Its sad that all of NZ only has the Exynos version. Im getting very poor battery with the Exynos, around 3 hours screen on time. Cant seem to find the Snapdragon anywhere.

If it isn't present as an option and also isn't disabled when the system is set to silent, then this has been specified in the CSC files (Camera sounds = always on is a region-specific feature due to regulations in some countries around taking candid photos in public) and can't be changed without flashing another region's software or rooting the device.

Anyone seen a good deal on this? Even the parallel importers are charging the same as normal retail.

Installed my Spigen Crystal Hard surface screen protector this morning (ordered direct from Spigen, shipped USPS)

It is only just wide enough to cover the whole screen, so install was a bit of a pain to line it up correctly. 
However, fairly invisible once one. Only grip, the S-Pen tip doesn't flow across the surface as smoothly as it did without a screen protector on, no big deal however.

ALSO! Spigen crystal clear ultra hybrid case installed. Fits perfect and exactly what I was after. Doesn't reduce the look of the phone that much! Still looks the business.






The little things make the biggest difference.

On release day I cancelled my pre-order with them after they displayed some pretty spectacular lack of knowledge on when they might have ANY stock. Shame, as their pre-release price was great.

Mind you, easy to offer a greta price if you don't actually bother selling the phones.

Im still using my note 3. The app list on the note 4 sucks being paginated grids instead of a list, and I hate the lack of a menu button. Wouldnt mind if it was reconfigurtable back to a menu button and holding it did the task switch, because I use menu more.

Also there is no clock in the pull down bar, only on the notification bar which disappears when you pull down, it only has the date. So you have to push the bar back up to see the time to get an idea when notifications came in.

Have had the keyboard go all whacky on it, have had it rotate to landscape view when held portratit a couple of times using it, but I turned off all the silly smart camera options I could find and have not seen it do it again since then.

S Pen isn't compatible with the Google keyboard either. Multiple keystrokes are registered while the S Pen hovers.

So on the 30/10, after pestering Noel Leeming a little, I was able to pick up the Vodafone version of which they had 1 left.

The guy in store asked me if I was happy to take the Vodafone one instead of the telecom one...

Considering I originally wanted a Vodafone one anyway, but went for a spark one because they were discounted on labour day, I was more than happy to oblige!

Pb penrose had some non charging smart covers in stock when I was there today. Finally can put a cover on it and use the thing.

Rappelle:
pinkbellbird: <snip>

Not an edge showing or unprotected in my latest case! Spigen SlimArmor. It's amazing


How do the buttons feel on it? They look quite weird. Also, how have you found the kickstand durability so far?




Rappelle.... delayed answer but anyway!


My Sigen Slimarmor is the non-kickstand model, the side buttons are rubber, the volume buttons are fine to toggle, only a bit more 'firmness' noticed, the power button is quite firm to press, doesnt bother me too much so far, im happy enough that my note 2 is Safe n Sound in a tough Spigen case, since these pics, ive now has a Tempered Glass screen protector - have to say....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a Tempered Glass Screen Protector!
WOW, 100% worth the $$! super easy to install, the clearest smoothest protector ive ever used! wish Id known that sooner!

heres my Note 2 Spigen Slimarmor... pics taken with my mates Note3
