Default Opinions.... Galaxy Note 3

I have a iPhone 5, I am thinking of getting a Galaxy Note 3, when I am due for an upgrade.

Anyone have the Note 3, likes and dislikes?

I don't like the android operating system, the guys here at work and our secretary have some android phones including the note and they complain about freezing and other problems and my wifes last two phones have been android phones and neither on lasted more than a year. Just my opinion and experience though.

I have the Galaxy Note 2.

The GN3 seems to have many of the same features

and drawbacks.

The pluses:

The stylus makes texting 3 times faster,for me. Also
makes navigation of the apps easier.

The screen is large, and very clear and bright,
as long as you don't have to use it outside in the daylight.

If you get the add-on screen-cover, it will likely
survive many hard drops.(mine has)


The Minuses:

The volume button on one side of the phone, and
the off-switch on the other side right where you
grip it when you answer the phone.
HEY,
SAMSUNG! you guys want to stop playing Nintendo
for a few seconds? EVER HEARD OF PRODUCT
TESTING? Blindly copying IPOD design "features"
is NOT the same as PRODUCT TESTING, trust me.

The phone, for me, has been a great tablet, but IMHO, is
difficult to utilize, as an actual phone. It is basically
a great, if somewhat slow, mini-laptop, but somewhat annoying
to take and make calls upon.

I had every version of the iPhone. Then I bought an iPhone 5 and I hated it. I was so tired of the same iPhone from 2007. I returned my phone to AT&T and bought a Note 2. I fell in love immediately.

My wife and three other friends who all had iPhone 5 dumped their phones for the Note 2 and S4 after seeing my phone. Last fall I used my son's upgrade to get a Note 3. It has been the best phone I've ever used. The camera is excellent, the battery life is outstanding and the screen quality is phenomenal. I don't have any issues with it seizing up. The thing works and works well. I converted two more friends from the iPhone to the Note 3 after they used mine.

Sorry I disagree, but like I'm a Ruger Fanboy , I'm an Apple Fanboy Geek! You should have kept your 4S like I am until the 6 comes out...the 5S has too many issues. I would get a 5C if sprint is still giving them away when we re-up in a few weeks,...let's see how many Macs have I owned now( since 1986).....At least 10, and I'm on my 3rd iPhone and my 4th iPod,...

I've had the Note 3 since February. It's the best phone I've had to date. I love the large screen. I like mocking my friends with with tiny iPhones, "so what does your phone want to be when it grows up." The pen adds a lot of flexibility to the phone. It's great for taking quick notes. Battery life is very good.

I've had it for 5 months and still haven't fully explored everything it can do.

That's funny that's the same thing a buddy tells me,the response is when your operating system grows up it wants to be iOS.
As a business person I do a lot of purchasing and banking on my phone and there is not enough security apps in the world to make me use any form of android.
The viruses and bad apps are rampant for the android system and if you own any phone with that system it is highly recommended you get a virus protection for that phone.
That is why for me I will never use a android phone.

Cool piece, but I couldn't justify the additional $180 (over & above the S4 at the time) for my needs, tempting as it was.
Worth Noting, the Rumor mill has september 25th as the release date for the Galaxy Note 4 (again, rumor, but worth keeping an eye on.) If you're a value shopper and the Note 3 will do it for you, then wait for the inevitable plummeting price the week the Note 4 hits the street. Conversely, if you must have the latest & greatest, then buying a Note 3 a couple months before it's replaced will very likely annoy you.

Quote:
Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 release date has been reportedly leaked, according to recent rumors surfacing from South Korea. On Wednesday, Korean-language site News Tomato quoted anonymous "industry sources" as saying that the Galaxy Note 4 will be ready by September 25. The previous Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was launched the same day last year. Even so, the accuracy of this report cannot be confirmed at this moment. - See more at: http://www.gospelherald.com/articles/51746/20140626/samsung-galaxy-note-4-release-date-leaked-specs-rumored.htm#sthash.SoxrthS5.dpuf

Ahhh, I love the Haterade. If iPhone users would stop drinking the Kool-Aid for a minute and see how much more versatile Android is this world would be a better place without violence and frozen yogurt and gingerbread and honeycombs and ice cream sandwiches and jelly beans and kit kats.
