Let me be absolutely clear about what I see about that light blue tint "problem" you might see at some 2 to 3 degrees of viewing the super AMOLED screen of the G Note - the color seems a very translucent light bluish tint, that you might not even notice unless someone told you. This is only very noticeable when the screen is white and the light bluish tint been seen probably due to the gorilla glass refracting the white light.
It's like the sky being seen blue (but not that extreme in this case) since the water molecules refract or bend the white light from the Sun. The frequency of white the light is being bent results in blue.
Would you be watching or reading with your phone 2 to 3 degrees and complain that the light bluish tint is enough to get your money back? Until they invent glass that absolutely does not refract or bend light at those extreme angle, I'm statisfied with the Note.
Had it in my hands for a while. I own an SII, this Note was a friend's.. The screen on this one is barely better than the one on SII. Eventually both him & I are convinced about the fact that Note cannot be used as a Normal Hand Phone. He so much likes the size of my SII and after using each other's phone we are to conclude that going for the Note instead of SII is sheer waste. You pay 150$ extra for the big phone, having hardly any difference except the bigger screen. Moreover, my dear friend admitted the fact that having such a big device had its portability issues (that's where he fell in love with mine. :D) and it was a serious blow to his privacy on the go. I mean, seriously people, not many of us like other people peeping onto our screens when we're chatting or typing texts or emails. Hifing stuff like that on a 5.3" Tablet-Phone is a challenge! :D
Even I feel, at times, that the 4.3" screen on my SII draws much public attention, especially if I have a pic or video playing on my phone.
The S-Pen is awesome. It also works on my SII but it's more fun on the bigger Note! It's avery unusual device folks. Samsung has been at its best lately. :)
It has been 5 days recieving my SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE from flipkart for 32500 RS with free filp case!!!!!There's a good reason why I beleive the Galaxy Note is the best phone on the planet as of now.
First impression that people get is it would be way too big to hold in hands. Believe me - it's bigger than SII and any other phone in market BUT not at all bulky! Easily goes in pocket and is easy to use.Its size is perfect and fits easily in my pocket!!!!! ;-)
SPen/SMemo - these are what takes this phone to the top! No stylus is not a backward step at all-- infact Samsung did a pretty amazing job with it and it's super-smooth to draw/write.S-PEN is good!!!!!Really good!!!!!And its very helpful!!!!!
Barometer, Glonass - iPhone 4s doesn't have it yet! These are primarily used in the phone to enhance the phone's GPS locks thereby being more accurate, fast & consuming less battery by quickly acquiring locks. Barometer can also be used for other things (measuring altitude etc.) once apps are developed for it.
1.4GHz Dual Core Processor - Awesomely fast!
Display:My SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE does not have any screen issue!!!!!I think i am LUCKY!!!!!
Gaming:Brothers in Arm 2 HD,Asphalt 6 Adreline HD,Radiant HD ETC and all high end games run perfect and smoothly without hangings and foce closes!!!!!Its a perfect gaming device!!!!!Also now CHAINFIRE 3D SUPPORTS SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE!!!!!Check on xda!!!!!
Gesture Recogniztion:Really all gestures of GALAXY NOTE are awesome and good!!!!!For more information about gesture type "samsung galaxy note gestures" on google search bar!!!!!
Camera:All 1080p and 720p videos after recording are seen ultra clear!!!!!Also due to 8mp camera everything is good,pictures are really clear like anything,Also zooming (4x and normal) is awesome!!!!!Also 2mp fromt camera is good in light and for video calling.Also LED FLASH is great to take photos in night.Photos taken in night by led flash are just great and bright n crispy n no words to mention its camera beauty "lolz"!!!!!
ANDROID OS UPGRADE:DONT WORRY FRIENDS IF YOU ARE CONFUSED TO BUY THIS PHONE DUE TO YOU ARE NOT SURE WHETHER IT WILL GET 4.0 ICS (ICE-CREAM-SANDWICH) UPGRADE THEN STOP THINKING IN 2012 TILL JAN-MAR SAMSUNG IS GOING TO UPGRADE TO ICS!!!!!AND THIS HAS BEEN ANNONCED OFFICIALY BY SAMSUNG!!!!!GOOGLE SEARCH IT AND SEE!!!!!!

I WILL SUGGEST ANYONE TO BUY THIS!!!!!
100% RECOMMENDED TO BUY!!!!!
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND BUY WITHOUT WORRIES!!!!!
-LOVE SAMSUNG,LOVE ANDROID,LOVE GSM ARENA!!!!! :) :) :) :) :)
Very good phone, reasonable as tablet substitute. The design of the Note has, however, one major flaw: the location of the volume and power keys. It would be better, in my opinion, to position them where they would be a little more difficult to reach but not subject to being accidentally pressed.
STUFF, 12 Dec 2011first of all, its other person who complain about the blue tint, i just agreed with him.
well... moreDo you own one? I do. And I am not complaining about the light blue tint, and I do not see it being relevant at that extreme angle. Perhaps they can perfect that in their next development, thanks to your uncensored comments.
I would, if you have closely been reading my comments, would wish the battery goes on longer for a mere 3.5 hours of internet browsing, and longer than 2.5 hours of sketching. Music playing, video playbacks, and word processing seem to have decent performances. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it processes an 800 by 1280 screen. Battery capacity will always be am issue for all gadgets.
We both have our own opinions. My opinion is based on actual day to day experience, and not by a secondary or tertiary sources. I'm pretty satisfied with this unit, considering I've been doing graphics with computers for a long time and this unit has my approval for its digital painting capabilities. It's the only one that has a mini Wacom pen and it works ok. To have that power at your finger tips lets us leave our desktop or laptops for awhile. Ideas and concepts being captured electronically and communicated instantaneously through time and space to others is pretty awesome. I trust that there will be more better units in the future, but for now, the Galaxy Note has the right stuff.
Don't Buy The Note ..... blue tint when the phone is tilted.... i'll reply My Comment Every Day .... Don't Beleive Anyone Who Said There Is No Blue TINT And It's Normal ...No It's Not.
hi. my note took 5 hrs to get charged from 5% to 100% for the past 2 days. now it just took 3 hrs to get charged completely, is it may be coz the battery was new & the first couple of charges takes longer time??
also i have checked with my friends who own it that if i am charging it from 4-5% to complete 100% it takes longer time however if i am charging it from 10% it charges to 100% in just 2&half hour. i dont understand the reason.
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2011While what you are saying is absolutely true, with all the break thru in screen and processor ... moremy comment may not be conclusisve as I only have a chance to play with it for less than a week and it has to go back to the manufacturer.
There is serious lagging, eg 5 sec, when i took a photo. u tell me if this phone is ok.
Hai guys.., I am nt such an expert wid android mobiles.., so can any1 of u all could help me..? I am planning to take galaxy s2 but ma bro said me u better go for galaxy note..! Wen I serched on this site.., I could find many complaints..! Is this true..?' which mobile is de best s2 or note.......?
don 2 , 12 Dec 2011plz don't buy galaxy note , it has lot of problems. I'm a galaxy note user for 1 week and my phone went back to the manufacturer and god knows when i will get it back from them.
if the phone work properly, it is the best phone ever produced to-date. but, too bad. i appreciated that fact for just a day, after that everything went wrong. the 1st HD AMOLED screen and camera shooting 1080p and the phone auto shut down at the 2nd night without me knowing why.
enough of complaints, you decide whether to buy this phone. I thought I will not have problem for buying the highest end phone, besides burning my wallet. I was wrong. I wrote this without my phone with me and I paid USD700 for this defective phone, where Samsung need to change the LCD screen and upgrade the OS to fix the defects I complained.
TheNeighbor, 11 Dec 2011Man, I think you are too nit picking about the blue tint at that extreme angle. I see it too. ... morefirst of all, its other person who complain about the blue tint, i just agreed with him.
well its part of the problem, and here people complaining is normal, that way Samsung will fix it and do better next time! ever heard "learn from mistakes"??? guess u havent!
u need to do this: either contribute something useful here doesnt matter pro, con, advantage, disadvantage OR u shoud just keep it shut, zip it!
i care bout Samsung thats why i let them know the problem to fix it, to make it perfect.
u on the other hand just try to live with the defect without complaining, it doesnt make u look good, but u just look clueless not-so-smart person who doesnt understand a thing about this device & just happen to have 1 !!! pity.
Superb.. with more msg abd mail handling the stylus handwriting do help a lot..
I think the world in my hand I use before the galaxy note all handset of galaxy family galaxy -s,galaxy s2 but this is the oresome super fast browsing super fast scrolling excellent audio quality both in headphone and threw speakars brilliant display there is nothing inthe display of galaxy s and s2 compare galaxy note no lagging great satisfaction for me well done Samsung I think you are truly top of the world
JiFAW, 12 Dec 2011Need Help! my dilemma right now is how can I transfer data from the phone memory to the usb st... moredownload the application APP2SD from the android market. It should solve all your mentioned problem.
HD2 user, 12 Dec 2011I am a HD2 user running on android. very tempted to get a galaxy note. but doubting the perfor... moreBut you can't be comparing the G Note with the HTC HD2 specs... They are leagues apart. Have you tried the Note? I have it nearly a month, and it is absolutely a fine piece of techology. No hangs as some people are mentioning. The slide transition are smooth, just like the demonstrations you see in youtube.
Does anyone has the same problem as me?
Transfer apps from phone to SD card. Then connect the phone to PC for mass storage file transfer.
After complete and unplug, the phone start to reboot non-stop.
Any solution? Is this the 2.3.5 bug??
Thanks and regards.
