Any known issues with the Note 3?
I'm leaving the country for a year, but I'm eligible for an upgrade; because it'll be a pain in the *** to ship it back to the states for Verizon to fix, I'm looking for one that's fairly reliable. I'm leaning towards getting a Note 3, but I just wanted to see if there were any common known issues/quirks with the phone. No device is 100% perfect, but some issues are more of a red flag than others.
My mother has a Note 2 and loves it--but, it tends to freeze up fairly often (e.g., she'll be using the camera app, and it'll stop working; she'll be on facebook, but not able to upload anything; she'll be writing a note, and it'll freeze up; information randomly disappears, etc--not all the time, but enough that it's headache-inducing). Because she stubbornly refused to get it fixed, I'm not sure if that's a fairly common theme with Samsung phones, or if she just got a serious lemon. My Nexus 7 tablet is prone to freezing up too, but my Droid DNA phone is *incredibly* reliable in that area--after over a year, it's still just as fast and never has any hiccups with speed or malfunctioning apps. However, it has crappy SIM and GPS issues that make me want to pull my hair out. Especially because I'll be in a foreign country where I don't speak the language, I absolutely *need* reliable SIM/GPS.
If you can think of anything, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks!
