I just go in to playstore every week and just update the important apps which so far are good. But i just leave the rest. Even tho the ones i have are older version they work fine on note 3 Anonymous.

Then when dev in playstore updates them they dont work like the older version. Quic pic was one and i dont use it now. The older version was better. Ive note 1 still as backup phone on jb and facebook works great on it. So i only update important apps like cm security and du speed booster. And im using older backup and restore as the new one i cant save to sd card. I understand they have to update apps. But sometimes it makes them worse i find. Anonymous.

A lot of older phones can still handle Facebook and new updates. So I imagine that the Note 3 will still be able to handle such a popular app, among others, in 2 years. Personally, I don't allow automatic updates because most updates are minor or sometimes they ruin the apps. The reviews on Google Play are filled with people complaining about new updates and that they can barely use Gmail, Youtube, or whatever. Even if you do experience a problem, just stick with a version of the app that works well. Newer doesn't necessarily mean better.

my friend. .....go for note 3 ...it is not more important that upgrades are available or not,finally phone performance matters and ur satisfaction. Note 3 works well n good at a given update....literally I am telling u my bro I am fully satisfied with my phone battery performance camera everything was good .......only the drawback update is not available but that doesn't matters for me.No other cmpny will give u the battery of 3200 mAh in that range if u r already a android user then i dont need to tell u the imp of battery performance.......dont compare htc with note series man ......note series are the business class phones.

Old... moreI think most people define "old" as in not having the latest OS update and/or looking old. Honestly, I could care less about the new update. My phone works perfectly fine the way it is. Appearance-wise, the Note 3 looks nearly identical to the Note 4 which is only a year old. Put a case on it and most people can't tell the difference. Heck, even my brother first thought I had a Note 4 and he's a Note 4 owner lol. Maybe in 2-3 years it'll start to show its age (like how the Note 1 and Note 2 appear to us now). But for now, it looks quite modern to me.
My advise to people: Just keep what works well for you and not worry about having the latest update. Nobody will care if you have jellybean, kitkat, lollipop, or marshmallow. Your personal experience matters the most.
hello all, please i need your advise as i'm terribly confused between buying note 3 4g and HTC 9+ :( , please be noted that i am a heavy user, ill be using it in every little thing all the time also some friends advised me that note 3 became a bit old than other phones, and it will not stand the updates of applications like face book , viber ...etc in the next couple of years !!! as i need a phone that to stay a long time with me with out thinking of changing it again.
please help me with your feed backs .
