Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

for me, the 3 major weaknesses (leaving aside the o/s and focusing solely on day to day usage) are:

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

in the interests of fairness I must admit that an OTA upgrade at the weekend to 2.3.6 fixed the stock player. Somewhat quicker than N900 which IIRC didn't fix replay order until PR1.2.
