The screen is lousy

Compared to the Note 2, it's better, but.... barely. The pentile subpixel arrangement means it's not a true 1080p display, and certain colors look particularly pockmarked (especially red.)

The worst part about Samsung AMOLED displays is the ghosting that appears after a month of use. Your display just looks constantly dirty as time wears on.
My Samsung Galaxy S III that I got at launch has no ghosting at all. The screen is just as amazing as it was the first day I got it. It doesn't look dirty at all. I assume you've never owned one, and if you have, my guess is you dont take care of your...

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.
I have two buddies who have GS II and GS III, I have used both of their phones, and the GS II is about two years old. Not only is there no "ghosting" on the screens, but there are no anomalies of any kind, and the GS II's screen is still bright, sharp...

...
I'm a moderate person, I don't like ginormous phones!

Slower data speeds on Note 3?

I've noticed my Note 3 has much slower data speeds in the same exact areas, versus my Motorola phones I've used. My various Moto phones could peak 60 Mbps quite consistently, but I'm lucky to hit 30 Mbps on my Note 3. Either way, both are MASSIVE overkill's for a smartphone, but I want to know if this is a carrier setting with the new Samsung phones, or if it's a specific setting or channel my Note 3 is defaulting to.
But I would love for you to cry me a river over your 30 mbps. Very Happy Granted, half of what your network is apparently capable of is not so good, but I would kill for a consistent 30!

Edit: okay so I missed the part where you admitted where either is a...
