As a Note user from the first device up to this 3rd and even with a Note 8, I could say they all outdo any of Apple's devices.
An iPhone is best described as a very good music player that has limited video playback support and phone functions. It's your choice for minimizing yourselves to the most basic rudimentary features of the smartphones of the masses. It can't do the dozen or more things I've been mentioning I personally need for daily use like the Galaxy Note 3.
Apple has resorted to copying Android features currently. 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 for remote controls. 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.
Humor us with your arguments.

One of the more useful features I really much like is the Air Hover with your finger or pen about an inch off above the screen to preview contents.

The One Max is simply way to big and heavy and uses old technology.
Romania, 17 Jan 2014I ask everybody to try HTC One Max. it's far better than Note 3. Note 2 is the same as note 3... moreNo, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is absolutely not the same or equal to an HTC One Max. The absence of a Wacom digitizer alone has a huge difference - something the other manufacturers are missing for drawing and/or note taking. Doing them with a finger or capacitive stylus can't be so accurate and no control for line weights.
An HTC One Max is heavier, at more than 200g.
An HTC One Max has a lower resolution camera.
An HTC One Max is huge and can't fit on a top shirt pocket.
An HTC One Max has a slower processor.
An HTC One Max has no infrared blaster or a temperature sensor.
An HTC One Max has a lower video recording frame rate and can't do 4k video recording.
An HTC One Max will wiggle with its curved back on a flat table.
I can't be bothered with its finger print unlocking. I don't bother playing audio via speakers as I'd respect other people's sanity. The Note 3's speakers are loud enough. Just so much lesser for a heavier and inconveniently larger sized device.
When Note 2 came to power everybody said, it's a great phone but after few months people were revolting against it. There's no much taboo on this phone especially if you come from note 2. IPhone 5s remains the best. if you want android HTC or Sony are the best. Don't be fooled by popularity do a thorough quest prior to purchase a phone. iphone 5s it has no competition yet.

All of a sudden this is what appears on my screen, "Unfortunately,rServicesHomes has stopped." i need help on how to activate it and bring my phone back to normal.
An interesting reconfiguration of the NFC antenna is that it's situated on the battery for the Note 3, as opposed from the Note 2 which was on the back cover.
That's why the battery has 4 prongs than the usual 3. Useful information to test if the battery is original with NFC tags.
Excellent device...colorfull options and from my point of view the best option right now
Y.E, 17 Jan 2014Should i wait for S5 or buy a note 3?If you want a phone now with a large screen get the note 3 if the screen is too big for you and you are able to wait go for s5. i prefer note 3 due to bigger screen size
This phone is best choice for all business users. Big screen, fast processor, lot of memory and many other advances. I am using it for constant email correspondence and sometimes even for document edit as I am always in haste.
Y.E, 17 Jan 2014Should i wait for S5 or buy a note 3?Hi Y.E. if you can wait for another 3 months you will have s5 and note 3 to choose from. But note 3 is perfect phone today. It has good looks along with great specifications. Really useful in daily life. Features like s pen, knox are really wonderful. Screen is excellent even in sunlight. No problem in handling and keeping in pocket. Just go for note 3. And one more thing, buy s view cover also if you are going to buy note 3. It will do most of the simple things you will expect from your device like answering calls, taking pics, creating quick memo and above all protecting phone from damage even if it will drop.
not good very expensive phone and too large size.Features are not too much attractive as per price.
