Galaxy Note 3 Issues

by MochaLatte411 / October 2, 2013 12:52 PM PDT

It's been acting up a lot since I bought it a few hours ago. Random things like apps weren't downloading from the play store and the pedometer says I've already walked 1400 steps when I've been sitting on my couch since I came home. Anyone else having these problems?

The main problem I really want help with though is the gesture to make the display smaller for one handed use. It's a feature in the settings but no matter what I do the phone won't acknowledge the gesture. Could anyone tell me how to get it working? Thanks!

Reset it

Since it's so new, you won't be losing much. After you perform a factory reset, if it still acts up it's time to visit your carrier for a replacement under warranty. And if necessary, I'd push them to replace instead of repair since it's a day old tomorrow.

Yeah I think I might do that. I just wanted to see if anyone else was having these problems before I went through all of that trouble. I still feel like the one handed gesture is a me problem though lol. I've watched a video on youtube on how to do it but I still can't quite figure it out. Either way, I'm gonna go reset the phone now. Ugh.
