Abaddon-ISJ5, 12 Jan 2014Why too much praise dude?These are facts why people choose the Galaxy Note 3 over an iOS device.
You choose iOS for its simplicity and the smoothness you all keep bragging about. But others need more than what Apple is offering.
Does it have memory expansion? Nope.
Does it have an active digitizer? Nope.
Does it have a removable battery? Nope.
Does it have a bigger and higher resolution screen? Nope.
Does it have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct data transfers? Nope.
Does it have DNLA protocols to any smart TV? Nope.
Does it have directed weed connection to a monitor or projector for my presentations? Nope.
Does it load music or video content without a computer or downloading? Nope.
Does it have do saving of attached content onto the device's memory? Nope.
Does it have other internet browsers other than Safari as default when pressing a link? Nope.
Does it have hover preview with a finger? Nope.
Does it have swiping gestures for keyboard input? Nope.
Does it have multi finger gestures as shortcuts? Nope.
Does it have multiple windows? Nope.
Does it have infrared for remote controlling? Nope.
Does it have fast data transfer speed as a USB 3.0? Nope.
Does it have customized widgets? Nope.
Does it have a back button or menu button? Nope.
Does it do true multi tasking like downloading torrents while you are doing something else? Nope.
So, thank goodness for an Android choice. I can't be limited with iOS.
[deleted post]News flash champ... iOS is the most basic OS on the market (i.e. extremely short on options and features and targeting 13 year olds and mothers).
[deleted post]And there it is. Just the outright absurdity. Can't even enumerate anything about any of the Apple products you supposedly have over the Note 3 without resorting copy-pasting from other writers.

"was" implies past tense, meaning you aren't using it anymore. Dropped it in your supposed skydiving? I'm sure it did.
"Samsung is slowly catching up to apple..."
Nope, Samsung caught up since the Galaxy S2. In fact Android is more versatile than ever. This video alone will tell you all about why Android is ahead:
"...but still have a long way to go."
It's the other way around. Apple has resorted to copying Android features. iPhone can NEVER replicate the extra features the Galaxy Note series have.
No memory expansion.
No NFC for a bit of connection automation.
No Wi-Fi Direct to any device.
No Bluetooth data transfer to other device.
No infrared blaster for remote controls.
No ambient temperature and humidity sensor.
No user removable battery.
No direct wired to projector or TV.
No stereo audio for video recording.
No Wacom digitizer system.
The Note has all the features above. More features than you know because you don't have the actual device.
"But keep it up samsung."
Apple is behind in its innovations after Steve Jobs died.
"Good effort on this device."
The Note 3 is currently the most features and most versatile device in the market. Samsung did the most excellent effort.
This was a good phablet for me. Samsung is slowly catching up to apple but still have a long way to go. But keep it up samsung. Good effort on this device.
[deleted post]C'mon, Apple doesn't even have a file explorer.... or a phone screen above 4" :-) (Plus, iTunes SUCK$!)

ddas, 12 Jan 2014So wats d meaning of 3GB RAM if most of d time 1.5GB n above remains occupied? Wat does so mu... moreRAM is used for quick re-opening of apps. The more apps you open the more RAM you will use. When the RAM is running low the Note 3 uses a process called Low Memory Killer (LMK) to free memory by closing apps from the least recently used (LRU) list.
This means that the Note 3 is simply making the most of the extra RAM to keep as many apps open as possible for quick opening. It won't actually slow your phone by having a nearly full RAM as the Note 3 will automatically close LRU apps as required.
Parbinder, 11 Jan 2014Mine shows 1.86/2.66So wats d meaning of 3GB RAM if most of d time 1.5GB n above remains occupied? Wat does so much runs to occupy so much RAM in Note3..ne idea guys?
Watch out guys.. Some "Play Store" paid applications are free on Samsung App.
I think those are a dedicated gift for Samsung users.
And by the way "My Files" app is a gem.
