compare with 2.3.6, this 4.0.3 does drain battery 30% faster at least. i was thinking maybe the cpu overclock than previous version, thatz y it perform faster n more functional. hope samsung can come out an improve version very soon. otherwise need to bring charger when going out.
Hi guys resently i update my note GB to ICS but there is no actual samsung what announce before releseing ICS that is spell correcter and angry brids and primimum suite of s- note
I am so disopponted about is Glaxy note, now i am reliasing why iam not purchased Apple Iphone 4s, so please post if there any chance to improve my phone
fail ICS upfrade!
more disadvantage than advantage that comes out of it, especially the battery life which is even shorter!
all the good features r killed when Note is dead coz of battery, period.
sudnt have bought Note if eventually left with dissapointment!
Spoks, 26 May 2012I think this 4.0.3 update is not yet stable... hoping that samsung will release a stable ICS f... moreI don't have the same problem as you, but the keyboard input freezes from time to time. You would need a restart to get out working again!
My update version seems not to have that internet browser screen invert function, under the accessibility setting tab.
I think this 4.0.3 update is not yet stable... hoping that samsung will release a stable ICS for GNote soon... the video app is always crashing: "Unfortunately, video has stopped."
the "restart" function always revert the wallpaper mode to lanscape when you set it in portrait mode (single screen) thus showing a black bar on the sides...
guys, any one of you using "Smart App Protector Pro"? I guess its not compatible with ICS yet? It does not open on start up compared to when i was still on GB 2.3.6... Do you have any suggestion for an app protector (free without add, if ever) that works well with ICS?
thanks in advance...
[deleted post]Well how did u update through kies after rooting the phone...
According to me ROOTING the phone... was one of my worse experience... It will RUIN the device...
Note my Point YOUR GPS IS NOT GONNA WORK ANYMORE... if u root once... ONCE ROOTED YOUR PHONE CANNOT BE RETURNED BACK TO ORIGINAL FACTORY SETTING as which is possible nowadays in IPHONE by taking a backup so after JAIL BREAKING the device than also it can be returned back
BECAUSE OF ROOTING MY GPS STOPPED WORKING ... n my whole time was gone to set this atlast my memory got corrupted .... n i had to sell S2....
NOTE IS ALREADY HAVING GREAT FEATURES ... ALL LEGALLY so why should we root ....
TO OPEN admin rights is other thing ... BUT IT ISNT benifit to us ... The normal setting provide us much easier...
IF U ROOT ONCE U CANT COME BACK TO "LEGAL VERSION" thats all i meant to say ! Root but keep in mind what i had said ...
gerry, 25 May 2012Already updated to ICS (version 4.0.3)here in the Philippines. Everything nice EXCEPT that bat... moreIs this ICS update Genuine...Or u did rooting!
in how much hrs does it drain after a lot of heavy usage!
Charge the battery to 100% let it run ryt out then charge to 100 3 times aswel
Its of no use…my note indian model is hanged when i put new ics in my phone/./.,its slow and not working properly….dont use it as it get FORCE CLOSED…..SAMSUNG should improve it…it has bugs and not stable in galaxy n ote in india…..
I got my note updated to ICS but I feel its now slower and battery drains faster than gingerbread
I saw a post earlier saying there should be an option to invert the screen while browsing wich saves alot of battery as the ts the whites on Web pages that rince battery on amoleds. If you go setting then accessibility there's an option for inverted colour at the bottom
i had serious battery issues initially i then updated to ddlp8 wich is the offical ics for india but works on any phone i updated using odin you can find instructions here http://androidadvices.com/upda...-3-firmware/ this doesnt root the phone or increase the flash counter its the official update from the kies servers
D.J XactiX, 25 May 2012Great bro...provide me XDA link of it !!!Ram still seems alot higher than gb but have had my phone of charge since 6 30 this morning in 11 hours has gone down to 76% with 2 5 minute phone calls 30 mins of playing fish live (sad I know), and another 30 mins Web browsing plus a bit of messing around with. Nova launcher 25 % fr that is pretty respectable I think. Have had the brightness on medium mind on full brightness probs would. Have used double
D.J XactiX, 25 May 2012Great bro...provide me XDA link of it !!!http://androidadvices.com/update-galaxy-note-n7000-with-official-ddlp8-ics-4-0-3-firmware/ I used this not seen it on xda this site explains things well and is very simple took me bout half hour all together most of tht waiting for the firmware file to download lol
hey guys! if you go to setting>developer options in Ics you can find some interesting thongs.there are some new options that can increas battery life.
[deleted post]use odin to update to ddlp8 m8 solves the batter issues is very quick and smooth no lag on homescreen or anything
Time to share the xperience guys.
I have upgraded my Note from GB to ICS on the same day it was released....I am talking about the Indian region ICS 4.0.3.
After waiting for so long what I found is dissapointment.
Alright then let me start with bad about ICS 4.0.3 Update for Galaxy Note.
1) When I had GB 2.3.6 my Note RAM consumption was 350-400 and after killing all the task it use to go to 295 but after installing ICS 4.0.3 it always stays at 450-500.
2) Coz of more usage of RAM it wont allow you to do multiple task at the same time and if you try to that then phone will start lagging and will become unresponsive .
3) If you are using Note for more than a month then you will easily come to know that GB was quicker and lagging free compare to ICS 4.0.3.
4) Now if I talk about the apps compatiblity ,ICS 4.0.3 comes with a one plugin pre-installed which is MusicFX,what it do is if you try to install and open and music apps like Winamp Player,Volume Boost+,Equalizer (Paid Version)...etc then your note will stop responding for a minute and you will get an error message for an example " Unfourtanely,Winamp has stopped".
Fact is MusicFX which is getting used in ICS 4.0.3 development is actually a 3rd party app which we can downloaded from Play Store and its copatible with GB too.
5) I was expecting some kind of a changes in TouchWiz UI like the ways we have other ICS running handsets but s the same no difference at all except the settings option...no extra or new widget provided too.
6) Battery drains very very quickly because of high usage of RAM.
Now lets see what are the good in ICS 4.0.3,
1) MusicFX which came pre installed really made big difference in music listening quality.The sound output is far better than GB.
2) Web Browsing is improved a lot...Browser is faster than ever.
3) Touch response is fairly optimised.
4) Data Usage control option is the best part in ICS
Thats all guys ....Now M going home and will use ODIN to get my fav & stable GB 2.3.6 back on my Note and will use JIG to get my warranty back.
Thanks for wasting ur time on reading my review.
Thanks & Regards
