Time to share the xperience guys.

I have upgraded my Note from GB to ICS on the same day it was released....I am talking about the Indian region ICS 4.0.3.

After waiting for so long what I found is dissapointment.

Dissapointment ???

Alright then let me start with bad about ICS 4.0.3 Update for Galaxy Note.

1) When I had GB 2.3.6 my Note RAM consumption was 350-400 and after killing all the task it use to go to 295 but after installing ICS 4.0.3 it always stays at 450-500.
2) Coz of more usage of RAM it wont allow you to do multiple task at the same time and if you try to that then phone will start lagging and will become unresponsive .
3) If you are using Note for more than a month then you will easily come to know that GB was quicker and lagging free compare to ICS 4.0.3.
4) Now if I talk about the apps compatiblity ,ICS 4.0.3 comes with a one plugin pre-installed which is MusicFX,what it do is if you try to install and open and music apps like Winamp Player,Volume Boost+,Equalizer (Paid Version)...etc then your note will stop responding for a minute and you will get an error message for an example " Unfourtanely,Winamp has stopped".
Fact is MusicFX which is getting used in ICS 4.0.3 development is actually a 3rd party app which we can downloaded from Play Store and its copatible with GB too.

5) I was expecting some kind of a changes in TouchWiz UI like the ways we have other ICS running handsets but s the same no difference at all except the settings option...no extra or new widget provided too.
6) Battery drains very very quickly because of high usage of RAM.

Now lets see what are the good in ICS 4.0.3,

1) MusicFX which came pre installed really made big difference in music listening quality.The sound output is far better than GB.
2) Web Browsing is improved a lot...Browser is faster than ever.
3) Touch response is fairly optimised.
4) Data Usage control option is the best part in ICS

Thats all guys ....Now M going home and will use ODIN to get my fav & stable GB 2.3.6 back on my Note and will use JIG to get my warranty back.

Thanks for wasting ur time on reading my review.

Thanks & Regards

You might be finding the battery with a shorter since probably toy have been fiddling with your Note a lot since you got your update?

I heard one time that there would be an screen inverted function for the ICS internet browser to save on power, especially for AMOLED screens, in where the text would be white against a black background. Anyone caught that? I'm looking for that setting.
