usual samsung b/s, yes support the new models blah blah but the note is under a yr old! ive only had mine 8months the aftersales update procedure is crap, this is my 3rd galaxy and last! then when it does get pushed poland or germany get it first!!, then..after a few wks they drip feed it to other countrys, absolutely shit!,

good devices..**** update care, unless they change their stupid firmware release shedule, then this n7000 is my last handset from them, ill be cuppertino bound..
also would like to say, that they, samsung do not give a s*** with regards to the exynos exploit brick bug that most of if not all n7000's and the ancient s2 have, they recognised this serious issue and very quickly fixed the s3 and note 2, but as for owners of the original note inc me, and s2 owners all 40million worldwide (s2 & n7000 sales), we are invisible worthless, and the last 4.0.4 update caused more problems than .3

Why cant S2 or Note users can enjoy full upgrade which includes the New User Interface, New icons, New colors ..?? This sucks .. Samsung least bothers about older models.. Better go to HTC or NOKIA for that matter .. D**n you SAMSUNG .....

Oh god damn it! And for a minute there I thought I was in for a nice surprise this morning. Booo! Why fake a picture? Was it maybe an execution of a well thought through plan to hit Samsung at releasing the update sooner than later... hmmmm... sneaky!

No thanks, I'll stick with ICS 4.0.4 for the Galaxy Note as TouchWiz4.0 works perfectly for me and the updates to Jellybean 4.1.1 and now 4.1.2 Google have removed "USB Mass Storage Mode" in favor of MTP USB mode, which is terrible option.

So on my end I will have to root and then install custom firmware in order to keep USB Mass Storage Mode.

I recently sold my HTC One XL because of this very reason and also due to having no 4G LTE access where I live and work so no need for it just yet.
