It'd have been better if you could make it so it was just a swipe from the side.

I still prefer how the N9 handles things, how often on a small screen would you need two windows open? On a 7"+ tablet, I could see.

I don't know, after using my N9 for two years, Android (granted, I realize part of this issue is probably TouchWiz) just seems non-natural and horribly unintuitive.

If you are using multi-window and, say, have two apps on the screen, you can do a long press on return and the arrow will go out of view without effecting the two apps on the screen. You can also set up shortcuts with other side launchers like unity launcher (also need another app called multi window manager + pro version) and start up floating resizable apps on top of that. There are other apps that let you also set up 4 windows on your screen (multiwindow plus) if you like. Of course, you can also open more apps at the same time by using shortcuts.

Here's a couple things you should do with your NOTE 3 so that it doesn't suck:

1) Root (easy CF-Root, or use Root de la Vega to keep Knox 0x0)
2) Custom Recovery (easy TeamWin, or use kn0x0ut keep warranty)
3) Customize:
- A) EFS etc etc backup
- B) MODs like Xposed Framework, Volume Booster, SecMMS, Unlimite MultiWindow, Call Record etc etc etc
- C) Easy install VillainMOD
-----or Manually install your favourite TW ROM, Kernel, and Radio

...by doing this your phone will keep MultiWindow and keep the official S Pen functionality (palm reject, pen alarm, pen remove, circle window, official app, etc etc). It will get rid of all that bloat, saving you a lot of memory, battery life, data and make things smoother than an iPhone 4S). In addition it will use Samsung's fantastic first-party Apps like Phone, Messaging, Camera Apps without the lame drawbacks.

You should also grab these fantastic Apps that I recommend:
- Apex PRO (best launcher imho)
- Kii Keyboard PRO
- 500px PRO (help support CF dev)
- SwitchR PRO (you can make swipe up from the bottom launch Recent Tasks list)
- Titanium Backup PRO
- Root Explorer PRO

- Sixaxis App (use Sixaxis, DS3, Datel controllers in supported Apps, also maps universal screen actions)
- Xposed MODules such as (XPrivacy, Adblock, Tinted Status Bar, XBlast Tools, GravityBox, Xposed Additions, Xuimod)

And while you're at it, I recommend these accessories to compliment your phone:
- This awesome case
- This awesome screen protector
- This memory card
- This desk/bedroom cradle
- This car cradle
- This car fast-charger
- This controller to use the Sixaxis App and play games
- And this mount/diy to place the phone over the controller to make your very own Nvidia Shield and play Apps, GTA SA/Vice city/3, PPSSPP, DraStic, Reicast, Winulator, FPSe, Mupen64, VGBA, Super GNES, iGensNoid etc etc.

Ehm, we already have a Samsung Galaxy Note thread. As for this thread's title, ALL Dave's threads are about "latest and greatest". "We" don't need a new one, only Dave's ego does.

Code:

Latest is not always greatest, but always nice to be first with 805 and perfect for this thread and my ego . Anyone know about bootloader...

Will be interesting to see which of the players to launch the fastest chip worldwide...G3 or HTC is my bet...why not jolla or canonical.

Is that a finnish muumi troll...

Samsung doing like Nokia did 5-10 years ago. Have a position to invent niche products that no one else can afford. Question...will they stay on android too long...
