Galaxy Note seems to be an impressive phone.Though, I'm convinced that the phone is meant to be used by both hands.
Have some queries before I decide to purchase this
1. How is the usability of the apps downloaded from android market? Any issues because of its large display?
2. Will their be an update available for ICS?
Got to play around with it yesterday
1) S pen - Wow ... why cant all smart phones have it???
2) Size - bit too big for me .... 5.8 or 5 will be good
3) Android verison 2 --- :(
4) No Dual SIM :(
Can this support Microsoft Exchange email?
All other features are superb but this is a must for me to really consider the unit
Hello everyone. I'm new here and have read the comments about the phone lagging alot.
I have a suggestion. Since the Note is a phone/tablet and is running on gingerbread. I think that might be the case for the lag.
You will have to wait for Ice-cream sandwich to come out and then test it.
I have a feeling the lagging issues will cease and the phone will be all that it is to be.

Got the note about a week ago and just could not be happier. Excellent screen and blazing fast processor are the main advantage over the DHD. Only wish is for Samsung to have something like the HTC Sense which makes the HTC phones more user friendly.
The note might be a bit too big for some but as for me, its just perfect.
Riyaz, 05 Dec 2011Only draw back is its a big Phone .....rest everything is excellent....:)Its size is NOT a drawback but an advantage. It is the size of a small notebook (A6). I love sketching on-location with it. If you feel it's too big and don't need the size for similar artistic and viewing pleasures, you should have gotten the Galaxy S2.
kelo, 05 Dec 2011no support tethering and portable hotspot.That is not true. It has tethering capabilities and is very excellent. You should have a look at the instructions carefully.
Is there any way to find out the compatible Apps/Games available for Note? It would be a disappointment if figure shows only 50% Compatible rate. Need to know before I buy.
3.5 inch will be too small
Arun, 04 Dec 2011Galaxy Note does not support Microsoft Exchange with HTTP Proxy. This is the most drawbacks in... moreRPC over HHTP is for full Outlook which no mobile phone has. Active sync in a front\back end config works fine.

It does everything and more. I thought i have explored all on the phone, just to find out more options and settings today. Crazy! Best i have ever had!
