    Does any else have issues with the phone? The net lags a bit and no its not my wifi because my s4 works great. Some of the apps freeze on me then it’s like the screen won’t let me exit out…IdK if it’s just my phone or all phones since I know their new and sometimes have glitches..HELP.

  • Joanna

    The camera is amazing!

  • david amodt

    Got mine today and looks nice. But, haven’t unboxed it as trying to do unboxing video for Youtube channel. Have two phones that I want to crack open and need to do unboxings for them. Looks pretty though, Note 3 pretty nice. :)

  • Erick

    has anyone found a good enough case?? I’ve been looking but can’t find anything,

    • Joanna

      I found mine on Amazon and got it today. I love the case. It’s called….
      SUPCASE Samsung Galaxy Note 3/Note III Unicorn Beetle Premium Hybrid Case (Clear/Gray) – Not Fit Samsung Galaxy Note 2/Note II N7100

      Its only 13.99 and if you have primetime you might be able you get it tomorrow if you choose 2 day shipping. I ordered mine yesterday and got it today. Very happy with the case. Also I ordered some cases from eBay.

      • Erick

        I saw that case, but I wasn’t sure, is it big as in blucky and add alot more to the phone??

        • Joanna

          You know what it’s a little bit bulky on the back bc it has the shock resistance but it’s very snug. I’m very happy with it. The clear grey looks very nice on the white note 3.

        • Erick

          I think i might get that one and see how it goes, I got the black note tho, will see how it looks on it.

        • Joanna

          They have different colors also.

        • Erick

          yeah I saw that, i got the black/clear. I don’t get it till tuesday, so till then my phone will be naked D:

        • Joanna

          Cool let me know how you like it.

        • Dan

          I ordered my Spigen neo hybrid case on September 15th. They are finally in and are starting shipping next week. I can attest to these cases as a buddy of mine has it on an S4 and it’s a gorgeous case. I got it on Amazon. Check it out.

        • Erick

          Indeed I order one of those as well, i got the Silver one, Ill see how it like it out of the 3 different ceases I ordered.

        • Joanna

          I was looking at that one also, I haven’t ordered it because I ordered the s view from eBay, original and it’s coming from Hong Kong. We will see, I like the one I ordered now bc I tend to drop my phone a lot and it said it’s shock resistance, so I will see. How do you like your phone? I’m noticing on glitch when I played words with friends. The screen was going black . Do you get that on your phone at all?

    • Brian D.

      I am going to pick up the Active style case when it becomes available. I’ve bought these cases for my last two phones.

    • thepanttherlady

      I saw this case while I was looking for a screen protector for another phone. Thought it was rather interesting:

    Has anyone had problems sending or receiving picture text messages? I can’t receive them or send them…
