Galaxy Note 3 Lite/Neo

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard about this? Supposed to be a slightly smaller version with features in between the Note 2 and 3.

I came across it while searching Note 3 info. I'm eligible for an upgrade on Feb 1st and was set on the Note 3. Sprint threw a wrench into my plans by turning on Spark here in DFW. The main thing I would like to know is if this will be Spark enabled if it comes to Sprint. I have not seen any discussion about the phone at all. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

Would you really purchase a device that does not support tri-band LTE at this stage in the game?

That depends on what is available. I'm not going to buy a phone that is Spark enabled just for that fact alone if I don't like the phone. It would be great if this one is tri-band and on Sprint which is why I'm asking. It seems to me that they would add that capability now that they have the chance.  I really like the size and capabilities of the Note 3. I currently have the Evo 4gLTE and was looking at the HTC One Max but, I am a big picture taker and I am not sold on the camera system in it (I haven't had a chance to go hands on with one yet so that might change). I kinda like the LG G-Flex as well.

Yea, I believe all of Sprint's high end smart phones will be tri-band from here on out. The Note seems to be the last one that did not make the cut. I was just thinking, in your market (DFW), tri-band support will progress relatively fast. That's just something I wouldn't want to miss out on.

To echo Ben's point, it was said a few months ago that all 2014 Sprint devices would be Triband, except the iPhone. They said that they are not able to comment on Apple's plans for devices in 2014. Which is to be taken as neither confirmation nor denial.

My mom went from the DROID RAZR to the HTC One. She hates the camera in her One. I've seen the pictures she has taken. They definitely look poor compared the my G2 and my sister's S4. I keep hearing people claim the Ultra pixel is superior, but I have never once seen a picture taken from one that impressed me. Definitely keep that in mind when thinking about the One Max.

 

That being said, not sure about the Note Lite. I would, however, imagine the Galaxy S5 will be around the corner and basically the size of a Note Lite but more powerful and Tri-band. I'd say keep an eye out for that.

I would much rather go with the LG G Flex than the HTC One Max.  Since screen size will be the same the size of the phone for the G Flex will be shorter, less wide and thinner, bigger battery and better processor than the One Max.  The main "knock on" (no pun intended..haha) the G Flex is the screen resolution is only 720p which is still pretty good but the expectation was that it would be 1080p.

I guess it's too much to be able to offer 1080 resolution and fold it like an electronic taco. :roflmao:

I love tacos.

 

I am happy, however, to see Samsung and LG taking chances here in the USA. I've seen over the years many cool gadgets come out that are only for sale on Asia because they were so funky and out of the regular mold. I hope the Flex does well and maybe the Galaxy Round will come out.

Samsung told Engadget that the US isn't expecting a release at all... only for select regions/countries:

Boo! So much for that option. Thanks for finding and posting that. Guess I'll be sitting on my EVO for a while.

    • Existing sites have all been upgraded, but the network around here was not designed to blanket LTE.  I recognize that the coverage maps often indicate that coverage is acceptable, but that just isn't the case.   Attaching a pic below that has a blue square.  Illinois Route 47.  Its not an interstate, but still a busy state highway.  This is an area where placement of one additional tower would ensure contiguous LTE coverage from Dwight down through Forrest.  It is equally as bad as you travel farther south on Route 47 south of Forrest.  Phones hang onto LTE for dear life, but drop down to 1x and 3g as the town of Strawn is approached.  From Strawn south nearly all the way to Gibson City is 3G or 1x. Site spacing is great for 1x voice coverage, but its just not there for full-time LTE coverage (no matter which band is being discussed.) Every time I'm in one of these areas, I'm reporting the issues in the Sprint Zone.  At one point in time Sprint was working with Illinois Valley Cellular through the Rural Roaming Partner deal - but I have yet to see any indication of connecting to IVC Equipment.  The partnership started in 2014, and it is now nearing the end of 2017, and I am fairly confident that IVC has not held up their end of the deal in moving their network to LTE.  All of that being said, it is not a big deal at this moment.  It will be a big deal at the point in time that a decision is made to shutter CDMA, if the holes are not fixed.     edit:  relevant to this thread - even a Sprint/Tmo merger would not fix this problem without filling in gaps.  
    • I don't think so... the radio in the S8 just performs way better in low signal based on my tests. My coworker did similar tests on a TMO V30 and has similar results as well. It might be a software issue with the phone...

    • It is on the expansion map that was released recently... when I'm not sure. As far as I know it's still 3G up there... outside Marquette they added some unlimited US Cellular roaming based on the latest map update.

    • Completely wrong thread or market but it looks like sprint plans to bring LTE to the upper peninsula aka Marquette MI. Can anyone confirms this ? I see some marginal activity in the Sensorly app

    • Anything new to report about band 26 for SoCal or is this all a pipe dream hoping it gets cleared for rollout before 2027 ?
