On the paper specification is really pleasant 3gb ram fats CPU and USB 3 and etc
But these 3 GB of ram ? really do you need this 3gb. Fast CPU but, does the apk is optimized for this CPU GPU NO some apk works ok some not Some games loading fast some NOT and .it is always waiting for updates to fix this
Samsung phones start remember Windows operating system Updates and updates and new Phone after 6-8 month
Anyway it is not the phone hardware fault but mixing samsung apk + bloatware apk with android become tragic Samsung have they apk store + knox for the point security for ???? Samsung : store , link, hub, sync , S voice and other 50 applications and plus on this top you have android applications
My review point :
I have looked to Apple side but the price for devices always take me back to Samsung Im talking 2010 -2012
My First samsung products S2 , S3 was something really good new design and compare to iphone 4 , 3gs at this time offers lots for the money + the price was half price as the iphone
NOW NOTE 3 I have accident and the front glass smashed
To replace on Note 3 Screen Samsung Service center want 180 Pounds ebay 130-160 For the screen assembly + you do not know are they not refurbs
Iphone 5s screen on ebay for 40 Pounds Ipad Retina Mini the screen + glass lens for 55 Pounds on ebay
Iphone / Ipad will be my next device and I think I will move completely from Samsung
From 2013 to now Samsung Increased devices the prices + bloatware
Galaxy S4 when released cost same as Iphone 5 But the quality for build 2 times less then Iphone
Software Optimisation IOS on Iphone Do you need more to say more .
My 3 year old Ipad 2 have still full day battery life all games working fluent all apps working ???
Ipad 2 have 512 mb of ram and dual core CPU ? but runs ok fine
Note 3 with 3 GB ram must be killer for my old Ipad 2 but I have run simple game Angry Bird go and Note 3 Was more lag than Ipad ??? Same with other games
Forgot to mention battery life Note3 :
Sometimes when I do some intensive stuff like playing with pictures editing , games . video , the battery indication drops 1 percent per 1/2 minutes on Ipad 2 I can play all day and still have battery left
The next Year I will be replacing Note 3 to Ipad mini Retina 4g + cheap android phone now Im stuck with Samsung but not for long ..
1 To expensive to buy same price as Iphone but the quality 2 time less
2 bloatware by default tray to remove losing warranty WOW
3 battery life ........
4 Performance Ipad Retina mini will outperform any Samsung device by graphic by CPU ....
5 Quality of the device Samsung all plastic
6 Parts to replace samsung will be 2 times more expensive that Iphone
7 Samsung phones do not keep the price at all you pay same money as Iphone but when you need to sell you will get nothing If you want to sell Iphone you always find good price money for the used one so paying high price from the begging latter can sell as well high price
