It 's a great purchase! Big enough to use ii easily as a pad, reliable battery and smooth operation! Everything works fine and the orange color really stands out!
People asked on the bus where to get it! :)
Hello. Thank you so much for taking time to review this unit. I'm so happy you like the phone so much. It's a great phone indeed.

It is a bit complicated although this phone is definitely rootable. What I have done is to replace the stock Recovery with Clockworkmod Recovery first, followed by flashing through the latter, the root-busybox binary. JB 4.1.1 seems to have been patched, so the one-click rooting for previous Android versions no longer works.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience of this phone. We appreciate it.

Took half a day to get used to the size, now I'll never use anything smaller again. Runs REALLY well. Most of the internal storage is allocated purely to media, and you can't store adopts in this space so internal memory runs out quick. Also this phone CAN'T BE ROOTED, I paid the extra for mm to do it but they couldn't, I tried for weeks myself but at this stage (July 13) it can't be done. Had the phone for months now. Great phone but am constantly reminded of the pricei paid for it. The USB cable that came with it was broken and could only charge, not send data so I had to modify (hack) another one i had. Also i had to drill out the hole around the headphone socket so the jack could fit in properly without them constantly disconnecting. Don't get me wrong, its an amazing phone and I still happily recommend it to people, since everyone who sees it comments on it :) no regrets at all. Oh yeah, and the camera is very average, always grainy. But I've only listed the faults so this sounds very negative, but it is really good. Fast, very smooth, no lag, bright screen which looks great, comes with android 4.1.1 and runs most tablet apps too. I'd buy another if this one was stolen today.
thank you for taking the time to post a review on the Star Note 3 its well appreciated. About the cable we can send you another one. Maybe the one we sent was damaged during shipping. To root this phone please send us email at email@example.com

I ordered the Star Note 3 and paid for express shipping and it came fast! Only 6 days to Canada!
I've had this phone for a few weeks now and I must say it is brilliant! It works with both my Bell and Rogers networks. I am currently using both networks at the same time on my Star Note.
The 6 inch screen is what really makes this phone for me and it looks excellent with great color and definition also very responsive.
With plenty of storage possibilities via Micro SD, replaceable batteries, both front and rear facing cameras and loaded with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean! This has definitely become my favorite smartphone!
Thank you Merimobiles for a great product and great service!

Yesterday i received my star note 3 and i have the following problem:
when I make a voice call, the screen of the phone is always intermittent and hence i don´t have acess to the other options displayed in the screen, namely the speaker and disconnect the call. They know how can I solve this problem?
Remove or adjust the screen protector mostlikely the proximity sensor is blocked, thank you

Make sure that you have installed the proper maps and compatible GPS software on the Star Note 3 , to get the first lock with the GPS it takes time, after the first lock its faster, thank you

My 1st phone had major issues (spontaneously Shutting off, screen blanking out when a call was placed), but I think these were caused by a bad solder joint on the circuit board. They replaced the phone and made sure to test the new one before sending. Jay was good about correspondance, but unfortunately, because of the time lag in communications between US & China, it took over a month to get my replacement phone. I've been using for over a week now and it is great, but not without issues. The two big ones are: 1) GPS takes a REALLY long time to lock onto the signal (like 3-5 minutes). Google maps wouldn't even work most of the time. Get the "Searching for GPS" message. So I switched to Mapquest and that works but it just takes a long time to figure out where you are. It has a general location quickly, but to really zero in on where you are, that takes 3-5 minutes. 2) The camera is really bad in low lighting situations and there is no autofocus. You have to touch the screen first to choose where you want to focus before you take the picture. Other issues are that the data connection sometimes goes out and the "back" key stops working. Both of these issues can be fixed with a reboot, so it could be that they are caused by bad interactions with different apps and the OS. This phone is very new and I think that these bugs could easily be worked out with a ROM update, just got to get the software chefs out there to cook one up! :-)

Super huge but it is almost useless on a bright day even at 100% brightness. But it is ok under the shades.
Pretty good and quite fast
The wifi b/g/n even though the web only specifies b/g
Very disappointing. Terrible picture on low lights. Also not too good on normal lights. Both were tested using standard setting. However when I set the ISO to 100, camera is ok when there is sufficient light.
Very good. I used IGo software so I don't use data. I turned off 3G when testing to make sure that it only uses GPS engine.
I was after the white front with orange back. I thought that would be under color: orange. But I was wrong. Orange color means orange front and back.
This phone needs an extra long micro USB plug ( not the cable but the plug) because of the body design.
I do have a problem with the interface (swipe, press, etc) when the phone is charged using other charger (I have usb charger from htc & samsung) but it is ok when using its own charger.
My conclusion: if you need big screen and don't use camera a lot and use your phone in shades/ indoor then get this one.

I bought the star note 3 8th november and got some email problems so it delayed a little bit until shipping. When shipped it arrived in 3 days (DHL EXPRESS) from Hong Kong to Barcelona (Spain).
It is as promised. The smartphone is perfect! (untill now). From now on i will see how long it lasts. I hope at least 2 years would be perfect :)

I have had my phone for a day now and I am happy with it. Compared to my Wildfire S it's like going from a push bike to a Ferrari.
The size is perfect and I am glad I purchased a larger screen rather than a 5inch one especially for reading emails etc. The extra size makes the keyboard use ideal - lots faster and less typos. Some may find it a bit on the wide side without being to bulky, easily slips into an inside jacket pocket or handbag.
Video and Sound is very good and a lot better that I expected - the camera is not stunning but will do for quick snaps.
I do have a lot of programs installed so it is pushing it to the limit so the battery management app is definitely worth installing. As for the battery, very good at the moment and should last all day with light use.
One criticism is that it does not come with a cradle charger for the spare battery but I have purchased a galaxy note battery cradle charger that should do the job since the battery spec and size are virtually identical. I purchased a spare battery so I can carry a spare and have one on charge. If this phone had a gig of ram would have given this phone 5 stars.
If you are looking for a big screen phone this is definitely a good choice especially if you are looking at purchasing a tablet too.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review its well appreciated, thanks
