I had this phone for almost 6 months now, dropped it many times and had no problem with it. But my only concern is the battery, which most of note users had problem with. Had to buy portable charger or additional battery for backup since the battery doesn't last long. But overall this phone is awesome! Update it to ICS and this phone will never fail you. Good job Samsung!
I have been facing problem with my battery its not even lasting for 4 hours at-least whereas, my friend's phone giving a better backup than mine tough he has more apps installed and running in his phone.tried my level best to find the problem but failed.
can any one help me with a solution?Please do reply back to me

just asking about the camera, is the quality of the camera same as the sony ericsson phone?
Jose, 23 Aug 2012I have a 64Gb Micro Sd on my NoteSo, the 64GB micro SD is working properly on the Note? Can you post screenshot and actual pics of the hardware? We wouldn't want to waste money just to find out that it doesn't work. Anyone else can confirm this? I would like a bigger storage.

Then it started charging for 5 min and stopped charging for next 10 min. Later on, after a week or so it started charging 2 seconds & not charging for 2 seconds....

A protective cover is the best way to prevent damage. No matter how careful you can be, there is always a possibility that you can drop this baby.
I recently saw a cover that is "military grade" (that's what it said!) that cost around $12.
You can see the front here:
You can see the rear here:
The biggest pro for this is that it's more fully protective than Otterbox' Defender cover (costs $60!) with those cover for the camera, earphone jack and S pen. And the biggest cons are that it's hard to take off and the metal conductive buttons for the back and menu keys don't work all the time.
It's important for me that it can be opened really to change to fresh batteries. This is currently what I do use:
It's a silicon and hard plastic combination with corner bumpers. The slightly front raised silicon edge is good for absorbing the shock of you drop the Note the glass facing a flat surface.
If budget permits, do spend on the Otterbox' Defender or at least its Commuter casing.
