Google released a statement stating "Today's jury verdict that Android does not infringe Oracle's patents was a victory not just for Google but the entire Android ecosystem."

Android will Now enjoy an enhanced presumption of stability and legal independence. It will also give Google the upper hand in any further attempts to reach a settlement between them and Oracle.

Galaxy Note N7000ZSLPF ICS 4.0.3 Performance

Most important thing is STABLE, ACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE and complete GNOTE Features!

I'm back to my favorites home screens. 

Removed all the default widgets and home screens. Some widget run at the background to get update and effect your note performance.

Basically ICS 4.0.3 HongKong/Taiwan version you will feel smooth and stable.

Quite small number in Quadrant compare to Germany ICS. This is Power Saving Mode

Antutu benchmark.
Acceptable FREE RAM..Don't worry. ICS use the RAM for better apps loading.

 If you wonder what's language available. Here it is. Default would be Chinese.

Good battery performance. Look at the Awake. Reduce to minimum. You should look at this if you want a good battery life. If you use custom rom, look at the Awake interval as well. Frequent Awake, means you will drain your battery fast.

More battery result. Leaving my phone overnight, you will loose 3-5 % battery only.

Application running at the background and sync setting

FREEZE some un-wanted Samsung apps.

List of application SAVE to remove/freeze. Click here

No call recording

Standard ICS Task Manager

NO Force Close so far!

Galaxy Note N7000XXLPY ICS 4.0.3 Performance

After using it for two weeks, this is what I get

Battery usage after a few days ICS installation. Not soo good. The phone keep awake while sleeping...nightmare may be.... hehehhheehe :)

Set off WIFI. Reduce the awake state. No more nightmare.... hehehehe..

Better battery management and last longer. The OS is learning you phone habits and try to maximize the battery usage. See the awake state...reduce to the maximum...

I'm oon Power Saving Mode :). May be this contribute to the better battery usage as well.

Quadrant on the 1st day

3308 only while running Power Saving mode...OS reduce the performance in order to keep the battery longer. But with the power that GNote has, it still smooth running and sliding....

Antutu on the 1st day

Antutu bechmark now...mmmm..quite far reducing the performance ofd GNote...

Don't forget to FREEZE some un-used apps or services.

Overall, the performance of GNote in Power Saving Mode is GOOD and you are having better battery life.


XXLPY + CF-ROOT. Do NOT Factory Reset while on CWM. It might brick your phone. Clear Cache/Dalvik only

How to install N7000XXLPY ICS 4.0.3 (Root + CWM)

Galaxy Note. How to install N7000XXLPY ICS 4.0.3 (Root + CWM)?

Do not worry if you feel it's lagging initially. This is due to background acct sync. You will feel it getting smoother and smoother once the cache and dalvik build-up.

In case you wonder about the battery life....1st days of using it. Most of the time, after 2 or 3 battery cycle it would be better.

Some of you like to see the numbers as well.... this is mine..stock+root+cwm. No overclock or custom kernel.

If you think that your screen transition/animation too slow. Try this
Developer options. Force GPU and Transition to 0.5 or set no transition at all.

Good overnight battery usage
S-Note one of the premium software available, but don't really know how to use it :)

No problem purchase from Google Play.

Happy? Continue with ICS upgrade for Galaxy Note here
