Excerpt: People thought I was crazy. Now its 2013 and everyone wants a phablet. This was and still the original champ. Loved everything about it. Granted I got tired of TouchWiz but this phone was still the best at everyhting. Phone calls are clear, screen quality is superb, touch screen is responsive and the camera is still one of my favorites. The build is great overall and after 3 years of use the plastic materials are still in great shape.
Excerpt: Been using this phone less then 2 years and I can't wait to change it when the contract is up, this phone isn't tough enough like iphone, the interface still sucks, I still get lost when trying to find a certain pictures, the battery is really bad, even on idle, imagine with 70 percent batt before going to bed, it might be dead by morning, even without touching it. It auto run apps on idle, I tried using Juice Defender, but it doesn't help much now.
phone without stylus, andc continuous flashing display
8 October 2013
Summary: I ordered this phone through Tablet Distributors. I got the phone on October 7 2013. Upon opening the phone, I noticed that the phone came without the stylus. how upsetting. the phone was sealed, but upon opening the device, the phone looked dirty and tampered with. I contacted Amazon and the told me that they will refund part of my money because the phone did not come with a stylus pen.
Summary: I ordered this phone expecting to have a great experience with it, but as soon as I received it and inserted my att go phone sims card in it, it said no registered network....It won't let me make phone calls or anything! I'm really upset with this problem. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening??? I know that my sims card works because it was working perfectly fine in my other phone and the Note is supposedly suppose to be unlocked..
Summary: I ordered SGH I717 on Sept 3rd. Got it Sept 13th. I'm a T-Mobile customer and i was looking for a device that would work on T-Mobile (Re-farmed) 1900mhz 3G Network & LTE 1700/2100 mhz When i looked at the bands this device supports it was a match. So i purchased this device. Shipped with Android 4.0 i updated it to 4.1 through Samsung Kies on my laptop. I live in Columbia, SC and T-Mobile has been refarming the 1900mhz for 3G so unlocked AT&T devices can have 3G/HSPA.
Summary: Pros: Note has great screen, really nice colors, Super Amoled really shows off the difference. Phone is great for those people who want something between the regular smartphone and a small tablet. Battery can last one day of moderate usage. Cons: Software that came pre-installed is awful. Note is lagging, constantly running out of memory, applications randomly closing or taking MINUTES to start up (yes, minutes). I would try some custom roms.
