I have been using this unit for about 3 months and here are my comments:-
1. Screen size just nice, 2 in one, you carry phone and tabs
2. internet and application speed is excellent
3. graphic also not bad
4. sound quality and loudness is satisfactory
1. agreed with previous user comments, power button location is better on top.
2. specification wrote with tv-out but actually not directly tv out like nokia e6 which can connect to tv directly but have to buy optional gadget, the cost is quiet expensive
3. should have seperately charging socket rather than sharing with usb port which may cause the usb port easily fault due to frequent usage (sync and charging sharing same socket or port)
Other than that generally this set is ok, I rate 8/10

Ashley seh 1234, 15 May 2012Buy a new one, my dear akshay shah 123.hey bro...i m trying my luck....i hav IMEI number ..so lets see if i gets.. i am not loosing hope till now
Just called Vodafone (UK) who informed me that the ICS upgrade to the Galaxy Note is not due until the END of May. I asked if this was unique to Vodafone or in general and was unable to get a firm answer. Anyone else got any news?

I have been Samsung Cell Phones user for long time, I will not claim that I have used/experienced almost all (or at least entire leading/famous)models of Samsung but still I have used quite a few and in between have tasted 2-3 sets of other brands as well but unable to stay away from Samsung for long and that's why after a long wait, I finally purchased GT-N7000 in order to be with my Samsung again.
Initially, when I procured this set, I thought I will give it 8~9 (out of 10 marks) keeping in view its big and beautiful screen, light weight and other characteristics but after moderate use, I can give maximum 7/10 owing to following cons.
A. Wrong placement of power button (instead of being on top, it is on right side) and you are likely to turn-off/suspend the Phone (and/or screen) accidentally while using Camera or other features, which require you to hold the set in both hands.
B. Wrong placement of Speaker (instead of being on top, it is at bottom) and mediocre volume and almost 0% 3D/Surround effect.
C. Camera is good but not what was being expected. I believe (sadly) that IPhone 4S Camera easily beats Note especially in video.
D. No premium touch/finish and all plastic build, especially the back cover seems ready to be broken (do not even think to put scratch on it, it seems like made of Nacho).
Other issues are like no hot swappable SD card, no periodic SMS tome alert (available in majority of Samsung previous models), no light indication regarding missed call/SMS and few other small likewise matters ... battery most of the times is OK for me if I am using it only for calls and messaging (GPS, BT and WiFI turned off and Power Saving enabled).
Now, coming to bright side, it is quite attractive and when you take it out, most likely people around you will ask, hey which phone/tablet is this ... big and beautiful screen, speed is good (enough RAM, ROM and Internal Memory), does not get hot even after extended usage (inclusive HD video watching, which is quite enjoyable on Note. The built-in video and music players are capable to play almost any format you through on it) and number of other cool features.
As nothing is perfect, so in that context, it is a nice gadget especially if you like big and bright screens like me .... so you may give it a try.
AnonD-49695, 15 May 2012hi dear users!
i have some doubts.please spend ur valuable time for me.please.
1.how to tran... moreHi Peter kt ,
1- transfer files , settings-wireless and network - USB utilities , and then on the PC you look in computer and you will find a samsung HD wich is the Phone and open it an ready to transfer both ways .
2- 3G , settings-wireless network-mobile networks-use packet data . thats it
For all those, who want to update their GT-N7000 to official ICS and are unable to do so either through KIES or OTA then please follow the below given link.
I have updated my Note through following the instructions given at the above link, it updated flawlessly and working fine; however what I was anticipating/expecting from this much awaited update (like moving from WinXP to Win7 or likewise), it did not meet that mark and therefore I am sort of disappointed, rest is OK.
The major issue is that after updating from GB to ICS, one can not differentiate the same at a glance and you have to go through menus/sub-menus to understand and feel the changes/improvements. Let us hope for some other worthy future update from Samsung which matches the potential of Note.
