She's a big beast, but you fairly quickly get used to it and going back to an iPhone seems tiny. The screen is gorgeous, it's lightning fast, and overall I'm very impressed. I was worried about subpar music performance, but I got poweramp and double twist to sync music from my mac to the phone and it works great and sounds great with my klipsch x10s. The widgets are great (as a new android convert) and I think I'll be keeping it for the next 12 months until I get a look at the iPhone 5. I had an iPhone for 3 years, and still have a 4, but have grown pretty bored of rows and rows of icons.

I thought about the nexus, but there's no microSD slot and 16gb isn't enough for me. And anyway, the note will get the ICS update in a few months time. As for the s-pen, I don't think I'll use it a huge amount, but it's pretty nifty for taking and editing screenshots.

All in all, very happy. I'll be even happier when I can get the native email app to push!!

I finally fixed the issue - it was a combination of different settings, not the same as the iPhone:

 

Email address: email@gmail.com
Password: My Gmail password
Domain/User Name: google\email@gmail.com
Exchange server: m.google.com

 

Loving the Note, big but with a lot to offer. Still on o2, not looking forward to porting my number over shortly after reading some of the horror stories!

Thanks very much for this. I've now been able to configure a business gmail account (which doesn't end in "@gmail.com") on my Galaxy Note.
