for all the happy noters i contacted samsung support center both UK and china concerning the KIES , I have posted samsung reply to me what i am confused about and hope some of you experts can decipher for me is how are we supposed to use KIES my understanding was that downloading it from Samsung website automatically would connect and have full use of it , i was not aware samsung kies is country dependent no where did i read that kies would not work ,that it was supported by the country of residence ,yes Samsung downloads other then the language are pretty much the same everywhere samsungs cells are sold ,i am sensing sammy is doing the same thing they did for out past flagship the I8910 never any support or updates,my previous samsung cell phone all came with the 2 Cds one for maps the other for pc studio.I am begining to think sammy fooled us again. i plan on pursuing this issue with Sammy,anyone else experiencing this Kies problem?? would appreciate a reply thnks
jojoba, 18 Jan 2012are you sure? how active is you hands on the galaxy note? it last me like 6 hours top while us... moreMine lasts around 7 hours usage on very heavy usage- continuous (with various combinations of) Bluetooth, 3G, wifi, torrent downloading, surfing, gaming, watching and editing spreadsheets. Carrying an extra battery just lets you not worry about battery usage, and so I just put the pedal down. Why have a powerful unit when you worry about a fixed battery that needs to be plugged in for 4 hours? Get the $25 extra battery and the $20 charger to charge when you get home. You can stay wireless all day!

After lot of surfing about the review i got my new samsung note... As i seen in all the reviews Note is simply stunning B-)..whoever sees ur mobile gonna say "ur mobile is awesome"..its display s tht much impressive..Camera? Its is too much fr a phone to have this wonderful camera!!! Picture quality will b better thn wat u expect...you can buy this mobile without worries...i got a a problem recently...am using vodafone india network Whenever i connect to internet and if a page is loading and at the same time some one is trying to call me,thy get a beep tone fr few seconds thn call get disconnected with error message saying "not reachable". I got panic and changed the network settings and it still didnt work.. Later i checked with other network sim in my mobile(docomo,airtel) there was no problem with those sim...so ultimately problem is with VODAFONE..contacted them and thy are not ready fix my problem...

Can anyone confirm?
nav, 18 Jan 2012yes,it requires a screen guard. battery backup is not as good as expected. hardly survive for ... moreNo, you do not need a screen guard. It has a very sturdy and scratch-resistant glass. Why would Samsung not put Gorilla glass like the S II, Tab variants, or Nexus? Screen guards messes up the whites of the Note's HD Super AMOLED screen. I tried 2 different ones and just took them off as they made it harder to see in daylight. Don't waste money on those-there is no need to put screen guards!
Aum, 18 Jan 2012U know, note can take quantum leaps with HDMI port, an android 4.0 os(or higher;current), buil... moreI am guessing you don't own a Note. You want it smaller at 4.7"? I don't see logic of the complaints of having it smaller. Get an S II variation close to that size. The point of having more than 5" screen is to be bigger with a Tab's resolution for easy reading yet you can still pocket it. The PenTile specs does not matter so much. Tell us, do you honestly physically see the difference with what is an HD Super AMOLED and a Super AMOLED Plus? if anyone can afford to buy this phone, if they want the USB connection, HDMI wired connector, and all the other common accessories like the desktop charger stand, extra battery, then they can spend a few extras for those extra things. You can still connect to other machines and/or accessories like mouse or keyboards wirelessly with Bluetooth or wifi. The Note is guaranteed the Android 4 OS update early this year, officially stated by Samsung. It already has a GPU! It already has a "near professional grade" camera! You should read more or just get one!
Manivannan, 18 Jan 2012Battery life is really good..it last for atleast 1.5 daysare you sure? how active is you hands on the galaxy note? it last me like 6 hours top while using the apps
Hi friends. I've used an MHL adapter by connecting a 16 Gb pen drive to my Galaxy note. I could watch 3 movies at a stretch and still 43% battery remained. I spent only 3 dollars (150 Indian rupees only) to buy MHL adapter. Its really useful and working great. However, I couldn't get an HDMI adapter and surely review once I get it. Believe me, Galaxy Note is really a great great phone.
sanginbc, 18 Jan 2012first of all, do u really need nfc...ok in case you do need it, how often are you going to use... moreif, NFC is not available in Sammy's fone,
its a great shame to even mentioned its name by You.
better avoid label in specification by gsmarena to avoid legal battle this days.
hi every one if any call comes on my note it announces the caller name how to change that setting
Thanks in advance
