Sorry for the siren song.
Do appreciate the pointer about pen, too bad it won't fit in required hole.

Thank you to all the addiction feeding enablers in this thread. Because of your glowing reviews (and the death of my old trusty flip phone) I am now the (shamefully) proud owner of a Galaxy Note.

I walked into the store, resolving only to replace my dead phone with something similar, when there it was. Stark and somehow beautiful like the Monolith in "2001". Normally, I would have passed by thinking "Wow, that's a big a$$ phone!", but you people have awoken a hunger deep within.

Fighting the craving, I stared mouth agape at the object of my new desire until the clerk arrived. The next few minutes are foggy, but I seem to recall someone yelling "I want, I want, I want" over and over again. When the fog cleared from my head, I was standing next to my car holding the Galaxy Note and the paperwork for a voice/data plan (a thing which I once swore I'd never voluntarily have).

So there you go. I now have a Galaxy Note, a data plan, fewer shekels, and a feeling of self loathing. I'm blaming you lot!

[5thWiggles scurries away to search out a case for the Precious. One with a belt clip because his hip is feeling decidedly naked. Also, he needs to find cut-price Minion Chow due to having fewer shekels.]

P.S. If you lose your pen, I can confirm that these (Watcom MP200) work. Just tried the ones I have as spare for my Pocket Edge.
Take Note, (Had to use that ), you are envied among men and women alike.

In fact you along with you precious have become a sex symbol.
Try pulling that out next time you are at a bar.

Size matters!

It's ok, given enough time and self flagellation I'll feel clean again!

Now that I know that the "S Pen" is really just a Wacom Penabled stylus there are many available that are much more comfortable to use(more like a pen than a toothpick )

Won't have to pull it out, just ordered one of these:


Just hope my wife doesn't catch me flashing my "Monolith" at other women!

ROFL!!!

I'm sitting here laughing, catching up on this thread!

Congratulations, 5thWiggle!

I still want a Note. Told my Dad about them and he went and bought one! His first Android anything, first smartphone . . . . He uses it to "play" the stock market, keep up on baseball scores, and play jazz on Pandora. He's most impressed with its hands-free capabilities.

I'm jealous, but I think I'll wait and see what the new one looks like in October -- assuming there is a new one and it does come out then!

Meanwhile, thanks for all the insights and laughter!!

At this point, yeah it would be foolish to pick up a Note when the new one is around the corner.

A friend of mine has a Note and the greenish tint of the screen seems really obvious, especially when viewed at a slight angle rather than straight on. Are your notes' screens the same?

Uh... no. Some would say that it's a bit oversaturated, but that’s how I like it.

Price! It does what I want at a good speed for a good price (after I got some discounts for not upgrading my phone for such a long time). I doubt there is anything Samsung could add, barring direct neural interface, that would make me lust after the newest version so badly that I'd regret getting one now. Plus, I rarely live on the bleeding edge anyway.

No problems with mine. I get a greenish tint, but only at extreme angles. It's more viewable in sunlight than most LCD screens I've seen. Also, it's viewable in both portrait and landscape while wearing polarized sunglasses (it disappears around the 45 degree mark but looks good at 0 and 90 degrees).

Got the latest update to ICS today.
You can now use the S-Pen and sign in on the phone. It can be your name or anything else you prefer.
Supposedly it also has Pop-up video, but I haven't been able to fin how you do it.
Battery life seems better, I now have some 85% Deep Sleep, before it was more like 65%.
