Steve J, 09 Dec 2013Note 3 is supposed to be a communicating device. They should not have removed the FM radio. So... moreHow will I know what's happening to my locality if I can't understand the language they use in radio broadcast?
Internet radio is better since I can choose international station even I am in a foreign land.
No need to connect the bothering wired headset in order to work.
I can use my favorite bluetooth headset and enjoy the internet FM broadcast from my country.
This renders the built-in radio useless!
Reason, 08 Dec 2013Poor reasoning. What about local communities who want to but Note III? Should they not listen ... moreBut in google play store you have so many aplikations for radio for example "Tune in "radio(i am using is great radio aplikation ) you can get so many station all over the world and is free just you need internet conection..But to buy this phone whitout internet is absurd..
So its not true that you dont have radio any more!
To especially snapdragon users, is the heating issues is still there or is now working smooth!!! What about the battery life /??
Note 3 is supposed to be a communicating device. They should not have removed the FM radio. So much live info is given and received through the radio. It is important to know what is happening in your locality. Furthermore you're not forced to pay data charges for info. It is hard to believe Samsung removed one of the greatest media inventions and yet Note 3 is supposed to be a media device!
I already have Note 2 and I'm finding it hard to justify a Note 3 purchase because of the absence of radio. It feels like I threw a birthday party and an old friend did not appear.
jenny, 09 Dec 2013which one is better? note 2 or nore 3?? i need your suggestion guys..Note 3 is the best.

Looks wise Samsung phone a bit ok but battery performance not good. Company has to think about

Better buy a basic phone with radio, you don't need Note 3.

i heard a lot of problems about android jell... moreThe only problem I have with my N9005 is a boot loop if i manually restart. This can be fixed by removing the micro sd card. I have seen people say that rebooting in flight mode avoids the boot loop as well.
I have had the phone for a couple of months and haven't received any updates. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER SAMSUNG!!
please guys i need your advice before buying it.
i heard a lot of problems about android jelly bean 4.3 especially when you update your device to it.

sammy123, 08 Dec 2013Coming from gs3 I have noticed that camera flash of note 3 is not good as s3. Flash light is v... moreI had a Note 1 and now have a Note 3. The camera is no where as good as the Note 1 camera. I cannot speak for the flash, rarely use it, but the auto focus is useless (hunts back and forth, get a lot of blurred shots - even in good light) and the general image quality is poor in comparison. Further, making adjustments is a pain. For example, to adjust the flash settings, one has to touch a small icon to enter settings and then touch the flash icon to cycle through the options. Why not just have a flash icon on the screen all the time? Sony's camera interface is WAY better.
And the video is wobbly.
I think that Samsung invested all the budget on the Note 3 in the processor and screen and sacrificed the radio and a decent camera module. Pity on the latter really, but I have a Samsung EX2F (camera) on me all the time, so I guess they win either way!
I am useing note 3 past one month nothing abnormal.One thing Iwant to know if any buddy tell me that how to mute the camera click sound as I look there is no option to mute or off the sound?
