International Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gets another bug killing update
The International version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, known as the SM-N9005 in the geeky side of town, has just received another OTA update taking the unit to firmware version UDMJ6. The update weighs in at 116MB and includes a fix to the reactivation lock. This lock requires you to sign into the phone with your Samsung account after a factory reset, and the phablet came out of the box with the default switch "on" for the feature.

While the reactivation lock could help lock out thieves like it is intended to do, coming to market with the default on might make it difficult for a legitimate owner to sign back in if he or she doesn't remember the particulars of the Samsung account associated with the phablet. As a result, this update will turn the default position to "off". If you are a new Galaxy Note 3 owner and you want the reactivation lock on, you need to do it yourself by going to Settings > General > Security.

After being repaired thanks to the update, Galaxy Note 3 users will now be able to reactivate the direct pen input and the one-handed windowed mode after setting up their device to work with the Pebble smartwatch. Lastly, the update brings some changes to the virtual QWERTY keyboard.

I have used many smart phones before the Note 3 and Samsung Note 3 truly stands out.

I still thinking how to make even better use of it may be sign up digital cartooning and drawing classes.

Those that have other phone should be happy with their respective phones.

i second that.. by far the best phone out there IMO and ive a lot of phones..used the original Iphone, the nexus one, Gnex, Nex S, Nex4, GS3, GS4, Blackberry, plenty Nokia phones, and O2 Atom windows phone (not the lumias - if they had come before Android then would have jumped).

Everything about this phone (note 3) is awesome, heck there are some flaws like the speaker grill sound and the awful Touchwiz being a nexus fan i prefer stock Android.. but i like the s-pen and can live with the Touchwiz for now.

How does the Galaxy Gear correlate with my original statement? Actually, what is your point to begin with?

If the note3 was that great then how can you completely take out its companion out of the picture? hate to bust your bubble fanboy but if you post an overstatement someone is going to take you back to earth from planet fanboyhttp://m.cnet.com/news/living-with-the-galaxy-note-3/57609150?tag=TOCcarouselMain.1, I'm sorry but you can't be trusted with such a comment....ugh fanboys

Maybe because I rather spend $300 on something else, such as my phone bill possibly? It's cute that you assumed and made an ass out of yourself. Go ahead and call me a fanboy. I rather be a fanboy than someone who blatantly hates on people. No one likes haters dude. Now go outside and do something with your life.

You don't even know what you talking about. You still don't have a point or argument, and you're a waste of time. You're a complete joke. Like I said, go outside and do something with your life.

Man just give up. Usually the one who is biased is the one who said it first. You came to this article for nothing. Just to hate that's all.

If you talk about the new Lumia 1520 then you are right.
