    Default Upgraded to Note 3

    So i upgraded to the note 3 today and i am due to get the phone tomorrow was this a good choice ? or should I cancel it and wait for the new HTC One or s5 I currenly have the s4 and i enjoyed it but got fed up with Touchwiz.



    Specs wise the note 3 beats the new htc and the s5 but is it a better phone? did i make the right choice or should i just wait.


    Many thanks for your help

    Welcome to Android Central
    I think you made the right choice. Of those 3, I would have chosen the Note as well

    I think the Note 3 is a great choice!! When you start out the size might bother you but you get used to it quickly, and you will Love the screen. No need for a tablet anymore - hell, I don't use my laptop anymore!!
    The Note 3 is so much faster.

    I don't think there will be anything to dislike about the device, but you can look I to the exchange policy just in case.

    Glad to hear your enjoying and to answer the question what is the best rom for the N9005..

    I have tried quite a few sweet rom, Beanstalk, Carbon, Echo, Fast & Famous & Foxhound but I always go back to X-Note.

    I'm guessing you would like to retain S-Pen Feature's So avoid light Roms like sweet, Carbon, Beanstalk, as these are ASOP I believe and don't have these features therefore making it light.

    I would recommend either Fast & Famous or My Favorite X-Note.

    I got mine recently - within the past month - and couldn't be more pleased. The first time you're on a phone call and pull out the stylus to take notes you'll start to realize just how good the device really is. Good luck with it!

    Congrats!!

    Love your note 3. Squeeze it. Hug it. Make it squeal. Then put the dang thing in a case before you accidentally drop it and start a thread asking how to fix it.

    I'm loving my Note 3, S4, Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung Series 7 Chronos laptop, 55 inch Samsung smart TV, Samsung Dishwasher, Samsung microwave, Samsung wireless sound bar, 2 Samsung blu-ray players, 3 Samsung monitors.....OMG, I just realized I'm a walking Samsung advertisement and showroom....kill me...please.

    Thanks for all the great posts guys. I have to say the note is a amazing phone but i am still not sure if i should return it for the s5 simply because the s5 is newer and has the new version of touch wiz.

    You have obviously have not spent enough time with your Note 3!!
    There is so much packed into your N3 it will take some time to explore! I've had mine 2 months now and I learn something new almost every day! Work with it.
    Wait till your last exchange days then compare side by side.
    I would be surprised if you left without your Galaxy Note 3 !!!!

    if you find the size okay, its a great choice, neither next HTC one or S5 would be an upgrade from it.

    However, all samsung phones have TW, if you are fed up with s4's TW, not sure how N3's TW would be any better.
