I have yet to see Otter make a shock resistant shell for the Note, but I imagine it would really make it bulkier.
Samsung Galaxy Note is a complete feature packed phone. Very Good performance for Browser and other apps. It does fit into the pocket well, unless you wear the skinny types.
I feel the phone is definitely not meant for casual use. Also the phone doesn't seem to be too durable, so have to take care. The screen is scratch resistant , but the rest of the phone body seems to be fragile. In any case after three or four years you would feel the need to have a new phone.
I am not too happy with the Battery, but I believe this is the best you can get with Android phones. If you are a heavy user, but follow general battery saving techniques for android, one time charging shall be required in a day. Display is the biggest battery drainer here. So would suggest to keep the brightness at minimum.
Currently facing problem of connecting the phone in Mass Storage Mode via USB. It doesn't work always. (-:
That is quite irritating. I am suspecting a faulty usb cable. If anyone has faced a similar issue, kindly let me know if there is any solution apart from taking it to the service center.
All in all, you may not be disappointed if you purchased this one, since it definitely has a wow factor about it. It looks very good, works brilliantly as a smartphone, very good for watching movies and videos on youtube. Integration of google apps is quite good. Battery performance is not very good, but still best for Android phones. Apart from the USB issue, I am quite happy with the phone.
I have both the Note and the S2. I'd say S2 is still better. I'm more pleased with it. Just my two cents.

With that on and an hour's worth of HD gaming, my battery got to 7% when I changed to a fresh battery this morning. On normal usage, one charge lasts 18 hours. Don't expect this monster to behave like normal brick phones to last for 3 days, since you use your Note with internet usage and use applications. There are more phones like SE Xperia Arc that are below half of the Note's battery stamina.
You can always get an extra battery. I charge the spent battery in my bag with a charger connected to a portable power bank. I don't have to worry about having to run out of power, and I keep my Note virtually wireless.
Folks with battery problems simple solution exit all application, secondly forget about the live walpapers they consume energy lastly the more junk aplication you installed the more comsumption keep it simple, got my note 2 moinths ago after conditiioning the battery and removing lots of unnesessary applications now my batetr wilo last full 24 hrs with moderate to heavy internet usage, personally at times i work in harsh enviroments and away fro power sources i invested in an 4500 mak battery from mungen power (tp://www.mugen-power-batteries.com, making me goiod for 72 hrs
frnds, m planning to buy this phone as my first ever android+smartphone+tablet... do u really think its worth it?
