I still had this phone in my locker room..didnt use it for long time..battery is bad compare to nowdays batery..it touch screen u better buy mid price phone they better smoth than this..other that this Note is Legend & may well R.i.p
This was my first note. I bought it when it first came out in 2011. People were laughing at me for holding such a "huge" phone in my hand. Today, I'm using a 5.3" phone too, and people still laugh it me for holding such a "small" phone :)
What is using this phone with a custom ROM running a newer version of Android like?
Bought mine when they first came out in 2011/12 - still going strong although I need to free-up some storage space to download more than 3 or 4 ebooks at a time. Original battery still going but now down to about 4 hours or so before recharge necessary - which is pretty good considering it's been recharged almost daily for 7 years to facilitate all my ebook reading!
I have been using this phone for many years and for some or odd reason, it does not want to update and now im stuck with android 2.3.5 which at times can be annoying.
I have been using it for the past 4 year and the person i bought it from for 2 years

I put a nougat rom on it and it became buttery smooth
Seriously iPhone 4s is pretty much unusable now but the original note with stock android can still work decently as a daily driver
And that completely blows iPhone 4s away

The note has a lollipop update and any Samsung device with lollipop is decent enough
I revived a note 1 that had it thrown away, updated it to Noughat android 7.1, recovery TWRP and partitioned the RAM with a capacity of 4 Gb, now it works well, fast and for the current price it is great.

Thinking of getting a used Note-1. It's real cheap now. But after reading some reviews here, I have reservations. Can it work on present day 4G-LTE netwrok? Is it really so slow till unable to multi-task due to its 1 GB RAM? Is the Amoled screen going to die since it is almost 7 years old? Hope some experience Note users can give advice. TQ.
Mobilemaster, 21 Dec 2017I have used a 5.2 inch device, and from tomorrow I will use a 5.8 inch device.I thought you didn't like phones with that screen size though
