If you buy the premium Note 3, maybe you'd want to look stand out but what if someone has the cheaper version of it? Wouldn't you feel ashamed?

Many apps don't allow you to hide them even you installed special apps to do so. when play some games u can accidentally press the button. and in wet conditions, it didn't work. physical button is sure better.

If this is exclusively for third world countries, I hate you Samsung.

Okay now here it is. Note 3 fragmentation. Gross. Why can't Samsung just make one Note 3 and not release too many variants of it? There are already too many S4s.

Not again, what a mess. They should name it Samsung Galaxy S4 Max.

I think they should really change their design. It's quite awkward to see a phone having same design having much more features than me!
P.S. I am a Grand owner & I was comparing S4

I wish that they going to change the name for the downgraded SG Note III so that the buyers won't confuse when they going to purchase a note III.

I wonder when Samsung will get rid of that annoying physical keys and trade it in for on screen. Same goes for HTC. Huawei, LG, Motorola and Sony has done so. The plastic part can stay although a much better plastic that's more appealing could be utilized.

Mega 6.3 display puts the Note 2 display to shame. LCD is good. AMOLED is so dull and Burn in.

LCD is way better than amoled for longevity. Amoled degrades way too fast, especially the blue sub pixel. If i had to choose between the 2, i would take lcd anyday. Burn in sucks

Why not just rename mega 5.8 to note 2.5, as this is their budget note 3/ stopgap note
