phone, its understandable. But the Note 2s have only been out for 18 months..... Isn't that interesting... Right when my contract is up for renewal, and I get a discount on a new phone... That's quite convenient. I didn't have insurance on my Note2, until yesterday when Sprint allowed open enrollment for all their existing contracts to get insurance (Yes!). So after a quick inspection from a tech, I'm getting a brand new Note2 replacement being sent to me. But that kinda is beside the point that the phone I bought with a 2 year contract, wasn't even designed to last 2 years. Anyone have any experience with this on their own phones, across different brands and carriers?
