I charge the spent battery with a portable power bank in my backpack. The 6600 mAh power bank can charge up to 2 drained 2500 mAh Note batteries. I recharge cycle 3 different batteries since I use my Note a lot WITHOUT having to plug in. With my arsenal, I can be mobile up to 35 hours of continuous very HEAVY usage, if needed. But carrying the charged extra batteries would just do the trick and recharge at home.
That full draining of battery and charging with the phone off can prolong the battery's life. It's also a precautionary method to avoiding a faulty battery from exploding inside your phone while recharging while on. A friend had unfortunately experienced that with his HTC.
i hv used s2 for more than 6 months, n recently bought galaxy note. the autofocus while taking video in Note is not comparable with s2, because while taking video of macro subject Note does'nt auto zoom like s2.

Had used it less than 1 week, other than the size, really superb
But for middle-age to elderly,the 'massive screen' is an advantage when reading it is so easy and no need to put on a reading glass if we are wearing spectacle for shortsightedness.
I am not complaining about the size,as those of you feel that it is too big, don't buy it, it is not make for those who like elegant phone
Note is for those who enjoy reading alot from the phone where even the iphone is tiring after a while.At the same time we do not want to carry a small tablet n phone at the same time
Those who really use a phone as a phone only(maybe with sms),then get a cute small phone n a tablet,but don't complaint
My few days experience tell me that in the software part, Android is still not as smooth as Apple, it cannot be denied. Iphone is cute n is an art in itself, but for clarity on reading (prolonged), it lose out to Samsung Note here
Im planning to buy the galaxy note, just few questions how is the sunlight visibility of note and how loud is the ringing volume and also how is picture quality of galaxy note when pics are clicked at night time or in dark

At first i was excited with the size and now a little uncomfortable with it. Carrying it to my work and using in busy times with two hands. You are right about my hand. I am gona upgrade. Again, sorry about my previous words. Bye.

You just need time knowing the device and research facts. I can imagine you have smaller hands. I'm tired of hearing owners of the Note about "hard to handle with one hand". You got this. Use it properly and it has a whole lot of benefits. If you don't like it, get rid of it and settle for something that suits you best.
As I have mentioned, the 2.3.6 OS update has the OPTIONAL smaller virtual key pad layout. Check the keyboard settings. I'm sorry as coming out as harsh.

The battery will slowly increase capacity after a few cycles. Hard use time after that will be 7 hours. Medium usage will be 12 to 18 hours. Light usage will be 1.5 days. I have observed this from the extra original Note batteries.
Rose, don't comment if you don't own the Galaxy Note. You obviously are just picking up buzz words and using then to sound like you actually know what the Note is all about.
DESIGNERICON1984, 09 Feb 2012hello note owners, my note's battery life suddenly started falling down ... before on standby ... morehmm, sorry to hear that. Big screen = more power. When the charge is done, you are left witg a passport sized smartphone. That screen is awesome though.
hello note owners, my note's battery life suddenly started falling down ... before on standby mode it used to fall 2% in four hours or so but now its 10% in four hours....is it due to some applications i downloaded from market or its a virus attack?? im experimentin by uninstalling recent downloaded apps ......but still its same....any guess guys???please help me out ....I DONT WANT TO RESET MY NOTE!!!as i have many apps....i have installed many apps long back but it worked fine ...suddenly it started this mess...

What are you on about "fatter"? I think you meant 2mm THICKER than the 7.7. Do you know how 2 mm is in actual? You should read their specs closer - they are priced within the same cost range, the 7.7 has only a 3MP camera and no Wacom S pen. In fact, the Note pricing has gone down a bit.
GSMArena,you should change specs for screen protection.It`s not Corning Gorilla Glass!Answer from Samsung support:"We can confirm that the Galaxy Note does not use Gorilla Glass but instead uses our own version"!I hope that it`s good enough (I mean glass protection from Samsung).
Samsung Galaxy Note is fatter than the 7.7 Tab. For this price It should be further slimmer and have 32 GB internal storage. However, having a card slot is an advantage though. And may be due to these factors, the new iPhone might take over its business. Anyhow, one more positive point to end up is, Samsung Galaxy Note is having a full web browser and a Super AMOLED Screen of that size.
High definition display screen uses PenTile matrix reducing known resolution
LED signal; right now there are certainly not almost any flashing lights each time a new push message is certainly received.
Devoted camera key can not be located.
Some sort of many more difficult for to be utilized using single hand as compared to other Smartphone.
Samsung galaxy note n7000 could not continually suit perfectly in just about every pants pocket simply because size of this unique device larger than ordinary Smart phone.
Non hot swappable microSD card.
