AnonD-18843, 22 May 2012after reading so many comments its now clear that samsung does not care about coustomer servic... moreI guess u should learn to be patient if companies just start rolling out updates overnight without testing consumers like u would complain of issues with new update... hence the delay...just yapping away at companies doest help ...atleast samsung rolls out updates half of the other companies just leave their customers with half cooked software...
Downloading ICS OTA right now. Mumbai, India. 319.21MB.. Download speed seems pretty good.

AnonD-54756, 26 May 2012guys.. m frm india... and after the ics update battery is far better than gb... u just need to... morebro...how did u do it ? Through kies it is so slow...after getting firmware upgrade aftr sometime...u get the message that there is no response from server...any othr way out
it was really worth the wait..
Ics is crispier..faster..& it knows what the user wants & wher should it b delivered..
its gonna kick iOS's soon.
guys.. m frm india... and after the ics update battery is far better than gb... u just need to get the battery calibrated.. i.e. full charge and full drain wait for a couple of days.. ull see the difference... n best option is root your note and freeze "MAPServiceSamsung" it dsnt effect ny phone functionality n improves battery life... g note and ics rocks... n ya.. do disable "SOCIAL HUB"
I'm from India. Got the update today!!! Connected via Kies and updated to ICS. Update is of 319MB size.
ishinlee, 24 May 2012indonesia here and i've updated via kies
my note is faster now. But i also notice i gets warm... moreyup. Indonesia just update via OTA. It does drains battery and consumes more RAM. I use battery saving app like juice defender. It helps a lot.
Well, above those issues, it is a worth waiting upgrade!
Exactly same problem.
Updated my Galaxy note to ICS yesterday (Samsung official update through Kies) and my agony started. I generally used to have 35-40% at the end of the day while going to bed.
Now my battery drains out to 10-15% in 8-9 hrs...
This sucks!! Sammy please help.
I also had similar issues with battery drain after updating to ICS. was very upset. Yesterday i factory reset my GN, and set power savings on, disabled wifi and sync, disabled some applications, from developer settings, set max number of activity running to 3, and display mode to movie. Yesterday Night i charged the device to 45% and after 11 hrs 35 min it came to 38% which i think is reasonable battery usage. I think while, upgrading from GB to ICS, some apps settings might be causing this issue. Also i uninstalled facebook and skype which may be having some service running in the background and keeping the device awake. whoever having problem with battery once pls try it out and post the status. (Don't forget to backup your SMS,Call log and contacts before factory reset). good luck
