Change Volume Settings on Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Edited by Batkingnz, Lynn, Anonymous, Ian Gabriel T. Tolledo

Volume and sound - two very important aspects of your smartphone. Imagine relying only on visual notifications to be alerted when you received an SMS, an email or an incoming phone call. You couldn't imagine it right? Sound is a huge part of how we communicate and interact, and just as huge a part of how you use your smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note2 has it's fair share of tricks up it's sleeve, outside of simply turning it up and down.
