Just keep in mind that Samsung is no Apple when it comes to FW updates,looks like he has a new goal now:How to sell more phones to keep his global ranking.!!
Yes on this phone the lag is everywhere,however in the Contacts application is just unbearable, almost 6 seconds lag!! while on the wake up it takes at laest 2 seconds,my 3 years old HD2 on WM does those things instantly!!
software-wise this phone is complete fail.will never get a Samsung again and period.
Phone is not worth buying, it lags , it gets hot (not warm ) nd den d lag is much high...poor samsung service..
PEDddddddddddddddddd, 08 May 2012is this only support micro sim .....????????nope its d std sim size. not d micro version. :-)
Why samsung do not use metal side panel (like iphone) as they are using metallic color on plastic. Main problem is that, few month later that color will be removed and look very odd.
have you ever noticed a lag when the phone is in idle mode and when you clicked the menu button or lock button, there is a 1-2 seconds lag before the screen wakes up... its just so annoying... i thought this phone is fast...
and also, i noticed that its touch response time is delayed... i cant play temple run and even fruit ninja well because the touch response is slow..
is this phone really that dumb ass?
im on the edge of regretting buying this phone..
are there any solution for this problem?
my friend's S2 is much faster (so much faster) than my GNote and i feel humiliated thinking that I paid more than him...

I'm hoping the ICS update with a premium suite for the Note would give us the same stuff the S III can do - Smart Stay eye-tracker, simultaneous camera recording, multiple camera burst, zero camera lag, Smart Voice, and that auto-call function.
Android 2.3.6 is working fine with the Note. It just works. I'm guessing that the delay of our Note's OS update has to do something with the launch of the S III.
If we get the OS update coupled with the benefits of the Wacom S Pen, we'd get something quite more than the S III (of course the quad-core Exynos is something for the S III). The likeliness of us getting an update to Android 4 is becoming more apparent with the official advertisement of the Note's premium suite, Canadian Note users getting them ahead of the rest already and the recent Note demo unit of AT&T with ICS.
If Samsung will stick to their promise of giving us the update for this second quarter period, it would come this month of May.
it was very nice.net in this phn very slow rather than G y
hiten, 15 Apr 2012hey Vinay

SGNOT, 07 May 2012ICS where are you ??? Come on sweetie come to your daddy ...it will be come to grand daddy by the time you get it lol
PEDddddddddddddddddd, 08 May 2012is this only support micro sim .....????????nope its full sim...
Note Lover, 08 May 2012I can't wait for the ICS update for Galaxy Note. When would it be? Any update please.Just read my lips:No F*#*@&G ICS update for the Note,Samsung simply too lazy to develope it for the Exinox with dual core chipset,just wait for the Note 2 with Quad Core or get the SGSIII with the same specs.
Does Somebody know, when G-Note Premium Suite will be release????? Can't wait any longer......
Great tool...thats what any good device needs to be. Just hope samsung can improve the lag on the s-pen. There is an apparent lack of sync between the tip position on the display screen and surface. Also, when using opera mini, there is a hint that the pen is recognised as an input (pointer appears) though you cant move it around without touching the screen which would be nice.
