Samsung must work on the update .These phones cost so much so ordinary people cannot upgrade them easily.Android smartphones are having an amazingly high performance changes in a very short period when compared to pc's.The future apps and games will demand octacore chips.

Samsung puts a v8 in a VW making a speed buggy, then Samsung puts in a chip to only allow the VW to run on 4 cylinders. What a waste.

Just bought note 3 from tmobile on Oct 2. Learn all the features through youtube and love it. On Oct 5 at 8.30 am, just like usual I unplug the charger it was 100%, do all the my chores (not using the phone at all, didn't even touch it) at 11 am the phone beep a low battery warning. I was , WHAT THE HECK. I t said 15% and to charge the phone! It was hot! So i check if there is any apps running on background, NO! Clear the ram and deafault then plug the charger. By 1 pm it's full, so I unplugged it, put it in my bag went to office, (not touching the phone at all) at 2 pm when i'm about to use it, it's hot and 85%! Totally not right, so I powered off, took off the battery letit cool, then plug it back, not hot aftert that. So not happy spending $760 for product that guves problem only after 2 day!

Its like getting the fastest engine available for your car but your are unable to use the full potential because it will set your car on fire :)
