I Brought My Note 3 (Golden Black) Recently Here In Kuwait And I Had To Get My Money Refunded After merely 2 Days The Problem That I Was Facing was the Overheating ON The Top of the Phone(Camera Area,Speaker Area) While Merely Browsing The Internet And Placing Viber Calls( And Trust me It gets so Hot That It is Difficult To hold It Against ears) They Even Replaced Once But The problem remains the same.. So Is This happening With everyone who is buying a new piece? I Really Wanted To Buy This Phone But This Problem Is Frightening Me ...
Bunyip22, 13 Nov 2014My black Snapdragon Note 4 arrived about 3 hours ago to replace my Note 3. :-) A few initia... moreSo you be reverting back to your note 3 then,to be honest sencible ppl who bought the note 3 were or must have been dissapointed in note 4.example (same screen size 5.7)(expected 5.9 or 6inch) at least, same (ram 3) camera improvent yeah but unless your david bailey camera is neither here or there, but if your happy then thats what its all about.remember tho note 5 comes out next year so ppl who paid out for this note 4 are gona be pretty peed of when the beast comes out in new year,ME well im just gona sit back and enjoy my note 3 for many years to come !

A few initial thoughts are:
1) Build quality and looks are first rate. The stitching on the back is gone, the metal is a dark grey apart from the silver bevels. The wobble in the home button is gone but the volume rocker has a slight wobble. It feels and looks thinner.
2) Gapgate isn't an issue. There is no difference compared from the Note 3 apart from the 2.5D glass "rolling" into the edge which may create the illusion of a gap. There is no way i can fit anything along the edge.
3) The screen is AWESOME. It is considerably whiter, brighter, has better viewing angles and is better in sunlight than the Note 3.
4) The QHD screen resolution increase is only noticeable on the smallest of webpage text and then only just.
5) The speaker has good volume but the quality isn't great. Not an issue as i use headphones.
6) Fingerprint scanner works well but can't be rushed.
7) The left key functions (settings and recent apps) have now been switched which is painful.
8) Most apps and menus are now white not black. It looks better but may use more battery. Menus are generally laid out better.
The improvements over the Note 3 aren't as big as the Note 3 vs the Note 2 but still a good upgrade.
I will do a more detailed review after a day or 2 of use.
Was , 13 Nov 2014Battery drains very quickly need to charge two to three times a day 3200mah worst battery I never had to charge mine 3 times a day. Ii shouldnt need charged 3 times in one day unless youve ruined your battery over charging it. Buy new battery.

Assure, 12 Nov 2014Did you guys had a stability update of 80 gb, it's fine to the teeth. Rest send feed back as... moreI recieved small update two weeks ago. Dont know what it was for. I thought it was maybe a small pre release for 4.4.4 update. The way samsung pushes updates out we would be lucky yo get 4.4.4 update. We are suppose to get it this month. But nothing so far.
Did you guys had a stability update of 80 gb, it's fine to the teeth. Rest send feed back as soon. Not updated to 4.4.4 quiet alarming. When is Lolipop5 expected.
Samsung Fan, 11 Nov 2014Will it include ART runtime support? Also will UI change or that will happen with Android ... moreI had to look this up. The ART runtime is something we've been able to dabble with for a little while now but from Android 'L' we'll be using it exclusively as it replaces Dalvik.Google is promising a 2x performance increase over Dalvik You can google it and read up on it. Yes. the UI will change when and if we get android L.

galdino ranger, 12 Nov 2014how long does your batteries go for and how do you check an original Note 3 from a clone plsSame with any phone,all depends how much you got running in back ground.kill idle apps and only run what you realy need.then everything should run smoothly !

hotlips, 11 Nov 2014I installed it. So il see how it goes. Thanx lakewolf:-)Did you get the right one hotlips.its got sky blue back ground and green n red arrow logo at the sides.its not a wiget so all you need to do is set it and just leave it running in back ground.and also set it (on) for if you need to restart your phone or switch it off. Try for tonight n tmz but if you set it right then not Bob but (Lakeys ya uncle) lol ;-)
hotlips, 11 Nov 2014Thanks lakewolf. Il go in to playstore now:-)I installed it. So il see how it goes. Thanx lakewolf:-)
hotlips, 11 Nov 2014To be safe take it to service centre! They get the tip out for you. Theres an app hotlips on playstore called (AUTO 3G)it switches your data off in idle mode.and activates it when you open your phone automaticly,ive been using it for just over 2yrs now and it will double your battery life in a day.just go into settings and set it as you feel fit.and set it so if you recieve a call data will not be switched on until you put the phone down.wish ppl in all forums look out for this instead of complaining about there battery back-up! cus constant data in idle mode is just a waste.anyways just a thought ;-)
hotlips, 10 Nov 2014We were suppose to get 4.4.4 on october. But now they said november . So we will see. Samsung ... moreWill it include ART runtime support?
Also will UI change or that will happen with Android L update?
