> In reply to T-rex @ 2012-03-13 00:49 from Y9kb - click to readYes Trex this is normal and you werent cheated. All that used RAM the 500+ you spoke of is all the preloaded apps and extras that carriers and device manufactures put on there running in the background. The 200+ that doesnt show up i believe is reserved for OS and kernel stuff... Dont let the 200 or so of free memory discourage you either. This isnt like a windows desktop OS, that as less memory is available, performance suffers. Android handles and use memory completely differently than you might be used to if you have only used windows OS. If you want more memory try a custom rom from a site like XDA that has all the bloatware removed. Most ROM devs remove as many unnecessary apps and services they can to increase all available memory. And trust me 200mb of free memory is still a good amount. Most apps only use a few megabytes to run anyway so unless you run an additional 30 or more apps simultaneously I wouldnt worry about it. Oh yeah Andriod auto closes un/least used background apps if needs to free up more memory on demand so... youre all good

For those of you concerned that the phone is too big just to check for simple notifications, buy the Sony Smartwatch to complement your big display phone that can stay in your pocket or bag or glovebox.

I used this Galaxy Note for a week or so, and its surely having good and competent features. But the problem is that its becoming too big and especially while driving my Car, when i need to make emergency calls with one hand, it becomes quite uncomfortable... I feel that this is more like a tablet than a phone... So I just sold it out and bought a new iPhone4s..

Guys, note that my hand is smaller than the average size, so maybe it became a personal problem for me.. But, you can cross-check the Galaxy Note size and try to use the phone with one hand.. If you really think that your hand is big enough for the phone, just go for it.. otherwise, opt for S2 or iPhone4s...

I bought this phone in Canada with Rogers and I realy like it. What I do not understand is. The spec says 1gb of ram but the phone says 732mb and 522 is already in use. Is this typical of all ram on cell phones? I feel cheated and am not sure if I should return it. Usually 1 gb mean 1024 mb

I bought Galaxy Note in December & my battery life is only 6-7 hours on medium usage since then. Earlier i thought it would be because of the heavy screen and all until i came across a friends handset which is giving him 17-22 hours on same usage. I tried contacting the service center & the manager there is trying to convince me that the Note has only 2 hours of battery back up. This is shit! Is there an online website or email address where i can email samsung about the condition of my phone & poor performance by the customer care people here? Please help! :(
