Correct: Not meant to be and can NOT be useful inside buildings. The nature of physics can not be changed... the higher the frequency, the greater the reflectivity and absorption by moisture. Foliage has a great effect in the GHz range.
Yes I found the same scenario. It is cheaper for me to buy a phone and be tied up with a 2-year contract than 'finance or lease it'. I certainly don't want to pay $200+ in total monthly payments and not own the device after 2 years. The carriers will have to improve on the offers if they go this route.
This unit needs to be available through the 'top 5' carriers, not just AT&T.
Re: Switch from S 4 to Note 3
Upgrades are fine anytime YOU feel the technological improvements have real value. Improvements will always be right around the corner; it only matters what value you put on those updates. Every other generation jump is usually worth it for most folks.
Re: The screen is lousy
bluecoyote has got to be a troll. Had my GS3 since 1st day out. GF has one too. Many of my friends have the GS2, 3, 4 -- NONE have screen ghosting issues.
AT&T is worried
While I believe the Softbank majority purchase will ultimately go through, this shows the political influence of a wireless business in Washington. AT&T will do what ever it takes to slow, block, interfere with the growth of a competitor. They know this will significantly harm their business due to the enhanced, formidable competition. A big plus for consumers however.
Apple remains non-standard
:x Obviously Apple could have (should have) standardized and went with micro-USB to start. They had the chance. One more irritant to consumers. They made a bad call with the Lightning idea here.The difference adds no value.
