i have seen Note 3 on display yesterday and had my hands on it, looks soo ugly and design looks so oldish. I rather stick with my Note 2 and wait for update. So disappointed with the new design. No way im gonna buy it. Sorry Sammy

desire x, 29 Sep 2013GSMArena , when are you going to be ready with the Note 3 review and differences between S800 ... moreGSM Arena already posted their comprehensive hand-on reviews on the Note 3, twice. Though it was on the dome version, so wait for the full review on the retailer model, I'm sure it will be out soon
Where are the NFC antennas for the Note 3? I surely cant see them on the back cover as it was for the Note 2.
GSMArena , when are you going to be ready with the Note 3 review and differences between S800 and Exynos versions ? iPhones were launched after Note 3 but you already have reviews of these phones.
Please make it quick.
Hey I'm from the Philippines too. I am getting my unlocked Note 3 tomorrow. I've never been a Samsung fan. I've had Note 1, S3 and S4 and none of which stayed with me longer than 3 months. I hope Note 3 will be different because I love the form factor. Even though it's almost the same design, I love the leather-like back cover and the less curved shape of the phone.
Bunyip22, 28 Sep 2013I would have thought that as the note 3 was thinner, lighter, narrower with a grippier back it... moreComparing the Note III with the Note II side by side yesterday for 30 minutes, I just find the full HD screen very refreshing. The Note II is quite good that I can hardly think I'd throw cold cash for the Note III as I did for the Note II.
The hardware and software improvements of the Note II compared to the Note I were leaps that I really wanted the Note II. Note III isn't a vast leap from the Note II for me, but I'll probably get it with my data plan renewal in 2 months time. I'm still waiting for the battery review for the Note III just to make sure it's worth it.
By the way, Smart (Philippines) Communications LTE has greatly improved and I'm encouraged to get this unit for the faster data service. Globe just sucks.
Hi This is best Good smart phone good battery backup fast moving options but no fm&demo video.....
Why buy this phone because if you travel internationally (outside Europe) and usually insert a local SIM card when in those countries, the Note 3 will NOT be able to use the local network. It will lose all mobile connectivity with the exception of emergency calls.
“For example, if you travel to the USA and insert a SIM card issued in the USA, you will not be able to use the Note 3 for any voice calls, text messages and mobile data connection. It will work via a WiFi connectivity only.”
Good smart phone good quality good battery backup fast moving options one draw back is no fm&demo video........
Very fast and very long battery life ! The best smartphone out there....
I just bought it yesterday and the most powerful android ever made..battery arghhh you can download almost 4 hours and still have 80%...hahaha best ever
