The update is being rolled out in quite a few regions of the world including India. The new firmware updateis not being rolled out via OTA. Instead, users need to use Samsung’s KIES software to update their Note to Android 2.3.6.

The Android 2.3.6 update for the Note does not bring any major changes, but does fix a number of bugs including the random reboots and lags in certain areas of the phone. Quite a few Note owners have also reported an improvement in the overall performance, stability and battery life of the handset.

Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be updating the Galaxy Note to Ice Cream Sandwich. Galaxy Note owners should get the Ice Cream Sandwich update soon after the company releases the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II.

    I’m not a fan of Samsung. I bought Samsung products in the past; 15 years ago. I doubt if anything has change at Corporate. That includes: all phases of the manufaction/production process. There is a problem with overall quality and defects; i.e. breakdowns.

    I just upgraded OTA no problem. As you said, no real obvious difference at this stage. Watching for battery improvement over next couple off days.
