Dont really even want it - im rooted on stock Kitkat. Played with it on my N7 tablet enough to know its not worth upgrading to.

So I still love my N3 after a year but my battery life has gotten really bad. The biggest culprits are Android System and Android OS. I barely get 2 1/2 hrs of onscreen time. Any ideas or tips??

I do slightly regret updating my Verizon N3 to 4.4 because even though performance is good the battery life has declined. Has anyone else on the Verizon N3 experienced the same issue? If so, have you found a way to get it back to the old battery life?

I've been having some problems with some of the voice control features. For some reason it doesn't let me answer the phone by saying "answer". My wife's S3 does this just fine but my N3 doesn't. I have it turned on in settings but it just doesn't work. Anyone else have this problem and what can I do to fix it?

what app(s) is the biggest battery drain for your N3? Are games the biggest energy suck or is there a daily app you use that is just as bad? I've found that most games are pretty bad.

Nothing. But nothing. Tops the battery drain of "ingress". I love that game but it drains the battery like nothing I've ever seen. My old galaxy s2, modded and tweaked, used to go from 100% to ZERO in 48 minutes.
My note 3, which easily gives me 20 hours normally, can only play ingress for 5 hours. Dead.

The game uses everything.. Bright screen, GPS, data and possibly Wi-Fi for more accuracy. It's insane. You want your battery drained fast? Ingress. Truth be told, it drains the battery faster than a couple "battery drain" apps I've tried.

So I'm about to switch from Verizon to Straight Talk on my N3. Does this mean that I'll have to root to get any updates? I'm just glad to be off contract for the first time in 10 years!

For those of you that have updated your Verizon GN3 to 4.4.4, what has your battery life been like? I've found that mine is much better and I'm getting almost 1 1/2hrs more screen time. I haven't noticed too much difference in other areas but I took a risk to give up root for the better battery life. As of now, I'm happy with my decision.

So does anyone think the Note 3 will eventually receive the Note 4's newer software enhancements?

Yeah..I wouldn't own an iphone but it's easy to see why they (Apple) have customer loyalty regardless of what they produce. Someone once said "it's the humanist not the engineer who is the man of the future". Apple has made this their business model, and they have been rewarded for it. Sammy should give this a shot they may be surprised by the result.

Has anyone else had the issue of using Google Play Music with Chromecast? It often just stops in the middle of a song or when my phone's screen turns off. Ideas?

Do you have an LG phone by any chance? I have read about the screen off problem with LG phones. Don't know a solution though.

Has anyone tried their Verizon N3 on a different carrier? I heard that it can work on AT&T and T - Mobile but no LTE.

I met up with a friend at the newer location on Alberta after seeing it on my Google Maps. Parking wasn't too bad on a weekday morning and I got a place right on Alberta. The actual building is pretty nondescript and inside the place there's moderate seating. It wasn't very busy so we were able to take our order and get our food very fast. The woman at the register was friendly and helpful, giving me a couple of her favorites. I ended up getting one with brie, bacon, basil and a peach jam. Sounds weird right? It ended up being a great choice. The savory flavors of the brie and bacon were balanced nicely with the peach jam. The basil added a nice "herby" quality. They had a great selection of waffles ranging from savory to dessert. The prices were fantastic ($4-7) and it was surprisingly filling. If you love waffles in addition to great creativity, you should definitely check out the Waffle Window.

Since I'm always on the lookout for good BBQ, I definitely wanted to check out this place with my Family. I'd seen a promo of this place on TV and my friends that live in the area have told me to try it. First off, the location is easy to find and the restaurant itself is really spacious and clean. The decor is nice but nothing fancy. We went on Sunday for lunch and it wasn't too busy. We were seated quickly and the server was very helpful and friendly. She gave us some recommendations since we were new and made us feel very welcome. We both ordered the brisket sandwich with a couple of sides. The meat had good flavor and smoke. There are a variety of sauces at the table and they were good but not in comparison to some other places I've been. The sides we had were a mixed bag. The bbq beans were very pedestrian and tasted like something you could find at a grocery deli. The potato salad on the other hand was delicious. In fact, my wife said it was the best she's ever had. Pricing was about what you would expect at a place like this. It's not going to break the bank but you're spending about $10-15 per person. Next time we come here, I definitely want to try the breakfast menu because I've heard many good things about it. I'm glad we took some time to try this place out and I have no problem recommending it. We'll be back again for sure.

So we went to this joint after hearing about it from friends and seeing it on TV. Parking is tricky since it's in a pretty busy part of the city (NE Portland). This is especially true on the weekend but you should be able to find some parking around the neighborhood. We waited about 20-25 minutes in line (on a Sunday) and I'm sure it can be better or worse depending on when you go. I would always assume it to be busy on weekends considering all the press this place has gotten. You take your order at the counter and then the hunt for seating begins. Inside the seating is extremely limited where there are a few tables and a counter/bar as well. There is a patio that is covered and heated which I felt was a great addition. Seating there is limited as well. After we ordered our food, we waited around for about 5 minutes to find an open seat (outside) and waited for the food. I was surprised that the food came as quick as it did for being so busy. I'm not sure if this is always the case but it's always a bonus. I ordered the "Reggie Deluxe" which is essentially everything but the kitchen sink. I thought all the components of the dish were tasty (biscuit, gravy, fried chicken, cheese, egg, bacon) but it didn't blow me away. I thought the biscuits were good but got overshadowed by the other ingredients. Perhaps next time I'll try another one and see if it's the same or maybe just get a plain biscuit. I would say for the $8 price point, it was extremely filling (consider the ingredients!). I didn't get to interact with the staff much because they were slammed but they seemed pretty friendly. Overall, great neighborhood, good food and fun experience. I will definitely go back but most likely on a weekday. Go check it out if you're in Portland.

The BEST movie theater in the NW period. I've been to all 3 Cinetopia locations and while all are excellent, I believe the newest is best. The screens are huge as are the theaters themselves. Picture and sound quality are second to none. Some other theaters have implemented digital projectors but not for all their screens. Cinetopia is ALL digital super HD. I like that there are "living room" theaters for the GXL screens but please note they are on the balcony level of the regular GXL auditorium. This shouldn't be a deal breaker because you're still separated from the main audience. If you want a movie with strictly the 21+ crowd, go to the other Mill Plain location. Concessions are fine with the typical "butter bar" for popcorn loves. I do appreciate that the Mall location differentiates itself from the others by offering an extensive beer menu. Also, the food menu is different as well with more "pub" style food. They can either serve you in the living room theaters or if you get there after the service ends, just go into the restaurant and order at the bar. New addition: 3/14/13- So after going to this theater multiple times I am still a huge fan of the movie watching experience. I have been however, very disappointed with their food service. They are extremely slow (especially during busy days) and the service staff in the living room theaters seem to be a little lost. I think they still have some organizational issues to work through. It doesn't seem to be as smooth as the Mill Plain location but perhaps because it's a bigger location. Regardless, be warned that if you order food at the counter or in the living room off the menu, you may be waiting a long time. Getting to the theater is not complicated. All living room and movie parlor screens are upstairs and regular screens are downstairs. Park on backside lot for upstairs and the frontside (where you see the food court windows) for downstairs. Honestly folks, it's not that complicated and you'll figure it out. Obviously, it's a benefit to have it at a mall in case you get their early and need to burn some time or you want to grab a bite to eat. Lastly is the price. If you just want a regular, non-3D movie then the grand auditorium prices are the way to go. It's cheaper than Regal and the experience is not even a competition. If you want something bigger, better or more upscale you should opt for the more expensive shows. Groupon and Living Social offer deals frequently and if you ever see them, GET THEM. They're usually between $19-21 for two tickets and a $7-10 voucher for popcorn or drinks (including alcohol beverages). This goes for ANY show at ANY time on ANY of their screens. My wife and I get these all the time. So ignore some of the other reviews because most were done when the theater launched and now things are running very smoothly.

On yet another family outing, we decided to go to a highly recommended and talked about ice cream place in Portland. We ended up going to the Alberta location in one of our favorite Portland neighborhoods. I was a very warm early May Sunday, and ice cream was a perfect compliment. The location is small with very limited seating. Parking can be a hassle depending on the day but be prepared to park on one of the side streets located in the neighborhood. Also, be prepared to wait. The line wasn't too bad but it took about 15 minutes or so to take our order. Once you get to the counter they will let you sample anything they have before you decide. I HIGHLY recommend this. This place is known for extremely unusual flavor combinations when it comes to ice cream. The staff was patient and friendly even through the busyness. I ordered the Strawberry, Balsamic with Black Pepper. The unique flavor combo was weird but very good. I did try some of the other flavors so I'm looking forward to going back to try some others. It sounds like they are always experimenting with new flavors and combinations. I feel like it adds to the personality of the place and is a perfect fit for Portland. Pricing is reasonable $3-5 per person and you can get some to go. So go, be brave and adventurous and take a causal stroll in NE Portland with some ice cream.

Best burger joint in the Couve. Everything is handmade and fresh. Great variety of burgers that show a lot of creativity. Good beer selection as well. It's usually not too busy and parking isn't too bad either. Prices are affordable (compared to burgers of similar quality) and the staff are EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. I try to frequent this place as much as my health allow!

Good food but I had a very bad experience with the owner. I was there with a friend during lunch and it was fairly busy. The owner came up and actually told me to hurry up and pay our bill so we could give up our table! We had only been there about 40 min. I've been to Hula Boy many times but never had this happen. As a matter of fact, I've never had this happen in any restaurant! Very disappointed. Watch out the next time you're there when its busy. You may be rushed out before you're ready to leave!
