There is no doubt that Android (Google) + Samsung are spinning out far more innovations than Apple.
Apple is way too overhyped and delivers little true value compared to the noise it makes.
The patent process on mobiles should be revised and actually get a 5 year break so that all human beings benefit.
The note 3 is good but lacking in critical areas like
1) Dual SIM for unlocked phones
2) No IP 58 certification

Most note3 user boast their phones have ... moreStory 4 * Another jealous Samsung hater.
Cannot accept the fact that his favorite brand was beaten by Samsung.
Three True Stories for note3 user
Story 1 4K
Most note3 user boast their phones have got 4k resoution!
AMOLED(1080*1920) can't perform 4k resolution!
You have to buy SONY4k TV($ 7000)
So 4k is on paper and samsaung has use 4k to fool the customer!
4k in note3 is merely a form of oversaturated colour;
Story 2* 3g ram
3f ram means more apps you can install.It is not a miracle! 3g ram can be found two- third of opinion web pages
It is a vanity to talk!
Actually, Touchwiz needs over 1.2g ram and other useless apps need more ram
So, samsaung hsa to increase the amount of ram!
You can get 1.7g ram for your real use!
That's why 3g ram is only for advertisement***
Story 3 * Spen
Spen is marvelled by most note3 user
Of course, it is not useful for real life !
( eg. Waterproof z1& fingerprint sensor and 64bits performance on great iPhone is useful for real life)
To write and to mark, you need three steps!
( taking out spen, confirming& difficulty in writing with spen on screen)
You can use keyboards(English,Japan,Chinese)
And you can your own 10spens ( I mean your ten fingers)
In iPhone 5& 5s , you can use siri(voice service)you do not need to touch your phone!
Siri is very amazing( it is my favourite)
So , spen is being used by samsaung to steal your hard-to-find money!!!!
why i get a prevention information notification saying (an application had been forced to stop for an unauthorized attemp to access system in your device. it may be safe to delete an application from unauthorized route. check now?)
if i off data and on data with wifi off than will not be the message came out.
each time i on and off wifi(with data off) it come out. it driving me crazy now.
i already factory reset twice with no any app install my me and that stupid message keep turn out.
even i try off the verification app in security.
who can tell me what problem and i just get this phone two days i am shit hot now.

every time I toss my SG Note 3 in my handbag, it overheats and kill the battery instantly... probably it struggles to search for a link to a wifi or 4G until it go nuts.... is there a ways to prevent that without switching off the connections before I hide in my pocket????
This is somthing iv found in internet , its old article but explains a lot about Note 3 camera.
"...With this turn of events, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is now expected to feature the same 13-megapixel camera that was featured in the Samsung Galaxy S4. Many hoped to see an upgrade on the camera for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. While the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a popular device, it notably has certain camera limitations such as decreased capacity for low light photos and reduced ability to capture stable imagines, which encouraged rumors of OIS in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3..."
tauhid, 14 Nov 2013I m disaaponted too.i m from nokia x-7.now i m using gn3 sn-n9005 for 1 month. In low light pi... moreI think on low light is better to use low MP picture format 6 MP for example (i got better results that way). On 13 MP mode you just get more noise in picture which software try to compensate. This my lead to blurry picture. Other important thing is increasing exposure time in low light environment.In other words you need to be super steady or use high ISO value - 200 , 400 etc, higher ISO also allows you to shoot faster in low light environment but it also means that u will get more noise in pictures. That explain fact that most pictures taken with phone on low light are disaster.
You can try HDR mode or some option with flash. But if my theory is right i doubt you will get good results until Samsung fix software/firmware on N3 cameras.
Some manufacturers try to lower their product cost using some cheap business solution even in their flagman products ;/ This leads to very disappointing difference when it comes to comparing products.
