Re: Note Vs Nexus ! Lets Solve?


Note already has got the ICS update(for people who did not know but still don't fail to comment).

I got both the note and nexus, i like em both. I like the more clean UI of the nexus but touch wiz is sill more functional for me. The note as a device hands down is better suited for multimedia, browsing than the nexus any day.Note is also much faster than the nexus.

Not always everyone likes a device they buy, if don't like then try other devices and just move on, there is a whole lot of other devices to choose from.
@zombie

let go of the note, it is selling like hot cakes so it will be easy to sell it in eBay. Buy the iPhone4s you might be mighty satisfied.

Re: Note Vs Nexus ! Lets Solve?

Oooh! The Note got an unstable usable build of ICS. Let's all rejoice!

Oh wait! Just remembered! The Nexus has gotten a stable, buttery smooth build of Jelly Bean.

Re: Note Vs Nexus ! Lets Solve?

But in all honesty, I was "told" off in this thread because I didn't do fact checking about "Note" not having ICS... well there is a reason why I had that perception.

2 days ago, I was in Chroma showroom to checkout the Galaxy S3 (which was quite up to date and had the 3.0.15 kernel along side 4.0.4) I was pretty impressed with the display piece (but hoped that I didn't have to endure the ugliness that is called TouchWiz.) I turned my attention next to the Galaxy Note sitting next to it. I picked it up and was greeted with a "updated" 2.6.x kernel and Android 2.3.6. I asked if this has the latest update was told, yes.

Hence my assumption that "Android 2.3.6" is the latest version of Android officially available for the Galaxy Note "officially." Since the OP was reluctant to try modding, I also said accordingly "less chance of getting an update to ICS via the Software Update mechanism."

Was I wrong?

Go to a Apple store and there is 99/100 chance that all the phones/devices on display will have the latest builds of the corresponding operating systems available. Not so much with the competition. Or am I wrong again?

ah, so that is the reason why them people say touch wiz is inspired from apple iOS.Now i know the source of ugliness, i mean thanks for the enlightenment.

BTW you saw the note at chroma but you check out apple products in apple store? did you get a chance to check the apple products in chroma and see if they were running on their latest firmware?

I don't guess chroma people update the software/firmware/OS...s3 was released with ics..note wasent...and the store guys don't know much about the devices...

Apple doesn't actually have their "own" store in India (unfortunately.) They retail via Croma, Reliance, Imagine, etc. And yes, all the iDevices in the Croma store were up to date (5.1.1 for the iPhones and the iPads) and 10.7.4 for the Mac Book Pros. Also, they had a Apple employee (Apple Genius as they call it) present in the show room as well answering questions for customers.

Re: Note Vs Nexus ! Lets Solve?

The deal with reliance is actually apple store, but chroma and others have different setup. If they keep all apple products up to date with firmware then good for them.

Awesome. But still won't come to the actual feel of a proper "Apple" run store. Even the Imagine shops in Bangalore are similar. They only sell Apple products.

It is possible that the Apple stores keep only the latest builds while others may not be able to do this for all models because of logistical problems. There are some advantages of offering minimal choices to your customer.

Typically a Apple shop has only one phone to maintain (sometimes maybe 2). Other mobile phone shops in India typically have scores of other phones to maintain. Last month 21 new smartphones were launched in India. So it is quite possible that some models are not kept updated with the latest OS all the time. Check this out before buying any phone.
