what are you doing Samsung?? when will the JB update be available for note users in INDIA??
The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 (aka the first one) is an awesomely awesome-tastic phone. True, you can do most of the same stuff with the newer model smaller phones, but thats what you get - a smaller phone!
The original Note was a game changer. It ran circles around the I-phone (personal experience talking).
If you like to watch films or just like to see more on screen, this is THE phone. I can watch the Formula 1 via wifi no problem. A few seconds to settle and you have hi-def tv! Put this through the car speakers and it sounds incredible (I was parked outside a shop while my wife was spending money. I found a wifi hotspot).
Get Polaris Office and you can type your Word compatible documents, do spreadsheets, powerpoint and other stuff I have still to use. I dont need this reall but it shows how it is a phone for all sorts of applications.
End of the day, this phone is awesome, fantastic, marvellous, and anything else you can think thats good.
The camera has taken some outstanding pictures. Sports mode, nighttime, panoramic, low light, parties you name it.
The only gripe I would have is one that any smartphone owner will have. Battery life. But alongside my wifes' SII, and it is not much different. Which cant be too bad considering I will be running 2 or 3 applications against her running one game. This is easily fixed by buying a higher mAh (capacity) battery. Try to find one over 3000mAh and you'll be happier.
Oh, it makes good phone calls too!
JB has been released in UAE.Neither its in OTA nor in Kies Air
Even i phone 10 cannot come anywhere close to note performance.Just for software update u sold note ?

Because this rom not totally bug free. FM radio doesn't work and it is not butter smooth as Samsung stock rom and you may get other hardware related issue. It’s better to go for stock German rom if you don't want to root your phone then you will not able to use many features. For your kind information rooting is not risky it’s just void your warranty but if you want you can unroot your phone easily.
