The new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware N7000XXLT5 brings with more stable, smoother and faster build for the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000. After from few days of evaluation, installed some twenty apps, surprisingly it seems like it’s fixes and corrected some amount of RAM usage when it comes on running heavy applications in the system background, yet compared to earlier releases including Germany 4.1.2 N7000XXLT4 and the previous released N700XXLSZ. So far the battery has been the same, we never found out any bugs.
This is the best firmware we got so far and good for everyday use.
