Should I get the note 3 or wait for the note 4 to come out end of this year? What are some suggestions here? I can't stand this phone anymore... No root really sucks

Dude, no root is due to locked bootloader and the fact that all current exploits are for 4.3 and below. If you get a non carrier S5 now thats awesome. Good luck though. I bet the N4 is going to be a killer

note 3 on the last version of 4.3, and all on 4.4.2 are not rooted.

you can basically count on all Samsung carrier phones on ATT and VZW being locked and non rootable.

Yes, new AT&T Note 3 owners with Kitkat are in the same boat as the S5, but there is this. You could also do the same thing with the S5. Unlocked..root...freedom...
