Those are all from other companies developments. Apple didn't come up with them, and they weren't the first.
You don't know what Samsung has really with their latest software innovations.
Air views is useful with your finger hovering an inch off screen to look to show content of folders,albums,email, messages and videos quickly. You don't need the S Pen for it.
The improved S Pen software Air Command is damn practical with scrapbooker and pen window. Scrapbooker simply compiles whatever with URLs, images, text. Very useful whole researching. Pen window gives you floating window apps. Useful that you don't need to close your current app to activate a calculator.
IPads don't have multi-talking splits screens. IPads don't have a Wacom digitizer. IPads can't rapidly share files Vida Wi-Fi Direct to ANY other devices. Apple has limited QR coffee scans to only Apple related links. In fact, not even the simplest memory expansion is not present. These are factual.
Be stuck with your iPhone and iPad. You seem to be still stuck with 2007/2010 "innovations".
Gents, I bought N9005 one and half month ago and just yesterday I started used the front camera, unfortunately it wasn't alike any other note 3 or even note2 as the picture was dummy and resolution was bad as details are not clear. Is it hardware or software issue? Plz give me ur feedback
Tcool, 24 Dec 2013Did you check if the sim card is still active? Try other micro sim card to confirm Samsung lacks what I call relevant innovation. The gimmicks in this fone are things a person will never use. I would never be caught being entertained by flipping through screens with a hand air gesture or by d dot that hovers over the screen and I would never pay for such. What I would pay for is practical and relevant innovation that adds value like ipad. Plus ipads last year's whether they fall or whatever. And ipads and I phone's are so perfect all they can do to improve them is just increase the power. FACT

organshifter, 23 Dec 2013I'm not completely sure, but I believe that I read something about having to make a phone call... moreYes I have done that exactly what you said and now I am enjoying my N9005.
I also bought it in Saudi Arabia and now using it with Philippines local sim card Smart Buddy.
Am using this now..and its awesome! As compared to iphone5 which i used to have a year ago before i switched to this, note3 is the best!
I have iphone 5 before.
Now SAMSUNG NOTE 3.
The new Note is the best Mobile in the word right now.
Amazing job from Samsung.
Note 3 is the best phone in the world but instead to buy iphone you should buy note 3 my opinion is that note 3 is the most top mobile now in the world.

Both competitions were open internationally. Thanks to unlimited data, and long battery life of a Note has, I can take breaks during my independent work. I'm not a Samsung loyalist. I still use my Apple iPod, my Sony smartwatch, an Alienware laptop and my Microsoft tablet.
Digital painting can be done on a Galaxy Note. The World of technology has now allowed portable standalone digitizer devices that last hours to do on-location drawings. I didn't say that is all people should be doing. The Galaxy Note 3 is a fantastic powerful media consumer device with a snappy screen and processing response. A Z1 has no digitizer.
I still keep my watercolours and sketchbooks handy for sketching. As an architect, I happen to use the Note for creative idea generating, communicating my ideas quickly, share those drawings immediately. I can generate 8000 by 12000 pixels exports with Sketchbook Ink. I only do Revit and AutoCAD with my laptop at the architectural documentation stage. I know when to use what types of drawings at different stages of designing. I'm not a slave of any particular medium.
I'd love to get the Z1 as a secondary smartphone for those wet situations.

Is painting what all people want to have their smartphone for it?no.even best paints are not comparable with the ones on paper.And a designer would never use a galaxy note because it does Not have accuracy of a mouse(+considering the screen size) or feeling of real pencil.So it's more like a entertaining feature than having real application in life,just like other galaxy features.
You Say Z1 can not survive during diving or under sea water for long.You think People want to capture "The Survival Secret" with a waterproof phone?anyway it's useful in many situations not just an entertaining thing.
wang, 22 Dec 2013Samsung galaxy note 3 is the king among all... Go for the snapdragon version.i am on n900 just fine, superb phone
i can't find note 3 Dual SIM. they wrote in its page that there is note 3 dual Sim.
Emet you need to flash your rom with an official update from Samsung for your region. this worked for me the last time i had a similar problem with my Galaxy S3, use Odin.

After you've done that, you should be able to use your local sim. This may not be 100% spot on, so hopefully someone who knows for sure will chime in.
