    Yeah, I'm with ya', there...

    ...except you know what REALLY has my attention regarding the Note III? The 3GB of RAM (Note II has 2GB), and the 2.3GHz processor (Note II has 1.6GHz). Those two things will make the Note III a screamer! Truth is, even with the 1.6GHz processor, the Note II's performance could be significantly enhanced if we could just have another GB of RAM.

    Still... for the amount extra that the Note III costs, I dunno... I've not found anything that the Note II can't do to way more than my satisfaction. It's a terrific phone... much better than the original Note, I can attest. It's unclear, though, if the Note III is really that much better than the Note II; and that will especially be true once the Note II has the 4.3 upgrade.

    Of course, you know how this stuff works: We swear we'll not upgrade; and then when our two year contract nears its end and the phone to which we swore we'd never upgrade is down to $99, we go ahead and do it. [grin]
    I wasn't sure about upgrading, but Verizon offered the note 3 for $90 on release day, and I bit. However for $300,I would have waited

    Well, it costs Samsung money to release these updates. How long should they push OS version changes out? 1 year. 2 years. 3 years? You only paid for the phone to work as is. OS version updates are really important its best to get a Nexus device. I have a Note 3 and I have no right to expect that they're going to update to 4.4 or whatever else Google releases in the year.
    What about charging for updates? My only peeve is the S Note app. The opening lag is absurd, while on extracting the S Pen the mini S Note runs faster. What happened here?

    2nd place annoyance is my the Gallery loads slow w/ my tons of photo & vids.

    App refreshes would be great, I would pay for them. Android updates I would also play for them but I can understand that dealing w/ Google is an obstacle & thus not every SS device will be supported.
