Hello,

I bought my note 2 three months ago & It did very well untill 2 days ago

My note 2 had a lagging & hanging issues yesterday and I had to restart it many times when it didnt repond , I thought it may be a virus so I did scans using 3 different antiviruses and was clean , then I thought it may be a bad app. so I uninstalled some of recent installed apps but no improvement ! I even removed some of videos to decrease the memory and get the sd card and the sim card out , but also no improvement !!

P.S. The phone was some times previously give me a crashed touch wiz home messages and some apps were crashed also , so I guessed it may be the launcher so I tried other launchers or may be the apps & uninstalled them but still I found the same problem .

So I got bored & went to sleep with the phone very laggy but working for some time after each restart

When I woke up today , I found the phone turned off , I tried to switch it on , but No Response at all !!! only the small red light near the front camera is fluctuating when I try to switch it on !!!
I removed the battery and tried every thing but NO RESPONSE !!!!

P.S. it`s on stock ROM with 4.1.1 JB

PLZ ppl help me

SDS - Sudden Death Syndrome. Its not SD card. If your phone chip was 0xf1 and your phone was on 4.1.1 so its sure sds and phone is dead. You had to update your phone to 4.1.2 with Odin because it has fix from sds .

Have you ever rooted ? If not return phone to service center asap.
If yes then go into download mode and click volume up and tell what is your counter status

When you get replacement phone check its chip ( via "emmc brickbug check" application from play market ) . If its 0xf1 ... do not take it... if its chip 0xf7 or other you can take it. Mainly phones with 0xf1 on 4.1.1 affected sds. And main - upgrade to 4.1.2 as it has fix from sds.

If you get the chance to check the chip before you get the new device. Which I doubt you will. You'll probably get the phone sealed, and Samsung will hardly get you the new phone only because there is a chip inside which is prone to fail. This is the main problem. Samsung still doesn't acknowledge the SDS. At least not in whole.

This was never confirmed by Samsung. If you ask me, it's a myth. Some devs thought it might be the fix, and Samsung never denied it. That doesn't mean it is a fix. They fixed the exynos bug, but it has nothing to do with this.

I think it's awful how Samsung threats us.
