They have a usual 500 charge cycles. To put it simply, each time you charge, the process of putting in the power charge produces some chemical byproduct that builds up to retard retention of electrical current. I'm not an expert of the exact science of how the lithium-ion battery works with all the science jargon, but I think we can practice what Iphone users can't do to instantly replace the battery with a fresh one. Just buy the official desktop charger and a battery, that cost about $40 in all. I already have a portable power pack and I use that to charge the drained battery in my bag.
Advantages of having an extra battery:
1. You need not worry about conserving and or running out of power constantly.
2. Less possibility of your phone exploding while charging by just plugging the power adapter. It happened to a friend's HTC HD phone.
3. The phone is not bulkier if you use one of those special external battery extender. It's like charging while you are using the phone, and ruins the original battery faster.
1. Hassle of carrying that extra battery and charger, although they are small as a dumb phone in your pocket.
2. Hassle of opening and closing the back cover of the Note to replace the battery.
It's simple enough to avoid the probability of a combustion and battery longevity. You can always have the drained battery charged using the external charger when you get home while your phone is just in standby while you sleep. It helps if you use Juice Defender app for power conservation.

Sahil Arora, 21 Dec 2011thanks for the help. i checked the entire manual it does not have any way to restrict the sms ... moreyou should change the words capacity of your text. if its 500 words, then you write more then that it will turn to mms no more sms. change it to more words capacity
I have Galaxy note. you can use Galaxy note either with or without the pen, So do not worry. The only problem is that most of the time you can't work using one hand. For those who have eye-sight problem it is suitable since it has bigger size plus that fact that its update to 2.3.6. enables you to get bigger font size for contacts and sms.
The Samsung Galaxy battery is not good. I charged my phone after one day of using (with standby of course), the battery becomes empty.

deep111111, 22 Dec 2011Waitin desperately for ICS will make it super fastAccording to some literature I came across, the 2.3.6 fixes some bugs for the Nexus S. My region service does not offer the 2.3.6. update. No mention of any power conservation or even in the .5 version.
Let's just wait for the Ice Cream Sandwich update. That face unlock would sure be very useful. I hope someone makes an app that records the faces of unauthorized users and sends via email for added security. Yeah, who-tried-to-steal app.

I am using a 32gb memory card in my note which has 16gb internal memory, SO total makes it to 48gb and yet the phone is running extremely smooth and its fast..After the 2.3.6 update barrtry bckup is also good... SO GO FOR IT....
IS there any indication on the LED light if there is any missed call? How it works?
guys here iam after updating to 2.3.6 ,battery draining fast ,standby time reduced ,bad update ,anybody else faced this problem let us know
So do i have to use the stylus pen when using this phone ?
because i don't like using them and if not using the stylus will reduce the touch usefulness then i don't want it
please answer me I'm going to buy this tomorrow

the specification says the Note can have 16G/32G internal memory..any one has ever seen the 32G or anyone knows when will it be out.
if there is choice of 16G and 32G available in the market. which one you will choose?
will the 32Ginternal memory slow down the the Note or will it perform faster just like you adding ram to your computer??
Thanking for reply in advance.
tay, 22 Dec 2011ok i did the update via ota but the phone show the adroid version is 2.3.5. is this normal Hi Tay. You should try again for 2.3.6 update using OTA. Cause, Samsung is ensuring that all its high end phones are made to reach 2.3.6 Gingerbread before it releases Ice cream sandwich. Though 2.3.5 is ok, still 2.3.6 is really a good update. It saves your battery a lot.Go for it.Try and try until you get the latest version.
