Well, that's something you should fight for. Does it cover cracked screen? Or probably you're just trolling us here. I know people who used their insurance to have things fixed without questions.
I'm sure your 1520 is working out fine. With the Note 3 being more pocket-fitting than a 1520, and more productive with the S Pen for drawings for my designing needs, I'd rather keep my Note 3. In the 9 months I've been using it, it never restarted by itself.
I'm fine with the way Windows work, and I've seen how fluid it is for its W-Phone OS. I have a full Windows 8.1 working well for my Alienware laptop, and I've recently been using the 8.1 RT version with a Microsoft Surface 2. Wonderful experience with the Surface 2 - thin, light, full keyboard cover, FULL Office, 200GB of OneDrive for 2 years, kickstand, magnesium alloy body, and outstanding battery life.
It would be nice to complete the set with a Windows Phone, but even with the 1520 being offered at only $250 some weeks back at a local store. I just couldn't justify buying it knowing that the Note 3 is very good, and nothing that the 1520 features are compelling enough.
Bottom line is, you even bought a Note 3 (or you didn't actually). And you were sourgraping in your last post (wow, you didn't know that the Lumia 1520 was also plastic build?). Sorry, I've been using the Note 3 for 9 months now, and I'm pretty sure it's the best and most versatile device in its class to date.

3 days back I bought Note 3 9005 (hong kong version) it is working fantastic except one issue
If I turn Wifi off or data connection off and after few hours if I try to put it on or if I am out of range and after that whenever I get network signal back, I am unable to connect to WIFI or mobile data
I need to restart my handset and then it works fine. This is happening 2-3 times a day.
Please could you help with your expert opinion?

AnonD-121248, 14 Aug 201420nm my friend. That does make a huge difference.Ok thanks. Was starting to think Samsung had cheated us with the Octa-core Note 3 not having 2160p

But, Samsung refused to change the cracked screen, saying that I don't register it on purchase, even though I paid for the insurance already, that's gimmick.
You said your Samsung doesn't get hot, freeze and restart. Everyone here knows that Samsung phones get hot, freeze and restart. That's why Samsung can never make a non-removable battery phone, cos when it freezes you guys have to remove your battery. Lumia does not freeze.
A lot is expected from a high-end phone like note 3, quite frankly it is only good for gaming and watching videos.
My Lumia 1520 came pre-installed with all my office apps, I don't even need a third party, I can a lot more with my Lumia. It is way faster in browsing web pages and getting all my office work done with great ease. Lumia 1520 never gets hot, freeze or restart.
It so fluid to use.
AnonD-273641, 13 Aug 2014Does anyone wonder why the N9000 doesn't support 2160p video recording but the new Galaxy Alph... moreNote 3 chipset is Exynos 5 Octa 5420 not true octa core where as galaxy Alpha chipset is Exynos 5 Octa 5430 actually true octa core so i think there is some difference.
can you guys install gps status or gps tool box and gime me some accuracy reading from your note 3s ?
my is only getting 10m accuracy,10-11-12 inside a car partly cloudy, or just about any type of clouds, rain, etc , it never goes below 10m.
what's the point of gps + glonass if it cant get 3-4-5m ?
if i dissable gps and activate it after 30s at least, then accuracy goes to 3m for 1 minute top, then goes back to 10m.
please post you gps m accuracy from your note 3.
Does anyone wonder why the N9000 doesn't support 2160p video recording but the new Galaxy Alpha supports this feature?
For comparisons sake:
Galaxy Alpha has 12MP camera, Note 3 has 13MP
Chipsets are both Exynos 5 (2x Quad-core):
1.8GHz + 1.3GHz for the G Alpha and 1.9GHz + 1.3GHz for the Note 3
GPU is the same Mali-T628 MP6 for both phones.
Is there some specific reason as to why Samsung didn't give the N9000 2160p video recording support?
Surely is can't be the Chipset/Processor, it's powerful enough IMO...

Hi. How is the signal strength for you? I found mine N3 pretty weak in areas where my other phone (G2) is good. Also the wifi is disconnecting all the time even if the wifi signal is very good. Except for these, the phone is awesome...
Any suggestions regarding these two issues?
