Question Looking for best phablet cameraphone..note3 dead!


Prominent Member
Oh well, that'll learn me... Samsung wouldn't fix my Note3 under warranty as its been rooted! I did ask how rooting it would cause the failure in the LCD panel, but they weren't interested!... With a bit more research, I perhaps could've found out what they look for, or reset something, so they wouldn't know.. a little difficult without a screen! I was just able to put a Note3 official rom back on before the screen blacked out completely.

Anyway, I was aware that rooting could void the warranty, I just wasnt expecting to have a problem with the phone.. especially not 1 week before the warranty ran out! I assumed putting the stock rom back on would be sufficient enough... alas no!

So Im faced with paying £150 ish for a new panel, or thinking lets get a new phone!

Im now tempted towards many of the none mainstream devices, dont want to pay over the odds for big brands...

My main requirement is It must have a great camera and a 5.5"+ screen.

I did have a OnePus2 invite, and did actually go to use it, but just missed out on the activation timeout, but there were a few negatives with this model, but I suppose theres bound to be a few cons which such devices...

Any suggestions would be welcome!

Just pointing out think you're missing an "n't" from your first line as in "Samsung wouldn't"
as It completely changes the point of your post.
