I am very disappointed with my Samsung galaxy note 3: the icons are ugly, not identifiable, there are too many colours and shapes; the ergonomics are poor and many functions useless to me (the air pen functions, the voice recognition); it looks like engineers have done miracles but ended up with a hard to exploit tool. Examples: to create or edit a note: 5 clicks (why add a step to edit after I click it; why have first a cover page, click again to access the text in read mode, then click to edit, then click to finish editing, click to close), please provide simple tools ALSO. Same for all, the menus, the contacts, everything is complicated. Camera is OK, but pictures management, my god: Samsung did not even plan to display the picture NAME, you have to click MENU then click "RENAME" to see the name... but they provide useless info such as the weather that day. I can't even choose what is displayed automatically (name, size). Samsung marketing team: you are wrong. Also for a long time, the Voice control went off alone when my Note was in my bag (button being pressed for a few seconds, even in sleep mode). But this silly voice control needs to be connected to InterNet, adding charges, and useless most of the time (for me). Same as the map system, wonderful Google Maps that cannot even let you click to select a start for an itinerary ("no connection to Internet") why can't it compute on the map directly. Even without Internet, without GPS, my old Nokia C7 was able to do that. Also to display the clock permanently (impossible to display permanently with Note, any display disappears after a time out THAT CANNOT BE REMOVED); and to wake up the phone with the alarm, I love this NOKIA feature: switch off your phone (to reduce power consumption etc) without fear, NOKIA will wake you up, and ask if you want to start the phone or not. Samsung believe they understood the show off of our epoch, but certainly not the needs of the basic user. Why did I buy it: friend recommendation, and big screen, and I needed a 4G. I wonder if should go for the Nokia Lumia, anyone?

Abusing Google and Samsung CONSTANTLY.
tanvir hasan, 04 Aug 2014primary camera very low mp, please up this.thanksOMG!
13MP camera and you call it very low as in VERY low?
Then what would be the main camera of iPhone 5s to you?
Then how about the main camera of HTC One M8?
sameer, 04 Aug 2014which 1 better between note 2-3.Buy note 2 if u listen to FM radio.

Been to Del... moreWhy should I get a mobile whose frequency is not supported by the mobile network in India?. I agree that 4G is just in beginning stage, but if you intend to use the current handset longer, at that time 4G may have launched commercially. Thats why. I just said samsung N9005 does not support Indian 4G network frequency. Some Indians are buying similar handsets from Kuwait thinking that they can be used in India. Think about their case !!!.
If you have to visit Japan, would you be stay stubborn with your basic non 3G supporting handet or get a 3G handset?.

If you feel LG is a better option, why can't you say that in the LG review page. I just asked about the 4G, because according to you that is the only thing that keeps LG ahead. Well if you require I will provide you more areas where note stands a better option. And please do know this everyone has there on taste. Don't degrade something which you don't like. Thanks.
