New Note 2 owner with questions.
I'm loving the Note 2 experience so far (after 2 weeks with it). However...
The "Samsung" software being the default app for the important stuff is really annoying. I previously had a Nexus S, and I now know the difference between a Nexus phone and any other Android... it's the crapware.
When I try to change the contact list for example, I can go into the Menu/Settings/Application manager/then go to ALL...
Once there, I look for the Contacts App, and I only see the Samsung App.
However the Gmail contact list is more complete, and better integrated with my contacts (phone, email, snail mail addresses).
Going into the settings of the "Samsung Contacts", I cannot change the "launch by default" setting. It's greyed-out.
I tried going to the Play Store to download the Google Contacts, but it doesn't appear.
I would have really liked it if my new phone would have simply "synced" with my gmail account and populated the contact list as it was.
Any tips on getting rid of the "Samsung" stuff and changing default apps?
