I've checked with my dealer on the note and the note 2, in terms of MYR(currency of Malaysia) the difference is MYR400++, between the note and the note 2. But i still prefer the original note because it takes the form factor of a phablet whereas the note 2 is a bit tall(weird looking for me O.o). So for extra 400, I can get nothing much, so I prefer to stay note 1. So I'm happy to report, I will be getting the Note 1 in a few days time, and with my remaining cash, I can still get myself a pair of quality Camel Active shoes. Hahahaha =)Though its a phone of an older generation, I trust in Samsung to not neglect updates for the Note, as its a popular device. Though not a black stallion, I have the last piece, i.e Snow White.
Sethy Life Of Seth, 09 Apr 2013Thank you, good man, for answering my questions fast. So for how long did you have your note a... moreno need to thank me, glad to help.
i've got mine just a bit under 4 months, traded my iphone 4s for it( yea apple fanboys go troll on me, 4s excluding the camera, it sucks ) i rooted it with a custom room and then revert it back to original jb.
i didnt feel much difference with a custom rom, rooting was easy tho, and i'm more of the classic type.
i have friends with s2 - s3 - one x - iphone5 and even xperia z, they all look like toys when i put this big black stallion on the table.
Not to mention when i use turn my phone on the side and take s-pen out to browse or post on facebook, all other phones on the table fall in shadows.
i would never go to a phone with a smaller screen size.
in real, note has sides of dark blue and a deep black screen, it looks so stylish. i'm thinking to switch to note 2, but only if it will launch in a combination of colors like original note.
blue, white and gray are not my colors of choice.
any more question, i'll check it and respond to you.
yess u can buy now its price allready splashed , better dont upgrade to gellybean right now untill samsung updates newfirmware.
I plan to buy a phone in a day or two. Withing this budget, I still find Note to be the best. Though its an old phone now. Does it makes sense to buy Note now? Please guide if you have any other suggestions. Thanks.
Smaarty, 08 Apr 2013rooting the phone is risky? and its void the warranty?No.. rooting is not risky. Yes void warranty but I will tell you some tricks so that your warranty will get back again.. :)

Sethy Life Of Seth, 08 Apr 2013Dear all note users, I myself am going to be a note user too but there's a few question I need... more1. it does not lag. but it opens Snote( which i use a lot) very slow.
2. if i play games like modern combat 4 or wild blood or gta vice city it drains very fast.
if i play samurai vs zombies / doodle jump or any light games - its nice
i watch movies / listen music alot on it - battery drains so slow, this is a +.
-camera is wonderfull - i had one s - iphone 4s before and this is indeed best camera between those 3.
- yes it does both.
-no but my s-pen has touch sensitive issues - sometimes it taps on keyboard even when im just keeping the pen at close distance but not pushing on the screen.
and note: screen gets hot alot if you play heavy games.
it can plays all kind of movie formats and i enjoy everyday with my note.
i have official jb and my note is from italy factory unlocked.
Dear all note users, I myself am going to be a note user too but there's a few question I need to ask beforehand. I will be going on vacation in 5 days time and I want a companion too! I sold off my old phone today and now left without one.
-How is the performance of the note? Does it lag?
-Being an avid gamer, this question is fairly important and getting an answer helps alot; how is the battery life on the note for a heavy gamer like me?
-Screen performance under direct sunlight.
-Does it support multitask/multiwindow after official Jellybean update?
-Does anybody here have a burn-in screen? (Dunno what that means tho, but if anyone does, please let me know how to avoid it)
Thank you very much!! Have a nice day! =D

Battery drain problem completely gone after JB update. Its been over 2 weeks now and I am loving JB on my Note.
No problems at all. Games run more smooth and fast. :D
I just don't like the picture becoming faded in the lock screen. Rest is all great.
Prithivi, 08 Apr 2013Then can u suggest us the best rom and kernel thanks in advance Yes.. why not. Go for Sweet Rom V5 or V6 with philz latest JB kernel. Both are the best rom ever.... :)
Guys I want to say u something... if u r using original rom and kernel then don't expect high battery backup.. If u use custom rom with custom kernel then u will get good battery backup. U guys believe me or not mine battery backup min 2 days with huge call.
after jelly bean update i am not able to make call thru n7000. tried c
hanging the sim also but facing the same issue. it seems that phone got locked. please suggest how to get it solved. did anyone else.is facing the same issue...thanks in advance

Dear Samsung, After updating to Jelly bean 4.1.2 my galaxy note consuming more battery, some times its voice strucks up , how to rectify it,, if no rectification how to go back to ICS, please advice,,,
For All those having 'battery drain after JB update'..
1. Don't panic, wait for new software to adapt to ur phone n d way you use it.
2. From d drop down menu, switch of evrythn- mobile data, wifi, sync, bluetooth, gps etc. when not in use.
3. Download CPU spy from play store. Reset counters, send d phone to standby n check after one minute, CPU should be in 'deep sleep' for at least 90% of time. If not clear all d background processes n check again.. If still not in deep sleep, Restart d phone, it works.
4. Remember, if it is taking unusually long to charge, again check CPU spy. It HAS to be in deep sleep for at least 80% of time.
5. With all above measures my note lasts for 1 & half days wid moderate use. Battery loss per hour is also reduced n it is approx. 1% per hour in standby mode.. Chill everybdy, lets fall in luv wid our note once again!
