    Default Former iPhone 5 owner now new to the Android world

    Hello, just bought my new Note 3 from years of owning apple phones. so far this phone is such a beautiful piece of technology, and I'm still trying to learn all the stuff the phone can do. I feel like I'm free of being handcuffed to the iPhone and Apple themselves. I do still own an iPad min, which has not given me any problems so far. I just came off the iPhone 5 and the phone was a huge let down for me. Then major battery issues started happening where I would have 50 to 60% battery life and the phone would shut off thinking the battery was dead, or the battery would drain instantly. Anyway I have a question; when dialing on the keypad I just hear 1 tone beeps. Is there anyway to change that to the actual dial tones?

    Welcome to android! Are you referring to the sounds it makes? I don't think it's possible to change unless you gain root access and replace the sound files associated with the dial pad.

    Thanks for the welcome.
    I'm used to hearing the actual dial tones when I'm making a call using the key pad, with this phone I just hear beeps.

    I converted from the iPhone 5 to the Note 3 about 3 months ago. Many things about Android is very different than IOS. It took me about a 4 to 6 weeks to fully appreciate the flexibility of Android over IOS. I didn't have a jail-broken iPhone, nor have I rooted my Note 3. There are numerous different dialing programs available for Android - maybe there's one that gives you the dual-tones. It looks this one may: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ial.paid&hl=en

    You'll find that the apps for Android generally provide a lot more flexibility than Apple lets developers have with IOS.

    Another question. I noticed when I take pics with low light they don't come out as sharp as my iPhone, is there a setting for this? The Note's 3 pics look somewhat pastelish. Excuse the mess!

    The camera in the Note 3 may be hi-res (13 megapixel), but it's not very good in low light. The iPhone 5 camera is definitely better in low light.

    The biggest issue with the Note 3 camera is that it can't focus and expose in different areas of the image. There are some very good image editing apps, but the camera app that I've found to be best that has decent image editing built in is VSCO, but the UI can be a pain to use. Although in the case of low light images, the OEM camera app performs best in my tests, but not as good as the iPhone.

    Did you have smart stabilization on or off when you snapped that pic?

    There are several lighting settings. You may have to experiment with them to get best results in different type lighting.

    OK friends, here are my other questions as I use the Note 3 day to day. While listening to music, sometimes for no reason the music just stops. Why is that? Also is there any way to get the volume any louder than 15? I feel it's kind of low.

    Do you get any new notifications or anything?
    It could be a loose connection with the headphone jack, so make sure that's plugged in properly

    I switched from Airplane mode to normal and it stopped. It may have been the headphone connection since it was when I was slipping the phone into my coat pocket.

    That's likely. It had nothing to do with the switch from airplane mode

    it pauses when I switch off airplane mode. I can't understand why it's doing it. I just did it now without the headphones plugged in.
    Ok, I did it again and it didn't pause. Hmm...

    Just downloaded "Power Amp" what a huge difference. I have a very good pair of Sennheiser's and I want the music to pop.

    It actually increased the volume?
    Cool, might just be an EQ setting.
    Which pair do you have?

    I LOVE these headphones. Whatever you throw at them they can hold. There very good all around. And they keep your ears warm in this terrible NYC winter.

    Lol! My M50s were the same way. Soooo warm, both in sound and in that they kept my ears warm. Would've been pretty good replacements for ear muffs

    M50 as in Audio technica ATH M-50? If so I own those also and those are hands down my best headphones. But I use them with my DAC and pre-amp connected to my computer.

    Yup, those are the ones. I need to buy myself another good pair of cans.

    I wonder if I should get a pair of headphones. I currently use Sony MDR-NC13 earphones, and they're pretty good! I'm no audiophile though...
