Updated to kitkat version. RAM usage is minimum as compared to jelly bean. Looks bit faster and smooth.

To get an idea what the Note 3's camera capabilities are, check out this video:

[deleted post]Another silly and untruthful comment. You really do not have a Note 3.
The S Note are synced with your Samsung cloud account! You will always have every S Note file backed up. I have all of my S Notes since Note 1. You would also have backed up with Kies from time to time.
All would be lost if you didn't sign up for a Samsung account, or you're not saving copies. Another way of saving and saving all your S Note files are via syncing with other cloud storages like Google Drive, Dropbox. I even go the extra with Foldersync so there's a set copied onto my micro SD Card.
In the world of electronic data, you would need triple the backups and have cold or cloud storage. You'd be a fool to think otherwise. I handle dozens of new e-files everyday for my work, and I backup every week.
So, up yours and your "perfect" iPhone. We all know EVERYTHING isn't permanent.
I have a architect colleague who has been an Apple purist - he has a Mac Pro desktop, Mac Pro laptop, all the variants of the iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone since the 3G, and even the iPod Nano.
He got the Note 3 for his plan retention of a telco, saying it's a replacement of his iPod. After a few days of complaining about how tediously difficult it is to navigate around the Note 3, he actually finds the Note 3 supplementing his project management better and he has been jotting and sketching more about design ideas on his Note 3.
His iPhone 5s became a secondary device for his other number.

If they don't, then what the hell are the service centers for? They do break down for no apparent reason. They do freeze. And now Apple has official announced trying to fix the random crashes in iOS7.
Abaddon-ISJ5, 23 Jan 2014LOL of course iPhone 5S. Note 3 runs in un-unique OS named Android.. you'll find that OS even ... more"Note 3 runs in un-unique OS named Android.."
WTF, man. Android is the most versatile and custom operating system out. I'm sticking to it and I enjoy the many things I can do that iOS users like you don't know about. I'm also developing my own Tasker sequences. Android is an open source for developers to tinker. Unlike Apple, Android has independent developers running different strains and are striving to improve on it all the time, discovering new ideas for what an ultimate OS is. I believe iOS is not spared from being a perfect or polished operating system itself with the official revelation (at long last!) that Apple is fixing a random boot problem. It's all over the internet news. Android is now with Google, the company which is providing iOS the more accurate mapping system that doesn't put you in peril. Android is unique, and that uniqueness stems with its customization, unlike closed ones that are limited in features.
"iPhone is unique and very secured with no Anti-virus apps (means very safe}that cause a lag,crashes or forse close."
News flash, Apple took out their claim to being the most safe on their website. Even their finger print scanner can now be by-passed. Again, Apple official has confirmed fixing random crashes on iOS7. Apple has been dodging the issues of crashing by not affirming it via you finding yourself back to your main page. Now you find it restarting on its own when you have a 30% or below battery level.
"And its not even a quad-core like this which eat a lot of powers and increase your electric bill."
You don't even know how things work. A charger has a rating of a light bulb. 5W or slightly more for a 2 to 3 hours of charge is minuscule on an electric bill. The Note 3's quad-core processor only works with one core for normal daily tasks. Its 4 cores come into play for heavier processing power like games. The electrical rating of an iPhone charger is practically the same as most of premium devices or tablets. You actually plug in a iPhone more or you need to be carrying a power bank so that the iPhone last till night for moderate to heavy use. A Note 3 can run the whole day on a 16 to 18 hours stretch with almost 7 hours of actual screen time for moderate to heavy use. You can't say that for the iPhone5s.
"trust me! I'm an Android user too but iPhone give me a better exp."
An iPhone can give you a better experience with limited possibilities, you mean. iPhone users come here at a Note 3 commentary page to affirm themselves by bashing what's actually offering a whole lot of features. I am one who has concluded that an iPhone is not the best for my PERSONAL needs. Apple has now resorted to copying Android features, screen size and accessories like a smart watch. iPhone can NEVER replicate the extra features the Galaxy Note series have. No memory expansion. No NFC for a bit of connection automation. No Wi-Fi Direct to any device. No Bluetooth data transfer to other device. No infrared blaster as a remote control. No ambient temperature and humidity sensor. No user removable battery. No direct wired to projector or TV. No stereo audio for video recording. No Wacom digitizer system.
