Steve J, 09 Dec 2013Note 3 is supposed to be a communicating device. They should not have removed the FM radio. So... moreI just got this today! I've had the Note II for 11 months, and I use the internet radio all the time, and I can say I've hardly used the radio of the Note II. You can get a bluetooth earset with FM radio for below $50. You need to plug in the earset as an antenna, and that was a down point for me as I don't like wires sticking out of the Note. The built-in radio will not work without the earset plugged in.
I love the new stuff the Note 3 offers - language translator, air command, ir remote capability, lighter and thinner feel, more internal memory,new S Pen with changeable tips, and a lovelier screen. Nope, I wouldn't hold back just for the radio for this beauty.
friend.evil, 09 Dec 2013N9000 or N9005 Which one do you guys think is better? thanksN9005 is better
Tcool, 09 Dec 2013How will I know what's happening to my locality if I can't understand the language they use in... morefm radio is never useless to many people and it's always useless to many others, including myself so it is obvious it would be batter to have it, why? just because...as an extra feature for many (me too) and practical / usable for many others...what would be the harm of having it, that's the rhetorical question.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2013What is the best internet browser?Samsung (stock) - the fastest
Dolphin - almost as fast as stock, better UI and it fully supports flash player.
The rest of them just trash, no need to change from stock.
I want to buy note 3.
BUT PROBLEM IS I NEED 64GB inbuilt memory.
Is it available in India or Thailand.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2013What is the best internet browser?Ersonally I prefer Dolphin. Still no a fan of chrome. Boat is ok and opera is good for saving data.

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.
