power saving off. auto adjust brightness off too. at lowest brihhtness setting when it happened.
Eh, I don't think lowest brightness is a good idea. And no, I not talking about power saving. You go display you will see an option "auto adjust screen power" that is not associated with the separate power savings menu.

those looking for faster way to adjust brightness quickly manually can use'brightness rocker'.

shows brightness control on volume buttons and on notification board.

but Note's brightness is very strong anyway so low settings may not be a bad idea to save power. Usually for my phones, i set it to 8 to 12% but for Note my level is at a scary 2%.

Stock rom and 1-2% is unbelievable. . Everything off?
Switching off sync and all wireless data connections (WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth) generally gives incredible battery life. I had a HD2 that lasted for 15 hours with the battery life going from 100% to 85% that way. And you all know how crappy the HD2 battery life normally is...

Dun think you can get Note cheaply now. No stock everywhere. Demand way exceed supply. Abt $885.

Help. My galaxy note can change to chinese language, but cannot input chinese character.

Does you guys have this option to input chinese language?
install an Chinese IME.., such as baidu

using wifi connection all day at home but 3g on the go.
i on sync manually when i use the apps. so far battery life is still ok as the battery haven bedded in.

btw guys how do u usually backup the phone?
is it backup in microsd then keep the file on comp?

I rather charge my battery twice then to switch off the things that makes my phone smart.
