I am the pride owner of Samsung Galaxy Note.

The back cover is meant to flex and be light. It is therefore easy to take off and refit.
If it took a hit to the back cover, say in a fall, I would expect it to absort some of the impact and spring back, rather than crack.
I am the pride owner of Samsung Galaxy Note.
This phone is excellent in all aspect.
Display resoultion is too good compare to SGS2.
Battery life got improved after downloading and installing OTA firmware upgrade.
Music quality on headphones is slightly different as we all know that it comes with DNSe (Digital Natural Sound engine).
Camera picture quality is same as SG I9000.....transformation from 5MP to 8MP is hardly noticeable however good part is it comes with LED flash
Gaming performance is trully unexpected....having Tegra or Quad core is just lame....avoid it...literllay its worth buying.
One the best feature is MHL A/V link to connect you phone with bigger screen and this monster play HD 1080p videos very very very smoothly.
The only worst thing I found in this phone is back cover which is too delicate and very easy to break.
If you are using SGS2 and wants to upgrade then this phone is far ahead of it...I would rather say there is no comparison at all.
Overall rating 9/10 !!!
If you are planning to buy one then dont wait ...Just Get One !!!
Thanks & Regards

That's a big difference! Come on, the Blu only has a 650Mhz or 800Mhz single core processor! I can imagine how hard it's going work and the heat it will be producing! 512 MB ROM and 512 MB RAM won't cut it either.
Dual SIM or not, Blu is really worth the low price you want. Not everyone's smartphone workhorse. If you stop changing your phone every 2 months, you can buy the Galaxy Note and you only spend half the amount you spend in a year.

Best to fully drain your battery, then change to an extra charged one. It saves the battery life cycles. Charge the drained one with a separate charger when you get home.
[deleted post]Why do you say that galaxy note is a big shit of samsung? Do you own a Note? What problem are you facing?

1] Upgrade our firmware to the latest one
2] Try to auto-calibrate the s-pen. Dial *#0*# and do the s-pen test.
It worked for me. Hopefully will work for you. :)
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2012Carefully read the specs of the Blu Studio: http://www.gsmarena.com/blu_studio_5_3-4370.php ... moreDid i say SIMILAR? Read it carefully... i said A LITTLE BIT LOWER SPECS compared to the NOTE plus with a triple times lower the price. The only thing i said similar is the SCREEN and BATTERY LIFE. Don't you get it? Blu Studio 5.3 have dual sim card slot while the Note has only one slot. Is it SIMILAR to you? Well, i am the practical kind of person who will buy much lesser price for A LITTLE BIT LOWER SPECS WITH 3 TIMES LOWER THE PRICE. Anyway, I change my phones almost 6 times a year.
android phones r multi tasking phones,even after getting a very good battery life it will drain fast in android phones n its also heat the phone after heavy usage of apps n games...no idea of spen stylar
I have one question. I have a problem. When I call someone two or three times I got their name three times separately. For example: I call Mike two times and when I look in dialed call I have his name twice. Anyone else?
Perhaps this is not new but I accidentally discovered how to quickly adjust screen brightness by sliding your finger horizontally on your status bar (where the tiny clock indicator is).

It's silly for you to compare the Studio Blu 5.3 with the Galaxy Note as having "similar" specs.
Most of it is less than half the specs of the Galaxy Note! No wonder it's less than half the price of the Note!
Jawad ali, 12 Mar 2012I bought Galaxy Note in December & my battery life is only 6-7 hours on medium usage since... moreFirstly, my NOTE's battery also last for around 6 hours with continuous usage. Is it normal? Any other dudes here may help?
Secondly, my NOTE's phone temperature increase up to 42 ℃ & above after few minutes' browsing. Is it normal?
Thirdly, recently I found that S-Pen touch sensivity seems like not accurate when drawing on a picture file. There is a small variance of distance of touch point. Is it normal? Anyone having the same issue?
Apart from that, I'm still satisfy with NOTE. Thanks for replying.
