I can use S-pen to write anything but when i try to use S-pen to write something in text recognision mode i get an error "Direct pen input has stopped working". I did a factory reset . In fact i do twice this thing. I do because i believed that was some kind a virus , because whenever I triedto syncronize google account from settings i got error: "Settings has stopped". Now i stiil have problems when i try to syncronize the google account from settings plus with S-pen. Now, is not a big problems but i wish to solve both of them....Thanks for help
Danish, 19 Jun 2016Is Marshmallow releasing for Note 3 ???NO NO and NO,never will,its stucknon the dreaded lollipop I'm afraid,remember if its not broken then don't break it,hopefully there's still ppl out there on kitkat with this ageing flagship,my advice is stay on it and enjoy a problematic free phone ;-)
Note 3 my last phone i think. Don't find any phone can compete this. Especially screen, performance and features. I'm still using Kitkat os. Zero problem.
Note is a powerful phone,its performance is superb unlike the s5 I was using.i suggest even if note 3 is not getting 6.0, al least it should have 5.1.1 update like the Neo
note 3 should not be left out just like that
Samsung should about us not only dropping new handsets nd 4gettin the old ones
note 3 i think is capable of running 6.0 i think note 3 should have got at least 5.1.1. neo got it and it has lest specs. it just because it came out a year later according to samsung. but note 3 i have 2yrs and 4 months. so i dont think its old in terms of performance and running 5.0 on my model n9005 is smooth and no problems. im happy with that. my fav note.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2016Wait for marshmallow
Email from samsung. They said they cant confirm which phones will receive 6.0. Like i said they are testing it on diff models. But who told you your model is getting it
My 2 Cents, 18 Jun 2016At least this a business for Samsung thats because they launch every year a new one and they f... morei agree. personally think note 3 should get 6.0. its got the specs like i said. its still a good flagship phone 2 yrs on. we pay lots for these smartphone or should i say phablets which i dont mind as note series to me are the best to come out from samsung.
to that person! i and any other users dont have sleepless nights worrying about updates. every comment you post says the same as last commment! lol! and YES updates are important. its part of using a smartphone. note 3 is not old if its looked after. if it performing well. yes if it stays on 5.0 with no problems thats good. its not written in stone that having a phone for 2 yrs is old! wach person has thier own opinin about thier phone. so stop repeating it! many users and me including admit its a pleasure to own note 3! personally for me its my fav note! so no i deff dont have problems or sleepless nights over my note 3!
My 2 Cents, 18 Jun 2016At least this a business for Samsung thats because they launch every year a new one and they f... moreexactly friend. samsung, sony etc its all about marketing. sony always gets updates on time which is good as updates are important. but we as customers of samsung we need updates. wether note 3 will get marshmallow as accordding to samsung it does have the specs to run marshmallow. but they dont give out much info. but they say they are testing it on older flagship models time will tell. but it would be good for some users on n900.
My 2 Cents, 18 Jun 2016ww3.mobipicker.com/is-the-galaxy-s4-and-galaxy-note-3-marshmallow-update-coming/ Sorry but ... moreyeah. but i think it should get 5.1.1 at least as neo did. i know my model isnt getting it. but dont know about n900. but im happy as note 3 i have no problems with on 5.0 running smooth. not everyone buys a phone every two years. note 5 was a big dispointment for me. i was going to buy it. but sd is a must for me. but my note edge will be getting marshmallow. i use that for work. my trusted note 3 for personal use. this note will go on for a long time if looked after. its still performing well for me my friend.
note 3 is not old. thats just your opinion that you keep saying. it will still last a good while! theres a saying. old is gold
Nikhil Kawatra, 17 Jun 2016What is your source?. hi Niknil. good to see you on forum. as far as i know my model note 3 wont be getting marshmallow. but its going good on 5.0. note esge is getting it. but still happy with note 3. still my fav note:)
At least this a business for Samsung thats because they launch every year a new one and they forget about older models, no matter if they are capable of running the new OS, is just pure marketing.
My 2 Cents, 18 Jun 2016ww3.mobipicker.com/is-the-galaxy-s4-and-galaxy-note-3-marshmallow-update-coming/ Sorry but ... moreCorrect my friend,but certain ppl in here have been addament they will get it,its too old now and as the the saying goes don't break it if its not broken,but will they listen,NO,they just have sleepless nights worrying about updates,sad realy because its just a phone end of day,but there you go !
Sorry but theres a reason why we will never see these two devices getting any major Android update anymore. Major updates like Android 6.0 Marshmallow demand better hardware, better CPU, more RAM, etc. While the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 are powerful, they are just not capable enough of running Marshmallow.
At least thats what Samsung believes.
And anyway, the devices have long crossed their 2-year mark, which is the industry standard for receiving new updates.
The only way Note 3 can get Android 6.0 is CyanogenMod or any other custom ROM, but there will be no official update for the Note 3.
