It was the big issue with 4.0.3.....
with 4.0.4 they resolved the issue...
update immediately to 4.0.4 ...
why my note(ics 4.0.3) is not goin to deep sleep , still if fon is idling and no any active apps , it shows 80% processes of 200mhz, please advice.
I'm a fan of Galaxy Note. It's been a very good fascinator for months now. I upgraded it once to 4.0.3 (ICS). The performance got much faster and better and the UI is more friendly and looks better now. After a while, I decided to root it. It went well, too. Then unroot again after 2 months. Now there's an upgrade of 4.0.4. It can download the whole update files. However when it reboots, it doesn't seem to upgrade at all. It's been failing since then. I'm guessing it's the "rooting" that caused it to fail. Any suggestion? I appreciate it. Thanks.
Notey, 24 Aug 2012I have been facing problem with my battery its not even lasting for 4 hours at-least whereas,... moreThe Note can last as fast as 4 hours of power if you have been constantly logged on to the internet and/or gaming. Were you doing that?
I have never considered the Note as just a smartphone. It's actually a portable digitizer computer with cellphone functions. With its 2500mAh battery, it's has a longer talk and standby time for cellphone functions. The following are some 3G talk and standby comparisons respectively with other phones:
SG Note - 13.5H, 820H
Sony Experia S - 8.5H, 420H
SG S III - 11.7, 790H
Motorola Droid Rarz Maxx - 21.5H, 380H (strangely)
These are GSM Arena's stats, and HTC's One series had no available info on their battery usage stats.
My point is, the hardware usage other than cellphone functions are what's draining the battery of the Note - it's a pocket computer with a screen resolution higher than a 10" netbook!
I'm guessing the designer(s) of the Note really had thinness in mind than slapping in a 7000mAh battery - which I'd like to have. The Samsung Tab 7.7 with the same screen resolution but only bigger 7.7" HD Super AMOLED screen has the same processor and GPU specs that of the Note but has a bigger battery of 5100mAh. Yeah, I would not mind 7 hours worth of internet browsing or 12 hours worth of video playback in one charge. This is very close to what I get on after consuming 2 batteries worth on my Note with constant usage. I can imagine how a single 5500mAH Mugen battery can last the same on the Note.
If you are like me who use the Note than mere cellphone functions, I suggest you get 2 extra batteries and an official charger. Charge them at home so you don't always need to plug in the Note while out. With a dense screen, powerful dual-core processor and GPU, you can't possibly expect one charge could last a day unless you are scarcely using it. That's where others report getting up to 3 days worth of power (not doing much).
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
P.l :My Note is just a week old.
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.

abey, 22 Aug 2012Hhmmmmmmmmm I was very lucky, I also dropped my note from my Jeans pocket and got away with a... moreThe Galaxy note also fell from my pocket. It stopped charging for next 2 days. 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.... ( damn irritation but on the same day it started charging normally ). At present it is working like a charm. No issue at all... ( ICS 4.0.4 )
