Flexible as in bends-instead-of-breaks would be pretty handy. I can't see them risking the Note series on something as niche as a curved screen.Wait, is it a flexible screen or a curved screen? A flexible screen is a huge marketing gimmick, utterly useless and if anything detrimental to this thing fitting into my pocket.
I really hate how the word "flexible" is being used wrongly these days. The phone is NOT flexible, it's preformed into a curved shape that is in no way flexible.
EDIT: Ok if it's a curved display like the video, where it curves off of the edge then that looks pretty neat, especially if that stays on independently for alerts and information. In terms of the metal body, I've actually gotten quite attached to the faux leather of the Note 3 and would hate to see more weight, lack of removable back, antenna slots etc that a metal case may bring. I would have no issue if they kept the same back and may prefer it, but I'll wait and see what Sammy comes up with.
Still VERY excited for this phone, I'll be first in line. I love my Note 3.
I'd believe it this time. Sammy have already announced the Galaxy Alpha which has a metal body and they fired their designer after the S5 so things will be changing in their new releases.Didn't the S5 have rumors swirling around with a "premium metal body" and it was released with a faux perforated leather back that resembled a POS '88 Pontiac's interior.
So, you don't believe that development of displays is driven by competition betweens brands/consumer demand for better specs, which means pushing the envelop in both pixel density and display evolution?I'm I the only one who doesn't want QHD displays on phones?
All I see are negatives: less performance (until the new Snapdragon arrives), less battery, totally unnecessary (1080P in my Nexus 7 2013 looks perfect, so why would it be necessary on a smaller screen?), can't really see a difference compared to 1080P, etc.
Manufacturers should focus on improving the displays, not making the resolution higher. We need better viewing outdoors, not more pixels.
TouchWiz on the Note 3 is pretty buggy from what I've heard. I had to flash CM on my friend's Note 3 because it was so unreliable on stock.What was exactly wrong with the GN3? With the 3gb of RAM, it never lagged.
I believe only some carrier variations since 4.4TouchWiz on the Note 3 is pretty buggy from what I've heard. .
My friend was complaining of bugs on an international (UK model) Note 3.I believe only some carrier variations since 4.4
International & Global variations didn't have the issues reported since 4.4 and indeed in my own experience it was the most stable and smooth Touchwiz experience.
I've not found any bugs in my use, well aside from the ones due to Android itself which are consistent across any Android phone I use. There is minor lag at times though. Just replacing the launcher does wonders.TouchWiz on the Note 3 is pretty buggy from what I've heard. I had to flash CM on my friend's Note 3 because it was so unreliable on stock.
For me it's a given, any Samsung phone I buy will be flashed with CM. Samsung hardware good, Samsung software bad.
