Sold my iphone5 for note 3. Good decision since im looking for a bigger and brighter screen. Battery is excellent. I don't have to bring my power bank anymore. Not unlike with my iphone5 I have to charge it twice a day. Things I dont like is the sound quality of the music player, its not that good compared to iphone5 specially if your using Bluetooth headphones. The other is the camera although it has higher pixel rating compared to iphone5, pictures are not the clear specially for low light conditions. I'll go back to apple if they will release a phone with at least 5.5in screen size.
I live in India ( delhi ) i recently bought note 3 indian version from flipkart .

AnonD-20890, 15 Mar 2014This is the character of the samsung phones since the I9500 model.What are you doing here??? have you left the note 2 page? Don't argue with the battery life here plz.
Really good and stable phone.
Has a great design than galaxy s5,
really love it
I was quoting from Wikipedia. Present Super AMOLED screens of S4 and Note 3 are even more brighter under sunlight with auto brightness mode. It doesn't mean Note 2 is bad. I used the Note 2 for 11 months and it still is very good with a vibrant screen.
I still use my Note 8 with TFT, and it's screen is clear enough. The worst types of screens have been Xperia phones with terrible viewing angles that discolors or aren't eligible. Z2 has promised to end that with some good reviews of late.
TheNeighbor, 15 Mar 2014I do keep my screen brightness to about 30% and I find it brought enough. It is a misconceptio... moreMy N7100 and other phone based on AMOLED display is easy to be viewed under any bright light (if auto brightness is enabled). But you are saying it is not so. Gsmarena has said in Samsung G7102 review that G7102 has poor sunlight legibility. You are saying that TFT and LCD displays have good legibility under direct sunlight. How is it so?.
really if upgrade 4.4.2 kitkat it has bad step...But what it can happen???
Happy with my new note 3 white gold. Although an update came too fast & i noticed my handset to heating on the earpiece part down to the center. Can anyone help me with this? Is it true that the new update drains battery fast?
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2014At what screen brightness level do you use your phone?I do keep my screen brightness to about 30% and I find it brought enough. It is a misconception that Super AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) "hurts" your eyes "because it's so bright" than LCD or TFT types. It's the other way round as LCD based screens have side ambient lighting.
The pixels of AMOLED based screens are self illumination. What's black on the screen is what pixels are off. "...the black pixels actually turn off, AMOLED also has contrast ratios that are significantly better than LCD." That's why I like darker themes, and consumes lower power. You can further lower the brightness with the Screen Filter app for easy on the eyes reading at night.
"AMOLED displays may be difficult to view in direct sunlight compared with LCDs because of their reduced maximum brightness." However, the auto brightness is actually higher than the manually adjusted brightness against under sunlight.
"It has the broadest color gamut of any mobile display of up to 97% of the Adobe RGB color space, hence making it a wide-gamut display." You can switch to the color mode you want,ether you want things to pop or just plain realistic in movie mode.
AnonD-243948, 14 Mar 2014When kitkat will be available in UAE??? Hello. I would suggest out of my experience not to rush for KitKat upgrade. Battery drainage & Over Heating issues kills all the excitement! Wait till Samsung fixes the issue. Rest is your call.
AnonD-121248, 14 Mar 2014@ Sheikh,
Please provide the Information you get from *#1234# from the one which didn't get... moreThank you for taking the time to reply. I confirmed today from Sam Mobile. I have a UAE bound set & no KitKat update. NOT UK set.
Also can you suggest on this "An Application has been forced close....." notification, every time I switch on Wifi? What to do?
