I have just finished upadating my galaxy note for ics few hours ago. My note has become smoother, but the difference from gb doesn't spot the obvious. I am not sure with the battery life yet, I will post more about it after some few days usage... see how it really is for the win.

I got my update officially though. When I went to settings then check update on my phone, it showed about an update for ics. And it took about 45-50 minutes from update to reboot.

One thing I have noticed is the font. Normally when you change font, everything shows whether on the web or anything for that matter shows the exact font you have chosen/prompted. But now with ics it only shows your font selection while you type. I wanted the gb even better showing exact same fonts not only from typing. But not a big of a deal though.

One other thing. I can't replace my icons down from my homepage with the phone, message etc thingie. I thought I could easily move and change them after update, I guess not.

PHILIPPINES here...

Anyways, more to come. Post later.. cheers all.

I have gone thru this opinion blog extensively. Quite a few people, after upgrading to ics, have developed some bugs/gliches. I for instance do not get the call history of any particular number. You have your own. The upgrade version isnt stable. Most of peoples battery life sucks. This youtube video is just one off hand which actually proves the upgrade instability. To each his own issues. I wrote to samsung and they replyed that thay are in the process as they had recieved many many complaints.

So i guess just stay putt for now and wait for them to develop something for fixing these bugs.

Frankly i cant / no one can help you. If u desire, fo back to GB for now and wait for stable update. I did that and am ok now.

After almost a week of using the Sonyericsson LiveView accessory (a small bluetooth device that alerts you of calls, SMS, email and other extra features) with the SG Note, here are some if my thoughts.

I got this nifty device for about US$47 (Php 1950) at a local electronics shop in Alabang, and i believe this is the first time that this unit has been commercially available. The Sony retail outlets here were only bundling it with the SE Active smartphone for around Php 14k. The LV has been released since late 2010 and it was sold almost US$100 but now you can find it being sold for a third of that amount on Ebay.

You can see an image of my LV here:
http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/j.../7165869329/

Despite the harsh reviews it had since its retail due to its consistent disconnection with Android smartphones, I was still quite intrigue with the idea that you get to read text, email, social network updates, get news feeds, control media, find your phone by sound alerting it, know who's calling, alert you with calendar events,  and with plug-ins, you get to do more like sending SMS template messages, remote and see a live picture of your camera operation of your smartphone... all on your wrist without the need to get it out of your pocket or bag, or getting that perfect image shot with yourself in it.

It was good that SE (now just Sony) let this be paired with other Andriod devices, but unfortunately some of the useful plug-ins are a miss with the Note, like the live camera remote control app SE wrote, or a remote control for slide presentations. The default calendar alert app was not working at all.

The promised 4-day power supply was only a mere 12 hours real usage for me! Maybe I can get more usage time if I turn off the vibration alert of the LV.

Yes, there was truth to the constant disconnection with your phone unit. However, I discovered that a developer wrote an app to help keep the LV connected called LiveView Charm.

The LV has an OLED 1.3" screen, and the time will not be constantly shown to save on power. You need to press one off the corner button to tell the time that stay illuminated for just above 20 seconds.

So what's this got to do with the Note and what does work? The LV is good enough as a convenience to checking your essential alerts and messages. I think the LV is more so useful for people using Android tabs. I have always been using my Note as my main music player using the Samsung HS3000 stereo bluetooth ear set, and remote controlling is more convenient on your wrist than just feeling the controls of the ear set. I have not missed any of my SMS and i can instantly reply with 15 custom message templates using SendSMS plug-in. SimpleGmail lets you read the first parts of the email. There's also a plug-in called Naview that connects to Google maps and transmits the vicinity area to the LV screen.

The real story was that I really was needing a wrist watch, as I was constantly having to take the Note out since my watch broke, and the LiveView was something more than a watch. It did last till I got home twice or so in the last 6 days of usage. Sony came out with the latest version of the LV called the SmartWatch, but it's US$150. It has claimed that one charge can last 5 days of use. Well, the Liveview is just ok for me. I think I'll wait for the next generation of smart watches with e-ink that would have grater efficiency in battery.

For those of you who are interested in the Otterbox casings, I had a go at them with my SG Note:

Defender Series (Php3500 retail in the Philippines):

I just wished they weren't that expensive (Php 1000 more than suggested retail price in the US).
