    Galaxy Note

    I know I'm not the only one here with one. How is it going for you?

    Last weekend I finally bit the bullet and did the upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. Now the battery barely lasts a day, and almost all of the consumption is GPSD, even though I have GPS disabled.

      I've got the note 3 and GS3, I use them both for beta testing app dev and the Note3 is fantastic, but a little heavy after awhile. I even can now use it one handed (even in the massive rubber case I have for it).

    Battery back-up is a problem for me too....

    I always have to carry charger with me, in case of emergency I may need it.......

    Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 are brilliant smartphones - essentially, the one that can be deemed the best is the one that caters to everything you're after in a phone.

    Just got a Galaxy Note 3...

    And the battery lasts 1 day with heavy usage, 3 days with low usage.

    Also it's shiney!

    yeah, and S Pen are the most accurate pen for phone ever.

    I even tried some other pen on Ipad, but cannot write and sign exactly compare to what appeared in Note.

      I agree with you. The S Pen are perfect.

    So... when is Note 4 going to be available for sale?

    Can't wait since I resolved not to buy a Note 3 before that :)

    Galaxy note 3 is now available at much lower price. In fact for 233 pounds as of today. I had bought a used one earlier, however now I would soon buy it as price is much attractive.

    What the price of Galaxy Note 4 and 5 now. Anyone know what's the price of these two smartphones?

    Note 4/5

    Not that expensive, if you go for a used one (ie end of contract) and the previous owner has been careful with it. I'd spring for a new battery however as mine has failed in less than 1.7 years.

    Interestingly the main problem with the other unit is a bad screen: some of the early ones burn in with the keyboard really badly if you use it frequently.
