Hi there im from malaysia..
Heres my comment after using almost a month this rose gold samsung note 3 N9005.
Battery- superb if 3500Mah but 3200Mah still worth. Watching HD movie for 1 and half hour battery just drain for 15%!!
Gaming- really smooth while playing MC4.
Spen-This was non comparable to others. Just awesome function.
Overall i love this sphone. Tks. Pls pray fir MH370. TQ
S SUDHAKAR, 12 Mar 2014Can you prove that the battery backup of google android phones are more than Symbian phones?. ... moreSo, this is how you bait to argue about how good Symbian battery efficiency is..? LOL.
Android is an open platform. Companies like Sony got it themed it to look and behave in a certain way. It's all about customization. These companies locked their smartphones for their guarantees. You know this.
Of course certain apps are always on, for reasons of notifications, and the general users unlike us would bother tweaking to fetch less frequently or no notifications at all. You know this too.
I bother reading and trying my personal modifications to my device because I can understand how to. Getting it back to its original OS state is also easy. I use root-enabled apps like Greenify to automate the hibernation of constant waking apps to save battery. I bothered to know. Most people don't. I would think you also know how.
Did Symbian have apps that are currently popular in Android now that much more intuitive? That automate things for you in the background? Did you have stable and fast 3G/4G signals before?
You don't expect smartphone screens resolutions and make to stay the same as your Symbian era device, do you? Yes, all these translate to more power hungry operations. Do the math. You knows this.
I believe most of you in your region don't have stable LTE. I have unlimited LTE for my consumption to my heart's content, using up to 7GB in a day. What do you think my power consumption would be?
Then get yourself Nokia Android device. I would expect no miraculous jump in battery usage ratio compared to the current long battery stamina performing Android devices.
"Nokia" using Android as an OS is ironic when they and fans like you have been stubbornly denied it. And now you accepted it after "Nokia" experiments with it.
Nokia has died, and now should been known as its present buyer - Microsoft. I'd love to buy a Microsoft Surface like smartphone. I wouldn't mind a good battery backup.

I don't care about videos as I told you earlier.

By the way, did you find any difference in watching a same video (1080p) song in N7100 (when you had before) and N9000?.

That was for your praises of battery backups of Symbian and constantly calling the battery back up of N 7100 as the worst battery back up. I didn't said you are spamming or using duplicate N7100. No question of acceptance as I never denied that there is a problem with 4.4.2 regarding SD card access. Still I am good with it and facing no problem as I am using stock file browser My Files.

But you, mrooney and paragb considered as spamming and called me nokia fan boy, my N7100 device as replica (duplicate model). Just think how much bad I have felt because of this.
I am happy that at least you accepted now.
So you are coming to say that there is no file copy / move problem using built in file manager (my files) and the problem arises only when using 3rd party apps. Right?. Please co-ordinate with others and tell me if this issue has been solved* or not in the future.
* means - without rooting in any way

I watch movies on phone only on night on my bed, I don't go for quality of the movie I go for the content. So pixels doesn't attract me, yes but display does when I go for gaming or normal usage on my phone.
S SUDHAKAR, 12 Mar 2014Ok. But why there is such a news report?. The problem may have solved after a update in 4.4.2.... moreI got it. This problem is persisting only in cases of third party file explorers such as Xplore, ( I just checked), or may be some other also, but inbuilt app MyFiles of Samsung had no problem in creating, renaming and moving files and folders. So it means third party apps are not given permission to do such things on SD Card. But still we have the solution until this prolem is resolved.

I think you or paragb replied me that there won't be much visible difference in watching a same 1080p video in N7100 and in the phones with display resolution 1920x1080. Is it true?.

Why they will go on manufacturing old sets when in the market better are avaialble for lesser price, and even same company goes on producing better and better and handsets why they will stick to old ones. Grand 2 had more Ram than S3, Note 3 Neo is better than Note 2, simple business.

The only one who is concerned about these problems is you who is not even using 4.4.2 even Note 3, that sounds very concerned and caring.

So will Samsung stop the production of N7100 after 4.4.2 upgrade?.
Have you used nexus 5?. If yes, how is android 4.5?.
