Ok so I updated to the official 4.0.4 thru kies. Don't worry if you have the brick bug. Updating OTA or thru Kies is 100% safe. I have it too!
Here are some changes that I have noticed:
1. Pop-Up player like the GS3. 100% smooth and lag free.
2. The pattern lock has been modified, with thin lines.
3. Signature unlock.
4. TouchWiz has been tweaked. Now a lot smoother.
5. Restart button is in green.
6. The best improvement of all is the battery life. They have fixed the fuel_alerted problem. So no need for BBS and cpuspy nemore.
With medium usage and a little of internet, you can get upto 3 days. However with moderate net usage, the battery life lasts 2 days.
Rgds and hope it helps ;-)

AnonD-66358, 10 Aug 2012Don't go in for ics... your already poor battery life will become even poorerSorry I mean 4.0.4 not yet available in Cambodia. when I can get it.
I'm currently using 4.0.3.
Thanks for your response.
your phone should be fully charge before updating that is why it only reboot and nothing happened
AnonD-66358, 10 Aug 2012Any phone other than note. Battery life just sucks. If you are to use internet 2G, some net, ... morePS- you can have extra batteries for the Note when you run out of power. The Iphone has a fixed battery.

Battery life just sucks. If you are to use internet 2G, some net, ... moreYou can't compare the Galaxy Note to the iPhone. iOS is a different experience from Android. The iOS and iPhone is resistrictive, in terms of file transfers (no bluetooth transfers, no memory card slot and you have to connect to iTunes just to manage files), multi-tasking (iOS just kills off previous operations, hence your beloved smooth, no lag experiences), limited memory capacity (you can get a 32GB micro SD card for just US$20 now), very puny 3.5" (640 by 960 pixels) touch screen for games, entertainment, photo editing (you can name more), and absolutely no Wacom active stylus system (because Steve Jobs said so with his "once you see a stylus, they blew it!" speech). This youtube link illustrates some of my experinces between the two:
Although you are right about the short lived power of one charge for a Galaxy Note, operating some 7 to 8 hours of medium usage (4 hours if you really turn on the internet with downloading torrents, surfing; 2 hours with 3D gamess like Dead Space), all because it has such a brilliant 5.3" 1280 by 800 pixel HD Super AMOLED screen, which is really effective against day light. Try doing art like these with your finger on your 3.5" scree iPhone:
But surprisingly, the Note can play roughly 8 hours of HD video - most video formats.
I have had the Note since November and my reasons of getting it over any other phone is the huge HD screen, Wacom stylus system, and its (then) bad ass processor and GPU performance. Ive used it for sketching art, entertainment, work on site, paper submissions, presentations (oh yes, you can hook it up to a projector) and sketching over slides, connecting to a LiveView watch with it, remote controlling my Netbook via 3G, recordings, CAD, and practically doing most of what a premium device has to offer.
The iPhone is ok. I guess it caters to your needs of what YOU think is a premium smartphone. But just don't try forcing your preference to others. The Galaxy Note is awesome, and people reading this opinion page who are Galaxy Note owners and Android users alike use Android because there is a better choice than iOS.
In my N7000 I am unable to use Viber Calls. When I make a call I get a message "unavailable or being blocked". I would appreciate if I am advised as how to use Viber and what should I do about it. More over in my Note "Open a new window option is not working". Please reply at "firstname.lastname@example.org"
I am going to buy it, I want to know how to identify screen affected by tint ?
harry, 10 Aug 2012hey guys i thout purchase this phone........so u sugest me this phone is better then apple iph... moreAny phone other than note.
Battery life just sucks. If you are to use internet 2G, some net, some music..... forget about note.
With setting of least brightness, some games, some net, battery life with ICS is not more than 8 hours and if one has to switch off all the features then why buy this stupid hanset after so much money?
i have seen a few iphones and i find them better.
My Galaxy Note was updated to 4.0.4 via WIFI.
Download time: about 30 minutes. (You have to wait & do not disturb your phone until Setup is finish.)
Finally you will success.
Which upgrade is official in india for samsumg smart phones i.e galaxy note
That is kies or OTA
Please tell me friends if any one knows.
How do you connect you galaxy note to a TV to play movies there? what cable do i need to get or use?
harry, 10 Aug 2012hey guys i thout purchase this phone........so u sugest me this phone is better then apple iph... moreDefinitely its better than iphone. This is really very powerful device. As everyone one knows about the number of applications in Android Market is increasing daily. I haven't heard about any famous iphone application.
Its also upgradable to ICS which gives awesome experience of GUI better than iphone 4 ;) http://goo.gl/1Yq3h
