One of the coolest and useful feature of Note 5, taking notes while screen is black (or just after taking the S Pen out) is ported for Note 3, in case anyone is interested,
It is not perfect but I am sure the dev will update the app in future.
Anyway, after seeing the Note 5, I am really sad. No, not because it lacks an SD card slot, because it is made of damn glass. Seriously, Samsung of all people ending up with glass design is beyond me! It is the most impractical material for a mobile phone on this universe and beyond. Within a very minimum usage of a month or so that glass will get scratched, and look like pure sh!te.
Then there is the factor of batter capacity! Really? Endurance lower than Note 4? Jeez!
Camera too, isn't that much improved from Note 4 anyway!
Only size is more compact, and that's it! I don't see a valid of getting the Note 5 over a Note 4, the only problem is I can't seem to find a good deal for Note 4, and yet Note 5 is already selling at a more or less decent price here! Weird! If pricing of Note 4 comes down a bit in next couple of months I am sure going to grab it, unless I see that Sony Z series Ultra coming back in news again..............
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2015is this phone a worthy one even now at 2015 end ??!!??!This is not 2015's end, and it depends on how much you are paying for it. For me, if it sells for around 300-325 USD, I will say this phone is more than good. For prices above than that Note 4 it is.
PS: Oh dear lord! I just made my 1000th comment! What is that 87 number below that is beyond me though!

I will die before even touching another LG. They should stop making mobile phones, and that's the end of story.

Note 3's advantage over Z3: Everything else.
AnonD-382857, 09 Sep 2015Hii Blondi can u tell me note 3 battery life after lollipop . .please give me a suggestion i w... moreGet the Note 4. The price is already pretty low, and at that price it's a great phone to have.
Sue, 10 Sep 2015hey just bought my Note 3 and I like it but I am disappointed with the camera. low light photo... moreWhy did you think that Note 3 would take good quality low light photos? This phone performs pretty averagely in low light conditions. The most important things in low light needed are, OIS, a bigger sensor and a fater AF system. Note 3 doesn't have any of those! So blurry photos are quite normal. Still turn off the Smart Stabilise feature if you haven't already, in most ocassions it makes the photos look like oil paintings, but it does come in handy where you need to capture overall scene but any details in really low light.
If you needed a better low light capable camera you should have gone for Note 4.
Mridul, 10 Sep 2015Is note 3 lags while playing hd games ??? Plz reply Depends on the games you are running.
Abhi D, 12 Sep 2015Two sites are reporting that 5.1.1 has been pushed out to Note 3 by US Cellular And it inclu... moreNah, fake news I suppose. There is nothing on Sammobile, or XDA or here in GSMA. That news was posted almost 48 hours ago, if it were true then it would be there on popular websites already. I don't think that news has any validity to it.

Abhi D, 12 Sep 2015Yes, the link isn't showing up. What's in the link btw ?
Copy and paste the text in here if y... moreI woulnt say majority lollipop dosnt run well. I would say a few. Ive read lots of ppl think 5.0 is good. But model n900 have problems with it. But it might not be the update. It could be a rougue app or software isue etc abhi. Like i said before kk was really bad when it first came out. It was a nightmare. Apps not working etc. The list goes on. And 5.0 has been smoothed out. Its a shame some ppl are having trouble with it as it nice layout and smoother than kk. Im totally surprised with 5.0. I was dreading it. But so far it been great abhi:)
Abhi D, 12 Sep 2015Latest 5.1.1 updates for Note 3 or in General ?Note 3 not getting 5.1.1 update yet. The website shows
what phone is getting what updates. That was what the link was to show you abhi:)

[deleted post]Yes, the link isn't showing up. What's in the link btw ?
Copy and paste the text in here if you can.
Your update is running nice but for majority of users lollipop has created serious issues. So 5.1.1 will be a big relief for them.
And just read that even Verizon pushed out 5.1.1 for Note 3 two days ago. Why is no one covering this news ?
I think tech sites don't consider Note 3 worth anymore

Samsung bring out these hogh priced phones every year which i didnt mind because of sd support. But now they have done away with it in note 5 so that anyone who wants more memory in the phone will have to pay good bit extra money for it. Were as if they had have put sd slot in it then no one would complain. No wonder samsung is losing sales. I always like samsung. I was looking forward to buying note 5. So il stay with note 3 for a couple months and see what other phone i would like Anonymous:)
