Varun Bajaj, 25 Jan 2014Personally for some reason i thought that 4.4 would sort of be a major update for our phone ..... moreyes. If it's your first Samsung phone then you will learn new things everyday. Enjoy it.
Varun Bajaj, 24 Jan 2014Thanks man.. will check it out ..:)Personally for some reason i thought that 4.4 would sort of be a major update for our phone .. but not much ... anyways i did manage getting the new original samsung certified cover for 3300 Rs. it does work much smoother and the response of the cover is much better now.. its hardly been a few days ive bought this phone .. really need to learn alot in it .. havnt used its features as yet .. lol
TheNeighbor, 25 Jan 2014For reading and taking notes, I highly recommend you getting the Note 10.1 2014 for its Wacom ... moreThe last thing I would do in the world is buy an iPad. Plus, Taking notes is a sub-part of the things I want to do, not the main point here. The main point here is should I buy a tablet for studying 2 hours a day for two weeks a year, and wait another year to replace my 2011-made old phone in summer of 2015. Because I can't have the money to buy both a phone and a tablet at a time, or should I buy the Note 3 for its compatibility ( I can't go to every place I want with 10" tablet ) and also have a big screen size that I can use to read ( or is the screen not big enough for that ).

Turned on my device back and the 'restart glitch' seems disappear.
I will update here if it happen again. :-)

If your current OS is working fine, there's less point in updating in a hurry for very slight improvements.
Hi Galaxy Note 3 - KITKAT'S user...
I just upgrade my Note 3 to 4.4.
Just one question, after updating to the new version of android 4.4, did your device keep restart randomly?
Anywhere, mine is N9005 - Malaysia.
Please reply ASAP. Thanks!!!!
MoroX1, 24 Jan 2014please guys , I need your opinions on this
I rarely need to study from my Phone in college... moreFor reading and taking notes, I highly recommend you getting the Note 10.1 2014 for its Wacom digitizer (S Pen) for writing and highlighting text, and multi-tasking screens. If you have a bit more, get at least the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 running full Windows 8.1 with a touch/type keyboard cover and it also has a Wacom digitizer system.
I have both Note 3 and 8. Get the Note 3 if your priority is for compactness. I'm only disappointed with the Note 8's short battery life of just above 5 hours of screen time. I also recommend new 8" full Windows 8.1 slates,particularly from Asus with a Wacom digitizer.
Don't waste your money on an iPad. You'd have a difficult time loading media, limited storage, no multi-tasking, taking notes would be slower and less intuitive.

please guys , I need your opinions on this
I rarely need to study from my Phone in college ( Motorola Razr XT910 , 4.3" screen size ) , you can say only in the exam week of the semester as there is alot of wasted time before the exam so I use it to revise some lectures , my phone serves this duty just fine but I think a bigger screen would be better for my eyes
So my question is should I buy a tablet like Note 10.1 2014 or Tab pro 8.4 as they would be better for reading and studying and wait a whole another year before I can buy a new phone and replace my old one ,
Or buy a Note 3 and combine the benefits of a tablet and a phone together
I am very upset about the galaxy note 3. It has broken on me twice. I had to get a replacement note 3 because the charger would only work if something was propping it up underneath. Only charged if you had it adjusted in a certain way. I just received the replacement and the SAME THING happened within a day. I am very disappointed.
The camera is fantastic.Do proper settings and use. The pictures are sharp with appropriate settings.After kit kat upgradation, the ram usage has come down. Best all round phone presently. This is a good forum.The actual users only should give unbiased comments.The only downside is it is costly . Samsung followed the footsteps of Apple. IPhone has only premium looks and applications are more stable than android.But apart from these, IPhone has nothing to boast of.
Kneeso, 24 Jan 2014Best phone ever by far. I've been using it for a couple of months now and it amazes me everyday.it is true.note 3 is best.
Very very bad worst camera quality please people dont buy this phone very bad samsung i had so much expectation from this phone
