    Using Odin apparently voids the warranty so didn't really want to attempt this. @mac_shinobi, no other options available to me unfortunately though may give three a call and see if they can do anything more!

    3 can be a pain as you have to have a 3g enabled phone...so you cant buy a cheap £20 temp phone, as i recall the cheapest 3g enabled phones are about £80, i could be wrong though.

    Ugh great. I did find this post How to fix Android 4.4.2 KitKat problems on the Galaxy Note 3 - AndroidPIT and it seems I am not the only one with issues! There was huge issues when updating the S3 to 4.3 aswell, Samsung really need to get a grip these aren't cheap devices and if they can't even get a simple update right I'm starting to loose all faith in their products, one time is ok, two times gets a bit silly but 3rd try and I start to get Pi***d off!

    Was actually my first choice at one stage but the 5" screen is too small for me I like big screens as I watch a lot of videos and do some video editing on them and the phone itself even though is very good is too basic. I like the fact I can have Two apps running side by side, the S -Pen for jotting my notes on, good camera, USB 3.0 Technology for fast transfers and real quick charging, I could go on. I use these features all the time and stock android just doesn't have that functionality though is more stable, like the 1520 looks great but not being able to run two apps on the same screen is a huge put off as I've got so used to it, plus it runs on old MicroUSB charging which is slow compared to my Note 3.
    I should have just kept it as 4.3 though even on Sammobile I can't find a UK Three 4.3 version so I'm find of stumped.

    Personally I suggest the phone I have the Nokia Lumia 1520, its a 6 inch screen running on windows. At first I had a few issues with it, but now they seem all to have disappeared. Probably because I know how to use it now :P
    But I went from iPhone 5 to my Nokia and I don't think I'm ever going back, downfall yes there aren't many apps or games. But the size is brilliant and it just works really well and I just love having such a big phone (Sorry phablet) I couldn't have a phone smaller that 5.5 inches now I don't think

    Hey Scot, long time no speak!!! Yeah I totally agree, now I have a big screen I never want it to go haha nothing less than 5.5" for me too (as long as we are talking about phones still)! The 1520 would be my only other choice but due to the lack of some of the features my note 3 has like some of the things listed above I'd miss them all too much, may wait until Nokia bring our the new 1520 equivalent and then look at changing

    Hey mate I know :P hope its going okay at work now

    Haha yes defo talking about phones still :P but ye just can't stand doing stuff on peoples iphones now adays as they are so small
    I think it might be a while till they bring out an equivalent as the 1520 has some amazing specs and its just a beast of a phone :P
    But it does lack lots of features but I have noticed it has a lot of nice features that I haven't noticed on android or iPhone.

    There's a cool thing with windows phone where you can automatically share your screen to any internet enabled device by either scanning the QR code on the phone or by going to a specific website. This isn't constricted by your personal network either

    Fair enough everyone has their own likes and dislikes The Apple TV airplay feature is very good!
