However, extreme comments that are sexist or racist aren't welcome here. I believe that most people would find your "liars will burn in hell' comment to be extreme and not in keeping with the posting rules.

They post as if they already used the unit for a long period and bash to the top of their lungs.
Remember this on S5 page:
"You, sir, have earned my respect. Exactly the point I tried to get across. Thank you very much. Just wait, Tcool will have a reply for me, as he always does."
Why do you have to mention me?
And you always contradict my statements as if you are perfect.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion! Who are you to dictate me what kind of things I want to post?
RAHUL1232, 03 Jul 2014will i able to update to kitkat in india and What about region lock ??????You missed my answer to your query:
Yes it will work, but after purchasing from Dubai, you have to use the handset in Dubai with a dubai SIM for minimum 5 minutes to unlock the Region Code.
Regarding update I think you can update but only when the said update is available for the Dubai sets, i.e., you will not receive with Indian versions, it may be before or after N900. It all depends when Dubai sets are updated.
I owned Note3 and I would like to say Note3 is good enough. I think Samsung provided a good device for us, but the problem is Android store didn't provide good and stable apps for all Android devices.
I like my note3 very much. It is good and very productive.
I just disappointed on why Android apps not so stable and compatible if compare with Apple store. I think sometimes is not my note3 problem, is about the apps make my note3 problem.
Tcool, 03 Jul 2014Why? You started posting derogatory things.
Even when I post something in S5 page you do that... moreBy derogatory things, I mean "liars will burn in hell". Believe that if you please, but don't put it on the comment board.
Tcool, 03 Jul 2014Why? You started posting derogatory things. Even when I post something in S5 page you do that... moreI don't hate anything. I post comments on other brands' pages, too. And by "derogatory things" I am referring to when you post rudly to other people who are not in love with Samsung like a spouse, like yourself. Why do you love samsung like it is the most precious thing on earth. Please elaborate on that question on whatever comment page you desire.
Gerry , 03 Jul 2014Sony Xperia Z2 or Galaxy Note 3?And another thing:
Z2's 4k video recording overheats after some 3 minutes, and the camera app shuts down. Sony hasn't even resolved this with a recent update. It's a hardware issue as the supposed superior pipe cooling system isn't working to cope with the large file processing. Not so with the the Note 3 4k video recording performance.
One of the best features with the Galaxy series is with the Samsung SideSync app that lets your Note 3 be remote controlled by a PC or Galaxy tablet. Hers a screen shot of my Note 8 remote controlling my Note 3:
I can make calls and operate SMS messages via my PC or tablet. Dragging and copying files easily between devices is possible with Wi-Fi Direct protocols.
I find this useful as I place my Note 3 by the window at home for better LTE reception while working on my desk in another room.
It's free to install to only to the higher ended devices like the Note 3, S5.
Robot286, 02 Jul 2014I never said you lied, and you should try not to post derogatory things like that.Why? You started posting derogatory things.
Even when I post something in S5 page you do that.
Perhaps in other Samsung models pages you also do that.
Why you hate Samsung so much?
Yet you come to Samsung products pages.
Gerry , 03 Jul 2014Sony Xperia Z2 or Galaxy Note 3?Z2 is a fine product, a whole better improvement from all the Xperia Z lineup. Better screen, better battery, more RAM, better processor and better seal flaps. Do take note that flaps of the Z2 easily detaches from impact, and that plastic attachment can easily break off if you're not careful putting it in tight pockets.
The bad side of the Z2 comes only with 16GB of internal space, unlike the Note 3's 32GB regular model. You'll only get some 10GB for installers and related data, and probably leave you with just some 5GB for media, forcing you to get expandable memory card for the Z2. The Note 3 gives you more than 26GB of user availability for installers and data. I got like more than 15GB still after installing all the productive apps and a game or two that I need.
You need to rely on charging of you're a heavy user by bringing a charger or power bank. With the Note 3, you can just change the battery and not wait to charge and not have the hassle of bringing a charger. The spent battery can be charged with a cradle charger at home. The Z2 comes close to the size of the Z2 despite its smaller screen because of those large bezels. Hers my comparison using CAD.
The Note 3's 5.7" FHD Super AMOLED screen is more efficient with dark background that the only 5.2" IPS LCD of the Z2 ( but it's not to say IPS is bad). I've already explained it in my last post.
Note 3 gives more features overall like an active Wacom digitizer, universal infrared remote control, and the speakers are rated higher and no distortion like the Z2, according to tests by GSM Arena.
Ronot286, 02 Jul 2014I am not disproving the note 3 is better, it is. I just asked if you could do a comparison. Al... moreI've held and tested the T2, and I have dealt with midranged and entry level devices before... Never expect spectacular things with cheaper devices. You've seen the link on the problems of the T2. That 1GB RAM is problematic. A bigger RAM would give me no problems in using apps that need a lot of memory to operate like CamScanner, Photoshop Touch, all of which I use a lot. The mere fact that reviews say that keyboard inputs hang on the device with multi tasking doesn't give me confidence that it's a reliable device when I'm writing my thesis with JotterPad (because I can write anywhere & whenever I can to develop it). I do need to to even run EZReader simultaneously to refer to some passages of books, and quote resources by copy-pasting. You think 1GB of RAM and that only 4GB of installer & data space is enough? It'll hang for sure.
The Note 3's right size with a 5.7" screen with less bezels can fit my top pocket, a 6" screen and wide bezel frames of the T2 can't.
The Note 3's brilliant FHD Super AMOLED screen is simply brilliant, that renders good colors, and real blacks than darker grays. It's very good at dimming the screen for trading in the dark by lowering the pixel lighting, getting lower nits, especially white text with background. Real smooth for the eyes at night. No such thing for LCD based devices need ambient lighting from the sides. It's still going to consume a constant power for lighting. AMOLED based types can reduce electrical consumption for screens by even more than half with white text & black background, with only the pixel lit areas tat are on consuming power. I was writing with JotterPad accessing my cloud account with the Note 3 constantly last week, encoding with a Bluetooth keyboard. It only consumes 5% per hour in my 3-hour sit down, and no hiccups:
No freezing happened, or restarts because it ran out of RAM like a midranged device would likely.
My point is, for 25% more of the price point of a T2 Ultra, which is something like $100 to $150 more, you can get a brand new Note 3 with all these features with good hardware reliability, and not just good battery life. This other guy championing the T2 can't even mention the facts I enumerated because he feels the need cope with his inferiority.
I want to buy a new phablet but i am confused between the htc one max and the Samsung galaxy note 3 my usage is not very high its average i think i play games like clash of clans, hayday, boom beach, and the only two heavy games is shadow gun and asphalt 8.
Thanks in advance..
