i purchased 2 months ago and expected that 20mb and 50mb updates are lollipop preparatio updates and this phone will get lollipop. but now it is almost 2 months over still no sign of lollipop and J7 model with 5.1.1 in half of this note 3 neo price. bad decision...
sng666, 11 Aug 2015before note 3 neo, i had a xperia m. Was very disappointed as the numerous updates provided fo... moreI used to own a xperia C, honestly, I loved that phone... Yes, I had some issues with it like, the battery draining 20% overnight and keyboard lag... But I believe that the keyboard lag was due to lack of the internal storage, it had only 4gb of internal memory. But anyways I loved the phone, the battery saving mode which sony offers is brilliant...!!
But, here again comes the fact that, sony phones are overpriced.. The sony xperia T2 ultra is priced for around 17000, which is too much... The phone has nothing special, the 13mp camera has grown old, 1gb can be easily found on some budget phones... Yes, sony offers quality but the price cannot be bumped so much, the moto G offers something similar in 5k less than sony....
Coming to HTC, dude, never buy a htc product... The midrangers are shit... I used to own a desire 820 and believe me, my experience with it was very nasty... No updates, lots of heating, very slow charging, bad battery backup, low performance were some of the issues which I faced... And these grew even worse when the phone started growing old, the phone would respond so slow that I started getting annoyed with it...
The note 3 and the note 3 neo, are one the best products that I've used... Only the note 3 neo lacks is in the new touchwiz department... I want the new touchwiz, its awesome... Even if I don't get lollipop update it won't matter me... Sadly there are no ROM's available for the note 3 neo. ...

@Vinod, Screenmirror can be used with SmartTV's only. For Non-SmartTV's we can connect phone using MHL-HDMI-microusb port cable. Just wanted reviews before buying the cable blindly.

Dude, you say sony phones are the best... Do you know that the sony flagships ar... morebefore note 3 neo, i had a xperia m. Was very disappointed as the numerous updates provided for this phone only worsened the issues, battery drain, no kitkat, several bugs, etc. Sony had promised that the update cycle for all lower end phones will be 1.5 yrs(or something like that) but in one year itself they announced that they will not provide further updates for xperia M. Was really pissed off with this announcement and i vowed to never purchase sony phones.
hence decided to go a note 3 neo as atleast this phone is very stable on kitkat as far as the several reviews and feedback i read on gsmarena.
another phone that i have is grand-2 which is another phone where users on various forum have complained that kitkat had lot of bugs and causing quick battery drain.
its better to go for motorola as they provide constant updates. this is the only company that provides updates to lower cost phones. Sony, samsung, htc etc all do not provide updates to lower end phones.
Dude, you say sony phones are the best... Do you know that the sony flagships are just becoming a flop and sony is actually doing nothing for it... Its midrangers have started getting too much old and outdated... The one you are using, the xperia C3, still uses the snapdragon 400, isn't that very outdated? In a few days the snapdragon 412 is going to come... Sony recently launched the M4 aqua, which also is nearly a flop because of the heating issues and low storage space... To say honestly dude, before purchasing the note 3 neo, I was looking for a sony phone... Yes, its very true that sony offers the best hardware... But in between 16k to 22k there is not a good phone from sony... The sony xperia C3 is just shit with only 1gb RAM, 8gb internal and snapdragon 400, something same was seen with the Sony xperia T2 ultra and T3, apart from these there was xperia M2... Or there was xperia Z1, which I couldn't afford...
If you even compare it with motorola, motorola has a good phone in every budget, even lenovo is developing, xiaomi also had its phones... All are running successful but where is sony?
Vinod, 10 Aug 2015This device won't work screen mirroring .if your TV doesn't have screen mirroring optionScreen Mirroring works with Smart TV's. MHL Cables can be used with Non-Smart TV (HDMI Port Needed), where one end is MicroUSB port which goes inside phone and other end goes into HDMI slot within your TV.

Today I purchased Note 3 Neo SM-N7505 (4G). But I am facing one problem. When I started mobile first time (and even again again), I saw some logo like "wo" in orange colour and something else written in Japnese. Then SAMSUNG logo appears while starting. Then I checked for software updates, it shows Registering Device and then gives messages Attention "Processing Failed". Write now it is Jelly Bean 4.3. Atleast it should give regular mssg that is Latest software have been installed.
Someone face the same problem? Device is not getting register for software update. Help plz.
still there is no sign of lolli update. samu pay hugh salary to their employee. for that they requires bulk sale to earn profit . thats why every 2 days they bring new models for public. after sale they don't care. its your mistake to buy that mobile. if you buy it then don't blame samu. its their strategy.
4.4.2 is best for note 3 neo . if there is update above this firmware. its can't work properly. the hardware is not capable. never buy neo version of any flagship device. if you buy then enjoy the product. never expect much more from that product.
