So the Note is a lot of things: big, bold, unique. Before I got mine I did extensive research watching/reading at least 25 reviews before finally taking the plunge. Now that I've had it a while I've found it has constantly surprised me even though I thought I knew it before I bought it. My biggest shock is how efficient the battery is. My Evo 4G would die faster than a fish out of water. And the iPhone 4S battery isn't nearly as 'amazing' as Apple wants you to think. But the Note's battery has been solid no matter what options I have on or what I'm doing. Has anything about the Note surprised you?
