another hyped phone after iPhone:

The HD Super AMOLED has light level settings that you can increase so it's not "blurry" during the day.
Some of us got an update that has the the virtual keyboard to be smaller option for one-handed use. Samsung set up an app website only for Galaxy Note specific apps called the S Choice.
It has a very flexible plastic back cover and its all metal sides and Gorilla Glass 2 front, thereafter. It's not as "fragile" as you think.
There is no "problem" handling with its size. If that is the case, than there should be people complaining that their 7 to 10" tabs are "hard to handle"! It's a mini tablet that has more pixels (than an iPad 2)with a phone function that you can pocket. Get a small phone to stop your rants about it being big!
aalok, 31 Jan 2012Both incoming and outgoing calls via Note ear piece?Clarity of the earpiece is dependent of the network. Some calls weren't clear since that had bad reception. Skype voice calls are super clear and loud.

What new battery? Is it more than 2500 mAh but maintains the same form for the Note? And it's first quarter of the year for the ICS update, not mid.
Give us the links to your claims and check your sources!

And for the love of logic, stop complaining about running out of power if you hard use the Note and get extra batteries and a desktop charger! Yes, you can change the battery!

freestyle_devil, 31 Jan 2012I bought this phone here in Taiwan but I used only for 8 hours in a single charge. Is this normal?Yes, continuously.
I just want to say that Samsung S3 is available now and the specs are awesome, It has better proccesor and better camera. I'm so happy with my note but so pissed off because Samsung are making a new super phone every 4-5 months, You will never be able to keep their latest cell phone lOl. and for all Samsung s2 and SGN users, I found on sansung website that the 3 days bettery life battery will be available soon and the ice cream sandwitch (Android 4.0) will be availbe by the mid of feb. 2012.
I challange anyone here to find how you can change your SMS ring tone to a ring tone that you copeid it from your PC! lOl

1- if there are different between galaxy note made in Korea ,Vietnam & china .

Hani, 30 Jan 2012I heard that Samsung are going to make a new battery with 3 days battery life this year. Anyon... more3days talk time battery life technology is not possible currently in Li-ion batteries used currently in mobiles. If they did the size of battery (and hence the mobile) will be too much.
Hani, 30 Jan 2012Hi atome, would you please tell me exactly how you got 2 days battery life ?i got 4day and a half with single charge. Includes moderate internet usage and few short games
I have Galaxy Note (GT N 7000 - baseband version
N7000 XXKK5)from around months its great phone, but i have 1 huge problem. I noticed that my internet is very unreliable and slow (im using mobile internet from Mtel - bulgarian operator). Web pages need ages to open.I thought operator mobile internet is slow but after i changed my sim car to my old phone (HTC Legend) internet speed was fine and web pages are displayed smooth and fast. Done a lot of testing with same result ;/ If any1 have solution pls help
(Phone is with basic store settings - havent changed them so far).If any1 can help solve this issues will be very glad. Tnx in advance
using it for the last 3 days ,no issues yet ,battery with screen on 5 hours non stop ,not bad
The galaxy note is great for watching movies, to draw a picture, create something and many more & feel free to do anything.
You can buy this phone with no doubt.
another hyped phone after iPhone:
though there are tall claims; while coming into practicality a reasonable user ( who tries almost all apps in the phone )gets only 6-7 Hrs of battery backup ( 2500 mah Sucs coz of its screen ): on multiple exposure to outsourced apps the phone hangs.
only some goods things being screen resolution, touch sensitivity.
on using in sun (though super amoled ) the display blurrs.
with the existing android version in this note ( no specific layers developed for this phone ) pronounces no uniqueness.
a big problem is handling not only the size but also the very fragile plastics
if you are very particular about note ; go for it
After more than a month, I have noticed that
1. calls are very clear
2. Display is superb, I can watch tv channels on the Go
3. S-pen is great, I write everything; from sms, to my notes
4. Battery depends of course with usage;
i). Browsing using net work = 8hours
ii). Browse using Wlan = 6hours
iii). Using phone as Wifi hotspot = 6hours
iv). Watch live streams = 4hours
v). Call on skype = I was able to do 2hours (40% battery)
