Note 3 is far from being a brake! Noway! Still a good flagship phone! And will last a good while!

I have noticed that my Note 3 has a weaker network reception than most phones. The phone keeps losing network in places where other phones have network. No network bars while other phones have three of all four network bars. What is the problem? is there a way to improve the phone network reception?

Bro7, 01 May 2016Note 3 or Lg G3?? I would say note 3. But I can't comment on LG g3 as I don't own it. But my son has had LG phones and now owns Sony phones. and I personally think Samsung are better than LG in my opinion. But just compare the two and then decide. Hope this helps.
popp, 02 May 2016Is there any information about update to 5.1.1 or 6.0?do not root your note 3 and update to 6.0.1. 6.0 are having problems. So Plz be careful and think about it first. You can brick your phone. Read up on it first. Don't just take one person's word on it. Because at the end of the day it's your phone my friend.
Specs are important in a smartphone for ppl who work like myself and thousands of other ppl students etc. comes in handy for my kind of work. I would rather move with the times instead of being stuck in the past. I do more on my note 3 and note edge than text, Internet, calls etc etc etc. Etc. And no matter how much you go on about kk the more boring it gets. Just had a kit kat with cupa lol. Luv a good laugh reading useless comments from kk person. This is note 3 forum. If that person hate's Samsung so much then move to the forum with your phone on it!
