just bought galaxy note an hour ago. i'm posting this comment using it. the phone is a delight to behold. before buying it i asked the storeclerk if customers who bought from their store are complaining about screen discoloration. i was assured that they had not encountered such complaints. and i asked if the phone is saleable and he answered that during weekends they would sell at least 15 units of galaxy note. the phone is still very expensive but i really want to have my own galaxy note. so i parted with my precious money and satisfied my desire. the phone looks huge but it's very light. the size of the keys are much comfortable for my fingers and i seldom missed letters when composing text. i'm happy today.
Hi I am from Pakistan. Since I have updated my note to ICS, my battery timings have gone up. The new OS are much better than the GB in terms of speed, battery consumption as well as performance.
Hi guys, those having heavy battery drain just do the following. Go to wifi settings, select advance setting then in option 'wifi on during sleep' just select "Never". your Battery problem solved :-)
the new ICS update has another issue. Firstly it deleted my extra files on my phone drive like movies etc. Secondly in the Storage Option in Settings , it wrongly identifies the external_sd card drive as the phone usb storage drive and due to this it does not show the correct amount of free space available on the card.
galaxy note is a gr8 fone..bt lacks the quality of d super amoled hd display..it has a yellow spots at some places on the screen..they r nt very prominent..nd also some notes hve a line dividng the screen, one half is yellowish than d other 1....its a gud fone bt lacks build quality..
UK. I had BIG LAG issues after updating to ics. My phone is pure stock and i updated through kies. Everytime i came out of an app my phone had to reload all its widgets. I read a lot of talk abkut factory resets and brick stories. I went for it cos i would still be under warremty... Now its sweet... No lag and is faster than ever. Instant music... Gallery and all apps open faster so my advice if ur having issues.. Save all you can to your memory card and reset your baby :-)

I've updgraded to ICS and faced battery issue. Today i went to samsung service center and they admitted that ICS is more power hungry than GB, and more complicated too. So they asked me if i want to reset my note to GB and i did. They said if in the future iwish to upgrade to ICS, i should do that at the service center.
ICS is good. It is more fluid, faster browser, and you get s-memo. But until samsung fix this battery issue, i think i'll stick to GB.

All of Note's normal systems (standby, screen, phone idle, Android OS, core apps, systems) came to 94% of the battery usage of those 4 days!
Try giving us a realistic stats of normal usage than 4 days of probably 2 hours worth of looking at pictures!
A much as I would like my Note's charge to last for days on a charge, that's not realistically happening when I use it as my main internet surfing and downloading device. I can say I'm half the time online during the day, at times listening to internet radio and downloading torrents. I CHANGE to a fresh battery normally at every 7 hours or so and I regularly would go through 2 fresh battery charges daily, with a 3rd one ready just in case.
Make full usage for what was designed for, and not just an accessory that you pull out to show people (your business, anyway).

Many people are complaining regarding poor battery life after ICS updation, But i am very satisfied with battery after ICS updation. This is evidence: Please must watch it....
I think that it is a fantastic phone-tablet. I got it about a week ago and i am preety much impressed by its speeds and battery. I think that it is byfar the best that samsung have produced. I just wanted to ask that should i do the update to ice cream sandwich as my phone is just a week old? Or i should just wait for some time??

mhm, 03 Jun 2012yes.it is on all Ics roms.it is one of the new settings that you will see in Ics.try Ics.it is... moreno. battery is very berry important!
now, i kinda regret updating to ics. Note with GB is quite fluid. And yes ICS brings improvement in ui, browsing, and s-memo. But if that sacrifices battery life, i prefer not to update.
But what confuses me is that some poeple claim to have better battery life with ICS. Yet, they never mention how long their notes last with ICS compared to when they're using GB.
Mine with GB can last up to 2days. And now with ICS (and new battery), it can last 24hrs at most (with minimum use)
