White and black. Black and white. Every new flagship phone seems to offer these choices before anything else - you never get, for example, a phone launching exclusively in neon green. Today Samsung is officially expanding its offering of Galaxy Note 3 colors to bring the line a little bit of high-class luster. You'll soon be able to purchase the Note 3 in Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black, and Merlot Red colors.

If you've been hankering for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the high price for Verizon's contract phone may be off-putting. Wirefly is offering the Verizon Note 3 for $199.99 with a new contract, but Amazon has one-upped them - they've got the same phone-contract combo for just $169.99. The price for both is $249.99 ($50 off Verizon's price) for returning customers.

You could take the view that Wirefly has a better deal here, at least if you're willing to wait.

Update: Welcome back to Android Police. And now, here's an AT&T representative with a report on the recent Galaxy Note 3 software update.

A software update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was made available for AT&T customers today. It provides general performance improvements.

Thanks, AT&T.

AT&T's Galaxy Note 3 is barely out of the starting gate and it's already got an OTA update, probably fixing a few issues discovered as the Samsung phone was disseminated to a few hundred thousand users.

It's not often that I get to fit the entire changelog of a software update in the headline, but today's the day. Verizon has shared details about an upcoming update for the Galaxy Note 3 that does two things - strengthens connectivity and improves sound quality. Though Verizon hasn't provided a proper software version number, the build hitting devices is apparently VRUBMJ7.

If you've got a Samsung phone from before the Note 3 and you're on an American carrier, you're probably wondering where your Android 4.3 update is already. The leaked schedule below has been verified to Android Police by two reliable sources, and shows when the 4.3 update is scheduled for the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, and Galaxy Note II on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. This update will also add support for the Galaxy Gear to these devices.

Sprint customers typically complain about the lackluster data coverage, but they at least have generally been able to make phone calls. Yet many customers who went out and bought the Galaxy Note 3 from the carrier found that even that ability was lacking. They suffered from garbled voices, popping sounds, and all about terrible audio quality leaving them wondering why they bought a phone over a tablet in the first place.

Hey! My name is Marques Brownlee and I'm a pretty heavy Galaxy Note 3 user. Some of you may already know me from the MKBHD YouTube Channel. To others, I'm a new face to AndroidPolice.

So in no particular order, other than for the convenience of the video, here they are.

Last week we reported that the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had a root method from a couple of enterprising gentlemen over at XDA. The same team-up of designgears and Chainfire has now reproduced the Root De La Vega root method for Verizon's Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), which isn't quite as appropriate as far as the name goes, but it's just as awesome.

The same unfortunate conditions apply for the Verizon version of this exploit.
