    Nice SRP, compared to US$799 (lowest on US) but I hate to place a pre-order for this (1st batch) and something go wrong with it, again!

    Still we’ve not forgotten infamous issues related to their first batch of Galaxy Tab Greenbelt-5 launch), however it didn’t happen to my unit!

    But again, its SRP is a bit tempting and for sure I’ll keep an eye on this page for future update/s.


  2. redmd says:

    I’m getting one. That’s for sure. Yuga,will this one comes with freebies like that leather pouch in S2?

  3. Mindanaoan says:

    Another discount for Metro Manila ONLY?

  4. Abigail says:

    Im waiting for this! Contemplating. :P. Yuga, is the discount THAT significant?:)

  5. H says:

    hmp! 1st 300 units. manila na naman.

    • Mindanaoan says:

      was once a patron of samsumg since the omnia days, but not anymore since they started this selective and biased treatment to its consumers. So lately, I got the optimus instead of s2 and the xoom over tab. Samsung, you lost a loyal customer because of your lousy marketing people in PH market :p

  6. Bugloy says:

    tempting, kaya lang wait mode ako sa asus transformer prime isa lang kaya ng budget ko…na sana may pre order w/ freebies din kahit free dock nalang gaya noong sa asus transformer 1

  7. Gadget Naive says:

  8. poobear says:

  9. KraMismyName says:

    Sir yuga i cant visit the link it says The page you requested is not available.

  10. pabs says:

    Good product!!! If you have the money , buy it. But if you don’t have and you don’t need it anyway, the simple and cheap phones is still the best, People are like, they spend the money they don’t have on a product they don’t need to impress people they don’t like, he he he.

  11. H says:

    wait a minute! free at plan 2000?! eh ang N9 free din sa plan 2000. dito na ko.

  12. yaj says:

    any news when will galaxy tab plus 7.0 will arrive in PH… thanks

  13. PNOY says:

    Di na natuto ang mga pinoy sa marketing strategy ng mga company sa Pilipinas. Sa umpisa lang yan mahal. Pero after 1 or 2 months bagsak presyo na yan, wait niyo pagdumating na ung latest Samsung Galaxy Nexus at Galaxy S II skyrocket, baba na ung price ng Note as low as 19,990 parang Nokia N9, sa ngaun 24,990 next 2 months 17,000 nlng.

  14. croizanne says:

  16. Ben says:

  17. Alex says:

      “…special package that can be availed through an exclusive online offer on November15,2011”

  18. edx says:

    • ergoprox says:

      Sir, ang samsung concept store po ba ay official retail store po ng samsung like sa samsung mobile sa megamall? or is it like a small stall sa ali mall? at may alam po ba kayo bakit masmura siya sa SRP na pinost ni sir yuga sa taas? thanks po in advance

    • Name: says:

      Are the boxes still sealed sa Ali mall? Saan sa Ali mall?

  19. soldats says:

    gud day sir yuga, can u also spare some of ur time and offer your thoughts on Samsung Galaxy W (i8150). it is already selling in some cp stores. thanks!

  20. aldrin says:

  21. Max says:

    paano po magpre-order sa smart(2k plan) do I need to go to smart wireless canter on November 15(or kahit lumampas sa november 19 pwede pa din?) to do this or pwede din sa na site?

  22. technokyle says:

    What’s the advantage of this one over iPad2

    • ice says:

      You can still put this inside your pocket, you will not look dumb when you answwer your phone:) and it can be held at your palm. This is a hybrid.

  23. akosicarl says:

    paano naman kaya yung after market service nito? puwede kaya sa kahit anong samsung store? saka, saan gagawin yung release nung units? puwede bang cash? hahahaha

  24. javalite says:

    Hi sir Abe! I don’t know if I missed reading about it in the blog above, but what’ll be the available internal storage mem for the first 300 units? Also, do you know if a white variant will be released along side the midnight blue version this Saturday?

  25. Max says:

    May i know how can i pre-order this using smart postpaid plan 2k?

  26. It is one of the most noticeable mobile phone this days.

  27. Alex says:

    I’m just wondering what Samsung people are smoking over there!?

    See what I was shown at their pre-order page, just few minutes ago!?

    ” You came to reserve a Galaxy Note? You came to early, please come back on November 11, 2011, 12:01 AM, Thanks you”

  28. Alex says:

    Reserved one!

    “The 600 units of Galaxy Note for this promo is part of the first 650 units shipment to the Philippines for this mode”

  29. Edwin says:

    Reservation Confirmed! Yahoo :)

  30. Josh says:

    Number 16 here confirmed 12:45am w00t hurry us so I can play with my new toy hehe

  31. Josh says:

    Number 16 here confirmed 12:45am w00t! hurry up so I can play with my new toy hehe

  32. Nigel says:

    If i reserve and NOT go at the venue, would my reservation be viable at any Smart Wireless? Or just specifically on that event?

  33. Promdi says:

    “Units may only be released to the CONFIRMED customers present during the SELLING EVENT.”

    “The SELLING EVENT will be on November 19, 2011 between 10AM and 8PM at the The Podium, Mandaluyong City.”

    Another regional discrimination of Samsung Philippines!

  34. Nigel says:

    Reserved and printed out the copy! ha! Have I done the right thing? =|

    • Alex says:

      Yes, that’s the way to go! Open-line pre-orders can be claimed by a print-out of your confirmation (where you can see your reservation code) plus a valid ID, same thing when I got my Galaxy Tab few months ago.

  35. Nigel says:

    Please, fix the comment sections. Was posting twice and still deferred. “Anti-spam defense”?

    Anyway, got my reservations and asked myself after, Did i just do the right thing? and Yes Promdi, Regional discrimination sucks. Poor us! =(

  36. JMagnaye says:

    I tried to reserve at 1205AM. I got to the page where it is asking you to check the confirmation email. Until now I still haven’t received the email.Dahil kaya sa Gmail ang ginamit ko?

    Bad trip. sayang puyat ko.

    • Alex says:

      I also reserved very early (12:01) and I did use a Gmail address and got it instantly, it didn’t even go to my “Spam” folder, it was right in the “Inbox”. you may want to try it again or use another email or double check your email as you type it ;-)

  37. GmailerDin says:

    Gmail din ginamit ko na email but I recieved the email right after I submitted the form. Kindly see to it na tama inilagay mo na email address (ex. [email protected]).

  38. bestee says:

    i first tried to reserve 1201AM using hotmail, no email confirmation arrived. did another one using gmail, none as well. reported to samsung. slept. a few minutes ago I tried again using work email — success! #65 open line

  39. CoolSGN says:

    I’m #66 Woohoo!!! getting this great device. This for me is “THE ONE” mobile device for my needs. =)No need bringing note pads during meetings haha. Cheers

  40. JMagnaye says:

    tried gmail, my email and my work email, still no confirmation letter. ayaw yata talaga sa akin.

    • Alex says:

      Still can’t you get in!? Weird!
      It may sound more funny if I offer you to do the reservation on your behalf and email you its screenshot (confirmation-email/reservation-code) so you can print it out, but still it’s a doable process if you are still planing to get this bad-boy but having difficulties with the email thingy. In that case, just let me know ;-)

  41. RJ says:

    I still haven’t received the confirmation email…

  42. JMagnaye says:

    Finally got my confirmation email around 12NN. But this was for the reservation wherein I used my pldt email address. No replies from my gmail ones.

    buti na lang inulit ko

  43. Sad says:

    oh nooo, im too late for the reservation :(( is there any chance that they would open the reservation again? or do I have to wait until the note is openly sold for the public?

  44. enes says:

    Reservation is off. Too late for me. So what I want to ask is this Smartphone is for Smart only, not open-line?

  45. Alex says:

    So it seems promo has ended in less than 24-hours, quite faster than Galaxy Tab which they didn’t receive this much interest and barely half of their 300 units were reserved.

    • Max says:

      why would they end it early? is the 300 units sold out already?

    • Max says:

      Q> is the 33,990 0% interest for 6 mos just like 10.1 inch galaxy tab?

    • Alex says:

      It appears that turnout for Galaxy Note pre-order (650 units) has been much higher compared to what we saw for Galaxy Tab (~300 units), I do remember that Galaxy Tab pre-order page was up and running till 72-hours after its launch!

      Regarding the credit card scheme, I hope it’s the same and I/we can purchase it for 6-months, zero-interest term while still availing that sweet 2,000 Php discount and receiving other freebies!

    • Max says:

      I think the pre-order of 10.1 inch galaxy has 700 units. If the note pre-order page ends 24 hrs does this mean 600 units sold(I think not with its price point)? Its impossible and what will samsung do with the remaining units if they’re not sold out.

    • Alex says:

      Maybe after they reached to 300 for “Note” they stopped the offer and kept the other 300 units for replacement and warranty claims based on their “Tab” launch experience!! JK!

      Also, offered price is high but not that high compared to other Internationale markets.

      In other note, many who were waiting for Galaxy Nexus and didn’t get any concrete news regarding its Phil release date have also joined to “Note” club, including myself!

  46. Eric says:

    Is this for the 16GB or 32GB?

    • Alex says:

      Like many other promos at their 1st launch, they’ll go with the lowest internal storage capacity which of course has a lower SRP to make that deal somewhat more attractive!

  47. Josh says:

    Anyone been contacted by Smart yet? Just curious as to the redemption detail. -Thanks.

  48. eug says:

    i reserved a unit but now changed my mind…anyone wants my unit? reply nalang

  49. eug says:

    promo price in samsung PR is 34990 less 2k, but some sites including this one list it at 35990 less 2k….whats the deal talaga?

    • Alex says:

      P2,000 off of its suggested retail price of P35,990 witha free flipcover valued at P1,450 and a free 45-day subscription of Philippine Daily Inquirer Digital Edition valued at P1,120

      Per DTI-NCR Permit Number 8373 Series of 2011

  50. Josh says:

    Just got the confirmation call from Samsung (or a marketing firm?) Anyhow shame on them for completely failing to have any information ready for people availing of the Smart plan option. When asked what was needed I was told bring ID and cash / card. When pressed for details of what was needed to get a unit via Smart contract I was told to bring 2 forms of valid picture ID and 2K cash or card. I find this unbelievable… I would advise bringing a utility bill and prof of income as well. If anyone had and solid info here please advise. Thanks.

  51. dan says:

    i’m have a confirmed reservation via smart plan. why would they tell you to bring 2k in cash/card when their promo says that the first month service is free? does that mean that they’ll require to pay the 2nd month service in advance? lol

    • Josh says:

      I don’t know, think the first lady from Samsung was a bit confused… I later recived a call from Smart confirming the reservation as well. While I didn’t ask if payment was necisary… I was told to bring the following from Smart:

      -Original utility bill in my name
      -Proof of income (they have a list, however pay stubs are acceptable)
      -Photo ID

      I asked if photo copies were needed of anything and was told no. I’m bringing copies just in case.

  52. bbb says:

    promo extended. comes back up in a few hours.

  53. mike says:

    I was also called by Samsung and Smart. The only issue I am having is that I still did not receive any confirmation email… I was told by the Samsung representative to still wait for the email but when I talked to the Smart rep she told me that receiving the call already means that my reservation was confirmed. I will call Samsung support tomorrow morning to sort this out since I need the printed copy of the confirmation email as a proof of reservation for the Nov. 19 event.

    • mike says:

      UPDATE: I tried to register again this morning using a different email and finally got the confirmation email and successfully got a reservation using the confirmation link. :D

  54. noli says:

    Also got a confirmation call from Smart/Samsung. However I said I could not make it to The Podium on Nov 19, the caller said that I could claim my Note on Nov 26, at the Smart Wireless Center here in SM Bacolod. So there is hope for ‘promdis’. Hoping this would come true.

  55. dude says:

    I missed both calls from smart and Samsung. Is the phone call needed? Bad reception where I work and they call during work hours. Can anyone tell me what the phone call is for?

    • Alex says:

      They just want to make sure that you are still planing/willing to avail of the device!

      Btw, as of now, I’ve not received/missed any call from Samsung reps. regarding double-confirmation of my reservation!

    • dude says:

      Thanks Alex. Wasn’t sure if I was missing out on something important.

  56. Sad says:

    I got the confirmation email but when I tried accessing the link, it always return a “Page not found”, is there a problem with their site???

    • Yano says:

      Same thing happened to me. I called the customer service: 1-800-8-7267864 , and they said they would get back to me within the day.

  57. Xand says:

    Sana maganda ang customer service ng smart bukas. Hindi yung matagal na ang approval process tapos di pa marerelease yung phone.

  58. saber210 says:

    Tanong lang.. asan yung link nung 2k SMART PLAN?

    Gusto ko sana mag avail eh.

  59. Joe says:

    Will they offer the smart thing again? I was in podium yesterday and saw already the Note. i didn’t know about smart’s offer. If I did, I would’ve gotten one.. Will they offer it again?

    • Max says:

      I was told by the lady at smart counter that after the Nov 19 sale date, smart will offer samsung galaxy note for free @plan 3000.

  60. Joe says:

    @Max That’s alright.. I’ll go for the unlimited plan 2000 if they offer a small cash out of something like less than 5k.

  61. Esbee says:

    Sa mga nakakuha ng Smart unlimited data plan 2000, activated na ba yung sim ninyo?

  62. Esbee says:

    Sa wakas sim activated din. Yun nga lang kailangan pa talaga puntahan sa SM Megamall

  63. Max says:

    May i know saan store makakabili ng screen protector for the note? and what kind? clear? matte(anti-fingerprint)? nde kc available sa zagg at capdase..

    • Yano Escueta says:

      I actually looked for one in Megamall, and wala pa daw protector for Galaxy Note. If any of you find one, please post here for us. Thanks!

  64. Alex says:

    Try, here is a link to some of them

  65. Max says:

    mukhang walang defect ang mga 1st batch ng galaxy note.. no complains so far. wala po ba screen protector sa mga malls? I need yun mamahalin like zagg or capdase will do.

    • CoolSgn says:

      tama yun sa mga reviews. browsing eats battery life. really need to shut down some settings after browsing such as sync, etc. but no qualms here. luv my Note :-)

    • dave says:

      might just be nitpicking here but i do notice uneven / dark streaks when the note displays white background, say during browsing when pages are loading…if you look closely u can see the uneveness of the screen….anyone noticed that on their note?

    • Happy says:

      ive also notice na ung average ram usage ng note is around 500 mb which is very high considering na ang ram nito is 800 mb(correct me if im wrong on this one) lang… I’m always using the task manager to clear the memory, sana maaus to paglabas nila ng ICS, other than that I am also loving my note!!! :D

    might just be nitpicking here but i do notice uneven / dark streaks when the note is displaying a white background…say during surfing when pages are loading, if you look closely you can see the uneveness of the screen with some dark streaks…anyone notice this on their note?

  67. Max says:

    ask ko lang regarding sa data unlimited ng smart(2k/mos.) bawal ba tethering, push mail, watch youtube at opera mini browser? may additional charge ba? ang sinabi lang kc sken wag gumamit ng ibang browser yun lang. yun iba nabasa ko lng sa mga forum ng mga hidden charges ng smart regarding sa data unlimited. Please confirm sa matagal na nakaunlidata plan ng smart thank you. Ayaw ko kc magulat ako sa bill ko.

    • Max says:

      dagdag ko lng pati fb,twitter and other social networking sites my additional charge din and 1.5gb cap bandwith/mos. Knowing this limitation i wouldn’t apply for this plan. its a waste. 1st time smart subscriber here.. please confirm thank you.

    • Josh says:

      I’ve already pulled over 20GB (conservatively) and there are no additonal charges on my account. You don’t need to worry. I do have a ~300PHP running balance though not sure what that is from, but certainly would not be a charge from a 18.5GB overage….

    • cris says:

      need help here.. san pong mga smart stores dito around metro manila pwede mka avail ng Gnote at 2k plan ng smart?? help pls..

  68. Yano says:

    RE: Battery Life

    I’ve been using my Note for around 3 weeks, and I’ve noticed that my battery life only lasts a whole day (around 20 hours). A 4S user then suggested that I choose “GSM only” on my Network Mode, and ever since then my battery lasts me more than one day before I have to re-charge. Hope this helps.

  69. Mr.Lee says:

    Well i got this one already and its good well if u have some problem with the battery try to buy battery storage so u can bring it and u can directly charge it when its needed
