I purchased Note on 25th and now experimenting. Seriously, this is excellent device. But, as discussed in forums at length buy many, battery draining is issue. As suggested by Neighbor, I'm in the process of downloading Juice Defender and will see the difference.
In the settings, there are settings for Power saving in which two options are given- System power saving mode, and custom power saving mode. Can experts comment- how good are above settings, any benefits in term of improving battery life?
I can not hide my feeling to share that SAMSUNG atleast could have supplied USB OTG and HDMI cable as standard free accesories alongwith the package. See way back NOKIA introduced N8 and later on E7, in which these are standard supplied accesories. Moreover, charger supplied (in India) is suitable for voltage rating 150V- 240V. Does it mean to buy a new charger if you are visiting USA? See NOKIA /iPhone chargers are always having rating 100V-250V. Why SAMSUNG did not ensure for such simple thing? Bad..
Anyone experience any problem to configure exchange mail on Samsung Note? I am currently using samsung note and HTC Desire HD. No problem to setup my work email using exchange or IMAP on HTC, but unable to do so using Samsung Note.
Have tried at least 50 times with different settings, still doesn't work.
Anyone has any suggestion if I need to change any other settings (Such as security settings etc) in order to receive my work emails on samsung note?

beckon, 28 Dec 2011Juice Defender can't do nothing if you're always tinkering with your Note.I already mentioned that fact more than once. That's why I also keep an extra battery handy as well as letting Juice Defender do its work. Unlike Iphone users, we have the option of changing to fresh batteries without waiting to charge up the phone. I keep my Note practically wireless, since I charge my drained battery with the Note's separate charger either by plugging it to the electrical convenience outlet or with a portable power bank. External battery jackets would make the Note bulkier and the internal battery's life cycles shorter with that constant charging.

Update your note from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6, which of course is better, simply go to setting >about phone>software update>download and install phone will reboot and you can get 2.3.6. Do it throug wifi.

However I don't think it's with the Outlook setting because I set the same email on Blackberry and iPad. That means 4 gadgets (notebook, Blackberry, iPad & Galaxy Tab) are downloading the very same email, but only Galaxy Tab has problem.
what does NFC (optional) means, i know what is NFC but what is optional in this neither can i find any options in the settings
Whatever happened to Stuff1111 and his G Note complains on his battery? Did he finally resolved it or has he switched to the famous Iphone 4S?

Where as black is its stongest point and saved power, white does the complete opposite and is mean on the amold display. As u would have observed, many if not all web pages features a lot of white hence the high draining of power where as it would do way better while watching movies.
at the moment you can hardly find a phone which overmatches the Note :) It's superb. this is the device which makes the choice easy
Here's an observation you may want to do to see if Juice Defender is working on your Note - take note of the battery percentage just before you sleep. Make sure that you are not running any processes like downloading something. Turn off your screen for the night. It should not have not drained the battery at all or just probably a 1% drop during the entire time you have slept. Usually the Note drained some 2 to 3% per hour, before I installed Juice Defender. This means it saves at least some 36% of your battery on a 12 hour period without you minding to turn off your data and radio signals. JD does that for you. Of course the usual battery drains upon usage, but the power conservation while the phone is idle is very useful.
Now I'd like to see a method where the battery lasts far more than the mere continuous 3.5-hour internet browsing time. Is it merely the Java animation that's causing the drain? The Note can deliver an HD video playback for 9.5 hours - I wish that would be the same time capacity for internet browsing. Anyone can suggest something?
need help .... my phone always restart by itself... i install a lot of games... its it because of the games or the os or the hardware.... tq in advance
Samsung Galaxy Note is awesome and ALMOST perfect.... Why almost perfect?
1. Photo editor is not good enough. As compared to samsung wave's photo editor it has a lot choices on how you improved the photos.... as compare to samsung note... photo editor options are VERY BASIC... 5/10.
2. Samsung Note's speaker is not powerful.... the speaker of WAVE is far better.
