I take back what I said in my last post. I just tried my Samsung S4 charger and it works on the Note 3.
Note 3 = AMAZING !!!
Worth every penny !!!
I just got my note 3 and it's amazing. Unfortunately some of the tricks with the s pen (which was in the note 2) aren't available anymore but on the other hand there are many other stuff which compensate. The design is smooth and simple but the new features in here are really great. Conversely, the advantage/disadvantage the note 3 has is the new usb 3.0. It's great cuz it transfers data really fast and everything, but the availability wont be as spread as the standard usb 2.0. Other than those minor details, the phone is fantastic.
I like this Note 3, except for huge its huge bezels. I would have chosen this instead of LG G2. Hope Samsung starts to copy LG in trimming those ugly huge bezels, then I might buy Note 4 for my wife.
Bunyip22, 28 Sep 2013Does your note 3 have fm radio? Which model do you have? No it doesn't , mine is 9005 with snapdragon 800 . To be honest even if it has FM radio I won't use it . I prefer using Tuneln Radio app (online radio) to listen to tons of Heavy Metal and classic rock channels , rather than trashy music that they play at the local Radio stations !

The Note 3 is not that bad BTW .

I've been using the Note 3 (N9005) , updating from note 2 . Here is my pros and cons.
- super fast, did a heavy usage and gaming . So far no lags and normal heat. Improved S pen. Nice leather on the back
- best screen and angle viewing I've seen to this date. Best multitasking and very cool and useful multi-widow (you can chat with 2 contacts from whatsup at the same time!).
- very good battery life , 32gb built in memory + microSd . MicroUSB 3.0 that transfer files super fast and charge faster the the standard 2.0 USB. ( it's backwards compatible with microUSB 2.0 ) so no worry here!
- very good camera ( like the S4 ), Samsung did a good job not sacrificing the camera quality for the sake of making a business mobile.
- you can handle the note 3 with one hand, but the Note 2 felt a little comfortable than the 3 in terms of one hand use.
- more and more boltware by sumsung ! But you can remove most of them without rooting
Bottom line. The note 3 is a beast mobile, I really want to change from Samsung note 2 to something new and different , my list was ( Sony Z1 - Lg G2 - HTC max one )
Z1 had a a poor sound quality cause of the water resistance thing and shockingly bad photo processing despite the great hardware camera ! Lg G2 and Max one ... I will Never Ever buy a phone that lacks MicroSd !
this note 3 is 95% same as samsung galaxy s4.. Overall samsung galaxy s4 is best.
I had a quick play with the Note 3 in a store here in the UK. I just found it a little underwhelming, I guess, especially for it's ultra high price tag. I own a Galaxy S3 and I was hoping to replace it with this, but I won't do it. While the screen was undoubtedly impressive, the speaker quality was quite poor and positioned badly, no FM radio at all, the build quality didn't feel too wonderful and I guess I was expecting something a bit better with the software as well.
Except for iphone launch this has been tops on leaderboard for hits for ages.I was one of the folk back then that said Note would be a niche product but I was so wrong..Where I live there are more women using Noye than men which is even more surprising because women usually go for petite items,(not being sexist)..I am getting interested day by day and may get Note 2 to start with because by the time Note 2 comes down it will be a while.
YAP RONY, 27 Sep 2013have been receiving error message 'unfortunately indexservice has stopped' almost every time o... more"Unfortunately, IndexService has stopped."
I have the same too...
Note3 can accept only a limited number of files in extSdCard!!!
I don't know why???
But you can try:
Eject your extSdCard or delete some Files in extSdCard... so it WILL work!
If you have the same warning, I'm sure that you have more than 2Gb in extSdCard.
This is too BAD of Note3!
Why u not added higher megapixle for front camera add at least. 5 mega pixel.
