Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - user opinions and reviews

Samsung

Sort by:

I have the exynos version of this phone.The phone is good but the occasional lags and stutters really spoiles the experience. The camera app really sucks or i would say the worst camera app. It takes about 2-3 seconds to respond after clicking the camera icon and takes 3-4 seconds to respond after clicking recording button. The camera is worst part of this phone. The UI is not stable. My friend's moto g is way more stable than my note 3.It takes more time to load subway surfers on my note 3 than on my friend's moto g which is really a shame.I bought this phone because i read lots of positive reviews on internet but the reality is totally different. Being a flagship device it doesn't provide flagship like phone experience.I am never gonna buy Samsung's phone again

Latest known bug in Lollipop is Memory Leak. Wait till Samsung itself is satisfied as it is still on testing stage. New TouchWiz will be good but there is no option apart from waiting.

> In reply to sam58 @ 2014-12-31 15:03 from rK}2 - click to readWell myself have no intententions of updaiting to lollopop my freind because of all the bugs that need ironing out.i read on flipboard it could be around febuary time.but its the white theme ppl dont like and until you actualy update your firmware ya self you wont know how your phone is going to perform.but remember if you do update then theres a very good chance half your apps.widgets. will not work,so theres no turning back.my advice is if your phone is telling you theres an update then egnore it until you see reviews in here first on how ppl think there phone is performing with this new lollipop.to me it seems more trouble than its worth. Happy new year ;-)

Do you think i shud do a factory reset on it again? All tho i cant be annoyed doing it at the min lol. But il go thru all the apps that was updated and delete wat apps i can that was updated. See how it gos. Hope everything is ok with my note 3 lakewolf. Cos im a very unlucky person wen it comes to phones lol :-) happy new year lakewolf. Hope 2015 is a great one. :-)
