Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 review: Power play  - read the full textTablets are cool. But they have a purpose too. Larger screens, higher resolution and more mileage out of the battery make them better suited for certain tasks. That’s why people are not only fascinated by them but do end up actually...

I've used Note 1 for almost a year now. So far, this device really satisfy me with its rich features, although there are also some dissatisaction comes from it, especially about the power of the battery and the Android ICS that sometimes got crashed.

One question that I really want to know is about the USB OTG capabilities for Note 1? I ask this since I've tried to connect my Note 1 with my external hdd with the capacity of 500gb but somehow it just be identified as a broken drive. However, when I plug a flash drive with16gb capacity, my Note 1 can detect it without problem. Does it mean that Note 1's USB OTG can only handle that much?

Is there any one has a similar experience? Please let me know if you have any info about this. Thank you.

Bought one recently and i asked the shop owner to upgrade mine to ics. There's a few steps been done after finish the update including restore to factory setting and remove the battery for a minute. After that the upgrade complete. No problem detected. Ics runs smoothly and the battery consumption can last up to 2 days with medium used of internet browsing. Note with ics is simply awesome!

Ever since I upgraded both software & firmware to version 4.0.3, the battery drains extremely fast & emptied superfast which before upgrading; never happens! Is there something wrong with the software!

Just 30mins video playback. If moderate use it last me about 2 days. If stand by and just few sms it last about 3 days.

So yeah my battery is awesome. I am in ICS by the way.

My new note baterry lasts only for 8 hours I can't belive I bought this phone for 30k whch needs two charges a day what's the use of 2500m power battery if the baterry doesn't last even for a single day. I'd rather use a non smartphone
