Hey there.

So I honestly am pretty bored with the Note 3. Maybe it's because I've come from phones with ROMs out the rear end to flash or it could be where I don't do anything too special with my phone (homescreen setups, themes, etc).

I flash ROMs and all that, but I still find myself bored with the phone.

So I ask, if you were ever bored with your phone, without moving to a different device, how did you get yourself content with your device again?

To be content with my Note 3 first I had to be thankful I even own one. Just like anything I own. Be happy with what you got because some people are happy to just have water.

I had to work really hard to get anything I suppose just gives me a different perspective in things.

Nova Launcher helps break the stock monotony for me. I'm a serial rommer, so we'll see how long it takes me to get mad with not romming my Note. Lol

Continually checking to see if the bootloader has been unlocked so I can finally run cm11 on what should be a rocket ship of a phone but isn't. Because samsung.

Im content just to have such a bad ass phone that can haddle pretty much and app or game I throw at it. I had the Note 2 for a year and then i switched to the HTC One. It was an awesome phone with awesome sound but I missed the big screen. My note 3 is stock rooted and I love it. I install a new clock widget every now and then but my phone is mostly stock. All I need is Kit Kat.

Don't you mean "because Verizon"?
But yeah, other things that keep me content with my phone besides gaming is Xposed MODs, and SNote for keeping score for Spades in real life...making use of it as "useful" rather than "playful"

II picked up a dev edition in dec, Which I have replaced with a retail. I'm still learning how to best use all the features. Like i just learned how to use the Pen Window today.

I also found a Sansung translation app for written and speech. Was having a blast with this and a Spanish speaking friend. He was speaking to his relative that knew very little English. Well he would start speaking in Spanish to his relative then started steering the conversation to saying stuff about me. He signaled to start recording at one point. When his relative responded he signaled stop, then i played it back in English for me. Well i put on a "shocked face" at what was said, then preceded to record and "Angry" response back and have the translator cuse him out in Spanish.

Vudu - Allows me to easily access and watch my collection if I happen to be stuck with nothing to do away. The larger screen also make it more enjoyable.

Music - I love the Adapt Sound. I believe also on the S4. It's basically a hearing test built into the phone, that adjusts the audio after it is complete specifically for your headset and ears. Makes my music on the phone a lot nicer to listen to. Also helps to have a large collection to rotate through.

Specific Apps
Remote control for LG TVs - I can control the TV using the phone and not have to reach for or look for the remote. Oh and it can take a snapshot of what's on the screen ATM. Great for sharing stuff with family & friends.

TiVo Remote - Manage most features of my TiVo without having to move into the menus on the TV.

Next launcher. Allows me to change the look occasionally.
