    ooops.. not yet
    Well, I am not keen on the wrap-around-the-edges screens, I am not keen on the 16x9 scree,ns, I am not keen on the non removable batteries,
    not keen on the non-SD-capable devices... and the list goes on, of the reasons why I now own three Note 3s, one brand new in reserve, two in service for
    business and private lines.

    Old grumbler....? You bet !

    Why not upgrade to a Note 4? I loved mine when I had it. Still got the Note 7 going strong....

    @cr6 does D have hers still?

    Thanks Miller. Really nice hearing from you.

    I am not visually comfortable with the "long" screens... the expression used is aspect ratio, I believe; so between 4x3 and 16x9, I find 16x9 uncomfortably elongated
    and (this is purely personal) a little unbalanced in look.

    The GS8 is a case in point... brilliant phone I am sure, but I saw it physically, and really felt the "too long for its width" problem. So, here is the real reason for my preference for the Note 3,
    the last 4x3 Note, unless I am mistaken. I can't help being over-traditional, perhaps... any new invention takes time to percolate through my old cortex Just moved from W.XP to W.7 !!!

    Awaiting Note 8, now.

    And, if it's anything like my S8+, the "vibrate" option should finally be resolved. This thing will vibrate across the carpet! lol.... Ok, maybe not the carpet, but the linoleum for sure!

    I finally got a glimpse of it this evening... like the elusive big foot. She's gaurding it like a convict gaurds his food in the mess hall! All I know is it's Orchid Gray... pretty cool color option. I'll be waking up early tomorrow to do a short comparison video while she's still asleep.

    So with most of you that I "stalk" here, I know few if any still have an S3 so this is an all phone question.

    Several of my lunch buddies have been noticing that over the past months maybe 6 or more our blue tooth hands free devices have been arbitrarily turning off while we are using them, unpairing. We only recently started comparing notes so to speak. An S5 (mine), S7 and and iPhone for example, two Verizon and one Mobile for the couple of us at lunch yesterday. I know some others, just hadn't started keeping a list, thinking now its getting worse.

    Generally all have been driving and the pair the Bluetooth menu pops up but not much help on the freeway or driving. I found if I reboot the phone all is well until the next time. But that's certainly a pain while talking.

    Anyway just wondering, haven't looked over on the other sites yet. The friend with the S7 thought its his phone and was going to buy new for that reason.

    Now maybe its the tinfoil hat part of me that says big phone brother is trying to sell more phones, just kidding but who doesn't like a good conspiracy.

    Not that it's not fun watching you guys have fun with your new devices or in CR6's case trying to watch someone else without being able to touch it. I'm just not ready for a new phone yet.

    I would say that, in general, Bluetooth is disappointing across all phones and paired devices. You'd think by now we'd have it nailed down. But alas my brother has an iPhone and complains of BT connectivity as I and my wife do with our Android phones.

    That said, I'm still amazed that I can power up my BT speaker and it just connects automatically. I'm amazed by simple things
