I have had this phone over 2 years. That is far longer than any other phone I have owned. This one is a tank the only thing that went wrong was the charging port that I fixed for $8 and I replaced one battery. The battery last all day. The people I talk to say it sounds very clear. The camera is good and the videos are fine too. They are old but still have a lot to offer if you can find one in good condition.
I bought mine when they first appeared. They were not available in the USA yet. I bought mine in Germany. It came with Android 2.3 (i think).
I had a lot of problems with the VoiceTalk app. Also random freezes, and disconnects from the network. The stylus inked 3 cm above the display. After I moved to Singapore, I bought an iPhone and stowed the GN.
Later, I rooted it, and flashed it with a clean (bloatware free) image of Android 4.12. That fixed all the problems except for the stylus. I snapped that in half and tossed it.
the game, 13 Aug 2014HI can we upgrade from android version 4.0 to 4.1.0
The Best Phone I have ever used. I am using it since 2012. I am officially upgraded to andoid 4.1. Still this phone is working perfectly. I love my Galaxy Note N7000
Worst Phone Ever!!!! Ive had issues since first purchased June 2012, over heating, 2-3 hour battery life, connection both phone calls and data. Returned to Telus and after 3 attempts to repair they finally exchanged for a another model (this was within first 30 days)
Here we are August 2014 - Replaced the battery - still no life, wont power down, apps keep running in background so must keep data off or Ill go over in usage, when I take a picture battery goes from 100% to Immediate shut down. The list is endless!!!!!
Service provider Telus charged me $800 for the phone, I still owe around $150.00
Lesson Learned - just b/c it cost more doesnt mean its better
Worst Phone Ever
